Well they used to sell it at their band's website, but since that's no longer, you might want to try Waterloo.

Don't forget:

Massachusetts - Maxine Sullivan
Surrey w/ the Fringe on Top - Mary Stalling
Flat Foot Floogie - Cab Calloway
Ain't Nobody but us Chicken - Louis Jordan
Just a Gigalo - Louis Prima

I was actually advised that some certain venues banned Bli Blip because it was so overplayed.

BigCash, it's all about if the Price is Right... I hired bands from Austin, and LA before. The thing is that, they're at a price that a, we can afford, and I can easily breakeven. Not even to say to make money. This year, for instance, I'm working with another out of town artist for the annual Ball,...

Thanks everybody for your input, that really helped. Unfortunately, after a night of people giving me CDs, I have no clue who handed me the M.T. to play. 90% of the time, if they don't pick it up, I just leave them there, cuz it's not my responsibility. And they all know better. That said, I do give...

What happens when you take a request

So, locally, I run a venue where having request is ok. There are some misses, but sometimes it's interesting. Like for instance, I have someone asked to play a NKOTB song they had. I gave it a listen and it's danceable but for better judgement, I said no. The other was Manhattan Transfer, I went ahe...

I heard that, Live. Not voluntary, let's just say. It's just as bad as the Cindy Luper's At Last Album (trust me I didn't get that, I heard snip bits of it). Back to Celine... you think that's bad, you should hear the Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered in Mona Lisa Smile soundtrack... Oy vey. Felt l...

Yet again proves the disadvantage of being a female DJ.

Jesse, those are great guidelines... I often times have been asked to mix in ECS in there. You'd be surprise though, that if you throw out Beyond the Sea, it's good for beginning ECSers, and Lindy people are ok w/ that. I made the mistake of playing something really Bal sound, and that totally turn ...

Yea, totally forgot about Splanky.

Ang, I don't have any specific versions in mind. You just basically want something that's slow-med tempo so newbies can catch on and not trip over themselves. I would say 120-ish is good for avg. tempo.

Angelica,

Seeing that Lindy is different than tap where call and respond works really well with... I'd say songs like Tuxedo Junction, Darktown Stratter's Ball, Stomping at the Savoy. I think they are more appropriate that they have a good rhythm.

My 2 cents.

I saw him few years back at New Orleans Jazz Fest, apparently he go there quite a bit. I was just thrilled to see a legend perform.
