|Hi, I'm Mark Schwenn the owner. I realize that this may very well be the first time you've hired a D.J.. Even if you decide to hire another D.J., reading this web site will educate you on what to look for and ask when you are checking out other D.J.s! There is much to see and read, so ya might want to grab something cool to drink and prepare to be entertained and become well informed on what I have to offer and what your hard earned money will be going towards. As you'll see from all that is in this web site, I know alot about the business and have tons of experience in the field. Be sure to click on all the buttons at the top of this page and I'm sure all your questions will be answered. This web site has been alot of hard work to make it the most informative D.J. web site out on the net, so please sign my guest book after you've checked out my web site and let me know what you think of it!!|
|Yes this web site is huge compared to other D.J.s web sites and took alot of time and effort to design and put online. I have so much to offer in both equipment and experience that I just want to show it all to everyone. So with that in mind, just think of how much effort I will spend on your party to make it a special / memorable one!|
Just a random thought - have you noticed that many D.J.s phone book ads or web sites state that they are "Ohio's Premier" or "Ohio's #1" or "Best in Ohio" or "Areas Finest" etc. I'm curious on who gave so many a first place prize. This web site will show you all I have to offer so you can at least be totally informed on 1 of the many D.J.s you are looking at. Don't be blown away by some D.J.s that say they have 1 million songs etc. These D.J.s are using illegal pirated hard drives and they have so many duplicated songs that it's insane. Just how many times do you have to have The B52's Love Shack in a karaoke or D.J. collection on a hard drive to fluff up your total song number?
It's amazing how many people call me and the first question out of their mouth is "What are your prices?" I totally understand this, so here they are ($100, $150, $200, $300, $400, $695, $1,500, & $1,700, $2,400) That really doesn't say much does it. You don't know yet what you are getting at the different prices. Shopping for a D.J. is not something you can do on price alone. No two D.J.s have exactly the same thing to offer you. It's not like shopping for a Ford Focus with the same color and options at every car dealership and getting the best price. There is a reason for that D.J. that charges only $200 to do a wedding, or even those that will do it just for free drinks. Yeap, there's nothing like having a totally drunk D.J. ruin your party. Poor quality equipment, illegally obtained music and very little experience at a formal affair are just some of the reasons for price differences. Come to think about it, I get at least 2 phone calls every year from an upset bride a week before her reception. She's scrambling to find a D.J. because the one she thought she had has canceled out on her at the last moment. Many times the D.J. was a friend of the family and chances are he was going to do it for free or at a much reduced rate but when he got a call from another bride who was going to pay money or pay more then the other bride he canceled out the previous engagement. That's the difference between a "amateur" and a "professional". It's just another example of that old saying,"YOU GET THAT YOU PAY FOR"! Except with FIRST CLASS D.J. & SERVICE YOU GET MUCH MORE THEN YOU PAID FOR!! When you're spending hundreds of dollars for a hall, hundreds on the brides dress, and thousands on the food, you don't want to cut corners on the only thing that will provide your guests with a great time and keep them at your party and give them enjoyable memories for years to come. I've even had people that have said, "We don't need any lights". That's a big mistake unless you're asking me to do a outside show in the daytime...or a funeral!! How much fun do you have listening to the radio in your car compared to going to a live concert somewhere? There's a big difference in the energy level and much of that has to do with the visual aspect which is caused by the lighting effects. Sound quality is another thing that makes the difference. Compare the sound of a cheap boom box to a band performing live. You need big speakers to get the warmth and low end to fill the space of a big hall. Speakers that are cracking due to a small power amp being overdriven is tiresome on the ears and the brittle high end will not get your guests on the dance floor and excessive low end will actually give your guests diarrhea - proven fact honestly. If you think prices for a D.J. are high, you have to take into consideration the non-stop expense of keeping the music current, the repairs and moderization of sound and lighting equipment and the, 2 - 5 hours of set up and 1 1/2 hours of break down time as well as the time to drive to your reception hall and the 6 hours of non stop music being provided. That's usually a 12 to 13 hour day for me.
Years ago I got invited to a wedding reception that I attended and I witnessed a D.J. that played only one style of music....COUNTRY.....all night long other then The Chicken Dance and Y.M.C.A.! This D.J. was also using, believe it or not....car stereo speakers as his main speakers on the stage and a guitar amplifier to power them. Everything sounded very honky midrange in tone. He didn't even have something as simple as a mirror ball for dance floor lighting. I really felt sorry for the bride, knowing she could have and should have had so much better for entertainment. All D.J.s are not created equal.
How are these new D.J.s gonna get their learning experience??? They're gonna learn from all the mistakes, if they learn at all, that they'll make at your party that you're paying for. Kinda like getting paid money to go to college!! I don't think you want to pay for their education do you? So be sure to go with an experienced fulltime D.J. and not a part time D.J. with a full time job somewhere else. He might have to cancel out on you the week of your show due to a mandatory work weekend at his full time job. Trust me - this stuff does happen!!
You never know how bad many D.J.s out there really are until you get to see and hear a good one - only then do you realize how bad things are. Imagine having lived your entire life only having hot dogs to eat then one day you get to dine on steak and lobster - only then do you realize just how blah hot dogs are!
| I am one of the areas few full time professional D.Js! I've been D.J.'n for 17 years and have made my entire living as a D.J. for 16 years! Keeping my show the largest around is a full time job and a job I love doing. Since I do this full time that means my ability as a D.J. is always on top. You know how it is when you go on a vacation for a couple of weeks, then come back to work and it takes you a couple of days to get back into the swing of things? Well, you don't want some person D.J.'n your event that doesn't get into the swing of things till after the show is over do ya?? That's why you don't want some part timer weekend hobby D.J. doing your expensive event. While a part time D.J. can be fine for hog roasts and maybe a bar. It takes alot of knowledge and experience in handling a formal affair with hundreds of people of all ages and backgrounds in atttendance. There's so much more to being a D.J. then just pressing a play button!!
I do nearly 100 shows a year in clubs & weddings so I have to have the music that gets the crowd up and dancing and I know how to "read" the crowd to keep them on the floor if they want to dance. Being a D.J. for parties is very different from being a radio D.J. As a radio D.J. you never see your listeners so you never learn to "READ THE CROWD", plus most of the music on the radio is "NOT DANCE ORIENTED MUSIC". I'm lucky if 3 songs out of the 200 new songs I get each month are songs that will get people on the dance floor. After all isn't that the name of the game....keeping your guests of all ages on the dance floor having a great time? I won't embarrass your guests by physically going out into the audience and pulling up unwilling people onto the dance floor. Not everyone's a dancer....I'm not....and I wouldn't appreciate that being done to me. I will not be wearing dorky hats...can't believe someone would think that as being entertaining!!
I have an ex wife whose favorite quote was "VARIETY IS THE SPICE OF LIFE". While variety in partners isn't good for a marriage - Variety in music definitely is more likely to please all of your guests. My job is to make those important announcements that need to be made and play a variety of music in different styles for people of all ages to enjoy and doing that brings out the dancers on their own to have a great time at your party!!! It works every time!!
|TOP 10 REASONS YOU SHOULD GO WITH
"FIRST CLASS D.J. SERVICE"
|10. Experience at almost 400 wedding receptions since 1996.
9. See the actual performers of the songs on the video screens - your guests will be truly entertained from the over 12,000 music videos I have on hand to play as well as various jokes being streamed across the TV screens.
8. Free video recording of up to 2 hours of the highlights of your party when you book my Gold System.
7. I use UHF frequency cordless microphones that the pros use for less static and voice drops outs. Most other D.J.'s use the older / cheaper VHF microphones.
6. I only use odorless "HAZE" machines for fogging. While these cost $400, they won't leave your guests with burning eyes and gagging on the thick smoke and odor that the cheap $50 "FOG" machines put out that other D.J.'s use.
5. There is no extra charge for a light show, cordless microphones, or karaoke if you want it and my prices are for up to 6 hours on Saturday shows with my Gold and Silver Systems.
4. All sound & lighting equipment is professional high end gear. No stuff available at Radio Shack, Walmart, Spencers.
3. I'm a full time professional D.J. and have been in business since 1996 and it's all I do for a living so you know I'm good when I can make a living at it.
2. I'm well groomed and attired. I won't be doing your party smelling of B.O. and bad breath while wearing some stained up shirt / shorts / and sandles. A tuxedo shirt and vest is standard attire for me at weddings.
1. My web site shows everything. You'll find most other D.J.s won't have a web site and those that do won't even post a picture of themselves or pictures of their D.J. system. There are no prices listed.......no list of songs they have to play. They'll just say they are "professional" and have "professional equipment" but a picture is worth a thousand words so don't you want to see a actual photograph at least of what it is you are paying for that will be at your party instead of internet pictures of a packed dance floor they acquired from google images? When other D.J.s don't or can't supply you with all this imformation about themselves it should kind of make you wonder how untrue anything they say just might be without visible proof.
Some couples will actually pay more for a Vegetable Tray or Cake Cutting than they pay for their DJ.
Sadly, is it any wonder why many guests don't stay much past the food serving.
Your guests may not remember the food, flowers, wine and many never see the pictures.
But they will remember the good (or bad) time they had.
The Disc Jockey is the person who can make or break your entire event.
It's safe to say that a D.J. is responsible for 80% of the success rate of your party
with your guests liveliness making up the other 20%.
Take as much time and effort to select your DJ as you did in selecting your spouse!
The DJ will have only one chance to do the show right.
There is no second opportunity to do it over again and that job should not be left up to amateurs.
