Q: How did you get started in the DJ business?
A: I started when I was 15 years old working for a DJ company based out of Orono that would DJ at our school dances. My dad had to drop me off for my first couple of training days at the office because I didn’t have my license yet. After performing at some middle and high schools I decided to start my own company during college. I was 19 when I acquired my first wedding and, “bam”, I was addicted and knew I needed to pursue my career as a wedding DJ.
Q: Are you an “involved” or “interactive” DJ with your guests?
A: I am a believer of creating a mood that encourages your guests to have fun and to dance the night away. From my experience this is far more important then the music. All DJ’s have access to the same music, fancy lights, and loud speakers, but to be able to use interaction in a fun, not cheesy way, can be a challenge. Engaging your guests and creating something unique is how you can make a wedding reception like no other. I meet with every one of my clients. I know how they met, their passions, and music taste. Together we build a custom night of interaction and music that will entertain all.
Q: What is your typical time length when you DJ for Weddings?
A: It depends on what the client’s needs are for their wedding. Most of the time that will include cocktail hour music, dinner music, and normally around a 4 to 5 hour dance.
Q: What is your favorite part of being a DJ:
A: I love meeting people and I love my clients. Hearing their story during our planning meeting and helping them create a wedding reception that they are excited about is very rewarding. The best reward is at the end of the night when I execute the event how they envisioned and they are so happy that they chose me as their wedding entertainment. (Also I dig packed dance floors!)
Q: Do you work alone? Or do you have an assistant?
A: I always have an assistant with me at every wedding. In order to execute the high level of entertainment, service, and organization that we deliver having an assistant is a must!
Q: Do you have the same price point all year round? Or does your pricing change for different times of the year?
A: My price does go down during wedding off season (November to April) and I also do discount for Friday and Sunday night weddings year round.
Q: Do you do outdoor receptions as well as indoor?
A: Yes, I do both. I have been in many barns the last couple of years:)
Q: Do you offer do provide ceremony music as well as reception music if they are at 2-different venue locations?
A: Because I have an assistant with me at every event we can easily provide sound at two different locations for our clients if needed.
Q: How far will you travel to provide your services?
A: I have been blessed with a wonderful ten-plus year career as a DJ and have been able to perform over 500 wedding in a dozen states and even Mexico. I am happy to travel anywhere but Wisconsin. Just kidding. I love packer fans:)
Q: What are 3-things you would like all of the couples to know about yo
A: 1. I have a ton of experience, have published 5 wedding magazines, and have a large network of wedding professionals that interconnects me to other vendors to assist with making your overall planning easy.
2. I am not only a DJ. I am the Master Of Ceremonies, coordinate with your venue, and act as a day of reception coordinator to alleviate wedding day stressors.
3. I personally guide you from your initial experience through the last dance of your wedding. I am my company and do don’t contract out any of my services.
