About this pro

How does your service stand out?

I have the knowledge and experience (30+ years) to 'read' the room. There's no need to follow a strict list of songs. I can seamlessly add any request into the flow of the music. Unlike some DJ services, requests are willingly accepted at all times! === 90,000+ songs in my library and growing means there's sure to be something for everyone! === Club-style dance floor lighting included with ALL PACKAGES! === Many additional options to choose from, such as Uplighting, Monogram Lighting, Video Screens, Hollywood Movie Premiere Photo Backdrop, Xbox Games, Kiddie activities, and more!

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

Playing the right music at the right time to keep the dance floor full and smiles on everyone's faces! Always striving for the 'wow' factor!

Q&A

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
In this day and age, more and more is done via the Internet. My website is set up so that nearly all questions you may have are listed and answered. There are also plenty of pictures to visually help in determining just what I'm about. Lastly, the steps for booking me online are clearly defined to make the process practically seemless...almost enjoyable! But if you prefer a face-to-face meeting (or several), we can easily arrange that as well. Let's talk!
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
As a fully insured member of the American DJ Association, I'm constantly learning about new trends and the latest products. The core service may remain the same, but the latest breakthroughs in technology and presentation will always require me to keep an eye on the 'bleeding' edge! ;-)
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
I have several different prices that are based on the type and duration of the event. Much of my pricing is 'a la carte' so you know up front exactly what you're paying for. Many services charge a hefty 'all-in-one' price no matter what features you choose or how long your event is. This leads to the impression that you may be paying too much when your event may not be as complex as others may be. My pricing allows you to pick and choose from several different features so you can get the most bang for your buck!
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
ALWAYS make sure the DJ maintains the proper liability insurance. Ask for proof! In this day and age, it's essential that all parties are protected from the unexpected.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Unfortunately, there are no two people out there with the exact same musical tastes. That said, keep in mind that when picking music for your event, make sure you keep your guests in mind. Leave some wiggle room during your event so that there is time to play requests from your guests. Also, the maximum number of songs that can be played per hour is between 15-17 songs. This holds true for 'any' DJ you hire. You can't argue with the math. So try to keep your request list reasonable to fit into the time allotted and to accommodate guest requests.
