If I am the guest, I prefer to know ahead of time what I can expect. Some cash maybe, cab fare? If not cause your party does that poorly at the bar, how about a car ride and an offer to do extra promotion for me that night? You catch my drift?

Seems like promoters aren't even giving you that respect anymore, just getting lazy and riding off the "deep house don't make $$$" excuse, and don't even bother trying anymore...

The question implies that there is less respect coming from the host/promoter/resident dj for guest DJs now than there was back then (whenever that was). Is this decline in respect really happening?

I haven't experienced any overall change in respect given to me as a guest, but I've only had the opportunity to guest in my local area. Maybe it's different when you travel.

For cyring out loud, you want respect!!!!

Its DJing for Christ sake. You want respect, learn a profession, come up with a cure for cancer, or the like. Otherwise, it just whiney bullsh*t.

When you guest DJ'd at H*****n, didn't you bitch about it to me? You had complaints right? It's not about demanding respect, it's just about not getting disrespected...

Hey Ritchie,

I have a Sunday night party in DC called The Underground Soul Solution. I 've been doing the party.....going on 7 years.


I treat ALL of my guest djs as I wanted to be treated......With RESPECT.

I ALWAYS let him or her shine.

Now if they suck......It's their Funeral.

My thing is, do guest djs return the favor after you let them get on??

They're adjusting the sound cause you supposidly over driving it, which wasn't the case. Besides, they had all day to set sh*t up...

Anyhoo, I ain't been back since cause that's some pum pum sh*t. Seen it all the time, i.e., someone comes in and starts beating out your sound system better than "you," so you start to sabotage and engage in subterfuge.

Stop b*tching and play the music. Get over it. There could be a lot worse things happening to you.

I don't believe I gotta come of hiatus for this crap.....

I'd also like to add in your future endeavors as a professional dj to pay attention to what is actually being offered. If it's a startup spot with no pay let them tell you as much.

Use your previous gigs as food for thought when you make future engagements. Make notes of things that went against you with past negotiations/gigs and ask questions about things that concern you which are not clearly spelled out (promotion, etc.).

As you continue on your path you should be able to formulate a basis to determine which situations are best for you and which situations are not.

Peace

I've read this entire post and I don't understand the question or the responses. Is the question, "why don't name djs get respect" or "why should name djs get respect"

Clarity? graemlins/cool_shades.gif

aside from not getting paid the guarantee i have a pet peeve with some dj/promoters.

if you book someone as a guest dj, especially if you put them on the flier as the feature...don't put yourself on at the main time. that i think is disrespecful. using someone else to bring people in and then you play the main time? what's up with that?

To answer your question, there should be some sort of buddy system if you're respected as a dj. It doesn't happen a lot of times but it makes you wonder what certain people are really on. There are "djs" that are quick to ask you for a guest spot, but when they land something that's regular, you won't hear from them until they feel its time for them to do a guest spot at your party.

I agree with just about everything you explained up there - was just clarifying that this thread (to me) was about a particular guest DJ feeling disrespected ... and that reciprocity (when it comes to "implied expectations of a return DJing favor" down the road) is another issue all together ...

As far as reciprocity..I don't agree..If I offer you a guest spot it's NOT because I expect you to return the favor..it's because I think that you have something positive to bring to the party....If you hire me as a guest and I don't like the way that you spin..I aint puttin' you on just because you put me on..You gotta know how to beat the box ..plain and simple...All this favor stuff is why we are hearing all these mediocre jocks or cats spinning for the first time...it aint about favors it's about ROCKING a party.

Anyhoo, I ain't been back since cause that's some pum pum sh*t. Seen it all the time, i.e., someone comes in and starts beating out your sound system better than "you," so you start to sabotage and engage in subterfuge.

I know when I had guest dj's for the poetry parties (which was EVERY party), I showed them respect by actually opening up for them every time. That gave me more time to party. As far as the favor being returned, I wasn't looking for that.

Let me clarify something, The whole reason for having a guest dj is because you RESPECT the fact that this person can put together a good set of music... If money is your motivation for gettin guest spots then there will always be frustrated guest djs... You have an option to say YES I want to play or NO I want this amount of money for my time. I agree that guest should get paid, but it may not be what they want. My thing about favors is, does this person give others a chance to be a guest at his/her function?? It doesn't hurt to do favors IF you RESPECT a person's dj skills. Nobody has done shit for me, I like to think that I've earned one or two people's RESPECT as a dj.
Again, I see cats doing guest spots all over the city and some have a residence to... I don't see them "returning favors".
