It’s all Shakin’ in Beacon!

The Lovely Ladies of Quinns!!

It was a last-minute affair. Just as the final drought-ridden days of August were slipping away, the powers that be at Quinn’s—the groovy ramen noodle bar in Beacon, NY—looked at a calendar and noted that Sunday September 4 was the day before Labor Day and perhaps some sort of excitement should take place. A call was made to Hudson Valley’s top reet music DJ Pete Pop and he was asked to bring in a night of boss sounds. Mr. Pop accordingly gave the night a name: Shakin’ All Over; drew up a poster; and rounded up some local DJ action, including the reliable DJ Hardly Quinn and the functional Phast Phreddie the Boogaloo Omnibus. The three of them arrived on time and laid down some sounds that went out of bounds!

Pete Pop had the joint set up as if it were another Do The 45, only better—he moved the DJ booth to the stage to give the DJs a bit more room. He had some cool new videos and new posters and well, he just brought the magic, that’s what! Did I mention he has great records and knows how to play them?

DJ Hardly Quinn has spent the summer DJing at local surf music events and car shows. She’s got some pretty good records and when she runs out, she borrows some from Pete Pop!!

Miss Nancy G made some spicy vegan brownies and chocolate fudge for the event and it was all devoured accordingly!

Fudge and brownies!!!

Phast Phreddie the Boogaloo Omnibus, thinking he was only going to play a set or two, brought a small box of records and ended up playing all but about five of them! Here’s a list of all the ones that were played at Pete Pop’s Shakin’ All Over:

None of these records are for sale.
