Well I’m recovering from a night of spinning in a Buffalo bar last night. It was the Buffalo Bears night “on the road” as their normal bar is in the process of moving to a new location. So the Bears invaded the Century Grill and held their “Rodeo Night” there.
If you’re in Buffalo and looking for a good place to eat, check out the Century Grill, 320 Pearl St., across from the Hyatt downtown.
Since it was “Rodeo Night”, I played quite a selection of country music spiced in with my usual DJ fare, some 70s, a lot of 80s and early 90s and some current music. It’s a good thing I worked at a country radio station for a while there towards the end of my radio career, it made selecting appropriate line dancing music that much easier!
I was able to be “geek proud” last night as I played a lot of my music off my PowerBook using a program called Megaseg. The logo on my PowerBook shined beautifully in the darkened DJ booth, quite a few people complimented me on being a Maccie. A bunch of people came up and told me how much they were enjoying the music. It’s a nice pat on the back to hear that sort of thing and it just solidifies how much I really enjoy getting a crowd going with club music.
I’ve adopted a new club DJ name. I’m now known as “DJ PiperCub”. There’s a bunch of reasons for this… I love the look of the PiperCub logo, in fact I have it on a t-shirt. (The teddy bear looks so cuddly and happy). In the gay bear vocabulary, I’m more cub than bear (if I keep eating like I have been though, I’ll out grow that status!) Plus, I’m going to be a private pilot some day and I’d love to fly a Piper J-3 Cub. My father had a Piper J-5 Cub Cruiser that we used to fly around in. And if that’s not enough, my favorite witch on Charmed is Piper.
