Mobile Beat, March 2013 (#148)

For us here at Mobile Beat, the first two months of the year are always the busiest. In January, we head out to the Winter NAMM show in Anaheim. As usual, this year’s music industry extravaganza did not disappoint. Then, in February, we gear up for the highlight of our year, and we hope yours as well: the MB Vegas show. Our latest installment, MBLV17 (the 17th show), once again provided the best yearly opportunity for serious pro DJs—rookies and veterans alike—to up their entertainment game and have tons of fun in the process. (Our NAMM Report and MBLV17 recap are available to subscribers, online or in print.)

The other major focus of this issue is the realm of video. We keep coming back to it, simply because we have to; more and more of you are offering video to your clients, while still more are considering making the jump. We hope that some insights from successful practiioners Lane O”Neill (VJinfiniti), DVDJ Crush, Stu Chisholm, and Rich McCoy will help you improve what your already doing, or figure out how you will make your entrance into the video arena.

And of course there’s a wide variety of other information to be found on the following pages, including: product reviews; good business advice on delegating, charity events, the new tax code, and the #1 wedding sales myth (hmm…); how to handle difficulties at youth events; how to approach the senior market; a new way to use your audience members’ smartphones; the continuing relevance of disco music for mobile DJs; and much more.
