I had a country club kiddie party (6 to 9:30) with 9 PM substituting for midnight. Immediately following Auld Lang Syne was "I Love It" by Icona Pop.

Ryan Seacrest played You May Be Right, actually it was Billy Joel who sounds amazingly good live.

I usually do Shout into 12a, then Auld Lang Syne, followed by Don't Stop Believin' by Journey, right back into 128bpm music. Worked like a charm!

When I did work NYE, I always used the Auld lang syne version done by Drew's famouds party music. Some might think that was cheezy, but I liked it, and it sis work, which is all that really counts, whatever you decide to play.

It was really done well, and have a driving 135 beat, just perfect for the moment.

I decided after 2001 that I didn't like the drunks, and after a few narrow scrapes on the road, decided that I just didn't like the Gig, and the stupidness of drinking and driving. people get stupid that night like no other.

Last night I operated a volume control on my Samsung Big screen TV ;)

I agree. Since 2003 I do 1 of 2 "Kiddie" parties (at 1 of 2 area Country Clubs). Start at 6PM, Ball-drop at 9PM, over at 9:30, home (SAFELY) in time to ring in the New Year with my wife & family. Yeah, there's larger $ to be had by working more traditional gigs, but it just isn't worth it to me given the hassles of "Amateur Night". -Z-

Same here

We have a couple of Country Club family NYE parties (for quite a few years). I do one from 5 - 8, with 300 people, countdown and balloon drop at 7:30 PM. It is so crowded AND there is hardly any room for dancing. I played super high energy up till midnight with ^ "I Love It" being one of the last 2013 songs :)

Fake-midnight, I did the countdown, then Auld Lang Syne, then Roar - because after those balloons drop, they kids just hoard them, and the action kind of stops - so the balloon capturing is crazy ... but we do have a blast every year, and I love being home after that.

The last time I DJed until actual midnight + was for a wedding a few years ago. (I've paid my NYE working in a bar dues, believe me!)

Many years ago, we were doing NYE parties for an association of Synagogues on Long Island. Not the most exciting gig in the world, but it paid well and was fertile ground for Bar/Bat Mitzvah referrals. So one year, after midnight, with many guests somewhat smashed, one table from one of the Synagogues vehemently objects that one of the other tables (who are from an all together different Synagogue) are drinking Bailey's Irish Creme and that it is not Kosher. The Bailey's drinking table not only disputes this, but takes offense at the allegation. After 3 mins of intense debate the fists & yamakas start flying. Things calmed down before the cops arrived and everyone put their offended ideology aside and acted like they didn't know why the Police were called.

Yeah, if a NYE party on Long Island with a room full of middle age and post middle age conservative & Orthodox Jews isn't safe, there's not much left other than kiddie parties, LMAO! -Z-

1) Maybe Bailey's isn't kosher ... but, it IS delicious.

2) ^ Actually, I'm pretty sure that a room full of righteousness is the way many a war has begun

3) "kiddie parties" are awesome, and the DJ is a rock star ;-)
