I know, I know! Finding a great DJ is a lot of trouble!
As an event planner, myself, I know how difficult it can be to book the right artist.
I once watched a group of 3 "DJs" fight over the turntables and microphone for an hour straight because *THEY* wanted to play the next song. Meanwhile, all three were playing terrible music for the crowd, massaging their egos while the organizers massaged their temples.
Okay, this is an extreme example, but you get the idea.
The problem is feeling confident that you made a quality purchase. There's so much information asymmetry out there and lots of low quality acts get away with misrepresenting themselves or ignoring the needs of the client, while still getting paid!
Luckily, there are DJs out there who are high quality and can prove it. Great Private Event DJs weave accountability to quality of service and commitment to customer needs into their music selection process.
By using my services as an example, this page seeks to educate you, the DJ-seeking event organizer, on how to navigate your purchase of a DJ to feel more confident that your party or event is going to get the best music treatment possible!
Its simple: Less stress, more joy
My approach to helping you with your event
I aim to relieve you, the event organizer, of as much stress around the musical entertainment as possible.

Oh and by the way...
I have extensive experience in event planning. Upon booking, you will have access to all my contact information, not only to communicate about DJing, but also if you want to run a marketing idea by me. I specialize in online and experiential promotion / marketing and additionally know countless event vendors in the Boston area. Ask me anything! (Resume, below)
Think of what you're actually buying and let it guide you.
- It's not really to have someone fade from track to track, really smoothly (you know robots can do that, now!).
- The DJ's job is to simplify your life and improve the quality of your event. They must be flexible, responsive, prepared and helpful!
Ask whether they do song requests. If you can, try asking on the phone. Their response is a huge clue for how "me-centric" vs. "client-centric" the DJ operates. If they seem frustrated by the question, they're less likely to be helpful, professional and responsive.
