"The DJ Is The Party"
I have always loved music – from Classic Rock, Blues and Country to R&B, Motown, Disco/Dance, Hip-Hop, Pop, to Jazz, Big Band/American Songbook, Classical/Baroque to World Fusion, Indie and Latin vibes music. So, it’s only natural that I would become a DJ. It all started with a small private event 4 years ago, and today, I’m regularly playing for a wide variety of special events in the DMV / Alexandria and Northern Virginia area ranging from private event themed music nights to large local community gatherings to weddings. I work hard to make every event special for my clients with curated playlists crafted in consultation with and aligned to the tastes of the host for the event. I let the music do the talking and keep my use of the microphone to just announcements and the occasional song/artist info type of interaction with the guests. I also use the microphone for fun music/tv/event trivia games relating to the music/genre being played when requested by the venue or client.
When DJing an event, I follow some simple guidelines to ensure everyone has a great time:
• Make the space work for the guests — I work with the host to consult on the venue layout,
placement of DJ table, dance area/floor, tables, lighting, etc.
• Give them what they want but don’t be predictable — I play to the crowd, and not to my personal interests, in music. I keep things moving and keep people guessing by paying close attention to how the guests react and respond to the music played, sensing what they need to get them going.
• Variety is the key! — My playlists are curated for the venue or the theme, not just to my liking. My music collection spans every era in music back to the Big Band sounds of the 1940s through today’s popular music.
• Set the right mood — I strive to take the guests on a seamless musical journey and work with the host to establish critical elements like ambiance, sound levels, and lighting that set the right tone and add to the energy of the event.
