About Professional DJ Services

hired 6 times on Thumbtack

How does your service stand out?

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. I've shared the stage with bag pipers and knights in armor. I can't wait to see what the next one brings.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

This isn't just a job. I really enjoy it. I get to meet new people celebrating a special time in their lives.

Question and answer

Q. What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

A. I like to meet a prospective customer in person whenever possible. That helps me and the client be comfortable as to what we are expecting from each other. Sometimes that can't be done. I had a bride book my services while she was serving on board ship in the Persian Gulf.

Q. What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

A. I've been a DJ over 20yrs. I do 3 to 4 weddings a year between club bookings. I'm just about a dinosaur. The younger club set call me Papaw Funk. "I may have one foot in the grave, but I'm still rockin"

Q. How did you get started doing this type of work?

A. Sold my communications company and semi-retired managing 2 servers and 80 websites. A friend I knew 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. I think many DJs make the mistake of playing songs they like. Usually good songs, but they fail to connect with the audience.

Q. What types of customers have you worked with?

A. Wedding receptions, Christmas parties, Valentine dances, birthdays, anniversaries, and reunions. Corporate events and special occasions.

Q. Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?

A. I recently did a wedding and reception on Friday, traveled 150 miles Saturday for a block party gig. Then a high school reunion that evening. Went off without a hitch. It's not unusual to book back to back gigs. But it was unusual to be booked that solid. We had a great time at all events.

Q. What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

A. A DJ should offer a written agreement, provide references upon request, and require a deposit to reserve the DJ services for the date of your event. It is also good to meet your DJ in person before making a decision.

Q. What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?

A. A professional DJ cares as much about having a successful event as his customer does. We take the time to plan and prepare for a performance and won't mind questions. This is your event and we want it done exactly as you want it done. You will likely get several quotes from various DJs and they may be several hundred dollars difference in price.
Don't be hesitant to ask why a DJ is priced so low or high. The cheapest may not be a bad DJ and the most expensive may not be a good one.
Ask to see a copy of the contract before you make a decision.
Be sure the DJ has redundant equipment. You don't want everything to come to a halt because something essential breaks down.
If you have special requests make them a part of the written agreement.
