The Life Of A DJ



Welcome to my Blog on the web! Thanks to Word Press I thought would give it a go and see how far it goes….

As you may or may not know, I am a DJ here in South Africa (17 years so far) if you want to find out more visit my other space on the web

Over the years TheBandit hasn’t really aired his views and rarely stood on his soap box….well maybe things will change! There is a button at the bottom of this article called “add comment” you are invited to join in….
The web is changing at a rapid rate and we can now do things we never thought possible….2006 will see me doing something really special for your downloading pleasure….more shall be revealed…..

This weekend is New Year, I’ll be on Jacaranda 94.2 for the Maxi Edition of Saturday Night Fever 18h00 – 22h00 from Monte Casino! Clint will join me at 22h00 and we’ll do the last two hours together…

Then I’m off to H2o Wild Waters Boksburg, I’ve done this event for I don’t know how long…but love every moment of it! This year will be different as I normally play before Midnight, due to my radio commitments I am playing after midnight. I will be there from 02h30 Saturday am….If you’re still standing I’ll see you there!!!

All that’s left for me to say is – Have a good one, most of all have a safe one!

  1. Derek, howdi….great to see you up on the net with a Blog. Been meaning to put one together myself for a while now. Anyways, its good to be the first to add a comment to your’s.

    Excited to hear what you will be revealing in the new year, sounds exciting.
    I hope you have a fantastic New Years party at H20, it will be my first new year where i wont be playing, so going to spend some time at home with some friends and listening to good tunes.

    Take it easy, be safe and may 2006 be a BIG year for you.

  2. Hi Derek,
    Hope you are well. What can I say, We partied the night away on New years eve here in the U.K had a fab time. I really wished we were partying with you though under warm South African skies.

    I hope 2006 is a excellent year for you and I wish you everything of the best.
