Right now, let’s talk about your big day. It may be a birthday party, an anniversary celebration, a class reunion, or it may be your wedding day.
Your DJ should also be like a parent. He should be there to listen to your ideas, and nurture your dreams. But he should be honest with you, and let you know when you may be making a mistake…and experienced enough to offer a solution. He should find the best way to make your day everything you wanted it to be.
Ok... let’s cut to the chase. You wanna know how much is this gonna cost. Fair question. But the answer is not as easy. Remember that PRICE should not be the ONLY factor when choosing a DJ. There are some real bargains out there, but what good is a low price DJ who doesn’t have the experience? In the same respect, a high priced DJ doesn’t mean he’s a better DJ. Before you consider price, you must decide if he is the RIGHT DJ FOR YOU. You need to have a personal “connection” with the DJ you hire for your wedding day. If he is the right DJ, you will know it. Only then can you determine if the price is right.
So, about the radio thing. I didn’t plan on it. I didn’t always dream of being in radio. I hadn’t even considered it. But, by sheer luck, and an incredibly lucky bit of timing…I ended up as the mascot for WZZO-FM in Allentown, PA. Yeah, running around in a 6-foot chicken costume is called “humble beginnings.” Fast forward a few years, and I am now the Production Manager for WZZO, along with our new sister stations: B-104, WAEB-AM 790, and Fox Sports AM 1470.
Since my debut appearance in November 1981, I have had the chance to see things and DO things I never dreamed of. I went to more concerts than I can remember, I met many of my musical heroes, and I’ve had the chance to meet and perform for thousands of people.
Along with the radio career, and the mobile DJ business, I also work for City Entertainment Systems, a production company that provides sound, lighting, entertainment and decorations. We work for the Celtic Classic, the Allentown Fair, Palmer Community Days, Forks Community Days, Das Awkscht Fescht, Wheels of Time, the Hill School, the New York City Veterans Day Parade, the Wounded Warriors Project, and numerous concerts, festivals and events all over Pennsylvania, New York and New Jersey.
My life has always gravitated to music. Not bad for a guy who can’t sing, can’t dance, and can’t play a musical instrument to save his life.
Ask questions, discuss your ideas, and talk about your plans. Make sure your DJ is flexible enough to accommodate your wishes, but isn't afraid to tell you the truth. He should use his experience to find the best way to make your day everything you wanted it to be. If you base your decision solely on a lower price, you may not be happy with the results. And if it is your wedding day, it will be too late to set things right. So before you sign anything, let’s “chat” about your ideas.
Thank you so much for you awesome service!Thank you!
