    When things go beyond tacky.

    Interesting read. Since I am in the process of planning my own wedding, my fiance and I have been having some discussion about this. Since we are paying for the wedding ourselves, we will be doing a mix of things. We are providing the beer, soda, water, but the other drinks will be cash. We...

    Jodi Started It...

    Well, for those of us who live in the midwest, flashing hazard lights are normally used to indicated a slow moving or stopped vehicle. Most farm equipment doesn't travel faster then 20 mph. Actually it is illegal if you don't have your hazards on in that case. Semi Trailers use them all the...

    DJ Manager Vs. Gig Builder

    I only have experience with gigbuilder, since it is free with my listings. It can do a lot more then I use it for, but I love the planning worksheets, and the client interface. It saves me a lot of back and forth with the client.

    RV Nuccio and Associates Insurance

    Of course, the other side of the question is, what kind of issues will you really have that you will need an immediate response from your DJ insurance company? If you are a single op, playing at a wedding, in reality, what can't wait until Monday? Now if you're running a all out event...

    Trump National Golf Club - Rancho Palos Verdes CA...

    Agreed! DJ's like the ones that have to place a sign on their gear highlighting that they are a "professional" DJ service. I'm sorry, but I feel that by putting up a sign on your setup, you're contradicting your statement.

    Lose the puke voice

    There is a time and a place for everything. But that puke voice really doesn't work. Also, there is such a thing as knowing when to not say anything. If the crowd is already hyped up, you don't need to yell at them to keep them hyped - just play the darn music and get off the mic! It can...

    Catering Staff Faux Pas?

    Rude! I can do one better. I have had gigs where the workers pretty much shut off the lights, walked out, and locked up with the guests, leaving us standing there in the dark.

    When do you get paid?

    Set dollar amount for the deposit, and balance due 14 days before. I have been burned before, never again.

    I absolutely Hate scrims and speaker stand covers!

    Ok, All audio gear is UGLY! No matter what you do, you can't make it look pretty. You can match colors, you can skirt it, you can do any multitude of things, but overall, its UGLY. Therefore, in my opinion, the idea of at least trying to make it look better then it does, or hiding it, is the...

    Local DJ Associations, worth it?

    National Association or not - It all depends on the participation at the local level. I belong to the ADJA, but not because of some benefit I get at the national level, but because our local chapter is great. Yes, we would love to have more members, and we will get there, but in the meantime...

    Too Blunt???

    I get price shoppers all the time. I often reply in the same blunt manner that they ask. It usually goes something like this: "Hello, Since I have no other information to go on, besides a date for your reception, my price for the evening and all the preparation leading up to it will be...

    Dumb Things Prospects Say

    Had a crowded floor at a reception last year - playing motown and 80's. A guest kept coming up, wanting me to play something different, because all the crowd was doing was dancing in a circle, with various people going into the middle..... I calmly asked him what shape he thought they should...

    I wish I could DJ for me. (aka. Self flattery much?)

    Looking at houses with the fiance, and one of my requirements is the proximity of the neighbors. I plan to "play it loud" every chance I get.... Right now I am in a second floor apartment. Only 5 other people in the building, so occasionally there are times when no one else is home...
