Great DJ. Easy to work with, very nice, highly responsive. He was a very big part of our event being a success. Would most definitely work with him again if I ever need a DJ for another event. Thank you for the great work!Mar 10, 2020VerifiedDJ Shookie Sounds & Entertainment's reply
Howard, you guys were the best! That’s one of the most enjoyable shows I’ve ever done in 30yrs! Everyone was great and a good cause to boot! I just wish I had more time to get all the songs played! Incredible night with awesome people! Thank you for letting me be a part of it!
After much deliberation our committee chose a different DJ, but DJ Shookie Sounds was very quick to respond to our questions and provided us with a lot of information about his work. It was a tough decision and I’m sure we will consider him for future events!Nov 15, 2019VerifiedDJ Shookie Sounds & Entertainment's reply

Jolene thanks for the kind words! Thanks so much for allowing me to be a part of your reunion. You have an awesome family!!
Jeff was the DJ at my wedding! He was able to DJ at the rehearsal and our reception! I was a bit of a bridezilla and wanted everything perfect! Jeff made sure the songs I wanted were played at the right time and created a great vibe for the reception!Nov 16, 2019DJ Shookie Sounds & Entertainment's reply

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?As a general rule for most DJ's in the research triangle area of NC, we charge on average $100 per hr. I on the other hand base it on the event, hours involved and location, (inside/outside). Ex. Being outside is a much easier that using a service elevator to go up 5 flights of stairs or going thru difficult hallways and steps to get equipment to the correct spot. I've been put in some very strange locations for an event..lol.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Initial phone consultation or emails about what is needed. Then we determine whether a prior to the event meeting is necessary or not most of the time it is not. We then discuss the schedule for the event and get the "must have songs" lined up. Once we agree on a price I can take full payment then, half upfront to book the date and the other half the week of the event or when I show up.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I'm college educated and worked at WLOS TV Channel 13 out of Asheville NC in editing, sound and productions as an intern required for my degree. I started Djing when I was 15 and I was able to pay my way thru college because of it. I was on the NACA (National Alliance for Campus Activities) committee for NC and DJ'ed high schools and colleges in the southeastern US.
