How I do what I do... It's simple. My brand ever since the beginning of my career has been my accessibility and interaction. Come talk to me, make requests, tell me stories
in short, Let Me Vibe With You.

Super Simple. My performances, 90% of the time, are completely organic and in the moment. Come be in the moment with me.

Hard Work Beats Talent When Talent Doesn't Work Hard. 


That's the truth. Talented people are all around us everyday but it's the one's who work hard that separate themselves as something special. What goes on behind the scenes, what effort are we not aware of that make the talented special. For those, like myself , who consider themselves less than talented, hard work is the ultimate equalizer.

What's in a set list?

Every band goes through it and ever Dj has a harder time deciding what goes into it. Sometimes a set is pre-planned other times it's an on the spot situation. Reading the room, planning for your audience, reacting to your guests and programming accordingly. So how do dj requests factor in?

I break it all apart in this weeks episode.

The Parkland Florida school shooting has rocked our nation this past week. The tragedy isn't goes beyond the conversation of gun laws or mental health. It's a societal responsibility and, in this case, our failure. A failure to love, a failure to know each other as only humans can know each other. Love More.

FROM WEDDING WIRE:

7 Ways to Effectively Communicate With Wedding Vendors


You’re going to be in close contact with your wedding vendors throughout your planning process—so it’s super-important to know the best methods and proper etiquette when it comes to staying in touch. This way, you’ll be able to maintain a positive and productive relationship with your pros. Check out these tips:

 

Stay Organized

You’ll probably be using email a great deal during your wedding planning experience—but if your wedding-related email gets mixed up with your personal email, it’s likely to become a confusing and disorganized experience for everyone. That’s why we recommend keeping your wedding-related messages separate from your personal or work email by using a system like Messages by WeddingWire—a new communication hub for all of your conversations with vendors.

Understand Expectations

In this day and age, we are so used to instant feedback—from social media to texting and more. Remember that your vendors are often small business people who have other clients, families, and much more going on beyond your wedding day (important as it is!). Ask prospective vendors about their preferred methods of communication (some prefer phone over email, others don’t mind texting) and usual response times, as well as the best and worst times to reach them so that expectations are set at the beginning. If you send a vendor an email at 3 a.m., don’t expect them to get back to your right away. And remember, your response time is important too—be polite and try to answer your vendors’ queries and requests within one to two business days if possible.


Be Brief and Honest

When it comes to reaching out to your vendors, try to be concise and get to the point as quickly as possible. Your vendors will be able to assist you that much faster. And always be honest and upfront with your wedding pros, whether it relates to your expectations and your budget. Your vendors want to make your wedding a success, so it’s important to give them a heads-up about any unique circumstances so that there aren’t any surprises on the day of.  


Show and Tell

Of course, using clear and effective language is important in any communication, but particularly when it comes to dealing with your wedding vendors. Putting requests or concerns in writing is a must so that you have documentation. And when it comes to working with creative professionals, like florists, hair stylists, cake bakers, etc., it’s always a good idea to provide photos to help them visualize the look you’re going for.

 

Choose a Point of Contact

To make things easier for both yourself and your vendors, assign a single point of contact for each wedding vendor. Things will get confusing if you, your future spouse, your mom, and your maid of honor are all contacting a single vendor with different requests. This will be extremely helpful in keeping everyone organized.


What's Your Timeline?

If your wedding is still months away, you shouldn’t be contacting your vendors that frequently—they likely have other clients and imminent weddings to handle first. As it gets closer to your wedding day, the communication can and should increase, but again, be mindful of your vendors’ schedules as it pertains to their response time. Of course, if a vendor isn’t getting back to you in a reasonably timely fashion you can speak up, but try to be understanding of their schedules.


Trust The Pros

Your wedding vendors are there to help you create the wedding of your dreams and to make the process easier for you, not more difficult. If you have concerns about their pricing, for example, ask for explanation of their services and see if there is a way you can work together—don’t accuse them of trying to overcharge you. Communicate with a positive attitude and a desire to learn more, rather than complaining or accusatory. This will help foster a successful vendor-client relationship and ensure a successful wedding day.
