    Had a going away party DJ'ed by Shocking Entertainment before I left for Afghanistan and would deffinitely use their services again. Great service and had every song we requested. Their prices were very competetive and I would certainly recommend them for a gathering of any size.

    In 2008 my husband and I were fortunate enough to have Shocking Entertainment DJ our Wedding Reception. Kris Compton was very professional and had our guests up and dancing the whole night. We received many compliments on the DJ service ! Thank You Shocking Entertainment for making our special day that much more special !


What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
There is not a complicated pricing system for my company. It's simple. You, the customer, tells us what you want and we go over hours and location and agree to a fair price.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Yes, I am always looking for new and improved equipment and I am also always looking for the newest and hottest music out there.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
Long story short. I was a patron of a bar on the east side of Columbus during an Ohio State Game and the guy running the music kind of didn't know what he was doing so I just decided to go up and help him. The bar hired me as their DJ and ever since then I have been DJ Shocker
What types of customers have you worked with?
My most common jobs are Wedding Receptions, Graduation Parties, Birthday Parties, and Karaoke jobs at many local establishments... But if there is to be a dj at your event, we can provide one.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I host Karaoke every Friday at a bar on the south end of Columbus and I am very proud of that job because of how packed it gets every Friday that I am there :)
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Make sure you hire someone who you think you can get along with on a personal level, and someone you think all of your guests will enjoy.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
I wish people knew how much work it really is to be a DJ. From set up to tear down, we are always working either physically or mentally.
