I am a first year student council sponsor for a Chicago area high school and I booked Brandon to DJ our homecoming dance. He is extremely responsive, professional and he uses very high quality sound equipment. He did an excellent job playing a variety of music to ensure that all students enjoyed themselves. He got great reviews from students and I look forward to booking him again in the future.Oct 8, 2019Verified

I needed a DJ to provide sound system and music for a recent world record attempt that I hosted as part of an international conference recently in Naperville. Brandon met my budget and we had a meeting before the event where I discussed my music and event needs for the event. Brandon was on time to set up for the event and his interaction with the MC made for a great partnership that resulted in music being played at the right time to keep the crowd and the record attempt engaged. The sound system he used was quite sufficient for the ballroom space we had. He is self sufficient and knows what to do when on site. It a relief to have folks like Brandon who are young, eager and committed to doing a great job. I could not have been more satisfied. It was his first time witnessing a world record being set and I was happy to afford him that experience. His work was flawless and I'd use him again for sure.May 31, 2019Verified

I am the Coordinator of Student Activities at a local college. DJ Trakboy was the DJ hired for our annual Winter Formal. From the moment we connected online to him leaving the dance, I received nothing but professionalism from him. His was very easy to communicate with (ex: quickly responded to emails and calls), came completely prepared to the event (ex: arrived on time, had all sound and light equipment), and played exactly what was asked on him (ex: My college only allows certain content in songs, and so he ensured there were no expletives or overly explicit subject matter) My students loved his music selection and sound quality. Can't wait to hire him again!Dec 12, 2018Verified

DJ Trakboy was awesome! He provided an extremely professional service. He kept our guest entertained and on the dance floor for the whole night! We will definitely use him for future events.Dec 5, 2018Verified
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I start out with going over the playlist with the customer. This way I can figure out what they like and dislike as far as music. Djing is being able to please the customer by what he or she likes and mixing it with what you like to get the party going. Djing is an art that is crafted by making sure you keep the crowd on the dance by smooth blending (transitions) and song selection. Playing music accordingly is a must for the audience, whether its a wedding, birthday party, award ceremony or social get together. That is what I strive for as a DJ.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?Performing for the NAACP gala last year was a stepping stone for me as an DJ. I met a lot of my clients that I eventually worked with for weddings and Birthday parties. I also gained a lot of experience from that event. It was my first time performing in front of a huge crowd. At this time I was only one year in, so I considered this event as one of my big boy jobs that molded me into a professional DJ.
- What types of customers have you worked with?I work with anyone who is looking for wedding services, Birthday parties, Corporate events, Holiday Parties...etc.
