I primarily provide DJ services for events, however, I also provide sound systems, do marketing and promotional campaigns, branding, DJ, artist and model management, event planning and catering services. Being in the business for over 30 years, I know the ins and outs of every kind of event imaginable and it is my pleasure to work with anyone and everyone in any capacity and make sure their event is memorable.

I enjoy playing music, making people dance and making sure everyone has a good time. I've been doing this longer than I haven't and I love every minute of it.
He has an excellent music selection. Always on time and professional.
I always like to know what kind of event they want me to play, what kind of music they want played and the ages of guests at the event. I'm not a fan of playing certain songs at parties that have children and/or elders in attendance. Hoewever, if the host/guest of honor wants to hear particular songs, I do have clean versions.
Clients can always contact me before events with song requests and I'll make sure I have that music for the event. I'm very good at doing things on the fly but I love structure and I'm happy to work with the client to put a run of show together in case there are party games they want to have in place. It's always better to have some sort of format together if the client requres the DJ to do something other than play music for the entire duration of the event.
I have over 30 years of experience playing every kind of event in any kind of venue from basements to ballrooms, from back yards to yachts, from bandshells to arenas, from FM radio to internet radio and anything else imaginable.
I shadowed one of New York's greatest upscale DJ's (Tommie Allen) and learned a lot working under him. That and the experience I gained from working numeruous gigs in all sorts of conditions makes me the right choice for any event no matter how big or small.
People often ask me, "how much do you charge to DJ?" It's hard to give simple answer to that question. Some events like parties at schools are one or two hours. Baby showers and birthday parties can be anywhere from four to 7 hours. Some events like weddings require sound systems in two different locations. And there are so many other factors that are just too numerous to mention. Since different events have varying requirements, I can't have a standard price to play an party.
I started playing records at a very young age (5 or 6). There were always parties at my family's house when I was growing up. Since I had a record collection, I would play music for family parties. When I turned 18, I started throwing parties and playing music for those as well. Word got out that I could handle playing music at parties and I started getting booked to DJ birthday parties and soon after, corporate holiday parties.
Most of my customers are either referrals from clients who I played at least one party for or someone at a party I played who liked how I worked and asked for my card.
I get a lot of birthday parties, bar/bat mitzvahs, baby showers and other family occasions. I also get a lot of gigs from party promoters to work in clubs, school parties, talent showcases, music industry events like album release parties and charity fundraising events.
I have a very diverse clientelle from all walks of life. I'm happy to play any event no matter how big or small.
Parties are sort of weird now. A lot of guests seem to spend more time on their phones that interacting with people around them. I remember one party in particular where a small group of people were dancing and singing along with the music I was playing. More and more people joined in. Quite a few of them pulled out their phones and went Live on their social network of choice and danced. It's always exciting to see people having a good time and to know that I played a part in bringing joy to so many people. It just feels good.
