I hired Richie for my sister and her fiancé's surprise engagement party and it was definitely a great idea! He's a great DJ and even was able to set up karaoke for anyone to participate in, which was definitely the hit of the party! I highly recommend Richie's services for anyone looking to have great music and professionalism! Thanks again Richie!Apr 25, 2017VerifiedHigh Caliber DJ's reply
Thanks Andrea, Glad everyone enjoyed themselves! Best wishes to the happy couple!
Richie Hodge did such an excellent and professional job. He was very personable and friendly. The guests were so happy with the music that he selected and with the Karoeke. So many guests commented that having Richie as the DJ really added to the fun of the party. I was impressed with also the lights that he set up. I am very serious when I say that I want him to save next New Years Eve to come back and do it again.Jan 2, 2017VerifiedHigh Caliber DJ's reply
Thanks for your kind words Christina. Tammy & I had fun doing your NYE Party! Hope we can do future parties!
Richie was on time, had the variety of music requested, knew when to nuance the volume and stayed longer than the contract stated. Excellent DJ!!May 9, 2016VerifiedHigh Caliber DJ's reply

Richie did a great job as dj for our party last evening. He had a huge selection of our favorite songs for our guests to listen and sing along with. He arrived early to set up and was ready when our guests arrived. It was a fun evening!May 1, 2016VerifiedHigh Caliber DJ's reply
Thank You Vickie & Jim, It was fun working with great hosts as yourselves! Hope we can do it again soon!
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I can be flexible with my fee, I will do my best to stay with-in you're budget. I would hate to lose anyone's business over a few dollars. I'm reasonable
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Agreeing on a fee for the job and then going over details of the event. What songs would you like played? What announcements?, etc. Pretty much going over a game plan of what you expect for your event and making sure that I am prepared to deliver my best services. I typically don't require a deposit or contract (unless you want one). Just your commitment is fine with me.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I've been a professional musician/singer/entertainer all of my adult life. I've been a DJ and hosting my own karaoke show full time since 2002. I can do straight DJ music and also include karaoke if you wish. Karaoke is usually a nice addition to any party but purely your option.
