Sorry folks i haven’t been active in a while as have been learning graphic design and photography… I’ve kinda been thinking, with the music that i listen to, that I’m too old for the club scene and that i should stick with mobile work, and use the graphics and photography skills that I’ve learned as part of a part time mobile dj business…
Another thing i was going to ask, would i be able to play the odd song like this at mobile events…June 17, 2017 at 1:03 pm #2574031
My personal experience you can play just about anything at mobile events, provided it “fits”. This is clearly a slow dancing song, so you’d have to pack it properly. I am not sure if I’d go through the trouble for this particular song, but then I wouldn’t for 99% of slow dancing songs as slow dancing seems to have “died” altogether here, where is was a once-an-hour thing back in the day.
But I have played Hooked On Classics: Waltzes for example with great success, but only because it just fit the night perfectly. On another night it might have just gotten me a lot of funny looks, head-shaking, shoulder-shrugging and people heading for the bar.
So, personally I’d keep this one in my listen to at home pile (well not me, as I am not particularly fond of this music movie stuff, so you in this case LOL) as it most likely will never become a mainstay track in your collection/sets.
Just my three cents as usual.July 24, 2017 at 9:05 am #2593781
I play a few “oldies” on occasion, at wedding receptions earlier in the program when grandmas and grandpas are still around… or for a 50th, 60th birthday, or an older couple’s anniversary… I’m not familiar with this particular song, but it could work with the right “folks”… best of luck to ya!
I’m not a graphic artist, but I also enjoy photography as a hobby…. I’ll have to look in the non-DJ section of the forum to see if there is a photography thread… Take lots of gig photos!
