Storymix offers affordable, novelty video package

On 16, Jul 2012 | No Comments | In DJs, Featured Weddings | By CMG

DJ Scott Jones was recently introduced to a unique, novelty wedding service called Storymix. With this budget-friendly process, wedding guests can get involved in making a fun, professionally edited wedding video from their own perspective.

Using up to 5 of Storymix’s HD handheld cameras or a complimentary iPhone app, anyone at the wedding, rehearsal or honeymoon can capture video clips throughout the day. You then return the cameras and/or upload the video and pick a theme. Storymix takes all that video and allows you to personalize it online, or they will edit it for you. The result isn’t a replacement for a videographer’s cinematic or documentary-style wedding video, but is an interactive and affordable way to get another perspective of an entire wedding experience.

Storymix doesn’t just cater to weddings, either. Their service is a great way to package, memorialize and present a corporate event, family vacation, Bar Mitzva, or life milestone.

Below is sample of the finished product for one of our recent brides. DJ Scott Jones can be spotted towards the end!

Simple Math: Filling the Dance Floor a Year Ahead of Time

On 03, Feb 2012 | No Comments | In DJs, Featured | By CMG

The equation really is simple math:

Focus on Guests + Delivery of Great Guest Experience = Desired Behavior (Dancing)

But not everyone is good at math, so class begins now – a year before the test.

There are so many factors that can contribute to (or take away from) a full dance floor at a wedding reception or other special event.  Many of these factors have nothing to do with the DJ.  Time and location of the actual ceremony, venue of the reception, weather, parking, traffic all have an influence on the guest experience and therefore on the dance floor itself.  Obviously, we can’t control all of these things, but as entertainment consultants we have to help clients become aware of these factors, control whatever can be controlled and adapt them to contribute to a full dance floor.  This takes careful planning from the very beginning of the planning process.  The actual event may be a year from now, but because there are so many things – let’s call them “dance floor factors” – that can be controlled and need to be planned far in advance, our team’s job is to start filling the dance floor…now.

Past groom sends his DJ a love letter after attending a friend’s wedding

On 24, Oct 2011 | One Comment | In DJs, Featured | By CMG

Don’t know what you got till it’s gone. That’s what one of our past grooms realized when he went to his friend’s wedding a few months after his own.

Jonathan Neidhart got married in August and hired DJ Scott Jones. He had a great time, but took it for granted.

Two months later, Jonathan attended the wedding of one of his friends. At the reception, he didn’t find himself dancing or mingling or celebrating his friend’s new life. Instead, he found himself missing the DJ from his own wedding.  So, Jonathan pulled out his iPhone and sent this message to Scott:

Hey Scott!!

Just wanted to send you a note to tell you how much we truly appreciated your DJ services at our wedding on August 13, 2011… Jaime and I are currently at a wedding reception, and the DJ here is terrible… We never really realized how much work it took to be a good DJ, and we are really thankful that we hired you as our DJ. If we ever need a DJ for any other event that we have, you’ll definitely be the one we call!!

Thanks again for everything!!

Your Friend,

Jonathan Neidhart

JBP’s Geoff Contributing to Mobile Beat Online Magazine

On 16, Oct 2011 | No Comments | In DJs, Featured | By CMG

Geoff Short of Jerry Bruno Productions is proud to be a new contributing blogger for Mobile Beat Magazine online.  Mobile Beat is a leading DJ industry publication and Geoff will be writing various articles relating to the DJ business periodically.  Here is a Geoff’s latest Mobile Beat Blog entry:

Like many DJs, I have a varied entertainment background.  Being a well-rounded performer can only help a DJ be a more effective entertainer.  In addition to being a DJ, I’m a singer and currently the Band Leader of a 10-piece wedding band, but I have also spent a lifetime performing in live musical theatre productions and have directed them as well. So it’s not surprising that I often look at the profession – and, indeed, the art – of DJing through the lens of other performing art forms, especially theatre which naturally has a lot in common with DJing – rehearsal, public speaking, interaction with a live audience and technical elements including live sound reinforcement and of course, creative lighting.

Typical DJ gigs don’t involve curtain calls, but a look at some of the basic ways lighting is used in live theatre productions might get us closer to a standing ovation at the end of the night.

I was just reading a thread on one of the seemingly infinite online DJ forums.  This particular discussion caught my attention because it posed a question I’ve thought a lot about lately. Whether or not modern DJs actually need tons of state-of-the-art gear many of us seem obsessed with to be truly great entertainers.   I am still fairly new to the mobile DJ scene so it feels like I still have an objective point of view about the DJ profession.  I’ve been amazed at how much focus there has been in the mobile DJ community on gear that doesn’t actually make any music – specifically lighting.

I have a theory.  We dig toys.
