It's funny how time flies. I don't usually give it much thought, but I have made my living as a full-time DJ since 1985, and a lot has changed over my career. The one thing that hasn't changed over time, however, is working with people and making a connection. Meeting and exceeding clients’ needs is what leads to events being talked about for years to come. It's really satisfying to me when a former client comes up to me and says, "People still talk about what a great time they had at our wedding!"
I am flattered that over the years I receive numerous personal referrals for my DJ services. On more than one occasion I have been referred to as "the family DJ". I am so lucky to have a career in a field that I have been passionate about since I was a little kid. Whether it is a friendly game of "Name That Tune" over the phone or mixing up a CD for somebody, my passion for music runs incredibly deep.
One of the things that is a little concerning to me these days is that because technology has made it easy for anyone to possess a massive library of music, and it is relatively inexpensive to get the gear to play music at an event, there are a great number of people out there calling themselves "DJs" that really aren't. That is tough for me. I have worked my whole adult life on refining my craft and I take great pride in that. I like to use this analogy: you can take anybody with a drivers license and put them in Jeff Gordon's race car, but that doesn't make them a race car driver. The same goes for being a DJ.
Simply put, I love what I do, and I do it very well. I've spent my life perfecting it, and I'd love to be a part of your day!
