    Guys don't sweat it! Just do what I do. Put a frozen turkey & some ham in the machine and at the end of the night eat it for dinner. :laugh:

    What online music source do you use when someone request a song at an event you're doing that you don't have?

    As been pointed out, you can get ad blockers for free, but I never rely on youtube for streaming requested songs. If I don't have the song, I ask for a second choice.

    Need a new music source

    Probably NOT! You can lead a horse to water..... One thing outside of the DJs control is the weather. I have an outdoor wedding on December 11, and I'm praying for 70-75 degrees & no rain. :laugh:

    Need a new music source

    As someone who takes pride in providing a high-quality personalized service, I make it clear to my clients that I'm the Professional, not them. I honor requests, but it's still my responsibility to know what to play and when to play them. Also, it doesn't matter how many songs a DJ has, if they...

    Which DJ Facade Do you like more?

    You think? I little research before the event could have prevented such a tight fit. I hope you learned a valuable lesson. Even the best facade doesn't account for the inability to plan ahead.

    Weddings Some DJs Have QUIT Doing Weddings And I Understand Why

    All good "relevant" points Ricky. That's the reality for Mobile DJs that rely on Thumbtack for new events. I feel sorry for those DJs. BTW, I hapen to know one personally that claims to have done more than 6000 events and is a competition winner, the best DJ, yada yada. But, his rates don't...

    Weddings Some DJs Have QUIT Doing Weddings And I Understand Why

    All that after a pandemic. LOL #1 If you got into wedding DJing because those events are lucrative, then you got into it for the wrong reasons. #2 Having a clearly defined niche can help with that one. #3 Length of time is insignificant, when you are getting paid accordingly. #4 Stress is...

    Your prediction on this business in the next few years

    Those who have an established brand of service & a target market (like you and Taso) will continue to succeed. Multi DJ Ops & Agencies will continue to do what they do. Technology will continue toward the wireless end, and Mobile DJs will continue to debate whether they are full-time or...

    Have you raised your prices in the last year?

    It's great to read that some members are raising their rates. Unfortunately the Mobile DJs that should listen and read advice. do NOT take part in this forums. Back in the 90s, I attended the Mobile DJ conference in Las Vegas and they had a speaker named Mark Ferrell and he advised at the time...
