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.    

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.
