I recently saw a bumper sticker on the back of a construction vehicle that said “Excellence has to be planned in advance”.  I like that.  As a full-time, professional wedding DJ & MC, I often hear from people in other professions about how great it must be to have my weeks off and just work […]

The digital revolution has changed the music industry. No longer do mobile disc jockeys carry around hundreds of CDs (I used to carry as many as 2,300 to each event!). The advent of the MP3 allows us to use hard drives the size of a handful of CDs and have the equivalent amount of music. […]
