Thank you Luke for taking the time to leave me a review here. I really enjoyed your family and friends. I was honored to be a part of your special day!
Sassy Patty was a joy to work with. Her love for the job and care she showed for our Bride and Grooms wishes was fantastic. Would highly recommend her.Jul 25, 2018VerifiedDJ Sassy Patty's reply
Abigail what a great day it was too. Thank you so much for your kind words. I'm so happy you found me. It was just icing on the cake that you gave me another opportunity to be out at Diamond Woods. It was my pleasure.
It was great working with Patty planning the music for our wedding. Everyone had a blast and the dance floor was full until the end I'd the night.Oct 6, 2015VerifiedDJ Sassy Patty's reply
Kelly I had so much fun. Both your families and friends were great. Thank you thank you so much. And I look forward to seeing you soon. What an incredible day.
I hired Patty to DJ for my class reunion over the weekend. She was very punctual and professional and had a GREAT selection of music for the evening. I would not only recommend her but I would also use her services again. Well done.Jul 27, 2015VerifiedDJ Sassy Patty's reply

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I charge a $100 nonrefundable retainer/deposit to hold the date. My base price is $400 for 4 hours of play time and goes up from there depending on the event, location and venue. Additional hours are $25. If I need to travel over approximately 15 miles I will assess the distance and charge extra potentially for that as well. I do not charge for preparation services or setup and tear down fees. However if I am required to set up and tear down more than once due to a wedding and reception (for example) being in two separate areas or locations then I will assess a $50 fee for each. Rehearsals for weddings are a minimum of $150. I do not charge extra to provide some lighting or karaoke.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have received the Thumbtack Best of 2015 and 2016 awards. I am a trained musician and classically trained vocalist. I have participated in thousands of weddings from multiple angles in my lifetime as well as many other events and parties. I worked as assistant and paralegal to the North Marion County Justice of the Peace and I also worked as a church secretary for a large congregation church. I constantly keep informed of updates to music equipment, professional DJ software and technology. I stay subscribed to various DJ training programs as well as DJ subscriptions regarding current events and technology. I stay on top of current top music and trends.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?With my background in music and performance as well as working in churches and the legal field with a judge/justice of the peace it was only natural. I went to college for music performance and education. At the time it happened I wasn't even thinking about becoming a DJ but a good friend of mine took the time to convince me it was a good idea. Boy did I laugh but look at me today. I would have never thought I would be doing this over 19 years ago. I'm good at what I do and I couldn't be happier.
