First post here (DJ forums). I'm a sound tech with lots of live audio experience, but I want to put my system to work and try to make some money. I'm thinking about becoming a local, portable dj for weddings, corporate events and parties.
I'm at a bit of a loss as to where to start. I see dj schools listed online, and I've just started going to dj forums.
The weddings I've been to where they had a dj simply had a guy playing recorded music (requests), through a small system with some dance lights. Is this a place to start? I've watched some Youtube vid's showing the real DJ's in action - which looks fun and interesting. I'm just looking for some advise here.
I'm partial to using digital equipment, but I see many are using the dual analog decks. Is there a consensus?
