Oddly enough it didn’t take me long to get some work here in San Diego. I was born a performer, playing piano recitals since I was 5 years old. If I am not playing music for people I feel physical and mental pain.
So what am I doing? Currently DJing a few dinner shifts at STK San Diego. I’m playing upbeat favorites as an open format dj.
As you can see it’s not too shabby. I hope I get to keep the gig, but you know how this industry works. So far I like it a lot. I get to play music I like and enjoy the atmosphere. Crazily enough this is the first time I’ve had direct deposit in over a decade.
I know the guests are at least happy. My first weekend I got tipped twice with gentlemen throwing money on my console without asking for requests. Being 43, I don’t see it being because I’m a hot a piece of ass and truly attribute it to my having a good vibe.
I work there this Friday and fly out to San Francisco for a private gig. It’s my first out of town gig in years. Momming can bring up lots of guilt and insecurities that you didn’t have before but I’m looking forward to getting out of town. I wish I would have planned better to stay longer and go out but oh well. 20 hours in San Francisco should be interesting.
I’ll definitely keep you posted!
