Stage Presence – How to Stand Out From The Rest
In today’s saturated DJ market it’s essential to set yourself apart by offering a unique stage presence. The DJ Kings was started nearly 15 years ago and when I was first getting started I would go above and beyond to create a unique look just to stand out. Whether it was bringing some extra lighting to up light behind my booth or finding some fabric to stretch out across the DJ table these things when done properly really can make a great first impression.
The majority of DJ’s are in the mindset of the less is more. The less gear I have to bring the faster I can set up and the quicker I can tear down. These DJ’s have to realize that when you are performing at an event, you are also advertising yourself as a DJ and you as a company. A standard folding table with your mixer and computer, wires and gear all exposed is just a plain eye sore.
Below are 5 recommended setup additions that will please your clients and make you stand out from the rest.
