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.Sep 2, 2018Verified
DJ Drake was an excellent part of prom! He was fun and played a lot of good songs that everyone could enjoy. His setup with the lights only added to the overall experience. The lights were amazing and created a really cool atmosphere for the dance. I highly recommend him!May 1, 2018Verified
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.Oct 5, 2017Verified
DJ Drake was able to work my event on short notice, he responded quickly to my inquiry, clearly communicated what equipment he could provide, and gave us perfect soundtrack to a great night. I highly recommend him.Jul 11, 2017Verified

- 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.
