    TBF that's on you.

    In the initial blast everyone got moved because it was the right thing to do and they weren't going ahead by any stretch of the imagination.

    Someone at this stage asking to...

    Weird situation just now. I've booked a handful of almost 4 figure fee weddings for September (one dude is convinced he's having 200 evening guests) whilst everyone earlier in the Summer is slowly...

    Secured another booking yesterday within 30 minutes of my quote being sent out.

    I've decided to crunch the numbers for next year (2021 still looking like a bust up here unless Sturgeon gets her...
  5. My policy is if it doesn't make me faster,...

    My policy is if it doesn't make me faster, lighter or richer I don't buy it - as cool a piece of gear as the Prime is, it's not going to do any of those.
  6. That's not on the agenda up here any time soon....

    That's not on the agenda up here any time soon. We weren't allowed jukeboxes (I dunno how much truth there is to it but there were claims we were the only country in the world with that restriction...
  7. The problem is, a lot of the time, that decision...

    The problem is, a lot of the time, that decision is being made at the behest of the venue, they'd much rather have a client move to next year (even if it could have gone ahead, with music) so they've...
  8. The crux of it, in my opinion, comes down to can...

    The crux of it, in my opinion, comes down to can they have live music. Numbers are largely irrelevant - if you can't perform then it's straight forward enough. If you can then contractually you...

    I'd written a pretty long response last night but it's disappeared into the ether when I hit post for some reason!

    Anyways. Someone who is seriously considering booking me at my fees isn't all of...

    Maybe an opportunity? The more air there is between yourself and otgers, the easier it is to convert imo.

    I've no clue what you charge but I'd argue the margins of say a 100-250 difference in...

    I put my prices up considerably last January :rolleyes: I'm now charging a similar price for evening's than I previously was for all day shots and I'm now one of if not the most expensive wedding DJ...

    I started lateral flow testing through work yesterday - you need to wait 30 minutes before posting a result (and my first was void so had to do it again, since I'd had eaten and drank I had to wait...

    Yeah I know the pitfalls of that and I'll need to discuss it with the bank when the time comes but it sounds like they were clamping down on doing that. A pal of mine tried, the bank said no so he...

    I was VERY close to just seeing out all of my dates and chucking it all in come March next year, that's a pretty big change no? :D

    I put my prices up quite a bit in *drumroll* January last year....

    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...

    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...

    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. :(

    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...
