Introduction: My background is a bit of an interesting one... I've been spinnin' since 2001 and started my roots back in Youngstown, Ohio playing house, trance, and top 40 remixes in some of the best clubs the place had to offer. When I moved down to Myrtle Beach in 2004 I started building my reputation and gigs from scratch all over again. I played my first MB gig at "Tha Bar" on 8th Ave. north, quickly built a following and boosted the business, and would pack that place on a regular basis for months on end. My style and music selections got me noticed by some other places, including Club Kryptonite, one of the top 100 clubs in the US, who placed me in the Cherry Lounge as a resident. It also earned me a two year residency at one of the hottest after-hours spots at the beach named Club There. I've been featured at the back deck party at Senor Frogs many-a-time, spent some time at Red Rooster "Ultra Saloon" while it was the hot spot in town, as well as performing up on the north end at The Spanish Galleon, which is one of the longest lasting clubs in the area, This city goes through many changes and as such I've played lots of other gigs throughout my time living on the Strand. I built quite the following (much of which I still have) and enjoyed myself tremendously. Now, I'm an open-format DJ that plays all genres of music at all sorts of venues. My 4000W EV sound system can handle just about any size area, and I have a full multimedia setup along with a long range professional multi-unit wireless microphone system for speaking events. My expensive music library covers all generations and genres of music to fit any crowd, and I have the skills to mix those genres together to create a great atmosphere. As far as my fit for any client or business goes, they'll be getting a veteran DJ that knows the game, and knows it very well. I've seen SO many new faces come into this scene, for dirt money (which certainly makes them attractive to a venue) and simply crank their speakers as loud as possible, play nothing but the Billboard Top 40 list, not give a damn about the crowds and what they want to hear, and not have any vested interest in helping the venue make money. But, Me? Let's just say I am the extreme opposite. With me you'll get someone who comes in at least an hour early to set up equipment, sound check it, and then fine tune it to make it the best listening experience for the customers. I play some of the newest songs out there, of course, but I NEVER play a set-in-stone song list, I always ensure to bring in songs that people have never heard, throwbacks that never get old, and I mix genres you'd never expect to hear go together, and I make it sound like it did in the studio. My other talent? Reading crowds. I've always held pride in the fact that I pay as much attention to my venue and its customers as I do my music. Let's face it, if you're not making money, how can I expect to? I can work a crowd to do whatever it is the venue wants, whether that be chill, full on dance, or working them to go throw down for 30 minutes to work up their thirst and then change the mood to send them to the bar to open their wallets and buy some drinks. I've always believed that's part of what makes a good DJ a great one; the ability to read their crowd and adapt. I've always kept up on my true performance style of Top 40 remixing, EDM, Big and Progressive House, Trance, and so much more. I've adapted my style to bringing ALL genres of music into my sets including Funk, 80's Metal, 90's Hip Hop, and tons of other hits that the people want to hear. I can now truly cater to any crowd in an open format and still throw a party in any venue because I've opened myself up to every possibility of performance styles. I crave music, and I love to play with it to make it my own, and as such, I find the most amazing combinations for remixing and blending that I can throw down with at any time. My abilities, combined with my pro equipment, allow me to be a step above the run-of-the-mill DJ's you might find out there by the handfuls.

Tony B.

DJ X Factor is the best DJ I have experienced. He DJ-ed my wedding in July of 2011. We had a very mixed crowd and was able to keep the conservative bunch happy and provided a "fun" time for the younger crowd later in the evening. I only had to give him a couple of suggestions for the playlist and he put together a perfect selection. He was able to read the crowd and adjust as people came and left. If I ever need a DJ again, he's the only one I will call!

Brent was the DJ at my wedding in October 2011. He is awesome! He went above and beyond our expectations. He is very calm cool and collected and knows how to get a crowd up and moving. I also had the opportunity to attend another wedding he worked at and he was as awesome as ever. You can't go wrong hiring this guy.

FAQs

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    Back when I had my first chance to put my hands on Pro DJ equipment in a club...I got the bug to take my DJ abilities and profession to the next level, and never looked back. I took that experience and turned it into a life's passion. I have been a Pro DJ for over 16 years now, and I've toured the East Coast performing in some of it's greatest venues as... DJ X Factor.

  • What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

    Do your homework! Find out what exactly the vendor has to offer, and at what prices. Find out if they are closed-minded or open to anything, because the closed-minded ones usually don't give you the attention and creative input that you deserve! Always remember that YOU are the customer, and the event is your special occasion, not the vendors, and as such, you need to make sure you are happy with the whole experience! Remember, you shouldn't end up seeing paying a provider as cost or a bill...they should be viewed as an investment into creating your an amazing event!! You need to always be sure you're walking away content with your situation and the decisions you've made!
