A helpful word on wedding budgets. PART 1

It’s that time of year again.  The time when most couples have been recently engaged, and are on the path to begin planning their wedding.  This is a new experience for most couples, and they don’t know where to start, or the big question on their minds are usually, “How much does everything cost?” The days of tradition where the family-of-the-bride funds the event seems to be fading too with more couples funding their wedding themselves.  Also, the expectations at weddings has

Emcee skills 2. Musical knowledge and ability 3. Customer Service 4. Equipment used This is 100% true, and we agree. For the purpose of this blog entry we’re going to focus on that number 2 spot.  This is an important, and often overlooked skill when it comes

We’ve told you before that professional musicians and touring groups the world over use the same speaker system we use.  We don’t cut corners, and neither do these other professionals.  Why does this matter?  It matters because sound clarity is so important to how pleasurable your experience is at an event.  You can have the best DJ/emcee in the world, but if they’re coming through what sounds like a tin can, or a crumpling paper bag, you won’t stick around long
