    New Persian Music

    I see a few posts on Persian music - that's helpful! It's been a few years, however - anything new that's popular on that front? Thanks!

    Programming For Special Ed

    Hello fellow entertainers! I've have a 'dance party' that I'm DJing in a few weeks, and I'm hoping to get some new programming ideas. This is the second year that I've done this group's party. The guests will be about 30 special-ed adults (ages 16 through 50). Though a few have are on the...

    Bridal/fashion Show Tunes

    Hey guys - I'm the DJ/MC for an upcoming show. Finding good music for the broader show, is not too difficult, but I'm looking for some new tunes to spruce up the fashion show. That's guys and gals strutting down the catwalk wearing the newest fashions for the pre-bride viewing audience. I'll...

    New Games To Freshen-up Events

    I periodically DJ events for groups of college students (incoming freshmen and first year students, generally). Groups can be anywhere from 30-130. The events are ultimately outdoor picnics (college provides food), then the kids and I have time to play some games. Sometimes I'm lucky to have...

    Gemini 5200 'illegal'?

    Just checking... My Gemini dual 5200M (operates between 668MHz and 698MHz) is now illegal? Will become illegal? From what I've read, it looks like I should be replacing this microphone.

    Never Bought Microphone Stands Before...

    This seems like such a simpl piece of equipment, but I've never had one in my arsenal. Next weekend I have a bride who's requested I use a handheld microphone/stand to provide sound support for the officiant/bride/groom during their outdoor wedding ceremony. The same ceremony, I'm providing a...

    Wired Microphone For Ceremony

    Looking for one or more wired microphones to help with amplifying musicians at wedding ceremonies and also to support audio from officiant, bride and groom. I've not had great success with wireless liv mics at ceremonies, and I'm not convinced it's in my budget to replace what I currently have...

    Your Guardian Angel - Instrumental Version

    I have heard a bunch of instrumental and/or karaoke versions of this song, by Red Jumpsuit Apparatus. My client is looking for a piano or acoustic guitar version that would be appropriate for her wedding ceremony - what's your favorite? And if you wouldn't mind, where can I find it so I may...

    Micing The Ceremony

    I use a single wireless lapel-clipped microphone (on officiant) when my brides want the ceremony broadcast over my speakers. Once in a blue moon I have clients who also want their (bride and groom) voices broadcast as well. I'm not interested in putting a wireless device in them. These...

    Speaker Placement For Ceremony

    Hello! We offer sound support for wedding ceremonies, and I know many of you do. I use an audio technical AT3000 series wireless receiver with a bodypack/lavalier on the officiant. I don't like to put my speakers on stands for ceremonies because I think they do a good enough job on the...

    Need A New Microphone!

    I've been using an AudioTechnica 3000 series handheld microphone for about 6 years, and I love it - never had a problem with it. Purchased the belt pack and lavalier microphone for it about 4 years ago, and have rarely ever used it (the wireless belt pack, that is) without problems. I'm a...

    What New Fixture(s)?

    Hello All! I'm replacing my old ADJ LED Starballs, and would like some input. I use a Chauvet 4Bar Tri for color wash and two Chauvet Intimidator Scan 300's (LED) for some effects. I liked the starballs because in my opinion they provided a nice 'romantic' effect for slower dance songs, and...

    Syncing Libraries Between Macs

    It's been so long since I've stepped foot in this forum, I feel a little guilty... I DJ with two macbook pros (one master, one backup) - both running Yosemite. Each computer uses iTunes as the music library manager. I find the iTunes playlist manager much more GUI friendly and simple to use...

    Maximizing On-computer-screen Karaoke Video

    There must be a simple solution for this, but I can't seem to find it. I was playing music at a function using VDJ using my macbook pro - and I always have a second one running just in case.... A gentleman came to me to consider singing a song (karaoke), so I pulled up a tune and slid it into...

    Vdj 8.0 Slideshow For Monogram

    In order to use the built-in Slideshow plugin to display a single image (monogram) in VDJ 8.0, you have to point VDJ to a directory containing the image files for display. In this particular example, there's only one image in the directory. In VDJ 8 (I'm using a Macbook Pro running OSX), I...

    New Wireless Microphone

    WOW - it's been too long since I've been on this site. I like the look and new search functionality! I have an Audio Technica 3000 series microphone receiver. I use the hand held as my main mic (love it), and periodically use the lav mic for wedding ceremonies. I've never liked the lav mic...

    My T-Bar is too heavy - or am I getting old...

    I use two T-bars for my light shows, and one of them, once loaded, is just getting too heavy for me to lift up and tighten in place. On it are two Chauvet LED Scan 300s, two DMX star balls, and periodically a lightweight projector. Maybe I'm getting old, but I'm just tired of hoisting this...

    Need help with day-time wedding reception

    We've never worked a day-time wedding reception (2:30 - 6:30). No dinner - only hors d'oeuvres. Guests come in around 2:30, grand entrance at 3, toasts, cake, formal dances… and a bouquet toss - that's the formalities. So I'm certain there's a lot of expertise out there - can you give me...

    Entertaining College Kids

    I've got a one hour block of time to entertain some college kids during a relay for life event. The event is indoors in a gymnasium. Last year there were probably about 50 kids or so, but most were pretty tired and were simply sitting near their booths. I did some line dancing and games...
