We can then schedule conversations at various intervals leading up to your event which will ensure all details have been discussed and all expectations are clear. Once the event date has arrived, we will ensure an early arrival to properly setup equipment, discuss with staff about schedule/order of the event, and discuss with you any last minute details/updates/changes.

Michael has been DJing for almost two decades, is trained on various types of equipment and software, and has been employed by a variety of different professional DJ companies that helped hone the craft. Over time, he developed his own style that compliments who he is and what he represents.

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?
Creating your own playlist (or "do-not-playlist") is a great way for us to get a sense of your personality. On the other hand, asking your future guests for songs they want to hear, will give us a sense of your event's personality.
What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?
• How many people will be in attendance at the event? • What type of venue will the event be located at? • What equipment will the DJ to bring (speakers, microphone, etc) • What types of music would you like played (or not played)? • Would you like the DJ to emcee and/or make any announcements, play games, or any other type of heavy guest interaction?
