For the 2021 Fantasy Faire, we are proud to debut a newly christened airship with more space and a bold new look. The Fairechylde is now a fleet! The main ship features an expanded dance-deck and is accompanied by smaller runabouts to her port and starboard sides.
After many years of devoted service, our dragon friend Shahara has decided to retire and spend more time with her family. But she will be there this year in a place of honor so we can say thank you and help celebrate her well-earned respite.
Join us in the Fairelands, as we take our Live at the Fairechylde series to new heights!
A long time Fairelander and performer, Corwyn is one of the finest singer/storytellers in SL. Don’t miss his gentle, witty, laid-back sound as he performs a wide range of tunes from Irish traditional to Leonard Cohen, and much more!
ღ ŞŧíииĄ ღ (xSTINNAx Resident)
For as long as she can remember, Stinna has had a passion for music and singing. That passion has manifested itself in many ways; In choir singing from Danish Traditional to Gospel. In musical theatre; In live shows streamed on YouTube, and here in Second Life since 2010. Wherever the music takes her, it has given her comfort, strength and a lot of great fun over the years. With roots that run that deep, it’s little wonder that she also has a passion for using that gift in support of Relay For Life, and to enrich the One Team spirit.
The Faire DJs, the Party-Builders
DJ Ali Heron
If you’re like us, there is nothing you love more than a DJ who knows good blues when she hears it. Enter DJ Ali Heron who has been spinning the blue in SL for over twelve years and collecting it for forty! Audiences at Junkyard Blues and Smokehouse Lightening get the benefit of her deep catalog on a regular basis, and she is also no stranger to Fairelanders. We’ve been digging her sets for years because there is no corner of the Blues world that her sets don’t reach. Myriad traditions and styles find their way into the mix. If you come away having learned a few new things about the music, it’s no surprise! Teaching is also in Ali’s blood. She may be a college professor in Counseling and Therapy in her First Life, but in her Second Life the lesson plan is all about great music and good times. Just what the doctor ordered! Ali is also fantastic Relayer and is proud to be part of the RFL community and the Faire. We’re proud to have her at the wheel of the Fairechylde!
DJ Aoife Lorefield
Like all the members of Fantasy Faire’s Literary Festival team, Aoife has an abiding love for the music of the Spoken Word and a deep respect for its ability to transport us to far off lands and to pierce the veil of time. She’s been bringing that passion to the Faire for many years now as a presenter, an interviewer and as a member of the team who bring brilliant authors and their works to the Fairelands. Storytelling is in Aoife’s DNA and it is in the Faire’s too! She also believes – as all good Fairelanders do! – that music has the same magical properties as the Spoken Word. So, whether she is DJing for Pagan events, for other communities, or taking the helm of the Fairechylde, she always spins from the heart. Traditional and World music, New Age and Mystical tracks, a pinch of Steampunk and a dash of Rock and Roll. Each turn of the page reveals the next chapter of the story, each track takes us somewhere uplifting. And that’s just what you want when you Relay For Life! (Uplifting also comes in handy when you’re partying on the deck of a dragon powered airship!)
DJ Archer “Rex” Mactavish
Archer “Rex” Mactavish started in Yahoo chats back in the day. He then moved on to internet radio back in the late 90s, the heyday of internet radio, and DJ’d in both worlds. Rex started here in SL way back in 2008. “I enjoy my trade,” says Rex. “I love music, as it speaks volumes. I live by this motto: Where words may fail, music speaks.” Rex DJ’d for Fantasy Faire last year and was so much fun we couldn’t wait for him to come back and take it from the top!
DJ Bain Finch
Bain brings the feel good, upbeat, party music you need to start your day. He’s no stranger to the Fairelands or to the helm of the Fairechylde, and you won’t find a more committed Relayer on the grid. Bain is especially proud to support the Faire because we believe in getting behind the many ways that the American Cancer Society is taking the fight to cancer all across the globe. There is a legendary story that tells of Bain being the first person who tuned into a Fantasy Faire Radio broadcast the first year it was in existence. Zander Greene writes, “We fired up the stream for the first time, just to test it out. Bain was the first person who IM’d to say ‘Whatever this is, keep it going!’ And that’s what we have done, thanks to the support of amazing Relayers like Bain!”
DJ Bard Wasp
The one and only Bard Wasp, a perennial favorite on the grid and at the Faire. Bard’s knowledge of the blues is encyclopedic and his sets are the stuff of legend. He’s also got one of the smoothest voices in the Many Realms. Stop by and get ready for the kind of music that makes you swoon! P.S. Special invite to all scantily clad, colossal ladies! You’re welcome, Bard.
DJ Belleen Morte
Belleen, AKA DJ Shinobi believes in the power of “bopping”. She has been DJing in her First Life for over ten years and in SL for the past four. Shinobi plays fantastic music: Goth, EBM, Industrial, Electro, Witchhouse, and Dark Folk. Like far too many of us, she lost her grandmother to Lymphoma. We’re proud to Relay in her memory, and in celebration of Shinobi’s mother who is a breast cancer survivor. You’re going to want to be front and center when Shinobi starts casting her magical, musical spells!
DJ Briony Writer
There may only be one thing cooler than a Faireland Worldmaker, and that is a Faireland Worldmaker who is also a killer DJ. When she made her Fantasy Faire debut as both last year, she made one hell of a “splash!” Bonus points if you see what we did there. Bri’s sets are fun, feisty and fabulous! Her jam ranges in style but it’s always about letting go and dancing like no one is watching. She also brings the magic to her work across the grid, from fashion blogging for Seraphim, to taking point on the Social Media front for numerous high profile Second Life businesses, to being one of the lead organizers of the annual One Billion Rising in SL. We get tired just watching her! But then she spins, and we forget about being tired and just hold on tight. To quote Shakespeare, “she spins us right ’round, baby, Right ’round like a record, baby, Right ’round, ’round, ’round.”
DJ Camila Ravenhurst
Bringing a killer mix of Industrial/EBM and Gothic tracks to her sets, Camila’s vibe is absolutely perfect for the “Club Fairelandia” scene. She loves to spin and you can hear it in the playlist and in her passion for Relay For Life. Like too many of us, Camila knows what it feels like to lose loved ones. DJing is her way to Celebrate, Remember, and Fight Back. Join us when Camila of House Ravenhurst takes the helm of the brand new Fairechylde fleet, and plots a course to an awesome set!
DJ Caledonia Skytower
Caledonia is one of the talented and dedicated people who have made Seanchai Library a name synonymous with great stories and storytelling in SL for years, in addition. She brings the Dickens Project to life each year, a holiday favorite in the Many Realms! Cale is also working on the new, Second Life based radio station, Virtual Community Radio, and she spins regularly at eClipse Club & Resort – one of the hottest clubs on the grid!
DJ Chief Gunawan
Cay’s is the place to be every Friday night at 9pm, when Chief comes out of semi-retirement to bring rocking tunes all the way from Canada, eh? Take a bit of heritage from the Navajo, add in some Spanish and top with plenty of Irish and you’ve got the secret formula for a guy who rocks you the Canadian Way! Chief also served 20 years as a U.S. Navy – you guessed it! Chief! We thank him for his service, and on behalf of all who are about to rock, We Salute You, Chief!
DJ Chopper Gurbux
Chopper made his Fantasy Faire DJ Debut last year and we’re excited to have him back! He was well known on the Inworldz grid. High Constable Oldesoul told us we were in for a treat and he was right. No surprise because if there is one thing Tinies know, its what makes a good treat! Bring your dancing shoes and a bottle of syrup (just in case there are actual treats)!
DJ ColeMarie Soleil
What do you get when you mix an awesome DJ, a Particle Enchantress and a Music Composer and top it all off with a dash of Fae Magic? You get the inimitable ColeMarie Soleil! She’s been an avid performer, musician, creator, and all around Faerie community ambassador since 2016. Fairelanders know to expect the unexpected when ColeMarie takes the wheel. Blending live and recorded music with her original particle creations, a ColeMarie set is a feast for the senses. In her free time (and it’s a wonder she has any free time given her prodigious creative output!) she can be found flying around the grid spreading her love of music and magic where-ever she goes. A true original, ColeMarie has been bringing her one-of-a-kind performances to the Faire for many years now to the delight and amazement of our eyes and ears!
DJ Craig Obscure
If your taste in music runs toward the Dark Side, this is a set you won’t want to miss! Craig creates crepuscular atmospheres by mixing dark tracks.Underground dark electro, dark techno, acid techno, trad goth. Dim the lights and let Craig take you for a musical tour of the Shadows!
DJ Danilao DeLuna
Self-described as a “proud nerd, elf and chef in RL,” Danilao has been doing the online radio thing since 2009, and here in SL since 2014. His first time in the Fairelands was in 2020, and he loved all of the fun of the Faire so much that he was delighted to come back this year! Playing to entertain a mass of fantastical beings with music he loves and for a cause he believes in wholeheartedly, that’s about as good as it gets for Danilao. We couldn’t agree more! Wait…did he say “elf in RL?!” Dani for the Win!
DJ Dani: Lord of the Llamas
A DJ set in SL can be a lot of different things, but the best ones are first and foremost about one thing in particular: Fun! And that is DaveOSaurus’ cue to enter! In addition to being a dynamite DJ, Dave is also a first class Meshsmith, Blogger and occasional Pirate. Various styles and genres make their way into his sets, ranging from “radio format” track by track sets to Live mixed sets. Audiences at Piermont Landing in New Babbage love his monthly Steampunk shows and he can also be found spinning for the bi-monthly Enchantment Shopping Event and the monthly Flygearz shows at The Looking Glass. Sometimes it’s Soundtracks, Steampunk, Humorous, Rock, Pop and Dance, sometimes he takes it into the shadows with great Gothic tracks. Regardless, Dave is having a blast and makes it his business to see to it that you are as well!
DJ Dave Rave
Because not all of the Many Realms are bright, we’re stepping over the edge into jet black waters where dark things rise up for the Danse Macabre. We can’t say that we’re in “good” hands, but we are in the right ones for this particular journey. We’ve summoned DJ DeaD to give us a tour of the dark side of Fantasy. His infernal mix of Industrial/EBM tracks has been delighting the damned for more than six (six-six) years, and his Wicked Hellektro sets at Club Zero are that perfect marriage of pleasure and pain that some of us crave! Not for the faint of heart, but if you feel a desire for the metallic, the malevolent, and the madness of the Old Ones, this show is for you. Something wicked this way comes, and his name is DJ DeaD!
DJ DjMuekas Preez
DJ Easy Ninetails
You may know him from Cruz Kontrol or from Impact where he is a Resident DJ. You might know him from The Symphonic Experience where he often makes Guest appearances. But if you don’t know him at all, you should! Easy is well named. Smooth, smooth, smoooooth. And packing a playlist that is always perfect for the setting. Sometimes he spins up the 80’s, sometimes Electro or Future House. It’s all about the Space and Time when Easy take the wheel. He isn’t shy about dressing the part either! You can count on some awesome tunes, some top-notch banter, and one hell of a good time!
DJ Edward Thatch Morgan
They say once you Party with a Pirate you’ll never go back! And Edward is proof that they are right! This Pirate DJ has been spinning from ports all across the grid for more than nine years. His horde of musical booty is pure gold! Soundtracks, Traditional / World Music, New Age / Mystical, Steampunk, Symphonic Rock, Humorous, Renaissance, Rock / Pop / Dance, Industrial/EBM, Gothic, Metal , Pirate, Tribal, Viking and more. It’s music from across the Seven Seas! But unlike a lot of pirates out there, Edward loves to share his treasures! So, avast ye scurvy dogs! We be makin’ cancer walk the plank and thar be a place fer you on the crew! Besides, you know you’ve been itching to break out that pirate outfit.
DJ Elizabeth Tinsley
Her High Faireness, Elizabeth Tinsley (AKA DJ Tin-Tinz!) is in Fantasy Faire Radio’s broadcast booth for both Fairelanders’ Masked Balls. The boss loves to spin for Fairelanders, and after a long day at the Faire we could all use a little fun. So, suit up (or gown up, or ya know, whatever your species does to look all fancy-shmancy) and join us for the Fairelanders’ Masked Ball.
DJ Elrik Merlin
A broadcaster and recording engineer/ producer since the 1970s, Elrik Merlin has been a regular presenter and event DJ in Second Life since 2007. He is also part of the team bringing Fantasy Faire Radio to the air. Elrik has been co-presenter since November 2007 of Designing Worlds, the award-winning TV series on design and designers in virtual worlds. In early 2021 he launched a brand new radio station, Virtual Community Radio. Elrik is honoured to be invited back to play at Fantasy Faire 2021. Depending on the occasion, he plays a wide variety of music. No matter the setting or the style, Elrik always brings his love of music and passion for broadcasting to the fore.
DJ Female Winslet
When we say that DJ Female knows music, we mean it! Her school years were spent living and breathing music theory and composition. SL audiences have been rocking to her jam at Club Amarantha and Vipera since 2018, and in 2019 she started making appearances at RFL events including here in the Fairelands and on Relay Radio during Relay Weekend. These days, she can often be found spinning for RFL events at the Bellisseria Fairgrounds where her repertoire ranges from Traditional and World Music, New Age and Mystical tracks, to Rock, Pop and Dance. She’s also proud to say that she has been part of the Relay community in SL many years now. In fact, her inventory is awash with RFL items going back to 2009. The Force is strong with this one!
DJ Fiz Underwood
The one and only DJ Fiz! This cat is too much fun for words, but we’ll throw some out here anyway. His southern drawl is legendary. It’s like a magnolia blossom floating in a sea of good bourbon! His music is wide ranging but Fiz always brings the fun. We’re proud to call him a Fairelander, and delighted to have him back again this year. Fantasy Faire Radio’s Zander Greene says, “I don’t care how busy I am. If Fiz is spinning, I stop and take a break to catch that set. You’re never going to meet a better guy, or a more dedicated Relayer!”
DJ Gem Sunkiller
Everyone who takes up the title of Fairelander makes us proud, makes us stronger and moves us closer to building a World Without Cancer. When the burden of that task feels too great to bear, there is no one who comes in faster to take some of that weight off your shoulders than Gem Sunkiller. Being a Faireland DJ is just the start of what Gem has done for the Faire over the years. A full list of her kindnesses and contributions would beggar the imagination. Suffice to say that Gem is everything a Fairelander and a Relayer is supposed to be. She has led at the Team level and at the Community level. She has spun up more parties than most of us have even attended. And she does it all with a love for us all that is just what you need when you are feeling low. Add to that the fact that her sets are just 100% pure joy and you begin to understand why she is the one we call when Tinies are running amok and in need of a good jailin’!
Ginniji-san – AKA Silverfox Rainbow – is one of our favorite Faireland DJs! Think of a club scene in a super-cool Anime series and you’ll be getting close to Ginnjii’s vibe. You never know what you’re going to hear at one of Ginnjii’s sets. But you can’t count on it being energetic and fun! Just what you need to get the virtual blood pumping and start your day at the Faire off right!
DJ Glitch Axelrad
Oh, lord…here we go! What is there to say about Glitch? More to the point, what is there to say that can be said on a family friendly show like this one? Well, for starters how about this: We are talking about one of the Faireland’s favorite DJs here! Glitch breaks out tracks from Soundtracks to Rock, Pop and Dance, and from Industrial/EBM to Gothic. Him make beats good! Him cray-cray! In his own poetic words, “I am awesome for you and us…. and together we do the dizzle.” (Ok, so he ain’t Shakespeare but you trying spinning with both hands and writing a sonnet at the same time!) His point is well made, nevertheless. When Glitch is in the house, we do indeed do the dizzle. Now if you’ll excuse me, I just need to dash over to the Urban Dictionary and make sure the “dizzle” is allowed under Faireland law…
DJ Hazard Fizzle
The owner and operator of [GHOST BOX] Radio, this cat is legendary. And his sets are the stuff that dreams are made of! A cinematic mix of new Dark Musiks – Industrial, EBM, Synthpop, Cyberpunk, Aggrotech, Witch House, Synthwave, and Dark Ambient. He brings it all and Fairelanders love to let go and get lost in the waves of Hazard’s mad, musical magic! So far, they’ve all found their way back. But anything can happen. Faire warning!
DJ Holocluck “Doc” Henly
Doc is not a club DJ but rather sets a mood and takes the listener on a journey. He’ll use any range of styles and eras, not unlike a time traveler! From Soundtrack, Traditional / World Music, New Age / Mystical, Steampunk, Symphonic Rock, Humorous, Rock / Pop / Dance, Novelty, Swing, Electro Swing to Vintage Jazz with a Fantasy twist. Doc Henly marks April 11th 2010 as the day when he became aware of Relay For Life in SL and reached out to MamaP for his first kiosk. In 2013 he learned about Fantasy Faire and found a home for his eclectic style as a Fairelands DJ. Ever since then, in his own words, “Fairelanders are my family, their cause is my cause, and their lag is my lag.”
DJ Iniry Vaher
A 2013 Avi Choice Nominee, Iniry was inducted into the SL DJ Hall of Fame in 2018. She was a big hit, DJing for Second Life Birthdays 14, 15, 16, and 17. At the console, she can bring the Rock, Disco, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, R&B, Blues, Jazz, Latin, Freestyle, Musicals, and Today’s hits. She’ll rock out to hair bands, then turn around and sing along with Sinatra! Any musical regrets? One! She would have loved to party in Studio 54. Ya know, we bet we’ve got enough parts laying around here to throw together a decent time machine. Pack a bag and let’s do this!
DJ JAdmiral Maelstrom
JAdmiral Maelstrom is the longest running DJ in SL, and DJ of Disco Tuesday Night– the longest running weekly event in SL! His sets are a total blast as he plays an on-air music trivia game, and serves up baaaad jokes. JAdmiral says “To know me is to groan at me (or the jokes, or both).” It’s always Disco Night in the Fairelands whenever he shows up. Which reminds us… He’s already an Admiral, but we’re seriously thinking about designating him as the Disco KNIGHT of the Fairelands!
DJ Kirana Rawley
Last year was Kirana’s first time spinning at the Faire, and we saw that she really knows her way around the DJ console! She has been exploring the grid for 14 years and has been a DJ for much of that time. You can find her at Mystical Forest where she plays for audiences of Elves, Fae, Drow, Fauns and Satyrs, Mer, Centaurs and Dragons. But she also plays for denizens of the Vampire Empire at The Pit. And she has made appearances at the various Burning Man festivals in SL. Kirana has been a Fairelander for a long time! Like us, Kirana has good reasons to Relay. She is looking forward to the chance to once more share her passion for great music and for this noble cause and we’re looking forward to being there to hear it! Welcome back, Kirana!
DJ LilithVon Hexem
It takes nerves of steel, a ton of heart, and a legendary playlist to helm something as epic as the Jailing of Alia Baroque. That’s why our first call is always to Lilith! With her trunks packed to overflowing with Symphonic Rock, Pop and Dance, along with Industrial/EBM tracks, Lainey makes the ideal choice to take us on this uniquely Faireland journey. With Lilith, you also get a Relayer who isn’t backing down when it comes to standing up to cancer. She won’t stop until the cure that could have saved her father’s life is found. She writes, “I miss my Dad every day and wish I could have just one more talk about music or sports, one more hug with him telling me everything is going to be ok but I can’t have that and I am not the only one.” We know just how Lilith feels, and we also know that her dad is proud of her. We are too.
DJ Magda Kamenev
Magda has been DJing in SL since 2008 (omgracious!) and likes wide-ranging sets of music – something from the 1930s and something released just a week ago can make its way into her set. Mixing the familiar and the new, the comfortable and the surprising, is Magda’s raison d’etre as a DJ. Equal parts twee, intense, corny and hedonistic!
DJ Marc Porthos
DJ Matt Carlton
DJ Matt (Mattie) grew up in the Missouri Ozarks. Having lived near Branson and spending a lot of time there seeing shows and also having some distant relatives that performed for Silver Dollar City, shi was raised on country music, blues, bluegrass and classic rock. Shi still has a great passion for these genres, country being her favorite. Music has always gotten hir though some of the worst times in hir life, and now shi loves to share some of these wonderful tunes with folks here on SL as a Tiger striped 9 tailed fox.
DJ Minty Vanilla
We are so pleased to welcome Minty back to our family of Faireland DJs! This self-described “Confirmed Hopeless Romantic” is all about bringing a ton of heart to audiences. Lil Mint’s sets can be heard weekly at Mintspot where you’ll hear everything from Future Garage, Dark Bass, Dubstep, Dub Techno, Chillhop and Vaporwave, to Ambient tracks. For the Faire, Minty will be leaning into Industrial/EBM tracks, a Fairechylde favorite! Having been a long-time visitor of the Fairelands, Mint is excited to be stepping up once more to take the helm! All the more so because Relay is something Mint has good reason to support. Like so many of us, cancer has impacted Lil Mint’s family. What better way could there be to stand up and make a difference than by sharing a little Minty-Magic with all of us?? (Full Disclosure – We self-describe as Hopeless Romantics too. Sounds like a match made in the Fairelands to us!)
DJ Moll Vaneth
DJ Otenth Paderborn
The word “Eclectic” was made for Otenth Paderborn! This long-time Friend of the Faire has been DJing for Fairelanders for years now, and in Second Life since 2007 including with Radio Riel where he produced a monthly show called “The Musical Magpie.” An apt name, indeed! You never know what you’ll hear when Otenth is at the helm! But it is always high quality! And not for nothing, he’s also one of the nicest people you could ever hope to meet. We are always proud to have Otenth at the wheel, especially because he is so committed to the vision of a World Without Cancer!
DJ Pietor Grigorovich
Pietor’s magical sets explore the intersection between world music and the dance floor, with electronic genres ranging from psybient, downtempo, psybass, organic house, sacred bass and others. He has been featured at Burn2, SL Birthday celebrations and a variety of events.
Another of our Faireland DJs who isn’t afraid to take a walk on the wild side, Psycho is back for the third year in a row! Fans of the heavy beat will fall hard for his mix of Industrial/EBM and Gothic tracks. From Club Zero to The Symphonic Experience and the legendary Machine Shop, Psycho has been spinning up the mayhem in SL since 2009. Throw in his RL background as a drummer and bass player and you have a DJ who pushes the energy level to critical mass and beyond. What you might not know until you talk to him for just a few brief moments is that he is also a truly nice guy. This fight against cancer is one he is serious about too. It took his father and two of his best friends. So, if we were cancer then we would be looking for the back way out of here right about now. The last thing you want is an angry Psycho coming after you!
DJ Rahdu Rajesh
Rah has been DJing in Secondlife for over 10 years. She has been mixing for the last 6. She has always been the creative type. Previously she had been predominantly a visual artist. Second Life was an outlet that nourished her musical side. Rah has been exposed to many genres of music. She started out DJing metal and mixing Hardstyle. Since then she has learned to mix Electro house, Dubstep, DnB, Bass house, Afro house, Tech house, Jacking house, Deep house, Melodic techno, Dark techno, Minimal techno and recently she has been learning more synthie genres including Synthpop, EBM and Industrial. Currently Rah identifies as a Techno DJ with a wide range of musical influences.
DJ Rapa Tone
“The value of life can be measured by how many times your soul has been deeply stirred.” That is a quote from the profile of DJ Rapa Tone, and we completely agree! Deeply stirring is exactly what you get at one of Rapa’s sets. With a profound affection for Melodic Progressive tracks and for Uplifting Trance, this professional DJ from Japan can be heard on Osaka Sunrise from Digitally Imported Radio. After making her Fairelands debut last year, we are delighted that she is back! Another of Rapa’s favorite quotes is, “Sometimes a sakura is just a sakura.” Indeed! And sometimes, a Cherry Blossom unfolds to reveal something so deeply stirring that your soul is never quite the same. Great music can make us more human, and that is what Rapa’s sets do precisely. Don’t miss this one! We could all use a little of that special magic right now!
DJ Recki Laville
The Party just keeps getting hotter, as Recki takes the helm of the Fairechylde, Her sets are known for a killer blend of Industrial/EBM and Cyberpunk/Futuristic tunes! She’s been DJing in SL since 2015 and mixing since 2018. So, our shiny new airship fleet is in good hands! Recki writes, “I have a weakness for hard beats, crunch and contrast!”
DJ Rora Vastranad
“OMG FF!!” That pretty much sums up what Rora thinks about the Faire! Is it the amazement of spending time exploring a world of fantasy and dreams? Is it the awe inspiring designs and builds? Is it that there is always something new around every turn? Yes, yes and yes respectively! Rora is proud to be a part of this as creator, performer and One Team supporter. And she would not be happy if we failed to mention…the SHOPPING! And her playlist includes sweet tunes from the 80’s and lots more fun, dance-y stuff. This is just part of the reason why we say, “OMG RORA!!”
DJ Rox Arten
The creative genius behind Secrets of Gaia, one of our Faire Sponsors, and the driving force behind the aptly named Twisted Hunts (Fun! Also MADDENING!), our own beloved Rox Arten is also well versed in the controls of the DJ deck of the Fairechylde. When she takes the wheel the destination might be Soundtracks, Traditional and World Music, New Age and Mystical tracks, Pop, Dance, Gothic or straight up, old-school Rock and Roll. Rox just wants to make sure that you have a great time and walk away (or shuffle, strut, boogie, what-have-ya) feeling a little bit more joyful than when you arrived. She’s also one of the most supportive Fairelanders you could ever hope to meet. We rely on Rox a lot! And she has never let us down. Swing by the Fairechylde when Rox is spinning and tell her we sent ya. There might be some chocolate in it for you!
DJ Ruth Spiritor
Ruth lives the One Team philosophy of Relay For Life. Her team, Cure Chasers, has been part of Fantasy Faire’s One Team Initiative for the last three years and when she says that we’re all in this together, she means it! Cure Chasers are Fairelanders and vice versa. We all march proudly under our own team banners, but flying over them is the Purple flag of RFL and our eyes are fixed on the same destination: A World Without Cancer! At the helm, Ruth loves to spin for Relayers and she can bring it all. Soundtrack, New Age / Mystical, Symphonic Rock, Rock / Pop / Dance, Gothic, and Country. No matter the style or the venue, this is one Relayer who knows how to rock!
DJ Sasha Allardyce
The always delightful Sasha Allardyce takes the helm of the Fairechylde and steers her into the realm of musical magic. Sasha has been a DJ in Second Life for 10+ years now … spinning a WIDE variety of music, mostly blues but also classic rock, soul, and R&B. Sasha believes in making her shows lively, chatty, and fun … and loves when the audience chats in local! She pays close attention to local chat and likes to keep the crowd talking! Come join her – and be Spellbound :>)))
DJ Smurfie Sands
Oh oh oh!!! It’s time! DJ Smurfie is spinning and making herself dizzy. Oh and she’s playing some great blues. What type you may ask? Why, everything you might be in the mood to hear, maybe never heard before. Aww heck! Maybe she’s never heard them either! Back by popular demand! The always dee-lightful, ever dee-licious, often dee-lerious Smurfie returns to steal your heart and play those tunes that get into your head and just won’t go away!! S’ok tho! She rawks! VaDaaaaaa!
DJ Spike Decosta
Hey! It’s Spike! Music has been part of his life for as long as he can remember. Like many – Spike has had close experiences with cancer, which is why the Faire and Relay For Life are close to his heart. Spike is coming to do what he does best, and what we love most! Party and kick cancer’s butt!
DJ Tamlorn Carterhaugh Wood
The Wood Elves are one of the fantastical races the Faire would be lost without. That’s why we are honored to welcome Tamlorn back to kick off our One Team Party series! From his woodland sanctuary where the Old Ways are still kept, he makes the journey each year to the Fairelands with a blend of magic, music and light for which his kind are so well known. Music creates a mood and it can also create stunning vistas in our mind’s eye. Tamlorn takes that to a higher level, as he paints with sound and immerses us in those mystical realms. For his dedication to the Faire and to the vision of a World Without Cancer, we embrace our brother, friend and fellow Fairelander. Tamlorn, Laird of Rosemont Woodlands!
DJ Trader Whiplash-Ballinger
The Co-Founder Relay Rockers, and the man behind the curtain at T1 Radio! Trader is also a Leukemia Survivor, a winner of the Spirit of Relay Award, and the host of Relay Rap which celebrates Relay and Relayers in Second Life. This AviChoice Favorite Radio DJ winner knows classic rock, and when he brings the Relay Rap team to broadcast from the Fairelands each year there are always some great tunes as well. With so many great reasons to Relay, including for the Caregivers who have helped keep him strong, Trader is one of the most passionate Relayers on the grid. Join him as Relay Rap welcomes special guests from the Fairelands!
DJ Vasa Vella
DJ Vasa is a long time Friend of the Faire and his sets are a great excuse to get a little wyld! And let’s face it! Sometimes you need to dance with a Satyr by your side. (For Satyrs it is polite to Flirt. Think of it as a full body handshake with less clothing!) When Satyr’s bring a horn section, they literally bring a horn section! Satyr’s gonna Sate! We could make worse jokes but you get the point….and if you do, don’t worry. We have Faireland medics standing by with band-aids and ointments.
DJ Zander Greene
Fantasy Faire and Fantasy Faire Radio’s founder, Zander is proud of every person who works to bring the Fairelands to life and of all who come to their magical shores. In his First Life, Zander has been an actor, director and producer for theatre, film, animation and radio projects. Also a waiter, a door-to-door encyclopedia salesman, and for a couple of weeks in the mid 80’s he was the Pope. (We’re pretty sure that last one is not true, but our fact-checker team isn’t returning our calls.) Still, there is no job he has ever enjoyed more than spinning great Faire music for the best audiences on the grid. From Fantasy film music to classic rock, Zander loves helping to create your soundtrack to the Fairelands!
