    Have a great evening hosting over 400 people. The hit for the evening was the karaoke with the teens and children which Rich handled so well.

    Thanks, Glenn, for the great review. It was my pleasure to serve as your entertainment provider for the fall festival. I am looking forward to seeing you again next year, or sooner, if you need my services.

    Hello. I am an all around music supplier service. I am an entertainer with a love for music. My service includes: DJ, Karaoke, Live Oldies Shows and Trivia Quiz Shows. With my DJ service, I have a vast assortment of songs for your listening and dancing pleasure, and more is added every week. The songs range from the 1940's through todays top forty hits.

My karaoke library is filled with songs that you grew up with, along with today's top hits. My live oldies show consists of songs from the '50s through the '70s. I have all of my own equipment. I do not rent anything. All of my music is digital and downloaded on a laptop computer for ease of mobility. I utilize three different set-ups that allow me to choose the proper size for the venue. I can also provide lights for the dance floor. I am a member of the National Association of Mobile Entertainers and I carry liability insurance. I truly enjoy entertaining and providing a good time for my clients and their guests. It allows me to share my passion for music with others in a fun and fulfilling way.

      Q & A

      • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
        I do not use a standard pricing procedure. My price is based on the type and size of the event and what extras they may request. It is what I feel to be the best price and most accurate for my client. The client is not being overcharged for travel or for any other extras they didn't request or don't require.
      • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
        After initial contact, I try to meet with the client and go over their expectations and desires. I then recommend or offer suggestions that may help in making their event more pleasurable and memorable. I work with my customers to help them achieve their expectations.
      • How did you get started doing this type of work?
        Music has always been my hobby. I enjoyed music since I was 5 years old, Listening to my mother's Elvis Gold Records album got me hooked. I always wanted to be an entertainer, but never really put the emphasis into it until several years back. I started out by lip-syncing to Elvis songs, then I started singing in public. All the while, family and friends would ask me to DJ for them at a party or function they were having. That's when I decided to start my own entertainment business, offering DJ and karaoke services, and live performances.
