I've been a rockin parties as a DJ for 9 years now. I do this for a living (not part-time). You can contact me at 253-961-7753. or email@example.com
When I DJ at the club, it typically depends hiphop, RnB, Top 40, reggaeton, club classics, and oldschool. When I play for H.S. and Middle Schools, I typically play Rap, RnB, HipHop, Rock, Pop, Top 40, and sometimes Country. I am a very versatile DJ and can mix/blend whatever your imagination can think of...depending on the location I have access to download music within five mins. if not available immediately.
I have all equipment any DJ would need, a library of music that expands easily and rapidly, Sound Systems for a crowd anywhere from 50 to 1500 people, lights that could cover any size hall, small detailed items (wireless mic, smoke machine, dress attire, etc.), with a easy going attitude and early/on-time arrivals. I've done it ghetto/low buget to expensive classy to huge big star events (small house garage to yacht parties to 30,000 people summer jams).
I DJ for the people and not my own preference of music. I mix and Scratch all the music cleanly as any DJ on the radio you would hear. I have a great understanding for details and crowd pleasing. I make a party the way you want it to be.

What to Watch Out for When Hiring a Wedding Disc Jockey
Hiring a DJ is safe and easy with these tips from 800DJ!
It’s the hope of every couple getting married that their guests feel welcome, relaxed and entertained throughout their big day, which is why great entertainment is crucial to the success of any wedding reception. One of the best and most financially responsible decisions a wedding coordinator can make is to hire a professional wedding DJ who can do so much more than simply provide musical entertainment during the reception. But how can a coordinator be sure they’ve found the very best? Here are a few things to watch out for when hiring a wedding disc jockey.
The first thing to watch out for is the source from which the DJ was found. For example, be wary of any DJ whom you found on Craigslist or a similar classified advertisement site. Anyone can advertise on these sites without having their skills and work experience verified and accredited. It’s much wiser to seek out talent from a reputable agency with many years of experience promoting wedding DJs because they are held accountable for the skills and reliability of every DJ they promote. With their reputation on the line, they will do everything they can to ensure they are only working with the highest quality and most professional disc jockeys around.
After you’ve consulted a reputable agency and found a few DJs in your area that seem promising, the second thing to watch out for is the DJ’s history. You’re looking for a DJ with the happiest clients and longest history of performing at weddings like yours, so it’s in your best interest to book a face-to-face meeting with a few prospects as soon as possible. During those meetings, you can ask for a list of past clients’ contact information. Be wary of any DJ who hesitates to provide you with a list upon request. Call a few past clients and conduct further research of the DJ’s website, Facebook or other online profile pages. If it’s difficult to find positive reviews or if multiple previous clients provide you with negative feedback – it’s time to look elsewhere.
The third major thing to watch out for are hidden fees for services you did not agree to. When you’ve found a great DJ who can provide all of the services you are looking for, it’s important to get a quote from the DJ that itemizes each and every one of those services, taking into account the total size of your event space. These services can range from adding uplighting, to narrating a photo or video presentation, to providing a photo booth, etc. Once the final contract has been drawn up and is ready to sign by both parties, read through it carefully and be certain everything you need is listed and you are not being charged for anything you did not request.
Watch out for these simple things and you’re sure to hire no one but the very best wedding disc jockey available.
