The Santa Barbara California Wedding DJ’s Pivot

In 2020, the wedding industry came to a stop. Plans for all 2020 weddings halted without a sense of reconvening. Wedding planning companies and DJs alike experienced everything from indefinite postponements to full cancellations. To stay sharp and relevant, DJs based in Santa Barbara began broadcasting from online streaming platforms like Instagram Live, Twitch, and even Zoom.

In April 2020, DJ Will Gill started an online event experience called ZoomDJs.com. The initial idea was to perform virtual DJ services to postponed wedding clients. Because of lockdowns and a stalled economy, DJ Will Gill knew that no one could afford a virtual DJ at live wedding DJ prices. Therefore, ZoomDJs.com quickly became a pro bono entertainment service for families and companies needing a little bit of entertainment and interaction in troubled times.

Absolutely the best! Will was DJ/emcee and Zoom host for our 2020 micro wedding. He invested so much of his own time to make our special day the best. He did a site survey to ensure data speed would support Zoom video. He arrived 2 hours early on day of to set up and do mic check and video test. And my Zoom guests absolutely loved him as their host. Two thumbs up for Will!

    Wedding couples are picky with their wedding vendors selection. A DJ must show knowledge and experience. This comes from working at a lot of events.
