As a female DJ, I’ve hit some obstacles over the years. One, finding equipment I can carry (a few years ago I was finally able to purchase self-powered (active) speakers because they started making them light weight enough for me to lug around). Two, for years I had to convince people I AM the DJ (I would tell people, “I’m the DJ. Where can I set up?” And they would normally reply, “Ok, well you can tell the DJ they can set up over there.”) Now, more recently this is the problem I’m having!!! If you’re a female DJ, don’t do this! The guys on my team keep doing this to me during our DJ set up. They must think I’m the Jolly Green Giant, or that I have “Go Go Gadget Arms”!
This video was taken last night at the Toni & Guy Fashion Show, while we were completing our DJ set up for the runway. I LOVE to DJ the Toni & Guy Fashion Shows! I’ll have another quick tip for you next week with footage from this awesome event. Hope you’re having a great week! Join me here next Tuesday to see what happened to me while I was playing for the runway!!!!! Thanks everyone! DeeJay Shelly
