Dancers around the city are waiting for you to return to DJing. Have you picked a DJ name yet? If so what is it? Where would your dream gig be and name 3 songs you’re psyched about playing.
I’m happy to be making a DJ comeback after a 5 year hiatus. Still haven’t picked a new DJ name, but am open to suggestions. My old DJ name back in the day was “D.J. Benny Ben”. My dream gig, would be DJing anywhere period. Rocking a Friday or Saturday night would be great. I like too many songs to pick just 3. As long as I know the song moves the person, makes them tap their feet, or break it down on the dance floor, then it’s good. Stay tuned for a holiday dance house party for my first practice DJing gig.

You’re a native New Yorker, but even natives need to chill sometimes. Describe your favorite “chillout” day in the city.
My favorite “chillout” day in the city would be hanging out on any rooftop or pier facing the Manhattan skyline with good company or by myself. Even as a native New Yorker I’m still amazed at the beautiful buildings/lights of the Manhattan skyline.
