Vice-Chair DJ Dave

Welcome Bay Area Wedding Professionals to our new and improved website!  For those of you that aren’t social media savvy, a blog is simply a means of networking on line. It is usually started by a subject matter, expert posting a topic and followed by comments from you the blogging public. With that in mind I am proud to be the second post for our BAWP BLOG!

Howdy Folks! My name is David Robertson and I am your BAWP Vice Chairman. I serve at the pleasure of the board as an intern to the current BAWP Chairman, Amy Dougherty. At the end of her term I will assume the office of Chairman.

I am the founder and owner of Musical Cheers DJ’s. In business for over 35 years, Musical Cheers is one of Houston’s oldest and finest disc jockey companies. It’s our attention to detail and quality of service that has us listed as preferred vendors at many BAWP and other Houston wedding venues. We have been the preferred Disc Jockeys at Butler’s Courtyard for over 14 years!  As a small father and son company, we focus on doing what we love – playing great music. We don’t have linens, pipe and drape, photo booths, or big warehouse offices. We do have all professional top of the line equipment, endless music libraries, and very affordable prices. We believe that no bride should go without music on her wedding day due to budget. How can we be of service to your brides?

And now my BLOG topic. I know most of you have seen the Verizon commercial where the spokesman says his bit and then drops the microphone on the floor. Now every best man or maid of honor, thinks it’s funny to do a microphone drop at the end of his toast! What’s not so funny is a professional disc jockey microphone costs anywhere from six hundred to over a thousand dollars! Dropping them on the floor usually breaks them, resulting in down time to hook up a new mike and the bride and groom getting a very expensive bill for damage to equipment. Trust me no one likes to use their honeymoon money to pay for microphone replacement. Many local DJ’s are now warning bridal parties up front of their financial liability for damage and talking about charging a damage deposit until this craziness passes. As a coordinator or venue owner you can help by educating your wedding clients on not just microphone drops, but damage in general. Hopefully this will result in less breakage and happy brides and grooms.
