A memorial service for Beam was held on Friday. But those wishing to pay their respects in a rock-and-roll kind of way can do so this evening, Monday, April 21, at Higher Ground in South Burlington.
The nightclub is hosting a celebration of Beam's life
that will feature several performers, including DJs Precious and Llu, rockers Jangover, drag queens Celeste LaRue and Kitty Von Tease and a pair of open-mic sessions. Local DJ Craig Mitchell will handle MC duties.
Rest in peace, Wayne.
The Burlington community was shocked and saddened by the sudden passing of Wayne Beam last week, following complications from diabetes. Beam, 54, was a fixture at local nightclubs dating back to the 1990s, having worked for 135 Pearl, Club Toast, Lift and, more recently, Higher Ground and the Monkey House.
