It was sort of inevitable that DJ Honky came into being. You know how it is - you're travelling on business in Europe, and you decide to come back to the US via Iceland because it drops the price of the ticket. You've packed a pile of dusty old funk 45's in your luggage, and you manage to convince a club on the main street in Reykjavik to let you DJ for the daydrinkers (11pm-midnight), even though you've never touched a mixer or more than one turntable before in your life. It's a common problem, I know. There's no telling what DJ Honky will play - pretty much everything is fair game, from a heaping helping of soul and funk to Puerto Rican salsa, to Polish jazz, Nigerian afrobeat, Kenny Rogers, and yes, even the infamous "Pease Porridge". Here's what audiences in Iceland are saying about DJ Honky:
"Hey, when can we listen to what we want to listen to?" - Drunk guy at bar.
A couple stories:
Occasionally, I put mixes together for friends and nice folks I meet on my travels. Email me with your mailing address if you'd like a copy of one - but realize it might take quite some time for me to get back to you.
