Where Are We Now?

First things first, an apology.

When starting this blog, the idea was to try and post not every day but certainly two or three times a week which I haven't been doing. Just been the case of being too busy with other stuff.

Last night, I started my new night, which we are calling 'Saturday Sessions'. The only reason why I called it that was purely because it was the first thing that came to mind!!! The thinking is to try and cater for the wide spectrum of people that we have, drinking and socialising at Rokanrolla and so to try and mix it up every week.

So last night we started the night with some charty commercial shite - followed by a good 45 minutes of 80s and Disco - followed by a good hour and a half of commercial house, dance and some old skool Garage - though I think next week, I'm gonna try and get some club mixes of stuff by Ne-Yo, Lady Gaga and Pitbull. I think you know where I'm going there! We then moved things on for a bit - going up and down the genres - playing some stuff that I wanted to like Daft Punk's new anthem 'Get Lucky' and ended the night with some classic trance.

The most important thing was to keep the crowd in - which on the whole we did - certainly more people in there on Saturday at any one period than I can remember for any single band before last night - though I could be wrong!!!

And I got £50 from last night, which has been duly spent on upgrading Traktor Pro to Scratch to compliment the Numark TTs and more importantly the Traktor A6 that I recently bought for that purpose and to plug into mixers in other clubs so I don't need to be lugging around my VMS4!

A good night all in all.
