“It’s obvious that you have a passion for your work and love what you do!”
This is the comment I hear the most from clients and guests at the events I perform at. The best part about hearing it is, it’s absolutely true!
I do love what I do for a living. I’ve always loved people and music, and have a fun sense of humor, so this was a perfect fit for me. I basically party for a living and in the process help other people have fun at events. What could be better?
I have thoroughly enjoyed all the different types of events I’ve done, which include Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, weddings, corporate events and private events, over the 19+ years I’ve been in business. The last 16 of those years I’ve been a full-time DJ, averaging 105 events per year.
Reading the crowd
Because of my varied experiences as a DJ, I’ve become very good at gauging a crowd to know what music to play to keep the crowd going, as well as building additional momentum on the dance floor.
Having a large musical library that runs from the ’30s to the present certainly helps in that respect.
I bring the following types of music with me to every event:
My experience also enables me to read a crowd to know what if any interaction is needed to get them going. I’m one of the most outgoing, interactive DJ’s in the business, and if any DJ can jumpstart a party, it’s me. Of course I tailor my level of interaction to what the client wants as well as to what the crowd needs in the moment. In some cases, very little interaction is wanted or needed, so I very happily tone things down. Yet in many other instances I find myself with a crowd that doesn’t know how to get started without my help. In those situations I may get out on the dance floor to lead group and/or line dances, get groups of of people singing together on the mic to certain songs, or use my personality to help draw people out. In any case, this is all done in such a way as to not be obtrusive. It works!
I have two wireless mics to help me interact. One is handheld and is also available for use by my clients and their guests. The other is a headset, which enables me to lead group and line dances with my hands free.
A Stress-Free Experience
Because it can be stressful to plan an event, I want the event to be stress-free for my clients. I accomplish this by doing the following:
What I’m Proudest Of
After 19+ years in the business, it’s gotten to the point where the vast majority of my business comes from the following sources:
