Mobile DJ Trade Tips - Issue 60 - DJ Stocking Fillers

DJ Stocking Fillers


Are you fed up with those well meant but unwanted gifts at Christmas such as the reindeer jumper or brightly coloured socks? We may have the answer!

We have compiled a list of stocking fillers suitable for DJs. There is no need to be a member to take advantage of these great gifts (although some are cheaper for AMPdj members); just pass this Infomail on to your loved one!

1. Foldaway Limbo Stick (with free storage bag)
LimboIncluding a session of limbo dancing during the evening can radically enhance the party atmosphere. Whether you are entertaining at a birthday party, wedding or anniversary, limbo appeals to all ages and can be the catalyst to get that party started.

The Limbo Stick has been designed and developed by a fellow DJ and AMPdj member with the mobile disco in mind. Both durable and quick to assemble, it can take the knocks and looks professional too. For ease of transport, it folds up neatly into its own storage bag (included).

The Limbo Stick retails at £95 and can be purchased directly from Entertainment-by-design

Jive Bunny2. Jive Bunny
Everyone loves Jive Bunny... and some of us can even remember the videos of that iconic rabbit strutting its stuff to 'In the Mood' and other memorable tunes.

The Jive Bunny cuddly toy would make an excellent gift and comes with a free Jive Bunny jigsaw puzzle & a Jive Bunny pin badge.

Order direct from the EBay store for just £10 (+£6 P&P)


3. Visual DJ
Visual DJ Are you looking for ideas to make your show stand out from the crowd, ways to engage your audience, activities to create excitement and encourage more dancers? Visual DJ is an exciting new program which utilises an Xbox Kinect sensor (available from £25) to allow dancers to interact with the screen display or TV. The program is fully customisable and lets you set it for one or more dancers, select different visuals and backgrounds, upload logos or messages and capture still pictures which are immediately downloaded to your computer. The dancers can change the controls while dancing and create various effects. An example can be seen here on YouTube

Visual DJ retails at £182. AMPdj members can take advantage of an exclusive limited offer of only £128. This gives you a lifetime licence with all future developments and updates.

4. Set of 2 Paperback Books "Promotional Games" & "Disco Games"Games Books
Including the option of games as part of your mobile disco gives you an additional selling point when promoting your service to potential clients. Games are often associated with children's parties, but equally have a place at corporate events, birthday parties and weddings.

Seasoned Mobile DJ and AMPdj member, Andrew Wylie, has written two books crammed with a variety of games that you could use at a party.

There are games suitable for children, some for adults and some that could be adapted for either. Each game has a full description and also contains tips on delivery and presentation.

Both books are an invaluable resource for both DJs introducing games for the first time and DJs looking to expand on their repertoire. They come as a pair and are priced competitively at just £6.00 (which includes postage and packaging).
