Another Two DJ Gigs in One Night
Last Friday night, I DJed two gigs. This usually happens once a month. First, I played my regular happy hour gig at the Peacock Room, located in Orlando, Florida.
Recently, I’ve been performing with this sound system.
No, it ain’t mine. It belongs to Phil Longo, the Peacock Room employee who books me.
In the past, I only used the top speaker.
The sub-woofer is a recent addition. Tod, Peacock’s main sound guy, thought of this.
For those that didn’t know, bass should always be on the floor or somewhere near it.
As you can see, happy hour regulars take care of me when I play their requests.
I always use a clear plastic container for a tip jar. A clear container gains more tips than an unclear one. Also, I wouldn’t recommend using glass containers. If they break, you or someone may receive a nasty cut.
After my happy hour gig, the automobile and I cruised the forty-five minute drive to Little Fish – Huge Pond, located in Sanford. Little Fish hosted another Broke-Ass Friday event.
Due to rent and mortgage payments, many folks are broke during the first of the month, inspiring the name “Broke-Ass Friday”.
This time the night involved a charity event. Right along with food being sold, a toy drive happened also.
The foggy night inspired this photo.
When doing these two-gig nights, I think of British DJ Carl Cox.
If I remember correctly, he does something similar. After one gig, he’s sometimes off to another in the same day or night. I think that’s how I remember it.
Anyway, because of my own schedule, I’ll just call myself the Carl Cox of Central Florida.
