04/05/2019

BEFORE YOU CHOOSE A DJ ... be sure he isn't using pirated or illegal music sources such as Spotify, YouTube, Soundcloud and other "free" sites. Professional DJs pay for their music via a legal distribution services such as Promo Only (my favorite) ... Top Hits USA ... and BPM Supreme. So the record labels and the artists receive a percentage of my investment and they are encouraged to continue to produce music that I can play for my clients.

ALSO ... your DJ should have ... 1) A minimum of $1,000,000 in liability insurance ... 2) A current business license.

Don't leave yourself and your venue liable by hiring the cheapest DJ (who probably doesn't have ANY of the three assets above.) In the world of MC / DJs, you truly do "get what you pay for" and $300 wedding DJs are a recipe for disaster! Always budget for $1,000+ for a Saturday night - it's a great investment in your event and the happiness of your guests!

Integrity is important!

THE GREAT RACE: The Largest Pie Fight Ever Filmed!

In honor of International Pi Day 2019, I present the greatest pie-throwing scene in movie history, in "The Great Race," with Tony Curtis, Natalie Wood, Jack Lemmon, Peter Falk and an amazing cast. The pie-light of the clip is at 2:00, when Peter Falk (Max) enters the Royal Bakery, looking for Professor Fate (Lemmon).
You'll watch this more than once! :-)

02/01/2019

DJs in the HUGE Atlanta market face a special set of challenges in order to survive and thrive in North Georgia. But amazing opportunities await for those willing to WORK and innovate, and this story in DJ Times (one of the national publications of the DJ industry in America), shows how the creative use of brands and "ducks" by one ordinary DJ in Marietta, GA helped to propel him to the top tier of the DJ entertainers in this area.
(Now awkwardly switching to first person 😄) ...
I never sought the national spotlight or fame beyond Georgia and the southeast US. I'm always looking to improve and consult my mentors for their guidance, and have never considered myself to be a "role model" to others. The respect and love of my clients is preferred to the admiration or notoriety of my peers across the country. But their respect is greatly appreciated!
Having a solid reputation as an entertainer has helped me to create incredible relationships with people from both coasts. I am humbled and flattered that DJ TImes chose me to represent the Atlanta and North Georgia markets in their story.
After 30 years in business, now I am focusing on more "sharing" of the knowledge I've accumulated, following the examples of Sean "Big Daddy" McKee, Robbie Britton, Jim Cerone, Ben Stowe, Randy Bartlett, Hugo Drax, Steven Dail, and dozens of my peers who I admire so much! I will even help my colleagues in my own market, because it's simply the right thing to do!
Many thanks to DJ Times Editor Jim Tremayne, writer Stu Kearns, Brian O'Connor and Darryl "Jake" Jacobsen for helping to tell the story of the Atlanta market and my 29-year journey in this beautiful part of the country!

Here’s How Much You Should Budget for Your Reception Music

New statistics regarding the pricing of live bands vs. DJs have just been published by The Knot. These are just nationwide averages ... the North Georgia / Atlanta market rates are approximately 15-17% higher.

And these are just AVERAGE rates ... excellent interactive DJs with strong MC skills will be even higher, depending on the time of the year and the day of the week.

If the music, MC, energy and FUN factor are important to you, budget at least $1600 for your DJ / MC on a Saturday night in North Georgia / Atlanta.
