It's been a while since I posted, but SO much has been going on !
We have all been so excited about our brand new Clubhouse ! It's going to be soundproofed so we can party hard and let people still have quiet if thats what they like. The stage is amazing and is huge and three feet off the ground ! The DJ equipment we put in is AMAZING ! We are also wired up for killer live sound. Jay and I did a set on the new equipment this weekend and it was so clear and crisp ! This place is going to be a great venue for lots of fun events and shows from live bands to comedy, DJ's, drag shows, & more !
Bearapalooza was amazing this year. The current stage wasn't in yet the but we used the new clubhouse as a pavilion and set up stages and equipment. All the artists were fantastic. We even and belly dancing bears and burlesque too ! We had almost 150 peopele here, and the Atlanta Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence helped us raise $700 for Tattnall C.A.R.E.S. (a local cancer charity)
I am excited about this summer! Our next big thing is our annual Trailer Trash Memorial Day Weekend. Atlanta Armorettes "Amber Divine" and "Knomie Moore" will be joining us and we are working on a DJ dance party and some other activities. One of them will be a showing of Sordid Lives and a costume contest.
Other little bits of news ... Jay and I moved up to the house at the front gate and we like it a lot. the house we lived in before has been turned back into a 2 bedroom cabin rental. We also put in a new office where we now check everyone in in comfort. We got a new staff member named Larry, who has been a big help, and Eduardo and Roy have their friend Cesar here helping out for a while too. There are two new baby goats and the Canadian geese are back and just had some babies! We have a lot of full-time residents now and we always enjoy doing things together like our Tuesday Potluck Suppers. With everything being so busy, I have been trying to find time to record some new music. I have been inspired to write new songs with a gospel style and theme, so it will be interesting to see how this next record comes out. We also did a gig at a local cafe and I think it is going to become weekly.
Well thats whats going on in my world for now.... come see us sometime at Roy's Hideaway !
