About this pro

How does your business stand out?

The ability to deliver in a professional manner, yet doing so in a way that entices and appeals to one's musical sense. I enhance patron's party experiences.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I love seeing persons move when I play. I play with high energy and an upbeat spirit, and so I like to see the reaction in their steps, their body movements or their faces. No matter what the occasion, music should make a difference, slow or fast, the reaction makes me appreciate my job more.

    DJ Otis is the man for all my parties from now on from the moment the dancefloor was open he kept it jumping. At first we were wondering about is abilities but his reviews showed he was fully capable and man did he deliver. He was on time with the requests and even join us on the dancefloor a few times. our guest absolutely loved him and kept asking for his contact. He is doing my aunts party this weekend and I cant wait for part two. I have no regrets choosing him and the price was just right.

    Otis Smith did an excellent job at my daughter's wedding reception. He was easy to get in touch with, very affordable, punctual, played great music and made the reception a fun party! I would highly recommend him and would call him again if I ever need a DJ. Thanks Otis. Everyone loved You! Kaye

    They showed up two hours prior and quickly filled the air with music. They were very professional and jolly. They cater to every quest and keep the dancehall floor moving. They continue to impress throughout the night with the crowds favorites. DJ Otis transition were smooth and kept you quessing on the next song. One guest called out DJ Otis on the dance floor and he did drop some moves, another highlight of the night. I can't wait for our next reunion as I have already booked him. This is top class organization and I found great joy in giving him a big tip.

    Wonderful Wedding DJ!
    Otis was awesome. We decided to book him based on his professional nature and extensive music library. In speaking with him, I could immediately feel he understood exactly what I was trying to achieve. He would never shy from a challenge and always offered suggestions or past experiences to help us determine what might be best in each situation. My Father In-Law wanted to create a 5-6 song mash-up for the Father/Daughter Dance that seemed fairly complicated. It became one of the many highlights of our night. Otis was never concerned about being able to achieve that goal and offered to meet with my Father In-Law separately to work on the mash-up, which he did. Our Officiant was concerned about the microphone being able to pick all three of us up at the alter/steps. Otis assured her it would work well and went through quite a few tests and troubleshooting to make sure it did. He also offered to get another microphone if needed which made everyone feel at ease. The night went perfectly. We had so many compliments about the music and how well it was put together. Otis did an absolutely wonderful job. He was professional, courteous, and jolly. A great addition to our Wedding and a man we greatly appreciate.

    He told me not to worry he'd b there by 3 he was over an hr late! He seemed like it was his 1st time being a dj. He promised he would handle keeping things running smooth...... Nope it was awful; late on songs, horrible finding a song, had no idea what was goin on. He told me hed use up lighting n NOTHING! Honestly my true opinion.....use anyone else!

    Meh
    Setup happened about an hour and a half before we planned for the wedding to start so panicked had well set in. The phone calls weren't answered or returned. Couple of audio problems causing of deafening static occurred randomly. Music was sub-subpar. Celine Dion and more cliché songs. Page if requested songs that went largely ignored. Missed ques for requested songs during certain events, but got some at least. Requesting something more modern and lively for music resulted in Ain't No Mountain High Enough.

    DJ performed for our annual New Years Eve cruise, as people were showing up, throughout the cruise and sailing back to shore. DJ Otis really exceeded our expectations and was a pleasure to work with. All of our customers are still talking about what a great DJ we had that night and are we going to have him back. We are actually wanting to hire him regularly after such a great review! Otis played a wide range of music and catered to the passengers that were in front of him, as they changed, so did his music. Could not have been any better!

    Otis was the DJ for my daughter's 16th birthday. He was timely and professional. The kids had great time dancing and really enjoyed the light show that was part of the package. The party ran a little past 11 pm which got the attention of our local Sherrif. If you have a hard stop you need to tell him because he will keep the party going!

    From the moment he hit the room, DJ Cyrax quickly surveyed the area and set up his equipment and was ready to go relatively quickly. He also provided us with quick solutions with ceremony sound problems that occurred because of the venue. The music levels were appropriate for the room. He kept the music flowing and people up and moving. He had a number of the songs we requested on hand as well as others to cater to guest requests. Song transitions were smooth. The event was a success and we appreciate his services.

    Glad to have worked this team. They kept in contact with the Brides and wedding director, and when the big night arrived so did they. The DJ kept the crowd involved and played all the special request. It was fun. If I ever have need of music entertainment Cyrax Sound will be the team I will think of first.

    Otis was hired last minute to play at Provost Academy SC's prom bc our previous DJ arrangements fell through. He was more than willing to accommodate our requests and charged us a very reasonable rate. He arrived early, was very professional, and did a great job. He helped us make announcements, took the students' requests and played them promptly and had everyone in attendance on their feet and enjoying the night
