Q&A

Understanding that people like variety and today's audiences have a wide range of musical tastes. Knowing when the audience has 'found a groove' it would like to glide with for awhile is a plus. Equally important is recognizing when it's time to drop the lights and the tempo for slow and romantic moments.

In my experience a DJ can enhance the energy with his patter as well as the mix. Including amenable members of the audience in the patter and the show is always a plus.

I'm an entertainer as well as DJ. Humor goes well with great music. Patter and dialogue can not only amp-up the energy of the party, it can demonstrate that the DJ is 'plugged in' to his audience, not just playing tunes.

Three ingredients: 1) Travel. 2) The new people I meet. 3) A job well done.

The first party I ever played was 'excruciatingly' distressful. However, 'mobile' DJing provides a DJ the one thing that is missing in Radio -- interaction with real people where I can read the moods and needs of the audience from moment to moment rather than waiting for 1% of the audience to call a request line.

I'm a pro with few equals with as much experience, music, and savvy when it comes to designing for and filling a successful party. As an emcee, there may be a dozen DJs in the Southeast with similar competencies, e.g. I'm a member of the national All-Swing DJ Association which has fewer than three dozen members. It's made up of guy that I admired for years, but they have a challenging set of criteria for membership. I'm honored to be one of them, yet it simply means I am associated with pros who have standards as high as my own.
