I've never had any interest in DJ'ing, I'm a player.

Yes, it could be needed at certain functions, but I don't book those functions.

I also think being a good DJ is a skill...I have seen only a few very good ones, and all kinds of very bad ones.

I'll stick to playing my keyboard.



I'm a player too and pretty good I think. In a perfect world where I could pick and choose my gigs I wouldn't DJ either. I find it boring. However when they request the Cha Cha Slide or Good Girl what would you do, start searching for the right Style and sing it ?
Its the business nowadays and there are very few real players working anymore. Its all MP3 backrounds with some live (usually mot so good singing ) over it. Most parties people just want a DJ to dance to. Even the NH are getting DJ's.
I didn't make the rules, I'm just trying to play the game.
