What Music Should The DJ Have Knowledge Of ?

Here's a little story.

I got a telephone enquiry today and the bride to be who was in her early twenties asked me what was my favourite tune from the charts.
Obviously testing my musical knowledge.

Reply "Storm Queen  Look Right Through" Check it out very nice tune!

Then later today I went and got my haircut, not very Rock n Roll and what has that got to do with musical knowledge.

Patience people.

The nice young girl cutting my hair enquired if I was doing much later to which I told her that I was going to see M People.

She looked and asked "Who are they?"

I was initially amazed that she did not know who M People were but then worked out that when M People were starting out she would of been 2 years of age.

But then thought ,when I was 2 The Beatles released "Paperback Writer" and why do I know that ? because it's my job.

So the answer to this post is everything and anything... If your a DJ.

And here is M People, I hope I'm as fit as Heather in this video when I'm her age, oh just realised I am
 ( her age that is! ).

Keep Your Guests Happy @ your Wedding Disco

The guest request system that I have in place has proved very popular with many clients.

When a client confirms a booking with me they are sent a username/password that gives them access to the client area of my website. One section in here is the Guest request system, which gives them  a link and a password that they can send to their guests to enable them to make some music requests

The guests can browse the music library, select requests, and include special notes about the requests that they make. 

The client is notified whenever a guest logs on and makes a request. After navigating to the link the guests will need to log on using the date of the event and the supplied password.

The client is notified each time they make a request but these notifications can be turned off if they wish.

The client can also remove any tracks selected by their guests that they’d would rather not hear!

Further to this on the night I always announce on the microphone that guests are welcome to ask me for any requests they would like to hear, unless the client requests that this not be announced!
