I agree with all of that. I work in suburbia. You have to travel at least an hour to get to a fancy nightclub. We have small ones locally that try to act big but I had no desire to attract the same clientele. I would tell prospects my niche was second marriages. This caters to an older audience that I had more in common with. Older crowds also require more nuanced MC skills. This made me stand out from the typical high energy DJ.What was a standard then is different than a standard now. It also is regional. If you’re in an area with few to minimal nightlife spots, or work w crowds that don’t really go out much in that capacity, their expectations will be different than say my crowd, who go to Vegas, Miami, Mykonos, beach clubs, etc on a consistent basis and have a lot of experience and knowledge as to what sounds right for them.
