When people ask Mobile DJ's how a particular event went you may hear a DJ say one of the following phrases:
1. I tore the place apart
2. I burned the house down
3. I raised the roof off the joint
4. I had em' tearin' up the dance floor
I must admit that as a mobile DJ I have been guilty of spouting off these very same comments to curious folk. Well FINALLY (after 22 years in the DJ biz) I can finally say that "I had em' tearin' up the dance floor" and mean it literally. Okay it's true that this dance floor may have been severely lacking in quality but I'll take what I can get...
Person: "Hey Steve... how did your gig go?"
Me: "They tore up the dance floor"
