SANDEE: One Final gathering. Sat Dec 20th 2pm. Directions,fund info & more

We are all shocked and in Mourning the death of a close personal friend and dance industry Icon.

Sandra Casanas, known today as SANDY,Sandra Harvey or Freestyle artist SANDEE passed on over the weekend.

One of the sweetest and strongest persons known in the dance music community, Sandee formed part of the original 1983/1984 Lewis Martinee group X-Posed (later known as Expose, along side Lourie Miller and Ale Lorenzo) and had great success and influence in the early 80's club scene and sound of electro syncopated dance beats, melodies and afro Latin drum sounds that would define the Miami Latin dance sound known as Latin Freestyle or Latin pop/Miami Sound. 'Exposed to love' ( which was never re-recorded with the second batch of vocalist) as well as 'Point of No Return' and other numbers would trace out the blue print for the 3 girls and a drum machine groups that would follow in the club and pop world of Music. From the later Expose girls, Cover Girls, Company B to the U.K's Bananarama or Latin America's Pandora. X-Posed (Pantera) would infuse the world with its sound and its underground new wave, punk rock meets inner city street fashions; that in many ways still influence today's younger hipster and alternative crowds.Sandee, being at the forefront. X-pose being FREESTYLE's FIRST EVER TRIO GROUP.

When Expose later changed its members due to pressure from the major record label that picked up the group (with Gioa Bruno, Jeanette Jurado and Anne Curless), Sandee ( Puerto Rican) moved on as a solo artist as did Ale ('I Want To Know'). She continued to work over the years with everyone from Lewis Martinee, Avy Gonzales, Clivilles & Cole and others. Her single 'Your the one (Myheart beats for)' would single handedly define the live brass Miami sound of the late 80's and quickly rise to the billboard charts. An anthem on Miami's Power 96 and then dance music station Hot 105fm, Cali's Power 106, NYC Hot 97 and serve as a dance floor scorcher at clubs like Club1235 (today's Mansion in sobe) or New York's Roseland, Redzone, Hearthrob and 1980's Studio 54.

Her other anthems 'Maybe Tonight' 'Love Desire' and 'Notice Me' would have the same impact on the dance and pop music community of the time and have her sign deals with everyone from Fever Records to Atlantic.

Today SANDEE has been one of few artist to FIRST come back to her Dance music roots (Freestyle), while practicing her ministries, and had a chance to inplant the spirit of artistry into a new generation of dance music purist. DJs, vocal artrist, promoters and then some.

In the HOUSE MUSIC world, she is still a figure in LATIN HOUSE and a figure in a transition period between the 80's Era of Freestyle and Hi NRG and the 90's era of House music. An icon in Dance Music in general and has had her CASA MIX of 'Notice Me' SAMPLED BY ALMOST EVERY DJ IN PRODUCTION OR MIX SETS.

Sandee can be heard in everything from
THE MIGHTY DUB CATS 'MAJIC CARPET RIDE'
to todays
CUBE GUYS 'TE QUIERO' under the Roger Sanchez umbrella.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to her family members and to all our friends, who like us, are in mourning.

Jonpito,

This is just my opinion but, in this day and age of identity theft, you MAY want to delete out the bank account and routing information. Instead, have people either e-mail you and you can give the information out, or perhaps have the monetary collection get snail mailed to the family directly and THEY can handle the financials in their own discretion.

Please put up an official PO Box or link to the trust. I'll throw something into the mail, just let us know the official title of the trust so we can cut the check.

I WOULD like to give something, but am leery about wire transfers. If there is a direct address or P.O. Box we can send to the family that would be appreciated.
