About this pro

How does your business stand out?

"Spinning Vintage Vinyl For Retro Peeps" Whether it's a rockabilly weekender, hot rod show, nostalgia birthday party, themed corporate event or backyard Tiki luau, I can design a playlist that your guests will dig! In addition, my show includes a video projection system with kitschy retro movies. I spin surf/instro, rockabilly, 60's garage & pop, lounge, new wave, soul and disco. And unlike most DeeJays today, I spin only vinyl records. No mp3's off of a computer! It's done completely old school. I am also a longtime musician who lives for music, so my rates are very reasonable.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

Back in the early 80's I was a DJ at a college radio station. I am also a musician and have been in various local Milwaukee bands, most recently with THE REVOMATICS and THE TIKINAUTS. I have also recorded several albums and have toured nationally opening for such artists as THE B-52's, DICK DALE, THE MADEIRA and UNKNOWN HINSON. Most recently I appeared on the Mancow Muller Morning Show, a nationally syndicated radio program out of Chicago. I've also been collecting vinyl for many years and own an extensive record collection including 45s. I spin everything from Surf/Instro, Rockabilly, Lounge, Hawaiiana, Disco, Soul, 60's Garage and Pop and New Wave. I like to think of myself as an "old school" DJ. I don't use a computer or play mp3's.

    Can't recommend DJ Tikinaut highly enough: he works with the client to develop a tight playlist & delivers the beat to the floor. My guests boogied for hours & left happy. Ask about video projection, definitely a bonus!

    Thanks Paul! It was fun working with you to bring your themed party to realization. Hope to do it again!
