Jayson aka DJ Doc: Disc Jockey, Day of Coordinator, Master of Ceremonies & Officiant
Style: Interactive, Energetic, Fun
Highlights: I’ve had the pleasure of providing DJ service throughout the Greater Cincinnati area.
My DJ philosophy is:
Brides and grooms choose to work with me because of what I’m able to offer to them, so always be certain that you have what it takes to “wow” them. My objective isn’t merely to make my clients happy and to have them thank me at the end of their event…it’s to have my clients’ guests talking about the event for weeks and months to come, and for my clients to feel compelled to refer other prospective clients. That’s the highest compliment anyone can pay me.
What I enjoy most about DJing weddings?
As a precisionist, those situations which demand a high degree of orientation to detail and meticulous planning are those which allow me to shine. The ability to combine this personality trait with a deeply rooted love for music and entertaining provides me with an immensely satisfying outlet while providing my clients with a professional, polished product that turns their affair into the “talk of the town.” My clients have enough stress when it comes to making sure that their big day goes smoothly. I take pride in my ability to confidently take a significant share of that burden off of their shoulders so that they can enjoy their day without worry.
What does it take to be a good DJ?
A positive, “can-do” attitude. The heart of a servant. A knowledge of different eras and genres of music. The ability to “read” a crowd and gauge their reaction(s) to what you’re doing in order to determine your next step(s). The willingness to get out of your comfort zone and engage with people you haven’t necessarily known for a significant portion of your life. A keen ability to multi-task. The ability to stay completely cool and collected when and if something doesn’t go as planned, and an extensive knowledge of how to handle such situations with poise. A desire for clients and their guests to have the same great time on the dance floor that you do in choosing, preparing, and cueing up the next song that you know is going to keep the energy driving.
What makes your DJ performance different, unique or special?
You’ll almost never see me sitting down during a performance, be it at a wedding or elsewhere. What makes a performance fun for me is getting out into and among my crowd and making them a part of the production…for example, I love taking my wireless microphone out into the crowd and having guests sing along with whatever’s playing! I’ve also been known to dig around for information about parents’/grandparents’ wedding songs and to make some special time for them to relive their own special day if only for a few minutes. I am also a licensed wedding officiant, so I am capable of offering my clients a “one-stop shop” experience in the event that they have not yet made arrangements for that facet of their wedding.
What my clients say about me.
“One stop shopping and excellent service”
The big feature that drew us toward DJ Doc was that he was also an officiant. We weren’t looking to have a religious ceremony so an independent and flexible officiant is what we were looking for. We met DJ Doc and he spent over 3 hours with us discussing details of our day, what we wanted out of our affair, listening to music, and discussing everything we envisioned for our day. He was wonderful and made us feel like his only customers! He personally wrote a customized ceremony for us and made sure it was everything we wanted. He also ran our rehearsal and, on the day of, he and his assistant were professionally dressed in suits and arrived hours before the ceremony to make certain everything was set up perfectly. The ceremony itself was flawless. He timed out everything perfectly. The reception went just as smoothly and had a great soundtrack to go with it that DJ Doc tailored to our specific tastes. He made sure that we were happy and that our guests were up dancing. There was even a dance train at one point. Both he and his assistant were the utmost in professionalism and they made our wedding a wonderful occasion. I highly recommend his services.
