Well I did a Site Visit a few months ago for a Wedding I will be DJing on 12/26/2014. The Client, future Bride and Groom and Venue Manager were all there. We agreed where I was going to setup . A long wall that has Jacks for Video as well as Audio Feed if needed. I was wary at the time because I felt for sure that they would want to use it as the Head Table area. With that confirmation, I saw no need to draw any more alternatives. Today I received a new diagram, the Venue Manager has completely redone the room and you guessed it, DJ is off to the side. The Head Table faces the people as it should. The DJ is to be in an area to the left of the head table. The Dance Floor is off centered and closer to the DJ area. The speakers will be facing across the room instead of towards the audience. I sent off an e-mail to the Client and Venue expressing my concerns, then a Phone Call to the Client who is out of town. She told me to call the Venue and set up an appointment and to tell him what I want. I can take the side wall instead of the first choice but they will need to reposition the Dance floor and allow me a greater spread with no tables Close to to the speakers. At the time of the Site Visit not only was the Venue Manager late getting to the meeting but acted nonchalant. It was not a good sign, I have played that Venue before but in another room downstairs. Funny thing is that I have two more Weddings to do there next year. LOL Contracts are already signed. Attached are some Pics I took at the Site visit earlier this year before I accepted the Gig. This is the wall where it was agreed I would be. It faces the Main Entrance This is the View from the Balcony Wall: The Main wall is on left and Main Entrance on Right Main Entry on Right View from Stage /Main Wall lopoking towards the Entrance where I can have a Perfect View of the Wedding Party coming up the stairs and then in. Balcony Wall which is OK for me too if they can center the Dance Floor Better. Personally I think its a better backdrop for a Head Table. They said they may need Video and this Panel is set on the Main wall so I will be far from it if I have to setup elsewhere. If I am far then they get no Video. There are installed Wide Screen TVs in the room. Even with all this space, there are chaps who come in and still setup their area with a six foot table and speakers on each end like headphones. Its no wonder that the Venue Managers don't allow much space for DJ Setup. Can't say I blame them. I just have to educate them. I have an appointment with the Manager tomorrow morning. Lets see what happens. Site Visits my friends are important.
