Drunk DJ Guidebook

While talking to Stacy Stylez I learned about a DJ loosing his mojo. Folks this is a textbook episode of what NOT to do when you are booked to entertain people.

Quick business 101, when a bar/club manager books a DJ they are investing in their venue and expect returns. In my humble opinion, the DJ is to blame if the bar is not ringing drink orders. That's assuming there are two petite curvaceous females behind the bar pouring drinks like it's a grab bag sale at Louis Vuitton

Anyway, so word round camp fire is this DJ [Dood] completely flipped out on the job. What I gathered from Stacy is that this Dood got shit faced, then stopped the music and picked up the mic. Pause, before Dood I used to DJ this shift at the same venue. I would have paid to be there! Continue, so with mic in hand Dood begins to shout profanity at the crowd and staff. Talking bout the crappy sound system and DJ equipment.

I mean I've worked on some less than slick equipment before but you make do. I also know when you stop the music, all eyes are on the DJ. I want you to imagine rolling up to someplace, you get a drink at the bar, do a tour round to check out the inventory and the DJ straight-out cuts the music and bugs out on the microphone. Classic, absolutely classic.

To add to this charade, I heard his drunk girlfriend was trying to sing happy birthday to one of her pledge sisters being held up at the bar.

Word to the wise, DJ's handle your liquor or you could end up embarrassing yourself like Dood.
