Following our Rock On summer holiday programme of DJ sessions at CYDS youth club in Leiston, two young people took to the stage and really rocked at the Saxmundham Family Fun Day on Bank Holiday Sunday.
Despite the weather (it poured steadily, all afternoon) the young DJs got people rocking to their mixes and whooping with delight, as they demonstrated their skills at mixing on the decks.
One young DJ, who before the event had been rather anxious about performing publicly, came back on stage after his set and said, “I want to do it again – I want to do it to a bigger audience and have more people hear the music.”
Meanwhile, professional DJs Sophie and Marco, who ran the sessions at CYDS, danced in the background and were thrilled with the skills and abilities of the young DJs.
Local DJ Lee, who very kindly let us use his PA system, declared himself to be ‘out of a job’; “I play songs, I can’t do what they’re doing, mixing tracks like that,” he said. “They’re brilliant.”
