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 great, very open and accommodating to our needs. We wanted a specific genre of music and what we did not want and John happily abliged. He was even able to get some obscure songs we wanted! Also, he was quick on his feet as we had a last minute change in our line-up. Highly recommend

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.

  • 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.
