RE: Keeping your sets interesting

Thousands of people every week dance to DJ's. They're more interested in the sound than the spectacle of someone on stage and frankly, so am I. 
If someone is wringing a passionate performance out of their instrument, that can be cool. I was lucky enough to see a wonderful performance from a sitar player in the back room of a clothes shop in Glastonbury last year. The guy spent about 5 minutes tuning his instrument then we all drifted into the most wonderful reverie. At the end he just smiled..
No showbiz razzmatazz just a shared musical journey. Equally I've thoroughly enjoyed DJ sets that just worked in that moment..
It's about the music isn't it? however it is presented..
