Like the set-up, only thing i can suggest is that instead up just letting the cable kinda dangle from the speaker the way it is, is to run it up one of the legs of the stand and then up the neck of it to your speaker, eather wrap it 2 or 3 times or get some black velcro straps and velcro it. Will look a lot better and will also take some of the stress off of the cable at the connector and stress of off the connect to the speaker itself. Now if for some reason your cable isn't taped down and some one trips over it, less chance of breaking something.

They look like mpro's to me...the JBL logo is a dead giveaway and the horn design seems the same.

How many people? and any subs?
 
I would also agree to tape all of your cords to the poles or truss instead of having them dangle. Looks nice.

I only see 2 things with the playlist that I question. At 7:39 you played 2 70s song mixes. Were they requested, and what type of response did you get? Did the kids know the songs? I might of tried to stick with newer songs such as "Let's Get It Started", and make sure you get "The Cha Cha Slide" by Mr C. I also have had great luck with "Mickey" from Toni Basil. It is an 80s song. Lots of crowd singing and interaction. I have all of my playlists on my main computer at home, but here is one that I had from 3 weeks ago for a middle school dance. A couple of the songs I edited the intros down by removing the talking, or edited down questionable song sections.

It looks like you have a pretty nice setup.

Why did you play My Prerogative and Get Low twice. Did the students request them?

Hey Brett,

I've been trying to buy that Jackson/Whiz Kid remix of the Cha Cha Slide for over a year now. I send numerous emails to the guy who makes them, and nothing. How can I buy that remix?
 
I do not know now. I had heard that he put out another CD, but I have not been able to reach him for about 4 months now. I do not think you can buy it anywhere but from him.

hey,
Thanks for all your comments! Yes, the JBLs were Mpros. They worked out well and we had a sub but it for some reason wasn't working well so ended up not using it. There was still plenty of volume because the gym was smaller than normal. There weren't that many people I'd guess around 100. I'll make sure to clean up the speaker wires better next time.

Played Get Low and My Prerogative twice because a lot of people came late and wanted to hear it again. Lean Back was also requested a lot. The response to the disco was actually pretty positive. I was sort of surprised but it seemed like they knew the songs and danced to it more than some of the more modern ones. I would have played cha cha slide but kept getting requests for other songs and ran out of time. Also surprisingly, one of the most popular songs was the second to last, the Macarena.

Also wanted to add a couple things...
10/15/04 8:06 PM Beautiful/India Arie | Acoustic Soul | 2001 |
10/15/04 8:07 PM 11 A Moment Like This (New Mix) /Kelly Clarkson | | |
10/15/04 8:11 PM Don't Know Why/Norah Jones | First Sessions | 2001 |

Those three songs were used for the homecoming court introductions and the homecoming dance. It was my first time with the intel scanners (Omega IIs) so I used them as a spotlight, it looked really nice.

Also, another requested song that people liked was "Waiting" by Greenday.

Was this a Middle School dance??? You mentioned that it was, but you also mentioned homecoming. I can’t remember doing a homecoming when I was in Junior High.

If it was a Middle School dance, did you have any problems playing some of the more questionable songs??

10/15/04 6:54 PM Naughty Girl (Remix)/Beyonce ft. lil Flip
10/15/04 7:15 PM Tipsy Clean/J-Kwon
10/15/04 7:45 PM Milkshake/Kelis

Love to know if others are playing these without any problems... I know that the kids would love them, not too sure about the teachers, principles, and parents.

Yup; Middle School Homecoming. The school does a high school homecoming and a middle school homecoming. Although the homecoming one is much less formal. I had no problems playing any of those songs. Milkshake may have been borderline but no one complained.

Just found out i'm doing another gig for this school... 'winter wonderland' for the freshman... this time i'm bringing in a couple more speakers, more lights (got some brand new moving heads), and a projector system (purchased Wirecast...a great program). Whatever i did last time must have worked if they called me again! Thanks for all the comments, they're really appreciated...anything else you guys can think of?

Looks good :)

A lot of older disco songs are great for kids this age, I have a lot of success with them in fact! Everyone knows these songs, regardless, because they aren't "brand new" nor are they in a genre that people choose not to listen to. They're also great dancing songs, a lot of the newer ones are difficult do dance to in comparison to these older classics :)
