How'd you get into DJing?

We hired a local DJ for our cabaret and we had to tell him what to play and then pay him.After taking to Zig (Richard Phillips), we decided that I could do that.So the group purchased a beginner DJ unit and itís been on since then.

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

Page Grayson:

This is a work in progress for me.I write them all down and I try to fit them in with the flow of the party.

 

 

Line Dance Connection:

What would you say to people who leave a party upset because they didnít hear the one song they wanted to hear?

Page Grayson:

Not sure I would say anything considering they probably left the party sweating and limping because they heard all of their other favorites.I think itís important for all of the line dancers to understand that with so many dances, some dances will not get played that night.Please donít be upset, just keep coming back.

 

 

Line Dance Connection:

What's one thing people would be surprised to know about you?

Page Grayson:

I know that most would be surprised that Iím really a sweet person.I have low tolerance for foolishness, so sometimes my face says ďget away from meĒ, but Iím not mean.Iím really sensitive too, so be nice.
