As the holidays approach and business continues to pick up, we've been asked directly, "Why don't you blog more?" (Notice the last entry is from February!). The answer is pretty simple, as the owner of the company, I find that a continual stream of my "thoughts" or reciting trivial facts/figures do not convert to event sales. While other DJs may disagree with this notion, everything that can be said is already written into the passages of the entire website via text, images, video, and price building components.
I've never been told on the phone or by any other media method that we've been contacted/contracted because of something inspiring that was written on our website blog or social media platforms.
Keep in mind, I realize that the social channels are very important to stay in focus and capture various demographics, but we also have a very powerful word of mouth list that keeps us as busy as we need to be.
Many times I find myself more gratified providing pictures and video of the events that we perform at than trying to jump up and down on our blog trying to grab attention or repost what is already written on many other websites that recite all the same type of information. These types of things will have little impact to the decision making process to provide events services to any potential client.
As a company, we realize that it is critical that we remain current to the times and relevant to the current trends to ensure we continue to provide top tier services to our customers. We will always strive to grow and continue to provide outstanding service to clients past, present, and future....
As of 2-24-2014, Aaron-Beach Productions has been elected as secretary of the board for SNAPDJS. SNAPDJS is a local chapter were DJs all over southern New England meet once a month to discuss ways to enhance and create a learning environment allowing our DJ operations to stay current with all of today's latest trends. The group brings in various speakers and guests who are leaders in their industry who graciously pass on the knowledge that has made them successful and the keys to ensure we can provide our customers superior services.
Many of us have known each other for more than 20 years, so we not only peers in our field, but also personal friends who back each other when help is needed. Often we are asked; "Aren't you competitors to each other?", well of course the answer is yes, but in the scheme of things, there is SO much work that there is a certain equilibrium that allows everyone to be successful without having to step on each others toes.
We are very excited to be part of the board and hope that we can make a lot of positive changes to serve the group well.
As many of you know, we have been retooling many areas of our company. We've been asked: Why has it taken this long? Well there is no real short answer to that, but there is a core reason, an in short it came down a choice; that choice was to remain analog and struggle to find vinyl records of today's current music or make a transition. As we reflect on our origins, we've always played vinyl records, 45's, 12", albums, whatever it took to get the job done. We used tape to handle dinner music and filler music for down times. When CD's came on the scene, their mixing ability was something I really didn't care much for, and quite honestly, was resistant to want to change.
Fast forward to 3 years ago, I was shown the way of digital controllers that act and feel just like the tried and true record players we've used for decades before. This essentially allowed us to "jump over" the entire CD generation of music and move right to digital music. By doing this, we essentially removed the chains of burden to try and keep up with the markets demand for new music which in most cases have not been pressed on any kind of vinyl.
Why is this important to our customers? The short answer is: sheer number of song titles and genres that we can provide at any given event! For comparison, the vinyl days using four steel crates with dual chambers permitted us to bring around 5000 tracks between 12", 45's, CD's and cassettes to any given event. Over the years of being in business, we had to rotate out music and archive it because there was just no need to try and carry vinyl that we knew we'd never play, it was just wasted manpower to try and bring those to a job.
Using today's digital formats; we have a currently indexed database of music that has surpassed over 85000 songs. This gives us a wide range of choices for our customers to choose from. Our catalog starts at 1929 and spans to today's hottest tracks you hear on the radio.
Where have we been for the last 10 years? Most ask us why we've been dormant for so long, the answer is, really we haven't, we've been operating silently supporting many of our word of mouth and returning customers, many of which have been doing business with us for over 15 years. I made the decision to build the website and remarket the company now that we have the proper tools and equipment to continue to provide top tier services that we've done all along without having to worry about being able to provide the music that people want to hear....
I've have retooled a lot of areas of the site to ease the process of getting pricing and adding general contact information through automation. We have found that lot of customers want something simple and quick while being self guiding to the basic information.
So what we have done is created two separate sections, one for direct contacting and event selection, and the other that will build real time price quotes of all the services that we provide.

We have complete torn down our lighting all the way down to the nuts and bolts. We are moving to a complete DMX solution to control the entire lighting system from Freestyler. This includes 7 DP-415 dimmer packs retrofitted to control all the existing lamps/pars and many new additions like movers/lasers/gobo projection...I'll post up some video as soon as it is ready!

Welcome to Aaron-Beach Productions blog area. We've been asked over the years what has taken so long to create an online presence. The answer ultimately is we've always been a word of mouth company with a 1 line ad in the phone book. We've realized that an online and social presence is become more of a requirement than a feature and have made the changes need to stay competitive.
