    The evolution of the wedding dance playlist

    Great article Robert and thanks for shedding some light on the private event music trends. I also find myself playing more current hits and a lot less "oldies" unless I'm in a throwback set. As a DJ, you have to be able to read your crowd and know when it's the right time to slip in some of...

    Which Photobooth

    Atlanta Photo Booth I also have a photo booth from Steve Lynch and decided to put my extra touch to it by surrounding it with pipe and drape enclosure and throwing down a red carpet with rope and stanchions. It definitely gives it an elegant appeal and that has been very popular with brides...

    Does anyone know of a vendor that sells LED Digital dance floors here in the USA? I see that the majority of vendors are Chinese companies. With that in mind, who would you recommend as a reputable Chinese manufacturer?

    Is Video the saving grace for DJ's?

    I can't say there's much value in music video mixing for private events in my area. That being said, I have found a way to incorporate music video mixing into my "multimedia services" package and have found the clientele that appreciates the plasma video screens. Instead of trying to up sell...

    Music Pools

    Until I see a formal charge brought against 8thwonderpromos/videotoolz, I'm going to assume they're a legal source of downloads so we don't really need to get into all that controversy unless you have a legit resource that you can point me to. As for comparing the music pools, I don't see a...
