Between my busy schedule and Al's hectic one, we met yesterday at the vibey Newscafe Sandton to do the trade.

As I finished my yummy peanut and banana smoothly, Al Your Pal rocked up, almost as excited as I was.

Al started DJing at a very early age. At boarding school he used to read the Top 40 magazine and check out all the DJ decks for sale at the back of the magazine, and at the age of 16 he had his first deck. Little did he know at that time that one day he'd be meeting a girl known as the "matchstick girl" (yes- I seem to have collected that nickname somehow!) to trade a gig for a balloon!

So besides being such a hip DJ, who's DJ'd for celebrities and joined Bono walking around Alexandra, Al is also a down-to-earth guy who enjoys a glass of coca cola occasionally. He's also a bit of an adrenalin junkie, and frequently rides his super bike, jumps out of perfectly serviceable planes with a parachute on his back, and even goes to depths to scuba dive. Hence an adventure in a hot air balloon is just up his alley- and he's about to surprise a certain special somebody with this flight and breakfast. But well have to wait to hear more about that- I don't want to spoil the surprise.

DJ Al and Telana

So: I traded the balloon flight with champagne breakfast with DJ "Al Your Pal" for a party! And not just any kind of party. It'll be the party of the century! And here are the details of my next item up for trade:

1 x Party of the Century for up to 150 people, where DJ "Al Your Pal" from 084Extreme will be pumping the music and ripping up the decks to ensure your party not only rocks, but is the talk of the town for years to come!

You just need to add the bunch of cool people and the funky venue and drinks!

Possible parties could be:
  • Birthday parties
  • House parties
  • Corporate events or product launches
  • Weddings or engagement parties
  • Team buildings
  • Karaoke evenings
  • Theme parties
  • Singles parties
  • Fundraiser parties
  • Any excuse for a party parties
  • Etc.

Al's DJ company 084Extreme has been pumping music for 15 years, and comes highly recommended (references available upon request!).

Party with DJ Al

What's included:
DJ Al Your Pal, with all the necessary sound equipment to successfully keep your party rocking!

What's excluded- and you get to choose and add these key ingredients:

  • Funky people (up to 150)
  • Vibey Venue
  • Sustenance (that's all the food and drinks you'll need to keep up the energy to match DJ Al's music!)

Music – You get to choose what genre of music you want- Al knows allllllll genres, and is a fan of all music (although his personal favourite if he absolutely had to choose – which I made him do in the moment - is alternative!)

Date is subject to availability, and Gauteng area only:
The date of the party will be at a time that DJ Al is available, as he is personally going to be DJ'ing this event! So the party has to happen in Gauteng too. If you are keen, check with me if the date you want your party to be on is available, and make me your offer! The party will need to be within 6 months from the day of trading for the party (but if you want your party 6 months and 2 days after trade date- I am sure I'll be able to negotiate with Al ;0) )

So, who wants to PARTYYYY? Just send me your offer (via onematchstick@gmail.com or sms 0837302979 or via facebook) of what you'd trade for the Party of the Century with DJ Al for 150 people, and let's see what happens!
