Woohoo! Despite logistical problems that were surmounted with the help of friends (thanks Liz + Ben!), last night's DJing went swimmingly. Plenty of people turned out and it was great to be able to play soooo much new music, with a few classics sprinkled in too.
I'm now on the hunt for a regular venue for BG as I've had so much positive feedback from last night. People have been texting, Facebooking and even old-fashioned speaking to me that they had a great time.
I'm immensely happy that in Derby, on a Wednesday night, it's possible to get a crowd of music lovers out who are open-minded and don't complain when they hear shedloads of unfamiliar tunes.
Along with this great night, it's re-affirmed my faith in the possibilities of the DJ scene in Derby. I can confidently say that, yep, there is an audience out there who are hungry for new music, from every genre going.
