That's a good question
I would host but currently have no system(soon to be remedied)
I have found that hosting raves used to be a lot of work and expense, with 30 to 50 people showing up at your house.
But these days it is usually less than 8 so it should be a lot less stress
I am sure the first rave started with less than 8 then grew to 50plus in a few years
Do we have the same demographic to repeat the past? probably not, lots have changed
I will host when I have a little something, a small gathering in my place in NJ
If you fly to NC I can host something bigger
I volunteer charlie to do a summer rave outside as that was fun, maybe July, meatballs and limoncello!

Hal can do March
Deepak can do june
Triode always does something so he gets his pick of the month
then its evan turn again
then somebody else must step up

OK everybody have their month?

Lets get it done
System: Nothing....gave it all up, but building a few things for my kids...vinyl, tubes and Gan Fet!

I'd be up for a "small" gathering 4~5 visitors, more than that and the dogs may get uncomfortable...

Room doesn't really seat more then 3~4 people. Rack is on wheels, so swapping gear isn't too difficult, if people are interested.
Lately I've found my room/system to be very dependent on the recording, sometimes the sound lacks dimension, but with the right recording the sound is beyond the walls...

  We had a blast. We were able to tease each other and no one got offended. Adults in action. Emil you had some good ones as well The food you put out was very nice of you. Great Home as well.

Nowhere near where I live, sorry. But Andy D has a place down there and a system.

Happy New Year, gang!  I come around here not so often, so missed much.  WOW, you have a place in Palm Coast?  I had a house there, but the agent wasn't doing a good job, so I sold it.  Can't join you.... Ha!!!!!

Hope to see you guys soon around here for the next rave!
