DJ Mannes: Making a House Party feel at Home

Posted: 03 Jun 2008 08:20 PM CDT

This quote from 24 Hour Party People makes so much more sense to me now...

“And tonight something equally epoch-making is taking place. See? They're applauding the DJ. Not the music, not the musician, not the creator, but the medium...This is the moment when even the white man starts dancing.”

You know the first 45 minutes of any house party...the foamy beers from the first tap of the keg, the on-time guests who don’t know anyone well enough to show up “fashionably late”, and the silence that deafens the room?

I recently experienced this flash-back to my high school daze and was almost ready to bounce before the foam from my first heady beer settled. Luckily for me, the evening was an eyeful of colorful east central Floridian coastal kids with cut off jeans, shirts, punk mullets, and yes body-odorific bare chests.

I enjoy being the observer but after spending quite sometime arm-pit level and unable to get back to the once heavy keg, the annoying factor went way up.

Just as I was beginning to forget why I had traveled the hour and a half to a house party where I knew absolutely no one, the lights dimmed and the music blared. DJ Mannes had finally set himself up to make this party house into a home for music and dance lovers!

Everyone mutated to the dance floor melting into his Baltimore style of sounds. Suddenly arms were flailing, the odors became one, the party goers suddenly old friends, and even the wall flowers began to bud with movement.

DJ Mannes did his job and well. He walked into that house adorned with a nerdtacular T-Qualizer Shirt from his beloved and walked out of the trashed party house his head held high and his shirt collar filled with well deserved cash money tips!

It's On:Orlando would like to thank DJ Mannes for being completely phenomenal and bringing home the house party.
