How has lighting played a part in the growth of your company?
Lighting has been a leading factor in the growth of our company. AtlantaMusicDJ.com and EllaEventsAtlanta.com can provide the best quality customer service to the client, but adding lighting makes our company look good doing it. Lighting is part of our attire. We must look our best and nothing less. This has been our plan from day 1 and this why our company will continue to grow.
How did you get started Djing?
I will try to sum up the big picture quickly. I dance and sing the gospel at church with my grandmother. My mother would throw disco parties at the house. I would sneak into the 21& up clubs in the Bay Area of California when I was 15 and hide in the DJ booth. I quickly caught on and started DJing at clubs in the Bay Area, raves, Pride parties, friends parties, then as time passed, weddings.
What do you think makes a great DJ?
I truly believe know matter what kind of DJ you are, or what setting you are in, it is 100% customer service.
How do you think lighting effects a party?
Lighting sets the mood. When used properly and effectively it can be just as important as anything else at the event. AtlantaMusicDJ.com and EllaEventsAtlanta.com believe that the 4 corner stones to our success are the DJ, MC, Lighting and Sound.
