It's not the music being played but how it's played. I'm a DJ, and not your average DJ either and not some human jukebox pressing buttons. It's important that a DJ brings forth one's self meaning own style, sound and energy to the tables. The energy the crowd provides the DJ goes right back to the crowd. I love music and how it brings people together and have a great time. Seeing my crowd in great positive spirits is what makes me happy.
