Yes, we know… DJs and musicians are a dime a dozen these days, if not cheaper. NYC is overrun with DJs and musicians willing to jump in and get on stage for nothing just to validate their own aspirations. Enough is enough! The crowd can tell the difference! And you’re doing your craft a disservice by lowering the bar so anyone can use your business as playtime.
Hire a professional for your venue, party, restaurant, weekly, etc., and reserve your right to expect a PROFESSIONAL service!
With over 15 years in the business, I have learned how to make a crowd interested in returning, getting people to dance and enjoy, and also playing the appropriate music for the setting. Whether it’s a brunch lounge vibe, a sing-along bar vibe, or a sweaty dance party, hire someone who cares about the difference AND the return clientele, because this is a BUSINESS, not a hobby showcase.
I own all my own equipment, capable of booming sound or light background. I transport by car, and do not need to sacrifice equipment for ease of transport. Understanding my own equipment allows me to cater very specifically to the venue’s requirements for a successful event- big, small, loud, soft, relaxed, or turnt!
And most importantly, I have managed and operated my own businesses in NY for nearly 20 years. The bottom line- if it don’t make dollars, it don’t make sense! Let an artist with business knowledge treat your business as the customer, guaranteeing my full effort to bring more business to your establishment, with the intent to continue to drive revenue.
