    The NEW Hercules RMX 2 is Coming, The NEW Hercules RMX 2 is Coming!!!!

    I have an RMX for ceremonies too and am pretty happy with it except for the mic talkover feature, would rather just have a switch and gain control. Sound card quality is not as good as I get using my gigaports. I hope they addressed these things in the RMX2.

    Alphaville Forever Young in German

    Have a request for this one. I cannot find this in German anywhere. Seems to me that a German band would have released this song in their native language. I am not sure whether this even exists. Can anyone help?

    DJ'ing Daughter's Wedding Reception ???

    Each person needs to evaluate their own particular situation and decide accordingly. Having said that up front... When my oldest son told me he was getting married, he initally told me that they didn't want me to be their DJ, so I could enjoy the reception as a parent. The Bride's sister was...

    Controlling an unruly crowd

    Diana makes a good point. Whenever possible, I create a "focal point" (usually the center of the Dance floor) when I do my preamble (auduence "warm-up).
