I began my DJ career when I was about 18 years old. I trained with the local company, "For DJ's only". Since that time (over 20 yrs.), I have done all types of parties, weddings, banquets campgrounds,etc. I start out by asking questions about what the client expects of me. If I am asked to play a prepared songlist, I am happy to honor that and will ensure to have all selections. If not, I would try to get a feel of what type of music is preferred. My phone and email are always available for any changes, questions or even just a confidence check.

Can you explain how you conduct the evening? This depends If you want more of a background effect or if you want a lot of dancing. We can watch what music seems to work best based on our experience over the years.
When I DJ a party, I want everyone to have a good time. There are events when everyone wants to dance as long as I play the most popular songs. Those are the easier jobs. There are times when a more subdued crowd may need a little motivation and I do my best to get things going. Other times you may need to turn it down a bit when you realize folks just want to catch up with friends and family. My job would only there for a background effect. Whatever the situation calls for, I want to do what is best for a successful event.
