What to Expect

Regardless of the crowd, I always play the right song for the right moment.
I'm Roman Candles, host of The Morning Jive every Thursday 6-9am on 90.3 KTUH FM Honolulu.
As a weekly radio & club DJ with over 5 years experience in Honolulu, I have promo access to the latest Top 40 and underground music releases. My library is also filled with over 50,000 classic rock, funk, disco, jazz, electronic, hip hop, R&B, Hawaiian, reggae, soul, and pop songs from 1940 to 2014.
Each wedding, prom, graduation, holiday party, corporate or private event I produce is based on the musical preferences of you and your guests, with everything mixed together seamlessly.
I'm a licensed business in Hawai'i & insured to $2M.
I'm also a great MC and have sweet lasers, lights, fog, bubbles, cordless mics, and a projector/screen.

Additional Booking Notes
I use the latest industry standard equipment, including:
-2014 Macbook Pro Retina with 1TB SSD, 16GB of RAM, 2.6 GHz Quad Core i7
-QSC powered speakers and subwoofer
-RANE Sixty Two mixer
-Two Pioneer 1000 Mk3 CDJs

I have a huge library to be able to take live requests, but it helps to have your musical preferences in advance to better prepare. My library consists of over 50,000 songs in every genre from 1940 to 2014. I download all my music legally or digitize it from vinyl or CDs. The MP3s are encoded at 320 kbps, the highest quality setting.
Some cheap DJs pirate music illegally off the internet, resulting in low quality MP3 files (192 kbps or worse) that sound poor in comparison, and your guests will be able to hear the difference!
