Episode 152: The Dos and Don’ts of Mobile DJing
Today we discuss mobile DJing. If you spend your time DJing weddings, corporate gigs, private parties, or special events…. this episode may be invaluable to you, thanks to the wisdom shared by co-host Mo Dingo.
We talk about the importance of knowing your music, anxiety over the size of your music library, the need for using contracts, and more. We discuss the need to set aside ego, and the special considerations that come into place when DJing as a service.
Mo spends many of his weekends setting up DJ gear, talking on the mic, mixing music, and making sure someone’s special event is going off without a hitch. In today’s episode, David picks his brain about the struggles of mobile DJing, and they both break it down into a list of Dos and Don’ts.
Also, The Passionate DJ Podcast will be off for the month of August. So we have today’s episode, next week’s episode, and then we’ll be taking a little 4-week summer break. We’ll still be recording and posting videos to our YouTube channel in the meantime, so don’t go anywhere. We’ve already got some great shows planned once the podcast returns in September.
The one exception is that we’ll still produce an episode of our monthly bonus show, called Afterparty, for our Patrons. By signing up to support the show, you can help us to continue working as content creators, and bringing you more of what you love. We’re still shy of our summer goal, and need a few more people who are willing to step up and make a monthly pledge to the show… however small.
One more thing: from right now, through the end of August, you can get 15% off all Passionate DJ merch by using the coupon code “August”.
