Dionysus Media and Events Strategist, Professional Violinist and DJ
: Best event you’ve ever been to?
Michael Liu: Geez, that’s a tough one to ask an events manager! Dragon Dreaming Festival would have to be up there. Great music, company, and vibes.
: If you could perform with any band or musician, who would it be?
ML: It would have to be the Bee Gees, or Billy Joel. For me, they’re the epitome of consummate performers.
: Favourite arts festival in the world?
ML: I haven’t been to that many! Is it biased if I say Art, Not Apart? It’s such a great day in Canberra and brings artists from all colours and creeds together.
: If you could choose any three people in the world to co-host a party with, who would they be?
ML: Andrew Lloyd Webber, Andy Warhol, and Dave Caffery (of course).
: Favourite album of all time?
ML: As a complete album, probably Woodface by Crowded House.
: Favourite cocktail?
ML: Love a dirty martini. Otherwise scotch and coke will suit me just fine.
: Who (living or dead) is you favourite violinist?
ML: Nigel Kennedy. Just an absolute bad-ass iconoclast.
: Best costume you ever wore to a dress up?
ML: I’ve worn a lot of costumes but I don’t know if they’re ever any good! I just dressed up as Aladdin to DJ a Disney-themed wedding - does that count?
: Any hidden talents?
ML: I’m amazing at training puppies to be super disobedient. I also know every word to the musical Les Mis. Go figure.
: What song automatically gets you on the dance floor?
ML: Anything from So Fresh 1999 to 2004, or a good disco classic like Boogie Wonderland.
