Hey there! That sounded very American didn't it? Well I felt like exclaiming as it's been a while since I've blogged here. Well I've been working on myorganic health foods site as well as other things.
We've been to Germany to see Becky's mum and she's still there in hospital. (Becky, not her mum) Nothing stopping me from saying that now, as she's had the operation and all went well.Thank god, it was a worrying time! One funny thing to come out of it was that I had to take the hire car back to Hamburg from Bremen without Becky and all was going well until I hit a traffic jam. I waited and waited not worried about the time as I was way too early in order to get the paperwork sorted with the car before closing time in Hamburg at 18:00 when the actual flight didn't leave until about 21:00. Well as the jam cleared I looked at the sat-nav and noticed to my horror that it had crashed and only had about four vertical lines of grey on the screen! Oh crap. No map. No idea of location. Try as I might I couldn't turn the damn thing off to re-boot! So I'm in a queu of traffic and I decide to head for Bremen and see if I can pull over somewhere. This I did and through sheer rebeliousness, I'd smuggled my tiny (can't do without it) swiss army knife in the hand luggage (which is all I had). I pulled out the tooth pick and whittled it down to a point, so I could access the hole in which the reset button resided. And thank god it worked! About 6 frantic minutes were passed while I waited for it to come back online and then it was as good as new for me to proceed along the worst autobahn in Germany today, with more roadworks, treacherous narrow overtaking lanes and contraflows than any M6 nightmare. I guess that was my S.A.S. moment this lifetime...
Anyway, I just want to announce that I finally got my shit together and got an availability checker for all you lovely customers out there to see if I can do your gig straight from the home page, contact page and booking page . If I can't do it on your chosen date, Drop me an email anyway and I'll recommend some good reliable Deejays that I know who won't let you down like some out there. It's a free service designed to help you steer clear of the cowboys in this business (I don't get commission) of which there are a few.
I've said this before and I'll say it again, if the DJ is more important to you then try to find one BEFORE securing the venue, as you stand much more chance of having a great party with the right DJ than you do with any particular venue. Not only that, I have a page that gives you a little info about some of the more popular venues and their possible pitfalls like noise limiters etc.
Well that's quite enough work for one day. Time for tea and telly.
Have a great weekend and see you soon,
