Fridays gig was nice. Played at Westbourne church hall for a 15th party. We had smoke lazors, the lot. Really nice family and guests. Apparently the mother said to her Daughter, You look for the DJ so she did and she said that said she thought my website was much better than the others. Excellent! Now I know my target audience....Just kidding. It's nice when all your hard work get's noticed.
Saturdays gig was at Arundel town hall and I thought it would be great, but sometime in the last ten years the Environmental health buggers have come along and put a noise limiter in. Being who they are, They set it to about 3 decibels so it was down to "mid level Woolworths home stereo" level for the whole night again. Such a shame. Nice couple. After the first dance people started drifting away into other rooms as the show had no impact at all. Sometimes this job is so soul destroying. You do everything you can on your mixing desk to try and make it sound punchy but the box on the wall keeps flashing red lights at you and you have to turn it down again lest you lose all power to the stage. I know I moan about these devices on a regular basis but that's because they're popping up in more and more venues. I only mention this one in particular, as it's a particularly severely adjusted one.
Oh well, Can't end on a negative note now can I? Drove over a thousand miles this week and crossed four countries to pick up my lovely partner Becky from Germany, or Bundesrepublik Deutschland as the locals know it! Oh and all we lost from the Peugeot van was a hubcap. Not a bad test for a new second hand van!
Have a great week. See you next time.
