Last Night a DJ Saved My Life
June 6, 2006
Music. Makes the people. Come together.
Not among your friends, anyway. Sure, you've dreamed of a day when your untzing club buddies and KCR-Dubbies could groove as one. But can it happen?
Uh huh. Because DJ John Tripp, periodic spinner at the Hollywood Standard Hotel, MOCA, and the Thursday-night Speak Easy, is now available for hire.
With a carefully compiled selection of 45s from the 1960s to the 1980s, DJ John spins with an everything-old-is-cool-again vibe, from soul dance classics to Japanese funk rock to obscure samba and boogaloo - without a dud among them. So your crew, no matter how motley and eclectic, will be more than satisfied. And, yes, he takes requests.
Now, at $150 per hour, he may be a little steep for 24/7 residency in your home, but snag him for your next soiree and you'll be well on your way to witnessing dance-party synergy for the masses - and musical tolerance on a utopian scale.
It's enough to make anyone trip out. DJ John Tripp
