Hi all, well i am trying to set up a mobile dj/karaoke service, well i have actually done a few karaoke nights and i have been told my kj skills are coming on fine, ie not afraid of using the mic, having a laugh with people, good introductions etc.
Well what i would realy like is to build on my dj skills, if their any members on here from the north yorkshire area and you could do with a rodie or some help on odd weekends please let me know, i am ok with setting up, using a mixer, i have some decent gear of my own too.
I am about to be retired from work on ill health and i would like to make a career from this, ok so i am 51 but 21 at heart lol, please help me if you can, stevie

Experience from my experience comes from getting stuck in at the deep end so you asking to help out is a great idea! One thing that would be a concern to me is you mention

I am really sorry to hear that

As you know Djing can be quite physical and sometimes mentally stressful.... ok its not going down pit for 23 hours a day but you still need to be of a certain fitness to DJ especially if your setting up gear.

I can cross fade, i can beat mix , i can identify the key of the track and BPM , i seems to be able to read most crowds with regard to music selection , but i would not class myself as a "mix dj " I have never been criticized on my mixing technique and to be honest for the functions i do and the crowds i do cross fading tracks from one to another seems to work for me.
In my opinion it depends on what sector of the market you wish to appeal to , i could not do a funky house club , or a specialist indie club every night , i know what suits me and my style.

it seems you have a knack with people as your kj skills are great so if your doing a karaoke night no one expects you to be Fat boy slim as well.

Music selection for my nights is the key in my own experience rather than other DJ skills.

I hope your health is well and gets better and i genuinely wish you good luck in finding people who you can gig with ...

all the best Rob
