How do you decide what music to play at our event?
I provide a complete song list of most requested and popular music and an unlimited music library online through iTunes. Clients can take as active a role as they desire and can have as total control over every song that gets played or I leave it in my very experienced hands, with a little guidance as to preferences from their side. Requests from guests are always welcome and will play a part in our music selection.
Can we bring CD’s from home for you to play?
Sure, CD’s or MP3’s are welcome but almost never necessary. I have access to every song imaginable through the iTunes library.
Can you play a song from mine or a guests iPhone or mobile device?
Sure, Mobile devices and iPhones are welcome, as long as they have a standard headphone output, I can play music from them.
How much control do I have over the music?
Complete control, with professional assistance from my side.
What if I have a request on the night, for a song that I forgot to request before?
I will probably have it in my Music Library already, if not, in most venues I can download any songs immediately.
Do you act as the Master of Ceremony?
Yes, I’m very comfortable in the role of an MC . I have nearly 20 years experience working with audiences from around the world.
Will you bring a microphone?
Yes, and an additional wireless mic for speeches within the venue.
What kind of space do you need?
Normally a table is provided by the venue in an area next to the dance floor for DJ set up. Generally,no additional space is required. A video screen or Karaoke set up would require extra space.
Do you have lights?
Yes. Specialty lighting that turns a hum-drum reception hall into the latest nightclub. One effects light is included in the price.
What about Karaoke?
That option is available for an additional fee. Normally, it's not brought to every event, so it needs to be asked for and reserved in advance.
Does the Best Man or Maid of Honor have to come over to your table to make their toasts?
No, not at all. We provide a wireless microphone for all speeches. Whomever is making the speech is free to stand wherever they are comfortable.Normally they will stand close to the Bride and Groom so the photographer can get everyone in shot.

How long in advance should I book your services?.
As soon as you decide on a DJ you should reserve your date. Key West is a hot-spot for weddings and good DJ’s are in high demand. The sooner you book and reserve your date the better your chances are of getting the right DJ for your party.
Why should we hire you?
Experience, passion, commitment, style and equipment. In a world where downloaded music and cheaply produced audio gear has become common, so had the misconception that anyone with a lot of music and a sound system can provide adequate services. Music and audio gear, though important, are merely tools, and the tools alone do not level the playing filed. In any profession, knowledge is king and a great deal of the knowledge possessed by top-notch professionals is derived from real world experience and performances. Knowing what to do, how to do it, and just as importantly what not to do is what truly sets one DJ apart from the next. Style, voice, manner, those things. My passion and commitment are part of who I am, and if I didn't have the experience to back it up, I could not fully utilize these traits. My clients get my full attention all night, and the peace of mind that comes from knowing they are in the competent hands of an easy going but extremely professional DJ who truly loves what he does. And as so many happy couples will tell you, “It shows”.
