Say Cheese!

September 14, 2017 by Trevor West
Getting your crowd to have fun in your photobooth can sometimes take alot of work, but thankfully most times it doesn't. But if you don't look like you're having fun running the booth, do you think your clients are going to have as much or more fun than they could have? standing around looking like your cat just died can send a negative image to your crowd and may actually make them not to want to come back again and again. I can't tell you how many times i've seen other vendors stand around at their booth looking like they just woke up, don't care, and certainly are not having any fun. I've seen the same with a lot of DJs as well, dressin... [read more]

DJ Tips In Under A Minute: Christmas Lighting Package

September 14, 2017 by DJ Jay
Ho, ho, ho, it's the holidays and it's DJ tips in under a minute, your Christmas lighting package as you can see. Excuse the cables and wires, but this is what I'm offering to my holiday parties this year, a vibrant display of red and green, the colors of the holiday, at least out here in So Cal and this is something I'm offering as a lighting package and I'm selling it as Christmas colors in the lighting. And they say, what's that? I say, I do a wash red and green around the room. And because these lights are all close together, you probably can't see that too well, but that's actually coming off a little bit like an amber, because red and green are the primary colors for amber. So you've got a holiday party, you need a little something extra, try this, set your lights to red and green, run them around the r... [read more]

Okay, stop! Pause. Breathe. Quit running around your wedding business for two seconds and say one word with me. “Retirement.” That doesn’t calm you down, either, does it? Ugh, sorry. You’ll be searching for your ginkgo biloba and reading glasses before you know it. Hey Wedding Pros! Want to Retire Rich? To be honest, retirement savings is one of my favorite topics (no lie!) because of the power you put in your very own two hands simply by putting together a set-it-up and fuggetaboutit account. Savvy small business and wedding professional that you are, you already know that saving for retirement is a really... [read more]

“Will you play my favorite song?!” – Handling Requests 101

September 13, 2017 by Jordan Nelson
We've all been there; a drunk bridesmaid proclaiming to be the bride's best friend stumbles over to your DJ booth, flops her hand on your shoulder, and slurs something like "Hey, can you play Call Me Maybe now? It's the bride's favorite song and we really wanna hear it." You search your mind for a response as she stares intently awaiting your answer. You're now faced with a conundrum that most likely occurs at every event you work; how do you respond to requests in a way that pleases the clients, keeps the crowd happy, doesn't ruin the flow of the event, and doesn't send away the requester away in a huff? Here are my go-to responses for handling requests: 1) "What a great song! I'll definitely get that in as soon as I can!" I use this response whenever the request is a song already on the playlist, a... [read more]
