Xavier was an amazing DJ and MC for my wedding! He is very professional and responsive. He met with us prior to the wedding to make sure he knew our needs and even met with the venue to make sure the space and equipment worked. Xavier kept the party going through out the night. I would highly recommend him for any event you might have.Dec 31, 2017Verified
Xavier was a pleasure to work with. He had such good energy and was super responsive and accommodating to our requests. All of our guests loved the music at our wedding. We really could not have asked for a better DJ. He also MC'd the wedding, which was amazing. You will not be sorry you hired him.Nov 2, 2017Verified
Xavier just recently did an amazing job at my wedding, on 7/22/17, he was very professional and responded quickly to questions and requests I had. At first I had not planned on having a DJ but after searching around and looking on Thumbtack I found him. He provided service far greater than even I dreamed of having and at a wonderful price. It was a great experience and I would definitely hire him for future events or recommend him to anyone looking for a great DJ.Jul 28, 2017Verified
Xavier DJed my wedding and he was awesome. He was a pleasure to work with and he made everything so simple. He was easily accessible via texting leading up to the wedding so I was able to send him song requests and do-not-plays as I thought of them. He provided all of the speakers that were necessary for the ceremony and cocktail hour (reception speakers were already provided) and everything went perfectly. He really kept the party going during the reception. He read the crowd and kept everyone dancing and singing along all night until we had to leave the venue. I can’t say I’ll be planning an event where I’ll need a DJ any time soon, but if I did I would definitely hire Xavier!Nov 29, 2017Verified
I highly recommend Sounds by Xavier. We have used him on several occasions and he never fails to deliver a great evening and for a great price. In this case it was Bar Mitzvah Celebration which takes a special kind of DJ to pull it off. Xavier did his research and came up with great music in accordance to Jewish Tradition. Additionally the party music was great, he really got the kids and adults up out of their seats and dancing. Xavier always takes suggestions from the crowd in addition to his own selections. He loves all kinds of music and is happy to play anything you like. Use Xavier and you will not be disappointed.May 31, 2017
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?For mobile Djing (for weddings, parties and corporate events) I have fees set up depending on the amount of speakers and/or lights you'll need me to bring but I don't charge for extra hours so it's a flat rate in terms of the time. I can play for 8 hours with no break and no complaints (I actually love playing long sets). So I wouldn't want someone to limit how long they want music at their event based on cost. It makes no difference to me if I play for 4 hours or 8. But it does make a difference if I have to setup 6 speakers and a subwoofer vs 2 small speakers. :)
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I just need to know whether the event is indoors/outdoors, how many people they are expecting and their preferred music genres. That way I can help them figure out how many speakers they'll probably need depending on their situation (sometimes 4 small speakers is more than enough...and cheaper).
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I'm a multi-instrumentalist musician so I make sure than when I'm mixing songs they flow into each other harmonically and not just at the right tempo. And then as a Therapist I'm pretty good at reading people's emotions so that helps with reading the crowd.
