Front Or Back Part 2

November 26, 2019 by Mitch Taylor
I had a critique by a colleague of mine recently where he noted that when I am not in the moment, I tend to get resting Mitch face if you will. Now my ever affectionate team at Taylored Weddings dubbed me that a couple years back now, and it’s stuck.  Realize you're always in the moment. I train our ministers that that moment is for the bride and groom. You're taking a step back, you're getting out of the shot for the photographer, for that first kiss as husband and wife just after the pronouncement as husband and wife.  I think that absolutely there are times where you should be front, however a ceremony, IN MY OPINION, is not...

Rusty Details Part 2

November 12, 2019 by Mitch Taylor
So how did everything end up after my faux pas the day before at the ceremony?  After the ceremony was over the next day, I was complimented by the Step Father of the bride, by the Father of the Groom, and by the Mother of the Bride after the ceremony about what a wonderful job I did serving as their Officiant.    Here’s the rub.  We’re not always perfect.  No one is. The key thing to note is to take a moment and stop to smell the roses if you will, stop and enjoy life for a minute.  Center yourself around your purpose, your calling and why it is that you do what you do. Some people think our lives are just party-fil... [read more]

Rusty Details Part 1

November 5, 2019 by Mitch Taylor
The devil is in the details...or sometimes the rusty details if you will.  What do I mean by that….rusty details? Have you ever come back into the thick of event season after a short break and sometimes you find yourself slip back into rote?  Doing the same thing that you’ve always done. If you’re honest with yourself...I bet you have. This happened to me recently and I thought I would share the experience with you here.  I got to a rehearsal after a short break from the season last year and I go into rote. What’s rote? Rote, according to Dictionary.com, is the mechanical or habitual repetition of something to be lear... [read more]

MOBILE BEAT #209 – ONLINE NOW

August 31, 2019 by Dan Walsh
Comparison / Contrast for DJs Way back when, as a freshman in college, my first writing prof introduced me to the wonders of the "comparison/contrast" essay: It's where you take a look at the similarities and/or differences between two things or subjects as a way to express some interesting truth about them. This Mobile Beat issue, which I originally thought would be a bunch of unrelated articles, actually offers a pretty good helping of comparisons and contrasts: competition/teamwork, cutting-edge quick mixing/crowd-pleasing classic song lists, how to build company culture/how NOT to build company culture, and so on. We even profile a solo operator... [read more]

3 Must Do’s For Video Marketing Part 2

August 27, 2019 by Mitch Taylor
This week we finish off our article of 3 Must Do's for Video Marketing.  Here's #2. Be Presentable - Dirty little secret in the DJ world is attractiveness.  No one wants to have a slovenly looking person on a microphone in front of their family and friends or sweating profusely behind turntables when you’re just standing there.  Everything about you from your clothes to your hair to your setup speaks. Be sure it’s conveying the right message. The Length.  Don’t go for long shots that last for :05 or more.  Don’t go for videos that are over 2:00. Keep it short so that your clients will view it.  ... [read more]
