00:01:35.400 --> 00:01:44.550

Shane Summers: I pulled my dad over to the side it had been a what's called career day at my high school and they had this DJ come in and like you know saying do a little set.


00:01:44.880 --> 00:01:53.310

Shane Summers: And he brought in this stuff I remember looking at him bringing in this stuff you know i'm saying, and you know messing with is setting it all up and then finally getting on the decks and like just going crazy.


00:01:53.490 --> 00:02:05.460

Shane Summers: And they had the kids and they're going crazy on career day I was like I was is anything i'm super i'm expecting like lawyers, you know i'm saying doctors not I brought a DJ in there and I was like okay Okay, so I brought my dad.


00:02:06.120 --> 00:02:10.140

Shane Summers: went home and I pulled my dad over to the side, and I was like dad I was like look i'm.


00:02:10.500 --> 00:02:22.050

Shane Summers: I just thought is DJ kill it at school, right now, you know i'm saying what can I do to get a deck or you know something like that you know, so I can get in here and start you know saying really turning these tables out here and.


00:02:23.010 --> 00:02:29.850

Shane Summers: He honestly my dad wasn't very supportive at the start of it, he was like nah and they know because my dad was a DJ in high school.


00:02:30.330 --> 00:02:37.800

Shane Summers: as well, he was a DJ college and high school, so I mean he knew the entire world, he knew what it was i'm saying, but he was like man really knows a little bit to learn.


00:02:38.040 --> 00:02:45.090

Shane Summers: A lot of buttons yeah i'm saying uh you know I don't really know if you don't do it right, so I kind of kind of put it down, you know i'm saying, but it wasn't up until.


00:02:46.260 --> 00:02:51.000

Shane Summers: When I was in the hospital and I was like watching all these videos at like.


00:02:51.630 --> 00:03:02.130

Shane Summers: With really, really big celebrity DJ is like Steve aoki Martin Guerre ax T, so I mean and watching I would I would go on YouTube and watch their sessions like they're they're live sessions at like.


00:03:02.460 --> 00:03:11.610

Shane Summers: Also festival there or a Wonderland or you know i'm saying all these big music festival, and I was like dang this looks really, really fine um.


00:03:12.270 --> 00:03:23.580

Shane Summers: So that's kind of where it came from you know i'm saying wanting to mix music and wanting to just kind of engage in that entire community know what that feeling is like and i'm saying to be planning to those mass crowds I was always a really big one.


00:03:24.780 --> 00:03:28.320

Shane Summers: So pretty much that um and that's where it all started yeah.


00:03:28.710 --> 00:03:35.640

Darrel Frater, TheClub CEO: yeah that's a very exciting man you saw the DJ at the career day and you just hit a light bulb that that just sparked and.


00:03:35.850 --> 00:03:43.770

Darrel Frater, TheClub CEO: You just went from there you hit the ground running man I think that's super inspiring because you know a lot of people are inspired in different ways, but when you saw it in.


00:03:43.980 --> 00:03:54.270

Darrel Frater, TheClub CEO: Not a party or an event and just seeing it as you know, something that people do and and have fun with it, you saw it from a career aspect from the very beginning.


00:03:54.660 --> 00:04:05.220

Darrel Frater, TheClub CEO: That changes your mindset from the intro that you get into the industry and you're thinking about it as a career, not just as a hobbyist so the way that you got in really is going to play a big part.
