Zach Bibeault, a senior at Terra Linda High School, had the time of his life on September 19 at the 2015 Homecoming dance. Bibeault DJed the dance, and between the ten minute song sets on his playlist, he hopped off the stage to dance his heart out. This guy has energy and spunk, and it was his dream to make this the best dance that TL has ever seen, claiming, “It’s going to be awesome, I think it’s going to be off the chain.”
Q: So what did you think of the dance? How do you think it went?
A: I think it went like fantastic and legendary.
Q: What was your favorite part?
A: The dance itself.
Q: What was up with the technical difficulties?
A: You know we blacked out a couple of times, you know it wasn’t chillin’, but we were turning up hard and getting our groove on and, you know, when you party too hard, the lights go out.
Q: How did you start your DJ career?
A: I started thinking about DJing back in middle school. I see famous DJs – David Guetta, Armin van Buuren, Tiesto, and I still have a dream to later become a professional DJ someday. If I get let into the right path.
Q: Is that what you are aspiring to be?
A: Yeah, I’m pretty inspired to be a DJ someday.
Q: How much did you prepare for the dance?
A: I mentally prepared for this. I thought about it a lot, I envisioned my performance, and I’m just hoping that it comes out the way I dreamt it to be.
Q: So David Guetta is your favorite? Or are there any others?
A: Tiesto, is one of the best.
Q: What other gigs have you had?
A: I DJed at a couple parties and weddings.
Q:What is your favorite song right now?
A: If I were to pick a favorite song right now I would say “My Way” by Fetty Wap.
Q:Are you getting paid for this?
A: This is strictly volunteer, but I like the experience and Homecoming is a big event so I’m really honored to be a DJ for it.
Q: Where do you see yourself in five years with your DJing career?
A: I’m seeing myself in five years getting a job in the music industry, probably getting a job in the music business and working my way up to production and, you know, learning how to be a DJ and professionalizing it.
Q:Besides famous people, are there any other people who have inspired you to be a DJ, anyone who has backed you up though the journey?
A: My mom always cheers me on with whatever I do, she thought it would be a cool activity for me to do.
Q: What was your rating on the dance like out of ten? Was this the best performance you had?
A: I’d say it probably breaks the scale, it’s not even ten, it’s above ten, like 11 bajillion.
