DJ Duggan DJ'd a 40th birthday party I threw for my wife. I gave him guidance on music and how I wanted the night to unfold---from cocktail hour to rock-led to dance party, and he nailed it. It's not always easy to get a mixed group onto the dance floor, but he read the crowd well, and everyone ended up dancing. When we needed to make a couple announcements throughout the night, he handled it like a pro--which he clearly was. Most importantly, the guest of honor had the time of her life. I would definitely hire DJ Duggan, again.Mar 27, 2017Verified
Pat did an excellent job with our wedding. We had a few requests that he absolutely met and he also added some additional equipment needed for our ceremony. It seemed like almost everyone was up and dancing and Pat kept it going all night. Our guests loved the wedding and we all had an awesome time. I would highly recommend Pat to anyone for an event.Dec 20, 2015Verified

Pat did a great job, stayed in the background and played special requests whenever we asked. Had the place jumping with his selections, and that was exceptional given the number of 68 year olds at our 50th high school reunion. I'd hire him again in a second.Oct 12, 2015Verified
Hired him for our wedding on 8/29/2015 and we are so glad we did!!! He promptly responded to all my obnoxious emails that lead up to our big day. He was so accommodating and adjusted to all of our quirks without any hesitation. I would recommend him over and over again!! Everything thought he was AWESOME!!! Thanks for being a part of our wedding day!!Sep 19, 2015Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Hourly fees generally range from $100 to $200. Pricing is dependent upon the amount of time booked, equipment required, performance needed, and the type of event.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I graduated college with a BA in English Lit and a minor in Philosophy. My grad school classes have all in been in education, so I'll admit that's not terribly related to dj'ing. I'm self-taught. A few years after college, having spent most of my free time playing guitar or drums in various band situations that never got anywhere, I took it upon myself to develop what I had started to learn as a college radio station disc jockey, and learned how to DJ. I had already taught myself how to play guitar well enough to teach others how to play, so teaching myself how to DJ wasn't a huge leap. Much of what I learn today is about technological developments and how that affects my approach to DJing, and I like to have the most modern and stable equipment available.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I've always liked music and always will. I liked the idea of DJing as a kid, but never had the equipment. When I picked up the guitar, it became another appendage, but DJing was never far from my mind. I've always wanted to be a musician, trying hard during and after college, but had little luck forming successful bands. Being solo looked like a more viable path so I steered toward DJing. A job managing the sales team at Guitar Center allowed me to buy gear affordably and that really helped me get started. I still love to play guitar and have even played classical musical at a wedding ceremony, but DJing has offered me a simple way to be involved with music in a subtle but important way.
