Why I Love Weddings:
I love weddings because it brings two families together. I love seeing the excitement on the couple's face knowing I played a special 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. 1`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 requested by the bride and groom only! Of course, I make sure to avoid songs that any of my couples do not wish for me to play.
How I Get Guests Up And Dancing:
Since 1999, I have used what I call "fail safe" techniques because they have never failed! One I use for every event that I am a DJ for. The other one I use if I see guests that aren't dancing.
I consider being a DJ a hobby and true passion of mine. Since I am doing something that I love, it never feels like work! More passions of mine are hair styling for men and women as well as manicures, massaging, hair coloring, etc. Lastly, I love baseball and spending quality time with my wife and kids.
