Anna has always loved music of all kinds (it’s genetic – she is Welsh!). One of the things she particularly loves about blues (both the music and the dance) is the breadth and diversity – there are songs to suit every mood and a way to dance that expresses it. She loves everything, but is particularly drawn to slow gooey songs, sweeping flowy songs, elegant jazzy songs and anything with plenty of dramatic hits!
With its Grungey post industrial look, this newly renovated venue is perfect for a blues party. They provide top notch sound, lighting, and ambience.
Gagarin is curated by an independent art community with a deep commitment to animal rights, therefore a majority of their revenue is donated for the benefit of shelter animals.
Floor: Hardwood. Not a waxed dancefloor, but wood.

IT WAS A HOT EVENING IN JULY
Liraz and Ben were on their way home from their Blues party and, as was their habit, bickering about music:
Ben: "You know what would be fun?"
Liraz: "Tell me what you think would be fun."
Ben: "To organize a Blues Exchange."
Budgets were made, calculations argued over, venues spoken, musicians harangued. It turned it was fine.
