Pleasure Island Reunion
Last September former Pleasure Island cast members got together for a reunion to commemorate their old home. Last night former Pleasure Island club patrons got together for a reunion to mourn our old home. Large crowd last night at Atlantic Dance Hall, the largest I've seen other than NYE.

I nearly always run into PI people at ADH but never so many gathered in one place at one time since the Final Night of the island itself. Lots and lots of Mannequins, 8TRAX and Motion people attending the reunion. Someone told me that even radio station XL106.7 had mentioned it.
DJ's Talie, Tony & Pat were on hand. Have to give credit where credit is due and DJ Pat did a really good job, playing song clusters from the different clubs. When he played Cotton-Eyed Joe I thought perhaps he was paying tribute to PI's Neon Armadillo but I was told that it was actually a popular song at Motion. Here are pics of just some of the people I recognized from the Island; there were many others. Hopefully I've posted everyone that I promised!
