"How would you describe your style/approach to events?"
I always like to reflect upon my own personal experiences as an event guest and consider all of the things that I loved/hated when it came to the entertainment. Providing everyone in attendance with the most amount of freedom to enjoy themselves without having some showboating sequin-suited tool stealing YOUR shine and doing a touchdown dance in the faces of your friends and family is ALWAYS the mission. Concentrating on mixing great music for great people while using the mic just enough to keep everyone in the loop without coming off corny or cheesy is how I do my thing. I love what I do and I like to think of my performances as personalized mix tapes being produced for my clients in real time.
"How does the music selection process work?"
After I am officially under contract, you (my client, regardless of the event type) will receive an AMAZING mobile planning app that can be accessible anywhere that will allow you to share your "must play" and "do NOT play" songs. There will also be plenty of room on this form for you to note special requests, announcements, and additional notes that are pertinent to the event. You can even include your guests in the fun! Sharing Spotify playlists, survey spreadsheets, and other ways are also great methods! The bottom line is, this should NOT be a chore for you and is not a task that should cause you grief or stress. If it isn't fun for you, it isn't fun for me! I often recommend that you just give me 5-10 songs/adjectives and let me navigate from there. I've been collecting and playing music for a very long time and can confidently read a crowd and transition accordingly. It's what I do! You can truly be as involved as you'd like to be, and I welcome you to be part of the process!
"Do you offer additional lighting options?"
Absolutely! Dance floor lighting with motion effects always take the excitement of party time to the next level. It also encourages your guests to 'get it on the floor'! I also offer uplighting and ceiling wash effects to add color and elegant ambiance to grand spaces. These items are built into complete packages or available in a la carte style. GoBo projected monograms are also available to put your name up in lights for all to see!
"OK. I'm in. But what's it gonna cost me?"
Every single event of which I am a part is unique and, as a result, I use a creative quote-based system to ensure project needs are always met with as much budget knowledge as possible. With so many variables related to location, duration, and equipment combinations it is impossible to have one flat rate for every single occasion. Most of my clients invest somewhere between $3.5-$5.5K and receive a LOT more than you might expect from a DJ!
