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!!!
