Every last Thursday of the month..
December 27th
 The last one for 2018 at Danny's
It's been a great year at Danny's but unfortunately we lost one of the main reasons why we were at Danny's in the first place.. Kevin Stacy believed in us and allowed us to continue our vision of taking a Musical Excursion every month. We want to say THANK YOU very much to Kevin & his family that took us in at Danny's and actually supported us while we were there. Unlike some other places, he as the manager helped get the word out about Excursions and helped our Thursday night be successful. 
WE hope to see Kevin and fam up and running again very soon.
We also want to say thank you to the new management and staff for bringing us back into the fold and allowing us to continue doing what we do best, So here's to 2019!!
See you on the Dance Floor! 

Be on the lookout for Dj Uchikawa's Remix Cd Comp.
A special EXCURSIONS remix of "Stomp the Ground"

EXCURSIONS: November 2018

 Sorry for the delay in posting this months events.
For the first time in 8 years we didn't have anything going on in the month of October. 
But thanks to the grace of God, we are back and coming back stronger than before!
It was believed that we were removed from our night at Danny's because of management changes, but we wanted to continue to serve our community as long as Danny's would have us despite the changes. Well I guess we got lost in the shuffle but thanks to popular demand (I think) we were able to regain our Thursday night back.

Every 2nd Friday James Vincent is co-host at club Debonair

and every last Thursday of the month we're back @ Danny's!!!
We forward into seeing our people back at the spot where it gets deep!

In Addition, next month we hope to start something beautiful at the Whistler! Next month we'll be doing a special event on Sunday Dec. 23rd
Come celebrate Xmas holidays with us
