Some of My Most Favourite People
Cruising with the FABULOUS DJ Dallas
Some of My Most Favourite People in the LGBTQ community is DJ Dallas. Dallas is as talented as she is sweet and kind, and very giggly (you always just want to give her the biggest cuddliest hug when you run into her in the community). Those who know Dallas agree with me, and those who have hopped on her dance floor agree that she knows how to transfer the crowd to a magical place.
So, when I heard Dallas is doing this boat cruis dance party I was excited. Now I am really looking forward to being out on the water, but first let’s have a quick chat with Dallas.
Why a boat cruise?
I wanted to offer our community asome alternate options for summer parties instead of being stuck indoors on a beautiful summer day/night. Like the rest of the world…we love water in summer, dancing and the moon…so, they got it!
You had one in the middle of summer, how did that one go?
The cruise last month was a sell out with a lot of fantastic people demanding another one immediately. That’s why I show up, because people ask me to. And as long as they are dancing, making memories and sharing the “experience’ of life…count me in!
I can’t think of a better reason for someone to do what they do lol. So, when did you start DJing?
I started DJing many many moons ago. LOL. Then after I left the city and moved to suburbia, each time I went back to party, there was nowhere to go. SO, selfishly, I created a PARTY where we can meet, celebrate and dance …. again. SO much happens that bonds us when we dance.
Why is it about music and DJing do you love?
I never ever tire of playing music, dancing and creating fun spaces for the community. It stirs me very deeply. Watching the celebration…and then keeping the memories. I love when friends reunite after many years, or watching new love bloom in front of my eyes, even being a part of anniversaries and birthdays. It is the gift that the music gives back to me. No cares, just good clean fun! I love Latin, 80’s, today’s top hits, Caribbean, sexy hip hop and classic anthems (even a country song might be slipped in if the crowd wants that!) I bring the ‘kitchen party to you! Being from Newfoundland, music, food and laughter are so deeply engrained in me as the WAY to celebrate. Add some food and cold bevvies! BAM…the recipe for FUN! Top that all off with WATER, SAILING and the beautiful moon overhead…NOWWW you are talking!
