Why I Love Weddings:
Weddings are an all-out party! Everyone is looking to have a good time and that is what makes it so exciting! There is so much to look forward to on one's wedding day. There is love and happiness in the air as new families are joined together, and the expression of that love is infectious. It is an amazing feeling to be able to experience these unforgettable moments with the newlyweds. I love that I get to make it a great night for everyone by keeping everyone on their feet all night long! You don’t even have to be a good dancer, and you are still welcome to get out on the floor and enjoy! Music can liven up anyone’s spirit and weddings are full of fun music.
A Little Bit About Myself:
I love music and have always had an ear for it! Music emotionally moves me and I find it very powerful! More importantly, I love being a DJ! One of the things I pride myself with is my knowledge and commitment to great sound. You can always find me with my headphones on! I love sharing my music with my three kids! Even when I am at the beach, I love bringing a radio with me to listen to music while I relax and escape! I have been DJing for a little over fourteen years now and I find it to be one of the most rewarding jobs.
How I Handle Music Requests:
My top priority is the newlyweds and their vision for the night! While I am DJing, I like to read the crowd to know what song to play next. If somebody requests a song and the couple approves, I patiently wait for that perfect moment to incorporate it! I love it when the energy of the music physically pulses into the crowd. Every occasion is different so it all depends on the couple and their guests!
How I Get Guests Up And Dancing:
Music is the key to getting people up and dancing! I can feel the energy and potential to get people on the dance floor, as well as visualize how people will move to the music. I love mixing it up with the crowd, so I make sure to come out from behind the DJ booth to ensure everyone is having a good time! If the guests are feeling the music and energy they will join in!
Along with being a DJ, I very much enjoy writing! I am actually in the process of writing my first novel, which is extremely exciting! I also enjoy poetry, reading, and humor! I believe these interests help me be an even better DJ because just like writing and reading, music is a form of art!
