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

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

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 Leigh

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.
