I can't complain too loudly. Eerily reminiscent of what goes on in our industry... WuaKeeN 7: DPR250R 6: Thought about the mixshow route which would probably not bring in any coin if I'm not into doing field work any more. As a result, I get lots of offers to do other gigs, afterparties, etc.... DJing Discussion How much are you getting paid for nightclub gigs? Late crowds are getting more usual. I was recently involved in a misunderstanding where a younger misinformed manager decided to discredit me because of how I handled a shift, dragging big bosses in, my representative, and a shitload of other people that need not be involved, only for her to find out she was in the wrong, she has apologized to my rep but not me and was told "she realizes she's a bonehead" and they've tried to quiet the situation and apparently I've been cleared of any wrong doing.
I didn't care how big the badoonkadoonk was I deleted her number quick time.
AMF 3: The club in the number one spot, XS is not for the faint of heart or those afraid to drop a pretty penny on a night out. Schedules are irregular and long hours are common. Also, what a nightclub earns is not the same as the salary the owner decides to take. I get people all the time asking me to put songs on their ipods for parties and events.
In an attempt to respond to this volatility in growth, bar and nightclub operators have diversified into new concepts such as wine bars, cocktail lounges and brewpubs in order to attract new demographics.
Time is very limited for a highly in demand DJ like myself. Unless your celebrity DJ i would say your pretty much replaceable imo. Security tells me that alot of people already look drunk when they walk in.
I'm booked 9 days a week. However, like numerous new businesses, many don't survive their first year. Now-a-days the DJ of the club is an underpaid jukebox who gets yelled at if you didn't play that song a person requested 30 seconds after they requested it.
Any past business knowledge that you have will be useful.
They got the cash!!! Depending on which text editor you're pasting into, you might have to add the italics to the site name.
