Go with the flow.

Sometimes you want the whole track, sometimes not. It entirely depends on audience reaction.

I have 12" versions of several tracks but only play what I feel will work on the night.

Dan, I fully agree with you about members of our profession who tend to misrepresent themselves. An association of which I am a member recently had a complaint from a customer, which was investigated and dealt with immediately. However, saying this, two wrongs do not make a right!

I also agree with your opinion of venues experience with various DJs and I think it is a good thing that they should and can recommend a reliable service for their customers. But this should not be forced upon the customers with a penalty clause should they want their own DJ and music.

Having actually spoken to Trading Standards and made approaches to the relevent Ministry, they conclude that this is almost certainly restrictive practice. They have requested that I give them as many examples as possible so that they can investigate for themselves.

To this end, if anybody has had dealings with venues doing this, please forward details to me via e-mail, especially if it is on the venue's website. No names will be passed on to the offices.

I am persuing this as an individual with the backing of two DJ associations and the MU (who also find live bands/singers suffer in the same way with customers having to pay extra) as we all agree that we do not want any back-lash to members of any association in the industry.

And, more importantly, I'm fulfilling a life-long dream next April when I'm going to Memphis and will finally get to visit Graceland. I can't wait.

That's her dream, too, with a side serving of Nashville and New Orleans. All that great music and "soul food".
