WOW! That was some party! A nice crowd (all told, over 60 avatars) gathered to celebrate the long-awaited release of DRAGONFLY‘s new album, AMPLIFICATION. Joel shared his musical journey with us by a specially-made video for the occasion, and shared the songs of the album as we traveled along with him and Dragonfly bandmates as the steps in making the album unfolded. What a special treat this was! To boot, those who supported Joel on this journey received their Indiegogo perks during the event. It was such a pleasure to see everyone enjoying this truly exceptional music in the company of Joel and friends.
Thank you, everyone who could join us last night! It was an honour to host this event, and we appreciate the opportunity. If you couldn’t make it, you can still catch Joel in-world, as he returns to a performance schedule soon – including an upcoming date at Ce Soir and one at our friends’ GMetal and Thea‘s place, Ground Zero, this coming Wednesday! Don’t miss out!

As many of you know, Joel Eilde – known in-world as DRAGONFLY – and his bandmates (in the band Dragonfly!) have been recording a new album. AMPLIFICATION is ready to launch, and we’re having a party to celebrate – at Ce Soir TONIGHT. Join us from 6-8 PM SLT for the festivities!
We’ll be viewing a video presentation of the recording journey and hearing these truly innovative, leading-edge songs through the two hours of the celebration. There will be lots happening and a good time is guaranteed as Joel (DRAGONFLY) returns to Ce Soir following the SL hiatus for the recording. Many of you contributed to the Indiegogo campaign or made $L donations in-world to support this creative effort. Your donations are paying BIG RETURNS with this outstanding collection of original music.
This sonic joy is a captivating mix of high-energy rock, jazz, blues and electronica woven with rich guitar and thought-provoking lyrics. Ranging from satirical humor to dark, ethereal textures, DRAGONFLY’s music is unquestionably of the highest caliber, and this new album presents it beautifully. So…come join us for the celebration!
Catch this magic carpet and we’ll see you at the castle! http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Ce%20Soir/102/183/1002
