    Jim and his granddaughter were super. Prior to the event Jim was responsive to email questions and helped with the planning process. They arrived ahead of time and set up in a flash. Their equipment was professional and added to the decor of the hall we used for our event. They played all of the favorites we were hoping for and were able to do a last minute adjustment when our "line dancer" was unable to attend who was designed to do a small segment and give them a break. They just took it in stride and played on. Super! I would strongly recommend them for your next event.

About this pro

I've done this for several years. As regular club dj and now as a mobile dj for special events, receptions and parties. Each gig is a new experience. In addition to our standard music package we offer uplighting, projector, and Emcee service. This isn't just a job. I really do enjoy it and work hard to provide a good experience for my customers.

    Q & A

    • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
      I like to meet a prospective customer in person whenever possible. Sometimes that can't be done. I had a bride book my services while she was serving on board ship in the Persian Gulf. Since I had the same Persian Gulf experience, we connected. I got the job. Phone contact is the next best thing for introductions. I prefer email for negotiations. It leaves our conversations in writing.
    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      I was a member of a band for a couple of years. I have some formal training in music. I know the difference between a slow dance and a waltz. I enjoy Meeting new people on a new project.
    • How did you get started doing this type of work?
      Sold my communications company and semi-retired. I still maintain 2 servers and 80 client websites. A friend opened a nightclub and offered me a job as the DJ. I found that I have a knack for reading a crowd and know what to play and when to play it. That was in the 80s and I haven't been off many weekends since. I think a lot of DJs make the mistake of playing songs they like. Usually good songs, but they fail to connect with the audience. Professional systems with lights, haze, and powerful amps are only the finishing touch to the right song at the right time.
