Do you have alcohol drinks during your DJ set?
If so, how many?
:roll:

Or you like to water yourself afterwards?
:mrgreen:

Not exactly a high rolling DJ, so my experience doesn't count for much.

However, a couple before, and maybe one with me, but I won't have more than a few sips. I have stuff to do. I mean, I'm not coldplay or anything.

No!

I'm working. I don't drink when I'm working.

I also want to be 100% in control of my body and my mind. I need to do my job, and interact with others while I'm doing it.

I don't want to require a visit to the mens room while I'm working either, leaving my equipment unattended.

Plus I need to drive home afterwards.

Why would you want to drink? I used to have one beer per set, but then I realised I was an alcoholic.

I might have 2 to 3 that night... but when I did a residence for a short bit I'd get mad hammered. I'm talking shot after shot with burnt mixed drinks. Most the time I'd blackout during my set and wake up in my bed. haha... but that's because it was a college bar, and no one gave a shit. That's when I'd experiment, and fuck around.

and no that's not why I don't do it anymore, I don't do it anymore because it's not my style... and I'd rather shove a straw up my pee hole, than to listen to a drunk chick telling me 500 times to play her song. Sorry sweetheart, but Toby Keith doesn't mash well with MGK

I believe you should have fun, but not at the expense of your craft or your reputation. A few drinks are fine if you know you can truly handle it, more than that courts disaster IME.

Totally agree with that..
There should be some line and all, but having some fun along the way is part of job for a DJ. If he's in a good mood people gonna feel that for sure.

I like to party - drink, dance, etc. I take my music and DJ profession seriously, but since I DJ mostly for people who are partying - i.e. clubs, festivals, after-hours parties with friends, etc - then I like to party with them. I obviously don't get hammered, but I am definitely there to party with the crowd. I spin and we drink together, we all dance together, and we all have a good time ;)

I never drank before my set, that could turn awful.

I will drink during my set but not before. First sip happens when the first record drops. Whether I have two beers or five beers depended on the night, but if I start drinking during my set I'll play fine.

If I'm a bit sauced before my set my mixing will be loose.
