With DARA’s Party After Xmas is fast approaching and we couldn’t be more excited! The Xmas magic has been flowing all around us. The energy of the season is a beautiful event that brings everyone together. What brings people together more than a party?
Kopo has joined in at our last few practices for the party. Having him in on our practices has been a joy. Kudos to Kopo for hauling his steel piano to every practice. It’s a full 88 keys with all the sounds you would want. The synth that Kopo brings into every practice doesn’t just have great sounds, but a steel body that’s just as heavy. The light and airy sounds that Kopo’s harp ad are a unique contrast. Teaming up with Kopo for this party has been a celebration in and of its self.
With the holidays fast approaching we’ve been in our workshop crafting some holiday treats for ya’ll. We’ve had a ton of fun creating all aspects of the experience. We’re excited to be sharing a special holiday setlist, and have been having fun with a green screen to get some Xmas magic happening. There’s been so much energy going into the set we can hardly wait to show you what we’ve been brewing for the party.
Getting all of the trimmings for our party has been a party in and of its self. We had a whole night to play with a green screen getting photos and video for the show. I had never messed with a green screen and it was a blast! Having a blank slate to work with really opens the imagination. It’s a real mind trip to have the green and know that there are limitless possibilities. Even before we saw how it turned out it was great to see the power of our imaginations at work.
Preparing this party together has been a joy. We’re so stoked on all the partying that we’ll be doing with everyone after Xmas. With all the craziness of the holiday season we’ll be happy to blow off a little steam, and throw a few post Xmas drinks with our friends.
Sending love from DARA,
