Gig Log #003 Forerunner Entertainment: The Orchard Event Venue, DJ Tips for a wedding


(“Danger Zone” by Kenny Loggins plays) What’s up guys!? DJ Jeff here from Forerunner Entertainment
and today we’re heading all the way down yonder to a little place called Azle, Texas. Out there is an awesome venue called “The
Orchard”. So The Orchard is one of my favorite places
in all of DFW and the cool thing about them is they actually have cabins on the property
that the bride and groom can rent out for themselves, their bridal party, their family,
and any out of towners. So that way, they don’t have to drive across
the city to go stay in a hotel. So they can party all night and just head
right down the dusty trail over to say at those cabins for the evening. So cool thing about that. And TODAY guys, we are partying for THREE
HUNDRED GUESTS! So it’s going to be a lot of fun. I cannot wait to get to that party. LET’S GO! (Chill Electronic Music plays) Alright guys, so we’re almost done setting
up here at the beautiful Orchard. We’re set up outside for ceremony. There we go, there it is…White Balance,
Exposure, all that good stuff… So what I wanted to show you today is our
awesome nifty-difty wireless speaker technology. Cause if you didn’t notice behind, we’ve got
this beautiful glass wall. Now this is actually new. They used to have several different doors
going on down the way. But since they’ve added in this beautiful
glass wall, it’s made it impossible for DJs to run their cords unless they wanna have
super ugly cables running all the way in the inside, out this door, out around down this
way and then over to the side. So what I have done is we use our Sennheiser
IEM Transmitters along with the Sennheiser microphone receiver and it works flawlessly
for a wireless solution. So I am going to set it up today and as you
can see, I’ll show you here. We have got a full bar as far as the signal
goes. So we should be looking golden. We’ll see you in a bit. (Soft Piano Music plays) And now ladies and gentlemen, the moment everybody
has been waiting for. Please rise up out of your seats, on your
feet. Please join in with me as we give them the
welcome they deserve. Get those feet stomping. Get those hands clapping! Make some noise for Mr. and Mrs. Landon Wren! What’s up guys? We are now officially in cocktail hour here
at The Orchard in Azle and we do have a solid 280 to 300 guests. So they all made their way out to party with
us tonight. We’re super excited to get this thing rolling
so we’ll see ya on the other side! (“Stayin Alive” by The Bee Gees plays) (“Stop In The Name Of Love” by The Supremes plays) (“Danger Zone” by Kenny Loggins plays) (People scream and cheer) “Highway to the Danger Zone!” “Ride into the danger zone!” Alright, ladies and gentlemen…I think he’s
going for it! Yall keep making noise, come on! (People cheer louder) HE’S GOING FOR IT! (People continue to cheer) HE IS VICTORIOUS! Alright gentlemen, are you ready? Everybody help me count it down, here we go! Three! Two! One! GO! Oh, it’s an interception…We’ve got it…WE’VE
GOT IT! TOUCHDOWN! Y’all make some noise for that very happy
young man! (Happy Electronic Dance Music plays) (Music fades) (Exhales in exasperation) DONE! Guys, today was a long one. So it was a 7 hour wedding. 2 hour set up, 1 hour break down. Total 10 hour day. Now I’m not here to whine. My job rules, but I am just so exhausted today. It was an awesome wedding. About 300 people made a turn out and they
definitely turned out and turnt up… Sorry, I’m tired. That was probably super lame but I’m gonna
leave it in there cause it was an awesome wedding, guys! We had a big turn out. Everybody was out on the dance floor all night
long. Coming and going, coming and going. Different type of crowds. It’s so much fun seeing all these different
ethnicities and backgrounds and cultures and age ranges all just kind of thrown together
in one evening and trying to make everybody have a good time. And that’s…I think that’s what separates
Wedding DJs from DJs. Cause average Joe Shmoe DJ, he’s not going
to know jack about 1930’s, 1940’s, 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, 80’s… going on to todays hits. They typically focus on Top 40’s and Hip Hop. And thats ok…If you are doing that sort
of gig. That’s the Bar gigs, the Clubs…That’s fine. But do not make the mistake of thinking that
a DJ is a DJ is a DJ and go out and hire some chump on craigslist for a couple hundred bucks
who say “Oh yeah, we can make your dance floor banging, bruh!” You don’t want that for your wedding. You want some nerdy dude, who knows a lot
about a lot of different music. That’s what you want for your wedding…UNLESS
your wedding is strictly Top 40’s and Hip Hop in which case you’re cutting yourself a good
deal there. Umm, it was awesome. I’m gonna wrap this thing up. I appreciate everybody’s help from the other
Gig Log that I posted. Any kind of helpful hints, survival tips…anything
that you can tell me to make this show better for you…Let me know in the comments below
or “Hit me in the DM’s!” as what the cool kids say these days? I dunno. Umm, but yeah guys, thank you so much for
watching. It means a lot to me and hopefully we can
pull through and get these things churning and burning. This is my goal for 2019. So if this is a super old video, Hey! Welcome to the past, yo! Otherwise, we’re just gonna keep on keeping
on and hopefully we will get better with every one but I am so excited that you are here
with me. Umm, please, please… I know everybody says it and it gets super
old. But hit that subscribe button, hit that thumbs
up button if you like this video and if you wanna see more. We’ve got a lot more Gig Logs on the way. Peace! Thanks for hanging out with me, guys. Y’all have a good one, alright? I’m gonna go home!
