Camp Attack, taking over the club every Friday night, will begin next week and will feature Aaron and Andy.com‘s DJ Aaron.
Club Ivy owner Greig Wilson says it’s hard to please everyone, and Camp Attack will help with that. “It was created as we can’t please everyone all the time, so having a series of club nights with a unique musical theme will appeal to different people.”
Greig says the recent uproar over music at Club Ivy was in relation to a stand-in DJ and not the new resident DJ for Saturday nights. “DJ Empire is the Saturday resident who brings to the job an excellent DJ CV, and is open to all sorts of music types and requests.”
An ability to read a crowd and play what the customers want to hear are qualities Club Ivy look for in resident DJs, Greig says. “I was a DJ for ten years,” he says. “So I understand it’s very important to be in sync with your audience.”
Greig wants to stress that pop music is “here to stay” at Club Ivy, and won’t be phased out. “We love Lady Gaga, just not ten times every night,” he laughs.
Club Ivy is also launching a monthly retro night, featuring music from the 80s and 90s. Keep an eye on the Club Ivy website for details.
