Spotlight on Deejays and Host Hall of Fame-” Music keeps us balanced and happy. Life makes us want more”- Lanai Jarrico reporting…

Music holds special meanings to everyone in some way or another. It can be nostalgic and evoke fond memories, makes us sad or gets us excited. Music can be powerful enough to change our moods in different ways.  Deejays and Host Hall of fame is a place in Second Life where fans can show appreciation to DJs and hosts that create the atmosphere at venues across the grid. Not only do they honor DJs and hosts, there is a University where visitors can come learn the trade and appreciate music from a variety of genres spun by these essential club workers in Second Life.

 I caught up with 3D (Dia Dufaux) to learn more about Deejays and Host Hall of Fame and what the facility has to offer.

Interview with 3D (Dia Dufaux)

SLE: Hi Dia, it's a pleasure to meet you. I see that your organization  recently celebrated their 9th Birthday in SL. Congratulations! How did you discover Second Life and what do you do here?

Dia: The Sl Deejay and Hosts Hall of Fame  celebrated our 9th birthday. We are honored to be a part of SL.  We didn't discover SL,  SL discovered us. My partner and myself fell in love with the vibrant mixture of clubs, deejays and music in SL. We are both deejays, former club owners and I owned SL Rock and Roll Museum.  

SLE: I like that. “SL discovered you”.  I think it is great that you offer a facility where visitors can appreciate the hard work Djs and hosts do to create the atmosphere at venues in Second Life. Can you share with our readers what type of establishment DJ and Host HOF is?

Dia: SL DJS and Hosts Hall of Fame is a non. profit  organization that honors some of SL clubs finest dj's and hosts. We have designated criteria that we follow when viewing djs and hosts.  We want to  hear and view what the  SL VIPs who attend SL clubs see and hear.

SLE: I’m a big fan of the music scene in SL and I think it is great what you are doing.  I know it takes a strong team to organize everything and keep things running successfully. Who makes up your HOF board members and team. What are their specific roles? 

Dia: There are two owners; Myself and my SL partner, Chris62 Greybeard, and a co owner our SL daughter and HOF builder Rae Greybeard.

We have an in-house staff which includes our amazing plaque designer Squeeeeeaks who started in 2016.


The late Dj Stevie Ray Vaughn who was our plaque designer from 2014- 2016

Our sound and lighting tech Is  Dj. LASERSS420 Lorefield

Our Induction Presenter roles was previously held by DJ James Eastman from 2016 to 2020; We have had a few guest presenters as well.

Concierge Dj Rocky Sutera who assists our inductees with the induction process. The role was previously held by Dj Peki Carminucci and Isabelle Eastman.

 Our Induction host for the last 5 years has been HOF Host Tyger6

 Plus, Our 21 amazing Board members who donate their time to view our inductees.  We couldn't do what we do without them. They are our backbone!!

 SLE: That is quite a team! You recently opened Jay Jones Honorary Deejay HOF. I like that you have a memorial Hall of Fame, who are some of the DJS and Hosts that are honored there?

Dia: We have the Jay Jones Honorary Deejays Hall and we also have the Honorary Maire Bravits Host Hall. Both are deceased in RL / SL. They loved SL clubs, music and dedicated a lot of their time to inworld clubs and entertainment here in SL. Our Honorary Deejays Hall is for deejays who have worked in SL clubs for 10+ years and more. We have a Memorial Hall and Garden where we honor many deejays and hosts who had past away in SL/RL.

SLE:  It is wonderful that you have a Memorial for those who have passed. It also helps with the healing process for those who were friends and fans.  There’s also a HOF university, what type of classes do you offer and what happens after graduation? Is their Venue job placement?

DIA: Our  SRV HOF University is an advanced learning experience for deejays and hosts with basic skills (experienced) but want to enhance them. We use inducted, experienced and skilled HOF deejays and hosts from the grid to present them. We don't have a job placement center here, My Partner and myself own 2 djs and hosts hiring groups that are free to use and open to all!!

SLE: What a great resource to offer all Djs and Hosts. How can visitors nominate their favorite DJ’s and hosts for the hall of fame?

Dia: Nomination is open to all deejays and Hosts who have worked in SL clubs for over 2 years. They can nominate themselves or others can nominate them. We have an application board available at our landing point, along with a mailbox for posting the applications. We ask that people walk about the hall and view what we do. I think some people want to be here but they have no idea what the Hall of Fame is about.

SLE:They will know now by reading this interview!  How do you announce new inductees to DJs and the Host Hall of Fame?

Dia: Our concierge  DJ. Rocky will  contact them to let them know when they are accepted into the hall of fame. He attains information for their plaque design, and walks them through the induction process. Next step  we let our group and facebook page know and contact our texture designer to prepare hof  invites. I need to state that not all djs and hosts who apply to the hall are accepted. Only those who pass our designated criteria will be inducted. 

SLE: How many inductees are displayed there now and when is your next induction ceremony?

Dia:  We have almost 500 deejay's and hosts who have been inducted into HOF, not all their plaques are on display . Its sad to say but most djs and hosts who we have been honored, never come back  to the hall to view them.  Most received their plaques and we never hear from them again.  Induction  is presented on the last Sunday of each month. Next  Induction is  Sunday, August 27th at 3 pm.

SLE: Do you have a group visitors can join to stay up to date with events that happen?

Dia: Yes, our group is the SL MUSIC MUSEUM GROUP!!  it is open to all but vips can not spam our group. Only HOF business is allowed.


SLE: What other activities do you offer?

Dia: We have a gaming area with games to play. We do concerts and we have music festivals in the spring, summer and xmas along with a winter wonderland for all to enjoy featuring HOF deejays and hosts. Next Music fest is this month.The hall of fame  is always open for weddings, memorial services and events if an inductee wants to use it.

SLE:Thank you for all you do in Second Life to help be a part of keeping the music scene what it is today.  Is there anything else you would like to share with our readers?

Dia: I have shared so much about the hall and I still could say lots more but to keep it short.  I would like to invite everyone to stop by and view some of the plaques representing the best talent in SL clubs. We have a staff board in our first-floor lobby which shows who from our staff is online and will assist you with your questions.  In closing I would like to say thank you and please stop by soon.

9/11 Memorials and Events In Second Life


Today is the 20th anniversary of the horrible terror attacks of 9/11/2001.  It is hard to believe it has been two decades since the world stood still and watched in horror as one plane hit, then the second hit collapsing the world trade center to rubble in of Manhattan, NYC, and then the other assaults on the Pentagon and plane crash in Pennsylvania that was heading to the capital. What chaos and fear it brought us but also courage came out of that horrific attack against us.

I remember that day clearly.  I was doing my 5-year-old daughter’s hair in little pigtails getting her ready for PM kindergarten.  I got a phone call to turn on the news. I stood in horror as smoke was coming from one of the towers and watched live as the second plane hit. I was horrified as the buildings collapsed one after the other into a heap of dust and debris right before my eyes. I had a cousin that worked in tower two but was not there that day. 

 I was glued to the TV  and did not take my child to school for fear of other attacks.. I was in a state of shock just like many Americans and others around the world.  That day is burned in my memory just like many who can account for what they were doing at that moment our country was under attack.  My heart sank for every family who lost their loved ones.

Together we began the healing process and stood by the words “Always remembered, never forgotten “ Year after Year we observed this day in memory of the many who lost their lives and have suffered illnesses as a direct result of the dust. From people just doing their job to first responders, military personal, and everyone who volunteered and donated their time and money to help rebuild. Thank you.

In Second Life, many across the grid are observing the day by visiting memorials and attending events so residents can continue to always remember and never forget. 

Below are some memorials to visit:
