Whats the DJ Difference?

Hiring a DJ to perform at your party is often hotly debated. I mean, iPod’s have shuffle don’t they? Why spend the money on a DJ? This was an interesting question the researches at Finland’s prestigious Jyväskylä University set out to answer. Their Studies showed that participants that attended parties with a DJ had a 92% increase in the enjoyment from the participants than parties that didn’t. Interesting data also showed that parties with DJ’s have higher attendance averages and more participation in party games/charitable endeavors.

DJ’s are professionals that can read the ebb and flow of their crowds, adjust music to maintain optimal mood and most importantly they allow you to be present for your event. You don’t have to take my word for it and you don’t have to trust the study, but I if you have a party or event coming up, call NN&P and we will show you the difference!

Live Wedding Chat

The 2020 Deep Creek and Garrett County wedding season is coming up and I’m sure you have questions. Join me and 11 other DCL area wedding professionals for a virtual wedding Q&A panel on Monday May, 18th at 2:00pm. Registration is required to attend and space is limited so grab your spot today.

NN&P vs. Covid-19

The Official Stuff: First and foremost our priority is the health and safety of our customers and clients. We are complying with all Maryland State executive orders. Customers that have to cancel their events due to the Corona Virus pandemic may do so without fear of penalty or recourse. Customers with contracts will be given rescheduling priority for their events.

Lets Talk: During the course of this pandemic I wont lie I lost a lot of business. If you would have told me in December 87% of my business would evaporate because of corona virus I would have laughed. Then again most if not all of us would have. This unprecedented event hit us all hard and I’m blessed to say with Gods help Norman Networking and Promotions will weather this storm and continue to serve clients in the post-corona world.

We are going to beat this thing, and when we do, NN&P is here to help you party.

TBT the First NN&P Wedding

Newly-Weds: Higginbotham

It’s hard to believe I’ve done 142 weddings & special events since this one. I had been cutting my teeth in radio, game show hosting, and had DJ’ed more wedding that I could count but this one meant something more. It was the first wedding I MC’ed as Dj Connor of Norman Networking and Promotions. The Higginbotham’s were one of the most relaxed and kind couples I had ever had the pleasure of working with. I get to see them here and there and it’s always great to catch up and reminisce on that night when they drop in for a game of Team Trivia once in a while. Speaking of firsts this is probably the first Throwback Thursday post I’ve ever made in my life how funny is that?
