Dude, South Florida probably has more Salsa Clubs than anywhere. I've been to a couple of those clubs and a band playing or a DJ playing it all sounds the same to me. There seems to be no variation to the music. But this is just me and I really dislike Salsa.

Very sad. I had a chance to hear him speak at the last Harlem Jazz and Dance Fest. He had a lot to say about tap and his involvement with it.

Thanks for the feedback Brenda. This was Kevin's first gig for Lindy Hoppers. Thus, it would be hard to believe that all his selections would be a hit. However, there were quite a few good numbers. I would rather him sing some Blues instead of balads. But once again, it might be his impression that ...

It's a good list , but I'd throw the Frankie compilation there. And it seems like a crime that you don't have a single CD for Duke, Ella and Louis Armstrong.

Organizers are too afraid to say no to any DJ that knocks on their door. Kalman That's not my experience. I've been turned down when I requested to DJ at events/exchanges that I did not know any of the organizers. I have also denied a few people when they requested to DJ at SoFlex. I usually schedu...

Brenda, Kevin will play with an amazingly talented rhythm session and a guitar player. They are his favorite musicians. If you can make it to SoFlex I can assure you will have a heck of a time. We will also have two other bands. On Saturday night we will feature Tom Willis, an awesome singer whose v...

At SoFlex I give each DJ a 60 minute set. I think a good DJ can set a mood over 60 minutes. I will also schedule each DJ to play at least 2 sets and possibly 3 or 4.

French Swing Djs Help

This is one is for the French Swing DJs out there. I will be in Europe for one month starting with the London Exchange in March 10-12. After that I was thinking to go to France to dance doing some Djing and get to know the scene there. Do you guys know of any event from March 13th to April 13th. Serg
