2007 West Coast Labor Day Weekend Article
Putting the ‘U’ back into Labor Day; Trio Style....Written by Mkhana
Things have changed. We used to spend Labour Days watching Moi deliver speeches at Nyayo Stadium, fighting with the cousins for that last chapo and learning how to clothes since the fete last year. As the night wore on, we enjoyed the music from the higher decks as spun by DJ Dennis of Studio D Entertainment. Soul blended in with the reggae for maximum mu-enjoyos. The owner of the house served food with aplomb, managing to give everyone his undivided attention. It felt more like a weekend at your best friend’s place with about eighty of your closest friends. What was meant to be a ‘mpaka che’ event was brought to a considerably early stop at five am by a scuffle that involved two young men. The DJ was willing, the crowd had began to heng, and the sun was almost upon us, reminding us of those days when we used to heng till che. Unfortunately, because this best friend of ours cared for our ultimate well-being, the party was brought to a standstill.
Never to falter, wananchi showed up in droves for the White Party. Many loudly doubting if they were at the right port because, compared to last years cruise party, this boat that waited for us looked like the Titanic. Looking resplendent in white, Kenyans (and non-Kenyans alike) boarded the boat-ship. The captain graciously individually welcomed us aboard and we soon set sail. I do not believe anyone on board noticed as we left because the music had shika’d. DJ Dennis seemed intent on concluding the unfinished business from the previous nights bash. DJ Slim of Oakland continued in the same vein, hyping up the crowd. The guest DJs from In Da Groove Entertainment kept people on the floor as well. White-clad Kenyans barely noticed the sway of the vessel as it rocked back and forth on the waters surrounding Long Beach pier. The dance moves that had been stored since circa 1993 and beyond were being unleashed on the dance floor. The bar was open and for those trying to have a little something to munch on, the crew had provided bread and cheese. (Aii, no nyam-chom?). All in all, the cruise was quite enjoyable. Nothing like enjoying your pints on a pseudo-Titanic yacht with your friends, creating those memories that will escort you to work when you are stuck on the freeway come Monday morning. Upon docking, people were busy making plans for next year’s event. Some of us were busy contemplating what to wear to Sunday nights Soul Nite at Club Lipps in Anaheim, featuring The DJ Peter of Seattle as a special guest.
Who said that Disneyland was the happiest place on earth? This Labor Day Sunday weekend, we put the ‘u’ back into Labor Day as we sunk back into some super Soul music opposite the famed theme park. The old-heads were in the house (no offense!) and so were the young-heads (The kids who look like they just landed from JKIA). Club Lipps was buzzing so much that Sunday night, that you would think we were somewhere in the Nairobi of 1995. DJ Stevo, of Lipps Entertainment, had set out to make this kwaheri night-a collaboration between the Trio and himself- a true goodbye heng. Noting that there had been an influx of out-of-staters, the deejaying was quite diverse. Mixing in some current Kenyan local hits with some roots, dancehall and the obligatory reggaeton (after all, this is Spanish California), The DJ Peter revved up this crowd that had only, less than twenty four hours earlier, been at sea. DJs Dennis and Slim took a turn at the turntables, keeping in sync with the crowd.
As the night drew to a close, the after-party was waiting. At some building housing the smallest, most stiflingly hot rooms I have ever been in, the deejays continued to make people move. Kenyans had come out to hanye this weekend and nothing was going to stand in their way. One fan worked as the main AC unit for the main tiny room and its even tinier adjacent three sister-rooms. Despite the heat, despite the late hour, the floor filled up quickly as wananchi found their way there. If you asked me what city we were in, it would be a difficult answer for me to come up with. I can tell you it was in California and when we poured out of the doors at seven in the morning, there were some trees outside.
We, as Kenyans, labored long and hard at this three day event. Thank God Monday was a holiday, because we needed that extra day to recover, fly back home, drop back down to reality and just basically have emotional closure that the Trio hengs had actually ended. The Trio surely helped us put that ‘u’ back into this Labor Day.
This weekend showed that Labour Day celebrations by The Trio seem set to become the next big thing after Rugby San Diego
