New Summer 2022 Music

“Move” by DNCE and “Skyline” by Khalid are my two favorite new songs.  I do not know why they have not cracked the charts better than they have.  It is up to me to make them hits and they are in my playlists.  “About Damn Time” by Lizzo is another song that I love and it has hit the charts quite well.

 

I think for the first time in a long time that music is getting better.  Enjoy the summer and play those tunes!!!!

Getting Back to Normal after Covid

Even though Covid is still around, I have been contacted by many of my clients to DJ their events.  They have been for both inside and outside events and it is great to be back doing them on a regular basis.  May 2022 has been one of the busiest months I have ever had for a variety of events.  These include Proms, School events, Parent’s Social events, a communion party and an event at an Over 55 community.  It is refreshing to see people smiling again and being on the dance floor.  There is a lot of good new music that has been released this year so it is fun to mix them with songs from the recent and distant past.

My Favorite Songs of the Last Five Years

The last five years have seen many Rap and Hip-Hop songs.  I must say, they are not my favorites.  Most of them sound the same and for some reason the artists like to use a lot of profanity.  That bothers me for a lot of reasons which I am not going to pontificate on here.  I do play the “Clean versions” of these songs, but thought I would share with you the non Rap/Hip-Hops songs that are my favorites over the last five years. Check out this playlist on my Playlist tab on my website.

Carolina Shag (Beach) Music

As we get close to the warm weather, I am beginning to listen to Carolina Shag Music on XM Radio.  I did a Birthday Party a few years back where the Birthday Girl wanted me to play ”Summertime’s Calling Me” by a group by the name of The Catalinas.  They were one of those Carolina bands that performed in the clubs all along the Carolina Beaches.  The Carolina Shag is a style of dance, and I have to tell you, there are lots of songs done by artists who are not famous nationally, but have quite the following in the Carolinas.  I have over 400 songs in my Carolina Shag Playlist, some of which were Top 40 charted hits.  I have created a playlist with some of my favorite Carolina Shag songs that I have on my Playlist tab on my website.  It makes me want to be a DJ in some of the clubs in Myrtle Beach and Hilton Head.

Yes, I am still DJing in spite of Covid-19

Well, it has been one “hell of a ride” since my gig on March 14, 2020.  I actually did 4 outside weddings from August through October 2020 and they went well, masks and all (well not a lot of masks after the guests had a few cocktails).  But then all of my early 2021 gigs were cancelled until I did 3 outside Elementary School parties in May and June.  They were great.  I am raring and ready to go and do have a number of weddings, trade shows, homecomings and a prom scheduled for the fall.  So, if you are thinking of having a party (I think everyone needs a party after all this nonsense), please contact me.  I may even offer a Pandemic discount.
