How long have you been hosting events? I’ve been hosting events as an MC for 12 years or so.

What is your specialty in music?  I’d like to say that there’s no music I specialize in, however top 40 hits seem to be the most common genre I play week after week.   However, there are lots of ethnic events I do such as Filipino, Latino, Jewish, Middle Eastern and Caribbean.

What have you overcome as a DJ/MC to become better at your craft?  Speaking in front of a live audience. To speak on the mic in front of a live audience.  Lately, doing events that I’m not strong in (Mitzvahs)

Can you share one of your best wedding experience?  Under a tent in 96 degrees humidity and everyone was miserable.  I was able to win the crowd over without drawing anymore attention to the uncomfortableness.  Not a big crowd, but i was able to get them to dance regardless of the heat because I got personal with everyone. I studied the names of the intros and used it calling people out throughout the night.  They wrote a review days later without me asking for the review about how well it went

Can you share one memory as to “how you saved a party from a disaster? See above.

What information can you share with potential clients who want to book you as a host?  Relating to their current situation and extract their emotions.

What’s your mission for your clients when they book you!!!???  Have the best time of your lives before you get hitched!

How long have you been hosting events?
I have been hosting event for 3 years under LJDJs.

What is your specialty in music?
I’ve DJed many genres from African to Motown but my specialities in music include Hip-Hop, Jersey Club, House, and Pop.

What have you overcome as a DJ/MC to be better at your craft?
I have overcome one of the most uncomfortable and nerve-wracking situations, public speaking.

Can you share one of your best wedding experiences?
One of the best wedding moments I have experienced was seeing TKA perform live at a wedding on New Years. They were a ton of fun and it was great to see all of the adults become kids again when they performed their favorite songs.

Can you share one memory as to how you saved a party from a disaster?
During a 1st communion event I was hosting, one of the grandfather’s fell in the lobby and the entire was cleared as everyone ran to the grandfather. After about 3 minutes of panic, it was my job to get everyone back into the room and their minds off of what happened. I got everyone back in with a game of Ballroom Blitz followed by several other line dances and by that time, the coast was clear and everyone had moved on from the situation. Also the grandfather was fine because he came up to me later on and said, “Don’t worry I fall all the time.”

What information can you share with potential clients who want to book you as a host?
I like to give events a fun, youthful, and exciting feel when I am hosting, allowing for everyone to have a great time and experience. Communication with a client is key and I will always make myself available to answer any questions they may have or just put them at ease from all the stresses of event planning.

What’s your mission for your clients when they book you?
My mission is to always give my clients piece of mind that their event is taken care of and give them the confidence of knowing that they made the right choice picking me to host their event.

How long have you been hosting events? For about 10 years now.

What is your specialty in music? I specialize in Latin, Top 40s, House, Oldies, and my favorite Dance Hall and Reggae.

What have you overcome as a DJ/MC to be better at your craft? One of the things that helped me better my craft was the pressure of performing at an event. Fear was also a small factor that mixed in with the pressure as well. At the end, I over came pressure by preparing for my events and also making time management a priority. I made sure that I would practice all announcements a head of time and right names phonetically. With fear, after doing my first event I pretty much told myself that there is nothing to be afraid of because I want to do this for the rest of my life.

Can you share one of your best wedding experience? The best wedding experience I had, I did last year at the Park Savoy in Florham Park, NJ for a couple who are professional ballroom dancers. What I loved is that you can sense their guest were itching to dance because they are all students of the dance school the couple owns and runs. Once formalities were over, the dance floor was flooded with dancers of all ages. I had the opportunity to meet a 5-time World Champion in ballroom dancing and a dancer who was partners with Michael Irving on ABC’s Dancing with The Stars.

Can you share one memory as to “how you saved a party from a disaster? The grandmother of the bride had a bad heart attack during the last hour of the wedding. After the ambulance came and the bride calming down a little, there was only about 5 minutes left and as per request from the bride during our finals meeting, she requested Sweet Carolina by Neil Diamond, and I asked the groom if we can play it in the background as I closed out the event, which he thought was a perfect idea. I called the bride and groom over and had their guest form a big circle around them to close out the night and had everyone hold hands. You can see the guest eyes were swollen from holding back tears thinking about the bride’s grandmother. I told the guest that I am going to count to 3 and have everyone give our bride and groom a big group hug. As we were cleaning up to get ready to go, both the bride and groom approached us with the news that her grandmother had passed on the way to the hospital. With all of her hurt and tears, they both hugged me and thanked me for playing the song and having their friends and family join them for that hug. Overall it was an amazing event, and with the unfortunate event, I took a chance and got what we love to hear in the industry, “Thank You!”

What information can you share with potential clients who want to book you as a host? I have an extensive customer service and sales background under my belt. I am a firm believer in making sure that my clients get what is right for them and their special day. My goal is to make you feel very comfortable with me when we first meet. This will give me an opportunity to build your vision, I will show you all of the options we can provide, and paint a picture for you that will fit your budget. Weddings are very expensive and my clients have or will pay top dollar for their weddings entertainment. Our services, for example; photo booths, TV screens, lighting, or a smoke machine will not make or break your wedding, it’s the entertainer. I want my potential clients to understand and see that with the years of experience and the extensive training that my current partners provide and practice everyday, you will be taken care of. You may hear that from all of our competitors in the business, but what sets my team and I apart is the lengths that we will go to make your day unforgettable. Site visits, helping find a photographer or a florist, or you just need some to help plan your event, my team and I are there. We also set up hours before your event to make sure everything is running smoothly. My team from the DJ or my MC will get a copy of all the paper work and mapping that we build, as well as the person in charge at the venue. I am not the type of person that waits to see you a month before your wedding or event, I am here for any and all of your needs for your event until the end.

What’s your mission for your clients when they book you!!!??? At the end of the day I only have one shot to make your day memorable. My goal, is to make sure I am available from when you sign your contract, till we say goodbye at the end of your event. As your Event Host and Coordinator, I will map out your event by visiting your venue and showing how we will set up. We will talk about music and what to play for your introductions, first dance and parent dances. If you did not book our own photographers or videographers, give me their information so I can reach out to them. The list can go on and on with what I can do for you and your day. My mission is to make sure you and your guest never forget the amazing time we had. I know that my mission is complete once I say goodbye and you are happy with what I promised you.

How long have you been hosting events? I’ve been DJ’ing in one form or another for about 15 years.  More recently, I’ve been hosting events and helping brides and grooms plan their weddings for 5 years.

What is your specialty in music? There isn’t one single genre of music that defines my style.  I like to move with the crowd and that means being flexible with selections of songs.  Playing to diverse crowds of people at events such as weddings or sweet 16s has really given me the experience to flow between different styles of music and keep guests engaged on the dancefloor.

What have you overcome as a DJ/MC to be better at your craft? Overcoming the anxiety of public speaking and becoming nervous while hosting an event was my biggest hurdle and the most satisfying once I was able to conquer those fears.  I had amazing people around me that gave me the opportunity to learn and advance my skills as a host and they guided me to become an excellent MC and host to this day.

Can you share one of your best wedding experience? I always tend to say my last wedding was the best experience I’d ever had because every wedding is unique and special in its own way, and theres always something in each event that makes it amazing.  It’s why I love what I do and being able to be a part of these personal and intimate experiences with my brides and grooms.  But to single out a specific moment, I would probably have to say traveling to New Orleans in 2015.  It was a memorable trip.  New Orleans was new to me.  I had never been, and to soak in the city for the first time was truly great and then to be able to plan and host a wedding in the center of the French Quarter with a ton of New Jersey residents that also flew down NOLA was an experience of a lifetime.  I’ll never forget that trip.

Can you share one memory as to “how you saved a party from a disaster? Dealing with drunk or angry family members is always something that can lead to an out right disaster for a bride and groom.  I’ve experienced situations with drunk guests getting naked on the dancefloor or angry family members that were on the verge of fighting one another because certain things through out the event weren’t going the way they had wanted.  The best thing a host like myself can do is remain calm and rely on my team and the staff at the venue to come together and handle the situation as best as possible without making the situation worse.  When it comes to disaster coordination is key.  My job as host is to keep the party fun and uplifting and at the same time coordinating with my team and the venue to address the problem immediately.

What information can you share with potential clients who want to book you as a host? I want to be sure that any future brides and grooms I interact with are comfortable with me first, and that starts by creating a connection.  From a business stand point most hosts want to get down to the specifics of planning a wedding and never truly get a sense for who the bride and groom really are.  Creating that connection and getting to know the story that built the relationship gives me a sense of who they are as people as well as their family.  And I’m able to carry that connection to their wedding day and make that day even more unique and special.  Making a personal connection with the bride and groom also allows me to create and plan an evening that’s truly what they wanted instead of trying to sell them a package that they wouldn’t be interested in.   This leads to a trusting relationship between newlyweds and myself and makes for a better event.

What’s your mission for your clients when they book you!!!??? I strive for unexpected reactions.  And what I mean by that is, I live for moments when family and guests come up to me at the end of an event to simply compliment me on an amazing show.  When a bride and groom hug me as they walk out and tell me that their family doesn’t stop mentioning how great the entertainment was.  That’s the reason why I do what I do and the mission I take on when I book new clients.

How long have I been hosting events.

I first started Djing when I was a sophomore in High School. I started organizing and hosting “Teen Nights” at different lounges and nightclubs in the central jersey area.

What is my specialty in Music?

I have played just about every genre there is out there. From House Music to Latin and also even COUNTRY. For me music has no limits. But my specialty has definitely been House Music. More specifically Progressive House, from all the years I have been DJing in nightclubs and this also being the music I produce, I developed a good ear for it and it is really my favorite thing to play.

What have I had to overcome as a DJ to better my craft?

When I first started DJing I really just got thrown into it from little remixes I was making on my computer in High School. The first time I went to a venue to DJ my words definitely spoke louder than my actions. When it came time for me to perform I walked up to the mixer and it looked like I was about to fly a space ship, It hit me I had no idea what I was doing. But instead of getting discouraged and walking away I went back every week to practice, even on nights there wasn’t supposed to be a DJ. At a young age I realized this is what I wanted to do with my life and also knew i was going to have to bust my ass. I learned all the basics from beat matching by ear and than learned how to use each effect on the mixer to better my sets. From that one Lounge it helped me expand to something I was doing on average 3 nights a week within a year to now a full career.

Can you share one of your best wedding experiences?

This is a very tough question for me. There are no two weddings that are the same and it is a different experience every time. At LJDJs we spend countless hours in the office prepping and focusing on each client where the most satisfying feeling seeing the visions turn into realities. If had to point out one of the many amazing moments that really stood out it would have to be the time I had a client break out into tears at the end of her wedding because I made her “Dream Wedding” come before her eyes. When you are a part in organizing and designing someone’s wedding, you are a major key in one of the most important days of their life and they will never forget you.

What information can you share with potential clients who want to book you as a host?

Doing this for as long as I have been, I have met a lot of amazing DJs, MCs, and Event Designers. For me, it is not just about the music that is being played. It is about the atmosphere I am creating. The amount of detail that goes into every production for each step of an event is so huge! Hearing each couples story and bringing out their personality at the event is what makes every wedding different and unique.

LJDJ’s Scores Big at Mobile Beat Las Vegas 2016!

LJDJ’s Scores Big at Mobile Beat Las Vegas 2016!

By Calynn M Lawrence

If you haven’t been living under a rock then you have probably caught wind of one of the hottest up and coming entertainment and event companies around, LJDJ’s! LJDJ’s is a full time international entertainment and production company. They swear by their ability to create an even better experience than you and your loved ones ever imagined. They have been in business, changing the game for 17 years plus and they are not slowing down! This is evident in their latest score with their RFID bracelets at the 20th Annual Mobile Beat Las Vegas Convention 2016. Here’s what happened.

In case you did not know, Mobile Beat is an online and editorial magazine that serves to inspire party professionals and those who aim to entertain. They focus on spotlighting the latest technology, upcoming professionals, trends and tips for successful business ventures and event planning execution. Because of this, the magazine rightfully boasts that they have globally boosted bookings, improved performances and escalated many businesses. Aside from their magazine, they host events and conventions. One of which was their convention in 2016, located in Las Vegas, Mobile Beat Las Vegas. Anybody who’s anybody was there, including LJDJs very own Bryan Laycock and Jack Bermeo.

While in attendance, the people at LJDJ’s had an awesome time, enjoying not only the business benefits, networking opportunities and learning experiences but they thrived on the great atmosphere and fun spirit that was provided! One of their biggest accomplishments at the event was their time working with multi-award winning party hardy mogul Redfoo from the band LMFAO.

IMG_1147IMG_1172

They allowed him to use their RFID bracelets that contain the latest technology and he was impressed to the point where he requested to have them at his future shows. What a huge win for them! Given his extensive experience in the industry, his approval evokes accomplishment, as his opinion is very weighted.

What makes these bracelets so appealing? Well, in short, there is an RFID chip placed inside of the bracelet so that it can send out radio waves. This technology is seen at Disney World and other them parks where you the guests, can now be part of an extravagant show! The way this product worked for MBLV was very interactive and entertaining for the guest. 500 RFID Bracelets were passed out through out the venue and a simple DMX controller controlled them all. This Technology is so advanced that we can enable more features like when you walk into your event, it automatically registers you as a scheduled guest, given that you were in fact a scheduled guest with an activated RFID wristband, and allows for speedy entry with little to no hastle! LJDJ’s has taken this concept and stepped it up by adding their own touch and taking innovative thoughts from “ideas to execution. Speaking on their RFID Bracelet services, the site quotes the following: “We put each guest right in the middle of the action where they instantly become part of a show. We add energy and emotion to any event, providing the nonverbal cues that draw people together and define memorable moments for your guests.”

IMG_1149

As you can see, this new technology is hot and will be surfacing at all of the coolest events! It’s convenient, simple and effective. On top of that, it is backed by some of the most respected entertainers in the game right now. Artists such as Taylor Swift, Bruno Mars, Coldplay and Tiesto have been utilizing them at their concerts for a little while now. It is only a matter of time before you see them at every happening event around! If you would like more information on LJDJ’s take on this fiery festive technology, in addition to their other fantastic services, you may visit them at the website linked below!

 Fashion is about embodying your personality within the garments

for the art form that is character. Dress to express, not to impress!
 The team at LJDJ’s are certainly familiar with fashion being so important in the overall impact of presentation and atmosphere. Event host attire must be cohesive with the event that they are working. The event host is literally the life of the party and should act, speak and certainly dress as such!

The line is in partnership with Steve Madden Group, Betsey Johnson and their new Brand Ambassador Maddie Ziegler . This was an exciting time for LJ as they have achieved many things and formed countless reputable connections within the industry. However, this is definitely one of their biggest collaborations yet!

Are you planning a wedding and need some ideas on favors that your guests will actually like? Here are the Top 10 Best Wedding Favors that LJDJs compiled.

Keep your wedding day memories alive with a photo booth for your guests to enjoy. You have a couple of options with this. You can rent an actual photo booth where your guests can sit and snap some silly shots of themselves, or you can create a DIY photo backdrop and have your photographer take Polaroid’s of your guests that they can take home. If you have an open bar, this might be the best way for your sloshed guests to remember how much fun they had at your wedding. How about recording a VIDEO testimonial? We even have GREEN screen capabilities that will allow your guests to morph themselves in a customized background. You name it, we can design it. With todays high tech apps and more, our newest booth will give your event the most memorable experience like no other. Take a look!   https://vimeo.com/121378453

  1. Flip Flops

Just about everyone wears flip-flops at some point. And with weddings that have awesome music playing where the guests are tearing up the dance floor, flip flops are a great favor because people can put them on at the reception to be more comfortable. This is a great option for summer or beach weddings. Your guests are likely to wear their flops again once the fun is done.

  1. Personalized Champagne/Wine Corks or Drinking Glass

I’m not talking about putting the couple’s name on drinking glasses. I’m talking about putting each guest’s name on them. I attended the wedding of two good friends who did this and it was so creative! The flutes were used to make the wedding toast and now my husband, I, and even our toddler (for future use, of course) have our own champagne glasses with our names on them. We’ll never forget where these incredible flutes came from.  I forgot to mention, the corks are pretty cool to have. You never know when your going to finish your bottle of wine.

  1. Treats From a Take-Home Bar

Giving your guests a sweet to take home as a wedding favor is a wonderful thought. However, not everyone likes the same flavors. Setting up a take-home bar that offers a variety of treats is a good alternative. Provide little goody bags for your guests to fill up with their favorites. You can go with candy, marshmallows, even nuts, raisins and other snacks like goldfish or pretzels. You can have this option in addition to, or instead of a traditional wedding cake.

  1. Recipe Books

If you’re like me, you’re always looking for ways to make your diet more diverse. I get sick of eating the same foods over and over. And while I’m admittedly a horrible cook (seriously, ask my husband), I still enjoy trying new recipes. Even if you aren’t an avid cooker, a recipe book is a cute wedding favor that may come in handy even if you think you won’t use it often. If the recipes come from the bride and groom, or important people in their life, that makes the favor even more special.

  1. S’mores/Hot Chocolate

Unless you have a screw loose, or you are allergic to chocolate, you have to admit that s’mores are one of the best winter treats. Heck, they are one of the best treats, period. So if you’re having a winter wedding, your guests will love receiving all the fixins for making s’mores, or even some hot chocolate mix. Don’t just warm their hearts with your love, warm them with your wedding favor. Awwww….so cute.

  1. Junk Trucks or Drunk Trucks

Think your guests are stuffed from an evening of great food? Not when they come outside and see our exclusive JUNK/DRUNK TRUCKs. Choose from your favorite snacks including Dunkin Donuts, White Castle burgers, McDonalds and/or any fast food chain restaurant goodies. Have your guests ransack our snack truck to satisfy their munchies. Want a more personalized experience. Ask our staff about upgrading to some of your favorite foods.

  1. Personalized Wine Bottles

You can’t really go wrong by giving people alcohol as a gift. Wine is known for being a classy and sophisticated way to show people appreciation. That’s why people often bring wine as a small gesture when going to a dinner party. So a personalized wine bottle makes a great wedding favor. You can find inexpensive wine bottles and create custom labels to put on them. In fact, mini wine bottles are really cute and the perfect size to use as wedding favors. You can either put your name and wedding date on the label, or put each guest’s name. It could double as both a wedding favor and a seating card. How creative and unique is that?

  1. Homemade Goodness

While candy wedding favors can be hit or miss, small jars of a homemade sauce or spice are usually a big hit. Even for guests who don’t do a lot of cooking, a specially made edible delight is something they will enjoy. Whether it’s a BBQ sauce, a jam, or a uniquely flavored olive oil, your guests are sure to love taking home a special, one-of-a-kind indulgence.
