At the age of 17, I bought my first pair of speakers… The money came out of my own pocket from my job at a local fish and chip takeaway/restaurant cleaning the dishes and making the batter. The speakers were to be used for a house party I was having. However, the party wasn’t quite as you’d imaging a 17yr old would have.
I spent two days gutting out my large garage, clearing everything to the shelves at one side and putting it all behind a giant tarpaulin. A table at one side, these two passive speakers with two scanners I had borrowed from a friend and we were away.
We charged £5 a ticket for 50 people to come and all the money raised was DONATED TO CANDLELIGHTERS, a local children’s cancer charity based at St. James Hospital, the specialist oncology departments of the Leeds Teaching Hospitals.
From there on DJing took off and here we are today, gigging every weekend for a whole range of events…
