    Default F***ing song lists

    So I did the winter dance for my school and of course they gave me a song list for 90% of the event. It was pretty irritating. Now I get another gig for this exchange student dance and guess what? 42 song playlist. Why the fuck do they need me when they can just rent some speakers and use iTunes? jeez.

    I do heaps of house parties, and the way i look at it is that if their paying me for my skill, speakers, lights etc. They can tell me whatever they want played.
    Posted this a while ago, but i charged this girl my normal price for a completely Indian party playing Bollywood stuff etc.

    If you don't want to do it though, decline or just pass on the gig. but it all helps you put your name forward and get more gigs.

    Use it as a jumping point and see how far you can take it. Find some remixes. 42 songs isn't gonna last you very long anyway.

    I mean Im charging 100 an hour for 3 hours so the money isnt bad at all, but its just irritating lol. I feel like the point of a DJ is for his/her track selection AND mixing skills, just just mixing.

    Well don't complain if you feel that your missing a crucial part in your work that you're still getting paid for(;

    I wish I got payed 100$ an hour to play some choons. I could understand the concern if you weren't getting payed, but frankly I don't understand otherwise. I'd play tunes at a funeral if I was getting that kind of cash.
