Do The 45 is the spectacular dance party held on the last Friday of the month at Quinn’s in Beacon, NY and hosted by DJ Pete Pop. Mister Pop brings psychedelic lights, groovy posters, video enhancements and, of course, fabulous records. For the event on May 27, he invited a bunch of his friends to come and spin a few records for the occasion. Those friends included DJ Hardly Quinn (no relation to the club, but she is a Do The 45 regular); Peter Aaron (local music scribe and neat guy), the Stately DJ Wayne Manor (it was his birthday weekend!) and Phast Phreddie the Boogaloo Omnibus.
In celebration of Wayne Manor’s birthday, Miss Nancy made some double chocolate cookies, lemonade cookies and vegan brownies! THAT, folks, is a celebration!
All DJs played some pretty boss records. Although DJ Pete Pop brought the psychedelic lights, groovy posters, video enhancements and tons of fabulous records, because there were so many guest DJs, he was only able to play about six records! Well, maybe twenty-six.
Phast Phreddie the Boogaloo Omnibus only played ten records starting at ten o’clock. Here they are:
- Sylvie Vartan–Dansons (RCA Victor; France)
- D’Swooner’s–Mickey’s Monkey (Philips; Japan)
- Les Baronets–Hello Je T’Aime (Canusa; Canada)
- Los Freddy’s (canta: Javier)–Me Siento Bien (Anahuac; Mexico)
