    Dude book 3 gigs with........

    an ION EXPLORE OUTBACK with mic and the colored lights.....Yes Seriously! I went to a friends retirement party last Saturday, and the DJ was set up in the corner with the ION EXPLORE OUTBACK. I ask him was he hired to do this gig and he said yes, (he only charged $330) and they want him to do a few more events after Labor Day. OK, I'm done, just can't take it anymore. I ain't mad at the player, just mad at the game I did however give my business card to the event organizer.

    Just the Outback speaker, no iPad or laptop?
    Did he just turn on an FM station?

    What's the problem? If the DJ is playing the right music and the crowd wants to dance to it, the DJ is doing the job right. Just because a DJ uses a setup that we personally wouldn't use doesn't make the DJ a lesser one. The ONLY thing that matters is the ability to deliver to the crowd. If the DJ did that, no one should be able to complain.

    I had to google that thing, it looks scary.






    $330 seems a bit expensive, even if the DJ did his job. I wonder if he paid for his music, or just streamed youtoob/spotify through bluetooth...

    They are super common in the USA you see them at Dollar stores, Walmart, and other big boxes.
    It's the Crosley Cruiser of all in one speakers.

    I had to google that too. Suitcase turntable

    Looks like some amateur gear that you would use at a friend's barbecue during a camping expedition.

    just sucks because we keep losing business to those #DollarTreeDJs who don't register as a business, don't pay taxes, don't buy professional gear, show up in tshirt n jeans to a wedding, etc. etc. so they can almost afford to do it for 330, meanwhile, we over here being all legit & professional and losing merely based on price even with educating the bride. does get frustrating.

    There's a bigger problem if the bride doesn't see the value!
