Lyle Lovett & Gringo-Friendly Spanish Dance Songs – By Staci Nichols

May 30, 2018 by Staci Nichols
Once in college, I met a Kardashian-esque LA princess. She said, “You like country music? So, like, Lyle Lovett, right?” I thought to myself, “Who the hell is Lyle Lovett? I bet the only country song she knows is “Achy Breaky Heart”...sigh.” I told her, “No, more like Garth Brooks,” who she’d never heard of. The extent of her knowledge about country music had come from what she’d read about Julia Roberts’ ex-husband in Us Weekly. After I presented at the 2017 Wedding MBA, and had mentioned my “magic pin” -- “34 Gringo-Friendly Spanish Dance Songs for an Intercultural Mexican Wedding,” -- I realized many of us gringo DJs f...

DJ Tips In Under A Minute: How To Make Your Music Folders Into Crates In Serato.

May 10, 2018 by DJ Jay
All right. DJ tips in under a minute. How to make crates, which are in Serato/library at your intro where your music is stored. They're over here, you see one says "Hunger Games," one says "Creedence Clearwater." I want to show you how easy this is in Serato. So if I hit this button here, it says files, I get a dropdown window. So I've got my music, I'm going to go to my documents where I know I have some music. Let's see, here's one, artist. I'm going to take this one that says artist, I'm going to drag it down here to the bottom and you should see something crop up and there's a crate. So anything I drag from here as a folder down to here where it says plus, that crate is then created in that name. So if I click on it, here we go, this is a Promo Only disk and it's in under a minute.   ... [read more]

It’s OK, I’m Portuguese

April 26, 2018 by Michael Cordeiro
Recently a post on a DJ page caught my attention. A younger DJ was looking for music ideas for a Portuguese wedding he had coming up. The bride and groom were of Portuguese heritage, but not really familiar with the traditional types of music. So the DJ figured he would reach out for some input. What he got was a ton of misinformation. Many of the replies suggested playing Latin or Brazilian music. Others suggested Reggaeton or Caribbean music. All wrong. It was obvious that none of the people posting suggestions knew anything about the Portuguese culture. This is where we fail. If you are going to do ethnic or culturally diverse weddings, you...

DJ Tips In Under A Minute: Finding Songs With Serato SSL/Itch.

March 8, 2018 by DJ Jay
All right. DJ tips in under a minute, we're back in prepping for a wedding. So at a wedding this weekend, I'm setting up my music, I've got my crates, I've got my tracks, but a lot of times I like to burn tracks from within my crates onto a separate drive, like a flash drive so I know I have everything that's really important to the bride and groom. So what I would do in the past is simply open up my hard drive, then search the hard drive and that can take a while, because there's 20-some-odd thousand songs on the hard drive. But I learned a cool trick, the trick is this, you have your keyboard, so you hit control-R, watch what happens, boom, you get the location of the song. It actually comes up and shows you where it is. So now you can go into the song, right-click the track, copy it, drag it to something o... [read more]

DJ Tips In Under A Minute: Use A Movie Intro Song To Get Your Crowds Attention Before Speaking.

March 1, 2018 by DJ Jay
All right. DJ tips in under a minute. You're about to speak at a wedding, you're about to speak at an event, people are chit-chatting, it's cocktail hour, whatever the case might be. It's not always enough to get on the mike and start to speak, because people traditionally don't hear the first 10 seconds of what you say, it's just human nature. So I saw this in Las Vegas at a seminar and if I remember who gave the seminar, I will credit them. I think it was Peter Merry, though, but he said, how about starting off with a song that elicits that sort of response from people? And he mentioned this one. So next time you're doing a wedding or an event, try this, right before you have to speak on the mike, play the THX jet sound effect. People know it means something is happening, something's coming and they're liab... [read more]

DJ Tips In Under A Minute: 26 Million Songs That You Have Access To.

February 22, 2018 by DJ Jay
All right. DJ tips in under a minute. It now offers 28 million songs, videos and apps. So let's say there's a million apps, minus that out. Videos, let's say there's six million videos just for numbers, because I'm not positive, let's say it's a safe bet that iTunes has 20 million songs in it, the point is I'm not going to tell people how many songs I have anymore. I think my role as their DJ is to make sure I have the right songs, because anyone with an iPhone or an iPad or anything else can get access to these songs. So telling your clients, I bring 10,000 songs, I have 300,000 songs, I have a million songs, I don't think it shows value anymore. I think it just shows that you've got a lot of music. If you don't know what track to play next, it doesn't matter what you have. So start to focus on the right son... [read more]
