    Light Up Face Masks for your next Event! Good Up Sell Item?

    Yeah, I am officially over with trying to do anything in regards to increasing income for 2020. It is pointless. My clients keep postponing or cancelling their weddings. Just had November 14th cancel last night. They say they will get back to me with their new date which will be some point far...

    Struggling tonight, Barn venue,

    Sunday weddings are RARELY as energetic as Saturday weddings. Only exception to that might be when you do a Sunday wedding on a 3 day weekend like Labor Day Weekend or Memorial Day weekend. Outside of that, I think Sunday weddings generally have about 1/3 the energy potential of a Saturday...

    GTD let me down today

    There is ALWAYS a first time for just about everything! Were they mad the mics did not work? I am sure there is a DJ who will chime in saying they have never had that issue with their unit because it is a higher end brand....

    We got large conferences in open space halls for adults cancelling and going digital 5 months from now, yet just this week some schools down south opened up with 100% capacity , and kids walking packed hallways rubbing up against each other between classes, and packing into small class rooms...

    Light Up Face Masks for your next Event! Good Up Sell Item?

    If you as the DJ could program a light show on the audience face mask, I think that would look awesome to see on a wedding video!

    Ray Mar passed away from Covid

    Sorry to hear he passed away. :( I see posts mentioning him back from 2007 to 2009. How old was he?

    Wedding for 9/18/21 cancelled. FOB wants a refund. Yes or No, or Partial refund?

    TO be honest, if I had a full schedule, this pandemic was not happening, and My business account was very healthy, I probably would have just refunded their deposit - the CC fees I incurred, and told them to please contact me in the future when they need a Wedding DJ again. Part of me does feel...

    Wedding for 9/18/21 cancelled. FOB wants a refund. Yes or No, or Partial refund?

    Talked with the FOB. I told him the deposit was non refundable, but I do have options for them. I outlined their options: A. Throw a party. Utilize my services on any open date. Deposit transfers to the new event. They can choose any open date up until 90 days after the original date...

    Wedding for 9/18/21 cancelled. FOB wants a refund. Yes or No, or Partial refund?

    NO "WORK" has been done on this one except providing an agreement, and collecting payment. Maybe a 30 minute phone call if I remember correctly. It is 14 months away. I have held the date for basically 6 months at this point.

    Wedding for 9/18/21 cancelled. FOB wants a refund. Yes or No, or Partial refund?

    My client, the bride for 9/18/21 cancelled via Email about 12 days ago. I replied to confirm that she was indeed cancelling, or if there is a chance she could post pone to another date. She said it is cancelled - "The Wedding was called off" So, it is not due to death, or the Pandemic. The...

    Olds school huge wedding with cheese

    Sounds like a Covid Party! Was anybody wearing a 😷 ? What town/area was it. Maybe if the state website has cases shown by county/zip code data we can track the outbreak in cases over the next 3 weeks!

    School Dances will not be occurring in Maryland for the first half of upcoming school year

    I am surprised! ...Is that the entire state, or just your local county? If there are any counties who go back in September to school here in Maryland, I think it would be the far western counties Garret and Allegheny. They have smaller school populations, and are very republican counties...

    School Dances will not be occurring in Maryland for the first half of upcoming school year

    Good luck with that. I am certain that any democratic leaning states politically will be keeping their school systems closed at least in September/October. The teachers unions are pretty much forcing online distance learning to occur for a while. Their reasoning is to protect everyone...

    School Dances will not be occurring in Maryland for the first half of upcoming school year

    Baltimore County (Where I live) Just announced that they will be doing Online Distance Learning for the first half of the upcoming school year. That is through January 29th, 2021. ...All other counties in Maryland who have announced their official plans have done the same thing. I am pretty...

    DJ Summer Bash 2020

    I'm working anyway, but I would not go if I were off. ...Actually, this may not be legal to occur unless it is held outdoors in PA. OR they are planning for under 25 people total to attend, LOL. Governor Wolf stepped the gatherings rule back on Friday. No gatherings greater than 25 people...

    Got a wedding to do on July 25th.

    I have a wedding July 25th in PA...Suppose to be indoors. Well, I just saw that the PA governor just put tighter restrictions on gatherings. Venues limited to 25% capacity instead of 50%, and no gatherings over 25 people indoors. The wedding I am suppose to be doing next Saturday has 80...

    What is your niche when it comes to being a DJ?

    My new niche will be that I wear a mask, hand out free hand sanitizer, and encourage social distance dancing while wearing their masks :) I start all my dance sets with Gloria Estefan's "Put Your Mask On" 😷 View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ygiDoiu4U08

    Nightclub Closing Auction

    DO you know how long that club was in business for? I remember a Iranian DJ I knew who was a part of the car club I used to be in who use to perform there back around 2002/2003/2004 I think. He would do their Latin night often.

    DJ Expo 2020 - New Dates 11/16-19

    Man, I have been in December (Went down last December), and let me tell you...It is BAD! No FUN to be had there in the winter outside of gambling in the casinos. Probably about 15% as many people walking around in general as there are in August. And even the Casinos feel sort of lifeless...

    Prom playlist?

    2005 was an awesome year! Just got into deejaying weddings on a continual basis that year loading equipment into my Pontiac Firebird Formula and showing up to events with the loudest car in the parking lot, and having people amazed at how I fit everything into that car LOL. Moved out from the...

    Prom playlist?

    These songs suck, and almost all of that music is stupid. :) 👎 THey can listen to that crap on their devices at home any time they want. ...This is a party...Needs Party music! I would play Bruno Mars, Michael Jackson, Earth, Wind, and Fire, Danza Kuduro, ...some Usher...Then top of it off...
