    Default So today, was the most embarrassing day of my life

    Last night I got an email saying a club wasn't interested in having me DJ. The reason, because I don't have video dj capabilities. Really? I went to the club tonight and the crowd was roughly, well, 8 people. I was insulted that such an amazing new club , two cdj 1000's and a djm 900, two technics m5g's , mbp, incredible sound, and very well designed interior wouldnt let me play, even though they stated "I had the best mix they had had audition" simply because I don't vj....for real? what is this coming to? I could buy a version of VDJ but really? vj'ing is that large?

    Hmm..first I've ever heard of something like this.

    Frankly, that's a separate thing entirely which seems like if a DJ can do it, right on, and if not - then get a dedicated VJ who is as passionate and knowledgeable about it as a DJ is with his mixing and track selection.

    Get a buddy to run some visuals on a laptop and controller?

    Should be the most embarrassing day in the club owner's life..

    A video show is really THAT big of a deal for them? And if so, they shouldn't be cheapskates and hire a regular DJ and one that is responsible for the video stuff.

    'Nah mate, I'm off to watch a VJ down at the Roxy, the things he can do with spinning cubes is OFF THE CHAIN!'

    you jest, but some of the more hardcore VJing fanatics are probably like that.

    Can I just say that if this is the most embarassing thing that has ever happened to you, you're extremely lucky?

    Nah... not to discount your point though. Probably something else afoot!

    Nah... the owner's probably just a d-bag. Unless the owner had a buddy who sweet talked him into the gig...

    Nah... judging by the level of bastardness you've presented here, the owner has no friends

    @BradCee - I do jest, but having never met a hardcore VJ fanatic, I don't know.

    I'm guessing their brand spanking new club has brand spanking new video screens and lights, and they've lost sight of the fact that it's all about the music, baby!

    unfortunately i've had the same problem. most bars around here want a dj that can spin the music video along with it. its a huge bummer. i've even thought about getting modul8 but my time is limited so i'm not entirely sure if i can learn it.
