Why I Love Weddings:
I love doing weddings because it brings two families together. I love seeing the excitement on the couple's face knowing I played a big role in a party that they will remember for the rest of their lives together.
A Little Bit About Myself:
I'm married with 5 children, 2 girls and 3 boys. Two of the 3 boys are twins.
I work full time for Con Edison, a utility company in NYC. I've been there for 25 years and one of my many roles include instructing incumbent employees on customer service skills.
I train them on leaving the customer with what I call a "PMCE" Positive Memorable Customer Experience.
How I Handle Music Requests:
I ALWAYS announce on the microphone that guests can come to the DJ table and make requests if it is my couple's wishes for me to do so.
If not I will happily play any songs the bride and groom wish me to play only! And of course, I always avoid songs that my couples' do not wish for me to play.
How I Get Guests Up And Dancing:
I use what I call a "fail safe" technique, two of them in fact. One of the two I use literally at every event I DJ. The other one I use if I see guests aren't dancing. I call it fail safe because since 1999, the 2 techniques have "NEVER" failed.
I consider DJing a hobby if your doing something you love, it's really not work! I also enjoy hair styling for men and women as well as manicures, massaging, hair coloring etc. I love baseball and spending quality time with my wife and kids.
