About this pro

How does your service stand out?

I'm a music producer who also performs live regularly. When I DJ I'm into glitchy kinds of music so if you're looking for a DJ who slices, dices, and completely chops tracks up then I'm your man! I'm well organized and will help you plan you particular needs well in advance of your event. I also perform piano and guitar and have played a variety of music ranging from classical to Top 40 pop songs. I own a home studio in Norman, OK and I also work out of a professional recording space near downtown OKC where I can record any project ranging from solo vocals to rock bands to symphony orchestras. We offer full recording, mixing, and mastering services.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

For me music is an archive of sorts of how we think about life. It shows who we are, where we come from, where we're going, what we value, what we admire, and more. Music isn't necessarily a lifestyle but life itself and every project I work on I feel alive. I hope that I can help others feel the same.

    I recently hired Jesse for our school semi-formal and everything went fantastic! He was very easy to work with and communicate with. He traveled to my location, and his pricing was very reasonable! Over-all the entire event went very smoothly and everyone had a great time. I'm so grateful for his services and highly recommend him!

    Jesse was fantastic! He made my daughter's graduation party and enjoyable for all! Many guests came to ask me where I got my DJ. They enjoyed his skill in matching the music to the mood of the party and how responsive he was to accommodate requests. What they didn't know was how Jesse saved the day when our original DJ backed out at the last minute. He stepped up to the plate, worked with us to create a customized playlist, listened to our needs and responded so professionally! I highly recommend Beethovenboy Productions for your next party!

    Jesse DJ our daughter's 16th birthday, her and her friends were very happy with Jesse. He is very professional, he arrived on time, took request and played the kind of music my daughter wanted. We will use Jesse for future events.

    It was great working with Jesse at our HUGE Annual Community event called BLOCKTOBER at our Saddleback Church Corona Campus. Jesse was well prepared for our event, the song choices, the volume, the equipment, everything was perfect. We had several unsolicited remarks from participants at our event who thought our DJ did an incredible job and was a joy to speak with. We would highly recommend Jesse for your event and will be using him again for our future events.

    Thank you for having me perform at your event, it was a blast! Looking forward to it again in the future :)

Q&A

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I set my decks up and just let it flow. I don't have pre-made sets so I typically begin with light house and get a feel for the floor, wait for people to gather and drink, and as the vibe builds so do the tracks. Everything is mixed on the fly.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I've been performing live music for about 20 years now, mostly self taught until I went to college and got a master's degree in music. I love just about anything from classical, to rock, to Top 40, to dubstep.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
I'm pretty flexible, just be respectful of my time and services :)
How did you get started doing this type of work?
When I was in a boy's home I was introduced to Beethoven's music, after hearing his infamous "Moonlight" sonata I knew right then and there that I needed to do music. Since then I've been involved in numerous types of projects and now I currently record, produce, mix, and master at my own studio in Woodcrest.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Typically I do house parties, school functions, and bar/clubs. There is always something unique to love about each different venue small and large.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I did a private new year's party that was about 5 hours long, not my biggest show but I loved how the crowd was so into it.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Check out a musician's demos and be sure their musical tastes fit what you need and your event. Have a budget in mind, you can always negotiate with most artists (we're used to it!) however most artist's worth their salt won't bother with a request without some amount you're willing to start with. If you have specific musical tastes be sure to mention that so that you can find the proper DJ for your event. If you have no idea how much DJ's cost then budget about $100/hour and negotiate from there.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
I wish customers knew that to do anything well is hard and requires lots of work. Although we musicians may make it seem easy it's taken us a long time to figure out how to do it effortlessly. The business side of music is just like any other job, it's a fun job but it's still a job.
