John Holt on Saturday

John Holt in Concert, on Saturday!

Born in Kingston Jamaica in 1947, Holt was one of the biggest Reggae stars by the early 1970s.

Four years ahead of Bob Marley, in 1973 John Holt's Album 1,000 Volts of Holt became the first Reggae Album to break into the UK's Top Ten, spawning Top Ten singles entries for Help Me Make It Through The Night and Touch Me In The Morning.

Although subsequently eclipsed by Marley, John Holt is regarded as the first mainstream artist to bring Reggae music to the masses and he released 56 follow up Albums and toured regularly all over the world until his untimely death in October 2014, aged 67.

Join us on Saturday for original reggae with John Holt.

Party starts at 12pm SL (8pm UK) with the concert an hour later at 1pm SL.

Last night in London City..

The plonk was flowing and you all showed yourselves up disgracefully.  I on the other hand, was sober as a judge, a gentleman, witty and debonair.  At least, that is how I remember it, and I'll drink to that.

Enjoy the video of the antics and don't forget Substation today at 11am SL time (7pm UK) where we can carry on, thanks to a long weekend here in the UK.

The video is in hi-def, so click the little cog to change settings.

August Bank Holiday in London City

You have to feel a bit sorry for the people in real life who deferred going to Notting Hill Carnival on sunny Sunday and decided wait until Bank Holiday Monday instead!   Traditional British Bank Holiday weather again.. Heavy rain, not letting up for a moment  and it has been going on all day here in real life London where we are based.

Luckily in the Virtual London that is London City in Second Life rain in our regions is at scheduled times, half an hour after sunrise courtesy of our bespoke Immersive Weather System. 

Enjoy this video of the Bank Holiday weekend in London City and keep an eye out for Billy using our exclusive Portal system halfway through the video to seamlessly move from London City(1) to London City3, part of the Experience Tools System.

Have a great day and don't get too off your face... I'll drink to that!

 So much happened over this Bank Holiday  weekend it was hard to keep up, good job Roving Reporter Ruby was on hand taking photos and notes so I could relay it all back to you. So buckle up, we are going on a journey......

The weekend as always kicks off at Substation, our fun club found near the hub in sim 1 Soho, Roy and his team are ready to kick start your weekend, with fun chat, and good old songs to get your toe tapping in this quirky, busy club, everyone is welcome who has party on their mind

So, this weekend is no different. Not only is it Bank Holiday weekend, but it is the Notting Hill Carnival.
Notting Hill Carnival is Europe's biggest street festival, it's an annual event held every year since 1965, on the streets of Notting Hill. It's held over two days, on the August Bank Holiday and usually attracts around one million people, making it one of the largest festivals in the world.
So of course we wanted to bring it to Second  Life, putting our own Unique spin on it, which is why We are the most popular destination on the Grid.

Saturday 25th August 2012

As always every Saturday, we have an awesome open air event in Regents Park, be it The royal Jubilee, Gay Pride, The Olympics, Great Groups, Fantastic Bands, or like this weekend Awesome  LIVE Singers, that's right this weekend we saw the return of one of our favourite Artists, Miss Adevina Citron, this hot little fire-cracker packs a powerful punch, Adevina has such a beautiful and powerful voice she has fans who follow her all over Second  Life.

You never know what you will hear when you show up at her concert, but you will love it.  It could take you to a simpler time of early hits, a popping mix of contemporary rhythms that keep your feet tapping, or anything/everything, Adevina will deliver! She enjoys fun, cheeky banter with the audience that keeps them coming back for more, no stranger to London City, we love her concerts and so do you ,again people queuing to get  into the sim to enjoy their weekend with us.

later to Juiced in our Adult sim, this is a themed club, a new day, a new d├ęcor, Saturday whisked us to a scary Graveyard, for best in spooky, there were Ghouls, Vampires, Goblins, Zombies and Ghosts, with music to match the event, we all had a great time.

Suday 26th August

London City Victoria, has a double whamy, not only are we celebrating Notting Hill carnival, but also the opening of The Crown pub. London City is ranked Adult, so we can really let our hair down and offer more than ever before, with an adult nature, what a hoot, people are loving this sim, declaring this is the best sim in SL ( but we already knew that  :P .. ) The Crown opened its doors and what a response,  people flooded in for their best in Event, oo lala if you have a nervous disposition, you may want to read on but  looking sideways :P  fun and giggles all round.

It's the big day of The Notting Hill Carnival events started at 2:30 pm  / 6:30 am slt, in the Victoria Hub, which  had been made in to an open air concert area, kicking of with "best in come as you are"  what could be easier? Turn up, party and win Lindens .... how fabulous!! With yours truly as Dj and the beautiful Ainurne as hostess, we got the celebrations well and truly off to a banging start!!

 But it didn't stop there, two hours of non stop party, straight into the next event... which was "best in Floats" residents were given the base of a  Carnival float which, they could build on, and transform into anything they wanted, ready to parade around the streets of Victoria, what a hoot,

our residents have more talent than you can shake a stick at, two prizes one for best float and one for best effort, absolutely amazing, and so funny watching everyone waddling round the sim with their creations and Fierce on the tunes, this is what its all about!! then straight into another event, it was The Crown Pubs turn to party in the park, "best in Carnival"  with Dj Torric and the beautiful Loulou as host, the outfits were amazing, people really pulled out all the stops this weekend, ( are you keeping up? we aren't even half way through yet!! ) Torric play the best Carnival and reggae music while Loulou kept us going, with fun chat.

Next up Dj Willy, again playing the best Carnival music to really make us feel like we were at the Notting Hill Carnival. Then on to our main show, we had Bob Marley and the Wailers in concert, what a blast, everyone singing along to his hits, including "Buffalo Soldier", "Stir It Up" "Three Little Birds" and many many more, Bob got off stage and partied in with the audience who thoroughly loved it.
Then it was the chance of Club Juiced to take the reigns, and take us through to 2am / 6pm slt, with yet another chance to win  Linden Dollars with a "Best in Red, Gold and Green" event, the sim was packed  full of partying people all day non stop.

Mean while in sim one Soho, Roy and his awesome team in Substation played their Sunday evening gig, with a club full of people enjoying some Golden oldies and having a fantastic time.

Monday 27th August 2012

The party continues on Bank Holiday Monday, again in Victoria, London City Adult, the hub was transformed into a hot Jamaican club, with two levels for dancing, and a pool,  complete  with diving board, the event was of an Adult nature and people flocked to take part ( I said flocked ) ... what a hoot, everyone loved it and we attracted people who hadn't been to London City before, but who said they would love to keep returning, as it was so much fun, and they weren't lying, it was!

Then later to Bar Soho, for best in Carnival, to bring the celebrations to a close, I was Dj and Willy was the awesome Host, again the costumes were fantastic, we all danced and chatted while I played a mix of Reggae, Soca, Samba and Bachata music it was an awesome night.

So that is the end of Carnival, I would like to thank all the staff who took part this weekend you guys rock!! seriously!! and to all the Resident who make it all worth while, you are all awesome xxx

and that's it from me for another week, I will see you in  London City, for more fun and frolics.
