We’ve gone around the Sun once again, so it’s time for a quick review of the past twelve months in the life of this DJ…
Our industry is still reeling from the aftershocks of Covid, so 2023 was always gonna be a tough year for weddings, as most people plan 2-3 years ahead. It didn’t come as much of a shock that wedding reception gigs were down by about 25%, but I am part of a fantastic network of DJs who provide the finest quality acts for some very nice Essex & Suffolk venues, so I made it through unscathed! A lot of part-time mobile DJs have fallen away since Covid in 2020, but I’m very proud to still be a fully-professional DJ (and quiz host/writer) and I’m excited about the coming year. August Saturdays are almost fully booked already, and even January (traditionally a very quiet time for entertainment) is providing a respectable month’s wages.
On the QuizHire side of things, I’m hoping to add another two residency quiz shows to the calendar. It means a lot of writing but I really enjoy creating new and totally unique quizzes for my clients. I’m still proud of the fact that I have never used exactly the same quiz twice!
So, as we count down the final few days of 2023, I would like to wish you all a very, very Happy New Year and hope to see you soon on my dance floor!
