It's been a while since I've posted here, since my DJing took a back seat to life and changes. I just moved to New Orleans in search of more design and architecture opportunities, and have been taking advantage of the prevalence of this city's amazing jazz musicians. This weekend is the San Francisco Down Home Blues Festival, and quite possibly my last event for a while as I start focusing more on my professional life for a while. However, music is not going to leave my life, and so while you might not see as many setlists posted here, I'll try to switch focus more towards finding great artists and songs to enjoy. Hopefully my blog will expand from just blues to include jazz, and will no longer be as restricted to just dance music.

Having said that - here's my first set this weekend. I've been wanting to feature local artists, so all the underlined tunes are New Orleans bands. Enjoy!
