    Strategic Partnerships

    Hey crew, I need some advice regarding what I'm calling "Strategic Partners". In short, we don't offer services such as photo booths, we leave it to the professionals and we focus on DJ & lighting. But, we are looking to partner with a vendor that offer this and do a bit of "selling" for them on...

    Gear Rental In Puerto Vallarta

    Hey crew, I'm doing a wedding in Puerto Vallarta next March and looking for a place to rent gear. The last destination wedding I did in Hawaii (Oahu) I was able to find a local DJ company that was great and rented me all the gear I needed. But I can't seem to find anything in the Puerto...

    I Can't Dmx Obey 4 D-fi 2.4 With Slimpars

    Thanks Nick, I will check all of this. Although I don't have an ohmmeter I've tried a number of DMX cables with the same results. You ended with; "That's about all else I can think of besides having bad units." Though, isn't it possible that the Obey 4 simply isn't made to work with the SlimPar...

    I Can't Dmx Obey 4 D-fi 2.4 With Slimpars

    Nick, I really do appreciate your help with this. I know your putting a lot of time into trying to help me out. I confirmed everything you mentioned above (all U-- mode settings for R, G & B are set to "0" and all other modes are "--") yet still nothing working. The odd thing though is...

    I Can't Dmx Obey 4 D-fi 2.4 With Slimpars

    Thanks Nick, Not offended at all about your question. I read everything I can get my hands on. But you brought up something I hadn't heard before. My Chauvet SlimPars are RGB, not RGBA's. And maybe the Obey-4 doesn't work with 3-channel lights. But prior to buying, I confirmed with a number of...

    I Can't Dmx Obey 4 D-fi 2.4 With Slimpars

    Hey crew, I've scoured the internet and although there are MANY "how to" and "unboxing" videos on the Obey 4, the SlimPars and both together, I cannot find anywhere that tells me what the DMX channel should be for the SlimPars. Yes, I'm new to DMX so maybe there is something obvious I'm...

    How do you charge for out of state (Hawaii) wedding gig?

    I have a wedding colleague (a videographer) who we work with a bunch who asked me to DJ his sisters wedding in Hawaii. I know they will cover my accommodations but I'm wondering if I should charge them for the actual gig itself if they're paying for me to hang out in Hawaii for a few days? I...

    Are We Paying Our Sales Team Too Much?

    I want some opinions here on what you pay your consultants if you have them. We're paying our entertainment consultant (salesperson) $500 to $800 per week and I started wondering what you guys are paying your salespeople and how. Here is the formula we came up; Each meeting is 1 hour at a...

    Online contracts & E-Signatures?

    "What's Your Budget?" How are you charging for services?

    Thanks guys, Yes, I am providing all the gear. He is just DJ-ing. And in my examples I was saying let's assume it would be the same setup (no extra gear). I understand if there were extra gear, extra setup, extra load-in time, there should be extra pay. But that is not the case. PS> This is...
