What is your favorite song to get people on the dance floor?

The Wobble has never failed me yet, but I’ve also had great success with Elvis Crespo’s Suavamente. It’s hard not to shake your hips when that song comes on.

What was the first album you ever owned?

August and Everything After by the Counting Crows.

What is your favorite album of all time?

I don’t have one. But if I had a top 10 list in no particular order, it would include Michael Jackson – HIStory, X by Ed Sheeran, Transference by Spoon, Justin Timberlake’s Future Sex Love Sounds, Fugees’ the Score, Imogen Heap – Speak for Yourself, Muse – Black Holes and Revelations, Queen – Greatest Hits.

What has been your most memorable wedding experience so far?

My most memorable wedding experience was my first. It was a relatively small wedding. About 15 minutes into the dance, the bride asked me if I could move my whole setup outside where the people wanted to hang out. The guests were pretty chill, but with great music, it didn’t take long before I had the small crowd on the open-air dance floor under the stars, going hard until the very last song. And it just so happened I got lucky and picked a song that meant a lot to the bride, her sister and father to close out the night. I’ve done plenty of bigger gigs, but this one made the biggest impact because of how much the bride, her family and a couple close friends were on the floor the whole night.

Name a song that describes your style.

If I had to pick a song that describes my DJ style, I’d choose Turn Down for What!
