How to Plan your Wedding or Quinceañera

I have been working, for some time now, on a wedding and quinceañera Planning, How To. It is almost done, and I have some Ideas of what people are generally looking for. Most of the time when I show my planning tools to my clients, whether it’s a Quinceanera or a Bride to bee, they are amazed at how easy it is to do. Most of them think that planning the reception is a hard, tiresome, difficult, labor intensive, exhausting job, that they shouldn’t have to figure out how to do.

And I agree!!!

If you would like some help planning your reception, some general ideas on what to watch out for, or just have a question nobody has been able to answer you, I invite you to sign up to my Information Mailing List. I can also send you a copy of the documents that I currently use to organize Weddings and Quinceaneras in the Houston area.

So when will this, How To be out?

Well, being the beginning of the year, a lot of people are booking DJ services for the year. This is a pretty busy time for me, getting calls, meeting with potential clients, and keeping track of all my “open” Dates. I will probably shoot for finishing my planning guide sometime this month, or by next month.

It came out to be much more work than expected, but I should help a lot of people out. Especially people who are looking to save as much money as they can. You will also have the “POWER” to be on top of things during your event.
If you would like to be notified when this document is available to the public, fill out your information on the form on the right hand side ————————————–>

As in any Internet business of integrity, your information will remain confidential, and will only be used by FHP Entertainment for the purpose of sending you Wedding or Quinceanera Information. I GUARANTEE your privacy because I am the owner of the every piece of software used to store and retrieve your information.

Happy Planning!!!!

Tejano Music

Tejano Music, what ever happened to it?

Tejano Music saw its biggest success in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s according to Tejano Music WikiPedia. It was played everywhere; homes, radio, cds, tapes and everywhere available at the time. There plenty of radio stations playing Tejano Music and plenty of eager listeners, waiting to enjoy the soulful sounds of the music. Then, as trends and styles changed, so did the popularity of Tejano Music. For those of us who enjoy Tejano Music, it is still very well alive and usually only available to us via CDs or Tapes. As a DJ, the majority of events that I play at, Tejano Music is very much requested, so social events is the other place where you would hear some good Tejano Songs. A big percentage (approx. 40%) of the parties I did this year (2006) were ones that primarily required the rich texas-style of music. Of course that can be broken down further to the people that wanted “Good Tejano Oldies” and the ones that wanted “The Good Tejano Songs.” If you are reading this and Love the Music, I think you can make out the difference. For the rest I will explain.

“Good Tejano Oldies” Artists include:

“Good Tejano Songs” Artists include:

You can find a list of most Tejano Artists at OndaNet.com.

What is Tejano Music?

Well if by reading the names of the artists above, you still cannot identify tejano music, visit their websites, search for them on Google, Yahoo, or MSN, or Look for some good Tejano Online Radio Stations. Also the Tejano Music WikiPedia is a great source to find out general information about Tejano Music, Tejano History, and Recent Tejano developments. Although, for recent Tejano Development, I will probably be posting more on right here, since there is a lot going on, but it is not publicated on any “over the air” radio stations.

What is this you say about Online Radio Stations?

There are a few options for these. The one I have been listening to, for a long time now, is BnetRadio.com which is based out of Houston Texas. Then there is Batanga.com, Tejano Music on Live365.com, and also some of the “over the air” radio stations provide an online stream (more on that later). I occasionally visit BnetRadio.com and hang out with Anabelle, DJ Bliss, who is on from Monday through Wednesday from 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm.
More Tejano Music Sources
Well if you would like to find more information onlie about Tejano Music, here are a few other sources:

More resources to come, this is my last post for the year 2006, I hope to have more information in 2007 to keep you up to date!!!

Have a safe and Happy new Year!!!!

Caring Takes Time

DJ in Houston love

This phrase popped into my head not too long ago, after taking the “Love Story Workshop”, given here in Houston by Mark and Rebecca Ferrell, of DiscJockeyAmerica.com. The more I thought about it, the more it made sense. This is applicable to EVERYTHING and it may even sound like a cliché, one of those expressions you hear so often, and don’t bother to pay attention to.

So why write about it? And why is important in the Wedding and Quinceañera Entertainment Industry? How can it be used for positive results in anything you do?

I asked myself those exact questions as I sat there and pondered over the phrase. “Caring takes time.” The more I thought about it, and made sense, the more I came across other clichés;

  • Birds of a feather flock together
  • You are responsible for your own actions
  • You make your bed, lie in it
  • If you sleep with dogs you’ll wake up with fleas
  • you must save for a rainy day
  • If the shoe fits, wear it
  • What goes around will come back around
  • Respect is not given its earned
  • To have friends you have to learn to be a friend
  • Do unto others like you want them to do unto you…

You get the idea. Those phrases we hear that we usually say; “yea, yea, yea, whatever!” Or we just think “I’ve heard that before.” Or simply ignore to hear them after the first few words.

In doing weddings and quinceaneras, I found out that the more I took the time to know the people whose party I was organizing, the better the parties came out. Common sense, right? So why is it so hard to do?

Now I wasn’t trained by any DJ, so I did not know better at first, and like any begginer DJ, I was under the impression that my clients hired me to “Just Play Music” and “it was their fault if anything went wrong, everything was unorganized, or announcements came out in the wrong order.” Surely the customer knows exactly what they want and they know how to explain to the DJ what they want, right?

Well all those assumptions are incorrect. As a DJ, you are the Professional, you are the one who’s been to many events, you are the one who should have suggestions on how to organize any event, you are the one who should give options to your clients, and you are the one who should make sure that EVERYTHING comes out perfect.

And guess what…—– All that takes time.

The Professional Houston DJ

THE PROFESSIONAL DJ… Blah Blah Blah!!!!!!!!!!

Did you know that DJ’s are not required to take any type of professional training, schooling, college, customer service trainig, etc… NOTHING

So why do they call themselves Professionals ?!?!?!?!?

Probably because they think that calling themselves professionals, will get them uninformed customers. Visit the website of ANY DJ that is just starting off, they will brand the word professional everywhere they can, WHY?!?!?!?! Good Question!!!!

Where do you find Truly Professional DJs????
