When her brother dramatically fell ill hours before a wedding he was booked to DJ at, Rachel Lynch decided that the show had to go on: Despite zero DJing experience, she stepped in and performed the gig. Now, 15 years on, she’s one of the best-known and most-loved event DJs in the USA.
In this fun episode of Tales From The Dancefloor, Rachel talks to us about how it felt stepping up at that first gig, how she got established, how she prepared for DJing a warm-up set for George Clinton, her love of cars and car shows… and how getting a gig at the local gym was one of the best career moves she ever made.
She also shares the ups and downs of being a female in the DJ world, and explains how she got into online educating – something that has helped her to gain acceptance and gratitude across the event DJ community from that traumatic start all those years ago!
