I get compared to Blue Man Group a lot. Sometimes, I try to think of what I can do to make my live show more dynamic like Blue Man Group. But then I started thinking, “what if Blue Man Group were DJs?”
Well, I know on their music tour; they traveled with a DJ, Mike Relm. The key to that, visuals. Check the video:
But there needs to be more. Blue Man Group uses a lot of props. So, they can’t just be stuck behind the decks all night. They need to come out and do something really cool. One guy who’s doing something like this already is RJD2. Look at this video when he puts on a spinning MPC harness.
So they are combining visuals, props, creativity…but what else? Maybe they could add 3d visuals to their show. I’ve never seen DJs do that, but I can imagine Blue Man Group giving everyone 3d glasses before their DJ set. Check out this band, Club of the Sons; who are already using 3d visuals at their live show.
Or maybe should just use very colorful visuals and project them on top of themselves! I have seen some bands do that to varying degrees of success. It would be a great addition to some slammin’ tracks. Would Blue Man have to wear all white though? Check out this band, Macrosick.
Whatever they did; I’m sure it would be pretty unique! I’m going to have to brainstorm some more ideas on what they might do as DJs so that I can know what I might do to be just as dynamic & interesting! Look at this!
