    DJ Blendmasters came highly recommended while I was looking for a DJ for my husband's Surprise 50th Birthday party and he certainly did not disappoint! He asked me the vibe I was trying to create for my event and was in touch with me to make sure he created it! We literally danced all night to EVERY song he played - we had a blast and were drenched when the night was done! Also, even after his obligation was over, he didn't immediately shut down the party; he stayed until almost everyone had left for the night! Thanks so much for your attention to detail, Steve! This will go down as one of the most memorable nights of my life! I HIGHLY recommend your services and you will be my first choice for DJ from here on!!!

    Thanks to Blendmasters my wedding day was a day I'll never forget. They were professional, entertaining, and most of all played the best music. From the Dj to the MC they kept the crowd live all night long. Didninmention they were affordable? It felt good getting top dollar service at a reasonable price: I would definitely recommend Blendmasters for you next wedding, party, celebration whatever it may be.

    Steve was a total pro in preparation for our event and at our event he was even better. He met with us in person one month before and he guided us through song selection. The night of he knew exactly what to play for each of the different parts of the night. He was also very flexible because inevitably your wedding timeline will change. Finally he allowed me to select some songs. Steve is A1. Book Him

    Blendmasters crushed it at RMS dance!
    Steve Anderson did an AMAZING job at the RMS fall dance. The students are still talking about the energetic playlist days later. Steve was professional, reasonably priced and touched base with me several times leading up to dance. We will no doubt use Steve for our future evetnts.

    Wedding Reception - 10/2016
    Steve and his crew had to endure so many changes with Hurricane Matthew and handled it with ease. They did an amazing job at my daughters wedding reception. Will definately use them in the future for other functions.

    The Best DJ We Could Have Asked For!
    We hired Steve for our wedding reception and we could not have been happier with our choice. Steve was very professional since the very first email. His experience and guidance during our music choice helped us create the perfect list of songs for every moment of the party. Steve and his crew did an excellent job getting our guests to the dance floor without being too pushy and for that I am extremely grateful. I never dance but I did spend the entire night on the dance floor - that shows how great the night was ! I would recommend Steve to anyone looking for an experienced DJ who is able to create the exact playlist and overall atmosphere that the couple is asking for :)

    Unforgettable moments
    I can't even begin to explain how amazing of a job the blendmasters did at our wedding. They made our wedding a night to remember. People I've never seen dance before were on the dance floor. Two months later, my friends are still talking about the great time they had. I definitely will be using them again for any other major events that I have. I highly recommend The Blendmasters.

    Overall good experience
    Our expectations were high since other reviews were so good, but the music messed up a few times during the father daughter dance & a couple other times. The introduction names were wrong including introducing the bride by my prior name. Eehh . We know things happen, but overall this DJ was very pleasant and the music was great.

    I Had my partner DJ Ant804 cover this reception for me because I was already booked. He had a couple of computer issues that are now fixed! He was truly sorry for the tech issue but after that I saw on the video that he really got down and ya'll had a good time! We hope the best for this beautiful couple of Michael and Maryann!

    Steve did an excellent job DJ'ing our wedding. Despite the biggest snowstorm in 20 years dumping over a foot of snow, Steve made the effort to DJ our wedding. He is very reliable and professional. Steve understands music and played excellent tracks during the cocktail and dinner hours without interruption. Then he kept the party going until the very end, incorporating special Brazilian song requests from my wife and friends. Everyone had a great time and I would recommend DJ Hyoctane for others.
  • Kenya J. May 14, 2015
    Steve was the DJ for my husband's doctoral graduation party and was amazing. He knew the right music to get the guests on their feet. He was very professional and accommodating. I will definitely be requesting him again when it is time for another party!!

    Steve was very nice and easy to talk to and coordinate with. He got our group dancing right away and kept people dancing throughout the night. Our executive who wasn't keen on dancing at our event in the first place said, "book him again for next year!" to me before the dancing was even over!

Q&A

What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
My pricing is based on customer needs. Some events are bigger than others. Some customers need an emcee, lighting, longer hours, extra sound, etc.
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Once the customer and I have established contact I will email a contract over for review. Then we can set up a personal meeting face to face or phone call so we can iron out details, get final price, song selection if wedding reception, and get a feel for one another. I will periodically check with customers before event to make sure everything is going well and if we need to update anything and to make sure they are confident and comfortable with us and know the event will be awesome!
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I just registered and completed an online digital dj class from digital dj's.com. I am starting my own deejay school by next year. I've been DJing since I was 15 and have used all different types of equipment.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I have a deep love for all types of music so it was easy for me to start deejaying and producing music. My cousin left the country to go work for the government when I was young and left their record player with me. I already had a turntable so I bought a RadioShack mixer and haven't looked back since. I now am all digital with a laptop and powered speakers.
What types of customers have you worked with?
I've worked with all types of customers with different backgrounds and ethnicities. From White, Black, Puerto Rican, Brazilian, Asian, etc. My nickname is DJ Diversity! I deejayed the IPAC15 gala with over 800 people from all over the world and had everybody dancing!
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I did a party/fundraiser for the adults of our little league basketball association. I kept the floor packed all night!! The next day at our end of the year banquet everyone was raving about how good the party was and how their legs were hurting from all the dancing they did!!! They scheduled another party within a few months!!!
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Look for a quality deejay! Look at profiles, websites, get referrals, and don't let prices scare you. Most quality deejays cost a little more than a $200 deejay. In this business you get what you pay for. If you have budget constraints some deejays will work with you.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Customers should have an idea of what their budget will be. It doesn't have to be exact just an estimate. Also how many hours they want to use the deejay. This has a lot to do with pricing. Ask the deejay what type of events they have done before and what types of music do they play (including do they have clean versions if needed). Ask for referrals too. Also ask if deejay take request.
