Professional Disc Jockey (DJ) Services:

If you’ve ever been to a wedding, birthday party, bar mitzvah, etc. with live entertainment, you know that the DJ can make or break the event.

A DJ not only plays music and “entertains” your guests, but they are also key in assuring the event flows smoothly.  This can include acting as the emcee, coordinating the formalities and activities and acting as a valuable event planner before and during the event.

And because the quality of service, entertainment and professionalism varies widely from DJ to DJ, it’s important to pick a DJ/Emcee that has the experience and personality needed to ensure your celebration goes off without a hitch.  I have over fifteen years of experience as a Professional Event Disc Jockey and I offer a variety of services to assure your private, corporate or public event goes off without a hitch!

Pulse Entertainment maintains communication with clients up to and throughout the event to ensure it goes smoothly.  If you have other event planners helping out, we are more than happy to collaborate and provide individualized attention to help coordinate the affair.

But let’s not loose site of the music!  With thousands of song selections, I am almost sure to have just what you’re looking for.  If not, I will purchase any song request received in advance through my very popular on-line planning package.  My sound system is comprised of high-end, state-of-the-art equipment, and I always bring a back-up system in case of a malfunction.

More importantly than even the music, I consider myself a pro at tailoring the tone of the event to the guests and type of occasion.  And that’s one of the many reasons I enjoy a high level of repeat customers and referrals.

The personality of your DJ is also critical to your event.  I am not a “club”, “radio” or “cheesy” DJ as I specialize in performing at events in front of mixed crowds of all ages.  I also love to lead activities with children, tweens (pre-teens) and teenagers and have a lot of experience performing at school dances, Sweet 16 parties and other school and sporting themed events.  I am not a large DJ company that sends random DJs to your event.  Many times, when dealing with the big companies you may end up with a DJ that you have never even met!  I will personally work with you to coordinate your event and I will be there to assure that the event goes off without a hitch, and that everyone has a great time!

The business is located in Clayton, NC and I perform primarily in the Raleigh, Clayton, Smithfield and Garner areas of North Carolina.

Primary Disc Jockey Set-up:

My 100,000 song music collection is “digital” quality and loaded on a computer.  I use a Professional Disc Jockey software program to DJ events.  This is the same software used by DJs and radio stations all over the world.

Requests can be quickly searched for and instantly placed on the play list.  Even if the requester only knows part of the song I can search for it.  I can work with you to set-up play lists prior to the function that can automatically be pulled up at any point during the event.

Also included is a Numark Mix-Deck DJ Controller allowing for seamless mixes of your favorite music.  This controller can also play from CDs as well as music players including MP3 players and phones!  Also included are digital equalizers and a digital sound conditioner / filter / power monitor for the cleanest sound and to prevent tripping your circuit breakers!

The computer itself is a Dell laptop.  Music is stored and played from redundant external hard drives.

I bring a spare laptop loaded with a back-up copy of all my music just in case I have a problem with the primary computer.

 

 

I use the Vocopro UHF-5800 Professional 4-Channel UHF Wireless Microphone System for larger events and Karaoke.  This system offers FOUR microphones that can be used for multiple announcements from various individuals, toasts, etc., and is always a hit for group songs with Karaoke.  The system uses UHF frequencies which are virtually interference and static free and are compliant with the latest FCC regulations.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The BOSE 802 Series speakers are hailed as one of the best in the market.  The BOSE name tells it all.  These 240 Watt speakers are designed to sit on the floor or they are placed on stands.  They are known for their ability to project music over a large area.

For larger events I add a second pair of BOSE 802 speakers, enough to fill large halls.  Of course I have plenty of AMP power to drive these speakers (see below).

 

 

To drive the two, or four BOSE 802 speakers I use a QSC 2450 (2400 Watt) amplifier.  At 8 ohms (reality!), this amp delivers 500 watts per channel, or 1000 watts to the BOSE 802 speakers!  In comparison – typical “home” stereo systems (larger ones) are between 50 and 150 watts.

 

This amplifier is the back-up if the primary amplifier should fail.

 

Secondary Equipment Set-up (used when you require more than one equipment set-up at your event) OR this can be the Primary Set-up at smaller events:

The secondary “equipment” set-up is a Fender Passport 150 Professional PA system. This portable mixer / amplifier / speaker system allows me to very quickly set-up a secondary PA and/or music system in a different room (or different area). This set-up is most commonly used for wedding ceremonies, cocktail hour, secondary presentation rooms, etc. I can place the speakers on a table, ground or set them up on stands.

This equipment can also be used for smaller events for back-ground music, karaoke, trivia or other activities that don’t require the volume of the primary set-up.
              

 

 

 

The secondary equipment set-up includes a wireless microphone system designed for formalities such as wedding ceremonies.  Included is a Professional Shure Microphone system with 1 wireless handheld microphone and 1 wireless lapel microphone.
