What type of events do you DJ?

I have done quite a few different types of parties over the last ten years. From backyard birthday parties to large weddings and corporate parties, the range and scope of each event has varied greatly. I have also done sporting events, holiday parties, bar mitzvahs, St. Patrick Day functions, graduations, and sweet 16's. If you have any questions about whether I'd be able to handle your event, please feel free to contact me and ask.

How much do you cost?

Perhaps the most frustrating thing about hiring a DJ is that no one seems to list their prices so you have to contact each one individually. There are quite a few reasons why I choose to do my pricing the same way. There are simply some holidays and times of year that are in high demand. For that reason, there is simply no fair way to devise a flat rate that would be fair to the customer year round. I also factor in travel time, length of the event, and amount of preparation needed. Please contact me with your event details, and I will get back to you with a swift and fair quote.

What type of equipment do you use?

I am currently running Serato Itch software with a Numark NS7FX controller. Serato is now the industry standard for most DJs. Whether you go out to a nightclub or to a wedding, most current DJs will now have their computer setup in front of them. By digitizing the music industry, Serato has now made is even faster and easier to play your requests, as well as provide DJs a way to bring a huge variety of music in a compact form. I also use a Crown Amplifier to power 4 JBL Sound Factor 15's. Each speaker has a horn style tweeter along with a 15" woofer. I have a light scaffolding that has multiple style spot and can lights, along with strobe lights. All lights are synced to the music and add to the fun and energy on the dancefloor. I have a wireless microphone for speeches and MC work, as well as corded microphones for backup. I also have a fog machine  that can be included as long as the venue will accommodate it.  

How far will you travel? 

I am based out of Long Beach, CA and have traveled as far south as San Diego and as far north as Ojai. Most of my gigs are in either Los Angeles, Orange or Riverside county areas. I have no problem traveling to your event, but for anything outside of those counties please contact me to see if I can accommodate you.

Will you do Master of Ceremony (MC) work for our event?

Yes I will do as much work on the microphone that you need for your event. If you are planning a wedding, it is important to find a DJ who can facilitate the evening for you and keep your wedding on schedule. Without some guidance from the DJ, the wedding can start to fall behind and cut down on the guests' time on the dance floor. If you are planning a wedding, I will work closely with your wedding coordinator to ensure timely and smooth transitions throughout the evening. If you have any questions about MC work, please contact me with your questions or concerns and I would be happy to talk with you about your event.  

Do you take requests?

​​A good DJ should be able to adapt to his audience and read the energy of the dance floor. An effective DJ should also be able to play a wide variety of music, and I welcome requests. 

Will you make my guests do the Funky Chicken?

My philosophy is that the focus of any event should not be the DJ . Any DJ who tries to make himself the life of the party is missing the point of his job in my opinion. A DJ is there to let the guests have fun in a comfortable and enjoyable environment. No one enjoys being embarrassed or forced to do something against their will. When I DJ, I make sure the focus stays on the appropriate people- not on me. If I am DJing your wedding, rest assured your guests will not be forced to do the Funky Chicken or run around in crazy costumes. Your guests are there to enjoy their evening, and it's my job to make sure that happens.
