Be Your Own Tailgating Dee Jay

Posted by Dave On November - 29 - 2007

ipod.jpgBooking a professional Dee Jay spinning on the ones and twos at your next tailgate party would kick ass but most of us can’t afford that. In the old days, playing your favorite music meant you would burn a CD of your jams and then play it on your car stereo. Now with the new technology of iPods, Zunes and other MP3 players, playing good tailgating music is fairly easy. But what types of music go well with the overall tailgating atmosphere? Well, you are in luck because we were recently contacted by Alex “RaiderHater” Chavez, a die hard San Francisco 49ers fan and an avid tailgater. He suggested a selection of tunes to play at your next tailgate and we were happy to share.

Alex “RaiderHater” Chavez is an active member of the Club49.org online community and suggested a wide variety of music that would kick start any tailgate party. His exhaustive research covers all genres and styles of music to fit anyone’s tastes. Paying close attention to many different music styles, Alex came up with a few top ten play lists chosen specifically with tailgating in mind. With all the great music out there to choose from you know it was difficult to narrow the lists down to just 10. Feel free to check out Alex’s suggestions and if you think you can come up with a better play list, tell us about it.

    Awesome brotha..

    I wrote this a while back. Now that I think about it, I’d probably update the Hip Hop, R&B and Down South Playlist…. But the current list is not that bad….
