I got a chance to see three different events while I was away on vacation. Nice to sit back and not be responsible for anything. The first was a white gala beach party on the beach. So I’m heading back from the beach and I see these guys moving these huge bass bins, speakers, moving heads & assorted equipment and carrying these across the sand. Along with guys up to their waist digging holes, later I found out to plant truss. Now with the heat & humidity it feels like 95 degrees with the sun beating down on you. All I have to say is hell no & every other 4 name word I can think of would I move that much stuff over-sand. I have to give them props, the setup looked & sounded good. Although DJ needs the good smack in the head. Why? the uncensored version of “Shots” and “Be Faithful was played with even though there were many really young kids there. The look on the parent's faces was priceless. I’m sure there was plenty of other inappropriate stuff in the Spanish but I don’t speak Spanish well enough to pick that out. The second event was a foam party in the pool. The guests loved it. They must be using a different foam formula now because it was gone quickly after the event. The last time I did an indoor event where they had foam, they got the foam in the pool and the Hot tubs. And there was foam everywhere even when we left 2 hrs later, they were still trying to empty the foam pit. The last event was the headphone party with I guess with the Just Dance program. Great as parents gave their kids headphones and didn’t have to listen to the music. In all the entertainment was pretty good and I won’t be complaining about my work being hard. One worker we spoke to it takes him two hours to get home.

Sounds like a fun vacation. I'm going on vacation this week and am looking forward to being able to just be a guest and not part of the entertainment.
Last December I DJ'ed some events at the Hard Rock Hotel in Los Cabo and every staff member was very specific about only playing clean music. That was a given for me but after reading stories like this I now see why everyone kept mentioning it. Some DJs just don't think or pay attention to what they are playing or the environment and it makes it harder for the next DJ.

I normally take cruises.....never a problem....
I am a beach guy, we spend everyday at the beach and in the lazy River. I did do the Star Trek Cruz which was very nice. Our next Cruise is the Disco Cruise in two years with groups from the Disco Era & 80s. Looking forward to that as I am into live music. But we still have to fly down to Miami to catch it.
