This is the BIGGEST misconception.Thereís no such thing as a line dance DJ, there are only a few "line dance songs" everything else is Music people CHOOSE to line up on. I play all types of music from Latin to Gospel and anything in between.

Line Dance Connection:

How do you manage the multiple requests that come at you during a party?

DJ Wash:

Years ago (15-17) I got tired of people saying what I didnít play or I was only doing a certain thing, so I implemented the ďRequest BoardĒ. This way attendees, not me, could write down their requests so all could see I was giving the party what they asked forÖ..many have adopted it since.

Grow up. Itís never personalÖÖ.sometimes time just runs out.
