Why I Love Weddings:
I love weddings because of the powerful emotions! Weddings are joyous, beautiful occasions! Not only do weddings bring happiness during the celebration, but everyone leaves with priceless memories. Weddings have a way of opening our hearts and uplifting our spirits! A wedding is seen as love's symbol of success! Whether it's a snowy winter day or a crisp fall afternoon, weddings are absolutely exquisite! Nothing compares to being in the presence of two people deciding on forever! I'm 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 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 when I see the family and friends of both sides of the couple all celebrating and sharing together. Bringing people together is what weddings are 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:
I do my very best to gather a thorough understanding of each couple's likes, dislikes, vision, and musical tastes when it comes to their big day. As a professional DJ, I'm experienced in mixing songs and different genres back to back; 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, ensuring the song flows smoothly and keeps with the current vibe of the reception.
How I Get Guests Up And Dancing:
As an MC, I'm engaging, smooth on the mic, and set the event's 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 the best way to keep guests from various age groups on the floor at the same time is to keep mixing things up. I like to 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 catch new or old movies, especially on Netflix!
I'm also a big fan of sports and motorsports. I enjoy riding motorcycles, dirt bikes, and motorcross, but there's only so much time in a day!
