Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A. If the service you are looking at says that you can call them, I suggest that you do. You can tell a lot about your DJ over the phone. This is especially important if your DJ will be making announcements. Listen to them and think about how they will sound in front of a crowd.
Q. What important information should buyers have thought through before seeking you out?
A. The most important information to consider when booking me is the approximate size of the guest list. We offer packages for small parties that start at $35 an hour, but parties of more than 100 people can expect a price of $75 an hour.
Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?
A. Simply put, we offer superior customer service. We offer free face to face meetings at your convenience, we are available by phone all day, and we will bend over backwards to make our guests happy.
Q. What do you like most about your job?
A. I like having the chance to be a part of people's memories. No matter what the occasion is, a birthday party, a wedding, a holiday party, people can look back on that day and think, "that DJ was great."
Q. What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A. Customers ask a wide variety of questions of us. No matter what, if the question starts, "will you," or "can you" the answer is always "yes".
Q. Do you have a favorite story from your work?
A. We had a Halloween party last year. The day before the event the customer called us and asked us if we could come in a costume. The DJ raided his closet and put together an amazing Ash from Army of Darkness costume. The customers were so impressed they wanted to take pictures of it.
Q. How did you decide to get in your line of work?
A. It began with a life-long love of music. I have been buying music since I got my first dollar in allowance. In college I took several classes on music appreciation.
I finally decided to become a DJ when I had my own wedding. We contacted a DJ who claimed to have 10 years of experience at weddings. I provided him with a play list and our itinerary. On the day of the wedding he played his own music, which at one point included 7 back to back slow songs, and we had to keep reminding him to do his announcements. Thank god he had some good music or the wedding would have been ruined. I realized that I could have done his job much better than he did. So I bought some equipment, built a website, and advertised like crazy. I haven't looked back since.
