You give the customer what they want.
What?!? Seven hours and no lecture on licensing? This place is going to the dogs.
I understand your frustration and agree with you but you have two choices: use what they give you or find something better, legally or illegally. If it were me I wouldn't sweat it much either way. I wouldn't have any qualms about trying to obtain illegal version that is higher quality, and/or, your room full of potential clients are presumably other dance troops either don't know or don't care about the quality of their tracks either. If you are pleasant and easy to work with and give them what they want (even though it may sound horrible to you) I think that's going to go further towards getting you new business.
Zumba's business model is as such- - They 'register' Zumba instructors (for a fee)- They charge their instructors a monthly subscription fee- Zumba provides the instructors with "approved" music monthly- Zumba (the corporation) handles the music licensing for public play, and share that approval with their instructors through that monthly subscription feeThis all being said- the Zumba group should (if they are official, Zumba- licensed) have legal permission for their music to be played with their performance, and they should be able to contact the Zumba corporation to get this music track for playback at their event. If Zumba no longer offers that track, you should ask them to consider choosing another song. But, since they are Zumba-licensed, I BELIEVE you can live stream the YouTube video legally. (But, we're professionals, and that's not something we'd like to ever to. )-Ray
If someone is performing
If someone is performing a choreographed routine, it is unlikely they will consider another track, nor is it appropriate that an audio operator would suggest such a thing. If they have mixed a couple of tracks together, for instance, you will be stuck with their mix, because the choreography will require the exact timing. ..
unless of course, you can get the original tracks and remix it yourself.... a lot of effort to go to for a 2 minute Zumba demonstration, though.
