I agree, but I don't entirely blame the DJ. I assume the DJ was told the style of event that was being held and made musical choices accordingly.
I have posted a lot of text towards both my complaints and praise for both this year's ball and the last, and I think that the ball could be even better next year than last year by taking the good from both.
For my previous rants, see both the main crystal ball topic (now locked) and the topic on the crystal ball in the Suggestions/Gripes forum.

But I don't want to make the people in charge think it was a disaster. I liked the length of the lesson and the atmosphere was very nice. I think whoever did the decorating did a really nice job. Layout was perfect, just the right amount of tables to dance floor. I also liked how quickly they got things organized and settled. I think if organizationally they do things the same for next year that would be great, just make sure the DJ knows he isn't at prom or a particularly low class wedding reception.
I guess I'm mostly disappointed because I went to the effort to request in the forums BEFORE the dance that I would like it to be a bit classier and I feel like that was completely disregarded. Though to be fair, they did play the one specific song I asked for, just not much else in that style. Maybe I should have compiled a complete list for him instead of assuming he'd get the drift. Oops, my bad.
The boy and I will be back again next year because I think the level of organization points upwards. But I really hope the music is classier next year.

I also was watching the dance floor and noticed when I played some types of music a lot of people would leave the dance floor so I was playing the music that most people were dancing to. I did play slow music and it seemed like after two slow songs people were sitting back down so then I played some upbeat music and got people out there.
I also made several announcements throughout the dance for requests and I had a lot of requests given to me and I played 99% of the requests that were written down. (And alot of the requests were top 40 songs and club music) To fix this problem in the future I would suggest to the organizers that they promote this forum better and get the word out to guests to put your requests down ahead of time. That way the DJ will know in advance exactly what to play. If I was told not to play a certain style of music I would not have played it, but I was told to play everything from 60s-today's music and to treat it like a wedding reception. I was really trying my best to please everyone, so I apologize to those that were not happy with the music choices.
And for the person who said the volume was too loud, I didn't have much control over that because there was a separate sound booth running the volume and the sound levels.
