How do you insure that the hosts are enjoying the event?
I check in with my guests of honor once or twice per hour. I make sure everything is going according to their liking, letting them know what is coming up on the timeline for the event, and that they are having a great time along with everyone else. If we need to change anything, we do it at that point so everyone knows the plan and there are no awkward pauses to your event.
How would you describe your personality?
In one word, accomidating. One pet peeve I have with some other DJs I have seen is that they feel like it is their event and there is only one right way to do things, the way they recommend. I always tell people that I like to go into any event with a plan. That way we can easily stray from, or change the plan, instead of just winging it. If you would like guidance, or my opinion on how to proceed, I will let you know at least two options on how we can do it, so you are always in control.The only way of doing things, is YOUR WAY!
Why do you enjoy working at Complete Music?
I love the performance aspect of DJing. Every night is a show, with new people to entertain. It could be a wedding, anniversary, school dance, sweet 16 party, anything, and no two shows are the same. The desire to have everyone remember the entire event being a success drives me in every decision I make.
Why do you enjoy performing at weddings?
Believe it or not, I love the pressure. I like the idea of knowing I have to have the song cued up perfectly for a certain situation, or play a certain song, at a certain time, and introduce it a certain way, to have it make the desired outcome the guests of honor want, and I have only one opportunity to get it right; it is so rewarding when I do. It is especially gratifying when people come up to me and they say I saw you do so-and-sowedding, you were awesome!
What makes you a unique DJ?
I really, honestly, care. For some DJs, DJing is a side-job, just a way to make extra cash. Yours is just another wedding, another party, another paycheck, another Saturday away from the house. I love being a DJ, everything about it. I really enjoy playing that one song you forgot you loved, playing the one top-40 song Grandma will dance to, seeing an overflowing dancefloor when Shout! comes on, and when people clap during my high-energy introductions of the wedding party. I want you to remember that your wedding was AWESOME for many years to come.
