The DJ Corner: By Furman Dominick
Summertime is here and it is hot outside so there are always cool places to shag. There are a lot of hot new songs to play for shaggers this year.
The Summer Workshop is in Atlanta this year in July. I am planning on going so I can keep up on what is new in the shag world. July 25 to 28 is Shagggin on the Santee at the Quality Inn in Santee S.C. This is a party that you will not want to miss. It Starts Thursday night with DJ Dan from Sumter in the ball room. On Friday Dan will start the music by the pool around lunch time and I will take over and play the tunes after him all afternoon. Where can you go and pitch your tent by the pool, bring you own drinks, and hear the best in beach and shag music all afternoon. DJ Skip from Columbia will be in the ballroom on Friday night. Jim Bowers and The Furm will be play for our wild and crazy pool party on Sat. afternoon. Jim will close it out Sat. night in the ball room. This is a park and party and bring you drinks for the pool. Cash bar in the ballroom. Hope to see you in the pool and on the dance floor.
Thanks for all of you that make it out to Ziggy’s on Thursday shag night for the club. MC and Ken are the new owners of Ziggy’s and are doing a great job with the food and drinks. They make it nonsmoking just for the OASC. Please support your club and other shag clubs in the area every chance you get. Without your support we will not have a place to dance. It is always good to see you out on the dance floor and we always welcome new faces. I am looking forward to seeing you on the dance floor with your happy feet. If would like to learn how to shag we will teach you.
I am like most DJ’s when it comes to music. You got to love it and have fun or you would not do it for it is more than walking in a place and playing music. We all spend hours playing music and buying and downloading music in our computers. We want to play what you want to hear and dance to. Please keep us informed what you like to dance to. Nothing makes a DJ happier than a full dance floor. Please support any place that plays shag music to keep the state dance alive. Go out have some fun for none of us are getting any younger. I am sure I will see you on the dance floor soon.
KEEP SHAGGIN AND MAY GOD BLESS,
