In the movie "Tap" with Gregory Hines one of the old guys does a great version of Sunny Side of the Street. The movie has a soundtrack out but I can't find a track listing for it (yet).

Shana - You hit the nail on the head. Good DJs need to have a relationship with their music. I may let my friends borrow a CD that I think they may enjoy, and they do the same for me. I know them well enough to know that if they truly like the music, they'll buy their own copy and go from there. The...

Look. Go ahead and put me in a "camp" with Mike if you want. I have played probably >90% of those songs at one point in my DJ life - keeping in mind that I also DJ westie events. You can go ahead and say that this gets a "rise" out of Mike and joke that there are just 2 different camps. Jesse can li...

Jeep Jockey Jump ("Yump") - but it's only fun for the big apple if the dj increases the speed steadily throughout the song. That's ALWAYS a good idea, actually...

Quick Question, also being devil's advocate: Didn't GSWLF had Hip Hop 3 years in a row? And in having expose other dance discipline to Lindy, besides Hip Hop, what about Salsa? Argentine Tango? Whip? Just curious. That sounds like a good question for people who are actually involved with the event ...

The sound quality on Basie's Jive at Five cd is not at all good. I have found other imports with the same versions of songs that have been remastered much more successfully. I am not that picky when it comes to sound quality, but these are muffled.

My rule of thumb- Most announcements can be avoided by just steering people to a flyer table or person to get info on a specific event. In the case of my regular venue, I waive all announcements. I just talk to people face-to-face. No announcement is as necessary as one might think, so think twice b...
