DJ Kurt Hudson Tavern Party Recap – TheBoken.com Spins Tunes Till Closing Time
One of the best apps for iPad by far and away in my humble opinion is DJay by Algoriddim. The link for the app is at http://www.algoriddim.com/djay and this app gives you pretty much a full functioning portable DJ studio, all just on your iPad. The app allows you to automix, scratch, adjust tempo without bending pitch, access your iTunes Library, loop and provide a variety of effects like the pros. The interface is slick and and very easy to learn and I have had a lot of fun with it during my DJ Kurt nights every Wednesday at the Elysian Cafe Fall through Spring. I usually start there at 9:30pm or when the dinner crowd winds down. You can spin tunes and playlists just using the standard iTunes app but this just adds a lot more possibilities. I had started out doing my guest DJ duties with the old school iPod wheel but this app can make an amateur keep a lively mix and dance party going.
Last night I was guest DJ at the Hudson Tavern in Hoboken, NJ. Normally Ruben who bartends there weekends runs the music show but he was off duty last night and the other Saturday bartender Kerry asked me to fill in as a guest DJ. I would like to thank Kerry for the invite and all my friends and acquaintances who seemed to enjoy the night. I play a wide variety of music from different eras but on a Saturday night you generally have to stick with party rock and upbeat danceable songs. Still, I was able to sneak in some Marvin Gaye, Jackie Wilson and Ray Charles to give the night a bit of old school variety. Professional DJ’s need not worry about me taking over the Hoboken Club scene, I just occasionally do it for fun as being editor of TheBoken.com is enough of an extracurricular activity. I did not promote this event but next time I get the call as guest I will let readers know.
But just in case someone else needs a guest DJ I have a new logo in mind:)……
