Christmas Night Party at Club 981

I played the annual Christmas night party at Club 981 in Neguac (near Miramichi) again the other night. What a party. I did this last year too. I would have expected that not a lot of people would come out to party on a Christmas night, but that was a mistaken assumption.

I've got a set list below, for anyone who was at the event and is trying to figure out some of the songs that I was playing. I assume that people would have known all the tracks from the last hour and a half, but maybe not some of the songs in the first half of the evening. I started out with a bit of rock & even a couple country songs, then moved into current pop music. However, when I started getting into dance music, everyone started requesting "classic" mainstream hits, so after the Lady Gaga track that I played, I gave up trying to play newer music and just went with songs that were a couple years old. As a DJ, it's good to play what the crowd wants to here.

For anyone in Halifax, I'll be playing a show with David Anthony on Thursday evening. This should be fun ... we used to DJ together pretty frequently about ten years ago, back in the days of vinyl, but we haven't played together in a decade. That show will not be mainstream/pop - look for a classic house set on Thursday evening.

Anyway, here's the set list from Christmas Eve:
