About this pro

How does your business stand out?

More experience (over 20 years!) than other DJ's while still offering affordable pricing

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

Each event is unique & different. This is exciting to me. I welcome the change (instead of the same old, boring, behind-the-desk job). I enjoy making people smile by playing their favorite song and creating memories that hopefully will last a lifetime.

    We had hired JT Michaels for my daughter's wedding reception in Plain City. He was amazing to have worked with. Not only is he professional but equally as engaging. He definitely went above and beyond. I will absolutely hire him in the future.

    Without JT, my dauther's 16th birthday would've been a big bust. I highly recommend hiring him for your event. He kept us all entertained for the entire party, and I will definitely be calling him for our future needs. Thanks, JT!

    J.T. followed up with me before the event to confirm everything. He arrived well ahead of schedule to set up. He did a great job with the music and had games to keep the crowd entertained. I would definitiely recomment J.T.

    He arrived early and was set up much before our event started giving us peace of mind. He was very courteous and eager to please with the music selection. Wonderful!

Q&A

What types of customers have you worked with?
Weddings (American, Greek, Indian, Latino, Jewish), Birthday Parties, Corporate Events, Fundraisers, Schools (Elementary, Middle, High), Columbus Bluejackets, Hollywood Casino, Honda Marysville, COSI, Ohio National Guard, and more!
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Plan ahead. Most hire DJ's on average 6 months - 1 year in advance. If you've waited to the last minute to hire a DJ, all the good ones will most likely be booked. So why wait? Just like taxes, don't put it on the back burner waiting until the 11th hour when you don't need to. Call up a few DJ's so you have ample time to sit down and meet with them. Have a list of questions prepared (if you can't think of any you can find many of them online by typing "questions to ask a DJ" in your search engine).
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
I'm a perfectionist. You want your wedding day to be perfect and so do I! We do more than just press Play. The amount of work that goes into preparing for each event would shock anyone. A reputable DJ will spend 10-20 hours in just pre-planning alone! That means he spends MORE time working behind the scenes than actually at your event! There's the phone calls back & forth, meeting with his clients, sometimes driving to the venue site or attending rehearsal, purchasing of music/equipment, maintenance, and so much more!
