February 2017 Member Of The Month is BillESC.
BillESC is our Member Of The Month for February because of his outstanding input & advice with sound & lighting. Bill has been around here for as long as I can remember helping & giving good quality, accurate advice on an almost daily basis.
While Bill is not a DJ, he owns a sound & lighting company and has for many years. Bill has been an asset for this site & its members whether for basic or highly technical information in these area's. Whether you're needing advice for budget basic equipment or high end, top of the line sound & lighting, Bill always has a good, quality, accurate answer for you.
Bill offers retail sales & offers DJF discounts for our members, so ask Bill before buying elsewhere. i remember about 4 or 5 years ago, I bought a new light for my lighting rig & discussed it here. Bill joined the conversation & actually could have saved me money if I had bought the item from him through his discounts he offers our members. I felt like an idiot because;
1) I didn't consult with a long standing member here who offers retail sales & discounts to us,
2) because I could have gotten it at a lower price than going else where online.
So, I didn't support a long standing member & paid a higher price for the equipment as well.
We ask Bill a few questions to answer & here is the info he provided:
