Backstage at clubbing parties?.

By Posted in - Action & Personal & Portfolio on June 26th, 2015 Backstage at La Leche

Oh, how I wish I could walk around in a dance club with a press card on my chest! Until now I only made pictures with my little SONY Cyber shot DSC-RX100 camera or most of the time with my SAMSUNG Note 3 mobile phone.

Wouldn’t it be great to walk around with a big camera with flash light and that I could go everywhere. EVERYWHERE! Meeting the DJ’s, the artists. Taking pictures from the gogo dancers backstage.

In 1983 was my first holiday to Ibiza. Harry and I did not go to dance parties at that time. That started 12 years later with our friends Jan and Ron, going to the iT Amsterdam first and later to La Demence Brussels and Red & Blue Antwerp. We went to parties like Salvation, Rapido and Funhouse, Milkshake or Wasteland. A few years later we started clubbing on holidays. On Ibiza we have been to Manumission. We saw La Troya going from Amnesia, to Space and back to Amnesia and this season going from the Wednesday night to the Sunday night, right after Matinee on Saturday. We saw Club KU changing their name to Privilege. We saw DC10 closing and opening again. In 2004 Harry and I married at Club Las Palmas, now the restaurant of Herman de Blijker, and in this club we saw David Guetta playing for a little Betty Ford Clinic-audience. And in all those years I took pictures with my mobile phone. Thousands of pictures are in my database.

But I am getting close. We found our way to be always on the Guestlist. And if we are not on the Guestlist, we are not going! I tweet about the clubbing parties and tag the clubs, the DJ’s and artists like Nalaya and they are all retweeting me or sending sweet private messages. So it has to happen this Summer!

“How to get on the Guestlist” and “Stalking the DJs and artist” in a later post.

    Hoi Gertjan,

    bijzonder te lezen dat iemands ‘partybiografie’ een beetje parallel loopt met die van mij :). Dat hoor je niet elke dag!
    Na mijn coming out ging ik ook midden jaren negentig (twintig jaar oud) regelmatig naar onder meer de It en de Roxy. Het roze lidmaatschapspasje heb ik nog steeds. Vanaf 2007 een nieuwe partytijd met onder meer La Demence, Rapido en Villa Achterwerk (bij dat laatste feest -de ‘hot years’ in Rotterdam- hebben we met elkaar kennisgemaakt en daarna een portfolio gemaakt bij jou in de buurt). En een paar keer Ibiza vanaf 2004, wel uiteraard minder vaak en uitgebreid dan jij. Ik kan me nog een leuke Pacha-avond herinneren met een toen nog niet zo bekende David Guetta in de Pacha, zijn dansvloer was toen nog bijna leeg! Je blog sprak me dus erg aan; nostalgie en zin in de zomer :). Veel plezier komend seizoen daar! Groet, Rob
