When most people call me, they are in need of checking out my services to play music at their wedding. But by the time I am actually hired, my clients are happy and relieved to know that they have someone who can help them through the entire process of planning their wedding day event.
Am I a wedding coordinator?* No. But the planning process I provide helps to diminish the need for additional paid professionals on your wedding day. A a good Wedding DJ is also a Master of Ceremonies. Unlike a nightclub or Party DJ that occasionally “does weddings”, a true MC will be able to speak effectively on a microphone in front of (sometimes) hundreds of your guests. Can you imagine a nightclub DJ who works night after night in a club trying to effectively communicate to your grandmother about the cutting of a wedding cake? Some can, but at the same time, I am not the guy you would want in your nightclub every night either! :^)
As a Master Of Ceremony, I have a written planning guide that I help you think through and put together in the months prior to your wedding. I can help with ideas about lighting, video slide shows, monograms, the order of events, etc. Since I have seen hundreds and hundreds of weddings (in 2013 I will surpass 1,000 weddings that I have been a part of), I can help you with money-saving ideas about your decorations, candy stations, catering, your officiant, photographer, photo booth, and any number of other things.
I am an advocate for my brides & grooms. Sometimes, I can help weed-out vendors that may be treating you wrong or give advice about what to look for in a venue. I help put your mind at ease about contracts, insurance, staff turnover, day-of expectations, and so much more. As a quality wedding DJ & MC, you cannot just put on your headphones and play music because you are wearing too many hats!
*A wedding coordinator is a paid professional that helps put your wedding budget together, contacts and interviews all of your vendors, hotels, etc. (and sometimes pays them on your behalf). They also create detailed day-of time-lines that include travel times, flowers, beauty salon visits, airport pick-ups, etc. Wedding coordinators also help with the flow of the event, which for an average Dallas/Ft. Worth wedding is a service that I already provide as a part of my wedding DJ & MC services.
Summertime in Dallas and Fort Worth is so fun! Apartment complexes, hotels, community event centers, assisted living facilities, HOAs and more are all looking for fun things to do to make this the best summer yet.
The old stand-bys of backyard barbecues and pool parties are all-time favorites, so why not enhance a winning idea with professional entertainment that will make the event super-memorable? Here are some ideas and what to expect:
A DJ for your Pool Party - This is a great idea for parties large or small. The right size sound system for your event from 20 – 200 people is easy for the right professional. Combine that with a wireless microphone and your pool party can have hosted games, raffles, hula-hoop contests and more. Get community businesses to donate prizes or sponsor food and drinks and the cost is minimal. All you need is a dry (and shaded) area with a table and electricity nearby and you are good to go!
Book The Metroplexers party band – This band is made for community events or parties with 200+ guests. Always a great mix of party music that is family-friendly, we also incorporate DJ music with endless variety. Since we are a four-piece band, we can fit in small or large areas including a back yard. Put us on a stage or on the sidewalk – either way your block party, car show, 5K fun run or other special event will be extra special!
Host a Dive-In movie – When it gets dark outside and you are wrapping up an evening barbecue event, nothing is cooler than watching a movie while floating in a pool. Full-sound and a projector with a giant screen make for a very memorable event. Watching favorites like Finding Nemo or Jaws are a good fit for the watery environment. Adequate space is needed for a big screen and no fees can be charged for admission due to copyright laws. Check the weather too because moderate wind can turn a big movie screen into a big sail.
For Saturday events ending before 3:00pm or any other day or evening during the week, prices are very reasonable. Combine any or all of these ideas with your local community and you will have one unforgettable summer event!
We have all seen it: fundraising events run by committees of volunteers who are committed to the cause, but do not understand the dynamics of running a large event. Usually, in an effort to honor a chairperson, one of the committee members is chosen to also be the Master of Ceremonies and speak on the microphone throughout the night. While this can be a successful choice if the speaker is a seasoned crowd-pleaser, the choice of having an amateur speaker can also bring confusion, tedium and ultimately negatively impact the bottom line of a fundraising event.
Most fundraisers have a similar format: dinner during a silent auction of donated items followed by entertainment (usually dancing to a DJ). Occasionally, there is also the addition of a casino night for faux gambling with an effort to win prizes. Door prizes with numbered tickets are also a popular choice. But what else can be done to enhance a night and how can it be cost-justified?
The first thing to know is that a seasoned DJ & MC can act as your A/V person and technical advisor when in the planning stages of the event. As a veteran of literally thousands of events in my entertainment career, I have seen a lot of options on how to “flow” an event. There are also numerous ways that a DJ with Video Screens can help enhance quality sponsorship and properly honor those that need to be recognized during the event. It is best to have these things planned before the donated items even are solicited. A benefactor is a lot more likely to donate a quality item if they know their name/face/logo/brand/company message is going to be on 10 foot video screens in front of hundreds of people. Preparation in this matter is key.
A good MC can also act as a pseudo “auctioneer” to help spark interest in certain items. One common technique is to call out to the audience to “sponsor” a specific event, person, project, etc. The Master Of Ceremonies can continue solicitations until a financial goal is met. This alone will usually pay for the level of service a true professional DJ & MC will bring to an event.
Of course, having an entertaining theme and a person who can play the right types of music to energize your audience is crucial to a successful night. This is even more important if a fundraiser is intended to be an annual event. Woe to the annual fundraiser committee who follows the year after a dud-DJ was hired! It is very difficult to get your audience back into a giving mood once they have been burned by a poor quality entertainer. Remember, the best professionals always bring more value than you will ever pay them.
Have you ever texted somebody a note and they got the wrong idea about what you meant? I love texting, but it can be problematic if the conversations get too deep. I also love shopping online. It allows me to do so much that was not possible just a few years ago. But in the entertainment business, or more precisely, the wedding/entertainment industry, there are some things that just should not be bought sight unseen.
By simply looking at a website, it is very difficult to understand all the intangible things that a quality DJ & Master of Ceremonies can bring to the table at a wedding. Do I offer a wide range of services within the wedding entertainment business? – yes. But what do you (as a bride or groom) think that means? I am a mobile disc jockey by definition, but that puts me in the same catagory as anyone with a portable sound system and a loaded iPod. Yes, I have LED lights, sound, video screens, lighted monogram GoBos, microphones, etc. But how are you supposed to know what “package” to choose from without ever having planned a major event? Do you want the Bronze, Silver or Gold package? The Basic, Elite, or Deluxe package? How can someone know what they need when they have never planned a wedding before? To me, it seems like the wrong way to book business. That is why I do not offer “packages”. Rather, I have a range of services that may suit your needs. But we have to speak about it first for me to understand what you want - your vision.
Almost daily, I will receive an email asking if I am available for certain dates and how much will I charge (with no additional information; sometimes not even a phone number). Without more to go on, I cannot give a proper and informed answer. I know most DJ Companies have a “book-it-now” philosophy, but this short changes a lot of Brides & Grooms and sets false expectations. The only way to know what a bride and groom want is to ask questions and make sure that they understand what each piece of the puzzle means. Otherwise, an uniformed customer may have expectations that are far different than what is really being offered. I even have seen DJ websites from “wedding factory” type companies that require the brides & grooms to come up with their own timeline and order of events!
So often, DJ services are based on the amount of time for a certain night. A 4-hour package is $$ and a 5-hour package is $$$. For me, that does not work either, since I will only be at your event that night whether your event is one hour or six hours. Not to mention that many hours will go into planning everything in advance. I would rather find out what a bride wants at her wedding and give it to her at a fair price than find out her budget and give her the bare minimum based on “what she can afford”. Big DJ companies can’t do that since they mostly use sub-contracted labor. That is why you never really know what you will get when you pick a package.
In my case, I must actually speak to my clients and usually will meet face-to-face to make sure we are a good fit. I can offer options for things that do not have to be decided right away since the wedding may be several months away. This way everybody knows what I can do to help them get what they want on their special day – even if we do not know exactly what that is yet!
I am available to speak with brides and grooms at almost any time day or night by appointment, over the phone or in person. Many of my clients work crazy hours or are full-time students and need someone who can guide them through the ins & outs of planning a wedding. Some of my clients live in other states before coming to DFW for their big day. That is why I am here: because I love helping people figure out what they want and then help them get it… and all I have to do is ask!

Back in “the day” we were lucky to even get a DJ with a decent sound system at our Junior High dances. But these days, kids are more sophisticated and competition is fierce. That is why I offer complete packages that include great sound, LED Lighting, and even big-screen video with (age-appropriate) Shadow Dancers.
Dual Video Screens with LED Lighting
The sound fills up the gym or cafe-gym-a-torium without being too loud and the lights and big screen keep enough light on the kids to make sure the grown-ups can see everybody is behaving.
Shadow Dancers add an element of fun and encourage dancing without being over-the-top. We can even add a themed video to match any theme you may have in mind.
As your disc jockey, I am mindful of the concerns of parents, teachers, and students and am able to balance the restrictions of school district policy with the expectations of the students. Even with all this in mind – it is always a great time!
This is one of my favorite ways to bring a DJ show to Junior Highs and High Schools. Double big screens project cool “dancers” from behind that give the impression of live performers.
There is never any inappropriate content, but it does give a more grown-up feel; kinda like a night club. My music at these events is always the latest stuff that kids want to hear, but it is edited for radio (in other words – clean edits).
Usually school dances at a Junior High will last for 2 hours on a Friday night, so our prices reflect that and give you the most bang for your buck anywhere!
