You're DJ'ing at a private event and you recognise one of the invited guests. They are a well known legend of the music industry!

 

You've not been asked to, but would you play any of their well known tracks from their music repertoire - you just so happen to have in your music library?

 

Personally, I wouldn't.

 

Don't forget, polls are anonymous.

This has happened to me and no I didn't.

He actually asked for a few tracks to be played and they were a mile apart from his type of music but good to dance to.

I suppose he was just out for a good time with his friends and did not want to hear his own voice.

Funny thing was nobody else asked for one of his tracks either so there you go, and yes I did have one of his hits on a Now album.

I am not letting on who it was though :protest:

Well we were asked by the Film crew for an (Ex) famous couple to play a track at the London Marathon this year.

It made a change for the other star to steal the limelite for a change.

But usually I wouldn't unless it was asked for in advance.

No I haven't and wouldn't unless it was on my normal or supplied playlist, certainly not just because others want me too just because the guest is there.

I've had good and bad experiences with 'celebrities'. The first happened quite by chance. A very well known Irish singer was staying in the hotel where I have my residency and happened to be in the restaurant while I was playing one of his songs in the bar next door. I didn't even know he was there, I was just playing a song that I play regularly. Anyway, apparently he was outrageed and started complaining to the staff who ran in and advised me that he was there and not to play any more of his songs. Pompous idiot!

 

On another occasion a member of an Irish boyband was in the bar. I really pushed my luck and played a solo cover version he had released (which didn't do very well), and then followed it up with one of his group's big hits. He had a good laugh about it, posed for photos with nearly everyone in the bar, and was back in again the following night. A true gentleman.

I'm a DJ based in Northern Ireland with nearly 10 years' experience offering a range of services. Including club residencies, karaoke, pub quizzes, specialised wedding service, Master of Ceremonies, Compere, Night at the Races and much more.

No.

 

The star is likely to be there for a relaxing evening without having undue attention paid.

 

It could be embarrassing.

 

It could be seen as sycophantic.

 

bang on..........
