An Insight into Musician Kenny Rogers

January 20, 2020 by Mobile Beat
One musician who dramatically influenced sports betting is Kenny Rogers, with his signature "The Gambler" country hit. Don Schlitz wrote the song, and various musicians recorded it. However, Kenny Rogers is the one who brought out the tune perfectly and left a lasting mark in the lives of many since releasing it in 1978. Though Schlitz wrote the song in memory of his deceased father, it has had a considerable impact on the sports betting industry. In the song, Ken and the Gambler are on a boring train trip, playing poker, when The Gambler breaks the ice by claiming to read Kenny's face. According to the song, the expression on Kenny's face indicated that he was out of aces. The Gambler offers to give him some advice for a taste of his whiskey.  Below are the lyrics to the song "The Gambler" and their sign... [read more]

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. DJs post the same photos of their guests dancing, the same photos of their setups (and most people have similar looking equipment), and even write nearly the same thing on their websites, social media, ...

Famous Celebrities That Have Had Bad Gambling Habits

January 10, 2020 by Mobile Beat
What does a loaded celebrity with free passage to any casino and lots of free time do? Some grab some cash and walk into the nearest casino to gamble. That's the script for many of the celebs who blew their fortune by placing multi-million-dollar wagers. In this post, we shall look at a couple of celebs who have become infamous because of their gambling problems Ben Affleck has always had a soft spot for poker. Reports surfacing in 2014 revealed he also had a knack for blackjack, and that he was good at counting cards. Sadly, what started as a pastime soon affected his marriage. Things went bad between Affleck and Jennifer Garner, his ex-wife, and the couple eventually separated in 2015. With four Masters to his name years ago (he won in 2019 too), Tiger Woods is perhaps the most successful golfer in ou... [read more]

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]

January 9, 2020 by Terry Lewis
At the beginning of each year, I set one big goal. In 2011 it was to improve the appeal of my website so brides and grooms would: 1) Hang around longer, and 2) Click my call to action to enquire.

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]

The Final Word

December 31, 2019 by Mitch Taylor
It's December 31st, 2019.  The end of a decade.  The end of an era.  2020 brings to it new ownership for Mobile Beat, and I'm excited to be affiliated with the new team and direction as we gear up towards another Mobile Beat Photo Booth Expo Cruise.  However, that's not what this space is about.  This space is about saying thank you. The only thing constant is change.  It's important as friends and colleagues move on into new chapters in their lives for us to look back, give thanks, and praise them for helping us along in our journey in life.  If it wasn't for Ryan Burger, I wouldn't have been able to speak to you through this medi...
