    I decided I need a better tripod light stand.

    I used a tripod light stand last night for a friends event. The event went very well. The issue for me I had was the light stand. It has a bar that sits on top and I could only put 3 lights on the stand instead of the 4 I wanted to put up there. The bar just wasn't long enough to fit this...

    I hope I get this gig.

    That one was great! One issue I had was with the light stand I bought to use. It's a tripod light stand I bought from Ebay. I had 4 lights I wanted to put on the stand. Only 3 lights would fit. The other light that wouldn't fit I put on the stage along with my moving head.

    I hope I get this gig.

    Right now Zoom is going on right now for a lot of meetings. Anyhow I got the gig. I normally don't get excited but for this one I am. I needed this so my spirit could feel better. I plan to surprising them with something they don't normally see. I'm going to use my light stand with some...

    What's in your wire kit?

    Now that's a classic line. Thanks I needed that laugh.

    I hope I get this gig.

    This is for the 12 step program I'm a member of. Not a regular client. This is a convention committee that had one of the members contact me about doing this event. Great advice for a regular potential client.

    I hope I get this gig.

    I got a call on Wendsday and I didn't know it. I wasn't feeling well and my phone was on vibrate instead of ringer. I noticed I had a voicemail and listened to the message on Friday. The call was for Saturday January 15th. They were calling to see if I was available for that date. I most...

    Which do you like to use uplights or a light bar?

    I have a ADJ Wifly Bar RGBA light that still works and another that doesn't. I was looking at some more lights like the one that works to use on the side of a wall to use for uplighting. I know that one is discontinued. Just wanted to know which do any of you like best. Either a light bar or...

    What online music source do you use when someone request a song at an event you're doing that you don't have?

    I understand clearly. It's a trial to get you hooked on their service. Many companies do that. Just like for example cable companies give you a discount price to get you hooked and later on the price goes up. By that time they normally know most people won't cancel the service. I've known...

    Cheap moving heads

    Now that's funny. Comparing Rockville speakers to American Audio speakers. Both are low grade speakers and I wouldn't buy either one.

    Cheap moving heads

    What I find is name brand gear has a reputation to keep up to keep people buying their products. Now those companies make lower end stuff and high grade stuff. Their low grade stuff is usually the other cheap companies high grade stuff. For example Pyramid still sells DJ gear. I have never...

    What online music source do you use when someone request a song at an event you're doing that you don't have?

    I checked out Beatsource and decided to sign up for a 30 day free trial. I liked it because it said you don't have to have a internet connection and it goes way back. Not just to a lot of the garbage of today but I found a song by The Temptations called Stay and I looked up James Brown. There...

    I bought a few things this week to use for the business.

    I see the next things I want to buy in the future. I have 2 ADJ WIFLY BAR RGBA lights that I am going use to help a friend out for a party this Saturday him and his mentor are having in Kenilworth, NJ. I forgot I had those lights until I saw them in the apartment one day. I plan on getting...

    Cheap moving heads

    I agree with Scott. I have a question. What are things you bought that you regret you did? I bought a dual cordless mic system from Gem Sound and another from Samson. That's a Sam Ash brand and they both were pure junk. I should have listened to the guy at KPODJ and spent more on quality...

    For You Line Array folks - Adele - One Night Only

    The super big sub woofer looks AWESOME. Scared of how much it would cost. Whoever brought this setup spent mega bucks. I wonder how much would you rent this system out for?

    Weddings Some DJs Have QUIT Doing Weddings And I Understand Why

    What it comes down to is how much it cost for your livelyhood and how much do you make per gig if you're to make it as a full time DJ. That includes how many events you do each year. Bob Carpenter mentioned how some people think because he charges a premium price and the amout of events he...

    Weddings Some DJs Have QUIT Doing Weddings And I Understand Why

    Bob stop putting us all in one category due to age. Why are you mostly so negative!? Please do us all a favor. Take your ego down a few notches and on your next post please post something nice for a change. Now a friend of mine is 71 and doesn't look it. Him and his mentor are doing a dance...

    I can order them next month even though it was suggested for me to not buy anything for 6 months. :laugh:

    Have you raised your prices in the last year?

    Great post and as I have said in the past it doesn't matter what it is. Some will easily pay for a product or service because they believe what they have to offer is worth it. Others for that same thing will say no way will I pay that much. It really comes down to who you target your business to.

    Where do you advertise that works well for you that gets you bookings?

    We both get calls. I try to get as much info as I can to find out the details of an event before I will agree to do the event and then relay it to my partner about the event. I know he can easily cover that kind of stuff. Now if it's something I know we both are not used to then I will talk...

    There you go with your crap again and as usual you're wrong. Sorry I missed this post. Now let me say this if you read this. Don't post anything else in a thread I make or post I put on here until you get some balls and post something you have done on here. I know others on here have said...

    I bought a few things this week to use for the business.

    I just went to Home Depot and my partner went in and bought some Velcro we can use for almost $10.00. I plan on using it tomorrow.

    Have you raised your prices in the last year?

    It's not just about raising your prices. It's about who can you find that will believe you're worth the price you're asking for. If nobody wants to book you at the price you want it doesn't matter what your price is. You can have a price of $1,000 and if nobody books you at all for that price...
