Regardless of who is on the attendee list, what you’re serving for food, or what’s inside your treat bags, a great party must have a great soundtrack to set the mood.

When guests are dancing, socializing, and enjoying the music, you know you’re on your way to a great party!

How would you describe your “DJ Personality”?
My style is very high energy and entertaining! I’m outgoing and ready to get everyone on the dance floor, as well as encourage people to break out of their shells and have fun!
What is your favorite DJ memory?
I’ve seen pretty much everything when it comes to crazy/funny moments. From grandma dancing to booty shaking music, to the 3 year ring bearer breakdancing in the middle of a dance circle, with a few celebrity appearances such as an Elvis impersonator, a Michael Jackson impersonator, the list goes on. Needless to say, I always have fun at my events!
What is your favorite thing about being a DJ?
The one thing that I love more than anything about being a DJ is being able to play a pivotal role in making great memories that will last years after the party is over. I’ve been fortunate enough to train scores of new DJs as well as be awarded as one of the best in the business.
What makes you unique / stand out as a DJ?
I specialize in elevating the party past everyone’s expectations. Whether it’s playing a variety of music (from 70s & 80s classics to the hottest new music) or leading the group dances and cheering on the guests as they let loose; my sole goal for the night is to make sure everyone has the most fun they could possibly have.
What is your favorite part of the night?
Why the dancing of course! I always look forward to the moment when everything shifts to a giant party! You might even see me dancing and singing along!
Why did you become a DJ?
I became a DJ to entertain and play great music. I love what I do, and I love seeing people enjoy themselves.
What’s your favorite party song?
There are too many to simply just pick one. Sometimes it’ll be Michael Jackson’s “Don’t Stop Till You Get Enough”, other days I’ll indulge my High School self with Kesha’s “Die Young” and other night’s I just want to get crazy to Kendrick Lamar’s “HUMBLE.

Complete Weddings + Events knows collaboration is the key to success!
When interviewing potential DJs for your event, be sure to have a set of questions lined up to guide your search. All events DJs in San Antonio will be eager to earn your business, but it’s important to find the right fit. Narrow the field of contenders using these questions as a guide:
A corporate event DJ in San Antonio will have a far different skill set than a wedding and event DJ in San Antonio. While some DJs wear many hats, others prefer to work only in their specific event area. Get an idea of the types of parties the candidate has worked in the past and ask about their strategy for your event. This kind of discussion can help you collaborate and shape the party to your specifications.
If dancing is important for your event, you’ll want a DJ who is energized by the crowd and makes adjustments to their set based on guest reactions. Ask a company which of their disc jockeys are the best at suggesting music that gets the crowd going. If you prefer a DJ that interacts with the crowd more, be sure to ask about how being involved in the event is important to you, and know that a DJ’s ability to get people moving can make or break a party.
The internet has made it easier than ever to play obscure songs, but some DJs still work with records, CDs, or a limited selection of tracks from their library. If you have a particular artist in mind, make sure your San Antonio DJ has the ability to access their music. While you’re at it, compile a list of tracks you definitely don’t want to hear and create a “do not play” list to share with the DJ you hire. Complete Weddings + Events makes this easy with our online event planner.
At some point at your party, a guest is sure to request a song they love. How will your DJ handle such requests? If you would prefer them to stick to a playlist, that is great, but the audience loves to request songs. Understand the process they use to create atmosphere and build excitement, so your wants are achieved and the crowd stays pleased as well.
DJ booths are smaller than they used to be, but most San Antonio DJs still need a dedicated space to set up their speakers, lighting and sound equipment. Ask about their square footage needs, as well as how many electrical outlets they’ll need to access. Their answers can help you shape the event space and keep the DJ out of the way of foot traffic.
Some DJ companies will send just one person to work your parties, and have no back-up DJs in case of an emergency. Others will have a back-up DJ on call. Be sure you understand exactly who is going to show up for your event, what time they’ll be there to set up, and what they plan to do in case of an emergency. If you’ve got a goal in mind for your vendor dress code, make your desires clear upfront.
