FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: HOW MANY COUPLES HAVE YOU WORKED WITH AS A DJ/MC FOR THEIR WEDDING?
A: By the end of 2023, I'll have humbly been hired & worked with over 150 weddings (and counting) since starting in 2014. Every wedding is special and every wedding is custom tailored from scratch - so I've acquired A LOT of unique playlists and mixes from every celebration. I've been fortunate to receive lots of recommendations from past couples to couples that are engaged. It's a damn fine feeling all around to be involved in weddings no matter how well we know each other.
Q: DO YOU HAVE VIDEO OF YOU as A DJ/MC?
A: The short answer is no. Well sorta. If I remember to take photos or videos during an event, some end up on my Instagram (@peopleskaraoke). Beyond that, I hope my Wedding Wire reviews help paint a better picture than a cliche cookie-cutter 2 minute video.
Q: If there are certain songs we definitely want to have played and songs we definitely don't want popping up - do you honor these requests during the event?
A: Of course! Absolutely. It's a standard practice and it goes without saying that your specific requests always come first! The DO & DON'T playlist is a sacred thing. I'm here to bounce off ideas, consult, and determine what music will be something you and your guests will enjoy hearing. If there's something I didn't already previously own in my DEEP collection that you request earlier, I will make sure I have it for your event!
Q: DO YOU HAVE A PARTICULAR STYLE OF DJ-ING?
A: I love learning about what you think will make or break the party and will select songs that work well for your crowd. Plus as cliché as it sounds - reading a room is a natural skillset. In the context of a wedding or company outing, my focus is to "shut up and play the hits" from the past 70 years and I have a lot of fun doing so. We can always fine tune it to your style & preference - I am knowledgeable and flexible. I will gladly talk more about DJ-ing when we chat.
Q: May we have you make announcements and introductions during the wedding as needed?
A: No problem! I will expertly & professionally handle your MC duties as you see fit. I will happily coordinate with your day-of coordinator and/or wedding planner with the timeline and we'll figure out when announcements should be made. Otherwise, take comfort in knowing I don't pick up the mic because I'm focusing on you, the music, and your guests.
Q: Can AUX Boston recommend any photographers for our wedding?
A: Definitely! I've worked with several AMAZING photographers who are an absolute joy to work with and we work well with each other. It's a pretty cool community and when you find folks you click with - well you just want to share and spread the love so other people benefit from their talent. For example, here's a handful of very super rad & talented folks I *LOVE* working with (in no particular order). Check them out and say hello!
