I am a sole proprietor however I do network with, and have collaborated with other DJs in the area.

Yes, it is encouraged to meet with the DJ to discuss your vision.
Do you specialize in any ethnic or international events?

Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
No.
Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?
I emcee during wedding receptions to keep guests informed of which element is coming up next, and to alert guests when certain elements are moments away. I don't talk excessively and am not cliche.
How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?
I monitor the energy of the guests and have a list of tried-and-true songs that I may refer to to bring in more energy to the dance floor. I also understand that not everyone enjoys dancing, some may enjoy watching. There have been circumstances such as a middle of the day July outdoors wedding where it was just too hot to dance, and in such cases I go for "enjoyable evening" until it cools off enough to kick the party into gear.
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 take a break, other than to refresh a beverage, or visit the restroom. If a meal is served, I request that a meal or snack be provided.
Will you arrange for recorded music to play during your breaks?
The music will not stop if I am taking a momentary break.
What is your backup plan in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
I have a network of DJs that I can call upon to get assistance and ensure that the "show must go on" in my stead.
Do you book yourself for more than one event in a day?
No.

Most events do not incur an overtime rate. If there is one, it will be stated in the contract.

DJ Thump was amazing. He put together an amazing video diary of mine and my husband's relationship leading up to the week that we got married,

I could not have asked for a better memory made us laugh and cry and it is something that I will never forget.

I highly recommend DJ Thump for any of your DJ needs. I know I will be using him again for anything that I will need.

We hired DJ Thump after seeing his talents multiple times at Rock Bottom where we enjoy taking part in karaoke. We always knew we wanted to include karaoke at our wedding reception, so DJ Thump was naturally the best choice, and he proved it! Not only did he provide his services at our reception, which everyone loved until the last minute, he was able to help out with speakers and microphones at our wedding ceremony, which was at a totally different site. Having to deal with two different sites, heading up our reception as our emcee and dj, Patrick was most professional and followed through with our vision. I would definitely recommend anyone to hire DJ Thump, no question about it.

After undertaking the daunting task of planning my wedding in Seattle, WA even though I don't live in that state, I was extremely pleased with the courtesy and responsiveness of people such as Patrick (DJ Thump). Patrick was very organized, courteous, and not to mention a fantastic DJ. He was very flexible with the price, his music collection is amazing and really easy to navigate which songs to choose, and he even offered to go to my reception venue beforehand to look at their equipment setup.

On the day of the wedding/reception Patrick was already onsite when I arrived which was great! I was very impressed with his DJ skills as well - he kept everyone moving on the dance floor! Such a fun wedding and reception and Patrick was definitely able to keep the party going.

I would highly recommend Patrick (DJ Thump) to anyone for their event.

What can I say. Patrick was amazing! He was very accommodating and we had a very tall order for him. And he completed it with no problem. He was an excellent MC and DJ for My wife and my wedding. Every announcement he made was on time and he kept the party moving with his music. He even let the wedding party members know when they were supposed to walk down the isle to the song we chose via a cue card that I gave him. In the afternoon my wife was thirsty and looking for a drink from the ice tub and Patrick offered her one of his. Later that night I had burned my finger lighting a sparkler for a sparkler send off and Patrick offered me a cold compress to keep it from blistering. Thank you Patrick for your help for our wedding! I only wish I could give you a 6!

DJ Thump is amazing! He did the preceremony, ceremony, and reception music for me and it was perfect. He is very easy to get a hold of, has a professional website that is easy to use, and has so many songs it's almost overwhelming! I think I changed my mind about my wedding song at least 5 times and each time it was no big deal. His appearance and equipment are both very professional. I received many compliments about how smoothly he kept everything flowing! I would recommend him to anyone needing a DJ. He also has a full karaoke system too!

Patrick was wonderful. My guests danced until the very end, there wasnt a single moment that we werent all on the dance floor. I only gave a 4 for quality because he did things in a sort of strange order.....but in his defense, he gave me the option of making a timeline and I decided to just wing it. He did an amazing job, and the uplighting he provided really made the space look like I envisioned it in my head. I would highly recommend this guy, he is very reasonable in price and even willing to travel from Bellevue to Port Townsend!

DJ Thump provided a great atmosphere at my wedding reception. He played background music while guests were coming in and getting settled. He gave a great introduction of the groom & myself. He also provided beautiful lighting for the dance floor, and was helpful and willing to do and play anything I asked!
