Eric & Misty Aaronson - Pier 5 Hotel - Baltimore, MD
I just got a new wedding testimonial!l This one comes from Eric & Misty from Baltimore, MD. This was a fun party and my favorite part came at the very end. For the last song of the night (Katie Perry - Firework) everyone went outside to the connecting patio and lit up sparklers. It was a really cool moment! Congratulations Eric and Misty and thanks for the testimonial!
"When the wedding planning began, the easiest task to cross of off the "to do list" was hiring DJ Flounder for our big day. We wanted a fun and energetic DJ that brought a unique spin to music that would engage guests of all ages. Which is exactly what we got and loved every minute of it! Hiring a DJ that uses real turntables was also a great "wow factor" for our guests and something that everybody wanted to see. Flounder's abilities to mix music from multiple generations was amazing and appealed to all of our guests. The last hour of the night Flounder was on fire and not a single person was sitting down!
There's nothing worse than having a boring wedding reception where nobody dances and thanks to Flounder our wedding night was the greatest night of our life! When all was said and done even our most conservative guests couldn't stop saying how much fun they had dancing the night away! Your wedding night is a night that you remember and talk about with your spouse forever. I'm just glad that we had DJ Flounder there to provide the soundtrack!
Thank you DJ Flounder for a night we'll never forget!"

A lot more to come...stay tuned! Click here to learn more about my wedding services.
This is my very first mixer. It's now retired and hangs on my office wall thanks to my girlfriend. She's crafty. I really love it. Not just because it smells like the 70's..it's a reminder of why I became a dj.
Nowadays it seems like everyone is a DJ; Paris Hilton, Pauly D or that old lady on youtube. I know a lot of dj's out there who are not happy about this recent phenomenon. They say anyone can become a dj overnight and the market is getting saturated. I see both sides.
The good of it is that dj'ing is finally mainstream. It's not nerdy to be a dj. When I started, that certainly wasn't the case. The image of a dj was a cheesy dude with a mullet wearing a vest with musical notes. Those guys are still around but it's certainly not the norm.
It's true that these days anyone with a computer and a twitter handle can be considered a dj. But that's like saying anyone with a guitar or a drum set is a musician. It takes time to develop the true talent of a DJ. Sure, anyone can press play...but music selection, mixing & scratching, and problem solve on the fly...thats true skill.
Then there is that X-Factor. The ability to connect with your audience...
This past May marks 20 years of me being a professional DJ. I am still constantly learning. My first job was for my friend Josh who had a party at a community center. I borrowed my dads home speakers, tape and cd player. It was a disaster but that's for another blog entry. 18 years later I dj'd Josh's wedding. I didn't become a dj to become famous or so I could hang out at clubs until 3am. I did it because I love music and I love connecting with my audience...taking them on an emotional journey with sound. You can't learn that overnight no matter how many twitter followers you have.
George and Joanna Wallace's wedding at the Key Bridge Marriot, Washington, DC - June 23, 2012
Most Requested Song: Carly Rae Jepsen - "Call Me Maybe"
Do the kids still say phat? I had a great time dj'ing George & Joanna's wedding this weekend! I got to play with a greek band which is always a blast. I was a little upset that they didn't break any plates...but I know the Key Bridge Marriot was happy about that. Joanna already wrote a nice testimonial for me!
"DJ Flounder was the DJ at our wedding and we could not have been happier. He catered to the crowd and made sure we played music that guests of all ages enjoyed. We also had a Greek band and he was very flexible in working with them. He played several of his trademark mashups which the crowd loved. You will not be disappointed if you use him!!!!!! A PLUS!"
My mother is proud...I'm finally getting good grades! OPA!
