    Covid changed society or is it my Van?

    Everybody here said to not put my name/logo on my van. I did anyway. Now, in the 8 or 9 years I've been DJing i've gotten 2 tips I think, maybe 3. Until I got the van, or is it covid? 9 out or 10 times i"m getting tips - like 20% sized tips. Same gear, same music, same prices, some process on...

    3D printer...all sorts of projects are possible

    I've wanted a 3D printer for a long long time. Finally broke down and spent $250, and another 100 on filament to print. Got a lot of things to print off Thingiverse for my Dillon press for reloading. Then I got a tesla charger holder (finally got my tesla Y a month ago). Then it's time to...

    Outfitting a van

    Been a rough, long, profitable weekend. Car broke down, rented a car (expensive IF you can even find one to rent). And bought a van, a 2003 ford econoline cargo van in excellent condition, 122k miles, only $3500. The previous owner had outfitted it for some camping - the rear is completely...

    WTH is up with used van prices?

    With two vehicles getting older I thought maybe I'd get a 'back up' vehicle..choices being something fun (miata, mustang) or something practical, like a van for the DJ biz and other misc uses. I last looked about 3 years ago...a 70k mile used van was $5-6k or so. SAME DEALER today? 13k! (used...

    Projector choice?

    Looking to get a projector, don't have a grand to spend. What I have is an OLD 2200 lumen epson. Looking at a couple of BenQ models, 4000 lumen and under $500, new. Yes, I've read 5000 lumen is better...but they're double the price. Use is monograms at weddings and at times a 100" screen for...

    Looking for music? Here's an idea

    ON a FB group someone, as usual, asked "where do I start to get music" and it was suggested marketplace or craigslist and buy CD 'collections' from people. Interesting idea...poster claimed to get CDs as cheaply as eight cents a piece! I didn't do nearly that well, but locall got 53 CDs for...

    Weddings First wedding...we're doomed I"m afraid

    Did my first wedding since, well, a long time ago. First event since february. Outdoor venue, 130 or so guests and while the facility had signs and the manager told me masks must be worn...while her staff did wear theirs...NOBODY else did. Including the catering staff, bartending staff (no...

    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...

    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...?

    I've offered uplighting on my website, don't 'sell' it to every bride as I don't have lights. Had 3 inquiries in 4 years, quoted a price (i can rent them) and no takers. So far this year I've had 3 inquiries... SO, I'm thinking of trying cheap uplighting - 110v no battery (cost mostly), IR...

    Karaoke Karoake? Is it worth it? What gear/software?

    So I'm seeing more requests for karaoke, the local bar I do a few gigs asked if I do it... So, is it worth it? Gear: - have a couple of inexpensive mics, VDJ can do it but was thinking karafun as I have no library of songs. Figure to need a TV, perhaps 2? One to face the singer(s) and one for...

    I have a christmas party this weekend and they would like xmas music for some of the night and dance for the rest, after dinner and such. Just wondering if there are any 'dance' christmas songs? Slow maybe, it's a company party not sure how many will slow dance. So what can I say, mix after...

    Weddings Country Wedding..gonna work or be a bust?

    Just booked a wedding for April. Barn wedding. Bride wants, no, DEMANDS, only country music. No cupid shuffle, no motown. Of course no rap or hip hop. No bruno mars, MJ, uptown funk, etc. I have my doubts this will go very well.

    School & Teen Events Big Dance? What is success?

    So I posted last week inquiring where to place speakers at a HS dance. Well, turned out to be the smallest dance I've ever done. And that caused a change in setup. They marketed it for 2 weeks..didn't sell a single ticket till wedneday. typical dance there has 150-200 kids. They emailed late...

    School & Teen Events Best location for speakers?

    Doing a school dance and have 3 options for setup...used 2 in the past, not sure what's best, or distance from the wall. Setup is for 200 kids (so they always say), cafeteria (all hard surfaces, 9' or so ceiling). Which wall and how far off the wall? Gear is 2 18" powered subs and 4 12"...
