That’s right…here we go. It has so been too long & so much has been going on that it’s hard to stop and “smell the gerberas" (everyone says roses) and catch up! We sure smelled something on one of our most recent BIG jobs, where we did an eight foot light truss, took care of the A/V & had our way with a fog machine!
It was actually a pretty challenging night, as we began setup approximately eight and a half hours before show time, and two of the three pieces of equipment we rented decided to take a break and not work!! This is why we get to jobs earl y & have back-up equipment options, so we can deal with any unforeseen issues—both of these items should’ve worked and it’s extremely unusual for two major pieces of equipment to go haywire at the same job. Fortunately, we called the company for the FOG machine (because it was electrocuting the event staff) and they delivered a new machine, arriving just in time (with none to spare) for us to start the fog when the guests of honor entered the party. The other piece of equipment that kicked the bucket was also replaced with just minutes to spare by a very kind venue that was willing to loan us their projector…ugh!!
While we were scrambling behind the scenes, the clients never became aware of the problems, because we delivered right in time & it wound up being an excellent night that ended with a Marilyn Monroe drag performer jumping out of a cake and surprising the guests of honor!!
Yet again, we’ve been busy little bees and having so much fun taking photos of ourselves...in.. our… new…PHOTOBOOTH! Oh Yeah, Sound Choice Events is now the proud owner of a brand new shiny photo-booth and everyone from Wedding clients to Sweet Sixteen clients are eating it up! What better way for your guests to take home a little bit of your celebration as a memory (and even leaves one for you)?! And, we’ve even got props to boot; funky hats, outrageous sunglasses and beads galore to give your guests a chance to yuck it up and have a little more fun! It’s definitely been a great addition to our already kickin collection of equipment & such a blast to watch everyone enjoying it!!
Jobs have been plenty recently and all over the map, literally and figuratively. We’ve been everywhere from New Hampshire to Rhode Island & in-between doing weddings, mitzvahs, corporate parties and birthdays.
Speaking of the map, Sound Choice attended the DJ Expo in Atlantic City just a few weeks ago & picked up some really good information AND some new fun things to play with (new equipment yay!).
Our office as well has been busier than a go-go dancer (how busy is that?) as we continue with our Social Media push and updating the Sound Choice website to make it easy as pie for you to locate all the fantastic services we offer!
Signing off for tonight…remember to check out our Facebook page to see photos of all our most recent jobs!
