Controllers And LED Are Leading The Way
It’s a good time to be a DJ. One could certainly argue that the barriers to entry have never been fewer, thanks to the low costs and high-quality equipment available.
Of course, the next Tiesto or David Guetta might never walk into your store. But plenty of DJs can earn a living, or at least supplemental income, with the help of MI stores. As always, retailers cater to the “dreamers,” as well.
To get more information about the DJ and lighting segment of the industry, The Music & Sound Retailer reached out to Robert Marsh, President and Founder of Ronkonkoma NY-based I DJ Now, and Randy White, pro sound/recording/DJ and lighting buyer at Chuck Levin’s Washington Music Center in Wheaton MD. Please note, of course, that this story isn’t intended to be a comprehensive overview of all the notable companies, brands, products and technologies in this segment but, rather, is meant to encapsulate the thoughts and analysis of our two expert interviewees, who have their ear to the ground and work in the retail trenches every day.
