About this pro

How does your business stand out?

I give every wedding, convention or special event personal attention which makes a huge difference. My more than 20 years of experience in the photography and entertainment business enables me to offer clients the professional services they want at reasonable prices. Having worked with over 1000 brides alone during my career, I absolutely love weddings. After doing 1000 or more weddings, I have NEVER, EVER had even one dissatisfied client. That's a record I'm very proud of and one I intend to keep.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I love entertaining people and, when doing photography, capturing the real essence of the event. I enjoy working with people and providing them with a good time. Music and entertainment is my life, my career, and my passion.

    Very professional, very engaged and dedicated to making sure the entertainment is perfect. Sal far surpassed my expectations, and I would definitely use him for any future DJ needs. Thank you for the perfect entertainment, the best music, and perfect sound.

    Sal was great! He played our music that we requested and was very flexible on adding hours when we needed him for more time. He also helped with the processional ordering and layout because we hadn't really planned it very well. We will definitely hire him again if we need a DJ again!

    Sal was our DJ/Emcee for an Annual Father Daughter Dance. He arrived plenty early to get set up, played appropriate music for the age group and was very professional. I recommend his services.

    Sal is wonderful. He is very knowledgeable in a variety of events but his specialty is definitely weddings. He makes the planning process easy by providing a website to set your agenda and even pick special songs ahead of time. You are definitely dealing with a professional when you book Sal for your event.


What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Because different people require different services, it's difficult to quote one price. For instance, some people want dance floor lighting, some don't. Some need music in two locations, one for the ceremony, another for the reception. I'm sure I'm not the lowest priced around, but my prices are certainly reasonable and well within anyone's reach. More importantly, hardly anyone can match my experience and the quality of the event I provide. I've performed at well over 1000 weddings.
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Almost all of my clients are booked by phone. When doing DJ work, I have a special login section of my web site where clients can conveniently plan their wedding or event, communicate with me, search my music database, and even make online payments if necessary. I'm very easy to work with, value each and every client, and will make sure your wedding or special event is a success.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I've been doing this work since I was 14 years old. Originally from New York where I began my entertainment company, I now live in Ashville, OH. I've been on the radio, play classical guitar, DJ numerous weddings and events each year, am a magician and mentalist, a ventriloquist, and do wedding photography and portraiture. Entertainment is my full time job and just about all I've ever done.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I began playing guitar at age 13 ... and the rest is history.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Hundreds of brides, dance clubs, film festivals in NYC, proms, parties, corporate events, and about any place you can imagine.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I spend a lot of time with my brides to make certain they realize the vision they have for their wedding.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Make sure the person you're hiring knows what they're doing. You don't want to hire someone for on the job training. Anyone can buy speakers and say their a DJ. Be sure you're getting someone who can help you plan your wedding, and who will make sure it comes off as planned. Your wedding day is special ... don't scrimp on your DJ. Your DJ runs your entire event.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
You have to find someone with experience. You have to like your DJ and feel you can work with him or her. Your DJ must be someone you'll be proud to have speak at your wedding. A bad DJ can kill your event. Experienced DJ's know how to keep an event moving. Don't let someone "learn the business" on your dime.
