Time to Stand Up: DJ Ron Update – Friday, May 1st

This week I stood up.

Going for laughs

Last week I mentioned that I was inspired by a dream to attmept stand up comedy.  Well, on Tuesday, I did my first open mic and it went really well.  There were laughs throughout, which was surprising since it was a tough crowd.  Doing stand up comedy to a room of stand up comedians is like DJing to a room of DJs.  I am not sure if I will do it again, but I am planning to take improv classes when I move to Chicago.  Who knows, I might do another open mic here in Nashville? While I recorded my set and a few people have asked me for it, I am not going to post it because I think it is a bit too vulgar and graphic for public consumption.  (Picture from Spanky’s bathroom.)
Thank you

Speaking of moving to Chicago, I was completely overwhelmed by the response to last week’s update.  I can’t tell you how much I appreciate all the kind words of support.  Nashville will always be my home because I grew up here, as a DJ and gay man, at least.  You can count on monthly spots at Play and Tribe, so let’s just say that absence will just make my heart grow fonder.  (Rocking a vintage Nervous records hoodie.)

Back to Indy
So, last Saturday at Talbott Street was incredible.  This really hot guy came up and requested Bob Sinclar “Feel the Vibe.”  I was like, wow.   These guys know their music.  The requests were pretty evenly split between upfront EDM and circuit classics.  Mixing “Let the Joy Rise” and “Stranger in My House” with Jason Risk, Galantis, and Hardwell is a challenge that I love.  I will be back in Indianopolis on Saturday night, so come check me out at Talbott Street.

During Miami Music Week/Winter Music Conference, we did more than 50 interviews over the course of four days.  The first of the video interviews posted this week – tyDi.  The Aussie producer/DJ blends pop hooks and lyrics with trance and electro production to create some pretty massive club and dance radio hits.  He also just happens to be one of the nicest and friendliest guys that you would ever meet.  Check out the video interview here on Clubplanet – and watch our for new interviews every week!  (Picture with tyDi taken in Miami 2015.)

 

As always, I want to thank you for your support – it means more than you can imagine.
