This past week a lifelong resident of the Coachella Valley who was a respected DJ and member in the music community unexectantly passed away.  Although I never had the opportunity to meet Chris, I have many mutual friends who were touched by him and are in pain.

This post is dedicated to Chris (DJ ChrisL) Lancaster.

Please read the information below regarding his tribute at Reunion this Thursday evening and also where to donate money to his family online.

Information Regarding the Tribute:

This Thursday night DJ Day is hosting a fundraiser/memorial celebration for our good friend Christian Lancaster inside the Amigo Room of the Ace Hotel in Palm Springs.

There will be a silent auction, so if any businesses out there would like to make any donations you can get in contact with DJ Day or Jay Bednar via Facebook (search for names).

This night will also be featuring many other local DJ’s so come through and enjoy some great music and good times in celebration of a great man’s life. Also asking for a minimum $5.00 cash donation, but anything helps. There are some collection boxes out in the west end of the valley, so be on the look out for those.  Also, more events are under construction where donations can be made for this cause.

Online Donations to the Family can be sent via PayPal to:
