Looking for an awesome DJ for your special day? You have come to the right place! I have been DJing weddings since 2002 and will bring those 10 years and hundreds of weddings of experience to your big day!


BEFORE THE WEDDING:
I know that no two weddings are the same and you have your ideas and dreams of how your big day will go. You will have an online planner from which you will be able to plan your event out and request the music that you wish to be played. I will be working with you and help you decide on the music you would like and how you would like the event to go. If you wish, I will make suggestions for all of the special dances (first dance, bride/father, groom/mother) and any other portions of the event.

THE CEREMONY:
If requested, I do provide music for the ceremony. I can either operate the venue's in-house system or I will set up my professional-grade portable system. You just simply select the songs you wish played on your planner and I will play them as you have requested. I will also work with the venue coordinator and/or the officiant to make sure I have my cues.

THE RECEPTION:
I will work with and coordinate with the other wedding professionals on site (caterer, photographer, videographer, etc) to ensure your event goes smoothly and becomes the big day that it is. As your emcee, I will keep you advised as to when all the major portions of your day (cake-cutting, toast, bouquet and garter tosses) will occur. All you will need to do is simply enjoy your big day!

My ultimate goal is to create and maintain a fun and worry-free atmosphere suitable for all ages. As your DJ, you're getting a dedicated professional who recognizes that the bride and groom are the stars of the party, and I will do whatever it takes to make your special day a wonderful experience.

Please check out my website for more info and especially the FAQ page. Then contact me at 713-320-5017 or email mitch@musicbymitch.net and let’s get the ball rolling! Read less

INFO FOR DJ

What music genres are in your collection?
50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, Big Band, Classic Rock, Classical, Country, Dance, Folk, Funk, Gospel, Hip Hop, Jazz, Motown, Oldies, Orchestra, Pop, Punk Rock, R&B, Rock, Soul, Strings, Swing
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Describe your DJ style:
I would describe my style as somewhat conservative, yet energetic and fun. I do not try to be the star of the show, after all, it is YOUR DAY. While I will make the important announcements that help keep your reception on track, I keep my talking to a minimum. My mantra is that I keep the music going, you will never hear a song completely fade out or have a break between songs. You and your guests have a great time dancing to the music you requested.
Is there a limit to the amount of music that can be requested?
You can request as much music as you desire. When I do get a request at the event, I make every effort to play it within a 15-minute time span or 4-5 songs. I take great pride in blending my music and I do not jump from one extreme to another from song to song. Sometimes, I might be able to play a request "next song", other times it might be several songs before I get to it. But I do make every effort to accomodate requests.
What is your usual attire?
During the event, I will wear a nice neat conservative shirt, tie, and slacks. I do realize that many DJs wear tuxedos, especially for weddings, however, I chose not to. My reason is two-fold; One, I am more comfortable that way which enables me to do the job that you have hired me for that much better. Two, it also falls in line with my personal belief that I want to just be a part of the event, not the star of the event, after all, that is you! That being said, please know that should you desire that I wear a tux, all you have to do is request it and I will do so at no extra charge!
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
No, I don't. I have many resources for obtaining music so just provide me with the correct artist name and title and I can obtain just about any song desired provided that it has been released and is currently in circulation. If I can not find it for whatever reason, I may ask that you bring the cd.
How many other DJs do you work with?
I am the only DJ.
What is the minimum amount of time you will DJ for?
Four hours is the standard mininum time, however, I will accomodate less time depending on the event.
Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?
Sure. I strongly encourage and welcome that. There are a lot of details that simply have to be discussed in person and face-to-face. A prospective client is more than welcome to request a meeting with me to help them decide if they wish to hire me. Once the event is booked, the client may call, email, and/or meet with me in person as many times as needed to make sure that all details are in place and we are all on the same page!
Do you specialize in any ethnic or international events?
While I do not specialize in any given ethnic or international event, I would love to do them. Just advise me on the traditions of your culture and I will ensure that they are adhered to.
Can the client submit a do-not-play list?
Of course. In fact, I would like to know beforehand what is on the "don’t play" list so I don’t play it. I believe it is more important to know what NOT to play than what to play. I want to take special care in not offending my clients or their guests with inappropriate selections.
Do you bring your own equipment?
Yes, I bring two systems.
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
I have two cyborg lights and two moonflower lights as part of my system which are included in the pricing. I also offer up-lighting at an additional rate based on the number of lights requested.
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?
Two hours to set up and one hour to break down; I will need a 6-foot table, however, if one is NOT going to be provided, I will require that I be informed at least one day prior.
Do you have any extra space requirements?
I prefer that I have at least a 12' x 6' workspace next to the dance floor area. I also prefer that no guests are seated within 20 feet of speakers so that they are not affected by the volume level.
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
I do have a banner but I do not display it at weddings or any other private event as I do not feel it would be appropriate. Same with business cards, I do bring them and keep them handy in case I am asked for one, but I do not display them.
Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?
Yes, I do.
How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?
A good DJ will read their crowd and know when something they are playing is not working. When that happens, I do change it up.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
No breaks, most clients do provide a meal. If a meal will not be provided, I would like to be advised so I can make prior arrangements.
What is your backup plan in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
That has never happened and most likely never will. However, if it does, I do have a small network of fellow DJs I can contact.
Do you book yourself for more than one event in a day?
No. I want to be 100% totally focused on my client for that day.
What is your overtime rate?
$50/half-hour; $100/hour
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
If the venue is more than 70 miles ONE WAY from my office, I do charge a travel fee based on $.50 per mile over 70. If your venue is within any of the counties bordering Harris County, Texas, you will probably well within that range although parts of Brazoria, Galveston, and Chambers counties may be outside that range. Also, if the venue is located more than a 3-hour one-way drive, a request for overnight accomodations may be made. This can be addressed during the booking phase.
What is the required deposit to secure your services?
No deposit required, however, I do require that a contract be read, signed, and sent back to me before booking is comfirmed.

I would highly recommend DJ Mitch. He was always willing to help when we had questions, and his sound system and variety of music were excellent. My mom and I had a special dance, and we needed a couple of songs mixed together; Mitch worked with us until it was perfect--- and at no extra charge! Our wedding flowed very well, and he had a great sense for music transitions in the night. He helped make our wedding day perfect!

Mitch was absolutely awesome. He responded quickly to my initial inquiry, and was never hard to get ahold of during any time of our planning. The music transitioned well, everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. He even took requests from guests. He was so laid back (which was wonderful for us) and was willing to work with whatever we asked him to do.

I have known Mitch for over 10 years. He is the best ever! He has done numerous dances at our dance studio, and I have been to other weddings that he has done. We always know we will be dancing our legs off when Mitch is the DJ. We even arranged our wedding date around HIS availability....that is how good this guy is!. After our wedding, we had him DJ our daughter's 16th birthday party. He will get you on the dance floor, if your 9 or 90! We will be using Mitch for all our future events!

Mitch was wonderful. I was really freaking out about everything being right so he volunteered to attend the rehearsal. My guest raved on the variety and the appropriateness of his music selections. I was so impressed with how he handled everything and his professionalism that I am hiring him again 3 years later to do my 30th birthday. He is very afforable and worth every penny spent.

He was an AWESOME DJ!!!! He was very professional and did exactly what I wanted every step of the way. For our intro song, I wanted him to let it play for 28 seconds, then say this script that I had prepared, and he had to say it exactly on the right timing or it would have been miserable with the music, but he did great! My family and friends had a great time at the wedding b/c of him! He was upbeat and fun. I was nervous when I met him about his abilities, but he did an excellent job!

Mitch did a great job. He provided good suggestions for songs when we did not have ideas. He was very flexible and accommodating to our specific wishes. He did not have all of the songs we wanted in his library, but he was able to find most of them. Our reception was in a church, and Mitch did a good job choosing appropriate (clean) music for the venue. He played good music, made announcements when needed, and was never overly prominent or showy. I would recommend Music by Mitch for your event.

Music-By-Mitch DJ Productions responded with the following comments:

I do thank you for your comments. I should address the issue of people missing the cake cutting and mock exit. I did make announcements for each one repeatig them no less than five times each every 30 seconds. If people did not hear me, it was because they were engrossed in their conversations and were not paying attention. And the reason things might have been "rushed" is because I was advised by the coordinator that the photographer was scheduled to leave very soon. And I will mention that I do evaluate myself after every event and I do know that I could have been a lot better in some areas. And I will apply them in the future.
