Most of the gigs we do now are benefits and within 90 miles of the house, the great majority are actually local.  We hit the local casino circuit hard for almost 2 years to pay off a mass of medical bills, we've been established in this area for many years, casino lounge gigs pay well, we also do weddings, they pay well too so it helps, actually the photo studios started the music end of the program, we would book the photography at a wedding then find out they couldn't get a dj and would be asking to change the date so that brought about the music end of it, the music has far out paced the photography for the last several years, with the advent of digital camera's and computers it has taken the profit out of commercial work of that kind, at least in this area, we still have contracts for schools and do church registries but most of our studio work is music now.  Right now we have 3 systems available but rarely have more than one booked any particular time.  Since cody's heart attack a couple of years ago we've greatly cut back on the work load, it's important to him to do the benefits right now so thats what we do.  Incidently a JBL SF15 makes a great end table but is still easily moved out of a bus for use, it's not too heavy and not too big and easily flyable and sounds great, the amp sits under the table and the double deck sits on top of the table and we'll challenge anyone else to take a bowl off the table without touchng it, only the bass.
