Hi everybody,

I haven't posted in a while, but I still check out the site.

Been doing weddings...

I know that I personally haven't been keeping up on event logs for each event - one seems to run right into the next. Do you have anything new to post?

Hi CJ,

Just kinda interested in hearing how the economy has been affecting the DJs here.
I've got a wedding Saturday, and then a little something each month till the end of the year, with the exception of November. I won't get rich on them, but glad for the extra income.
Around here, I'm finding B+Gs waiting till the last minute to hire. Other guys I know are repoting the same. I interviewed with a couple last Saturday for a 10/1/11 wedding ! Talk about cutting it close. They ARE a little motivated to buy though !

We have 2 this month -- then things are 'dry' -- the economy in the midwest is definitely affecting our business --

Hi DJPete,

I'm in the MidWest too, just southeast of Chicago.
I did a small wedding 2 weeks back, about 150 guests. A second marriage, so, alot more relaxed atmosphere. Big beer bunch, mostly "40 somethings" in the crowd and lotsa Disco !
I'm finding weddings getting smaller. I remember the days of easily 250 guests, now I'm finding it's pretty regular to be 100-150. Once again, this coming Saturday, I've got a younger couple with a crowd of 100.
See ya.
