Between May and September there will be something special going down for you all. Running on its fifth year, Brew Manager of Corner Brewery, Daniel Peron aka DJ Dannyboy hosts a chill laid back event called “Halcyon Sundaze.” It’s a type of setting that involves good beer, sunshine, and excellent music selections by various visiting deejays. For those of you newcomers, here’s a little something Dannyboy had to say about this event:So tell us, what is Halcyon Sundaze?    The definition of the term “halcyon”: 1. calm; peaceful; tranquil: halcyon weather. 2. rich; wealthy; prosperous: halcyon times of peace. 3. happy; joyful; carefree: halcyon days of youth. HS is a lazy afternoon in the beer garden, sipping a cold beer and chatting with a family of friends, while dj’s dig crates and play summertime sounds.  It’s a culmination of the very definition of the term “halcyon”.Very cool, sounds like a great way to spend a lazy summer afternoon. What can people expect at Halcyon Sundaze?  Expect to relax, laugh, enjoy and discover.  We set up shop underneath the awning of our outdoor patio in our beer garden, where you will find Cousins Vinyl, LLIC and the dj’s table.  Rain or shine we share a glimpse of our perfect Sundaze with one another.  I brew a special small batch of beer for each event.  This month’s will be an American IPA, with loads of citrusy hops.We can see how much of a great time this has become but what made you decide to host this type of an event?  At the time, it was mainly self-serving.  I wanted a place to dj and my friends and owners of Corner Brewery, Matt and Rene Greff, loved the tunes I would play/share with them.  We had discussed how great it would be to have an occasional event that allows us to relax in the beer garden and listen to tunes while wasting the day away before another busy work week.  After the first one, we knew it would be a hit.  It took a while to slowly get the word out, but before we knew it, we had a small following that has continued to grow over the years.  With the addition of Cousins Vinyl in the second season, we took the event to another level with record picking and crate digging adding to the afternoon’s festivities.  This year we will be partnering with LLIC as well to help add an artistic aesthetic to our cherished “day of rest”.Heck yeah, we are pretty excited about incorporating the art element. Of course its always a good time but can you recall one of the best times you had at a Halcyon?  Last summer, 6.13.10.  It was our second HS of the season.  The weather was perfect, the garden was full of friends and family.  I had dug throw Cousin Geoff’s crates and created an entire set of records that I played later that evening for all to enjoy.  It was completely unplanned, organic and off the cuff….precisely what I had intended. That was a personal favorite for myself.  But every time an old friend or new guest dj throws down a great set, that’s truly my favorite time spent in the garden.Right on, that is one of the beauties of digging for those dusty gems. Cousins Vinyl has been an awesome addition to this event. However, you tend to have quite a few visiting deejays come out to play every month. For those who haven’t been there yet, what is the range of music you play at these events?  Wow, that’s a long answer.  I could go on listing bands, groups, songs, etc.  But I would sum it up like this:  Halcyon sounds like an old childhood memory.  It’s a picnic with your family, a beer shared with a friend catching up with old times and nostalgia in the airwaves.  It’s the sound of prosperous times, and you will hear everything from down tempo beats and breaks to reggae, soul, folk, funk, deep house, afro-cuban, electronic, experimental, jazz, alternative rock, old and new.  Guess it wasn’t that long of an answer
The first event kicks off this Sunday. If you have nothing going on come on out and enjoy some chill tunes and some pottery being made by Chris Sneed.
