This place usually has a band on the bar stage and a DJ in the "dance hall" back room (with a nice large stage and top of the line PA system. Last night, we were paired up with a pretty popular local DJ who has his own draw.
Three things made this a good night:
1) After the first set, a musician friend of ours said he loved it and asked us to play at his wedding.
2) Quite a few people told us that they came for the DJ, but stayed for us.
3) The manager pulled Amy aside between sets and told her to get up with the booker to get more dates throught the year.
We'll hit a couple more of our "old" venues in February and March. I'm hoping we get the same reaction!
