    Thanks CORONA....2 events cancelled in the last week

    :( I had a dance scheduled 3 weeks from now at a local school. Yesterday, the PTO said as advised by the school nurse, canceled the dance and no reschedule.

    Hardly any bookings for Christmas parties....

    Once people see me, it isn't an issue. New perspective clients are harder to convince in a sea of dj's. I have had customers change dates to accommodate me :) and repeat customers for holiday parties for years.

    Thanks for the feedback everyone. DJ Steve...I brought some Ice Breaker games that I have used at other Mitzvahs, and I also asked the b-day girl if she wanted me to each some party dances. I told the parents ahead of time as well that I could do this, but no one was interested. :(

    Hardly any bookings for Christmas parties....

    I am really sad about the fact that since I have been in business, this is the slowest December I have ever, and I mean EVER had. I don't get it. I am advertising with a new company too. The biz is changing, and I don't know what to think anymore. :(Anyone else feeling it as well???

    You want what????

    Many times I have had people come to an event, but the problem with that is they have the mind set of you doing that event, and not being pliable to do theirs. Like Ausumm said, no two jobs are alike. Never had anyone ask for a sample. If you are a house.EDM at a club and mix your own I could...

    You want what????

    Just quoted a job, and the customer got back and asked me "do you have sample playlists". I have not posted here in a while, and at the same time was surprised...Just curious 1) do most of you provide them? 2) do most still get asked this question? I sent her what I thought was a great response...
