Play Ball

June 22, 2016 by Mobile Beat

We all know that our unique experiences, hard work and desire to grow make a big differencegripngaff-papa in our overall success. Any so-called DJ can play a set or two of music regardless of experience or skill. Our challenge is to make sure our prospective clients realize that we professional DJs bring much more to the table. One way to do this is to offer them something that no one else will. For example, summer and the baseball season are upon us. Clients will be planning summer barbeques, pool parties and outdoor events. Take advantage of the fresh air. Use your unique abilities and think outside of the box. Suggest a baseball themed event.

I know what you’re thinking: “What exactly do you mean a baseball themed event? I’m a DJ, not a sportscaster!” Your’e right, but a smart DJ not only offers dance music to his or her clients but thinks of other ways to incorporate music, equipment and skills into their events. Today, nostalgia is big. Seniors love nostalgia. Why not add baseball highlights or clips to your event and market it as a way that will enhance the clients’ overall experience by bringing back memories of the good old days. In addition to the obvious “Take Me Out To The Ballgame,” “The Star Spangled Banner” and “God Bless America,” different regions of the country have their own traditions, favorite teams and preferred music selections. Add “Casey at the Bat” or a clip of Abbott and Costello’s classic “Who’s on First” routine. No matter how many times you hear them, you will laugh and your audience will do the same. (It is so much a part of Baseball and American culture that it is featured in Major League Baseball’s Hall of Fame at Cooperstown.)
