What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I regularly attend conferences and expos whenever I have the chance to and watch other DJ's daily online via YouTube, blogs and other sources. I always practice daily whether it's mixing techniques or improving my piano or saxophone chops.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
Pricing varies depending on the type of event, date and package that best suits your needs. We have options ranging from $350-$1300 per event so it just depends on what works best with your budget!
How did you get started doing this type of work?
Having a music background I realized one day that I have all this equipment from playing with bands, that eventually led to doing a company picnic for my first call center job and after that it's something I have always pursued and loved doing.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Weddings, school dances, corporate events and mitzvahs. We also take on smaller events as wells such as birthday parties and other events.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
The last wedding I did went great! There wasn't one time when the dance floor wasn't packed - yes there was a bit of drinking involved but everyone had a great time and the bride and groom thoroughly enjoyed themselves :-)
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Look for someone who not only provides quality service but also someone who you would like to invite as a guest to your wedding. If you find a vendor who you normally wouldn't invite or click with then stay away from that person.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
There is a lot of behind the scenes work and expenses that customers don't see, from maintaining equipment to keeping everything clean, staying current in music, digging into genres of music that at times are not as familiar to a DJ as other genres and regular vehicle maintenance that occurs more often than the average driver does. Also running as a legitimate business we're insured and are licensed to do business in the state of Oregon.
