It lasted longer than I thought it was going to be, but being pretty close to the place I began DJing, Rumors Hotel and Boutique where I started, well it was pretty neat for me. I have been been a resident DJ for a few places, but then I actually just started this DJing thang and it is soooo different from radio, way different. Anyways, life seems to be going really fast for me lol, but that’s a good thing. I want to be in a situation where I’m playing for more upscale clients and bigger places. I want the bigger clubs lol. I do think I can handle it, just give me the chance. I can play jazz, actually I Have a style that I call Liquid…. It’s a mix of jazz and eclectic music from around the world. I play it all the time on my show, Liquid Rain Drops. I’m going to miss Firkin On Paradise but I want more freedom of the way I play… I didn’t get that there. Sadly enough, they let me promote to my listeners what I play and then when it was time to play, they told me no, play rock instead of what was told lol. The worst part was that I did newsletters promoting what I was playing at Firkin On Paradise! Here is that newsletter:
So as you can see, Latin Night was on Saturday but the problem was even after it was already printed and they new this, Tony, the owner approved it. I printed over several hundred copies out and well, I was told to play rock! It was really was hurtful but it was their money and well, when we played rock, most of my little following that I had, left, expecting Latin.. But it is their money, right? So what was I supposed to do? Worst part is, after that they came at me and said they were not happy lol! Ughhhh! The world of DJing, that’s business though. Anyway, I did enjoy Finkin on Paradise but I do want a better place and bigger!!!

The very first day I met Juan Muniz was a week after I became the resident DJ for the Arts Factory Bar & Bistro. I t was also my first Friday DJing event as well. Juan Muniz introduced me to not just himself but his character Felipe. One thing about Juan Muniz, is he is an artists who is focused. Which I have met countless of them) that had or do have the talent, but no motivation, no path, no focused point. But Juan had, and still has the same path that he’s been on. Focused point on his art work, and character Felipe. Funny we kept bumping into each other, throughout the years. First Fridays I’d see him at his booth. Doing his Felipe book. While myself DJing First Friday on other gigs.
Once in a while you wonder and think and ask, “Am I really making progress?” Well Juan Muniz did something unusual for artists and had a great grand opening of Felipe at the Z Boutique at Zappos. It was incredible seeing what had happened for him. The coolest part, I have to say was DJing for him. Juan Muniz is focused on his path. I’m proud to have known him before all the Felipe crazed. LOL. We will see each other once more! Until then. See More at www.MrBlackTie.com
