Introduction: We've been DJ'ing since the 90's, using good ol' turntables. We're still doing it, but with updated music of course, and digital equipment. Our passion for the music has remained the same, and we believe that is the most important thing about being a DJ. 25 years of DJ'ing, plus 20+ years of working in the corporate world has taught us that customer service, response time, punctuality, reliable equipment, etc. are simply requirements for the job, and should not be compromised. Some things never change: we simply want to play the music that moves the soul.

Heidi F.

DJ

Great service from the time I made contact on Tumbtack to finishing our party that night. Very professional, everyone loved the music, the lights and laser were very cool too. This was our first DJ at a house party and after this experience will be return customers. Thanks again!

Thanks so much for having us out Heidi, it was a pleasure and you did a great job planning the party! :)

DJ

Jon, AKA: “DJ Waza” was AWESOME! He was super responsive to all of my correspondence and checked in with me days before the event to make sure we were all set. He was prompt, professional and courteous! I would highly recommend him for any special event you are planning. My 50th Birthday celebration was truly fabulous and I will never forget it! Thanks Jon for a memorable time!

I'm glad everyone had fun, and that you had a GREAT birthday, Lori! I loved the hilarious roasting session, lol. Thanks so much for letting me be part of the festivities!

Estela C.

DJ

Block Party Entertainment DJ’d my daughters 18th birthday party over the weekend. We were extremely happy with his service. He is personable and he kept in touch with me until the day of the event. He played all the songs we requested. His rate is very reasonable. If you have a need of a DJ, I highly recommend Jon (Block Party Entertainment).

I'm so glad to have helped with this party, Estela. I think the Tahitian dance lessons during the event really stole the show! Thanks again for the opportunity!

Kitty H.

DJ

I hired DJ Jon for my husband's birthday party. He was very easy to work with and responsive from booking until the day of the event. He was punctual and arrived very early to set up and do a sound check to make sure everything is ready to go for my guests. His music selections were on point and set a fun vibe for the entire event. He was open to song requests but we loved everything he played so it was not necessary. He truly loves what he does because he was jamming for 4 hours straight and always smiling. My guests even commented on that. I would hire him again in a heartbeat!
Block Party Entertainment's reply
Thanks so much Kitty! I hope your husband loved his party. The guests were awesome, the venue was really cool (the staff grabbed ALL my business cards!), and you were gracious hosts. I must have been focusing since my cheesy smile weren't in these photos, lol!

Shelby H.

Jon was a DJ for my graduation party! He did an amazing job playing music that was continuous and fun for all ages (youngest was 18 and oldest was 85). He did the whole setup without needing much help, was happy to take song requests, and he even played longer than needed after I asked. He also was happy to let me make announcements with his microphone! Great DJ! Highly recommend for any type of party and the pricing was great!

Thank you for your review Shelby! I'm glad we could help make it a great event. Congratulations again on your graduation!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Jon aka Dj Waza simply describes our most booked gig type: "My favorite niche is small or medium private events, where I can bring all sound equipment and basic lighting in a smaller car, quickly set up at a customer venue, and jam for hours!" * Pricing can vary depending on size and type of event, booking fees, transportation fees depending on distance, and extras such as larger sound systems and lighting, possible required insurance at certain public venues, etc.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    1. Contact the customer as soon as possible to discuss the details of the event, expectations, wish lists, etc. and provide tentative costs/quote. 2. Email or text detailed quote to customer. 3. Once customer accepts quote and pays the deposit, event is booked in our calendar! *Remaining balance is typically due on date of event. ** We like to keep in contact with the customer in the time leading up to the event, in case there are updates with the schedule, venue, or even small details we can help with, like "I want this specific song at this time". The more clear the communication, the better!

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have loved different types of music since childhood. My Bachelor's degree is in Mass Communications, which included internship at local radio stations. I received my informal on-the-job training from being part of a mobile DJ business for 3 years before going out on my own. My 20+ years of experience from the corporate world in the Silicon Valley has given me useful skills for this business such as leadership, project management, effective business communication, professionalism, the list goes on and on. All I had to do was make it fun ;)
