Making Your Disco Look Good
Wow… looking good!
When your client or guests walk into the room, do they look at your set up and say ‘WOW’?
Do you feel a sense of pride when you’ve finished setting up and you are itching to take a picture?
Or is it time to take a critical look at your set up?
Before you even press ‘play’ on an evening, guests may have already formed an opinion about you from what they can see.
Having a presentable and professional looking rig doesn’t mean spending lots of money. Often it is a case of tidying up and presenting what you already have.
A mobile disco, by its very nature of being packed down and put up many times in a year, will start to look tired. Ongoing maintenance is a necessity.
Next time you set up for an event, go to the back of the room and take a picture. Look at it from the eyes of a guest. Does it look cluttered? Are there visible cables? Are there things there that don’t need to be? Do any parts look worn?
Consider the following:
- Visible cables: make sure all cables match the colour of your frame (black or white). This includes four-ways and other multi-plugs.
- Tidy cables: Cables don’t need to hang or loop. Reusable cable ties or Velcro straps are your answer! Use gaffa tape or similar for cables running along the floor.
- Material to hide legs or cover frontage: A quick iron of material can soon change a tired frontage to a neat one.
- Flight cases and hold-alls: Tidy away from your performance area or hide them appropriately.
- Metal frame work: Touch up with enamel paint or spray paint on a regular basis.
- Star clothes or similar: check all bulbs work.
- YOU!: Be appropriately dressed for the occasion
