I need a whole different cure for my Mondays these days. I’m now on my second week of holding down the ultra coveted Sunday and Monday, 7pm - 3:30am DJ slots, and let me tell ya: It’s brutal. If I had my druthers I’d be headed to bed early on Sunday after a weekend of partying, not staying up ’till 3:30 am DJing pop music*… but I’m not here to look a gift residency in the mouth. No, this crazy gig of DJing for vacationing tourists on off nights actually has opened me up to wells of new music, which has been really fun!
* My Facebook status after last Monday’s set: “Jay Austin Gregory officially sold out as a DJ… errr, changed his style so that the 40 tourists would remain on the dance floor. Black Eyed Peas? Sure! Shakira? You got it! Kings Of Leon? Coming right up! Daddy Yankee? But of course!”
Of course a good chunk of this music that I’m “discovering” is what they play in heavy rotation on top 40 radio station, and while these songs never fail to get the crowd hyped I won’t subject you to them any more than you already are. I want you guys to check out some of the other stuff I’ve been throwing down though!
