I am a house music lover who accidentally became a DJ because of my frustration of not finding the house music I wanted on cds. I started my journey late in the game (age 42) and spent the past 5 years learning to mix and playing music in my livingroom for my own enjoyment.
I finally got the courage to play in public at an "Open Turntable" and, after appearing a few times, I was offered an opportunity to play during the breaks of the regular band and eventually advanced to playing 4 and 5 hour sets.
For the detailed story of my DJ Journey... stop by www.myspace.com/djrenay. I want to be an inspiration for those who think that age hinders your dreams...It really doesn't....Dreams are meant to be followed and realized...You've just more patience to do it at an older age.
I developed a passion for soulful and gospel house music after hearing selections from SuSu Bobien, Barbara Tucker, Cece Rogers, Kenny Bobien and the list goes on.
"Gospel house music inspires me and assures me that it's gonna be alright - even when I am frustrated and unsure of my next step. It deposits my troubles in a safe place until I am ready to pick them up again - mostly in a better state of mind than when I started. That's why I love gospel house music."
