Hard Drives
By The Numbers

The best way we know of to explain large numbers (digital storage, the national debt, Mark Zuckerberg's net worth), is to imagine taking something from everyday life that's extremely small and seeing how big it gets when you pile it up on top of itself over and over again. For example, a piece of paper is pretty thin... on the order of 0.005 inches thick. But if you took a trillion pieces of paper and piled them on top of each other, your pile would be over 7800 miles high. If you then took that 7800 miles of paper and spread it around the Earth's equator, it would wrap around the Earth a little over three times!

Or fit on a single 1 terabyte (TB) hard drive. Check this out.

What else will a terabyte hold? Assuming 10MB songs, 2MB pictures, and 200MB HD music video:
  • 100,000 songs
  • 500,000 pictures
  • 5,000 HD music videos (or 1000 movies or 2,000 hour-long TV shows or any combination thereof)
  • Leaving an ample space for essential programs like Serato, Virtual DJ and Call of Duty Black Ops 2.
And how about these numbers? With the cost of a 1 TB hard drive falling well below $100.00 your chances of earning more by playing more have never been better.

Ready to find out how we can fill that hard drive - and your events calendar - up? Give us a call or click at 407-331-3600 or

DJ Rod Nadigel's
Playing the name game to win

Cheap, whack or too generic, off-the-rack DJ drops can pose a dilemma: As DJs we want to get our name out there; we don't want to come off like a clown blowing an air horn doing it.

"Branding is crucial for DJs," says DJ Rob Nadigel of "You can't afford to drop the same drops everyone else is using. Our custom drops are created by real DJs, not some inexperienced audio engineer. We know what works to give your show maximum heart-pounding impact - intros, outros, mix sessions, our custom production uses original imaging to produce the impact you need."

Rob is ready to put his custom drops where his wallet is with some choice giveaways -- including four FREE custom drops for one lucky winner.

The Contest:Give a listen to Rob's "Name That Tune" sampler, identify each song and artist, & enter your picks on Rob's Facebook page. Rob will announce 3 winners chosen at random from all correct entries on May 31st. Watch the page to see if your name is "dropped"!

Prizes include: 3rd Place: one (1) free business card design; 2nd Place: one (1) free custom DJ logo; and four (4) FREE custom DJ drops for the 1st place winner.

[back to top ↑]'s Stacy Zemon Presents...
Capitalize on Your Competitors' Strengths

"We DJs are quick to praise the quality of our own services and the creativity of our unique selling points" say's DJ Success Coach Stacy Zemon. "Many a mobile is equally quick to criticize competitors in an effort to gain market share."

Inflated egos have killed more than their share of giants in every industry. All that backslapping feels good internally, but it doesn't necessarily improve your marketing strategy.

What if, instead of picking apart their weaknesses, you celebrated your competition in the morning meeting? Consider asking your team, "If we worked for XYZ Entertainment, how would we sell their services against our own and leverage their position in the market?

"By examining the strengths of your competitors, you might discover new insights to market your own company better. [Read More]
