Professional DJ & Karaoke services available for most all parties & corporate events in the Tampa Bay and surrounding areas up to 100 mile radius. I also play for bars/clubs as well. I can DJ alone or also add in karaoke at no extra charge.
Karaoke is always a fun added activity but is purely you're option. I have been a musician/entertainer/singer all of my adult life and have been a DJ hosting karaoke full time since 2002.
I am somewhat new to Bark but not new to being a DJ/Karaoke host as I have done hundreds of events and everyone has always been very pleased with my service. Reviews can be read here and on my personal web site at www.RichieHodge.com
I have a professional sound system using Mackie 1600 watt powered SRM650 speakers & Mackie 1600 watt powered SRM1650 subwoofers (if needed) with a 12 channel Mackie mixing board. I have up to 5 wireless mikes for group singers, announcements, toasts, or speeches. I have a tablet that can go online to access virtually any requested song in the event I don't already have it. I have a professional portable stage & dance floor lighting system to make things look good. I use a laptop with an external hard drive with a huge song library both DJ music & karaoke songs that are updated monthly. Provide me with a list of favorite songs and I will build a digital file ahead of time so that I can play all you're favorites during you're event. My rates are reasonable & negotiable. Now accepting all major credit cards!
Feel free to contact me with any questions, I try to keep my calendar filled at least a couple months ahead so please contact me ASAP to insure that I am available for you're date. I look forward to hearing from you.
