What is IRON DJ?

We hosted our first official IRON DJ match up at The Barbary on Sunday 6/29/14. This month’s secret ingredient was DISTANCE.

After the flip of a coin, DJ Image chose to go first against veteran Iron DJ Flufftronix. The DJs had 15 minutes to compose 30 minute sets with songs that ranged from The Proclaimers¬† ‘I would walk 500 miles” to Nine Inch Nails ‘Closer”.

After a fierce battle, the judges ruled that our first round winner was DJ Image.

HUGE thanks to everyone that came out and helped make Iron DJ season 3 happen this year.
