Music, Mixing & More

Many think that mobile DJing isn’t a creative endeavor, but this issue helps correct that misconception, While of course the MB Top 200 List reveals the usual suspects at the top of the list (because, ahem, people—not DJs—chose them, over and over again!), we also have some great material on switching up line dance songs, marrying video and lighting, creatively adjusting to the unexpected, and a whole lot more.

In fact, mobile DJs exercise creativity across a wide spectrum: in interactive performance, in client relationships, in marketing and promotions, and, yes, even in the realm of music. (Along with Staci Nichols’ suggestions for shaking off the line dance doldrums, Joe Bunn also has some great advice on how to creatively mix all those tried-and-true standards to acheive the mobile DJ’s ultimate goal: a packed dance floor.)

Bottom line? The creativity of mobile DJs may not be as obvious as that of some great remixer or superstar DJ, but it’s definitely there, in service of grateful clients, every single weekend of the year!
