These guys are awesome. They Did my wedding on July 22 2017 in sf! Worth the money!Aug 1, 2017Verified
Rob was the DJ at our wedding. He also played his saxophone during cocktail hour. He is very professional, organized, and flexible. Our day was great and so was the music. Thanks Rob!Oct 16, 2016Verified
I don't even know how many compliments we got from everyone saying what an amazing job he did. Rob is hands down a nice guy, easy to work with, calm and cool and an amazing talent. You won't find a better DJ who simply does it all. Flute, sax and DJ in one. Thanks again Rob for sharing your talents on our special day.May 22, 2016Verified
Rob was exactly what I was looking for to celebrate my girlfriend's birthday. All the guests thoroughly enjoyed him as his background music set a wonderful mood. Brilliant sax player as well as being on time and very friendly. Took everyone's requests and did lovely versions of "Somewhere Over The Rainbow" and "I Left My a Heart in SF". Playing " Happy Birthday " will always be a memorable moment for Wendy! I could not of made a better choice! A guest already texted me for Rob's contact info for an event she will be having soon!Mar 23, 2015VerifiedRob B.'s reply
Thanks Steve, I had a great time! It was obvious how much you cared for her to throw such a great party.

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I ask for a 25% deposit and have a simple contract to secure the date. The reason I have a deposit is because once I have committed to perform for an event I will turn away other perspective clients who ask me to perform on that date. Therefore the deposit is non-refundable. The remaining balance is due the night of performance.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Typically, once contacted I will ask for specific details about the event to create a quote: i.e. timing, location, how many locations music will be played from (such as ceremony on the lawn, cocktails on the terrace, and reception in the banquet hall). After the client requests to book my services, I will send a simple contract, which the customer returns electronically or via snail mail, along with the 25% deposit. Once I have received the deposit and signed contract, I will send the client my music questionnaire which goes over their music preferences for the event. We will also discuss in person, over the phone, or via email what kind of music they would like for prelude to ceremony, and the various stages of the event. On the day of the event I will arrive 1.5-2 hours before music is to begin (depending on logistics of setup). I have music playing as guests arrive and throughout each stage of the event, including if there are multiple locations. My clients know that I will keep the music flowing throughout the event without breaks. I am there to provide microphones as needed for speeches and toasts, to MC the event as needed ("Ladies and gentlemen, It is my pleasure to introduce for the first time as a married couple, Mr and Mrs ______") and take music requests during the dance party. I coordinate with photographers and other event staff to ensure each moment goes perfectly, from ceremony to family, bridal party, and Bride entrances, to coordinating movement from ceremony to cocktails, cocktails to diner, couple's entrance, cake cutting, first and parent dances, and final sendoff. After the event I follow up with clients to see how I can improve and ask for feedback. I am constantly adapting to new trends and because I do this 3-5 times every week year-round I have run into almost every possible situation and have come up with creative solutions, from hotel-wide power outages to family meltdowns. I can confidently say that you are in capable hands when I am involved in your event.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I performed in many music groups growing up and in college. I was the youngest member of my jazz band starting in 7th grade rather than high school. I started performing regularly in night clubs at 15 years old. I performed in the local university jazz band as a junior in high school, and graduated early to move to London with its thriving club scene. I subscribe to many music blogs and also check the music charts often. I am constantly remixing new songs to play at events, and also via social networking follow and interact with many people in the event industry. I often discover and invest in new technology to keep up with DJing. I recently watched a video of Armin van Beurin (one of the top EDM DJs in the World) doing a tutorial with his large bulky books of cds for use while he DJs. This was filmed only 4 years ago, now I don't know any DJs who dj with actual CDs anymore. I use high quality .wav files on a dedicated hard drive when I am mixing, for best quality and least chance of equipment failure. Because I am involved in the club scene and also do many events and private parties (weddings, corporate functions) I can bring the new sounds and music which people would like to have at their wedding or event, but also with the professionalism, customer service, and quality of an event musician.
