It takes a great team working behind the scenes to bring magic to every celebration and I work with the best. Along with the thousand of songs from our own libraries, we can access to iTunes and other cloud services to download song requests on demand. Before the event we spend hours on in preparation to find out the demographics of the guests in attendance, choose the menu of songs and prepare special requests. I get a feel for exactly what kind of Dj you are looking for. Some people are looking for a very interactive Dj who provide activities, games and cohesiveness to the event while others prefer one who provides a more formal and laid back atmosphere. Every one and every event is unique.

Michael is not only a great Dj but a great musician as well. Michael and I actually began DJing together back when he was going to JMU. We can both do any part of the job, so if one needs to leave the station the other can step in. We also have different background and tastes in music which allow us to better address a wider age audience. Michael loves to dance and his passion as a DJ is great contemporary dance music, which he knows extremely well. He also adds his strong internet skills which helps us with on the spot requests.
As for me…I have a great passion for classics from the 40’s to the present. I lean more on great quality classic rock/pop dance music. Because of my experience, my strength is in timing and knowing the right moment to play a particular song. You can have a million songs and not know where they belong in the course of events. It helps to understand the language of music very well.
I also coordinate the entire event from beginning to end. That means supervising equipment and lighting set up and making sure everything is set to go to make a perfect event.
