Larger Crowds
My first large venue was a town festival where I
hosted Karaoke at the town grounds. This was a
volunteer job, but it paid off in the end, as I handed
out many business cards. I was nervous though this
was the first time I had to DJ in front of more than a
thousand people.
The way I handled it was that I sang the first song. I
figured that once I got that out of the way, anything
else I had to do on the microphone would be easy in
comparison. I sang
Keep Your Hands To Yourself
by
the
Georgia Satellites.
After that, announcing the next
singer, or introducing the band that followed my gig,
came easily.
It's a lot like diving right into a pool to get used to the
water, rather than trying to ease your way in. Once
you dive in, it becomes very comfortable for the rest
of the day.
