Introduction: Quick Note: Make sure to read through this introduction as it may answer some questions you might have about my services. My name is James Jessie and I go by DJ Afrolicious. I'm 20 years old and I'm from Phoenix, Arizona and I'm currently enrolled at the University of Utah. I've been DJing for about 6 years and I'm available for weddings, parties, and all different occasions and events. I specialize in Hip Hop and Old School 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s music. While I may be new to the game, I have a lot to offer and I won't leave you unsatisfied. If you take a look in the photos section, there's a picture of what my setup typically looks like. I provide all my own equipment including speakers, a table, my turntables, and other equipment. Usually for parties or events that have less than 200 people, I'll just be bringing one speaker. For anything above 200 people, I use 2 speakers. I do provide MC services, you just have to ask me if you want me to use the microphone. I'm also available on Bark as well and there are reviews on that profile that you can refer to. For lighting, I charge an additional fee based on the amount of lights you would want. The smallest package includes a lighting stand with 4 LED RGB Lights and 2 ground lights at $100 and the biggest package has 2 lighting stands and 4 ground lights at $200. IMPORTANT NOTE: I won't be able to book an event more than 4 months in advance. It's hard for me to book stuff that far away due to my school schedule.

Afrolicious was incredible! He was on time, set up quick, had the best music, and was super cool! We hired him for a backyard party for three high school boys sharing a birthday. He played a selection of great music that everyone loved, and everyone had such a fun time with his vibe! Highly recommend!

Afrolicious did not disappoint! We hired him for a fun summer evening for High school kids who have been trapped inside from COVID. They loved his music and his vibe. They danced till the very end and the party was a hit. I would highly recommend. Kids can’t wait to do it again!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My pricing is based on the number of people and the number of hours you would want me for. To give a few examples, if your event is 25-100 people at 2 hours, my quote will be $150 flat. If your event is 200 people at 2 hours, my quote will be $125 per hour. You can contact me of course if you wanna negotiate pricing.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    First, I like to get all of the basic information about the event including the location, the number of people, and the number of hours. After that, I ask for a playlist of songs or a number of artist/genre requests that way I can customize my set to fit your event. I'm very lenient in terms of payments. I leave it up to the customer on whether they would like to get the payment out of the way beforehand or do it at the event.

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

    My dad and one of his friends got me into it. My dad picked a turntable because he was thinking of getting into DJing like his friend. He ended up never using it so I picked it up and started practicing with it. I started practicing in 2015 and I'm mostly self taught. My dad's friend did help me learn some more things and I mastered my craft over the course of around 3 years. It wasn't until 2019 that I started to consider becoming a freelance DJ and now I work all over the Salt Lake County.
