DJ Seminar: It’s not all bad on the “Dark Side”!

Wednesday, August 22, 11 am – noon, Muse Hall A&B

At EXPO 2018, DJs-turned-managers will discuss the lessons they’ve learned as they help cultivate better working relationships between management, DJs and entertainers at our “break-out” seminar on Wednesday, August 22nd.

Many DJs consider their role to be part of a club’s management structure, especially if they are responsible for “running the rotation” of entertainers. But what happens when a DJ actually becomes a gentlemen’s club manager? What experiences can they bring from their time as a DJ to their new role as manager, and what lessons can they bring from their new role as a manager to assist their club’s DJs and entertainers?
