Introduction: I believe that music is vitally important to your event, it is a major factor in making it a success. Whether it be a wedding, private or corporate function or even a 100th birthday party, my goal is to create the right mood and ambiance for your celebration to be memorable! A Beautiful wedding, sociable corporate event and fun birthday parties all have one thing in common: MUSIC, and they should each have their own unique flavor. Your event has a style unique to you and I would enjoy working with you in tailoring a "Moment to Remember". I have over 20 years experience, with over 50,000 songs in inventory! My collection spans 100 years of music for parties of every kind and size (25 to 400). Weddings, corporate events, reunions, and themed parties are my specialty! Karaoke available! Putting a smile on everyone's face and keeping the dance floor packed and moving! Several discounts could apply certain times of the year: location, size, venue, timing, and military.

John was very quick to respond to my request for a DJ. He answered all my questions. He provided a reasonable fee for his services and made looking for a DJ very easy.

He had to cancel due to unfortunate circumstances but he found us a great replacement. He was always quick to respond and very professional when i spoke to him. I would definitely hire him in the future if we have another big party up this way. Thank you

My wife and I planned and hosted our own backyard wedding. My wife from Turkey, and I am American, which made the music selection interesting. He travelled almost two hours to our event but was sure he was very punctual, very friendly, and very good price for the services he provides, equipment he brings, and the amazing atmosphere he creates for the wedding. John was a great help when it came to selecting music both fromTurkey, and the selected playlist we gave him. John and his son also had an excellent knowledge of music to fill in gaps during our cocktail hour/reception. He also was very interactive with the four children we had in attendance and made everyone feel excited and energetic about the wedding. He also suggested games and interactive dances for us that kept the dance floor jumping. Great company! Great guy! Overall if I could recommend him to anybody looking to host any event I highly would.

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

    The pricing is subject to change, and some discounts are available, but currently the pricing is: Parties up to 75 people ($650) 4 hour max Parties from 75 - 250 ($800) - 6 hour max Parties from 250 - 350 ($1,500) - 7 hour max (inc, additional amplifiers and sound system) Each additional hour .. $100. Additional location (ie: indoor and outdoor that requires additional setups or moves ($150) Dry Ice Machine ($100) Karaoke Machine ($100) Rehearsal Dinner (varies depending if overnight stay is required) Discounts - $300 if venue has their own sound system.

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

    1) An initial phone call to collect information about the venue, event, music desired and potential additional equipment (Karaoke, dry ice) and other associated events (rehearsal dinner, post party, etc) 2) I then assemble various playlists for cocktail, dinner, and dance hour and schedule a followup meeting. I prefer this follow-up to be face-to-face but it can be done by phone. When face-to-face we can have fun sampling the playlists and adjust the amount of music style (country, oldies, power 80s, hip/hop, etc). 3) If at a venue, I schedule a walk-thru so I can ensure I will have any necessary equipment to fit within the stage, etc and that they allow such equipment as a dry ice machine.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have been performing wedding and event DJ services for over 20 years. I have hosted events at GE and IBM as well as dozens of weddings, parties and reunions. I hosted a radio show for four years in high school and college and have done commercials for radio.
