I truly love my job as a wedding DJ.
It isn't just another gig to me. It's someones once in a lifetime (hopefully!).

It's an honor and privilege to be chosen by a couple to entertain their reception.

Many do not understand the time put into preparing a wedding reception. We may only be playing music for 5 hours, but we average around 20+ for each reception. From our in person consultations, preparing a file with all their dances saved, loading equipment, setting up equipment, taking down equipment, and so on. So the price you hear for a professional, is not just for the short time we play.

When choosing a DJ it is very important to find one with plenty of wedding experience. I will not say all younger DJ's are not good. I've met some with incredible music knowledge. Music knowledge is extremely important. You are dealing with several generations at receptions. Not know the classics, oldies, etc... that will really impress the guests, will leave you with a not so great situation.

Too many DJ's think they are the center of attention. Nope... the people paying you are the important ones. You are there to entertain their guests. You are there to make sure everyone enjoys.

A seasoned DJ will be your most important resource to coordinate your wedding, organize fun activities, and there to not only DJ, but to make sure your day is perfect and stress free!

I'll pour champagne if needed. I'll get a stain out of a dress. I'll bandage up a boo boo. I'll give the person not feeling well immodium or whatever is needed. I have a "crash kit" you won't see other DJ's with often. It has many things I've accumulated over the years I have found were needed from time to time. I am there to serve you and your guests!

A great DJ will work directly with hall staff and most importantly the photographer. A great DJ will work side by side with the photographer to guarantee a smooth timeline and that nothing is missed.

A great DJ knows how to make announcements and toss a few tactful funnies out here and there. They know to be on the mic a bit, but not too much! Again... we are not the center of attention.

We will remind you when assigning seating, to place guests that may not like the volume of the music during the party away from where speakers will be placed. A great DJ will not need to be told to turn down the music. They understand proper volumes for dinner and then for the party.

I greatly appreciate the many referrals and confidence in my wedding abilities. I do not take the responsibility lightly. My reputation rides on my actions.

I cannot stress enough to not bargain shop your DJ or photographer. Interview a few different ones. See who you click with and feel the most comfortable and confident with. They really can make or break your memories!

I can go on and on with advice from my 20+ years doing this. Feel free to hit me up for advice or help if you are planning on getting married or know someone who is. Weddings are rapidly changing. I tell people all the time not to be afraid to stray away from the norm. Be you! It's your day! Express your day in your way! Your guests will appreciate a reception that is not the same as every other reception they've been to.

Hope this helps someone in some way.

Happy Wedding Season!!!!

Rocking another wedding!!! Conga and packed floor... Love what I do!!!! Have a 40th birthday tonight as well!!!! Awesome feeling being a part of these special days!!! I like to make them Perfect... did ya catch that??? Lol

Yesterday was one of those very long days I put in for weddings. I started loading equipment at 8am and wasn't home until 1am and in bed around 2am. Hot and humid day as well. Lol
I know there are tons of DJ's out there people can pick from. All in different price ranges and skill/ experience levels.
I see a bride and grooms special day as more than just another gig. I am chosen to bear a great responsibility of professionally entertaining their guests. I take it as a great honor to be the lucky guy chosen to be a part if their special day so I can make it perfect.
A legendary DJ will be relentless in paying attention to details. The smallest of details often set one reception apart from another. No reception should be routine. From the time I meet for our consultation until I pack up and leave, I am paying attention to what I see and hear along the way. Especially if they are facebook friends. I tend to stalk... lol prior to the event for any funny or sentimental things they post I can incorporate into their special day.
One of my greatest accomplishments is when my young at heart guests come to me and compliment on my work. I never get asked to turn it down, I play music to entertain all ages, and my dinner/ cocktail music is very unique. I get many compliments on it. I have put a ton of time and effort into selecting songs that are loving and wedding specific. Ranging from the 40's to current songs. My greatest sense of achievement is when a young at heart says they never hear this music at any of the many weddings they attend. That it took them down memory lane. Last night I had at least 5 guests make a point to compliment and thank me. Staff also said it was amazing. Of course they hear and see a lot of DJ's. I value their input greatly as well.
Choosing your DJ is usually the most important decision. The greats will be booked over a year in advance, have the best and most reliable equipment that is in excellent condition and looks upscale. They will dress professionally, act professional, and pay attention to every little detail. It isn't just another gig for the greats. It's another important life event and honor.
My packages start around $700. I am well below the market average of $1000 in my league of DJ's. I often offer more than my competition at a lower price. My equipment is generally more high end than my competition as well. I'm insured, a legitimate business, my music is legally licensed, etc... If you are beginning to plan your special day, do not procrastinate! Or if you know someone getting married, I'd love the referral.
Don't make the decision lightly and when you hear a price you think is steep for "just a DJ" now you know what goes into making your day perfect and unique.
I love my job!!!!

612North Event Space + Catering

In 20 years of DJing, I have done a few hundred weddings at many venues all over the metro-east. This place is amazing and earns a definite top spot on my list of places I'd recommend to couples.
The space is beautiful, food was amazing, Christina and her staff are so polite and great to work with, and the acoustics in this place make the music sound amazing!!!
