Kread Fallen appointed General Manager of Area 54

SL Area 54 - Area 54 SL announces the appointment of Kread Fallen as General Manager of Area 54 in SL.  Kread, a long-time and well-known DJ and club owner in SL, is a perfect fit for us, and we're lucky to get him.

He's a very talented guy, and his enthusiasm for the Area 54 vision, not just in SL but across the metaverse and internet, shows clearly when you talk with him.  Handling everything from DJ line-ups and event-planning to advising on strategy and PR with TJ, Persia, and Lap, he's the key person to go to for anything relating to Area 54.  Adding him to our team is a huge plus for us, and we're looking forward to seeing our modest beginning begin to grow into a huge success with him onboard.

Stop and say 'Hi!' if you see him around when you visit the build!

Get Yer Bunneh Slippers at Club 54 - While They Last!

Okay, after numerous inquiries and repeated requests indicating a strong interest and high demand on the part of our visitors, we've finally managed to do it:  we now have a bunny slipper vendor at Club 54 so you can all get your very own pair, just like TJ's!

DeeezNutz and TJ show off their kicks.
Folks, these things just look damned cool, and they make an ordinary dance animation really come to life.  On top of that, they have the added benefit of helping keep the dust off of the dance floors!  These things are quickly becoming the standard footwear at the club, so hurry up and get yours while supplies last!  The vendor is located near Quisp in Club 54, and they cost only $L200 - a tiny cost to pay for all the coolness you get, plus they are customizeable!  Get yours today!

BOSL Radio Celebreates 3-year Anniversary @ Club 54!

Club 54 was one of the venues in SL selected to help celebrate BOSL Radio's 3rd year birthday party on the April 16th.  Hosted by Persia Bravin, DJs CottonCandy Teardrop, Diaphonia, and Anubis Beorn provided more than 3 hours of non-stop music for the 100-plus guests who stopped by to wish them well.

All in all, it was a great time, and we want to congratulate BOSL Radio and those who make it great and wish them continuing success!

We have LIFTOFF!

The Area 54SL Opening Event went off with only a couple minor technical hitches early (and most people didn't even notice them), and was a huge success!

We had over 220 guests at the opening, and the place was packed for more than 5 hours of live streamed music!   We don't have the totals for the online viewers, but we had a healthy number throughout the event watching from the internet.

Everyone who was there seemed to enjoy themselves, with the great music, unique environment, and amazing array of guests making it an "Event" with a capital "E".

We'll add some recordings to our Livestream.com autopilot so you can check it out at your leisure.

Thanks to Emmo Wei and Petlove Petshop for great filming and editing, Persia Bravin for her promoting mastery, Lapiscean Liberty for all the other things, and especially to DJs Cari Lekebusch, Gragee Pikanen, Pb Recreant, Evil Laa, and the Cap'n for providing some really amazing musical vibes.

And thanks also to everyone who came - the team put in a lot of work to make this a success, and to see and hear so many people enjoying made it all worth the effort!

Now we just have to keep it rolling.....  ;)

We are now live!

You can watch the Area 54 opening event LIVE beginning now at either of the below links:
