    Default First Gig last night

    I had my first gig last night and it went amazing. Played for probably 400-500 people, playing mostly hip-hop and rap. Mixed in some old school rap for a little bit and everyone loved it. I had everyone dancing and had 6 or 7 different people come up and tell me i was doing badass.

    My only problem is my headphones started cutting in and out half way through, so that made it a little difficult to cue up music. They had another guy come on after i played for about 2 hours, and he slowed the whole night down, after about 30 minutes they asked me to go back on, so i did and started with some up tempo stuff and get everyone back on the dance floor.

    Overall it turned out badass, everyone had a good time and even though i was nervous as hell at the beginning i had a bast, i took a few shots before i started and things worked out fine haha. I just have one picture of the setup i wish i would have got a picture of the crowd but ill throw up the one of the setup that i got later on.

    Thats the Peavey PV215 and the big box behind the table is a CHT 18.2 which is 2 18 inch subs and a 1000 watt amp, so it was plenty loud.

    thanks for the replies guys, Im about 6"2 so it sucked having to hunch over haha. I actually got to meet one of the club dj's from my town and i was telling him i kinda have just been reading online and practicing and learning on my own and he said let him know and he could teach me a few things.

    I also had my Mac but i just hadnt set it up yet, i used Virtual DJ since i was most comftorable with it right now, but im gonna switch to something else here pretty soon.
