Professional vs Amateur DJs – What’s the Difference?

January 12, 2020 by Jason Alexander
professional djs-austins-best-djs When it comes to DJs, there are a variety of DJs in the DJ business. There are club DJs, mobile DJs, radio DJs, and everything in between. Many people mistakenly think that all DJs are the same. We know that this is certainly not true. However, for brides, grooms, and any client who is considering hiring you, you need to be able to easily explain why this is not true for you! Think about it.

No New Year New Me Baloney

January 10, 2020 by Michael Cordeiro
The other day I went outside to finally start taking down all the Christmas lights I put up. It's no small task. I'm "that guy" in my neighborhood. I have a simple philosophy when putting up the lights each year. If you can't see them from space you need more. I like to think of my house as the Griswolds, but classier. The way I see it is if I can't make my house look spectacular, then why would anyone hire me to do lighting for their event? Taking down the lights gives me plenty of time to think. Of course I do everything the "DJ" way. All light strings get wrapped a certain way. Colors are separated in tubs and all the extension cords get wrapped... [read more]

2020 The Year of No Resolutions

December 31, 2019 by Michael Cordeiro
As the final hours of 2019 count down many of you are preparing to rock in the New Year at a club or private event. God bless ya. For the second time in twenty years I'm actually off. I don't really mind at all. December was crazy and after 29 years in the industry I'm happy to be able to kiss my wife in person at midnight instead of phoning it in from some venue. I'll be comfortably sitting at home in my PJ's enjoying munchies and a nice scotch on the rocks watching the ball drop. That being said, I'm happy 2019 is almost over. Business wise it was a solid year. On a personal level 2019 was challenging to say the least. No love lost whe... [read more]

It’s Official: The Word Official is Officially Overused

December 6, 2019 by Michael Cordeiro
Is it just me or does every commercial you see or hear have some company claiming to be the "Official" sponsor or representative of something? How did they get that title? Lottery? The bigger question is: Does your favorite sports team need an "Official" toe nail fungus remover? Probably not, but they're out there. Several local radio stations have claimed the title of "Official Home of Christmas Music". Was there a vote? Who's in charge of handing out these titles? All kidding aside, does having the title "Official (blank) of Something" really help your business? I can't say that being the official oil change garage of the Boston Bruins makes me wan...
