We all know the saying, “Anything worth having, one must put in the work”. So, I know that it’s going to be a lot of work before I get anywhere further with DJing. Yeah, I’ve done some pretty incredible gigs, especially for me to not have been DJing as long as others that I have met, but I know that there’s still a lot of work that I have to put in. But no hard work goes unnoticed… Unless you give up.
I remember the first time I approached a Victoria’s Secret about DJing. It was after my second time attending WWD Magic, and I needed more fashion under my belt. (Get it haha) So, I decided to start with stores and brands that I was familiar with; In other words places that I shopped. So I sat and thought about the stores that I like, and I went to them. The first one I went to was in the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace. The way that they had redesigned their store is incredible, and I still want to DJ there. Lol, But that wasn’t the first Victoria’s Secret that I DJ’d for. I actually haven’t DJ’d at that one (yet… I hope). The first time I DJ’d for Victoria’s Secret was at The Venetian Palazzo, for their Pink Panty Party. I can’t even tell you how many times I went to each Victoria’s Secret, and how many managers I had to go through. Luckily one manager remembered me from one of my previous attempts to DJ for them while he was an associate. Shout out to Harley for that first shot. I really appreciate that, and I had a blast DJing for you.
For their set, I played a series of woman artists. As it was Victoria’s Secret. But of course, being a DJ had to mix it up. We started off with Mr. Black Tie setting the pace with some Liquid Jazz. And then I went into my mix. I was getting a lot of love from customers, and staff. I’m hoping to come back and show them how much more I’ve improved from that time they heard me spin.
