I am a 23-year veteran of the local DJ and special event industry. In 1996, I began DJing for one of the areas largest mobile DJ companies. After a few years, I became a partner, and nurtured outstanding growth for the company. At our peak, we employed over 25 DJs with the ability to perform at dozens of events per week! We were on the preferred vendor list of virtually every country club, hotel and banquet facility from Raleigh to Chapel Hill. I was a board member of NACE (National Association of Catering Executives) and a charter member of the Triangle Bridal Association and the Triangle DJ Association.
After many years of attending bridal shows, managing dozens of playlists simultaneously and spending thousands on media advertising, I felt it was time to scale back the operation. In 2003, I parted ways with the 'mega DJ' business model, and formed a smaller, DJ and special event production company. This time around, I promised it would be manageable and efficient. There is too much that can slip through the cracks when you are over-leveraged.
From a business perspective, growth is great. The more DJs a company employs, the more events one can do, and the more profits grow. But, from a bridal perspective, it is not as grande. A bride (or anyone organizing a special event) deserves one-on-one attention. They also deserve the best service and the best DJ. Trust me, it is impossible to maintain only the highest level of service when someone other than yourself is 'out there' performing.
After working both sides of the fence, I know that I can serve my customers with 100% attention to detail and with 100% confidence of performance quality. I can not, nor can anyone else, promise the same when anyone other than himself or herself is assigned to DJ your event. With 25 DJs, I could not guarantee a perfect event. Now I can!
Over the years, I have DJ'd over a thousand events from Wedding Receptions, Mitzvahs and Corporate Events, to College, Pool and Theme Parties. I have performed professional voice overs, MC services, soundtrack work, and I have minor film and TV appearances to my credit. A musician since the age of 6, I write, record and compose orginal music in whatever spare time is available.
I live in Apex, NC with my wife and two young boys.
