CDJ Show 2015 Seminar - GETTING SMALL: Lose The Weight And Deliver More
|GETTING SMALL: Lose The Weight And Deliver More
|Mobile Beat Magazine / Stu & His Crew Pro DJ Service
DJs today are expected to do a whole lot more than just play tunes. We now lug around things like photo booths, massive cases of uplights, and maybe even video screens and monitors for our karaoke rigs; all of this on-top of our regular music playback systems! In order to stave-off buying an 18-wheeler and hiring a road crew worthy of Aerosmith, Stu Chisholm will show you what he's been doing to make his mobile show "leaner and meaner" while delivering even more to his clients. New technology has set the stage for "small but mighty" new DJ sound and lighting rigs that would've been impossible only a few years ago. See the "before" and "after" of Stu's own console make-over, and explore the latest in tiny tech to take your show to the next level of both performance and convenience!
Stu Chisholm had been collecting music since he was about eight years old and began his DJ career in 1979. He attended the Specs Howard School of Broadcast Arts and Macomb Community College under famous Michigan broadcaster, Bill Henning. Stu also interned at Detroit album rock powerhouse, WRIF.
Not content with having a full weekend calendar, Stu looked to the local nightclub scene to fill up his remaining nights, landing his first true club gig at CJ Barrymore’s in 1984. Stu occupied his daytime hours by working at a local roller rink and at the Macomb County, Michigan AM daytimer, WBRB. Originally hired as air staff, when the station re-launch was delayed by technical problems, Stu worked with the engineering team to help bring the station back online and meet FCC specifications. He cut his first commercials there, which led to some part-time voiceover work.
Stu’s nightclub experience included some of the Detroit area’s best known venues, including New York New York, The Ritz, Lipstick’s, The Landsdowne (later known as the Baja Beach Club), and the legendary Wooly Bully’s.
Stu was invited to join the writing staff of Mobile Beat Magazine in 2005, and authored his first book, “The Complete Disc Jockey: A Comprehensive Manual for the Professional DJ,” in 2008. It became the basis of Stu’s first major seminar, “Supplement Your DJ Income… WITH DJ INCOME!” at Mobile Beat DJ Show in Las Vegas. Since then, Stu has presented on the DJ Cruise and at the Canadian Disc Jockey show. He still continues to operate his mobile company, Stu & His Crew, LLC, and has a regular column and blog (at Mobilebeat.com) that is detailing his total business makeover for 2015. Stu is also a contributor to Stacy Zemon’s ProMobileDJ.com.
