Here is a question for Deejays and Non-deejays alike.
Alright, with all the great clubs through the years, where would you
like to spin in? Somewhere you never played at, but always wanted to. No more then a few please. And explain WHY??

Facade - Because a good dj wouldv'e ruled Miami at this club (spectacular)
Studio 54 - For obvious reasons
Club NU - Just to say I did (didn't like the club too much)
Copa Cabana - to go down in history spining at one of the most famous clubs
Gallery Turnmills (London) - Many a great deejays spun here. The crowd very responsive
MOS (of coarse) - Fantastic sound system and a very responsive crowd
Anything in Ibiza - The WOMEN!

I think you got it all wrong here Ray, a few is not 8!! And you did not tell us why. Try again, I know that you can do it! LOL- ME, I would have enjoyed spinning in New York's PARADISE GARAGE. They loved Larry so much there. Can you imagine any deejay who could do what he did, but mix as well. Man, they might have named a street after me!! LOL- I also would have liked to spin in Atlanta's BACKSTREET in the 80's. This club was packed day & night, seven days a week. It featured the first deejay booth with four turn-tables, and two CD turntables. Always to a dancing and frenzied crowd. In Philly, there was a club called SECOND STORY. Always full of cute Italian women. Every time I visited, it was a good night. :wink:

Infinity-NYC
12West-NYC
Studio 54-NYC
Music Box-Chicago
Ministry Of Sound-London

Infinity,12West (1976-1979)for the music of this period,the madness of the crowd and the great,loud and clear sound systems.
Studio 54 (1977-1978)for the glamour and sleazness of the place!
Music Box (1984-1986)because is the place that early house music was born,between disco classic re-edits and european electronic stuff (don't believe the lies about the Warehouse,same BS with Paradise Garage)
Ministry Of Sound...I think I have the time and I can make it LOL.Hall Of Fame for every DJ in the world!

Guys, Pete must be pulling his hair out! A few is three or four. Not eight!! He can be so anal about those things!(PETE'S NOTE-- He is right!)

I wish I could have spun in Big Daddy's! Or Sammy's, get it, ANYWHERE!! I never really spun in a club, except for private parties!! But I would have gotten fired very Quickly!!

1235- In it's day, it was the best club in the south. Always full, top equipment, lights and women!

THE LIMELIGHT- Same as above, in it's day, it was the best Club in the south. Always full, top equipment, lights and women!


STUDIO 54- I think the reasons are obvious. Wasn't this the PINNACLE??

I look at it a little different.

There was a club in Miami, NO MEN ALLOWED! The deejay was OCTAVIO MACHADO (MIXMACHINE), the only man there! It was a lesbian night club! The CHERRY GROVE, need I say more!

In New York City, in the mid-70's, again, obvious reasons- PLATO'S RETREAT!

In Fort Lauderdale, THE COPA, the long time greatest Gay club in the south. Why, they danced to everything. Can't beat that!

I would have loved to spin at Starship (1977). It was a state of the art Rosner Sound system, very clear and loads of bass. Great open space & fantastic lights!!!

Also The Loft (1976)---for the sub-woofers and the freedom of genres of music I could play there.

Since I only spin in a hair salon and PATO Parties, I would have loved to spin in any club. BOND'S comes to mind first! Crisco Disco is another. The sleaze, the drugs, the men! I would have been in heaven!!

My top three dream gigs in reverse order;

Image..(3rd)..You have to experience this club to believe it. Amazing atmosphere in cool surroundings. Best sound system that i have ever heard. Friendly patrons who have nothing but love for there fellow man...probaly down to the drugs that one...A dream ticket to spin there for any Dj in the know!

Image..(2nd)..Never went but always dreamed of spiining there..54 brought Disco to the attention of the rest of the world. Tv footage, books, dj's, films and personalities from 54 all add fuel to fire for me. Only a dream now but i tend to revisit it alot these days!

Image..(1st).The Casino Club in Wigan Uk played the foundations of my music love affair that i cherish the most (60's Soul).None of your nancy pants patrons here..it was for your serious clubber that came for one reason only and that was the music. This joint was an all-nighter..the doors would open midnight and would close at 8am...during the eight hours the floor always seemed full...this was a serious place!..the Dj had to be on top of his game here or an empty dancefloor was the result as the crowd could be unforgiving at times!...Would have loved the challange of spinning here...the pressure, the atmosphere and joy of it all would have been something to behold for me.

Both of you seem kind of testy, what's up? :wink:
