well this new years eve for some reason i had no gig set-up . why ? i guessing times are tight and folks are cutting back on the "extras". "so" i thought why not throw my own show and hire me to do the VJing . so i had a meeting with a good friend with a killer restaurant and talked him into using it for the party where-in i would do all the work and we would split the door . all the calls went in for the DJ line up i wanted and the right sound crew to match it , then it was all up to me to promote it . not having had done this before it was a real challenge . i mean i know the science of how to throw a party but in practice is hard going , however it was a good experience . the party was not only a huge mash hit , but everyone got paid , the restaurant made a killing , everyone that went said it was the best party they had been to in years , and i managed to pay myself for the gig when no work was there if i hadn't . now i'm not trying to blow my own horn , i just saying it possible , and also to let it be known to all those promoters out there , you can afford to hire us VJ's to blast your shows and still make your money , i pulled it off and didn't even get a cut of the bar sales . on the flip side , being the face of the party and making it all happen just about did me in , so hats off they've got a tough racket .
