More DJ drama at Club Ivy

It seems the DJ dramas at Wellington’s only gay nightclub, Club Ivy, are getting more scandalous, with the recent sacking of Friday night’s DJ Juzi.

Justin turned up to work on Friday night as normal, only to be told that this would be his last gig.  ”Apparently I was meant to be informed earlier, but management failed to get in contact with me”, he says.

“The reason given was that management felt that [Club] Ivy was not making a good enough turnover on Friday nights to justify having a DJ playing for the party-goers.”

Club Ivy owner Greig Wilson confirmed Justin was no longer employed.  ”Justin is not a DJ, he is a play list editor,” he says. “We have decided to use our own play lists for Fridays.”  Greig says there will not be a replacement DJ or “play list editor”.

Justin is critical of this move and says he isn’t sure the punters will be happy.  ”. . . it does help having a DJ to play requests and actually stay in check with what the crowd wants, not just setting iTunes onto shuffle,” he says.

But according to Greig, things are only getting better at Club Ivy.  ”Have you noticed the sound upgrade in Club Ivy,” he asks.  ”Four new subs have been installed and new high power amplifiers!”

It’s not enough to satisfy Justin, though.  ”I don’t mind being put out of the job, but shall probably rarely find myself going along to Club Ivy, unless the music situation is improved . . . so there is actually music I can happily sing and dance away to when having a night out with friends. After all, there are many other bars or even house parties around that can give me what im looking for.”

Greig is keen to hear feedback from Club Ivy’s customers directly.  You can email him on greig@clubivy.co.nz.

    Looks like I’ll stay at Mighty Mighty then. Better sounds – now Justin has gone, but I do think mixing the songs together into an all night continous track of gay anthems and new songs would be better then just a play list.

    I will miss Justin’s fabulous choice of gay songs!

  9. LOL – Palmerston North has a gay bar with a DJ….. So does S & M’s…. this is kind of tragic.

    A good gay bar needs a few things…..

    1. A decent DJ
    2. Great cocktails
    3. great staff.
    4. safe atmosphere
    5. Decent staff that dot feel you up in the bathrooms….

    Ops, sorry bout it:'(

    Sorry Greig…I must have missed the new sound system between music black outs and the tragedy that is Club IVY. Admittedly, I end up at IVY most weekends and have a good time but no DJ? Who are the gays to harass when the music isn’t twinky enough? I think Justin was a good DJ and I am sure the vacant DJ booth will certainly show in your takings…
