Why You Should Add Monogram Lighting to Your Packages

February 10, 2017 by Jason Rubio
If you're a DJ, or even an event lighting company, then chances are, you've been asked by your clients about a monogram light, or "gobo light" as some of us call it. These lights are a great addition to any package. They can be used for just about any event, but we've mainly seen them used for weddings, quinceaneras, sweet 15s and 16s, and company parties. Adding a monogram light is the perfect way to give your clients that personal touch. Today's couples are all about doing things that are unique. Having a monogram light that allows a couple to add their names or initials, as well as the date, makes it more personal. If you're providing it for a quinceanera, sweet 15 or 16, or birthday party, the guest of honor can have his/her initials or name, and the date, created, just the way they want it, which give...

Sunlight: Party Killer or Money Maker

January 17, 2017 by Randy Lehrman
Ever dreaded the idea of a day party???  People draggin' at that 12 noon Bar-Mitzvah; 1000 windows in the room, streaming in sunlight, and you're working your butt off to get people up...Why?  Sunlight. Proven by science, people are less likely to dance or lose their inhibitions in the daytime, sometimes turning a party into a luncheon. Mobile DJs want to CREATE A PARTY!  Not have a bunch of people staring out a window at the duck filled pond.  I've figured out the solution...and you can make money off of it. If your clients DO pick a daytime venue with windows (especially for a Bar/Bat-Mitzvah) and they want a dance party but LOVE their outside view, you can do a few things do make everyone happy and your wallet a little thicker. #1. Black out the windows.  Lose the sunlight in the room.  I... [read more]
