Favourite Newfoundland Music

Since TheDJs.ca have been DJing (over 10 years), there have been very few venues and events around Corner Brook, Newfoundland where someone hasn’t stopped up and asked for a Newfoundland song.  Newfoundland music is popular throughout the area and and any good DJ should have some of the fan favourites in their playlist ready to go at a moments notice.

When there’s a mixed group of people attending an event, playing Eddie Coffey’s “Grey Foggy Day” is sure to pack the floor with the older couples.  You will even see some of the younger ones on the floor, enjoying this Newfoundland two-step that has a playing time of just over five minutes.

For those DJing with a younger crowd, you can never fail with Great Big Sea’s “The Night Paddy Murphy Died”, The Fables “Heave Away” or Ray Lake’s “There’s Gonna Be a Time Tonight”.  These up-beat songs are sure to get all ages on the floor and are proven crowd pleasers that any DJ should have.

It is also important that a professional DJ have a great Newfoundland jig at their ready.  One of the favourites around Corner Brook is Buggs Greene’s “Barney’s Reel”.  It has never failed TheDJs.ca as one to get the toes tapping and the people moving.

While some event organizers will ask you to not play Newfoundland music, most professional DJs find they are asked at sometime throughout the night as the alcohol flows freely to pop on a local favourite.

Being prepared is what separates a good DJ from a great DJ.
