(29th Dec2012/Derry/Fix Ibiza)
You can take the girl out of Derry but you definitely can’t take the Derry out of the girl. Wise words, and ones firmly backed by local woman, Jillian Canney, as she prepares for her DJ debut at city-centre watering hole, Sandinos, this Monday night, New Years Eve, as part of the line up at The Rumble Club, a night dedicated to good old rock n roll.
 
Under her DJ alter ego of Stray Kitten, Canney, who has been a full-time resident in the music mecca of Ibiza since 1997, plans to see in the New Year back in her home town with a soundtrack that can only be described as a blast to the past as we head to the future. 
 
Having twisted some arms earlier in the year to join the event’s DJ line up, alongside the club’s main dudes, DJs, promoters and local musicians Todd Gfeller and Danny McGeady (aka Hot Rod Todd and Beatnik Dan), Canney says she can’t wait to jive her way into the New Year, “Coming back home from Ibiza for Christmas just got even better; I’ve been wanting to play at The Rumble Club for ages so getting the chance to do it for New Years Eve is like an extra wee Christmas Box”.
 
The NYE event is the fifth such gathering organised by Gfeller and McGeady, who claim that The Rumble Club came about through “their desperate search for musical kicks”. Their music policy-  “the choicest slices from the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s: the hottest jump jazz, rarest rockabilly, swinginest surf, deepest soul, good ol’ rock and roll and the dirtiest blues this side of the muddy Mississippi”- is just up the Stray Kitten’s street then.
 
Back in the Balearics, with her PR&Events Agency- FIX IBIZA- heading into its 6th year, Canney is responsible for such events as the Rock n Mola Retro Festival, as well as handling international PR for music brands including Ibiza Rocks, the live music phenomenon that has changed the face of Ibiza and its musical inclination since it’s conception back in 2005.
 
As an aside, Jillian’s grandfather, Patrick Canney, was a prominent figure in Derry’s music scene throughout the showband days, with the Patrick Canney Orchestra and The Derritones amongst his musical credits.
 
But back to the present and here’s to the future- rockin’ and rollin’ into 2013 at:
