DJ Crash at the Stone Rose - Sofitel jan 2010

Spinning at Stone Rose on January 17th 2010.

Wonderful little mixer. Cant really say little. There were about 300 people hanging out, mixing and mingling even in the rain.

Los Angeles Party DJ

I must say - 2009 was a great year for me. I reduced my fees slightly, worked more events than ever, donated my time to charity events, and met fantastic new people. It was also stressful as well. Broke up with my g/f, and had some struggles with client pre-conceived ideas of a professional DJ. I think 2010 will be even better.

Seems that the economy is turning around slightly, slowly and cautiously. That's okay. We all deserve something better.

About one week ago I DJ'd at the Playboy Mansion for New Years Eve. It was a terrific party. Not as many guests as previous years - it was intimate - but nice.

I head off to Palm Springs next week, and have several wonderful events booked into the near future, including several weddings.

What I really want is to donate more of my time to charity events. But, it seems like charities have been hit hard by the economic downturn. Please call - I want to help.

Keep moving forward. Keep your head up. Think positive.


Hire a professional DJ - Hire Crash

Who is a professional DJ?

Its a full-time job. They don't have any other work other than being fully immersed in music and the professional entertainment world. It is not a normal monday thru friday (9 to 5).

DJ-ing isn't just a weekend job either. Its marketing, promotions, investment in music and equipment, networking and everything else that goes into making a successful business.

Professional DJ: Is someone who arrives on time, or early. Dresses appropriate to the occasion.

Professional DJ: treats clients with dignity and respect, and also expects the same in return.

Professional DJ: Knows how to spin ALL forms of music. Not just house, or hip hop - but also funk, disco, country, latin. A professional DJ will study a musical form before spinning it at an event. We normally have that additional time between jobs to learn about new genres of music, and sometimes go back and re-educate ourselves on some of the classical forms too.

Professional DJ: Knows when to get on a mic, and when NOT to be on the mic.

Professional DJ: Understands the changes in technology.

Professional DJ: Teaches others about music.

Professional DJ: Has been working full time as a DJ for more than 8 years. With an average of 200 events per year.

If you choose to hire someone without qualifications, ask yourself this:
"Would you hire a friend to be your dentist - if that person wasn't fully qualified?"
Why would you hire an unqualified person to DJ your party?
