View Full Version : WTF,I just don't get it

So I went out last night with 4 other guys ,all much younger than I,for our city's annual Mardi Gras party.We went to 4 different bars and at every single bar it was nothing but hip-hop,hip-hop-and more hip-hop.

Now granted I'm 44 and I saw more than a few people in my age range at each of the bars but what I don't get is wtf is up with these DJ's who play nothing but hip-hop?

I understand the bulk of your customers are into it but there are some of us who would like a little old school or even new rock thrown in from time to time.

Even when I requested a song,it's like,"I don't know man,I'll see if I can get to it."

As a former mobile DJ myself I always let my customers pick the music and although I didn't always agree with what they wanted to hear it wasn't my place not to play what a customer wanted.

I'll stop rambling now,it's just I really hate to think about quitting going out but this is getting really old and maybe therein lies my answer as I'm getting older too and it's either deal with the new or open my own rock-n-roll bar.

1) Hip Hop brings out the ladies.

2) Ladies like to dance and play horny for the guys.

3) Guys come out because the ladies are out.

4) Guys buy more booze for themselves and the ladies, thinking they are going to get laid.

5) Bar makes more money selling more booze because drunk horny guy thinks he's going to get with dancing horny lady if he buys her one more drink.

6) Guys go home alone, but remember the bar where all the ladies were drunk and dancing.

7) Ladies go home drunk and alone, but happy, knowing that there is a bar that plays awesome dance music, and the guys are dumb enough to keep buying them drinks even though it won't get them anywhere.

I feel your pain Nzoner- I usually don't know any of the new music. It all sounds the same to me. I prefer a live band that can mix it up-from Jazz to Blues to Rock. That way you get a nice variety without getting drubbed in the head by the same techno drum riffs. 3 Bass hits and a clap, 3 bass hits double snare, 3 bass hit and a clap.... It gets old fast.

Not trying to be a hater-just saying, there is not much originality in the Music biz-its all about image.

Yeah, I like a little bit of everything.

Hip hop has really taken over, it's pretty sad when all they talk about is bitches and hos, drugs, dubs, 40s, guns, look at the money I have, etc. In that sense, it's bad, but I just block that stuff out and listen to the beat. I like that. And it's not all bad, but most of it is. I'd rather listen to the edited version of rap music, than the real version, by the way. When I burn CDs, I burn the edited version of said rap songs because I hate every other word being vulgar, but that's just me.

After church this mornin' , took two of my kids over to Jimmy John's for lunch. We grab a coulpe of sandwiches and sit down in a booth, and they have a classic rock channel hittin' 2 fers, and they just started a Led Zeppelin set. Second song was "The Immigrant Song", and before it was all done, I had my 8 year old daughter and my 5 year old son throwing up double vikings and bangin' their heads. The staff got a kick out of it, and I told 'em as we left that it was a part of their cultural heritage..."We come from the land of the ice and snow...".

I do. I play whatever gets requested and fill in the rest with "like" music. Played a gig last night and yes there was some hip-hop... probably about ten songs in a 3 hour period. There was also some country and plenty of "party standards" i.e. AC/DC, YMCA, Cha Cha Slide, Cotton Eyed Joe, Chicken Dance, Twist and Shout, etc... Ended the night with Sweet Home Alabama.

I think Pour some sugar on me came out after Wild thing-but I am not sure.

But yeah Eddie was pissed when he heard his brothers drums on that song without permission. I think VH eventually got a settlement, because it went away pretty fast and he never said another word.

It was actually a pretty descent dance tune-not really my thing-but it gets the girls up there dancing.

Whatever happened to Tone anyway-he seemed like a pretty cool dude?

Yep you sound like you know your stuff. That looks like a good mix so everybody gets something they like out of it. Nice job, I will have to keep you in mind for any weddings and such that crop up.

A friend and I have seriously been kicking this around,we want to call it RETROS.While hip-hop and the like would be forbidden we'd still have a retro funk night,Parliment,Kool & The Gang,Ohio Players etc.Looking at drawing a crowd of 35 year olds + although I know some younger guys and gals that would definitely be at the place as well.

It ain't being made in America.:shake:
Amen. Whatever happened to the good old days when you had good old American rock and roll like Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Who, The Kinks, The Yardbirds, Pink Floyd, Genesis, Jethro Tull, and others.

I am glad that our American forefathers weren't lazy and learned how play guitar, because without guys like Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, and Jimmy Page what little American Rock and Roll we have left, might not be here at all.

Vedera is made up of younger folks but their music really attracts music lovers of all ages. They call it "indie" and pop rock. All I know is, it's really good stuff. (IMO)

They are playing at Starlight Theatre on May 1st, opening for the Fray.

Their next CD is being released by Epic records this summer and the samples I've heard are as good as the stuff on "Weight of an Empty Room".

They are the fastest rising, hottest band out of the Kansas City area. Check 'em out.
