Shake A Tail Saturday!

Saturday nights are all about going out and having a killer time, and though Toronto has and endless supply of clubs, restaurants and parties to check out, we have the best Saturday night dance party in the city! Guaranteed good times every week! Shake A Tail has been an ongoing event in Toronto for the last six years; it originally started at The Boat for six months before moving the Stones Place. For two and a half years Shake A Tail was a weekly event there, after some discussion the event moved once again to Clintons where it settled in for another 2 years. It was time yet again for Shake A Tail to move its dance party somewhere else, and naturally that led to Sneaky Dee’s (a little known fact is Shake A Tail actually did one night at Sneaky Dee’s back between Stones and Clintons and the guys knew they would eventually want a weekly night here!) We
sat down with co-founders Aaron and Terrance to find out more about this awesome event.

What are some favourite songs of Shake A Tail?

Terrence: Motown hits are huge like Shout, Cecilia, Fill Me Up Buttercup, Twist and Shout, Lola, and Sweet City Woman are definitely some crowd favourites.

What are some popular Shake A Tail dance moves? Speaker dancing is probably the biggest one; by the end of the night we have quasi Go-Go dancers up there partying! Also we have been known to have an awesome conga lines at times. A lot of hands in the air, like they just don’t care!

If you could have one famous person come to Shake A Tail to party who would it be?
Aaron: Tina Turner, for obvious reasons

Terrance: James Brown, just for the cape.

What is your favourite Sneaky Dee’s food?
Aaron: right now the El Matador steak, it gives you the energy you need to party all night and you can drink a lot after.
Terrance: the wings too, Sneaky Dee’s has awesome chicken wings.

What is your favourite Sneaky Dee’s drink while partying?
Aaron: a double water vodka in a pint glass, you can get drunk and the water helps with the hangover the next day, and Pabst Blue Ribbon too of course.

These guys have put a lot of time and passion into making Shake A Tail such an amazing event. When we started talking about what their favourite part of running a weekly event here at Sneaky Dee’s it was all about the reaction from the crowd. “Putting on a song and having the crowd loose their minds is the best thing to see,” Terrance explained. These guys created a night with a music genre that they liked and turned it into one of the best dance parties of the week, and found a home for it here at Sneaky Dee’s. If you haven’t been to a Shake A Tail yet, get over here soon and dance up a sweat! As Aaron and Terrance summed it up, “it’s a great fucking time, no b.s., no attitude, just a damn good time and the best dance party.” We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.

Moneen at MFOY’s 1 year anniversary party


This past Tuesday #MFOY celebrated their 1 year anniversary by completely outdoing themselves and putting together a night to remember (we use “remember” loosely). Chris Conley of Saves the Day did an awesome all-request acoustic set, & Crystalyne was unbelieveable! Highlight of the night definitely came from Moneen who threw down a surprise full-band set and reminded us that we still know every word to every song. Check out the video of Passing of America (Disclaimer: if you weren’t there to witness this first hand, this video just might make you sad). Thanks for everyone who came out to support MFOY!
