DJ Tips In Under A Minute: Create A Time Line With Songs And Names For Your Wedding

December 27, 2018 by DJ Jay
All right. DJ tips in under a minute. This is an actual timeline from a wedding I did, wow, three years ago. As you can see, it outlines what time everything is going to happen, names for things, first dance names, who's giving a blessing, who's giving the toast, any changes, the father/daughter dance had not been decided yet, bouquet toss, last dance, all those things. I do this for every wedding. Even if I have a coordinator who's sending me a timeline, I do this for my eyes, because I want to know that everything is included and if I suddenly stepped away and had someone come in and jump in my wedding, they would have all the information they needed to do a great job. So whether you have a coordinator or not, when you meet with your clients, go over their timeline, jot down your own notes, have your own gu... [read more]

December 17, 2018 by Mobile Beat
If you’re travelling to the United States this year, or if you live in the US, there are a great many music festivals during all months and all over the vast country.  These festivals usually feature one type of music so you can travel from venue to venue, sightsee on the way, and hear fantastic music throughout your trip.  One thing about the many music festivals that dot the landscape: they compete to some extent with casinos that also dot the landscape.  But the people who come to these music festivals are generally content to play free casino games on their laptop or mobile device! In this short piece, we’ll focus on music festivals in North Carolina.  As relatively small as North Carolina is, it has a very large selection of festivals.

DJ Tips In Under A Minute: Top Hits USA Music Service

August 23, 2018 by DJ Jay
All right. DJ tips in under a minute, another music company to look at. And what I like is this company, Top Hits U.S.A. They actually send you out a disk, it's an MP3/DVD/ROM and this one has 16 CDs' worth of MP3s on it. So you put this in the computer, you rip it into your hard drive and you're done, but here's your backup, which is kind of cool, you've got a disk. They offer it on each month. Let me just put this one down. Here's another month, here's July. Again, I think this one has 15 CDs in MP3 format, all 320s and they offer video. So if you're looking for a source out there for your videos, these come in MPEG-4s on a DVD and these come in MP3s, 320k. So another company to look at. This is Top Hits U.S.A., tips in under a minute.   ... [read more]

From Hip Hop Icon to Ambassador of Positivity – By Michael Cordeiro

August 2, 2018 by Michael Cordeiro
Mobile Beat Las Vegas has always prided itself on featuring major talent at the evening celebrations that are a key part of each event. Each artist or group that has performed at Mobile Beat has made an indelible mark on the music industry in some way; this year is no different. Making his second appearance at MBLV (the first being in 2009) is Rob Van Winkle—aka Vanilla Ice! Rob’s multi-platinum hit “Ice Ice Baby” not only helped brake down stereotypes of who a “rapper” could be, the song also made a whole new generation fans of Hip Hop, both the music and the style. Kids wanted to dress like him, dance like him and be ice cold co... [read more]
