Saturday April 15th we welcome special guest Meegs along with resident dj Patrick Barry
(Flash Nightclub – Washington, DC)
Meegs was first introduced to electronic music in the early 90s when she attended her first rave at the Capital Ballroom in Washington DC. Back then the staples were Scott Henry, Bad Boy Bill, Doc Martin, and Charles (gonna make you) Feelgood, who she touts as her first favorite dj. After moving to LA and meeting some local djs, she was invited to play percussion (congas, djembe) at various underground parties around Los Angeles. This spawned her career as a local promoter first, which led to djn and eventually hosting her own weekly parties SPIN, XPRESSION, HAPPY HOUSE, HAPPY HOUR & GET WELL SUNDAYS in LA.
Keeping with her roots and traditional musicianship, Meegs is known for incorporating live music and dancing with her sets. Her organic, soulful sound invites live instrumentation where you can hear her preference for funk, latin, reggae & celtic beats fused with soul driven lyrics with emotional content. My goal is to continue growing the HOUSE music community in DC & beyond, collaborate with other musicians, and attempt to make the Irish jig cool! Meegs currently holds various residencies in DC, produces her own music & mentorong under John Bowen of the Video Killers in the art of video-djing.
