So last night I DJ’d for the first time in a long while in the fine city of Buffalo, N.Y. Still recovering from their early blizzard the day before, many parts of the city were still without power and there were downed trees everywhere. And I mean *everywhere*.
Despite this, there was power in the downtown area, so we met up with our friends Steve and Tim and Tony and Bob and went to dinner at a little place called Fat Bob’s. The food was pretty good and the company was excellent. It had been way too long since we’d seen our friends in Buffalo, so we had a lot of catching up to do. Afterwards we went to bear night at Buddies where I played music for a small crowd. A really small crowd. Like 50 people tops. Nevertheless, I had a good percentage of those in attendance on the dance floor. Our friend Steve even tipped me for a request: “You Spin Me ‘Round” by Dead or Alive. (Note to self: while the tip was much appreciated, I need to buy Steve a drink or two). I played all my music from my PowerBook, Hercules USB DJ console and the program Traktor and it performed flawlessly. I was quite pleased with my performance last night, if I do say so myself, and the bar owner asked me to come back out there again.
Now Earl and I are installed back at home and ready to take on the work week. And I’m ready for my next DJ gig.
