- 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.
