    I've secured 5 dates from the start of the year for 2022 and 23.


    I put my prices up considerably this time last year (good timing huh) but I've decided to stick with them and people are still...
  2. That's pretty much where I've been at for years -...

    That's pretty much where I've been at for years - it's liberating not to feel the need to do any gig going. I only ever took on jobs I didn't fancy to help out friends.

    Gear wise, I've got a...

    I'm sick of hearing "you're the only supplier that........" Sheila that's doing the hair and nails can run her business anyway she sees fit, I'll run mine as I do.

    Was that aimed at me?

    I've been saying from day 1 we should be watching our own backs and I have been. I had 3 people over the weekend with weddings at the back end of next year enquire about...

    I'm assuming so they can provide a bigger package for more guests...

    There's a new one:

    Our venue has asked us to move date so why should we lose our deposit with you if you can't do the new one?



    Because my t's and c's cover government guidelines, not venue...

    I could but money talks. Moving forward I'd be very happy doing 10-20 of these kind of bookings per year at these rates.

    I just had someone book a full day shot for June 2022 which is good though it does mean my ":Censored::Censored::Censored::Censored: this, I'm jacking it in after tax year 2020-21" plan is well and...

    Cash flow is key and these venues with massive operating and fixed costs only being able to operate at a fraction of their capacity is a disaster. I've seen a venue today offering a 20 person package...

    That's another venue up here just gone to the wall and it won't be the last. :(
  11. See the chat from earlier in the week. Me...

    See the chat from earlier in the week.

    Me retaining the booking fees isn't an underhanded way to cash in, it's to protect the business, ensure fairness for all current and future clients AND...

    I'm not arguing - we've consensus in idem i.e. we've both agreed to the terms in my contract which is there to protect both parties for various eventualities. If people are going to get the bit...
  13. I'm coming at it with the reverse outlook - the...

    I'm coming at it with the reverse outlook - the way ti keep things ckear and simple is to work to the terms if tge contract as it pertains to the client at whatever time they seek to go against them....
  14. Cancellation as far as my t's and c's are...

    Cancellation as far as my t's and c's are concerned - there's nothing just now saying we won't have a normal wedding in October next year otherwise what's the point of even having a contract in the...
  15. Just had someone for October next year ask to...

    Just had someone for October next year ask to move to October 2022.
  16. A DJ friend of mine has been doing deliveries for...

    A DJ friend of mine has been doing deliveries for Amazon and he's like a walking ghost.

    I bump into his missus walking the dogs and she barely sees him, the last time I did actually see him he'd...

    Thanks to a little part promotion I've got at work, I can WFH certain days.

    I'm at home today, the sun is shinning, Mrs JBJ has just fed me, there's beer in the fridge, the famous Glasgow Rangers...

    I teach a fairly specialist type of ASN pupil. I'd be willing to bet they'd even cut Maths and English jobs before mine and they're not going to do that either.
  19. Even before this the idea of going full time...

    Even before this the idea of going full time never appealed. It would have given me more time but I like having something to get out of bed for and I hate the idea of the DJing turning into a job as...
  20. Favour - my cousin is on the radio

    Between me, my twin and him, one of us had to turn out a cool DJ I suppose????

    He just got a show banging out old skool tunes on 106fm in Belfast.

    They had some tech issues last night so you...
  21. Ah well that's the last of my 2020 couples...

    Ah well that's the last of my 2020 couples cancelled today.

    If nothing else, next years tax return will be a doddle.
  22. That would ultimately be up to a judge to decide....

    That would ultimately be up to a judge to decide. The CMA (despite what numerous facebook bride legal experts will assert) is purely setting out guidance - if push came to shove, it would go to civil...

    March to September actually which leads on to my point that people rescheduling now for the first part of2021 at least are doing so knowing there's a good chance covid will impact their big day.
  24. As far as I'm concerned nothing has changed at my...

    As far as I'm concerned nothing has changed at my end from the statement.

    Unless you're marrying woth200+ people and I need to hire sound, you're getting the same service wether you have 10 guests...

    This. I've booked a couple of weddings for 2021 in the past week or so.

    Not sure if you seen it or not but there was a point made in that CMA statement about people booking / moving weddings...
