About this pro

How does your business stand out?

There is no other DJ like me out there. I would compare my uniqueness to the late great Casey Kasem. You either have the talent for this business or you don't. I am a naturally born performer. I don't just play music, I give you a whole concert experience, and keep people involved.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I love the interaction with people, seeing their reactions to music, comedy etc. I love to make people laugh and see that they are having a good time. This is the real reason I got into this business 17 years ago.

    Great DJ for our annual event.
    I was so surprised when Daniel called to tell me he was sending a video of our event. I did not have time to take pictures so what a treat. He kept in sync with the music "I" wanted not what he wanted to play. My guests partied till the music stopped. We even added an extras hour since everyone was having a great time.
    Dan S. Nov 3, 2016

    Thank you very much for having me and giving me the opportunity to DJ for your party. The video should be ready by this weekend. I was glad to help in any way I could. Thanks again :)

    Wedding DJ
    Verified Review
    Although he said he has done many weddings before, we got the impression that perhaps he's only done a couple. His timing was off on the processional and grand entrance music and just seemed to be winging it, asking questions that he should have known if he was an experienced wedding dj. Also, he showed up in grubby attire-jeans with socks and sandals with a dirty baseball cap! Luckily our wedding coordinator was able to direct him, and pull it all together and direct him. Did well when during the reception, playing good music to dance to. Better suited for the clubs.
    Dan S. Aug 24, 2016

    Grubby Jeans? I asked you if I could wear Jeans and a button up shirt you said yes. Those are $100 Alexander Jordan Jeans. The sandles I have to wear because I am disabled? Perhaps you didn't notice my foot is turned? I did everything you asked in spite of the fact you didn't send me anything as far as cued song. The only songs you had for me were on your IPOD. And by the way you didn't set them right those songs don't start until about 15 seconds in. My baseball cap was brand new and not to mention half of your guests were dressed the same way I was Jeans and a button up shirt. I did everything you wanted me to and I did not wing it I asked all the questions that needed to be asked in spite of the lack of Details you didn't give me. Not to mention your wedding Coordinator didn't give me the schedule until dinner time. Did you give her a bad review too? You are the second person to give me a bad review based on your own lack of information provided. This bad review is not deserved. Everyone of your guests including your own wife was happy. I went above and beyond what you called me to do. But frankly how dare you call me grubby. Anyways I wish you and your wife a happy life full of love and peace. Next time ask me why I am wearing sandles instead of calling me a bum thanks.

    This was my mom's 70th birthday bash and she wanted to dance! Although 70, she loves current music and DJ Flex was amazing! He kept in touch with us and walked me through what was needed as well as making suggestions. He definitely played to the crowd and was a great MC. I think a few of the ladies even got his info to hire him for her husband's party coming up. Everyone was up and dancing, it was awesome. Thank you DJ Flex for making the night!

    The worse dj ever if he wants to call himself a dj.which he's not one.....its all fake music...
    Dan S. Jun 3, 2016

    Well I am sorry you feel that way. I did everything you wanted even when you changed the Genre's. You had no compassion for the fact my mother died, I had to rent a van to bring lights you didn't even pay for. Your family and friend's all had a good time. You are the only one who didn't. Not to mention I even Blessed your family and your child. I went above and beyond what you required, yet you can't even say a simple thank you. I am sorry you feel this way and will pray that God will soften your heart of Ice. Thank you for the opportunity to work at your event and I am truly sorry you feel that way.

    DJ Flex did a GREAT job! He arrived ahead of time and got setup for a surprise birthday party for my wife. He played all the songs that my wife and I grew up with. As the evening went on, and his time was running out, I asked him if he could stay another hour and he did - everyone had a wonderful time.
    Dan S. Jun 3, 2016

    Thank you Brian for being a friend to me through my mom's passing and giving me the opportunity to DJ your Wife's party. We had a great time and hope to see you and your family in Canada some day. Thank again and God Bless :)

    DJ Flex did a great job at our daughter's Sweet 16 party. He got the right mix of music, came prepared with her list of requested songs, got the kids as well as the adults out on the dance floor having fun. He was flexible with our schedule changes and helpful in setting up for the slide show (and minor decoration mis-haps before the party, too!) We will definitely recommend him to others and use him again when we're in the need for a DJ again.

    When you hire Dj Flex for a gig he is on time comes early to set up, his music gets everyone going and so much fun; looking for a DJ look no further he is the guy to book.
    Dan S. Oct 14, 2015

    Wow! Thank you for your kind words I do try my best and love to engage the crowd and keep things fun. I believe when someone DJ's they should be a performer, or treat the equipment as an extension of themselves. If you can make the music apart of you it will just flow and bring one of the greatest experiences in life. Thank you for your kind words and your review. See you thursday!

    He's a awesome person who is always helpful to the T, and does great work. Have never Know him to not be able to solve a problem or miss anything that he is suppose to do. He has helped me set up my stream info and is able to explain how to fix it if it messes up. His service is always great and he is very patient and understanding when it comes to finding a solution to any problem that may happen, he always goes above and beyond. I will continue to go to him first before asking for anyone , no improvement needed nor do I see any reason that he should do anything different in the future, just keep being awesome.He provides excellent quality of work. If it be tech work or Djing work.

    Very kind words and I appreciate your review I try my best and you are right I adapt to any situation and handle pressure well. I believe in Quality over Quantity. If I provide high Quality service then I have reached my goal of providing the best experience of your life a day to remember. Thank you for your review. :)

Q&A

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Everything I know is through Trial and Error. Everything I know is pure experience, feeling out crowds, learning what they love, and how to be a great performer.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I have loved music since I was a child, always wanted to be a performer, then was introduced to the business when I was 17 years old. It was an in between setting, rather than be a famous singer, I could mix famous singers, and even create my own music. Music is my passion so this business comes natural to me. And here I am 15 years later still bringing clients a day they will remember forever.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Quality over Quantity, When seeking a good DJ interview them first, ask questions, if they are willing to interact with you, you can get a feel for what kind of performer they are.
