    DJ Corey D is the real deal. A true professional. They say music & food are the 2 things that make or break your party. Thanks to DJ Corey D, BOTH were perfect. I told him the night before we were moving the party indoors because I couldn't get our gas grill to work. He said he'd be happy to set up anywhere, but if the grill was the only reason for moving indoors he'd be happy to bring one. I said it wasn't necessary, but he insisted. The next day he came with his equipment & a portable grill. Nothing fancy, but we couldn't be happier. Above that, the music was spot on what we wanted. He played everything I asked for & really set the party mood. His set up was amazing - more than we expected. The party was for my brother who is leaving for basic training & everyone had the best time. I highly recommend DJ Corey D. From the first communication to the music he played to the fact that he parked his truck away from the house so guests could park close by, he showed how much he really cares about everyone having a good time.

    DJ Corey D was hired for my in-laws 50th anniversary & we couldn't be happier with him. From all our conversations before the party all the way up until the end, he went above & beyond anything we could have expected. His party planner kit was a time saver for sure & I got so many compliments from guests about his set up (simply beautiful) & his music. He even surprised us all by having "Happy 50th Anniversary Norma & Leo" up on his video monitor, along with photos of my in-laws that he got from my Facebook page. Simply amazing. My father-in-law is a big Frank Sinatra fan, & Corey D managed to play Sinatra right long with B-52s, Justin Timberlake & more. I never use the word perfect, but in this case it seems appropriate. Corey D was perfect. My in-laws have already invited him back for there next anniversary.

    Absolutely blown away at the amazing service we got for such a low rate. This event was last minute and DJ Corey came through with flying colors. We got numerous compliments on the music and we can't say enough on how the DJ's performance truly made our event a huge success. Many Thanks!

    Hi Mikey, so great to meet you in person after all the emails. Tonight is the graduation, isn't it? You've all worked hard and deserve to have some fun. I had the best time spinning your party. Such great kids you all have. Glad I could make your hands clap. Let's keep in touch. I'm holding June 27, 2020 for you, wink, wink.

    From the start, Corey followed up with all communications. He understood my concerns and gave me a lot of information which led me to hire him. He is a true professional and I am confident that he will come through for me on my big day.

    DJ Corey D was incredible. Throughout every stage of our wedding planning, he was knowledgable and available to all of our questions and concerns. We really appreciated how prepared and professional he was from our first meeting to our wedding day. During our wedding reception, Corey went above and beyond our expectations. Our party was held outdoors and the weather was terrible. Corey stayed the whole time and continued to play as if there was nothing wrong. We ended up having so much fun and got so many compliments from our guests about the music he played.

    Congratz to you and Bria. I will always remember how great your wedding was. Your family and friends are testament to how amazing you both are. Thank you for allowing me to be part of your wedding. I am truly honored.

Q&A

What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Because each event is different, pricing is based on the wants and needs of the client, but a good rule of thumb is about $100 per hour for basic and standard packages, which include the DJ, Music, Sound System, Lighting and fog.
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
We like to meet with new or potentially new clients by phone to discuss their wants and needs. Then as we progress, an in-person meeting is always welcome. We have party planning kits we email clients that cover all aspects of their event, including things they might not have thought about, such as certain songs for guest of honor entrance, music while dining, etc. By answering a few questions, the client is assured that all the music is covered before the event, so on the day, they can focus on other things.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Our award-winning DJ has been a professional DJ for 20+ years. He is insured and certified with the Disc Jockey Association of America, with zero complaints. He has mixed many weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, corporate events, circuit parties and more. He's in high demand because of his ability to mix seamlessly as well as blend multiple genres of music during my sets. He never use pre-mixed music and always take requests. I am the Program Director for 2 radio stations, and have a syndicated weekly mix show on 4 radio stations across the U.S. (dance, top 40, club), as well as a regularly appearing 80's mix show on 2 other stations. I am also a remixer with several top 10 and top 25 remixes, and have several accolades associate with my mixing and remixing skills including "Best Dance / EDM Song", and People's Choice Award for "Favorite Music Site".
How did you get started doing this type of work?
With a background in radio and music production, or DJ Corey D says music has always been a big part of his life. From a very early age, his mum says he would sing along with songs he'd never heard before - he just instinctively knew the melodies and words. In junior high, I was invited to the 'cool kids' parties as long as I brought the music, and I quickly learned to respect the power it has over a crowd. I also started writing and remixing music as a hobby at that time. I re-write songs in my head, then using a dual-tape deck (remember them?), and my Casio keyboard I created my own extended songs. At 18, a radio station had a contest to win tickets to a concert - the best remix won. Rather than remixing one song, I did a mega-mix of all the artists songs, and won. The station also gave me a job as a mix show dj. In college I majored in Behavioral Management, and minored in Music. After moving to Palm Springs in 1999, I began working full time as a dj / remixer / music producer.
What types of customers have you worked with?
WeI've recently worked with: 2 Weddings, 2 Graduation, 1 Anniversary Party, 1 Birthday O'Donell House (Wedding) The City of Palm Springs The City of Cathedral City Desert Hot Springs High School (Prom) The Palm Springs Art Museum (Meet The Museum) Jeffrey Sanker Productions (White Party 2 Times) Desert AIDS Project (Mid-Summer Dance Party) AIDS Assistance Program (Evening Under The Stars) Several Resorts & Hotels (Pool Parties) In the past couple of months we have also spun 1 block party, 1 corporate event, 1 Club and 2 resorts.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
We always like the project we are currently working on; the one about to happen, but pool parties and celebrations (Weddings, birthdays, anniversaries) are our favorite. We enjoy surprising people by playing something unexpected that puts smiles on everyones faces. And the diversity of music preferences and ages always keeps the music fun.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Anyone can bake a cake; That doesn't make them a chef. Anyone can pull a tooth; that doesn't make them a dentist. Anyone can play music, that doesn't make them a dj. Ask if they take requests. If they say no, they most likely are using pre-recorded sets. If they use pre-recorded sets, they are unable to adapt the music to fit the needs of the crowd. Ask for a demo. A good 15 or 20 minute demo should have at least 10 songs in it and will let you know 2 things: How well the DJ is able to mix (or blend) songs together as well as what kinds of songs he plays. If you get a 60 minute demo with 12 songs on it, you're stuck listening for an hour just to hear him mix 10 times.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
How much space does the DJ need? How much power does the DJ need? How old is the equipment the DJ uses? How long is the set up and tear down of equipment? Is the DJ Insured? Does the DJ take requests? Does the DJ mix live? Is there a break between songs or are they all blended together?
