DJ4Life: My Time in Springfield, MO

My "interesting life" story took a crucial pivot in early 2012. For personal reasons, I moved to 2 hours south to Springfield, Missouri in May of 2012 and then moved back to Kansas City sometime around Thanksgiving, 2013. During that year and a half, I continued to work as a Wedding DJ. Usually booking weddings 6-9 months ahead of time meant that I lived in Springfield but worked in KC for a while, and then flipped to living in KC and finishing my weddings in Springfield.

I performed at 23 events in the Ozarks over that time (plus 14 more in Kansas City). And all of those gigs were without a van, just a car that I could fill up the front & back seats plus the trunk and just barely get everything inside -- after I switched to QSC K12s and stopped using my sub.

Here's a map view of where I was at:

In addition to being a traveling Wedding DJ, this is the time in my life where began to think seriously about working in clubs. And by thinking seriously, I mean PRACTICING. really practicing. re-learning and fine tuning the craft. Which would come in handy for the next chapter, and especially the chapter after that...
