    Digital Song Request Service - DJ's Get Paid!

    Some of the bigger clubs in my area don't even have a dancefloor. It's all VIP sections for bottle service and hookahs. They "dance" and people watch from their sections all while on Facebook Live or some other social media. As long as the music is current and loud, they could care less. After...

    Cheap uplighting...?

    I've stopped using the cheap Chinese lights. NYE I was doing a party using two of them to accent my speakers. Halfway through the party I started smelling and seeing smoke come from one of the lights. I immediately unplugged both and just relied on my ADJ lights for the rest of the night. It...

    What are your plans for NYE?

    I'm DJing a house party. I did this client's NYE party last year. Nothing fancy, I'll just use a single powered speaker and one effect light. Very easy money.

    Ring doorbell, anyone?

    I've been using Wyze cameras around my house. They have been pretty dependable. You can add an on board memory card for continuous recording and they also have 2 way audio like the Ring doorbells.

    How many of you use Cash App to take care of a business transaction?

    Cash App works just like Paypal or Venmo. The checking accounts have to be verified to send money.

    How many of you use Cash App to take care of a business transaction?

    Most of my restaurant/bar gigs pay with Cash App now. it's either that or a check. I've also had a couple of wedding clients pay by Cash App. It works just like PayPal. You can do instant transfer to your bank account for a small fee or wait a couple of days for a free transfer. The card is an...

    New Harbinger Vari 2,500 Watt Speakers with Visual DSP

    I just noticed these new speakers. I've never been a big fan of Harbinger but I bought one of the V2312 on Black Friday. It was on sale for $199. I mainly bought it because I needed to make some speakers covers for a friend that has 4 of them. It's always easier for me to make the covers when...

    This Sunday's bridal shower went very well.

    Are these new limits? I've received more than $250 from customers via Cash app in the past and was able to do Instant Deposit to my bank for a fee.

    This Sunday's bridal shower went very well.

    Yeah, Cash App has really taken over as a form of payment. All of my bar/restaurant gigs lately have been paid via Cash App. I also ordered the card so I could avoid paying the fee for Instant deposit into my bank account.

    When will you stop buying equipment?

    I thought I was the last person with some Community speakers. My passive system has 4 XLT47 and a pair of CPL42. I rarely get to bring that system out .

    How many pieces of gear/equipment do you use routinely that is over 10 years old?

    My 2 Technics turntables are the only pieces of gear that I use regularly that are over 10 years old. I have a passive sound system that is older and well maintained but I never get the opportunity to bring it out any more.

    Got to figure out money to get bags for the Yamaha DSR 115 speakers.

    I would advertise it more but my wife got a new job recently so that kind of slows production down. If I could figure out how to set up and use the sewing machine I might consider putting more effort into it. It's funny that I can set up a sound and light system, work on my car but a sewing...

    Got to figure out money to get bags for the Yamaha DSR 115 speakers.

    The first pair was for me but then I showed them off in a Facebook group and we got bombarded with orders. I've sold about 50 pair of speaker covers. We've also made covers for custom DJ consoles and other equipment.

    Got to figure out money to get bags for the Yamaha DSR 115 speakers.

    My wife and I actually got into the business of making speaker covers a couple of years ago. I get the specs of the speakers and and do the measuring and cutting while my wife does the sewing. They are pretty much the same as what Connie does. We used moving blankets from Harbor Freight.

    Got a date to use the handball court again.

    Park jams are cool but they need to be organized in order to be successful. It takes more than getting permission to use the park and putting out some flyers. Here in Atlanta we do an annual event in the park called DJ's Day Out. This year was our 8th consecutive year doing it. I got to be a...
