Feeling like you’re in a rut? Need to pump up your performance and add some fresh excitement to your shows…and some more profits to your bottom line? Maybe what you need is to step outside of your comfort zone, think outside the box, and change the game with your business. (And while you’re at it, come up with some alternatives to all those clichés.)
This issue offers some ideas that have the potential to shake up your routine. Need to build some new performance skill, as well as the ability to handle whatever gets thrown at you? Check out Matt Martindale’s piece discussing “serious” improv comedy education and his experience with it. Joe Bunn shares his perspective on club-to-mobile and mobile-to-club transitions, pointing out some interesting similarities and important differences between the two DJ realms. And Arnoldo Offermann outlines his method of applying youth event-style energy to wedding receptions. Certainly not for everyone, but a great example of how to truly think outside the box, and in the process capture a market niche no one else was even aware of. Along with some behind-the-scenes reports on February’s game-changing MBLV event, this issue may be just what you need to inspire your own DJ transformation!
