What to Expect
You will know up front who your DJ will be, and they will make you their top priority. I (DJ X-Cell) have over 10 years experience with weddings, and that's not combined, and over 20 years as a general DJ. X-Cell Productionz strives to provide tasteful memories for you and your guests, without resorting to "cheesy" routines. If I (DJ X-Cell) will not be able to DJ your wedding personally, a DJ will be assigned to your event and you will know in advance who that DJ will be. The DJ I will assign to your event will be one with the same values and experience as I have.
X-Cell Productionz cares as much about your event as you do. I or the assigned DJ will work with you to fill out a detailed wedding planner. We will later use this information to create a script for the entire event. We will make reception schedules, which we will share with the other wedding professionals (Caterers, Photographers etc.), and will work closely with them to make the event a 100% success. You'll be able to relax and enjoy your big day because all of the important details of the day will be taken care of by X-Cell Productionz.
On the day of your reception, the atmosphere will be created using the style(s) of music you have pre-selected. With X-Cell Productionz you always get an original event, with music that is specifically tailored to your taste. We will always pre-plan the details of your event and the music for your event with you personally, over the phone, and/or over e-mails. We always like to have everything set up before your guests arrive. As the guests begin to arrive, and as they enjoy their cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, and/or meals, it is nice to have some light dinner music playing. At this time, it is customary to announce the grand entrance of the wedding party and for people seated at the head table to make speeches, toast, and/or to offer advice or good wishes to you, the new couple. For this we use a wireless microphone. The wireless microphone enables everyone to be more relaxed and comfortable as they do not have to stand up and go to the front of the room and a wireless microphone reaches places a standard microphone cannot.
We have the experience to create the right atmosphere for your special event. All of our music is on a professional laptop computer that is disigned to play music at a professional level. This allows us to carry literally thousands of songs to every event. We also still carry compact disc, records and they are played on professional CD players and turntables. X-Cell Productionz enjoys the look, feel, and tradition of a real hands-on DJ! We will blend most songs perfectly with no dead space in between them, and we take no breaks unless you want us to. We know wedding receptions may be composed of guests of all ages with a large variety of tastes. That is why I always bring thousands of song selections to every event.
To ensure your guests are going to be up on the dance floor you may want to have some lighting. Adding lighting will generate a good deal of excitement on the dance floor and makes the dance floor more inviting. We will recommend the type of lighting and special effects that will work best for your event. We have different lighting packages and we will always offer them to you with our services at a small charge. Whether you choose our basic light show or our high-energy nightclub show, your guests will be impressed.
So please don't hesitate to contact us today. This is just the beginning of what can be a very special night...and we're just getting started!

Question and answer
Additional Booking Notes
DJ X-Cell’s interest in becoming a DJ came about the very young age of 8. His parents, even though they did not speak English, were subscribers to Columbia House Records in the early 1980’s and would receive random current vinyl (records) hits in the mail. X-Cell would take the records and play them on the family’s wooden stereo consol with a built-in turntable. He listened to hours of hits ranging from Electric Light Orchestra to The Jackson 5 to Frank Sinatra. Later, as he learned of Hip Hop artist like Sugar Hill Gang and Afrika Bambaataa, he began attempting to scratch on the family turntable and eventually ruined the family stereo.
As time continued to pass on, his interest for music never did. He continued to use the family radio in his room and listened to local radio stations around the Colusa area, like KSFM - 102.5 (Sacramento) and KMEL - 106.1 (San Francisco). Even though KMEL was not a local station, DJ X-Cell would manipulate his antenna to somehow receive the signal. His biggest inspiration came from the hours of listening on the weekends to Cameron Paul – “In the Mix!”
Later, as mixing on the radio became more and more popular; DJ X-Cell decided he would save all the money he could, to purchase his first piece of DJ equipment. In 1987 he purchased his first Realistic mixer from his local Radio Shack. Not accounting for taxes on his purchase, the store manger allowed him to take it for the displayed price. X-Cell believes the manager may have just been tired of seeing him go in everyday just to look at the mixer.
DJ X-Cell later went to visit family in Inglewood, Ca. and met his cousins who had a DJ crew named “Boys On Strike”. He was then mesmerized and learned how the art of mixing was really done. When X-Cell returned home, he raised money from mowing yards to playing in friends’ house parties to purchase his first set of turntables. When he did, he also learned of a local DJ named Ramon “The R” Martinez. Ramon later met X-Cell and showed him a few tips on how to start mixing on his new turntables.
As the years continued to pass, X-Cell continued to follow DJs on the radio and attempted to imitate the Bay Area style of mixing. While his journey as a DJ began, he mixed at local schools, house parties, weddings, quinceaneras & surrounding clubs all through his high school years and beyond. He quickly became a favorite in the Northern California area and DJed for many of the Chico fraternities & sororities in 1993-2001.
He attempted to get into the Chico Club scene while he lived there in 1997-1999 but was never accepted because of his Bay Area mixing style and his musical interest were way too different for the local Chico DJs. In 1999, he was contracted by the sorority UKD to spin at a local Chico hot spot, The Brick Works. X-Cell had over 500 college students jammin' to his sounds and the manager ended up asking him to play as a resident. He turned down the offer due to moving back to his local town of Colusa.
X-Cell has DJed in many clubs/bars through the years like; La Salles (Chico), The Brick Works (Chico), 315 Main St. (Chico), 815 L St.(Sac), Club Gravity (Marysville), The Refuge (Yuba City & Colusa), Club S (Woodland), Sporty’s (Colusa), Colusa Casino – Club 45 & Jack’s Lounge (Colusa), The Carriage House (Gridley) and Granzella’s (Williams). X-Cell has DJed all over the Northern California area, to include the Bay Area and up to Redding Ca. He has also gone as far south as Patterson Ca.
DJ X-Cell still enjoys doing guest DJ spots at clubs and continues to get calls from the dying Chico party scene. DJ X-Cell has always been about the music that makes the crowd shake and groove, no matter how young or old or what preference in music people may have. He never gives up trying to get the diverse crowd dancing at the same time on the same dance floor.
X-Cell is currently playing every third Friday of the month inside the Colusa Casino’s Jack’s Lounge. You can contact him to book him for your next event or to just find out where he will be next. DJ X-Cell enjoys talking and meeting with all sorts of new people so don't be afraid to drop him an e-mail! You can find some of his mixes at (link hidden) or on the page titled MIXXES!! on this site.
