DJing at Herrang

I’ve just left Herrang after volunteering for the crash down of camp. I’m now slowly meandering my way to Italy where I’ll take up residence in September. Whilst I was taking classes and partying I had the opportunity to be a volunteer DJ on a number of occasions. DJing at Herrang was an awesome experience and I thought I’d share some of my experiences (and also how the volunteer DJing works – there’s not too much information out there about it) and vague meanderings about DJing there. I may get around to posting some other stuff about Herrang, but we’ll see how that works out with some of the other stuff I’m doing over the next few weeks.

DJed music at Herrang is done by the Head DJs, Staff DJs (Christian Bossert has a great post about being a staff DJ here) and Volunteer DJs. The crucial sets are looked after by the Head and Staff DJs with volunteer DJs generally given the less critical sets (for example in another room whilst the band is playing or early in the night). My sets ranged in length from an hour to more than 2 hours. Volunteer DJs will occasionally get to close out the night in somewhere like the library or the Dancebanan, but I don’t believe it happens often.

To be a volunteer DJ all you need to do is show up for one of the DJ meetings held on Sunday by the Head DJs. To be asked to DJ more than once all you need to do is not play crap music. The number of sets that you are asked to do will vary depending on the number of volunteer DJs, how late the dancers are staying up that week, how much live music is going on and whether the head DJs like you or not.

For volunteer DJs the perks are few: you get free entrance to the party on the evening you’re Djing (an important consideration if you’re planning on buying a party pass) and bike parking right outside Folkets Hus. But hey, you’re DJing at freaking Herrang (and I’m hoping the exposure will be good, now that I’ve moved to Europe).

There are 3 main dance spaces in the Folkets Hus, the main location for the evening partying

  • The Main Ballroom – with the exception of slow drag night and the occasional activity on the Friday night party the main ballroom is always lindy hop. Sometimes a band will play the ballroom.
  • The Dansbanan (aka the Dance Banana) – during week 1 this is the Boogie Woogie floor, for other weeks it’s usually lindy hop. Sometimes a band will play the dancebanan.
  • The Library – the library had quite a bit of variation. During week 1 it was slow dance themed, week 3 was balboa and there were other events in there too (often themed for the Friday party, Peter Loggins also played a New Orleans set there), but the intention is to keep the library relatively true to the Herrang music philosophy (there was a well attended discussion on this during week 5, which I missed).

Then there’s the secret blues dancing parties which occur in a variety of venues (including the Sauna, Heaven’s Kitchen or the foyer of Folkets Hus), to DJ these you need to contact the organisers (who vary).

Herrang’s music philosophy is well known. The focus is on big band swing recorded in the 1920s, 30s and early 1940s, with the late 30s early 40s period probably being the most played period. Contemporary bands that play in a similar style are also played (though I feel that there may be a little too much reliance on very popular bands like Gordon Webster and Glenn Crytzer). Perdido (1942) and Now You Has Jazz (1956) were two of the most popular tracks by my ear unless you count the 2 hours of Bananaphone (1994) which completed the end of the ultimately bad lindy hop music showcase on the last Thursday of camp.

I played what I consider to be relatively conservative sets. You don’t come to Herrang to experiment and you don’t come to Herrang to play crap (unless it’s bad music night). Having said that I think flexibility is also very important. The following DJ may be late or not show up at all; you might be asked to DJ a lindy room, only to be faced with a room of balboa dancers (both of which happened to me – the balboa freaked me out a little, not being a huge balboa dancer I normally need some time to prepare for a balboa set, but I recovered eventually). I also Djed one of the peer auditions for the Advanced Lindy Hop stream which was fun. About a third of the tracks I played were recorded before 1939 and half before 1944. A third of the tracks I played were contemporary (though that does include a lot of the tracks I dropped during the secret blues party I DJed) with the remainder being from the late 40s and 50s.

Djing at Herrang was an awesome experience and I hope to be back spinning next year.
