Why I Love Weddings:
I love weddings because of the powerful emotions that make up such a joyous, beautiful occasion! Not only do weddings bring happiness, but everyone leaves with priceless memories. Weddings have a way of opening our hearts and uplifting our spirits! Nothing compares to being in the presence of two people deciding on forever! I'm extremely proud to play a part in uniting two families to share in the love and joy of the newlyweds.
A Little Bit About Myself:
I'm an immensely enthusiastic and skilled DJ who holds great passion for working in the Wedding Entertainment industry. I've had the honor of working alongside some of the most renowned names in the entertainment (including comic/actor Kevin Hart, 92.3FM DJ Yonny, and the cast of "Jersey Shore"), and I've even performed at some of the most exclusive wedding and nightlife venues in NJ.
Each and every mix I play is uniquely crafted on the spot. I never use pre-made set or auto-play! I'm always experimenting and adjusting music selections according to the audience. Reading the crowd is extremely important, and I'm eager to please!
Most Memorable Wedding Moment:
My favorite wedding memories are whenever I see the bride and groom's family and friends uniting and taking in the time celebrating together. Bringing people together on both sides of the family is what weddings are truly all about! It's an awesome feeling to see strangers become new friends (and dance partners!) right before my eyes.
How I Handle Music Requests:
When it comes to a couple's big day, I do my very best to gather a thorough understanding of their likes, dislikes, vision, and musical tastes. As a professional DJ, I'm experienced in mixing songs and different genres back to back. To me, it feels like second nature now! When I do get a (playable) request from a guest, I'm always sure to mix it into the appropriate set and at the perfect time, to ensure the song flows smoothly and keeps with the current vibe of the reception.
How I Get Guests Up And Dancing:
As an MC, I like to be engaged and smooth on the mic to set the tone right from the start. The key to building up energy on the dance floor is being able to read the crowd and to go in different directions when necessary. I feel that the best way to keep guests from various age groups on the floor at the same time is to keep mixing things up and shake up my genres in the same set. We'll go on a musical journey, as I like to call it!
I love spending time with my family! When I'm not working (and I work A LOT), you'll catch us at home or having fun outdoors, like at the park. On rainy days, I like to watch new or old movies, especially on Netflix!
I'm also a big fan of sports and motor sports. I enjoy riding motorcycles, dirt bikes, and motor cross, but there's only so much time in a day!
