    DEPOSIT REQUEST

    None of us knows the place that's looking to book you. So we don't know how they pay vendors. It might be like a school dance where they cut you a check after the event. Sometimes weeks after the event. So I would find out how do they pay vendors and proceed from there. Something in...

    DEPOSIT REQUEST

    Let me say I like the word retainer better than deposit. I understand your concerns since you've never worked for this client. You want to make sure you get paid. I would talk to them to see how they plan to pay you. If you don't agree with the way they want to pay you I would talk to them...

    Doing a Sorority formal - think I'll use their sound system

    I heard the Evox system at the networking meeting and to me it sounded awesome! The room was small. What I find it depends on the system and how it's used. In certain apps a certain system may not be good enough and in another setting just right. Do remember most of us that are in the know...

    Doing a Sorority formal - think I'll use their sound system

    How many F1's were installed? Maybe that might be part of the issue?

    Doing a Sorority formal - think I'll use their sound system

    What size room were you in and how many people attended the event? That can make a big difference. Trying to push a system beyond its limitations to fill a room is not good. It's about the right tools for the job. Since we don't know the room layout or number of people attending the event...

    I am hungry for getting back to work!

    I had the hip replacement surgery in January and I'm doing great. I stopped using my cane for at least a week. I miss work dearly! I'm more than ready. The only thing I'm not ready to do is heavy lifting. Hopefully something will come in very soon. I am trying to get a owner to agree to...

    Doing a Sorority formal - think I'll use their sound system

    Bose makes some nice stuff today that is good for some applications. Not for just any application. Depending on the size room you were in and the size crowd that system wouldn't be good enough. You also talked about comparing those subs to the ones you have. They don't come close. That's...

    Furman on speakers

    The big deal about Furman is protecting your gear. If there's a power surge or something accidentally gets disconnected, the Furman will save your gear from being damaged. I like using the Furmans we have instead of a cheap power strip.

    New Sennheiser Wireless Audio

    I know the Alto stealth wireless system works. This should work as well. I want the Alto Stealth wireless system myself. I might look into getting it very soon.

    Corded mic Question

    He can use an XLR cable to hook into the mixing board. That would do it. One end hooks into the mic and the other end goes into the mixing board.

    Ditch the Laptop

    My question is the weight issue. How heavy is it? Nice unit for a stationary gig but for mobile work, no thanks. My partner bought the Numark 7 which was a nice unit. It was just too damn heavy for mobile work. It took both of us to load it in and out of the van. Getting it upstairs was a...

    On the verge of buying a new cc-mobile

    Because it's better to be safe than sorry. I know some of you live in nice neighborhoods and all of that. The ordinary thief may not be able to steal your vehicle or stuff that's in it. Just remember there professional thieves out there that do it for a living.

    Shoulder Problems?

    Go see another doctor. If you have to see 2 or 3 different doctors.

    BAD WEDDING DJ?

    Let's keep it simple. Non of us were there. So we don't know exactly what happened. So we should take it easy on each other. What we say here about this is just our own opinion. We all have a right to our own opinion. Obviously nobody is supposed to agree with everything that someone says...

    Alex Trebek diagnosed with Cancer

    I'm wishing him the best as well. Only God knows the outcome. Also pitcher Tom Seaver isn't doing any more public appearances as he has Dementia. My father had it and it's painful to watch him deteriorate right before our eyes and know on a Tuesday that he didn't have long to go. He died...

    BAD WEDDING DJ?

    One thing that is a fact if that was the DJ, he had on a plain short sleeve shirt.

    BAD WEDDING DJ?

    You missed my point and that is I don't know anybody who started out knowing what to do. You learned things over time. I can admit I'm judgmental at times without knowing who the DJ is and that's wrong. Just like others are judgmental when it comes to the price a DJ is charging a client...

    BAD WEDDING DJ?

    One thing that I feel can't be excused is the way the DJ was dressed. Even if it was a beach wedding he could have dressed a little better than that. Let me ask everyone this please. How long did it take you to get to become a polished professional and understand the importance? Nobody I...

    BAD WEDDING DJ?

    What happened is plan and simple. Some people are out to see what they can get away with. Not everyone is honest decent people. It's not a personal thing I tell people, it's business. Once you play any music you can't take it back at the end of the event if they don't pay.

    BAD WEDDING DJ?

    To be fair non of us here knows who that DJ was. So we don't know how long this DJ had been in business when asked to do this wedding. So we don't know that DJs experience at doing weddings at that time.

    BAD WEDDING DJ?

    Let me add this. Whatever the price the DJ was to be paid, that DJ should have been more professional than that. The way he dressed was terrible and not having the right music for specific parts is no excuse. I look at it this way. When at work you're providing entertainment for your...

    Rock n roller no flat wheels

    Only way I would want either of them is if you pay me. I will never own another one either.

    BAD WEDDING DJ?

    It's a 2 edge sword. Now I don't know who each and every client any of you deal with are like. In a lot of cases it can be a total stranger. Someone you've never worked for before hand. Now most people are honest decent people. However not everyone is a honest decent person. It's about...

    Crisis narrowly averted

    As much as I don't care for Bob because of a lot of his posts. This time you missed what he said and he made a great point. A photographer that is truly a professional charging truly a professional price wouldn't even have a situation like that come up. The reason is their price is so high...

    Again it's about what he said here and not what we are to guess what he meant.
