About this pro

How does your service stand out?

We believe that we have a simple, but colorful DJ set-up which will complement any event, but not dominate the event. If needed, we can really provide a dynamic light show, but that would be "by request." Not only do we provide music, lights, microphones, fog machines, and a dynamic sound system, we give cd's which have much of the music that we play at a wedding reception for no extra charges. You can listen to the music from your special day and remember the good times with your family and friends. Now, who does that? DJ Rad does. Reminisce about those good times at your wedding, and hopefully, that will make you feel good about hiring DJ Rad for one of the most special days of your life.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

Our job is to try and make people relax and feel good. Music helps people create good memories of times past. It also helps people unwind when they dance.as well as allowing people to "get close" to each other in a way that they usually don't do. Getting people to mingle, meet new faces, relax, have fun, and dance and listen to great music....you can't beat it! We like to think that is part of what we should do for you.

    Johnny and his wife were amazing. We (my company) had an issue with our slideshow and they jumped right in and help fix the issue. We had an awesome time with them.

    My wedding took place in Panama City Beach in the chilly November air and Rhonda and Johnny were absolutely the best DJ's! They showed up on time and had everything set up perfect. They provided music for my ceremony and the reception.They were very professional and went abve and beyond my expectations. The wedding day music was exactly what I wanted. They had evey song choice I requested and even played what my guests requested. They even helped with my timeline of events ( cake cutting, first dance etc) as well as making announcements throughout the evening. The whole night was upbeat, fun and energetic! They never missed a beat or paused a song, except to cheer on Florida State with all my guests! Go Noles!! I would highly recommend Rhonda & Johnny and definitely hire them again in the future. Thank y'all so much for making my wedding day absolutely the best!! Rachele McCulley

    We booked DJ Rad for our wedding ceremony and reception. They did an amazing job and played exactly what we asked for. They were extremely professional, had all of our ceremony music cued perfectly. I would highly recommend them for any function.
  • James W. Jan 15, 2014
    We hired Rhonda Conrad of DJ Rad Productions to provide the music for my wife's daughter's wedding at the St. Andrew Bay Yacht Club on September 28th, 2013. It was an outdoor ceremony followed by a reception in the ballroom. They did a wonderful job with music and the timing as the night progressed. Their experience was evident in their verbal introductions and announcements. It was a very successful evening with many fond memories. We would highly recommend them to anyone that wants a professional service at a fair price.
    Rhonda C. Jan 16, 2014

    Hey James and Faith, I think the ceremony and reception was just right. The sunset was amazing and beautiful and the party was a lot of fun. Too bad it had to end!!! We are organizing a dance n mingle party, hopefully before Mardi Gras. We 'll let you know where...when Johnny gets it finalized. We need to dance some this winter. Thanks again, and tell Amanda "Hi". Rhonda

    My wedding has not occured yet, so I am not sure about the music aspect yet but I have to comment on the professionalism. I booked them about 11 months before my wedding and they have kept in contact with me all along the way. Since I live in Tennessee and they are in Florida, the constant communication makes me have no regret about hiring a DJ that I have never met! I knwo the music will be great and my wedding and reception will be unforgettable! I will update this comment after the wedding to tell you have great DJ Rad is!
    Rhonda C. Sep 11, 2013

    Hi Vivian, Thanks for the kind words...we aim to please....and play music the way you want it! We can't wait to go to Orange Beach. You have chosen a beautiful place for your wedding. We are excited for you.

    Best dj's ever. The group I run with like oldies, shag dance music. They have all of the oldies and new music you could ever want. They know how to keep the dance floor full. We always make make a point of attending any dance they are working/playing. I wish they played every weekend.
  • Joe G. Aug 30, 2013
    Good mix. Lots of recognizable music. Beats for everyone. Smooth presentation, minimum pauses.
  • Rita S. Oct 15, 2012
    Great DJ! We love to dance to her music. If you request a song she doesn't have,she will get it. Being a dancer,she knows what dancers like to hear. And she keeps up with the latest trends.
  • Ellen J. Oct 4, 2012
    Rhonda's DJ Business is "Wonderful" ... She played for our daughter's 21st birthday party ! Everyone enjoyed the music she selected & she even took requests from our guests too.. Wonderful, just wonderful...And what a variety of music she has. We sure enjoyed the music !
  • Ben H. Oct 1, 2012
    Rhonda & Johnny offer a great DJ service for a good price. They were prepared and ready for both of our events. With completely different crowds, DJ Rad played to each crowd and had all the music that was requested of them. I could not have asked for a better DJ experience.
    Rhonda C. Oct 1, 2012

    Hey Thanks for the review. We are planning a party in the near future. We'll let you know. Again thank you! Johnny

Q&A

What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Our pricing system not complicated, but there are a few "variables" that we deal with. We ALWAYS custom price all events. To provide the actual wedding ceremony music, there may be small price add-on, again, between $50-$100, depending on how much music needs to be played, multiple equipment set-ups, etc. Another important variable to consider in custom pricing would be the distance we must travel to perform our music production. Beyond 100 miles from our home base, we may charge a little extra.
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Typically, an initial contact is usually via the internet, or personal referral. We then follow-up with e-mails, texts, or phone calls. We really prefer to talk personally with our potential customers. A phone call or personal interview always gives you the best opportunity to get the right DJ for your event. Make the call ! If we are hired, we do a contract and require a $100 deposit to secure the date.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
We have been trained by some of the best dj's and entertainers in our area, We strive to learn about current trends in the DJ entertainment industry, including the most up-to-date technology, equipment upgrades, and evolution of the music and entertainment industries. We also collaborate with local and national DJ organizations to produce the most dynamic and entertaining music productions possible.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
Our youngest son, Chris, is an x-ray technician, and wanted to do the DJ biz on the side while he was going to college. Chris, Rhonda and Johnny started the dj business and we called the business "dj rad." When Chris went to nursing school, he couldn't work the business, and we have continued to build the DJ business for about 8 years. We have done over 100 weddings since we started the business.
What types of customers have you worked with?
We are doing high school proms and dances, Christmas parties, wedding receptions, birthday parties, and private parties. We have also done music at The Bucaneer Lounge, Pappy's, and the Shrimp Boat for private parties. Some of our favorite people, we have met at Snowbird private dance parties. We go to North Myrtle Beach regularly to shag dance and get the latest couples dance music and newest line dances. We love to teach the shag and line dances at parties when asked to do so. We also do free dances periodically at the various venues in and around Panama City and Panama City Beach.. We like to keep it current and make our own fun if we have to! One of the most fun things we do is to provide the music for a float in the Panama City area Mardi Gras parades. . It's almost like a battle of the bands for the different floats with the dj's playing the music on each float. It is a hoot!!!!!
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
We were contacted by a wedding planner from Atlanta, Georgia on our way to the CMA Festival in Nashville. They had a wedding and reception on the beach in Panama City Beach in just 3 weeks, and the dj that they had been in dealing with, would not call them back. So they found our phone number on the internet and called us. We were on the way to Nashville in June and talked to the client while we were traveling. We matched the price of the original dj, and booked the event. When the wedding day arrived, Hurricane Debbie was headed for the Gulf Coast. The wedding was on the beach and the wind blew and blew and blew some more. We got the service in and then it started to rain, and rain and rain. Fortunately, there was a pretty good size tent for everyone to get under. They danced for hours and the rain and wind just never stopped. It was a hurricane party! But we made it and everybody had a lot of fun. Its a wedding no one will forget! We covered our speakers with beach towels and nothing got ruined. It was crazy, but a lot of fun.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
The best advice we can offer is to hire someone who knows the music and likes people. We constantly update our music library to keep the most current and popular selections covering many genres of music. You should always hire some one who enjoys researching and acquiring specific tunes to customize music to your taste. To summarize, pick a DJ who : * loves people and is easy to get along with * loves music and knows how to "play the crowd" * constantly strives to improve his or her knowledge, skills, and actual music productions at specific events
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
One of the most important considerations is that we think it is a good idea to talk PERSONALLY with the DJ whom you are interested in hiring. You can learn a lot from this conversation. Ask them how they feel about being the music host for the type of event you are planning. Also, ask them if they have any advice about the event, which may help you plan it. A good DJ will have a lot of experience and good advice for just about any type of event you are planning. Take advantage of his or her expertise, and ask them questions you may have. You should learn a great deal about the DJ from a personal conversation.
