City Limits Discotheque (Waldorf Cabaret)
Sipreano w/ special guests Da Capo and C Marie
Da Capo: Da Capo is Ryan Balaski, a tireless advocate of music in Vancouver since the mid-1990’s, first as manager of the now legendary HMV #852 in Coquitlam (best B.C. record store in during the mid-late 1990’s CD boom???) and later of House of Blues and Live Nation concert promotions. Da Capo has helped bring some of your favourite acts to our city and also DJ’d at countless local venues from The Commodore to the dearly departed Ms. T’s. Heavily involved in the music business for over 15 years, Da Capo has amassed a deep collection of vinyl records to get any party started right.
C*Marie: C*Marie is a rare breed. A dancer and music lover with a carefully selected record collection, the lady also known as Christine Dale has played vinyl in Vancouver for over 10 years. New Wave, classic rock, punk, funk, and plenty of soul all get ample airing when C*Marie hits the decks. Groove in amazement as strangers and curiosity seekers become fast friends and family. Don’t miss C*Marie's infectious music magic!!!
It’s our honour and privilege to host Da Capo and C*Marie at the fourth History of Dance. Paired w/ H.O.D. resident Sipreano they will not only evoke the spirit of perfect parties past, but take it right into the future with a classic selection of rock, roll, bass, and soul.
