So from our end your event will run hassle free, without any problems.
Let me tell you how it all started for me, Tony Curini, owner and operator of DJ First. It seems such a long time ago when I first got my taste of being a DJ. It was at a teenage social club where, at the tender age of sixteen, I was curious and amazed watching the DJ perform. He must have spotted me gawking as he called me over and we started talking.
I was in awe, talking to the DJ. He asked my name and if I was having a good time. Then I let it rip with question after question on the what, where and how of everything DJ. He could see I was genuinely interested and spent the next hour showing me what to do. Then he asked what song I really liked. I answered Walk The Night by the Scat Brothers. He rummaged through his record collection and there it was. When he played it for me I was hooked!
The next few years were educational to say the least. While studying full-time for a degree in electronics and working weekends as a roller skating rink DJ, I also coordinated a number of garage and house parties. My big break didn’t come until I started working in the niteclub scene. It was a step up working at some of the glamorous clubs of the time. The 80s and 90s were spent working at such institutions as Tunnel Night Club, Ritz Nightclub, Palladium Theatre Restaurant, lnflations, Downunder Rock Café, Chasers, Chevron and Bombay just to mention a few.
It was great rubbing shoulders at the Sony, RCA and EMI record meeting every month with other DJ’s just starting out like John Course (Ministry of Sound), Andy Van (Madison Avenue), Paul Mac (Artist), and Anthony Pappa (DMC World Champion). Just regular guys doing what they do best, entertain. At that stage I saw the opportunity to leave the niteclub scene and create my mobile DJ business, DJ First. And as they say, the rest is history…

The music was perfect
It was a night to remember. All the staff loved the Christmas end of year party, the music was perfect everyone had a ball. Sorry you had to lug all the equipment up the second level but the Mifa Contemporary Art’s venue and your effect lighting and crystal clear sound system choice really set the mood. Thanks, same time next year.
