An Online DJ Community For Hassle-free Equipment Booking & Rentals

StageWing is a DJ rental marketplace founded by a group of professional DJs to help fellow artists find all types of audio-visual equipment and music gear for their next gig. It currently serves 7 states across the USA.

The Catalyst - Where It All Started

I’m Sed Joseph. I live in Georgia and I've been a professional DJ for the past 15 years.

I started Stagewing to fill a personal business need. I was booked to DJ a wedding out of town. I made a decision to fly with my DJ controller but was forced to check it instead of carrying it on the plane. When I arrived at my hotel, I noticed my luggage had been opened and inspected by the TSA which somehow resulted in a damaged power cord. Immediately, panic began to set in- I had only a few hours until rehearsal. Unfortunately, I didn not have a network of local DJs to call upon to bail me out, and the power cord was not easy to find at nearby popular electronics stores.

How Yo!Rent (FATbit Technologies) Helped

I’d considered a few software before exploring Yo!Rent. But none quite offered me a complete package as Yo!Rent did. All the features and functionality were available right out of the box.

Experience with Yo!Rent (FATbit)

The process, right from the beginning, was pretty smooth and easy. I was happy to find a solution that I’d been searching for; chiefly, a multi-vendor solution, where members could add multiple items from different vendors in a single cart.

The way Yo!Rent team used to communicate was very helpful and it enabled me to always stay on top of project progress. I appreciate having 1 complete year of technical support post deployment, so I can reach back in case of any questions and issues. To supplement the support, I was provided with user manuals, which are also quite helpful.

It was an effortless process. I knew exactly what to expect, working with FATbit. This is the most satisfying thing as a founder.
