DJs keep the party going
Our DJs are important members of the Tango Feast team, they keep the party going through day and night
David has been a popular member of Tango Feast since the beginning, A versatile DJ offering a vibrant set of traditional music. Although when DJ during the afternoon or morning, David will play traditional with a touch of not-so-traditional to influence the mood on the floor. David is in charge of alternative tango music in our neo-tango dance room so those who like an alternative also have a place to dance, creating a truly tango feast.

David’s music has a great taste carefully selected from the 1920s to 1950s and is played in the tandas interspersed with cortinas that take you back to your pre-tango dancing days.

He love playing the beautiful rich music that tango is. It’s a genuine pleasure for me to put together tandas that move people to dance. There is so much wonderful music to choose from and so much richness and depth. It’s amazing. There are wonderful orchestras, truly talented singers and some incredible combinations of both.
Not only that, nothing is fixed. Some months I love a particular orchestra and the next month I’ve fallen for another. All of us, whether we are dancers, DJs or both are always discovering something new in the music. Isn’t that marvellous? We are all very lucky to have Tango.
I enjoy playing music from the late 20s through to the 50s, but the majority of the tracks I play are from between 1935 and 1945.

At interview she said “I like to describe DJ’ing as a way of story telling. One song is already a little story. Combining 4 songs gives a little chapter. The combination of the tandas during the night creates the whole story.”
