Sundays Sneak Peek…don’t miss this show!

Oh myyyy what a set this one is! Our dancer has made most of the little pieces of this set herself, wait until you see it! This set involves ghosts and skulls and the underground. If you have ever seen a show at Winds, I’m sure you can figure out who this dancer is by now! Come on over tonight to Winds of the Sahara and see this set and all the others by the amazing dancers we have. Doors open at 4:00pm SLT and the show begins at 5:00pm SLT.

See you there!

Another amazing Sunday at The Winds of the Sahara is upon us!

We have so many amazing sets this week, it was hard to choose just one as a tease for the sneak peek. I chose this one, because her set, dance and mood of this set is truly amazing, to the point you will be shocked at the ending. She does not dance with us very often and when she does, she does not disappoint that’s for sure. Come on over TONIGHT at 5:00pm slt and see not only this set but many other fun, sexy and amazing dancers and dances! See you there!

 

 

What’s going on at Winds of the Sahara tonight?

THIS is what is going on tonight! OMG people, this set, this song….absolutely awesome and fun and the song is a killer earworm. If you want to see some amazing sets tonight, you need to come to Winds and see them. You won’t be disappointed I PROMISE you this.

I do suggest because there is about 17 people in this set you turn your names off so you can see it all! How do I do this?

Avatar>Preferences>General>Name Tags off. and that’s it! You can turn them back on after the show.

Until then, put this song on repeat and enjoy until 5:00pm slt. See you all there “let them eat cake and maybe we’ll be chums.”

Two shows this weekend at Winds of the Sahara!

Yes folks, TWO shows this weekend! One is on Saturday at 1pm SLT and the other is our regular show Sunday at 5pm SLT.

I thought I would offer you all a sneak peek from both shows to get you as excited as we are!

SATURDAY!

Sneak peek #1 is from Storm Large and the song is called “8 Miles Wide”. She is a “singer, songwriter, actor, and author. She attracted national attention as a contestant on the CBS reality television show Rock Star: Supernova. For many years solely a rock artist, in recent years she has branched out into the theater and cabaret world. She currently balances performing with her own band in venues around the country and touring with the Portland-based band Pink Martini around the world.” (Wikipedia) This is one of the funniest songs I have heard in a long time…and the set for it, well….you have to see it to believe it!

SUNDAY!

Sneak peek #2 is from Kid Rock and it’s called “New Orleans”. This is a cool 70’s groove-ish tune about heading down to New Orleans and the Big Easy to see a friend and enjoy all the entertainment that that little part of the world offers. Gumbo, music, parties, crayfish pie, and the bayou. LAISSEZ LES BON TEMPS ROULEZ! Come let the good times roll with us!

Hope to see you at both shows! Sat at 1pm SLT and Sunday at 5pm SLT.

Have an awesome weekend!

All You Need Is…(to be at Winds tonight for another amazing show!)

This Tuesday is Valentine’s Day. Depending on your view of the day, you can love it or leave it. I personally have no issue with the day as it is just another one for me, I have all the love I need in RL and SL, so Valentine’s Day is just a day I might get some chocolate or coffee or something like that….BONUS!

One of our dancers thinks on this day “All You Need Is Love” and this is the song they are choosing to perform TONIGHT at Winds of the Sahara at 5pm SLT for our Valentine’s Day show. You don’t want to miss this one, this dancer makes a perfect cupid!

Next week we will have TWO shows! Yes two! One on Saturday at 1pm SLT and another on Sunday at 5pm SLT. Stay tuned for some sneak peeks of these two shows!

See you all tonight!*sings along…Love Love Love. Love Love Love….LOVE LOVE LOVE*

Winds of the Sahara~Valentine’s Day sneaky peek!

What is Valentine’s Day? Is it love, is it a hate for this holiday? Is it hearts & chocolates (yes please), perhaps the colors red or pink? Maybe there is love is in the air (yes that IS what you will smell) at Winds of the Sahara this weekend. We will do our Valentine’s Day show on Sunday at 5pm SLT. Don’t know what to get your love for the big day? Bring them to a show and give them some eye candy! Maybe it will put you both in the mood? Of course at the Winds we all know not every song is going to be all about the good side of love, don’t we?

Saying that….my choice for the sneak peek might put you in the mood to cuddle and get warm….but I know that the performance from Babypea might not be as *cuddly and warm* as the song leads you to believe! That is the only hint I am giving you! Be warned, be prepared, bring a cuddle buddy or a teddy bear and watch an awesome show on Sunday at 5pm SLT! See you all there!

Sneak Peek~ I think the aliens took over Winds….1/29/17

Tonight at 5pm SLT Winds of the Sahara will be entertaining your eyes and ears once with an amazing show full of gorgeous sets, interesting costumes and amazing songs! I heard there will even be some *eye candy* for the ladies!!

I wanted to pop in and set you all up with a little preview of a song that you will hear tonight. I won’t be telling you who is doing the song….that’s no fun, or posting any pictures of the set but I will give you a little sumthin’ sumthin’ to look forward to!

I will tell you this, there are some tunes from the 80s and 90s. Some you may know, some you might have never heard. I love the fact that we all choose songs from across the genres and years, I get introduced to so many new entertainers!

Enough already…on with the sneak peek shall we?

Back when videos either wowed you or left you scratching your head…here is Herbie Hancock – Rockit

See you all at The Winds tonight at 5pm SLT…be sure to save some time and come dance with us up on the roof after the show and continue the fun! See you there!

 

Come and take a ride with us! Show Review 1/15/2017

Hello everyone! What a crazy night we had at Winds on Sunday! Some serious acts, some funny acts, some very strange acts too, so that’s a typical evening at Winds *laughs*. Before I begin letting you know all about the acts, I need to tell you all about Shanny, the gorgeous Shanny! She was with is again this evening looking deliciously amazing as always, meeting and greeting everyone as they came in to find their seats and get ready for the show. Shanny works hard to keep the show moving and let you all know what is coming up next and if we had some zipper issues back stage. Be sure to show this amazing woman some love! She means a lot to us!!

Up first this evening was Baby and she took the award for the strange act of the evening. Baby danced to Freaks by The Creeps, and the freaks came out for sure! Gunner was in this act as a….erm…..octopus/squid man all in pink with tentacles in his mouth doing crazy, crazy dances and running around Baby. In comparison, Baby looked normal! She had these things with eyes and some that were all scary teeth that floated and moved and spun. Baby floated too (you know that weightlessness in space thing…). I know I’m not doing this act justice…so if you ever get a chance to see it, go!

Next was Rina with Skipper Dan by Weird Al. I love this man, I love his songs, I love his humor, I don’t know how I have never heard this song. It is about Skipper Dan and he is sad as he is a tour guide on the Jungle Cruise ride (which I swear I have been on this ride in Disney….) and he hates his job. He has 34 shows a day, same old thing every tour every day so he asks “somebody shoot me I’m bored to tears”.
The set was simple, Rina dancing on the dock before the ride began but the emotes were the BEST. She said these were actual emotes from the Skippers on the ride. This one was my favorite…”Skipper Dan: Some of our scouts here at the world-famous Jungle Cruise claim they have spotted tigers in the waiting area the last couple of days. But we know that’s ridiculous. After all, tigers are striped, not spotted.” Great job Rina, you made us laugh for sure.

3-rinaLina entertained us next to Santana feat. Chad Kroeger – Into the Night. She had Josephine, Alexis Queenie and Mona with her and her set was gorgeous. It had a warm tropical feel, breezes and a cute drink with a little umbrella. The women all wore gorgeous gypsy-like costumes that fluttered and flowed around them. The set changed mid way from a cafe to the desert at night. Awesome set Lina!!

Devlin was there when the curtains opened and he dance to Stereo by Chameleon. Devlin was wearing a big ‘ol fro and a jazzy disco outfit clearly from his years when he danced to Saturday Night Fever, watch out Travolta, Dev is here! His set was a turntable/HiFi and he danced (round on a) record showing off his hot disco moves. This set was pretty awesome and I loved the whole feel to it. Great job Dev!

Nara was next and she danced to Chris Spheeris – Juliette. She had Gracie and Ariel joining her and they were all faeries in gorgeous green wings and costumes. Her set had a Celtic feel to it with the faeries fluttering in to a beautiful green lush forest glen with animals and building ruins someplace secret and deep in a forest somewhere.
All I know is this is a place I want to find and escape to. Thank you Nara for the lovely set and the few minutes we could all dream of such a place.

Who was next? Our lovely Winnie dancing to Yo – Yo Ma, Kathryn Stott – The Swan (from Carnival of the Animals). I don’t know where this women finds her costumes but damn, I need to go there! They were gorgeous and PINK! Winnie had Jo dancing with her as a ballerina with soft pink wings that were more bird-like than butterfly, draping on their arms. The song and the dance was so lovely with fall trees and a magical floor and come on….its Yo-Yo Ma….(sleeps a little)….so so so soothing.

Ame and Zach were next dancing to Snow Patrol – What If the Storm Ends. I have to admit this is the moment my SL decided to not show them to me so I have to ask Winnie for some visual help. The set was post apocalyptic with rain, broken down homes and burning tires. Zack was dressed in a sort of steampunk outfit and Ame had an angel of darkness feel to her. It was *the planets last dance*. The danced alone and then came together in the end and danced….seems kinda sad thinking about it….I know I didn’t see them but the set was fantastic!

8-ame-zach

I was last and I danced to Smokin’ In The Boys Room by Motley Crue. I had Kyshra, Lil, Lina and Winnie with me looking all bad ass and rough in their leather and jean jackets and cigarettes. We danced in the boys room (duh) after I had to visit the principals office for not having my homework because “the dog ate it”. HE DID! Promise!

Sunday 01.08.17 Take Two

In keeping with our crazy idea to do two shows in one day, 4pm rolled around in what seemed like mere seconds and we were all caching, rezzing, warming up, re-stretching those hamstrings and cracking those ankles in preparation for the regularly scheduled show.  Shanny was once again out front looking like a goddess while the rest of us made sure we were doing the right set at the right time in the right order 🙂

1-shanny

Baby was our white hot opener with GTA done by Red Lips and Bruno Mars (my new boyfriend…so hands off!!).  She was joined by her inner demons…strange little monsters, Gunner, SoCo, Fuki,  Nevar, Ame, Zach, Gerty and Kyshra. This dance was about giving in to the little voices in your head…be they good or bad, we all have them.  Baby’s are just a little creepier than the ones that I think I have in my head.  It was a wild set, very cool, very Baby and it made me think a lot about what swirls around in my head and what I do with those thoughts.

2-baby

Jo was next with a set to Brandon Fleicher’s “Will O’ Wisps”.  Jo was a dryad and Seb was a hunter.  This set was so pretty!  Jo chose a tonal theme to build the set with, cool shades of blues and greens and whites and greys….Seb was noble in white and grey with his hunting hounds by his side and Jo was a shade of  grey with a few strategically placed blue-green leaves.  Star particles danced delicately in the background. The dance was pretty and the scene was a fairy tale fantasy…beautiful Jo!

Ariel took us to another fantastical lunar landscape with Lindsey Stirling’s “Stars Align”.  She was joined by Nara and Gracie all decked out with amazing white hair and everything.  Our ladies started out on their own planets, floating up above and from there they came down to the planet surface…all gorgeous in white.  Streamers whirled around as they flew…..great effect and very pretty costumes!!

4-ariel

I was up next and I chose Lana Del Rey’s “Young and Beautiful”.  I think I could do a whole years’ worth of sets to her voice…it’s like warm, silky cocoa with a touch of bourbon and chili powder….My set was a fantasy set built from one of my favorite stores…Cerridwen’s Cauldron.  It was all flowers and trees and rainbows and fog and particles.  I found these wings I fell in love with and sort of ran from there.  It was a true fantasy set and I hope you enjoyed it with Lana 🙂

5-winnie

Nara was next and she took us straight to the islands with a wonderful set to “Viva” by Christopher Spheeris.  She was joined by Gracie, Ariel and Beebs. Her set had these platforms that all of the dancers started on that melted into the floor, it was cool and then there was the set…a tropical paradise.  So very tempting when you live in New England…I wanted a boat, a bikini and Coco the cabana boy to bring me drinks and rub my feet…just sayin…..The ladies were beautiful, the set was beautiful and a little ray of sunshine snuck into my life and I hope into yours!

Dev did a solo to “Forget About The Blame” by TSO featuring Lizzy Hale.  This song is beautiful, I’d never heard it. His set was a beautiful liquid sunset with flowing fog and accenting candles.  Dev was wearing a flowing white tuxedo and looked smashing. This was a moving set, the dance full of emotion.  Amazing Dev, you broke our hearts just a little.

7-devlin

Queenie, our little, red-headed irreverant ball of energy headed out to “M.I.L.F” by Fergie.  If you don’t know what it stands for…I suggest you google it on urban dictionary because I am NOT spelling it out here!  Queenie was joined by Kysh, Lil and Darling and a more questionable bunch may never have set foot on a stage in SL *giggles*.  Let me tell you folks….if I need a laugh…any one of these girls are who you go to for irreverence, spiciness and all and all fun, which is exactly what this set was…all of that rolled up into one hot group of girlies!!

The evening wrapped up in one of the most sets I’ve been a part of in ages.  Seb chose a dubstep of Dance of the Sugarplum Fairy called “Sugarplum Mayhem”.  I’m not sure I need to say much more than that, but the amount of neon on this set was insane.  Jo, Baby and I were ballerinas.  Seb was the mouse king.  Jorgio and Jag were mice, Gunner and Dev were surly nutcrackers.  I say surly because they were wearing wife-beater nutcracker tops.  There were neon boxes, neon trees and neon ballerinas.  Through it all there were mice and nutcrackers swirling and marching and everyone was dancing all over.  It was amazing!!

What a fun night!  Lots of different types of sets, groups, solos…a real mix of everything…which is what makes dance in SL so much fun for me to watch.  I hope you all enjoy what we do as much as I know we do.  Thank you Rebecca for taking such good care of us, thanks to our sponsors and thanks to our dancers and wonderful fans.  We are so happy that you come and share your Sundays with us…I know for me..it’s a great way to kick off the week ahead.  See you all next Sunday for more dance in the desert!!
