Friday night you're in a club and you find yourself in the room where the energy is low, music is lifeless and so is the DJ crouched behind his laptop stiffly punching buttons. You notice the crowd is migrating to another room, the big room where John Beaver is playing, so you go along. Within moments you're dancing with a stranger you've never met, singing and chanting with the crowd amongst you, the DJ is grinning from ear to ear handing out CDs like a rock star. You kick back for a moment and realize this was the "night out" you've been longing for months and that DJ John Beaver gave it all for you tonight . . . (cont)
