Q. What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
A. Yes, I am always aware of the newest hits and the state of the art cutting technology to purchase for my business. People require instant gratification from their DJ. If they want to hear a song in 10 seconds they don't mean 10 minutes. You need to always keep up with the times!
Q. Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
A. No I don't, typically for private parties I charge $100- an hour. For weddings my fee is $150- with unlimited consultations
Q. How did you get started doing this type of work?
A. Looked like a fun job! I love having fun, and I love seeing other people have fun! It was an easy choice for me.
Q. What types of customers have you worked with?
A. I get a lot of requests to perform at birthday and wedding events.
Q. Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
A. Worked a wedding and got a lot of compliments about the sound and smoothness of the flow from song to song
Q. What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
A. Communicate with the DJ as much as possible through email to keep them informed of any song updates or changes to your event you may have. Communication is key to both parties involved!!
Q. What questions should customers think through before talking to
professionals about their project?
A. That it takes patience and the ability to be a people person to be a DJ. You are playing the music the client wants to hear, not what the DJ wants to hear.
There is also a lot of lifting and planning that goes into setting up the equipment/putting together the music mix to the clients specifics. A good DJ should arrive an hour early before show time to ensure everything is working properly.
