I have been DJing for over 10 years and have played a wide range of events including numerous weddings, private parties, bars/clubs, and charity events. In addition to being a DJ, I worked in the radio industry for 5 years as a part-time on air announcer and Events/Promotions Director. That time gave me extensive experience creating, planning, and hosting events large and small, including a Bridal Show that I helped host for two years at the Reading Country Club in PA. I currently work for a media company in Manhattan in addition to DJing. Read less

INFO FOR DJ

What music genres are in your collection?
70s, 80s, 90s, Classic Rock, Dance, Funk, Hip Hop, Jazz, Pop, R&B, Rock, Soul
Do you have liability insurance?
No
Describe your DJ style:
Versatile.
Is there a limit to the amount of music that can be requested?
Nope, request away!
What is your usual attire?
Depends on the event, but always sharp.
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
No, I can usually download whatever is needed.
How many other DJs do you work with?
I am independent but I do have other DJs that I'm connected to who I can recommend if I'm not available.
What is the minimum amount of time you will DJ for?
2 hours.
Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?
Yes. I'm always happy to meet either in person, by conference call, or via Skype.
Can the client submit a do-not-play list?
Absolutely.
Do you bring your own equipment?
Yes, I have everything that is needed and if there is a special request (like a video projector), I can look into what can be provided.
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
Sound, party lights.
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 normally give myself more than an hour to be on the safe side, but it only usually takes me about half an hour to set up. The client or venue typically provides a table.
Do you have any extra space requirements?
Other than space for the table and my two speakers (which are on speaker stands) I do not need additional space.
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
No, but I generally have the table clothed and skirted to hide the cables and make it look professional.
Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?
Yes, if that's what is requested. I am happy to make announcements and have extensive experience: I spent 5 years in FM radio as a part-time on air announcer as well as Events/Promotions Director, which included MCing.
How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?
I generally will switch up the music to something they will get up to, as well as making announcements to encourage folks to join in.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
I don't generally take breaks. If the client can provide me with a meal at the wedding that's great, but not required.
What is your backup plan in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
I have other DJs that I know that would be a suitable replacement.
Do you book yourself for more than one event in a day?
No
What is your overtime rate?
That is negotiated along with the rate for the event.
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
No, I charge a flat rate negotiated based on how long I will be playing.
What is the required deposit to secure your services?
$100

Since we were unable to meet Dan (he lives in NYC), he texted, called AND set up a Skype meeting so we could meet him and get to know him. From the second we talked to him, we felt so relieved that he was our DJ. Dan is the perfect mix of cool and fun - exactly what we wanted in our DJ. (He is not cheesy at all - something we wanted to be sure to stay away from.)

Our wedding day was nothing but unforgettable. On what was to be a beautiful fall day in October, turned out to be a wintry blizzard!

Dan traveled from NYC to Lancaster, PA, made sure he was there with plenty of time to spare to setup, and once the wedding began, played EXACTLY what we wanted. He played a great mix of oldies and popular, dance songs. I heard from so many people that they never saw SO MANY people on the dance floor as they did at our wedding - and I owe that to Dan. So many people complimented us on what a great DJ we had, and how great the music was!

I will recommend him to everyone I know that is having a wedding!! Thank you, Dan!

Dan played nothing but good music at our small wedding. So good, in fact, that there was always someone on the dance floor.

I have already recommended him to a friend who's getting married next year!

Book him and you will not regret it!

Dan Sterling is a first-rate DJ and I highly recommend him. He had the crowd dancing constantly for hours with his great music choices (which included songs we wanted, the crowd requested and mostly that he added to the mix) that mixed up the pace and kept everyone on their toes (literally ;))

Dan's personality is so warm and fun. From the wedding party introductions to the cake cutting to working with the catering staff on the timing of everything Dan was a total professional, but in a fun way :)

If you want a winning personality, excellent song choice (and timing) and all at a reasonable rate, Dan is your man--he's the best.

My husband and I were very impressed with DJ Dan Sterling. We had been to a couple local events where he was the DJ and we enjoyed his style. He was easy to work with and very professional. I sent him a little sampling of what our tastes in music were, and he had a great sense of what we were looking for in our reception. He did a great job and kept our dance floor full the entire night! Thanks for being so well organized and making our wedding memorable, Dan!
