Thank you Angie! Happy New Year to you and the family. Thank you for trusting me and having me as your DJ for your daughters 16th birthday. I had a blast and the food was awesome along with all your family and friends. Thanks for the review. It's greatly appreciated.
Michael Abara was so great to work with for my August wedding. From day 1, he was responsive, friendly, and willing to do what it took to make our event successful. He was also competively priced which helped us in the vendor selection process. We were looking for a DJ who could also be an MC, and he could do it all. He worked well with our wedding planner, and helped our wedding be “the best wedding with the best music” according to our guests. He even helped with a surprise video of my matron of honor who couldn't make the wedding. She sent him a video to play during the reception, which was the best part ever. I’d definitely book him again for an event in LA/SF!Aug 30, 2017Verified
Mike did a great job of my wedding and couldn't be happier with his prep and execution of our big day. He was well planned before the wedding making sure that all aspects and all music cues were discussed so that there were no questions on the day of. I can say with confidence that I can and will highly recommend DJ Pandabara for all my friends and family.Jun 3, 2017VerifiedDJ PANDABARA LLC's reply
Thank you Bayani & Tammy for choosing and having me as your DJ & MC. It was a pleasure catering to you guys and making your day a special day without any interruptions, mishaps, etc. I love providing my clients with reliable equipment and a service that gives them peace of mind knowing they're in good hands. Thank you again for having me and for your rating and review.
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I do have a standard pricing system for regular private parties. When it gets to something extravagant that's going to be in a ballroom, banquet hall, restaurant, such as a wedding, sweet 16, corporate, etc. I have a different standard pricing for those types of event. I'm always flexible, negotiable, fair, and willing to beat others prices.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Usually it would be a meet up on site or a phone call. I'd like to get to know my client on a personal level to understand what he/she wants for their event and to fulfill their wants and needs as a DJ/MC. Also I know times are tight and I'm always willing to work with my clients requested budget even sometime under it. Once all is in agreement between my client and I, then contracts are explained then signed. You are more than welcome to think about our discussion about your event before making your final decision and agreeing on hiring me as your DJ/MC. There is no pressure or hassle on any of my potential clients. I want my clients to make a sound and solid decision upon hiring me.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?It doesn't really take to much to learn how to DJ. If you can keep stay in rhythm and beat you're good to go. Now when it comes to the technical side of sound and hooking up PA boards, mixers, speakers etc. All the training of hooking up sound equipment came from when I was in middle school doing DJ gigs left and right. Of course I learned on the way and studied things on my own through books and videos. No my church has me doing the sound, and I also do sound and DJ for one of the biggest comedy clubs in the world which is the Long Beach Laugh Factory.
