    Me and my mate just held a drum and bass night at our local bar, it went really well, we got about 450 people, took just under £2000 and made a fair amount of money to put into our next event....

    as i was djin as well i thought we would use my needles, when we were packing up i put my needles in the box....when everything was packed up the needles were gone! i looked everywhere and i knew someone had robbed it...im gonna look at the cctv footage tommorow...

    but what a fucking pisstake! i cant have a mix unless i buy new ones, and i dont have the money!

    WHAT IS THE POINT!?!?!?!

    Absolute bastards. People who go around doing things like that are jokes, stealing gear is the lowest of the low, they dont deserve to call themselves musicians. No respect.

    Thats actualy annoyed me! Fair play getting a night going though, best of luck!

    a) sorry to here about the loss

    b) £2000 at net profit means theres money in the kitty that has to be used to replace the missing needles ,.. its just like if a window got smashed or the place got damaged you as the promoter that nite will have to pay out of the profits,simple... no profit can be amounted until all out goings of that nite have been paid for ,... your needles were an out going (loss) hence comes out of net profit ....

    c) it could of only been 1 of a few people ie those that were left at the end of the night to pack up .. did you search them , you have the right to you know ,.. if you state it was only your friends that were there id say you have some shady friends and aint the real deal ...

    d) the point being is life ...its not / isnt a easy ride , always someone gunna hate , disrespect , be negative , spoil a good thing , real champs rise quickly and use there negative nrg and plough on with positivity ...

    e) become responcable for your own kit , make what your doing a biznes and be proffesional about it , if theres jerks who aint part of the dj box * tell them to push off* they have no place there , at the end of the night aline a small group and only those u trust to be in the building while doing close down ,

    f) again i am sorry to here about the loss , but dont let this down heart you and continue doing your positive thing ...

    g) goodluck :wave:

    Simple: DJ's bring their own needles.

    It's shit but I had to lose a pair of banana carts before I realized this.
