    Deposits rolling in today

    my local bar is opening today for the first time in 2 weeks, 3-8pm, for to-go orders only. most bars here tried that and closed for lack of business to justify keeping the doors open. I've seen 3 inquiries in 2 weeks...I can't even lowball folks to get work at that rate LOL - one I replied, one...

    Talked to a friend today. She's working from home with her 3 year old as part of PA's closure was ALL daycares. She got a call from her daycare telling her she has to pay full price for every week even if the child isn't there as they need to keep paying their employees. She said no, i'm not...

    First Cancelation because of Corona Virus

    How many will change their plans? I mean, to simple marriage and move on? 5%? 20%? If you planned a wedding and didn't yet pay for everything, now you have to re-do it all and I"m sure some will lose deposits, what date are you gonna be stuck with? A Tuesday in august? LOL And if you were outta...

    First Cancelation because of Corona Virus

    Not here anymore...the governor (pa) has shut down all non-essential businesses. So you can't legally perform. Venues are not allowed to be open. Restaurants can do drive thru and pickup only, or delivery. And NONE are allowing the public inside - they bring it to you in your car. IF they are...

    AHA! I may have 'fixed' my dmxgo

    I'm using a firetablet, the mydmxgo box, donner recivers for normal lighting and the chinese/rockwedges have the receivers built in. App wise i"m using mydmxgo and lightrider - they are the same thing, use the same 'account' which you need if you use profile builder to 'make' your light...

    Pennsylvania Governor Wolf Orders ALL non Essential Businesses to close today at 8 p.m.

    Final meeting for 4/18 wedding and the bride is a nurse. What she is being told is that if we all 'shelter in place' for 14 days the virus will die out - it can't live outside a body for more than 3 or 4 days. And if you're sick you'll recover in less than 14 days. If you're not showing symptoms...

    AHA! I may have 'fixed' my dmxgo

    Then why does it NOT connect, or disconnect often - unless I hit the up button to 7 or 11 then it becomes reliable? I updated it's firmware and changed the default channel. I also got a wifi channel 'reader' app for my phone - it looks at wifi channels in use, distance, strength and recomends...

    AHA! I may have 'fixed' my dmxgo

    the up/down buttons on it DO change the channel. The dimmer does nothing as far as I can tell. Maybe you hold the dimmer and use the up/down?

    AHA! I may have 'fixed' my dmxgo

    Never worked reliably..it would work for a minute then quit. Since I got my chinese rockwedges they have no DMX cable, it's their remote control or wifi... I've had ZERO luck making them do ANYTHING, so I dug out an older par and it won't work either, which got me googling. Seems the DMXgo box...

    First Cancelation because of Corona Virus

    Well, PA just shut down ALL bars and restaurants, schools, casinos and 'non essential businesses'. I was out today on a 90 minute each way trip to get a car...needed to take a leak. NOTHING was open...found a gas station with a restroom - I was 5th in line there. Stopped at walmart on the way...

    Controlling Event LIghting From ADJ MyDMX Go

    I've had bad luck with it at home...not gona try it live at an event till i'm sure it's reliable. Many of my lights are NOT in the program, so I have to manually program them and it's a lot of trial and error. I have it all connect, setup up a sequence we'll call it, and wow, nice. turn it all...

    What 'upcharge' would you put on this request?

    seek counseling...that can be a sign of manic-depression. As for the money..have you seen Taso's youtube for DJ's stuff? 50 gigs a year at $3000 a gig...he has the money to live well. As for your other 'issues' I see folks talk about here, buy ONE or TWO sets of gear (speakers, mixers, etc -...

    What 'upcharge' would you put on this request?

    Most folks - 80-90% - follow a typical bride budget. Some will blow the budget on what THEY value most - could be the photogapher or DJ or soemthing else. Others will skimp on stuff that matters little to them. I've seen over the top cakes, and once where the cake was 3 tiers - 2 styrofoam and...

    What 'upcharge' would you put on this request?

    last year was the third wettest year here ever, the year before the wettest on record, and this year is starting out even wetter than either of those. and what fun is a barn wedding unless you have ceremony outside! Mud? Humidity? and they don't put a/c in barns! Maybe I should charge more for...

    What 'upcharge' would you put on this request?

    They live local to me, found me online. Some folks prefer to spend local (wish more did!)>

    What 'upcharge' would you put on this request?

    As a photographer when I started I offered rehearsal 'coverage' or meeting, etc. Found out it's a grand waste of time. Seems about 90% of the time the wedding changes something - they come in a different door or more often forget some part of the ceremony (like the uncle singing). As for DJ...

    What 'upcharge' would you put on this request?

    Most weddings with same site ceremony and an extra hour would be 950, add in uplighting and 1200 ish. I quoted 1695. I'm assuming her mind was "a dj is 500" (seems to be the mentality here). So my price is triple that... Could be she's just thinking/planning still...

    What 'upcharge' would you put on this request?

    yeah, i'm about the same idea... Figure 4 hour drive to get there, 3 hour setup - ceremony, main and uplighting in a place you've never been, so pretty much wanna be there the night before as there is what, 7 or 8 hours of the night to go plus teardown. And i'm not wanting to drive 4 hours...

    What 'upcharge' would you put on this request?

    I got a local bride that is getting married in New River Gorge WV request a quote/services for her wedding... OK, she said it's a DOUBLE wedding, NRG is 4 hours ONE WAY from my location (which she knows). She wants ceremony outside, 6 hours reception inside, uplighting. Plus, it's a double...

    Cheap uplighting...?

    shape is triangular and said to fit inside a truss triangle space. Brightness..depends what you need. IN a dark room anythign is bright. If you need outside or use in a bright room then you may need more/bigger/brighter lighting. When I do photography and use a flash to say, do senior...

    China is shut down!

    So I ordered my uplights from both in china and asked when might i see them. They replied, and I quote: So, I guess all of China is shut down for a while. I wonder what the backlog will be, if shelves will be empty here?

    Cheap uplighting...?

    I've made up most of my lighting 'containers', have some things in bags and some in hard cases. Most of the time I load my car (outback) and use a cosco 4 wheel dolly at the venue. I MUCH prefer hard cases that I can stack on there. Soft cases tend to fall off... For bigger gigs I use my cargo...
