7) Can we have a “Do Not Play” list? Answer: Absolutely There is nothing worse than a DJ that plays a song that you hate or just simply don’t care to hear so I encourage you to list for me these songs.

8)  How would you define your "style" of making announcements? Answer: I am decisive and brief and speak with clarity when it’s formal time. When it’s later on I loosen up and have some fun on the mike when it’s party time! I will keep the party lively that is the craft I have mastered.

11)  Do you provide any counseling sessions before the wedding to hash out the schedule of events throughout the day? Answer: Yes I meet with every couple for a no obligation consultation of your event wishes. I will offer suggestions and guide you through a most common scenario wedding reception and/or ceremony. This is the time you tell me what your vision is for the day. I believe meeting your DJ is key to knowing if you are comfortable with my personality.

12)  Do you have a set of references that we could contact?  Answer: Yes refer to my FB business page and scroll down to references. I may ask you to give me a reference on my FB page after I finish your event. We DJ’s rely on references most of all our customers are one time customers so it is important to get those reviews or referrals to keep a strong reputation in the community.

Mark takes the time to know the couple and the crowd that he is working with. Because of this, he keeps the party flowing and the music spinning.
