No, just hell no!

I have friends who live there, one was a doorman at Tao for 3 years. In his best year he pulled in close to 90k. Now that is mostly cash and he made plenty if connections, but 500k.....NO

You are very wrong. My neighbor works at Hakkasan. She does not make 100k.

Yep, about 3 minutes for me

It's insane the amount of money people waste at these clubs. But I never would have thought DJ's are making this type of scratch. Holy shite.

As far as the bouncers money. I worked as a bouncer at a top strip club in SF. You really can make bank. You get a good hourly rate and then you get tipped from everyone which most don't report. I know I was very surprised at what I made there. With these crazy high door prices at these clubs, I bet the bouncers are pulling in $100k-$200k. I don't know about this $500k stuff, but definitely over $100k.

And what makes a DJ good or bad?

I've been a DJ and dance music producer since the mid 90s and I say that 300k is ridiculous for anyone. I've heard of maybe DJs getting 20k a night, but 300??? I wouldn't even pay the hottest singer that to perform anywhere. WTF

Man, I really need to sell out to Top40. Cash out, buy a fricking island and get away from everything.

That's my plan now after seeing this article.

How much do the 80's night DJs make out there? I think I've get an extended version of Pump Up the Volume somewhere around here I can dig out.

The voice.
Reading ability.
Annunciatating correctly.

Very few club DJs have any of the above qualities, which is why they aren't in broadcasting. They understand the dynamics of the board and how to mix music. These aren't skills that translate well to broadcasting, especially in major or unionized markets.

FTE there? (to the guy with the neighbor) I talked to a waitress from ______ (name slips me) last year that was smoking hot and said they all clear 100k from tips and bribes. A lot is cash so it ends up being more than a salary should be. That's saying they don't blow it all at the same clubs when they're off duty.

Also everyone is missing the word "can" make 500k+. Gotta be doorman at right club during right time.

This 300 grand a night stuff is new and is a result of the pissing match between Steve Wynn and the guy that owns all the Hakkasan restaurants worldwide. He showed u to Encore one night, someone was already staying in his preferred room, he wanted them to move the other guest and they refused, so he decided to throw 100 million into a club at the MGM to take business away from the clubs at the Wynn.

Calvin Harris, Tiesto, Steve Aoki all play at Tryst and the clubs at Encore too, and they're all benefitting from the pissing match by getting ridiculous money to do it. The clubs are losing money just trying to suck business from each other.

at everyone thinking calvin Harris FTJ is a DJ.

he spends 95%of his time writing music and 5% of his time actually playing. And he gets paid to DJ because his tracks are all badass.

How is going to watch an LSU game at Tiger Stadium different than watching a game at U high?

I guess I don't get it. It's way different than a band IMO, but whatever.
