Forum to ‘Rave’ Fridays

F riday nights are going to be a little different at the Forum in Granville, N.Y., starting Oct. 29.

Forum owner Kevin Daigle announced he plans to bring a New York City-style nightclub to Granville to change the nightlife landscape of the entire area.

“It’s going to be different, something this area has never seen,” Daigle said the week before the opening.

The Rave Nightclub will transform the Forum ballroom starting Friday nights at 10 p.m. and keep on going until 4 a.m. with an infusion of lights, sound, dance, games and partying that appeals to the late-night crowd that used to have to go to Albany, Montreal or New York City to find the like.

Daigle said local videographer and web site developer Mike Carter pitched the idea to him and he decided to give it a try.

“Mike’s the driving force behind this,” Daigle said.

New York City club DJ, Mad Creation Sounds’ DJ Raja will mixing it up at the Rave Nightclub just like he has at locations from Cream and Calypso City to Exit and Asylum. DJ Raja has also been featured on Hot 97 FM Reggae Tip along with Bobby Condez and Jabba.

“I can’t wait to bring an awesome mix of Top 40 remix, techno, mash-up and hip hop to the Rave nightclub. It’s going to be unlike anything this area’s ever seen or heard. We’re bringing a whole new nightclub energy to Granville that will allow you to dance away the weekly stress and have a great time with friends just like in the Big Apple,” DJ Raja said.

The crowd the Rave Nightclub is hoping to draw is anyone age 18 and up looking for a good time regardless of dance music tastes.

“We’re looking for Green Mountain students, Castleton students and even 18-year-old high school students,” Daigle said.  Those under 21 can get in for $10 and those “of age” for $7; there’s no cover charge from 2 to 4 a.m. with college ID, he said.

“There’s not a lot of that age group to do around here,” Daigle said.

Wristbands will separate those who are under 21 from everyone else, he said.

In addition to dancing the Rave Nightclub will offer billiards, foosball, darts and touch screen interactive games.
