Thanks for stopping by my website.
I'll use this space to share insights on music, to discuss issues arising in the DJ business, and to give you the chance to share your thoughts.
Just a short post to get us started...
(1) I've just finished re-designing my website. The musical features have been removed (so there are no more karaoke bloopers to listen to. If visitors would like to have them back, I'll re-create "Karaoke Central". My new site features a page of information for prospective DJ clients, specifically a list of questions I suggest one asks his/her DJ before booking. This should be a useful resource for my site's visitors, and I'm looking forward to feedback.
(2) Last week I was given the Huntsville Forester's 2011 Reader's Choice Award for being Huntsville, Ontario's Favourite DJ. Thanks Huntsville, the recognition was very gratifying.
(3) Regarding music, I'm getting a fair bit of play from Adele's new CD (21). I'm also a fan of Snoop Dogg's new song, Sweat, though his video (with all the scantily clad 20-somethings) makes me laugh; how old is he, anyway? Lesser known bands and solo performers, such as The Weepies, Matt Nathanson, BT, Jace Everett, have been making request lists, probably because they've been featured on iTunes.
(4) DJ insiders may be interested in the series of iTunes podcasts published by the Canadian Professional Disk Jockeys' Association. The series is called The Meeting, and it discusses current issues in the Canadian DJ industry. Downloads are free.
