Introduction: Since my calendar is up to date, if you receive a bid from The Diplomat I am available for the date. Our goal is to create memorable events to make people feel good!! We specialize in "Keeping It Hot" Parties for The Dancers and the Listeners! We season the music with Hot Tracks from Back in The Day mixed with new Hits. Theme parties are also a specialty for The Diplomat! Songs with profanity will not be played (radio edited clean versions are OK). The Diplomat loves his job and celebrates diversity. My clients have always proven to be a rewarding source of enjoyment. The unique requests people suggest are maps to Gold Mines !! My clients always educate me and refresh my memory about certain songs. I only need to be a good listener. The music from venue to venue makes this the best job on earth!! Since explicit lyrics have proven to be disrespectful to many people, explicit lyrics will be sanctioned (radio edited clean versions are OK).

Marly M.

DJ

Honestly the best DJ we’ve ever worked with! We hired him for our kids party back in June and he went above and beyond. He even brought entertainment games for the kids. The take away for us was that this DJ really takes pride in his craft. Thank you again! And He mixed Haitian music well without even being part of the culture! Thank you!

The Diplomat DJ (Walter) just did an event I hosted this past Saturday. The weeks leading to the event, Walter was very detailed and kept in touch with me often which was very important to me. He also went out of his way to create a CD of photo's I gave him to put on the venue screen. He even stopped at the venue to drop off extra CD’s to make sure they worked on the screens. Really went above and beyond!! Walter was on time and his set up was professional. Throughout the party, he played music and kept close attention to turning the music up and down with games and speeches. He was on his game. Hiring him was the easiest process of this entire event. Thank you again and I wish you must success. JS

The Diplomat Sound was a great DJ for our community Baby Shower. His music pleased the crowd and he had a large selection of radio edited music.
