Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: I can scan a crowd and begin playing to their personality and mix it all together in a fun and creative format that very few can deny. Plus, I just love to have a good time and I think people can see this when I'm performing. I enjoy entertaining people and making them smile, dance and ask, "what great song is this you're playing?" I get inspired by the crowd and want them to go crazy on the dance floor. When I can get consumed by the music, enjoy the moment and energy with everyone else, is when I know everything is really going well.

DJ

DJ Drake is AMAZING. He is incredibly personable, professional and he brings great energy. He knows how to keep the crowd happy, and he is great and mixing music. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking for a DJ for their wedding.

DJ Drake did a fabulous job of accommodating our musical tastes and special requests and playlist for our party. He was professional and timely - and most of all, seemed to be having a great time himself. He seems to really enjoy his job - which the guests could sense! I highly recommend him.

We hired DJ Drake for a corporate party. He was great to work with on all levels. Very professional, punctual and played an awesome selection of music. He had the floor packed. I would definitely recommend DJ Drake to anyone and I would hire him again.

DJ Drake made our party come to life. He definitely read the crowd and played music to match our style. I look forward to his performance at my husband's holiday party.

Top 40 DJ

We had a small gathering of 55 close friends and family of which 10 children/young adults. Dinner, drinks, games and of course music for listening through dinner and for dancing. DJ DRake was exceptional. Friendly, courteous, went out of his way to play all the music I hand requested. Took some requests on the spot. He arrived early, set up quickly..was nice to have some music while setting up and taking down. I got so many compliments...loved the music. I think my young grandson of 3 was his biggest fan!!

FAQs

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

    People ask me how much do I charge per hour and I explain that each venue and client differs. Many factors that need to be addressed for an event like a wedding include: Location (how many floors does the venue have, what will it take to get my equipment to the dance floor, how many set-ups will I need?) Time of year, Day of the week (rates can drop considerably if an event is on a Mon, Tues, Wed), size of crowd ( more people means more sound), Lighting, and Travel. I always try to offer the best value I can to my clients and I want them to understand that when the job is done right, it's priceless.

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

    Phone meeting. Note taking. proposal. Party!

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

    Yes, I'm always networking with other professional DJ's to learn and share equipment and music methods. Through my inquisitive nature, I learned about Power Conditioners from a photo booth owner while at an event we both worked. Come to find out Power Conditioners look like a robust surge protector, but they will also filter any noises caused by electrical interference from the surrounding building you are plugged into. Think about what happens when a vacuum cleaner is running in one room and the "static" interference interrupts the TV playing in the next room. If you ever hear a buzzing noise through a speaker, it's the same concept and I can confidently know that I am bringing the "cleanest" purest sound to my clients at any venue with this device, despite how old the wiring may be.
