...so you sit on your ass surfing the internet to hire a professional and with no personal knowledge and based on a $600 rate you hire an unknown, unvetted person with a fancy webpage and a supply of unproven/un-verified accolades, claims and reviews and then got less than professional service and consideration...seems like you got what your efforts warranted.

Sucks to be stupid.

I wish that too and I also wish that he would have told the reporter to go pound sand.

No mention of a contract or any terms of any agreement...screw these lazy, low price driven shoppers and the leeching, bottom dwelling pretenders that feast on them, they get what their collective ignorance and selfish practices warrant.

P.S. This is a video from 2010...I bet she's already "divorced" from her SO.

BTW, while leaving the timeline at home is stupid I don't feel like I need to be taking potshots. After all, I'm the DJ who didn't have a power cord for his speakers......just this past Saturday.

To be honest...when she quoted him... she used a specific affect in her voice to insinuate that he came up to her like a mouth breather and grunted out...
"DURRRR I FORGOT THE TIMELINE ...SO WHEN DO U WANT TO CUT THE CAKE?" when in reality he may have politely apologized and asked for her help in insuring he not mix things up... i guess we will never know...

sounds to me like she got the runt of the litter from some multi op ...

I know you've had a perfect track record with brides (wink wink) but in my case, anytime they decide to air their gripes, I've NEVER ONCE found their claims to be any less than wildly inflated. Since they didn't give the DJ a change to offer a rebuttal, I view this as bad reporting, at the very least.

She got off easy. There is a long list of people where the companies never show up or go out of business before the date. I have seen it happen to with DJ companies & venues multiple times. One time the venue was still taking deposits day or two before they went go of business.

The DJ was dressed inappropriately, and he forgot to bring his timeline. Certainly a bad start. He played Elton John during dinner, but we don’t know what else he played, and we don’t know if the guests enjoyed the music. We don’t know if he filled the dance floor. We don’t know his side of the story. We DO know it’s another case of shoddy journalism!

One lesson to be learned... put all your documents (including timelines) on your computer. If you forget your computer, yer not gonna be DJing anyway.

I also put them in the cloud (Dropbox) .. so even if I grab the wrong computer (I have 3 for music), I can get them quickly. I also put "must have stuff" (music, video) there as well ... just in case.

One issue I have is the assumption that her spending $600 for this DJ to perform at her wedding means that DJ can't be any good. She could have spent more money for a DJ, but that doesn't guarantee she would get a truly great DJ.

Now the way that DJ was dressed to do that wedding was VERY tacky. She requested the DJ wear a tux. For $600 that might have been a stretch. Now if the DJ already had a tux great. I find it hard to believe a DJ getting paid $600 to do this wedding would rent a tux. That would severely cut into their profit. At least that's my opinion.

...and your (<-specific) defense of cheepazzness is added evidence to the logic of the very assumption you failingly attempt to refute.

Yeah, never a good idea to post only ONE side of a dispute.
Then again, Rick may be right, and he didn't WANT to be mentioned by name.
Granted, we've all made mistakes, and sometimes...made a bunch of them at the SAME gig...
(in his case: shirt, missing timeline, and wrong music during dinner)
but I would also be curious to know how the REST of the evening went!

Safe to presume it went HORRIBLY based on the little information we can rely on AND the fact that the client made the effort to seek media attention to garner some retributive justice, albeit based solely on her weak judgment.

NO ONE would go to that extreme waste of energy and of limited intelligence to talk smack about a successful event...but she does sound like a whiny little moron.

Sometimes (most of the time in my experience) karma IS justice.

Just keep relying on inadequate, sketchy, unqualified information and you'll get more of the same.

Here's my opinion... A DJ who wants to work premium events should OWN his own tux. :djsmug:
