Hillside Elementary has been having me out to DJ their annual family dance night for the last couple of years. This year they had an 80’s theme, so there was a sprinkling of hits from the 80’s (for parents I suspect) and then a LOT of requests from the kids. The playlist appears below. I provided DJ services, the sound system, uplighting (19 fixtures), dance floor lighting, and mic’s for announcing the costume contest and the raffle giveaway.
