Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: There are three things that make my service stand out: Quality Service, Simplicity, and Budget Friendly Pricing Options. I want the process of hiring me as your DJ to feel right. I use professional and high quality equipment. I look for ways to add value to every event by asking additional questions to uncover hidden areas of interest. I maintain reasonable prices that are responsive to the market, yet consistent with my business practices. It is difficult to write in words how my business stands out from others. I believe that there are many other excellent DJ's in the area, but those who have an opportunity to work with me are getting a once in a lifetime experience. My customers always comment on how liberated, confident, excited, and at peace they feel after consulting with me about their event needs. Send me a message. Setup an initial consultation meeting and see for yourself. Playing music on the loud speakers is fun! I have always enjoyed music since I was a small kid. My parents own a really cool old skool stereo with the FM tuner, double deck tape player/recorder, CD player, and record player. I used to sit in front of that stereo with my headphones on for hours. The joy of listening and playing music is still something that I like to make a part of my daily routine. I have been producing music in my home studio since 2005, and I have two albums available on the market. My role as a DJ is an extension of what I do in the studio. It actually combines two parts of me that are different yet complimentary: people skills and musical talent. In my business/professional career, I use my leadership skills to manage dynamic teams. As a DJ I have to manage people and tasks while delivering high quality service. On paper, this is an easy task, but in reality this takes patience, skill, and diligence. The other thing that I enjoy about what I do is that I have an opportunity to create my own schedule and be my own boss. In an ideal world, I would make all of my income from DJ and music entertainment work; however, for now this is only a part time business so I truly do cherish every moment that I get to do it.

Aaron was amazing! We hired him for our wedding and he was so easy to work with. He showed up on time and did everything exactly how we asked. His music selection was fanatastic and all of our guests commented on how great he was. He really took control of the day and kept us on schedule. Our coordinator even told us that he was the best DJ she had ever worked with. I would definitely hire him again!

DJ

Aaron was so great! He made our high school's formal Winter Ball a blast for students while keeping the music appropriate. Kids loved that he took their requests, and on Monday I heard most of those hard-to-please students saying the DJ was awesome! He was professional, pleasant and prompt which made my night much less stressful. I will call Aaron every time I am in charge of dance organization. I only hope he doesn't become so busy that we can't book him! Thank you Aaron!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    We keep our prices simple. Our goal is to provide quality DJ services at a reasonable price. You may view our pricing info on our website.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    When I work with a new customer, I like to setup some time to get to know one another. I believe that there is something special about working with people who I have made a connection with. In fact, I will only work with people who believe that I am the perfect DJ for their event. Here is what you can expect from me. - Schedule a virtual consult with us - Let us know when you are ready to book - Sign a contract and pay the $200 deposit fee - Plan your event with us (give us a songlist and any associated timelines) - Have your event - Pay your final invoice and write us a review I recognize that although I am very familiar with the process of hiring a DJ, this may be a little intimidating for many people. I am easy to talk with, and I will make you feel comfortable by answering your questions with genuine care.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have an active Lynda.com account where I learn different topics related to audio and music production, but for DJ work I am mostly engaged in the art of mixing songs together; which takes time and continual practice. Many of the educational opportunities for DJ's exist in peer learning so YouTube actually has lots of training material for me. I also devote some time to practicing my skills. I am very critical of the work I do so I aim to have near perfect song transitions. There are also a lot of technical skills to learn about using the equipment so I spend time learning how to be more effective and efficient with my equipment.
