AAHZ 30th Anniversary Party (The Beacham)

When AAHZ club nights began right here in the old Beacham Theater in 1988, no one could have guessed that 30 years later people would still be coming back out to celebrate the music from that era and the legacy that it left. Thanksgiving Eve at The Beacham means it's time for an AAHZ Reunion!
The 9PM dance floor did not foretell what was to come!
DJ Dave Cannalte (USA) kicking off the festivities with a 3 hour set!
Of course we know Dave from Thursday nights at Mannequins!
The dance floor was filling quickly.
The lasers were flying!
 The people were here to relive the good times from the "AAHZ Decade".
In his spare time, Dave does music and video programming at Promo Only.
Blew me away playing Rozalla's "Everybody's Free (To Feel Good), the final song ever at Mannequins! Still brings tears.
 A lot of songs I didn't know, a lot of songs I did.
The bars were doing a brisk business.

You could feel the vibe in the air!
A break dance.....broke out!
Yes, it's true. This is the crowd that only gets out of the house once per year.
Blue lasers!
Pink lasers!
Red lasers!
Multi-colored lasers!
That look you get!
Packed floor!
That magic touch!

When you think of AAHZ you think of Kimball. When you think of Kimball, you think of AAHZ.
You can never go wrong with Go Go Girls Boys!
Packed to the rafters!
These annual AAHZ Reunions have actually gone on for more years than the original AAHZ club nights.  Matters not because that's what the peeps want!
