Whitney Houston Tribute this month!

The world lost a legend on February 11, 2012. Whitney Houston is one of the most legendary women of our time and so, every year since her death, my DJ duo HOUSE OF GOLD DIAMONDS celebrates her with a tribute dance party. The annual tradition has grown to huge proportions in just a few years, and the fifth annual happens Saturday, February 27th. Four of Winnipeg’s most beloved drag queens will be joining us on stage that night too. They are Tyra Boinks, Breyanna Burlesque, Vida Lamour DeCosmo & Satina Loren!

We’ll be playing a high dose of Whitney classics, projecting her music videos on stage, as well as spinning many many many other great divas like Mariah Carey, Madonna, Grace Jones, Missy Elliott, or MIA, to name a few. So come shine with us! Wear something you feel amazing in and bring someone who you love to dance with.

Kids! Let’s dance.

Are you tired of being a small child that can’t go out late at night and dance to Mama Cutsworth’s DJ sets? Do you feel like listening to music other than lullabies or the theme song from Frozen? Good news, kids of Winnipeg, your wait is over! Pack up your parents and come out on [...]

Motown on Mondays!

We just kicked off a brand-new Monday night party here in Winnipeg, and I already love it. MOTOWN ON MONDAYS is a weekly party that was founded in San Francisco in 2009. Since then, it’s expanded to multiple cities across North America. Think of it as a family of like-minded DJs who all dearly love [...]

Milan!

I’m honoured to announce that I’m going to be heading to Italy in a week to teach at the Milan International Theatresports Institute Conference 2015. It’s an international gathering of theatre improvisers and chance for them to nerd-out and collaborate and talk shop. I’ll be teaching a workshop I’ve developed over the last couple years, [...]

Populating Winnipeg with Female DJs

I used to feel pretty lonely, when it came to DJing. There have never been all that many women who took on DJing for any extended period of time around here, or anywhere. There are certainly some excellent women spinning (like DJ Shortee, Mama Miche, DJ Tereza) but it’s still pretty uncommon. Which is why [...]

Stompin’ at the Savoy!

We’re bringing another edition of our Barrelhouse parties — jams where we spin songs from the 1930s, ’40s and ’50s. You’ll hear Jump Blues, Hot Jazz, Swing, nitty gritty Rhythm and Blues. The next one is a tribute to that great Harlem nightspot of yore, The Savoy. Mama Cutsworth and DJ Dryhump present: STOMPIN’ AT [...]

For anyone living in Europe, I’m [...]

European Tour this Fall!

I hit the road in a few days for Germany, France and Norway. If you have any friends in those parts, send them my way! Or if you know of any primo food, cocktail or coffee spots, let me know. And Winnipeg, I’ll be back soon for more dance parties. Thanks to everyone who came [...]
