DJ Services
Hello!
 
My name is Chris. I've been DJing events in the greater bay area for over a decade and I can meet your needs for nearly any event. 

Perfect for weddings, Christmas and New Years Eve parties, birthdays, conventions, bars, and more! 

I have an enormous library of music and high quality equipment. I can play anything that you and your guests want to hear! I can take requests, play your personal play list, or hand select the music, it's entirely up to you!

Sound Equipment
 
My sound system consists of 2 Bose L1 Compact Speakers. They are very loud for their size and have excellent sound dispesion, even to the extreme left and right. They also have built in subwoofers for impressive low end response. 
One speaker is typically enough for most events. There is no additional charge to use one speaker and my wireless microphone.
Any events that take place outside or in venues larger than a 50' x 50' may want to consider using 2 speakers for louder sound over a bigger area.
To rent the second speaker is an additional $100 charge.
DJ Event Disclaimer (PLEASE READ BEFORE CONTACTING ME)
 
I believe that a DJ's job is simply to play good music and supply sound and lighting equipment. I'm not one of those DJs who is constantly talking into the microphone and pestering people to dance.
However, I do not mind making the occasional brief announcement. 
  • I prefer to do events for adults ages 18 and up. It's fine if there are some children present, but I do not do events for young people such as school dances, bar mitzvahs, sweet 16 parties, etc.  
  • Note for DRY WEDDING RECEPTIONS: In my 10+ years of experience, I can say for certain that people dance much less at dry wedding receptions. I have no problem DJing dry weddings, just please don't expect a rocking dance floor.
  • The venue must either be inside or fully covered from rain to prevent equipment damage. We do not provide tents, canopys or a portable dance floor.
  • I don't speak any languages other than English so I am not familiar with many types of foreign music. I can still play it but I will need direct instruction on which songs to play. 
There is also some music that I flat out refuse to play for various reasons. This music includes:
 
  • Anything with screaming in it
  • Heavy Metal
  • Very Noisy/Abrasive EDM
  • Anything with racist, sexist or homophobic lyrics
 
There is a fee of $30/per hour of travel time.
Payment can be made via check or cash the day of the event.
