How the American DJ WiFly will change everything for the mobile DJ

Here at Ellumiglow, we have been setting up lighting installations for quite some time. And one of the biggest hassles in this process, is cabling. With permanent installations, its not all that bad. You go through the process once and you're usually good to go for quite some time. Sure you might tweak the system a little bit, add or remove lights here and there, but you have your basic structure in place. Getting all of your lights throughout your venue connected to a single DMX controller takes careful planning and often times limits your setup, and when you are doing this multiple times a week or even a night in different venues and bars, it can become quite tedious and time consuming. The American DJ WiFly is about to change all of that.

With the American DJ WiFly, you gain complete freedom from DMX cables. In essence, it replaces all of your DMX cables with a wifi system. Just connect your transmitter to your DMX controller, and your lights to receivers, and establish a connection, and you should be good to go. And when combined with ADJ Go, WiFly products, or other lights with a lithium battery, you gain complete freedom from cables altogether. Setting up your lights becomes as simple as establishing a Wifi connection and charging your lights with the new American DJ WiFly system.

This impacts mobile DJs in a huge way. Setting up your lights is now easier than ever, and so much less of a hassle to boot. It's just one less thing to worry about before you go on stage to play. You no longer need to worry about lugging around heavy cables, or really even think about how to make your lighting setup fit together. You can place your lights anywhere within 500 feet of your transmitter with an open line of sight, which adds an incredible amount of flexibility to your lighting setup.

The American DJ WiFly adds so much value to any lighting setup, and with a modest price, it really should be a no brainer for every mobile entertainer. Take your freedom from cables!

The Oregon Country Fair

The Oregon Country fair is a celebration unlike any other, bringing Oregon's greatest creators together for a weekend of magical fun. Crafters, entertainers and artists of all sorts show there wares and talents off in permanent booths built directly into the forest in Vaneta, Oregon, a short drive from Eugene. This three day festival is where Oregon's roots come together, and grow together. You will see a diverse and interesting crowd ranging from newborns to old timers, making this event as diverse the vendors themselves.

At the Oregon Country Fair you can see just about anything with magic just around the Corner. Parades blare music trudging along the paths lined with vendors hawking there wares. A diverse and sustainable event, at the fair you will find hippies galore. Potters, jewelers, weavers, woodworkers, you name it, if it has a rich crafting history you will find a vendor there. Performance areas are peppered throughout the forest, so when your in need of a rest a show will entertain you in the meantime.

Camping at the fair is a fun and loyalty inspiring experience, with a variety of camps to choose from each with its own pros and cons. Quiet Camps is great for old timers and families because at this camp you need to be...quiet. The Darling Reunion Campground has been hosting a giant private party every Saturday for as long as I can remember, and at this camp you will have the most space and the seasoned folk. Shady Rest located directly adjacent to Darlings, is the closest campground at the fair. You will have slightly less space, but that isn't always a bad thing because at shady rest is always popping. Ellenwood is a new campground that I know nothing about and EZ camp is just easy, straight up.

But the best thing about the fair is the people. At the Oregon Country Fair you will find some of the best vibes known to man, as Oregon's best come together for a weekend of fun and family. The old teach the young, the strange get stranger, and most important of all no one judges. This allows for some pretty wild creations, and for the timid to let there imaginations run wild and come up with some of the most innovating and interesting ideas around for costumes and creations. Your sure to learn a thing or two, and meet some of the most amazing people around at OCF, so DON'T MISS OUT!!!!
