When people say anyone can be a successful DJ like that, I usually say that is the same thing as saying anyone can be a top pro golfer.

And I have played golf my entire life.

Its not like those guys do nothing. They make the clubs a hit. Not a single employee at those clubs makes less than 100k a year. The bouncers can make 500k+.


Ya....this just is not true.


Which part? The 500k in cash? I have heard that several times.

Sources have been telling me that doormen at several clubs are clearing $8,000 to $10,000 a night before they share tips. So much cash is pouring in that some doormen are making $400,000 to $500,000 a year, several nightclub executives told me.
"Pure has guys at the door making more than the president," said one executive with intimate knowledge of the cover-charge system. He was referring to the annual salary of the president of the United States, which is $400,000, plus benefits.

Isn't Calvin Harris producing mega smash hits for people like Rihanna and Usher? That's how he's making major money.

Calvin Harris plays at concerts and sells music. 46mil is definitely not his dj salary, sorry guys


Yeah but the article said he gets 300,000 per night at the club and has a contract with them .if he plays twice a week then that's 30 mil a year right there.

Its usually once or twice a month I think with most of those people. It generates more demand. Over-saturation kills the crowd steadily.
