    A great DJ with his own remixes, songs, and creative ways of mixing and mashing a different variety of generes throughout the entire night! Smokefree and doesn't get drunk.

    Jonny Tsunami did an excellent job for our halloween party! He was open to suggestions, showed up early, and kept customers thoroughly entertained. He even offered pointers on how to improve our next DJ event. We'll definitely try to hire him again soon.

    This is Rob V from OKC, I got DJ JONNY TSUNAMI on a show I had at the opolis in Norman... He kept the whole place rockin from start to finish. He has a great selection of music and he mixes like a pro. He's hands down the best DJ in OKC!

    Jonnie did a great job with the party. He did show up a little late which stressed me out but the party went off successfully.

Question and answer

Q. Describe the most common types of jobs you do for your clients.

A. Lately, I've mostly been hired to DJ at dance parties. Common settings include, but are not limited to: nightclubs, fraternity parties, house parties, birthday parties, etc.

But I have also DJed at concerts, and have run sound for bands.

I'm not limited to DJing for live events. I have been hired to make dance mixes for cheer squads and dance crews. Also, numerous hip hop artists have hired me to DJ and host their mixtapes. I have even ran my own radio show, in the past.

For anything that you need music for, I'm your man!

Q. What important information should buyers have thought through before seeking you out?

A. I need to know a location, what size area I'll be DJing in, and what equipment is available for me to use at said location (sound system, lights, etc.).

Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?

A. I am most known for keeping the party going nonstop with no breaks, or silence between songs. I use smooth transitions that allows for continuous dancing all night. One of my pet peeves is when DJs let the music stop between songs or use rough transitions. I want people to be able to keep dancing, not have to stop, then wait to get back into the groove.

I'm also known for being lively and energetic; I'll literally be the life of the party. I have a tendency to be on the dance floor just as much as I am behind the turntables. If no one is dancing, I'll get out and show them how its done!

Q. What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

A. Q:WHY DO U LIKE TO DJ? AND WHY DO U ?

A:I do it so I can introduce people to music that they wouldn't normally listen to, and to help them get out of their little box of familiarity. I like being able to show people that there is good music out there that they wouldn't normally give a chance.

Q. What are the latest developments in your field? Are there any exciting things coming in the next few years or decade that will change your line of business?

A. The industry has already moved away from using vinyl and has transitioned to being all digital. But the next big thing will be video mixing (DJing with music videos). Video mixing is a controversial subject among DJs. Some DJs argue that showing music videos on the dance floor will cause people who would normally be dancing to be distracted and pay more attention to the videos. Others just think that it's the coolest thing ever, and that the distraction wouldn't affect the crowd. Since video mixing requires more equipment than normal DJing, DJs that video mix typically charge more for their services.

Q. If you were advising someone who wanted to get into your profession, what would you suggest?

A. Just hustle and grind every day. If you make music your life, then your life will be music.

When I was in middle school, I started makes mixes and doing mixtapes with local artists. As I got better, I just kept branching out to the next cities. Now I work with artists all over the USA and some in Canada.

When I was in high school, I started DJing live for parties and I got hired as the resident DJ for a teen club. When I started going to college in Edmond last year, I just promoted myself and took any gig I could get. I was discovered by someone who worked for Local Heat who started managing me. Word just got around that I'm a good DJ, so people started asking me to be in their music videos or to come DJ at their clubs. The owner of Club Fusion finally heard about me, and called me up when he wasn't happy with the DJ he had.

If you want something, then set goals and have dates on when you want to reach them. Make sure every decision you make in life will help you reach those goals.
