Do you think size matters?

Hi again everybody. I have an idea which I’ve bored others with from time to time over the years but never really voiced in the broad spread that this blog no doubt achieves!

Ok actually I’ve no idea how many folks read my humble thoughts other than a few definites but anyway, what do you think of this…

I nearly always do gigs which start at around 7:30 pm and end at around midnight.

That’s a long time isn’t it? do you think the crowd dance attentively for all that time? Mostly no. I mean there’s usually upwards of two or three at least on the floor for most of the night but the main rush comes at around 9:30pm to 10:00pm and then again in the last 45 minutes. This isn’t because I’m a bad DJ. Read the reviews yourself.

Just occasionally or at Christmas functions I come on late and play for 2 to 3 hours. This has the effect of concentrating everyones attention and the shows can’t help but be more snappy and a little bit more exciting. In fact I’ve had some of my wildest gigs and best crowd reaction in this shorter format. This, I’m guessing is why most concerts are around this length. Just immagine if I came on at 9 or 10pm and everybody just went for it big time on the floor…..This is why I charge a set fee now and not so much an hourly rate, as I believe after many years of exprience that it’s quality, not quantity that counts and let’s not forget the oldest rule of entertainment: Always leave ’em wanting more…Not for nothing was that saying a cliche long long ago.

If your another DJ reading this or another customer or a friend, I’d really appreaciate your view on this. I’m genuinly interested to know what everyone else thinks.

Not a lot to say other than that rather important point, except that spaces are filling up for the summer now so please don’t miss out on the wonder that is the Cloud And Sun funky-assed disco in 2011!

Take care and see you soon..

Mike.
