Mike was the DJ at our wedding reception downtown and he did an amazing job. I had very particular music requests (mostly 80s), and he played the right music and MC'd with a sense of humor and class. He was easy to work with, very responsive and an overall great guy. He also provided the up-lighting which really made the reception area look classy. We will recommend Mike to anyone needing a DJ for any event. More...

DJ Mike Farmer is THE BEST. To sum it up, days and weeks after our wedding we had many of our guests telling us how great our DJ was. He kept the dance floor going non-stop for over 3 hours, and had people of all ages out there dancing until their feet hurt. His song choices, music transitions, announcing, timeline, humor, professionalism - all of it was perfect and made our wedding even better. He even edited our first dance song for us and coordinated a surprise last-minute song with our Best Man. I will recommended Mike to all of my friends and suggest you book him while he is available!

Mike was the DJ for my wedding on May 19th at Grand Tradition in Fallbrook, CA.  He did such an incredible job, the music he played was amazing and got everyone out on the dance floor.  The music can really make or break a wedding, and he certainly made it for us.  We truly loved what he chose when really the only direction we gave him was "90s, 2000s, and todays hits".  Thank you Mike!!!

Mike was the DJ at our 9/16/17 wedding and amazing! Due to unforeseen tragedy we lost our DJ we had booked about a month before our event. We retained Mike with really no information and not a lot of choice, but we are so lucky we had him! He was willing to meet with us immediately and steer us in the right direction for song choices and helped us pick songs for things we didn't know needed songs! He did an amazing job on the day of! He was friendly, responsive, asked about items we left off the timeline, just amazing! He played every song at the perfect time for its chosen event! When the dancing started he was so in tune with our little dance crowd he had the songs we tried to request already cued up and waiting! We can't say enough good things about Mike he saved our big day and was perfect!!! More...

Mike was referred to us by good friends of ours for our wedding at Marina Village.  He was exactly what we were looking for.  We didn't spend a lot of time thinking about a song selection, but Mike had great suggestions to  fit our taste.  Many of our guests commented on how much they liked the music.  He also edited our first dance and father-daughter dance songs because they were longer than what we wanted. He is very professional, but easy going and down to earth.  Mike helped make our wedding day go by seamlessly and we would highly recommend him! More...

Mike Farmer is clearly a professional who knows what he's doing and is not a noob at the DJ game. When we starting planning our wedding, we asked a buddy who has been to many weddings about what makes a reception great. He said that it's really up to the DJ to set the mood, fill the dance floor, and keep the party on track. So, my husband and I set out to find the right person for the job. We met Mike and loved his personality. He helped us figure out what songs we needed for which parts of the night and did a spectacular job running the show during our wedding reception. He played all the right songs at the right times, and did a killer job at segueing each part of the party into the next. And he gave us one of our favorite memories from the whole night - the "Second-First-Dance." Book Mike and ask him about it, you won't be sorry. More...

I have been in the wedding industry as a professional photographer for 17 years.  When it came time for me to get married, picking the right vendors was super important.  From attending over 500 weddings, I knew that the DJ will make or break your wedding reception.  The DJ does so much more than play music, he or she needs to know how to read the crowd and adapt to any genre of music.  Well Mike is the Man.  I have heard hundreds of DJ's and knew that I would not have to worry if he was in charge.  Mike totally rocked our party and I have been getting non stop complements on how fun our wedding was.   I also had him bring up lights which looked amazing.  I certainly would recommend him to a friend.

If you want your guests to have an awesome time then hire DJ Mike, now! He was fantastic for our wedding. Very quick response times via email, very accommodating, and easy to work with. I was planning our wedding remotely from Seattle and I was nervous because I wasn't able to meet up with him prior to the big day but he came highly recommended to me from my venue (Grand Tradition) and the night was flawless. I gave him a list of songs and artists that we liked about 3 weeks before the wedding and Mike handled the rest. He was fun, upbeat, and great with our guest requests the night of. He also was awesome at sticking to our timeline and working with our coordinator to help keep us on track. He's a great MC throughout the night and he's very affordable for the quality of service he provides. We also rented a gobo light from him and that also turned out great too! Thanks Mike! More...

Mike recently was the DJ for our wedding reception on 4/22/17, and we can't say enough about the amazing job he did for our day. Booking mike was easy, he was quick to respond, patient to answer any questions or concerns that we had. Even though he is based in San Diego county, he agreed to travel up to the city of Orange for our reception. He was also able to help my wife with a custom mix for the father daughter dance which became the hit of the night. Mike really kept the party going which is song choices, all of our guests had such a great time and had tons of nice things to say about the DJ. We had a really tough time trying to pick a final song of the night, mike told us not to worry, and i'm glad we trusted him. We ended the night by slow dancing to our first dance song while our family and friends circled around us hand in hand. Was a really nice way to end a magical night. If you are looking for a DJ for your wedding reception, really consider Mike, he was more than just a DJ. He will help any way that he can in order for your day to go as smoothly as possible. I was waiting all night for something to go wrong..... but nothing ever did. I know the night wouldn't have gone as smoothly as it did if Mike didn't help us.Thank you again Mike for everything!!!!!!Robert & Jackie More...

Mike has now dj'd two of our family wedding receptions and he was incredible at both. We had very different crowds with different music tastes and he was able to keep everyone on the dance floor. He helps manage the flow of the reception and really stays involved to make sure everything runs smoothly. More...

Mike did an incredible job at our wedding. He was able to work with us on our budget which was so nice of him! He will respond to your messages and concerns immediately, within the same day, if not within minutes. On the day of the wedding he was there early, and he was prepared everything he needed. While other vendors stressed us out here and there, Mike took the initiative to do everything he could and ensure that everything went well on his end. We received many compliments from our guests for our choice of entertainment. He listened not only to us, but to our guests as well to make sure that they were having fun at all times. If you are looking for somebody that is a true professional, look no further. It is without a doubt The reason why Mike has 55 and counting five star reviews. Mike, thank you for your help, we had an amazing wedding thanks to you! May God continue to bless you and your business. - Giselle & Jose Hernandez More...

I was a hot mess trying to plan our wedding; I mean, I've never done this before so how do I know who to pick in a sea of choices? But alas... Words cannot begin to express how thankful I am that we found Mike to DJ our wedding. I found Mike thru Yelp after requesting a quote from several DJs. He followed up with me in a professional manner and I called him to "interview" him while I'm sure he did the same. Instantly I was at ease! He's professional, friendly, smart, witty and a true artist of his craft. We had great conversation and I told him I would call him back later after interviewing others. Honestly, that was my intention but subconsciously I didn't look any further. DJ'ing is an extremely important part of the wedding because the MC runs the show. Mike had to be in tune with me, my husband and the audience. We were really hands off and just gave him, literally a handful of songs to play, from that list he was able to keep the party going strong and the dance floor full the entire night! I will forever remember our wedding and Mike Farmer played a huge role in making it fun & memorable. I want to renew my vows every month just so that we can hire Mike Farmer again. Seriously... if you are looking for an MC, just give him a call and talk to him for a few minutes, he's so easy to talk to and will make your decision easy. Good luck! More...

My wife and I found Mike on Yelp and his stellar reviews are well deserved. Mike DJ'd our October wedding at the Darlington House in La Jolla. Mike was easy to work with from start to finish. He offered to meet with us before the wedding to talk about the day but more because he wanted to get to know us. Mike knows what music to play to keep the dance floor full and your guests happy.  We couldn't recommend Mike enough- He's a genuinely great guy and an excellent DJ. More...

Mike is awesome! He was the DJ for our wedding and was great! My husband and I have a particular taste in music and Mike was able to play a bit of everything we had asked for. We also held a multicultural reception (my husband is Indian, I am not) and he mixed both Indian and non Indian dance music. He was so easy to talk to and get a hold of. For the service he provides his price is reasonable. If you're looking for the kind of DJ that helps move the night along and cater to your day, this is the guy! More...

If you're looking for a DJ thats going to get everyone on the dance floor, Mike Farmer is your man! He is very professional and makes the whole process seamless. He really listens to the things you want done and he is exceptional at keeping the timeline on schedule. He worked hand and hand with our photographer, which allowed our photographer to capture all the photos we wanted. When it was time to cut the cake, everyone was ready and aware. He is very good with the microphone. Also, Mike is not a DJ that will stray from your music list unless it is requested. We spent a lot of time creating our music list, so it was refreshing to hear Mike respect our time and music. He played all of our songs and he controlled the song request very well. If you don't want guest requesting songs that you don't like, Mike will make sure you don't hear it.I would recommend Mike to anyone...really enjoyed working with him! More...

Mike was awesome! He DJ'ed our wedding in Arbor Terrace at Grand Tradition. Our event was delayed by the Pala fire and Mike was a total pro keeping the guests entertained and happy. Then once the reception started he kept everything moving smoothly and did a great job keeping everyone on the dance floor with his song pacing.Booking and working with him was a breeze. He was very prompt and courteous. My wife and I did a choreographed dance and Mike was gracious enough to put together a mix that we could practice to. We highly recommend Mike for any DJ need!

Mike was fantastic. Everyone was raving about how much fun they had dancing to his music. He was the perfect MC and DJ. He helped us customize our song list and then measured the vibe of the room to see if he needed to change the song or keep it going. I can't recommend him enough. Thank you Mike!! More...

Mike DJ'd our wedding at Grand Tradition Estate on March 20, 2016.  My husband and I were very pleased with how smoothly the night went. Mike kept in close communication with us and our coordinator, and he was right on schedule and announced everything without us reminding him. I was surprised at his music selection because he doesn't seem like the type to listen to our genres. We never even gave him a playlist. Amazingly, he played some of my favorite songs from hip hop, salsa, and bachata. He even remembered at our initial meeting, which was about 8 months ago, that my husband loved Taylor Swift and he played "Shake It Off" which my hubby was very happy to shake to. This shows how much he pays attention to detail and tries to get to know the couple he's working with. He also has a high respect for veterans. My husband served in the marines in Afghanistan and Mike expressed his appreciation for him serving our country. I highly recommend  Mike Farmer for your events. He's professional, easy to work with, and knows the best music to play. More...

Mike DJ'd our wedding on 8/1/15. We could not have been happier with our decision to have Mike as our DJ. He was outstanding! We met with Mike when we were first engaged and he helped us think about the order of events at the reception and provided a sample music list. He is professional, experienced, and so personable! After meeting with him I felt confident that he would make our reception run smoothly and that's exactly what he did. He timed everything perfectly, while checking in with my husband and I throughout the night. We received so many compliments from our guests about Mike. He seamlessly played today's hits, country, Banda, salsa, and oldies. It was perfect! I would recommend him to anyone. More...

Mike was our dj for our wedding on 7/5/15 and I'm so happy I found him. I first came across mike through our wedding venues preferred venders list and may I say I had many options for different djs but what set mike apart from others was that he responded to me very fast on quotes and what he can offer me for our wedding and was very professional. We met up a couple times to go over our wedding music and our request. Come the day of the wedding mike arrived very early and had everything set up by the time our ceremony started, the sound was great, equipment was professional kept the night going with all the request we made.his prices are very affordable and on top of that he made our wedding cake stand out more with the awesome pin spotting he provided for us. Mike thank you so much for your service and I am glad I came across you. Highly recommended for any ones dj needs! More...

Top notch DJ! I hired him to DJ a corporate event on the USS Midway. He was great. I really did not give him to much information other than "Top 40's" and he did an outstanding job. He knows music and payed all the right songs. Everyone was dancing until the very last song! He returned all my calls and emails quickly. When in the SD area I would hire him again. Thanks, Mike!

Mike provided all the music for our wedding ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. He was professional and responsive from the start which gave us confidence he would be a great person to work with during the process. He had great communication and he was quick to answer any questions we had at any time. He provided a sample request list that helped us sort out the music selection for every stage of our wedding day.He has been in the business for a long time so he knows what he's doing, no surprises. He helped the whole day flow and he kept everyone on the dance floor until the last song. So many of our guests mentioned how much fun they had at the wedding and I know Mike had a lot to do with it! We are so happy we went with him for our wedding and we would recommend him to any future bride & grooms looking for a reliable guy who is going to keep the party going all night long! Thanks Mike!

My husband and I are not "dancers". But when planning our wedding, we both agreed that having a great DJ was important. We had our wedding at Grand Tradition Estate in Fallbrook and were thankful they provided us with a list of preferred vendors. Mike Farmer was quick to respond, courteous and professional. To get a good feel of our style, Mike asked us to compile a list of songs we DEFINITELY wanted him to play, along with a list of songs we did NOT want played. A simple task, but also genius. Because at our reception, we really felt he understood our likes and dislikes by the music he selected. Our reception was split between friends in their early 30s and those in their 60s. We were concerned that the generation gap would cause issues on the dance floor. But Mike did an excellent job selecting music everyone could dance to. He peppered in some slow songs (so people could catch their breath) and sped up to some fast songs to call everyone to the dancefloor! It was a great reception, and we are so glad we chose Mike as our entertainer! More...

When I asked my 92 year-old grandmother about her favorite moments of our recent wedding, she replied "the food and that DJ! "The DJ, of course, was Mike Farmer.  From the moment that we first met Mike, we were confident that he was going to provide a wonderful wedding experience for our guests.  Mike has been in the business for a long time and his professionalism was obvious to us throughout the process.Mike played a variety of genres for us throughout the event (classical during cocktails, jazz/oldies during dinner and pop/hip-hop/contemporary during the main dancing).  He provided us with a "suggestions" playlist for all kinds of different musical varieties.  After we sent him our list of preferred songs, he was very attentive to making sure that they were all played. Regarding communication, Mike was always responsive and I emailed him frequently.  About a day before the wedding, he sent us a "good luck" email and reminded us that he'd be happy to make any last minute changes to the playlist.All that being said, I'd have to agree with my grandmother.  Mike was one of the best and most integral parts of wedding not only for his playlist selections but for setting a fun and relaxed tone for our guests.Mike, thank you so much for everything!!!

We hired Mike to DJ our wedding, and he was great! We found him via independent research and reviews like these, and he was also referred to us by our photographer. As this had become a destination wedding for us, we arranged everything over e-mail and phone call. It was a very easy and smooth process! I also feel that he is very reasonably priced.Mike did a fantastic job for us. We hired him to both provide ceremony sound and to DJ the reception. It was great because Mike brings a separate sound system for the ceremony, which means the reception sound system is all set-up and playing some light music when guests made their way over for cocktail hour! We had him mic my husband in addition to the officiant, and the sound quality and coverage was top notch. No sound problems whatsoever! (I used to do theater so I'm familiar with how such issues can pop up when you mix people and sound systems, hehe.)When the reception came around, Mike was super on top of it. Mike is a pro, and he handled every cue for the evening's festivities perfectly! We didn't have a hard partying crowd - that is to say, we had lots of older family and like 25% young children - but Mike still did a great job of tailoring the music to the crowd and the mood, while including the music and styles I had discussed with him beforehand. That's another thing - Mike really listened to and internalized my requests; he even went above and beyond to track down a certain song version through his network of contacts, unprompted! It was great. Mike was wonderful, and we are so happy he was a part of our wedding. I highly recommend him to other brides, grooms, and event planners! More...

My son and his new bride hired Mike Farmer for their August 25, 2013 wedding. I really liked him. He has a refined announcing voice, but doesn't overpower the event with anything but the essentials, pretty much blending into the environment, but keeping things moving like a pro. He kind of quietly and politely keeps the schedule going with instructions to the guests, appropriate dance music when needed, and really has a good feel for the emotion of the event and "produces it" from the wings. Very smooth, very professional.When the schedule needed to adjust for timing, he flowed with it, no problem. Very humble and adaptable.He was very helpful in providing sound and hook-ups for a video presentation on equipment I personally brought, and helped make the event flow smoothly.When dinner was over and it was dance time, he kept EVERYONE on the floor dancing for hours with a continuous flow of good dance music to our taste. Can;t say enough good about Mike Farmer. More...

Mike provided sound services for our wedding ceremony and DJ services for our cocktail hour and wedding reception and did an amazing job! We had a friend play acoustic guitar for our ceremony and Mike worked with him as well as our officiant to get the sound perfect for our ceremony. The sound switched over to Mike at the end of the ceremony for our processional and everything went smoothly. For the cocktail hour I had given him a very long list of our favorite songs and I was happy to hear them throughout it and during dinner as well. During the reception he did an excellent job of playing great dance music and especially during the final hour of our wedding the dance floor was packed and the energy was at an all time high. Just before our wedding we met with Mike to go over last minute details and he got it all right. He was always incredibly responsive to email and phone calls- something I can't say about all our vendors. You can definitely count on Mike to provide you with reliable, amazing service! More...

Mike was wonderful.  He and I communicated a few times before our wedding regarding what kind of wedding atmosphere to create and what kind of music to play for each segment of the wedding.  The communication really helped.  He would ask questions and if I didn't have an answer, I would get back to him.  On my wedding day, I was so busy with everything that I barely noticed the music, but my bridesmaids commented that they thought the music list was very nice and appropriate.  Mike did a great job in creating a romantic wedding reception atmosphere.  My husband and I were so happy with choosing Mike as our DJ.

Mike Farmer was the DJ for our wedding on 6/2/13 and he was simply wonderful. Believe it or not I was actually sick on our wedding day (ugh! ) . Mike was so sweet and so accommodating to my requests. We had to delay a few events here and there, but Mike just rolled right with it. He checked in with me before each event to make sure I felt okay. As for his music, he played exactly what we wanted. We had both a young crowd and an older crowd, and Mike knew exactly what to play and when to play it. I was afraid people wouldn't dance very much and Mike had everyone on the dance floor, even up until the last song! We were surprised at how many people stayed for our sparkler send off, and I relate that directly to Mike. I would recommend him to anyone looking for an outstanding DJ, no matter what type of music.

Mike Farmer was professional from the day we met him.  Mike met me and my fiance months before our wedding and helped us plan our schedule.  It was clear that entertaining at events & weddings is Mike's full time job and he knows what he's talking about.  All of our questions/emails were responded to within 24 hours, if not immediately.Mike sent us a complete list of his song portfolio and had us add any numbers that were not already listed.  He then built our play list based on our preferences with some of his own personal touches (he knows what to play, and when to play it, to get people dancing).  Our dance floor was packed for hours.Mike also did a great job announcing guests and the wedding party, our first dance, etc... and kept us exactly on schedule the whole night.  Great memories for a lifetime!  We wouldn't change a thing.  We definitely recommend this 5-star DJ for your next event!Tom & Brandi More...

Mike! You're the Man! Our wedding reception was such a hit. Mike had the place hopping all night. In fact, at one point in the night my friend says, "I thought this would be a typical wedding reception but this dance floor is poppin' like I'm in the club! " It really was. Mike played just the right mix for the young folks and even the old folks. Even when my Tia's threw him a curve and demanded cumbias, Mike came through. He is a true professional who will keep the flow of the reception going but he is not trying to be the center of attention. Exactly what we wanted. And... He put up with my excessive emails of what kind of music we wanted. Thanks for putting up with me Mike. If you are even considering Mike for your wedding or event...Do it!! You will be glad you did!

We hired Mike for our wedding this past Friday.  I am a procrastinator so I was super busy up to and including the day of.  I only met with Mike one time and that was just to meet in person.  I was supposed to give him the day of schedule and some music choices.  Two nights before the wedding, I finally managed to email him a very basic timeline (ceremony at 4pm, dinner at 6pm, etc.) along with a few songs to play at specific moments.  I left everything else up to Mike and he definitely came through for me.  Everybody loved the music and I was surprised at how many people commented on how great the songs were (Frank Sinatra, 40's, big band style).  I was also shocked to see Mike bouncing around the room talking with staff and coordinating so much.  He was great.  I wanted a very professional D.J. with a great voice and that's what Mike is.  The first time I heard Mike on the mic was as we were being introduced and were walking in..... I was sooo impressed with his announcement.  It was perfect!I loved that Mike was a one stop shop and I didn't have to hire anybody else for lighting.  The uplights made the room look 100 times better so definitely opt for those - you will not be sorry.  He set them up perfectly along the walls with no guidance from me (another failure on my part as I had no time to speak with Mike again before the wedding other than a two minute conversation the day of)  We had blue uplights outside and those were amazing!  I will post pics when I get some.

We had Mike for our wedding ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception at Wilson Creek Winery in August. He was a very professional in helping us pick music and helped in making sure we had an awesome time at our wedding.   We were suppose to have him for 6 hours from 5pm to 11pm but when we arrived at our wedding to get ready around 145pm he was already there setting up his equipment!Mike really kept things moving at the wedding as far as telling people where to be and keeping our timeline for things going.  He did our uplighting and even helped in getting us a gobo design for the dance floor with our names on it. Mike went above and beyond as he helped me customize music. We wanted our first dance to start out traditional then we had a choreographer help with the second hip hop part of the dance. So he helped with our first song then record scratch into our hip hop dance segment.  We were making changes and additions to our music and he always emailed us back within hours!  The night before our wedding we were in the hotel emailed him at 11pm with a few additional songs and to our surprise he emailed us back within minutes sayings he'll take care of it!  DJ Mike Farmer is the best in the business and you can't go wrong hiring him!

My husband and I interviewed about 5 DJ's and Mike Farmer is in a class of his own. Mike was exactly what we were looking for, he is professional, fun, presentable, and transitions flawlessly from speeches, to first dances, to cake cutting, to the big party. He was able to get all of our guests up out of their seat and dancing! We used Mike to DJ and MC, and he provided the up-lighting and Gobo light. The lighting was the perfect touch to set the mood for reception, we highly recommend it. Mike Farmer Entertainment was an important aspect of our wedding that made it the day of our dreams. I would recommend him to everyone. We look forward to seeing him work our friend's weddings! More...

We were actually recommended to Mike Farmer by three different people that did not know each other, (not on yelp) nor attending any event/wedding together. So I pretty much already knew that he would be great and that I was going to book him immediately for my wedding on 5/1/2011. I am so glad that I did!!  Mike was such a professional DJ and so accommodating to us and our wedding guests.  ALL of my guests (even my 91 year old great aunt) were dancing and having a spectacular time. Mike was not the cheesy DJ who goes around with games and such to get people on the dance floor. (I don't know maybe his is if you want him to be! LOL) But we did not. He had precisely the right amount of interaction and just staying out of the light. My guests even commented to me what a great DJ he was and how much fun they had. We of course had a great time as well. Thanks Mike! More...

Hired Mike for an event in Temecula.  This was based upon the numerous reviews here on Yelp.  Money well spent...Mike was curteous, professional, and worked tirelessly to make sure every song we wanted was obtained/played for our event.   Next time I need a DJ or someone needs a recommendation...I'm referring them to Mike no questioins asked.   If you've found Mike on yelp and read this review...hire him now because he'll be booked fast!  You'll be glad you did.

After finding Mike on Yelp, we interviewed him and ultimately hired him and it was a great decision.  He was by far one of the best DJ's I've ever heard.  He had perfect timing on the transition of the songs, knew just when to change the tempo and had everyone on the dance floor.  Hire him!  You won't be sorry.

We just had Mike Farmer DJ our wedding on October 17th (yesterday)! I had to jump online to give Mike 5 stars (I wish i could give out 10 stars! ). He was a perfect MC, keeping the reception moving and making sure our guests had fun. From cocktail hour to grand entrance to first dance to cake cutting to bouquet toss to garter toss to last dance to exiting - THERE'S A TON TO MANAGE AND MIKE DID IT PERFECTLY! He got people dancing with great energy and music selection. There was never a lull during our entire 6 hour reception. Mike was also really helpful during the planning process, and was totally attentive to our needs. He is a total pro! More...

Mike far exceeded our expectations for our wedding day. He was professional, easy to get along with and very helpful with our music needs. Mike is especially good at keeping the party going and making sure that everyone is having a good time. The dance floor was never empty and at the end of the night there were people booing that the night was over. He is definitely a crowd pleaser and threw in something for every ones liking. Our guests said nothing but compliments about him. We highly recommend Mike Farmer for weddings and special occasions! More...

Q&A

Give the people what they want. Keep an eye on the dance floor. If something is not working, change it up. Trying to force-feed your likes down the throats of the guests in attendance is a receipt for disaster.

I get asked this question a lot. It's a hard to describe. I'm much more than a pre-programmed iPod, but less than a Vegas comedian. I'm very comfortable on the microphone, but am also aware that nobody at any event is there to hear me. I got over that a long time ago. At a wedding there are certain minimal announcements that need to be made. However, talking for the sake of talking is just an interruption of the party. This is a long-winded way of saying I know when to talk and when to keep my mouth shut.

The money. Just kidding. Sort of. I love hearing screams on the dance floor when a certain song comes on or when I make a particularly great mix. I love the comments at the end of an event. I love when a bride and groom come up to me at the end of their reception to give me a hug. It's a great job!

I kind of fell into being a DJ/business owner. I used to spin music in a nightclub. I started getting people asking me if I could do their wedding or party. I slowly started collecting sound gear and then found myself as a full-time mobile DJ/business owner. People are amazed when they find out that you can make a great living doing this.

I always refer people to what others have said about me and my business. Check my reviews. Talk to past clients. Take my rates, my reviews and my experience into consideration, as well as those of other DJs, before making your final decision.
