What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I will do a phone quote and ask what the customer is looking for in a Dj such as (music, genre, guest count, will alchol be served, date and time of the event, so at that point I can give them a fair and honest quote. I will go into detail about the equipment that will be used at that price point and if the client is interested, I will hold their date for 10 days to give them time to think it over. Once they confirm the date, I will email the client a PDF file which would include the contract, song sheet and specific details they desire. They then, only mail me back the contract and the deposit and them, about 2 weeks prior to the performance date I will consult with the client and go over any and all details.

What types of customers have you worked with?
I do more wedding than any other events, I specialize in wedding and receptions. I am the Dj with experience to read the crowd and plays what works. No 2 events are ever the same, so it takes someone with knowledge and experience to keep your guest dancing and entertained. I have also worked with many corporations and companys for Christmas Parties and New Years Eve Events.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
When looking for a Dj... Make sure your Dj is experienced, how many events has he "personally Dj'ed, will the person you are booking with actually be your Dj or will someone else play at my event.
