This is my first post on my new blog (or any blog as a matter of fact). I decided to start blogging so that I could have a record of my thoughts, observations and ideas related to the many events I DJ in the Edmonton and Alberta area throughout the year.
The vast majority of these events are weddings. I probably DJ at least 40 weddings a year on average, and have been doing it for almost 14 years, so I have seen lots of things at weddings that work and quite a few that don't. I have also done hundreds of Christmas functions and every other type of event you might imagine (I've lost count, but I've probably played at well over 500 events). I thought I would like to start keeping a blog of these for myself and anybody else that might care.
Obviously I have developed my own thoughts at what makes the dance aspect of a wedding more likely to be a success, but I do get to see lots of other things happening at weddings as well because I'm there from before the guests arrive for the reception until after everyone is gone. I am going to put a link to this blog on my website http://www.soundsationsmusic.com so anyone checking out DJ services there can link to the blog for my insights.
Anyway, I hope to be able to post to the blog often as I am bursting with ideas on this subject. I'll have to sign off now though because it's too hard to type while my 6 year old is sitting on my lap.
