    Lights for light tree/stand

    Can't wait to get the mydmxgo tomorrow and play with all the settings (including pixel mapping. I've yet to try that effect!). I got it from Sweetwater and with their SweetTrack I can see everywhere the shipment is going. It's like being a kid watching the news on Christmas Eve when they're...

    Lights for light tree/stand

    I'm with Chris. After reading the reviews and hearing comments about the Chauvet Wash FX2, I decided to buy 2 and use them at a wedding a few weeks ago. I was blown away by the brightness of them. They put my other Chauvet fixtures to shame. They accomplish with 2 fixtures that four of my...

    Issues Uploading Videos to Facebook

    Nah, not a copyright issue. I arranged and composed the music myself via a DAW. The standard license with the DAW allows you to post it on social media. Just can't sell it until you upgrade the license with some more $$. I haven't had issues before either so it did seem weird. I have heard of...

    Issues Uploading Videos to Facebook

    I included this under the heading DJ Marketing since we've talked about social media being used as a marketing tool. Has anyone had issues with videos actually showing up that you've up uploaded to FB. I uploaded two (one was about 3.5 min in length and another super short 15 second ad). That...

    First (and only) prom for this year

    Hey Rick, I notice that the screen is close to the wall. Where are you projecting from? Front of screen, short-throw projection on the ground?

    , So to clarify is it the app itself that needs an update or is it an Apple update to the Ipad that is in need of an update or some update to the actual device?

    DEPOSIT REQUEST

    For me, being fairly new at the DJ gig, I feel like I'm not in a position to turn down a gig (like a car show) "in the hopes of something else better coming along". I can see the various sides given..i.e. those that know their market and based on a good number of years of experience knowing that...

    Flashy suits? Yes or no?

    What if you're doing a barn wedding or something similar? I'm doing a wedding reception this weekend that is at a really small rural town bar and grill that has a rustic-themed large reception area (actually well done in the sense that it has some cool antiques in the venue). Seems a bit out of...

    My New Dilemma

    Hey Chris...I'm going to be using those FX2's for the first time at a wedding next weekend. Do you ever angle these things toward the ceiling or a bit toward the side walls at all since they're so bright? Or do you just get 'em high enough and point toward the dance floor?

    My New Dilemma

    Yeah...just bought two of those Chauvet FX2 and I am literally amazed at the output of those things! Brighter and fill up the room with more light than I imagined.

    DEPOSIT REQUEST

    All great input! I had done a car show last year where I didn’t ask for a deposit nor got a contract signed ( didn’t have one at the time). No problems at the event nor in getting paid. So in doing the show this year, now that I have these processes in place, it made me wonder if I even need to...

    DEPOSIT REQUEST

    Yeah, I understand if it's a weekly set-up at the same location. I'm more curious about one-time events. Do you guys require a signed contract for business customers?

    DEPOSIT REQUEST

    First, I wanted to say the layout of the forum looks nice. Kudos! Secondly, my question is regarding requesting deposits in regards to booking. I know a deposit is a 'must' to finalize a booking for a wedding etc. Do any of you mandate a deposit when it comes to a bar or a brewery (for like a...

    Good suggestion. I can see where those kinds of small things add value in a website visitor's mind.

    Website Structure - The purpose of a website

    So far, I've been focusing on getting the site set up so I can have something to refer folks to so no weddings or events set up just now. I've had a couple of inquiries from word of mouth but no results just yet. For now, I have my price for a 6 hr wedding at $500. I have 4 wireless up lights...
