We can make each of your guests feel like they are that person.
If you want us to entertain we will and your guests will love it, but we are there to serve not be served.
When you request a song we have it.
If you preform a song we are at the controls to make you sound great.
We can record songs you and your guests preform and give you a CD of that performance at the end of the show.

We get the party started and keep it going.

My years of life experience enables me to converse with people of differing backgrounds. We have the ability and talent to entertain your guests with music and song.
If you need an Neil Diamond, Elvis Presley. George Strait, Garth Brooks, just to name a few I am Your Man.
All this and more are what makes my work seem like a vacation not a job.

We Regularly visit other DJ & karaoke shows to make sure we are doing the best show around.
We are active in local DJ meets and familiar with other active DJ's so we can refer you to other professionals if our schedules do not allow us to be available for your function.
Q. If you were advising someone who wanted to get into your profession, what would you suggest?
A. First of all i have done just that on many occasions but before doing so I would have to feel that they had the right personality for this endeavor. In fact i would probably have approached them to suggest the idea. I have been to other shows where you just felt like the dj wished he were somewhere else tonight.
My first suggestion would be to become a regular at my shows and watch and learn. What i do isn't complicated but if you don't do it just so, you will not enjoy it like you should and that will show threw to your guests. If you aren't comfortable with people, i mean really like crowds well get used to it. Learn to listen to your guests.
Get it "right" from the start. Don't Practice on your customers. Buy the best Equipment available and keep it working.... plan on owning 2 of everything. Don't ever let your employer down with equipment failures. Start Collecting Music now. Be willing to break your neck to make sure you have every song track desired by your employer and guests. Don't cut corners on the essentials. If you do these things this will be the best work you will ever find in your lifetime.
