    Interesting Week with phone calls...from other DJs

    Actually you want to be at the beginning/start or create a trend, by time everybody knows about it you want to be already working on your next one. Of course you have to have all your other bases covered and be starting something which is applicable to your market/clients

    Interesting Week with phone calls...from other DJs

    People are still having parties & events and stilling having entertainment and/or DJs. What has charged is who they hire. And has you go up in level/price there are less and people in each category. Looking over the span of 45+ years I’ve seen a lot change. Some change and adapt, others don’t...

    Got a date to use the handball court again.

    It is a real class. 8 classes, then you do 2 shows and get a dvd of your performance. Sort of like public speaking but more difficult. Comedy isn’t easy, I have a few friends who are working comedians. I’ve seen a few comedians really die on stage at my college conferences, really brutal to...

    Got a date to use the handball court again.

    There is so much entertainment value here. When I take my Comedy class I have so much material. Just when I think I’ve seen or heard it all. More gets “piled on”

    Got a date to use the handball court again.

    I do outdoor movies thru the third week in October. It can be cool & gets dark early. Then after dark it gets even colder. I keep my winter coats, gloves & earmuffs in the truck for a October event, no joke. You better hope of good weather & promote like hell, because people don’t usually go to...

    Got a date to use the handball court again.

    Mix isn’t doing what these guys are doing what’s n the video. They coordinated organizations or groups using matching speakers most likely using these events as promotion for other events they do. Back in the 90s when I was doing lighting only events Because I just got my Intels that the West...

    Got a date to use the handball court again.

    I am in NY, 15 mins from Brooklyn and setting up sound systems like you showed in the video is really a Jamaican thing although they do it in other countries, even in Asia. Notice in the video that’s an organized contest going on where each of the sound systems are being graded and evaluated. I...

    If You Have an Open M.2 SSD Slot On Your Laptop, Add a 250Gb SSD for $33

    Update and word of caution. When I leave the USB drive and it tends to heat up. I remember seeing something about this one line too. Right now I’m pulling it out a little to disconnect it when not in use. I’ll have to look into this more to see if it is a issue with this one of my laptops or a...

    Laser show

    I have to talk to the guys at X laser the next time I see them. I was always instructed even with my very low power lasers which don’t need a variance not to scan the audience and to keep it above their heads. I stopped using the lasers when I start with intels. The intels were so bright, there...

    NAMM & AES Academy

    Thanks for the info, I have not been to NAMM in a couple of years for health reasons. This year I had planned CES but if that doesn’t I may be there. Besides I hate Vegas, like LA. If I am there again I might extend the trip and hang out a couple days.

    So you hate the scratching and "fapping"?

    One of my friends actually had the technics cd player when it first came out in his living room. He worked at a radio station in NYC but at that time 1984 no one was really thinking about using CDs for DJing. Much later I was able to get the Pioneer DVD DVJ-X1s, they were crazy expensive too...

    So you hate the scratching and "fapping"?

    Research? quite a few of us guys were actually there when it all actually happened. I remember learning how to scratch with records in the 70s and seeing Grandmaster Flash when it first started. Even back then there were DJs that scratched & those who didn’t. There were those who beat mixed and...

    DJ Expo - My spin

    Have you ever heard of a hobby. Plenty of people do things they like and not for money. And they’ll spend money to do it. And not worry about ever making a dime except to buy more stuff. In regards to bedroom DJs, most may never make dime but that doesn’t take away the fun factor. The same...

    DJ Expo - My spin

    It’s a different type of DJing done as a Art & style. That’s why there’s so many DJ schools and turntables. They don’t do it to make money but to be cool & in style. Its always been that way for over 30 years it’s just now it’s mainstream. Do your really think a turntable is the best way to...

    DJ Expo - My spin

    DJ Expo Day 2

    I believe they were DMX controlled but they weren’t actively promoting and using them. Most of the people at the show were mobile looking for the smaller stuff. I am totally unfamiliar with Jmaz but I give them high marks for their booth presentation. Their moving heads in the booth on white...

    DJ Expo Day 2

    I paid $225 for the pair with a nice case. Every look very streamline and go up to about 7ft. But I wouldn’t think about putting on anywhere near the Max load of 125lbs on them. I couldn’t tell if Those Jmaz fans actually moved any air when the blades were rotating but I’d to list them Under...

    DJ Expo Day 2

    Day two at the DJ Expo. Didn’t see anyone from this site this year. My biggest issue with the expo has always been the sound level in the exhibit hall. The past two years they have been providing earplugs but that makes conversations with vendors very difficult. It seems now they have sound...

    I found this DJNTV video refreshing: Is mixing important?

    Well, this is very interesting but I’d like to point out something to those too young & weren’t around around for the 70’s, There were DJs in the early 70’s and we DJed with cassettes, Reel to Reel, turntables without pitch and very rudimentary mixers. One if the first DJs I saw used a PA head...

    DJ Expo 2019

    Yes, I can’t believe it’s been 30 years. Made it to all 30 for at least one day. Only here for two days this year but hopefully I’ll win something. A couple of interesting items. The Yorkville Synergy speaker system. A large powered system that hit like a freight train. The whole eight box...

    Travel Fees?

    I quote with the price with travel included. The client provides the hotel, additional Labor for load in/load out if required depending on the size of the event. My service area takes in about 5-7 hr radius. If a event is over 7 hrs away that would require a travel day or a additional event if...

    Looking for a reasonably priced website designer in North Jersey.

    That’s insane to pay that much for a small site when you when don’t even get paid much to do a event. How many events would you have to do to make $600? How many of your clients would actually look for you via a website? And finally what would you even put on the website? At your level use your...

    House Party System

    What I gave is just a general impression of the speakers not a specific recommendation for house parties. I did say for other uses they would be fine. I do however have a different Philosophy on speaker systems, I want them to be scalable and/or arrayable. One system, multi uses and size...
