Upcoming DJ engagements:
Kate Hedin - DJ
Being a conservatory-trained musician, Kate has a deep understood knowledge of
elegant catfights. She also has a great appreciation for jazz music. Kate is
a regular DJ at Washington DC's The Jam Cellar, and at swing dance events across
the nation. Her ear for music is in such high demand that she has arranged
competition music for national events like The Boston Tea Party and at ILHC.
Kate favors 1930s and 40s swing, like Chick Webb and Benny Goodman.
Bobby White - MC
Bobby got his start MC-ing for the famous LCA Charity "Bachelorette"
Auction at Sewannee University, where his combination of vaudeville
wit and heart-wrenching speeches inspired hundreds of women to bid on
men dressed like hairy women. He also starred as the Emcee in a professional
production of Cabaret, so there's that. Since then, he was the Master
of Ceremonies for the Hot Jam dance club in Atlanta for 2 years, as
well as at the Bal Jam event each year, though he is still looking
for the perfect combination of MC skills to inspire hundreds of lindy
dancers to bid on men dressed like hairy women.
Bobby White - DJ
Bobby got his start DJing for the famous LCA parties at Sewannee
University, where his selection of Stevie Wonder and Madonna
sent freshmen into epileptic seizures of excitement and would
inevitably leave them running around the house wearing nothing
but a beer funnel. He also DJed a vintage radio program at his
college radio station which he knows at least one person listened
to (it was a college of 1200, after all). Since then, he has DJed at
numerous dances and is still looking to find the perfect song
combination to send Lindy dancers running around the venue
wearing nothing but a beer funnel.
Bobby has spun at such events including
Atlanta Varsity Showdown (Oct. 2006),
Down South Camp Meeting (Feb. 2006),
Bal Jam (Sept. 2005),
and Chatta-Atl-Nash-Knox-Nooga-Ville (2004, '05, '06). He has also been a regular DJ of the
ASEDA monthly dances, the
GATech monthly dances,
and a House DJ for Hot Jam,
Atlanta's Monday night venue. His favorites to spin are Count
Basie, Sidney Bechet, Benny Goodman, Willie Bryant, Slim,
Slam, and Django, with particular emphasis on lasting dance classics.
