ARE YOU READY FOR SUMMER?MB 155 cover-sm

Although it may seem as though spring will never come, summer will actually be upon you before you know it.

Summer is a good time to try new things and maybe get a handle on the art of making midweek money. In this issue you’ll learn about getting started in the realm of outdoor movies, projected on inflatable screens. This concept isn’t new, but is always worth a look. Robert Starkey and Ryan Burger give you the lowdown.

How about a new spin on an old favorite? DigiGames has brought bingo into the 21st century with its newly release Extreme Bingo program. We talk with Tom Dorsher about its genesis.

Another new concept, especially important to wedding DJs, is the use of Pinterest, the social sharing site. New writer Staci Nichols provides a thorough introduction to this powerful new way to connect with your couples.

Summer can also get pretty hot, and Arnoldo Offermann offers his alternative take on the whole “more than a DJ” discussion—you’ll be surprised at his conclusions.

We’ll cover the gamut from kids’ events (Jay Maxwell), to senior venues (Jim Papa), as well as a bunch of other relevant business topics.

In the gear arena, our NAMM report puts a spotlight on what’s new and cool from your favorite manufacturers. We also review: the power-packed combo of Yamaha’s DXR10 top speaker and the DXS12 sub; the Beatpad controller from Reloop; Sennheiser’s HD-25 headphones; and much more.

This issue of Mobile Beat is chock full of ideas to work on for summer and beyond.

And don’t miss our MBLV18 photo highlights—they are sure to whet you appetite for the next MB show, especially if you missed it this year.
