The Budget Wedding Dilemma – Cake v DJ

Just last week I took a call from a bride-to-be who wanted to discuss her wedding plans for next August. Like most, she was on a tighter budget than she originally expected and was struggling to prioritise where best to spend her money for maximum effect on the day. Gone were the expensive cars, the videographer and the jazz trio, and changes to the wedding breakfast menu had also been made to bring costs down slightly. We then discussed my fee, at which she expressed her surprise that it was more expensive than she had budgeted. I explained that our experience, equipment,

Sample Mixes Update

No doubt as you’ve perused our site, you’ve noticed the small Sample Mixes player on the left hand side of each page. Go ahead and click on one of the tracks for some light musical relief! And they are reassuringly not in the ‘Jive Bunny’ style of a-million-songs-a-minute! Today we’ve added a ‘Random Party Mix’ – this is definitely an eclectic collection of tunes I somehow managed to mix to good effect….hope you like it! Remember, ScottieMix.co.uk is our associated mixing service division and can cater for almost all of your music recording/mixing requirements. Call or email for more details.

Even more new equipment!

As sure as the world still spins and DFS have a sale on, we’ve gone and bought some more top-notch equipment! Adding to our already-impressive sound system collection, we now have a fully active Electrovoice 2500w kit, easily capable of satisfying larger crowds and bigger venues. Especially good for live music too, we’ll definitely be using it in conjunction with our favourite recommended band, Columbia. I guess one day we’ll actually make some money from this DJing lark instead of reinvesting every week in new toys!

Who’s the DJ?

Nice to finally get a whole weekend to myself, and yet somehow still managed to spend most of it updating music folders or answering queries or quotes. When I did get out into the garden, the heavens cascaded upon me and prevented me from doing my favourite hobby…gardening. Huge irony for anyone that knows me. One of the questions we get asked most frequently is, “Do you accept playlists?” Of course we do, but the latest customer went on to ask whether we would accept a complete listing of music which covered the whole night (i.e 85 songs) and whether we could
