Meet Brian Price of Brian Price Wedding Entertainment who’s been business for 13 years in Youngstown, Ohio. Our CHAUVET DJ DJ of the Month!
CDJ: How did you get started DJing?
BP: I was in a band in high school and part of college. When the band broke up, I got a part-time job in radio, and began DJing small gigs. The radio job became full-time, and I started to become more serious about DJing as a craft. Slowly I built my skills and my business acumen until I felt I was able to open my own business. Which I did in 2002.
CDJ: What are your thoughts about lighting?
CDJ: What kind of Chauvet gear do you use?
BP: I’ve used Chauvet DJ gear almost exclusively throughout the years. For most lighting jobs, I use a combination on Freedom Strip, EZ Par, and EZ pin fixtures. For GOBOs, I’ve used LFS-5’s and The Gobo Shot 50 IRC. I just added the Chauvet Wash FX For wall and ceiling wash and love them. Great fixture! In the future, I plan to use the Freedom line exclusively for events. I love the colors and the flexibility they provide.
CDJ: What advice would you give other DJs?
BP: Be interested in everything as it relates to your craft. Whether it’s as a DJ, or as a lighting professional. There’s always something new to learn, and a different way of looking at what you do. Curiosity and the willingness to strike up conversations is a big plus. Read everything you can get your hands on, then take your gear out in the field and let your imagination take over!
