Eric Z. If you want to up-level your kids/tween/teen event, have no fear - DJ T-Roc has more depth than his Hookah Lounge signage would have you think.
I first encountered DJ T-Roc when he was hired for a small middle school dance. In a super warm room, most of the teens kept dancing and dancing, so I know he could keep their attention. I heard no complaints from the parents/teachers, and my son though he was pretty good, so I reached out to him when planning an outdoor disco/rave for our elementary school. He could have taken the easy way out and threw in some Kidz Bop, but he really thought about what to play and brought it all, no need for Spotify. I'm impressed - no wedding DJ standards like Celebration or Cupid Shuffle - all modern tunes, all clean/radio remixed versions, some 70-80's played to moderns beats for the parents, all mixed together. We had K-8 kids out there dancing, parents too, and he kept it going a whole 3+ hours with no breaks or beat drops. The kids loved him, some organizers thought the whole event was over the top, and even a school district board member gave me a big thank-you for finding him.
We got contracts/invoice/deposit out of the way via email two weeks ahead of time to lock him in. He showed up an hour early to setup with no stress. All he needed was a 110V drop, and he was ready to go with his power, cables, Mac, deck, mic, mixer, monitor, and QSC speakers in about 30 min. I paid him online when we were done. Super easy.
