Cafe Bleu became a reality as soon as Piper and Shalyce moved to Los Angeles. There weren't any clubs playing the music they loved. Finding a location, DJ's and a name came effortlessly, but getting people to actually attend, was the difficult part. In the beginning about 50 people a week danced to Brit Pop and Mod hits, but in order for the club to stay alive something had to change. When the club was just a few months old, Piper and Shalyce, weighed down with hundreds of Cafe Bleu flyers, went to see Lush, Sheer and Mojave 3 at The Palace in Hollywood. No one left without a flyer. The next week brought over 250 people. Early on, they started booking live bands each week. Having live bands made the club more than just a place to dance. It became a collective musical family. Over time Cafe Bleu evolved by keeping up with the times and never forgetting the reason they started the club. For the music, the people, the bands, the philosophy and the scene. Keep it alive!
