Great stuff and all true. People ask me "what do you play" and I usually answer " whatever the occasion and crowd calls for" . Too many bands have a set list and don't vary. Once saw a DJ at a wedding I was at blasting Bon Jovi during the salad couse of dinner . No clue.
Goes back to something i've mentioned before from the Jersey Shore Legend "Crazy Hughie", the worst most successful musician I ever knew.
1. Read your crowd
2. Music is the best part time business and the worst full time. Have a backup plan.
Loved that guy.
