I've found myself as the DJ for a run for cancer type charity event in a few weeks time in Toronto. The event is fairly low key and they basically just need me as an ipod to play top 40 stuff and other family friendly music that goes well with working out. Any suggestions on music types/artists? (Don't worry I've got the Top 40 figured out.)
On a more interesting note; this is the first gig I've done that I'll have done for free, and its getting scarily close to the "pay to play" scenario when I factor in gas (although they are likely covering that.) So from that stems my question; when volunteering your time as a DJ, how do you ensure your rights are protected? Where do you guys draw the line between doing someone a favour (I should note my friend's brother is the organizer) and the dreaded "pay to play" situation?
