Spinning Tunes @ Njiro Complex Last Night…

So last night I was invited over to The Njiro Complex to spin some tunes outside in front of Stiggy’s wine bar… whatever it’s called… There was a large crowd sitting at the tables… eating and drinking, people going into the movie theater to see either the Bollywood film or Pirates of the Caribbean IV… I set up my gear right out in front of Stiggy’s place on a small table, and his guys brought over and set up the PA. I figured that it’d be best to stick to jazz/blues/R&B for the most part… an older, local crowd… not quite the place for the screaming garage/punk rock but some swinging, toe-tapping swaying occurred indeed. The folks were, IMHO, pleasantly surprised… and it was a good time. Plus all my beers were comped.
