He's really nice and good to work with, very focused on his work.Jan 8, 2014
I've been to a few of his events and worked with him personally a few times. He's a decent DJ, but doesn't have a wide range of music. He generally plays EBM, Trance, Dubstep, and other "club" music, but doesn't know much about mainstream music. When asked to play top 40's, he couldn't provide. As well, he doesn't work with others in a professional manner. He has a hard time collaborating with other DJs that may be at the event and he doesn't have very good time management skills. Overall, I can only give him two stars.Dec 5, 2013James S.'s reply
when there is a dj line up each dj tell the promoter or the event coordinator what genera they were going to play. i was not top 40's i was schedule to play EBM trance and dub step. you don't step out side of what your scheduled or you might step into a track another dj was going to play.
He says he can get me into the club for free..........but then I had to pay. WTF man. He even made a phone call and made me believe he had all these connections........but when we got there he was nervous and said to switch me for his other friend.Nov 13, 2013James S.'s reply
I apologize Patrick for that. sometime when you dj at a venue and another promoter is the one running the event you are at there mercy to keep a professional curtesy for the one who asked me to come out and provide my services i was not going to push the subject but i did pay for you to get in i apologize.
Does a good job overall but has a tendency to butt heads with higher level staff. Attire for event was unprofessional. We do appreciate his coming out last minute though.Sep 28, 2013James S.'s reply
I apologize for that very much but when im understaffed and no one wanted to give me directions on what they wanted im forced to take matters into my own hands. thank you fro being honest with your review. and again i do apologize.

- How did you get started doing this type of work?when i was 16 i was in a dark place in my life, emotional and physical abuse were involved. one day i wanted to end it all it was going to be so easy i had it all planned out. i had the needle in my arm and before i pushed the plunger down i heard a song (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xIJIQD6XCSk) i stopped what i was doing pulled the needle out of my arm and from that day forward i dedicated my life to music. every person has an outlet sucide is never the answer find your harness it be safe and responsible about it.
- What types of customers have you worked with?Dj'ing and sound setup for large or small events. I have also provided help with setting up an event with employers, planning the guest list, music, event length, and location. Examples of events I have helped with planning are Sacramento Street Fairs, High School Dances, and some concert events.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?I would suggest they meet face to face with potential provider, ask for their resume, and listen to a sample of their music or video of an event they did. Don't ever hire someone without a resume or some type of references, and even after getting references, look up their references to make sure they are trust worthy.
