Wednesday, February 3rd saw the official opening of Caitinara Bar as a music venue at Holly Kai Park, with the launch of our headline weekly event, Music with Anthony.
Hosted by Inara and Caitlyn, Music with Anthony features the music of Anthony Wesburn, a Second Life DJ with 10 years experience, and is held every Wednesday from 4:00pm to 6:00pm SLT.
For the opening night, Anthony had selected a playlist of hits from the 1960s and took requests for that period from those attending, interjecting the music with anecdotes, casual chat with audience members and jokes, all of which were enjoyed by those dancing on the deck, and kept them evening flowing alongside of the great music.
With champagne on offer (when I remembered to put it out!), and the bar open for any other refreshments guests desired, everyone enjoyed themselves and the conversation flowed along with the music. Not even a slight dunking in water for a couple of arrivals eager to join the fun before things had properly rezzed dampened spirits (note to self: add railings to one side of the boat docks!).
As well as the regular weekly sessions at Music with Anthony, there are plans to have special theme evenings as well, possibly starting with James Bond, after the session was played out with Shirley Bassey singing Goldfinger.
So, if you missed the opening session at the bar, be sure to make a note in your diaries:
Music with Anthony
16:00 – 18:00 SLT every Wednesday
