Susan was wonderful!! She was very organized, prepared, showed up on time and played only the music I requested. The crowd loved her and I would definitely hire her again!!Sep 16, 2016Verified

Susan was great to work with for my wedding! She gave me some much needed advice for my song selection and everyone at my wedding commented on how much they loved the music. There was a minor technical issue (all on my part) with my personal laptop and she came to the rescue and got the slideshow quickly running again!Jun 10, 2013
Susan was the DJ/MC at my wedding. She did a great job of doing exactly what my wife and I said we wanted. She was also very flexible when plans changed. Huge library of songs and was able to pull up obscure songs on the spot. Only negative was that she was a little to reluctant to allow people to make requests, but that definitely didn't take away from our night. Would definitely recommend to anyone!Apr 27, 2013Best Tacoma DJ & A Day For You Weddings's reply
I always take request for songs as long as the bride and groom agree that is what they want. If a song is on their taboo list or not "clean"I can't play the song that has been requested. If someone hogs the request list I work to play everyone's request + get through the ones the bride and groom have asked to be played. Sorry if someone seemed that I was reluctant to play their request but some weddings I'm pretty busy working to keep everyone happy.
What is there not to say. She was great, on time and very understanding about what we wanted played and not played. She kept the music moving and everyone liked the songs she played (the young in their 20's to the older guest in there 80's) She worked with us to give my daughter the wedding she wanted. Susan is very personal and easy to work with I will be calling on her when my son gets married. She is a gem and worth keeping in my phone book for upcoming events.Apr 26, 2013

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Yes, I don't raise my price depending on what someone is willing to pay. I have a base price based on 5 hours of play time + what each additional hour cost, what lights added in coast & if I drove more than 30 miles one way I charge extra for gas
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Finding out what are their needs and wants and how I can help fulfill them. Pass on my experience and be a person of my word. I do business with people the way I want them to people to do business with me. Honestly
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Like I said in my introduction, I've been a DJ for 14 years. There isn't a vocational-tech or training program you go to to learn how to do this. I started out doing home parties with karaoke/dance and friend started asking me if I'd do their birthday or other parties. Friends of their friends started to asked if I'd do their parties and then came the weddings. Before I knew it I had a great side business. Since I work full time, I can keep my rates low, which means you have more money to spend on other things.
