Re: I hate these new led lights!

The DJ is not hired at weddings to make sure his light set makes people look good, they just use it to create a mood and that might be on request of the couple (I have had a bride who wanted the entire venue in pink and yellow light) but mostly it's what the DJ prefers or what has been preinstalled in the venue.

They won't adapt their setup if you would bring a monitor to show how it will look on video, like I said, it's a wedding, not theather.

I talk each time to couples prior to the wedding about the DJ lights and show them an example of how nice red/magenta can look but almost all of them don't hire a DJ for his lightset, they want a guy who can keep the dancefloor full. When they see my examples they always say to me they will mention it to the DJ not to use those lights during the first dance but when that time comes the DJ just does whatever he pleases.
