What to Expect
If you hire me as your event entertainment, you are getting a qualified, experienced performer. I have other skills such as planning and coordination, project management, and emcee - all of which I include as a full-service entertainment offering.
When making announcements, I use a clear, professional performance voice. This goes for general announcements, to grand entrance announcements, and other oration sequences.
When playing music, I attempt to create moments on the dance floor. This is accomplished through the use of music at the right moment. A slow dance to engage couples, high energy songs to inspire and take the party to the next level, or perhaps a change in genre to encourage wallflowers to take a step onto the dance floor. I am not a monkey with a microphone, I let the music speak. I trust in my transitions and ability to create the best party.
For planning your event, I employ an online planning site powered by technology created by (link hidden). Planning becomes a breeze with intuitive, fill-in-the-blank forms. It includes an online song database with search, and event element scheduling.
I've always had a love of music since I was a youth growing up with AM radio. I listened to a lot of pop, country, rock, and the early pioneers of urban music also known as breaking. I had a moderate interest in playing music publicly but mostly spent hours listening to hits on the radio and following Casey Casum's weekly top 40. A few decades passed and my interests were in other things such as computers and high tech.
In the mid 90s, I tried karaoke for the first time and found that I liked singing in public. A lot! By 2002, I looked for and found a job working as a karaoke host, and playing bumper music in between singers. I started to experiment with playing bumper music and matching beats together and practicing mixing songs smoothly using a laptop and audio files on an external drive.
I was first hired as a DJ for a wedding in 2006 for someone that was a regular at the bar I worked at. I had never considered doing it as a profession but a light clicked on in my head, and I knew it was a path I should take. I started to get more serious about my approach to playing music publicly, and also the equipment I used.
Today, I use online planning software to assist in the planning stages for events. I also subscribe to several record pools so that I can stay current with music. I use a computer with professional DJ software, and use a DJ controller to interface with the music. I'm improving my techniques and methods of playing music constantly and have plans this year to upgrade my equipment, such as higher quality speakers, a laptop with higher capacity processing and RAM, and a higher level DJ controller such as the Pioneer DDJ-SX2.
I look forward to helping you create the best party - contact me today!
Additional Booking Notes
My equipment requires a minimum of one steady-current 120V 15A power source. My power consumption is lessened, due to the fact that I use powered speakers that use a Class D power amp built in. By using powered speakers, I don't require a heavy current drawing amplifier. I also have battery powered effect lighting to have less of a grid footprint.
My song collection is extensive and current. There are some genres that I am not versed on, such as Cumbia and other Latin music. I admit it isn't my specialty however I am a thorough researcher. If you have what might be considered an eclectic taste, I can accommodate by knowing more about you and your music tastes.

Influences & Inspiration
I'm a huge fan of several music styles. I grew up listening to country, hip-hop, break music, classic rock, and new wave. I am a fan of mashups and remixes. It inspires me to try my own mashups and blends.
To perform, I require that minimally there is a 6' table with covering, and an outlet with a regulated power source.
