3. I was asked to play a mix of music and that's what I did. With that being said, I do take request.
4. It was really my first full event that I've DJed so gimme a break... I'm still learning what works and what doesn't.
5. I'm not an a-hole (at least I try not to be) so if you have a problem with me and/or something that I've done tell me. If I don't know that there is a problem then how can I be expected to fix it? I appreciate constructive comments but I think it's a little silly to come on here and bash me for something without at least addressing it in person first.
This is literally the first complaint that I've heard but I will take this as a learning experience and put towards ensuring I do a better job next time. I'm sorry if in some way I made the event any less than a completely enjoyable experience...
Chris...don't worry about a thing, you did great. The main problem is that field 2 was way too close to field 1. events past, field 1 would always be separated from other fields mainly for that purpose. So, between what chuck was telling you, the field placement, etc. And i know it's hard to please everyone music wise, I DJ on the weekends and it's not the easiest thing. All you have to do is play a little for everyone, and the non-selfish people out there will understand.
I think you did great, thanks for the props to the refs. Always good to hear a good boost now and then. I'm sure you'll have it set in vegas. We'll see you there.
