Table Magic - It's more for me

Monday, December 6, 2010 , Posted by Bandstand Music Inc at 10:55 AM

Mobile Wedding DJ's are usually the people who release tables to go through the buffet line at wedding receptions. Years ago I discovered that a great way to make this task more enjoyable for me was to perform close-up magic as I released those tables. What's funny is that a lot of my clients now request this as part of the reason they hire me.
This table magic thing is a great way to give the bride and groom something different and it always breaks the ice for a lot of people during the dinners. In addition it's just one more reason for the guests to remember how much fun they had at the reception. Ultimately (as any magician would tell you) I do this because I LOVE to watch the reactions people have to magic. That look of astonishment on a guests face is priceless for me. I guess I'm greedy in that way.

Cupcake trend is getting huge...

In lieu of the traditional multi-layered wedding cake more and more couples are looking at an exciting alternative. On back-to-back receptions that I DJed in November the traditional wedding cake was replaced with colorful assortments of cupcakes. Its a nice change of pace and offers variety to the guests. I have not investigated the cost so I don't know if it's cheaper, the same or more expensive than regular wedding cake. The nice thing is that the trend doesn't have to take away any business from wedding cake makers because cupcakes is more than likely already part of their business.
