    Interesting...

    Here is a new song that came out just a few months ago. I really like the song. Addicting to listen to while in my car! Listen to part of the bacgkround beat. He had to get permission from someone for that! View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4cCi6-16HR4 He sampled that background beat...

    My trusty old laptop

    I first saw the Emulator back in 2010, and I believe the cost to get one back then was $5,500. A lot of money, and unlikely it's going to get clientelle to pay you more for the look, but I still think it would be cool to DJ weddings with this set up! Not quite the same as the emulator, but...

    Anyone buying anything new?

    Nothing big: I got a Table Top Facade Bag. The Pro X one for $39.99 on IDJNOW.COM. A White 4 ft Ultimate Stands Table Cloth, and two pairs of Gravity Cable Clips. I will eventually buy 4 new wireless Up Lights. I will either buy Rockville brand lights, or rainbow lights brand. Also, I am...

    Gravity Speaker Cable Clips are finally back in stock! $3.99 a pair!

    I will also add that the Ultimate Support Table Cloths are made out of a better, nicer looking material than typical cheap cloths found on Amazon or eBay. I have a cheap 6 ft white cloth I got off of Amazon for like $12 a few years ago. It is a bit thinner, and also it will wrinkle very easily...

    Gravity Speaker Cable Clips are finally back in stock! $3.99 a pair!

    True. I have plenty of velcro ties in my bag. However, I do like using the cable clips. The cable clips I can keep on speaker stands in the bag so I don't have to take them off, put away, and put back on at every event. Also, if I forget a cable, but already tied up the velcro, then I have to...

    DJX

    Pitbull before he was popular? I am assuming this was like DJX '02 or DJX '03. I have his first album from 2004. Loved that album! If he was at DJX in 04 than that was truly a treat at the time as his album came out that month and he already was popular down in Florida. I didn't get to...

    Gravity Speaker Cable Clips are finally back in stock! $3.99 a pair!

    They are back in stock, and at the original price of $3.99 a pair! For a short while they increased to $9.99 a pair before they were completely sold out last year everywhere. Took about 10 months, but back in stock! https://www.idjnow.com/gravity-gsacc35b-speaker-pole-cable-clips.html I am...

    DJ in Need

    Sorry to hear he had a stroke :( That is terrible news. It's impressive the amount of donations he has received. Over $55,000 already. SCE is a top DJ company. He had to be doing well with bookings from them. Don't understand why he didn't have some sort of a medical insurance plan, even a...

    DJX

    Not going. I won't have enough time to take off of work to make the trip up. My wife also said I'm not going this year, so there's that! I'm almost wondering if the DJ Expo will survive to make it another 5 years. We are an aging group, and attendance has seemed to be in decline in recent...

    Not So Fast

    Yes. The biggest difference these days is exactly what Ross described. I'm a one man show 95% of my events, and I will set up for ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception, and tear it all down. I usually tear down ceremony set up during cocktail hour. 20 years ago I was setting up my Numark CD...

    Not So Fast

    I won't ever do records for a wedding or any event. No thank you. Mt first gig in 1995 at 13 yrs old helping my Dad out as a 2nd DJ for a 3 level house party I was using CDs with two single disc cd players, and a radio shack mixer. My Dad had retired using tapes about 3 years before that, and...

    How many uplights?

    I have 13 wireless Up Lights, 12 wired up lights, and 3 bar lights. So, I have a total of 28 lights currently. I would have 30, but one of my chinese wireless up lights bit the dust, and one of my wired ones is malfunctioning pretty bad. I most often sell 12 wireless up lights to my clients...

    It's a seller's market right now...

    My Dad's old Yamaha BR 12s still work well. They are from 2003. I was considering grabbing them next time I go to see my mom, and sell them. None of us use amps and passive speakers any more. He had been using a pair of Alto powered speakers for the last 6 years or so and kept them around as...
