Some amazing parties and so many memories

Thank You

John


If you attended one of the Vagabond’s events during this year’s Winter Music Conference in late March, you might have noticed that at times the music sounded almost nostalgic, with some of the DJs peppering their sets with classic tracks that in retrospect were rife with sentimental meaning.

There was good reason. Those DJs were in the loop on what the public – and even the staff – didn’t know: This would be the final Conference for the Vagabond.

After six years, and amid recent rampant rumors, the popular Miami nightspot is officially closing its doors, effective today (Thursday, April 24, 2014).

“It’s with a heavy heart that I’m announcing that the time has come to bid farewell to The Vagabond,” says Carmel Ophir, the club’s heart, soul and co-owner, along with Rodney Mayo and British superstar DJ John Digweed. “It’s been a little over six years, and this chapter is coming  to a close. That doesn’t mean that the book is over, but this particular chapter is.” Unlike many other South Florida clubs that simply crashed and burned, the Vagabond’s demise is strictly for personal reason


The physical building located at 30 NE 14th Street in Downtown Miami is sold and will become a new venue with a new name.

“We are selling it, so I will leave the venue for the future operators to describe and disclose," Ophir said. "But it is sold, and there will be new operators with a new venue and a new name."“It’s been an incredible ride,” he says. “The artists and DJs who have played there over time have felt that they were at home there, and it just seemed to matter a little bit more on the soul and substance level, whenever they would play.Co-owner John Digweed, who played The Doors anthem “The End” to close out his final set at the Vagabond during WMC, was so fond of performing there that he recorded the performance and is releasing it as part of his “Live In…” compilation CD series. The three-disc “Live In Miami” set, subtitled “Last Night at the Vagabond,” drops May 26.

For this weeks party we have decided to pipe the music from room 1 into rooms 2 & 3 to take some of the pressure off the main room and make it more comfortable for everyone.

We are down to are last few hundred tickets so don`t leave it to late to get yours.

Thanks

Nice way to round off the year on a really high note.

Really happy with 2013 with 2 x Live in albums and a Versus project with Mr Muir plus some amazing gigs across the globe.
