DJ:-Sharon Koch plus guest DJ sets for most Milongas
We have a TTVTTM set up, with no cortinas. Sympathetic orchestras are played next to each other to promote the flow in your dance, nice surprises, but no shocks of jumping from one era to another or opposite styles of tango placed next to each other.
From April 2012 onwards we have had guest DJs from our group taking over the music for a while during the evening. This is developing fantastically well and in time some of them will take on more than ‘just’ a guest set!
We are still mostly  Traditional tango, both early and Golden Age,  probably now about 98% – just the occasional ‘Special’ in some of the Milongas.
