AS THE Grafton District Services Club gears up for a relaunch aimed at its youth members on August 11 with chart-dominating outfit Bombs Away, veteran entertainment promoter John Logan is looking for local DJs to help the club define the new era.

"Specifically we are on the hunt for local DJs and local organisations to be a part of the Saturday night entertainment," Mr Logan said.

"One of the mistakes that has been made in the past has been that venues (and ourselves included) just use out-of-town talent and while this is one avenue of promotion, the locals often miss out.

"Local DJs have a following, they make up the week-to-week fabric of the town's night spots, they break new music and are generally very important to a venue.

"Artists must be able to hold a beat, have a good working knowledge of popular music, remixes and trends, as well as sub-genres such as dub step."

"Obviously we can't take bed- room DJs or absolute beginners," Mr Logan said.

Mr Logan also wants to hear from community groups and organisations who want to raise money for their group.

"If you are committed to your group and active in the local community we want to hear from you," he said.

"The new program will include regular nights where local groups will be invited to be part of the fun. This will add fun, colour and atmosphere with regular planned theme nights."

They can contact John Logan on jlent@tpg.com.au or call 6652 8266 in business hours.
