    Default I played my first gig.

    So guys if any of you remember my previous posts I played my first gig (my girlfriends 18th) on the 23rd of this month. I played alot of top 40's stuff and I had a fair few people dancing!!! it was great, I had a couple of stuff ups though which i gotta say I expected but nobody really noticed (except for 2 which i pressed pause on the wrong deck :eek but anyways i was expecting to take a couple of 45 minute breaks cause the party was from 5:00pm till 11:00pm I never got off the decks because I was having such a blast! During the night I got two people asking me to do their 18th's and the next morning the resort that i played at asked me for a business card so they could suggest me as a dj for other venues happening there. I didn't have a business card cause i didnt think I'd need one but i gave her my contact information. I've gotta say the feeling of watching people dance and having hot chicks coming up to me all night saying I'm doing so great was a brilliant feeling. afterwards I had one of the girls waiting around for me while I packed up and she said I should stay in her room for the night (she's my girlfriend but it still counts right). So to sum it all up I had the best night i've had in a long long time. Thankyou DJTT

    reading your thread tags, lol.
    In a few months your girl will begin to resent you always playing out and not paying attention to her. By the time you are in front 10k+ rocking out with a major coke habit you'll peer wistfully back to the good ole days at DJTT. all the ppl here will be like: Who or what is a wongaling? /buzz kill

    good story and funny name.

    I think that's his weird way of saying Congrats. I'll just come out and say it, Congrats man.

    Hopefully you can play at awesome 18th parties like this one.

    Which resort was it? I'm pretty disappointed with Cairns honestly. Seems like there's not too many opportunities here to DJ or get a gig cos every bloody club has a shitty nightlife system or the "DJ" is just a dude who selects songs off it.

    And there's no trance, just a little bit of psytrance here and there.
