Tips For A Bride-Friendly DJ Setup

January 11, 2017 by Mixcity Inc JammText
When it comes to the planning the details of their big day, most brides are exceptionally meticulous.  The dinner napkins are the perfect shade of purple, the centerpieces are correctly proportionate with the size of the tables, cleverly worded signs and placed in all the right places, and even the guest seating cards have just the right font to match the feeling of the day.  Then, the DJ arrives and erects a massive dusty speaker wall, cranks a 15 ft truss of spin and puke lights into the air, and weaves a spaghetti-like nest of orange cables across the floor.  No matter how skilled the DJ is, or how great the other reception details look, the bride (and her guests) are only going to remember how horrible and tacky the DJ looked.  The reception pictures will be ruined, the bride will be crying in the cor...

December 13, 2016 by Mixcity Inc JammText
DJ on couch Just like everything in life, DJing goes through seasons. One month you’re spinning 5 nights a week, and the next you’re sitting at home on the couch binge watching “The Get Down” on Netflix.

Getting Started Video DJing

September 14, 2016 by Mixcity Inc JammText

However, as a VJ (video jockey), you have the advantage of tapping into your audience’s visual senses as well as auditory. This extra dimension can definitely take your sets to the next level, but you’ll need to do some research and pre-planning before you get behind the decks at your first video DJing gig.
