5 Ways To Tell If Your Crowd Has Had A Good Time
I remember my first gig as a novice DJ. I was hired because I knew the person throwing the party, and I also charged half of what a DJ should be charged for an event that long. I won’t lie and tell you that it was a success, because I can tell you for sure that I was nervous and it was pretty obvious. I wasn’t as confident in my skills as I am today, and I failed to take notice to the crowd and their reactions to my music. A common mistake among all beginning DJs is forgetting that is about the crowd, rather than you – so it pays to take notice of how the crowd responds.
First off, if you seem nervous about the moves you are making at the booth, the crowd will sense this too, and likewise if you are having fun, the crowd will be having fun too. If people have completely forgotten that the DJ is there and are just enjoying themselves that this is a good sign; and having little verbal feedback from the crowd is just as good as them telling you you’ve done a great job. If you feel yourself nervous, step back from the booth from the second and collect yourself.
