Call me any time to discuss specifics about your event. See below for general information and more about me.
What should I know about pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
My pricing is pretty simple. Give me a quick call and we'll discuss.
What education and/or do you have training that relates to your work?
Absolutely! Always researching the latest and greatest technology in the DJ World. This also goes for different techniques in dj'ing and the latest in music selections. If you want to see a little of what I do... Check out my YouTube Channel.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I fell in love with music at a really early age. My parents actually have me on "VHS" dj'ing my grandparents anniversarys with 2 boom boxes and a record table with a flashlight taped to it. That was my light show. Haha! I was always sitting in from of the TV glued to MTV watching and recording videos. When I was 15, I was sneaking into night clubs not to party or drink, but to stand by the dj booth and watch the dj all night! That was my high.
What types of clients have you worked with?
All types! A lot of kids parties. By kids I mean teenagers. They just want to have a great time and hear their favorite tunes while hanging out with their friends. Also a lot of weddings which are fun and capture a great moments in peoples lives. Clubs, corporate events, birthdays... I've done it all.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I recently did a job for Bering Omega Community services. One of the videos in my media shows this. But this is a non profit organization that helps people with HIV and AIDS. I have been their resident dj for a number of years now. We hosted a party here in Houston that had a phenomenal turnout and I was glad to be a part of something so beneficial in our community.
What advice would you give a client looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Always be prepared for any questions I may ask you. If you are planning an event, you should have a general idea of what type of crowd will be there and what type of music you are looking for. Also, have access for your dj to be able to come see the venue. I always ask to see the venue before I do a gig. This gives me a great idea of where I will be set up and how much wires or cable I will need. Also lets me know where the outlets are.
What questions should clients think through before talking to professionals about their project?
I wish and I want my customers to know how much pride I take in my dj'ing career. I'm very obsessed with neatness and appearance of my setup. I also want my customers to know that I go to great measures to get the clean versions of all my music so that no to offend anyone at any event.
Can I request my favorite songs?
Of course! I can be involved as little or as much as you'd like in determining your playlist. A lot of times I will gauge the energy of the crowd and pick songs accordingly.
