What a bloody awesome gig. Probably my best New Year's Eve ever. Sure, we were working a seven hour VJ shift, but it was worth the effort.

Luxe is a small, intimate kind of club, and the gig had sold out quickly. The audience of about 350 was great - very sophisticated and stylish. Luckily, scruffy old VJzoo got to hide behind the beautiful 12' screen and back-project in comfort.

There were three DJ areas - we were outdoors in the amphitheatre and got to VJ to:

  • simone DJ'd, with alex t on trumpet - we used vintage jazz-musical footage, as well as a touch of glamour with Astaire and Rogers and other classics from the 30's and 40's.
  • ben m - we used vectorised footage of Luxe staff, including 'Galliano Hot Bartender of the Year' shortlister Andy McIntyre (go vote for him and he might win the $2k prize...)
  • james a DJ'd with vocalist georgia mcdonnell-adams - we used vintage party footage, including 1920's flappers en masse at midnight.
  • james a then played some great disco-tinged house, and we went to town with the sparkle and glitter with clips from Solid Gold, bollywood classic Disco Dancer and some more obscure secret sources :)

We had an absolute ball of a time - it was SO nice to be able to VJ properly for hours, with no other responsibilities. It was also great to be able to show friends and colleagues what we can do in a pretty much ideal environment.

Phil from Luxe Bar did an excellent job of stage-management as well as playing host. He did the rounds every half hour or so to check that we were happy, and to tell us how much people were enjoying the visuals. Everything went so smoothly and the seven hours went by in a flash.

The screen was supplied by Matrix Productions and was very good, considering it only cost $180 to hire including side drapes - no repairs, spots or stains. That would have to be the cheapest screen hire in Perth!
