Hi i’m Mini, one of the djs at Rhodes wedding dj… Here’s a story about how I became a wedding dj and singer
In my last post I described how found my way on stage to became a singer, This week i will tell you how I fell into Being a dj…
Roger Essex and Ian Boyd, the lovely gay neighbours I told you about in pt 2 who introduced me to the gay scene in my home town. In 2011 they became managers of the best gay pub in town center called the Mail Coach. They didn’t feel that they wanted a drag queen to host their karaoke night, knowing I had some musical experience, they asked me. Having never hosted anything like this before I responded with ” I’ll give it a go!” Minioke was born. In the four years I hosted my weekly Minioke, I was also asked to host at Swindon and Wiltshire pride fund raising events as well as host a stage and sing on the main stage of the actual pride day itself. It was a wonderful community that supported me and I encouraged confidence with all my singers.
After starting off my djing skills at the Mail Coach I went in search of other venues who wanted a disco or karaoke and I found them in places like Corsham and Wantage. I even did a singing show with disco for a new year’s eve party in a local pub. Getting my Big Ben chimes exactly on 12 was a massive honour for me
In my next post I will be telling you how I ended up working on Rhodes island in Greece and how I became a wedding dj
