Derby Day Party 5/3/08

(from left to right, Dick Swizzle and some cowboy)

I was once again honored to DJ at Michael Boyd's annual Derby Day Party. This was the first time at Union Hall, and the place is so big (and was way crowded) I'm sure much of the music got lost in space. But that didn't stop me from coming up with a set that was chock-filled with Derby-related material. I'm already looking forward to next year.
