In-store promotionals add value and FUN!

August 22nd, 2011 by Mike

Part of being a well-rounded DJ & MC (announcer too!) is helping to promote brand awareness, venues or products on location. I have been involved with too many to count with brands like Pepsi, Budweiser, Ritz Crackers, KCSC, Crate & Barrel and more.

This past weekend, we had a fun event at Macy’s NorthPark Center that featured Justin Bieber’s fragrance “Someday“. The event happened to coincide with Tax-free Weekend in Texas, so lots of kids and parents were out in the mall.

Justin Bieber’s representatives were there and captured some of the action:

Streetlight People (Journey Tribute Band)

July 27th, 2011 by Mike

Most people know me as a professional DJ & MC. But with my specialty being wedding ceremonies and receptions, I am sometimes open on Friday nights. So what is a full-time musician/disc jockey to do to keep busy? Well… start a fantastic-all-Journey-music “tribute” band, of course!

I have been playing keyboards and singing even longer than I have been a disc jockey, so when my friends brought a rare musical opportunity to my attention, I could not say no.

This kind of band does not play very often, so have no fear about scheduling conflicts with upcoming events. With my solo work as a DJ & MC, Voice Over Professional, and Musician, I have had to keep a tight & varied schedule for years.

Please visit the band’s website or “like” us on Facebook at www.streetlightpeople.com.

Night or day – I love all kinds of weddings.

April 23rd, 2011 by Mike

Wedding receptions each have their own energy.  Some call it the vibe or atmosphere.  Whatever it is, it is the way the event makes you and your guests feel while you are there and how you remember the day after it has happened.  Most of the time it is not possible to know what the vibe will be at an event before you get there, but last month at the wedding of Lindsay & Jon, I knew we were in for a great time.

A wedding reception that happens in the late afternoon or evening should be handled differently than one that happens at night.  People are less inclined to dance and “party” during the day than they do at night.  If alcohol is served, there is usually less consumed during the daytime events than at night (not always!).  And people often have something else to do or somewhere else to go after a daytime wedding reception.  So all of these things should be in the mind of a wedding disc jockey when planning the flow of a daytime wedding event.  Often times, daytime events are scheduled that way in order to get special pricing discounts for price-sensitive couples.  In the case of Lindsay & Jon’s wedding, we did some fun stuff, talked a lot in advance and planned accordingly.

Lindsay had a fantastic display that incorporated a vintage wedding dress from her family.  Also, in lieu of a standard guest book, she had an awesome Wish Tree that guests could write a special message on and hang ornament-style in the tree.

Color-wash lights were used in the room to enhance the decor even though the room was the brightly & naturally lit fellowship hall at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Richardson.

When planning her event, Lindsay and I talked a lot about music selection.  Wants and don’t-wants.  Specific songs and artists that they would like to hear and, ofcourse, special dances.  I even created a special music edit in my studio to make their grand entrance truly one-of-a-kind.

But even the best songs ever written will not always succeed in getting guests up to dance during the middle of the afternoon – so what’s a DJ to do?  The fear of having an obnoxious, over-bearing DJ is often expressed to me by my brides, so I am always careful when putting together events that encourage and engage the guests at a wedding reception.  I never want to embarrass a guest or have fun at someone else’s expense.  So we have special music tools that can be used to gently encourage dancing and celebrating such as an anniversary dance or couples dances.  We even can help the guests get to know their newlywed couple better by playing a wedding Question & Answer game.

All of these options are discussed in advance and used only when appropriate.  Then as guests feel more comfortable in the party atmosphere of the afternoon, the formalities melt away and the smiles come out.  People loosen-up and start to wiggle in their seats.  Then when the right song is played, people can’t help but get up out of their seats and dance – even when all the lights are on at five o’clock in the afternoon!

Soon enough it was time for a bouquet & garter toss followed soon after by the last songs of the afternoon and another special, wonderful first night together for a happy couple…

Make it your Goal to come tonight…

April 14th, 2011 by Mike

Tonight I will be filling-in for voice legend and teacher Bettye Zoller with University Park Voice Overs and Voices Voices LLC.  Our topic on Goal Setting is one of my favorites.

Most people do not understand how to properly set goals, define them, and reach them.  Our class tonight will address these topics and help move you along.  If you are a voice over professional (or hope to be) or just want to learn more to get your passions moving ahead, this class is for you!

This MeetUp group charges admission ($20.00) at the door and you must sign-up through www.voicesvoices.com.  The group meets at La Madeline on Mockingbird and 75 near SMU.  Come early to eat; class starts at 6:30pm and lasts 2 hours.

Voice Over Studio is GO!

February 4th, 2010 by Mike

With the type of work I do, having a top-quality recording studio in my home is a must! We are fortunate to have a great “music lounge” in which we can create, work, relax and play.

The studio is particularly suited for voice over work, but I also use it for many other things. Wedding ceremonies (and sometimes receptions) often require special music edits to make things go just right for my special brides.  Also, editing videos and post-production are some of the things that having a studio at-the-ready can help with.

Because of the comfort and design of the entire room (not pictured here), I am able to consult with clients, singers, voice professionals, etc. and help serve the people that need it in an efficient manner.  My band, The Metroplexers also make use of the studio for rehearsal purposes, practice and cutting demos.

Of course keeping up with this website is a lot easier with the right tools too!

Am I dreaming?

January 1st, 2010 by Mike

Being a professional entertainer is a dream come true for the right kind of person.  I feel blessed to be a part of so many wonderful projects, special events, and once-in-a-lifetime moments.

As a professional DJ and Master of Ceremonies, I take pride in providing my clients with the best quality that I can as well as insight to the ins-and-outs of planning a special event.

My voice over clients can expect much the same in terms of quality and timeliness as my home studio is always up-to-date and sounds terrific.

And my band, The Metroplexers, is striving to be DFWs go-to party band for events and venues that want quality live music.  We play classic hit songs from the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s, but won’t kill your budget since we are a modestly sized, four-piece band.

I have started this blog/website to share these moments with you and give you a feel for what it means to me to serve you as a professional DJ, MC, Voice Over talent, keyboard player, singer, etc. If I could share the one thing that sets me apart is that I honestly care about my clients and the special moments that they allow me to share with them and their family & friends.

I am humbled and happy to be sharing the good times and interesting projects that come along and look forward to serving you too!

-Mike
