For The First Time Ever, I Forgot To Show Up For a DJ Gig
Hello Friends, Matt James here. Gather round and let me tell you an age-old tale about what an absolute moron I am. Oh, and a disclaimer to all my upcoming 2021 brides, I will not forget about your wedding. Most likely.
I typically don't DJ anything except for weddings. No anniversaries, birthdays, homecomings etc. Not because I don't like those other events, but because I exclusively like to focus on the wedding industry. Well, a couple months ago a friend of mine had booked project graduation for Belfast high school and was going to be unable to do it. He asked if I would mind taking the gig to help him out so of course I obliged.
Last night at about 5:30 I was headed into Augusta. We had been hanging out at my parent's house enjoying the pool with the kids and I was going into town to get some delicious Red Barn for everyone. As I was just getting into town, my phone rang. It was the contact at Belfast High School, Meg. She asked me where I was. I told her I was in Augusta. Then the panic set in.
She proceeded to tell me that project graduation was about to start in less than half an hour and they wondered why I wasn't there setting up. Oops. I completely frigged up the dates. I had put the event at June 20th on my calendar, not the 13th.
I told them I was turning around immediately, headed home to grab my gear, and speeding for Belfast. I ended up arriving at about 6:30 and by that time the DJ who was supposed to play the overnight portion of the event was there setting up. They had called her to come in and play because she was close and could get there faster.
Long story short, everything ended up okay. The other DJ played my 6-9 spot and I played the 10-3 chunk. Obviously I hadn't been planning on being up all night so I'm a little fatigued as I type this from the Moose Morning Show studio. But that's okay, I'll make it through. And I'm so thankful that the staff and parents were understanding and kind to me. Oh, and congrats to the BHS class of 2021!
