TAKING CARE OF BRIDES & GROOMS IS MY PASSION AND MY PROFESSION...

Having personally entertained at over 1200 receptions, one thing remains a constant...

I LOVE MY JOB! Words cannot describe the gratifying feelings I get from hearing my

brides & grooms say that I was a significant contribution to the success of their wedding.



Every bride & groom deserves a professionally coordinated, fun filled, unforgettable

reception which has inspired my complete dedication to my clients and my DJ craft.

“The Music You Want, The Way You Want It” is not just my motto - it’s my promise!

Committing to excellence in my services by striving for perfection at each wedding has

propelled me to become the most utilized single operator wedding DJ/MC in the STL area.

For absolute peace of mind at your reception, please call for a consultation…. Read less

Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Describe your DJ style:
Professional, Classy, Polished, and most of all...FUN!
 One of my biggest attributes is the ability to read the vibe
 of the room and to "mix" music of all types to keep
 the dancefloor energized for guests of all ages.
Is there a limit to the amount of music that can be requested?
"The Music You Want, The Way You Want It"
 This is not just my slogan - it is my promise to you!
 You can select as much music as you like for as long
 as you have me hired (15-18 songs / hour)
What is your usual attire?
Full Tuxedo unless otherwise specified by the client.
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
No, I will obtain any music required.
 Note: some music from YOU TUBE is not available for purchase.
How many other DJs do you work with?
ME - My name is on my contract - when you hire me you get me.
 I am personally committed to each of my brides & grooms.
 My clients hire me based on my experience and 1200+ successful reception completions.
What is the minimum amount of time you will DJ for?
4 Hours is my minimum.
Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?
Yes - every email, phone call, meeting, site survey, etc.
 will be handled by me personally and all are included in my price.
Do you specialize in any ethnic or international events?
No
Can the client submit a do-not-play list?
Yes - this is your event. A do not play list is good insight.
 The more I know about your needs - the better I can serve you.
Do you bring your own equipment?
Yes - My equipment is very high quality.
 Because I have a degree in Electronic Engineering
 and previously worked in Sound & Lighting Sales...
 I'm extremely particular about using the best sound & lighting equipment available.
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
L.E.D. lighting is included in my price.
 Additonal lighting (if requested) is available.
How much time do you usually need to set up? Do you require that the site or client provide a table for you to set up on?
I arrive 1.5 - 2 hours prior to my contract starting time.
 Complete setup is typically 45 minutes to 1 hour.
 Although a table is often provided - I still bring my own
 table, table cloth & skirt to ensure a professional look.
Do you have any extra space requirements?
No
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
Absolutely not! I think advertising at a bride & grooms
 wedding reception is completely disrespectful.
Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?
Master of Ceremonies interactions are defined and discussed
 in our pre wedding meeting. These services are then provided
 on a per need basis for each individual client.
 My interactivity is best described by my previous clients...
 "You were not too much - nor too litte"
How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?
If you create an atmospere that is conducive to having fun,
 then people will be motivated to participate. Proper music selection,
 timing, annoucing, etc. will prove that your DJ is worthy. Your guests
 will follow a solid professional because they are there to have fun.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
I do not take breaks. I do not expect to be fed. I am hired to be
 your DJ - not your guest. I do not drink, smoke, make phone calls, text, etc.
 I work start to finish to make it a great reception for my brides & grooms.
Will you arrange for recorded music to play during your breaks?
No Breaks - and certainly no dead air!
What is your backup plan in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
Being a part of the St. Louis Chapter of The American Disc Jockey Association
 allows me a complete team of quality DJs to rely upon in an emergency.
Do you book yourself for more than one event in a day?
No
What is your overtime rate?
Pricing is based on date, location, start / stop times and equipment requirements for your reception or ceremony needs.
 All of these items will determine any Professional DJs price.
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
Yes - travel for over 60 miles is based on the total time required.
What is the required deposit to secure your services?
My standard retainer is $100 and with larger events $200.
 Please call 636.519.1964 or email arockindj@hotmail.com to setup a free consultation.
 CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR ENGAGEMENT!

Jimmy was AMAZING. So many of our guests complimented him on his work. Our dance floor was full the entire night, which was something that was very important to my husband and I!! Jimmy kept us on time the entire night w/o stressing us out in the least! He would wait until we were done talking to a guest, and then tell us we should probably move on to the next activity, i.e. cake-cutting, soon. We couldn't have been happier with Jimmy as our DJ!! Out of all the weddings we have been to, Jimmy has -- by far -- been the best DJ we've seen!!!

My wife and I hired Jimmy to perform at our April 2012 wedding and we couldn't be happier with his performance. Jimmy is a seasoned professional DJ with years of experience. My wife and I interviewed a number of DJs in the St. Louis area but Jimmy impressed us with his professionalism, skills, and overall value. Music selection was very important to my wife and I. Nothing is worse then being at a wedding where no one wants to dance to the music. Jimmy is attentive to the music tastes of the audience and is willing to cater to the crowd's needs and get them on the dance floor! My wife and I relied on him heavily for the flow of our wedding reception. Jimmy organized the order of events, served as the MC of the reception, and worked with the photographer and wedding coordinator to ensure that everything went off without a hitch. The price for Jimmy's services is extremely undervalued in my opinion. He could demand twice his rate and I would have gladly paid it. In my opinion there is not a harder-working, professional DJ in St. Louis. He was absolutely perfect. I would recommend Jimmy to any person(s) looking for a professional, skilled, non-cheesy, DJ or MC for their event.

A Rockin DJ is sure what we got for our special wedding day! Jimmy was an absolute blast to work with and so wonderful. From the first 5 minutes of a phone conversation we knew he was going to be our DJ. Jimmy is so friendly and outgoing that you just get an immediate connection with him. His career as a DJ says a lot for him and everyone at our wedding really enjoyed themselves. Thanks so much for making our day special!

I had first heard of Jimmy Hussey through a friend's recommendation. After giving him a call to find out about his business, my husband and I quickly agreed he was the DJ we were looking for.

Jimmy's fees are slightly higher than some local DJ's, but his service, attention to detail and energy made him worth the investment.

He was kind, easy to work with and on top of the ball throughout the entire evening. He made a point to recognize each member of our wedding party so that name announcements were precise and the flow of the reception was seamless.

He had an incredibly positive attitude and was able to read the room, ensuring we had the busiest dance floor of all of the recent wedding receptions we had attended. When Jimmy says that he is experienced in reading the room, he isn't kidding.

I would highly recommend Jimmy and look forward to working with him again in the future with any large scale events we plan.

Jimmy is wonderful! you will not find a better DJ than him in st. louis. He is also very affordable. I knew picking the right DJ would make or break our reception. If you have a goofy DJ or one who can't even pronounce your bridal parties names correctly, your guests will know and it will be embarrassing. Jimmy has an online site that you get access to as soon as you hire him. You get to pick all the songs you want to have played at your wedding so you will only hear songs you want. Also, Jimmy calls you a few days before your wedding and goes over every persons name in the bridal party to make sure he gets the pronunciation correct. He is hilarious and super nice and made our wedding a blast! I cannot say good enough things about him. If you don't hire him you will be missing out, honestly!

Jimmy did a fantastic job for our wedding. When we met with him, he listened to our preferences and then offered suggestions. He provided a good balance of "getting the party started," but didn't go over the edge. He was dressed appropriately and served as a good Master of Ceremonies. He kept everything moving.
He was a true professional DJ with good taste. I would recommend him!

We had Jimmy DJ our wedding at the World’s Fair Pavilion in July 2013, and could not have been more pleased with his services. He takes his job very seriously and he’s really good at it (he’s done 1000+ weddings), because you cannot just re-do your wedding if it didn’t go right the first time. Jimmy took the time to sit down and meet with us to get a feel for our personalities and what kind of music we enjoy and what kind of reception we wanted (hopping party vs. old person appropriate, etc.). He played music suitable for our cocktail hour, then different but also perfect music for dinner, and got the party started in a classy but upbeat way when it was dancing time. His setup at the wedding/ceremony was neat and professional, and multiple times he offered to fetch us water or drinks or whatever we needed… He was so helpful!
The DJ controls the flow of the reception and Jimmy coordinated with us to have speeches, first dances, dessert/cake cutting, etc. at just the right time. He also has an amazing read on the crowd and knows when to play what type of music to keep the party going, whether that be a slow song or a classic that everybody knows or a Top 40s kind of song. Nobody wants a boring reception where 3 people are dancing at a time, but he was playing the right kind of music so there was always a solid crowd of people dancing at any given time (old and young alike!).
We cannot over-recommend Jimmy Hussey! Our wedding turned out perfectly, and a HUGE part of that was having Jimmy on board. He chose the right music at the right time, and coordinated the timing of key wedding events based on what we wanted. He was the best!

Jimmy Hussey was the reason our reception was a blast! He is everything you could want in a DJ! Jimmy was incredibly friendly and flexible while managing to be professional. He was willing to do anything we asked and kept our reception moving smoothly. Our dance floor was packed all night, we ended up having to extend our reception a full hour! Jimmy stayed and continued to play awesome music, no questions asked! I have never been to another wedding reception where the DJ was a great as Jimmy. St. Louis, you are missing out if you don't book him now! :)

Jimmy was a true joy to work with! Everyone complement us about how great he was at mixing songs and he kept everyone on the dance floor. His entire philosophy is to make your day special in any way he can. So he only plays music you want him to play and he doesn't make cheesy DJ remarks. He was a stellar DJ and so easy to work with. A complete professional. He is one of the busiest wedding DJs in St.Louis and we feel lucky that he was able to perform at our wedding.
