Hi all. Christmas is always looked forward to at Cloud and Sun towers. I always manage to get the crowd going but at this time of year they really only have a 2 to 3 hour time frame to do it. This saves the “milling around and talking factor” nearly always experienced at weddings etc. as they have already done all that with the office celebration meal. By the time they get to you it’s full on party mode so you’d better be ready with the biggest of tunes or they won’t take kindly to the show. I must admit the last gig I did, I for the first time came to the conclusion that I’d had the sound system up too loud for the venue and my ears afterwards were like I’d been underwater. (Reminds me of going to the Honey Club). A rare event for me. I’ll be more conscious of it next time. Always difficult to guage well when your standing behind the speakers.
It can get suprisingly repetitive (musically) even with different age groups but before you know it, it’s all over and your sticking your feet up until new years eve week.
Not so for my mate Ian. I won’t mention his website here as he gets enough publicity but he’s working practically every night in December. Oh to have a ranking as high as his! (not for want of trying) I bet he’s feeling wasted right now but the equipment he’s going to buy in January!
Which brings me to the economy. I reckon entertainers must be some of the biggest, if not some of the only major spenders in the post Christmas time of year. Yep. When so many folks are looking at their credit card bills and contemplating suicide, we are out there spending like fools (investing in the coming year). I don’t think I’ll be doing that this time though. Firstly, I’ve invested lots this year already and am waiting for a crucial move in the technology of digital deejaying with my particular brand of software. Secondly, I like most of you am suffering from Gordon spending more of our money than the world will earn in the next ten years. I’ve been a lot luckier than most DJ’s in the Bognor area, most of whom I hear have had the worst season ever. But I’m not in a position to gloat. I’ll be doing all I can to get through the next few months like the rest of you so don’t go to the “top of the page guys.” Come to me! I need your business, I’m nicer and I’m better value for money anyway!
Well i’d like to if (I haven’t already), wish you a very merry Christmas and a “well” prosporous 2010.
Hope you don’t encounter too many films and things on TV you’ve seen endless times before over the said period and Hopefully I’ll see you next year for your party.
All the best,
PS. Thankyou for all the support from my friends this week. You know who you are. Very touching.
