“Take Your Event
To The Next Level”
DJ Turn Up
My name is Chase, but when i’m on the tables they call me DJ Turn Up (well, I call myself DJ Turn Up). Deciding what to write for this introduction paragraph was tough, what are the most important things to mention to an upcoming bride, or to a student booking a DJ for their prom? I could mention I’ve been DJing for 11 years, or that I’m the owner and operator of two other DJ companies. I could mention I’ve DJ’d for the Kardashians, or that I’ve performed at over 2,000 events. But there are no good ways to list attributes like that without sounding cocky (see what I did there). So in order to write the perfect introduction I decided to check out some other DJ’s websites. What I found was odd, most other companies went out of their way to say they will provide you with a “well trained DJ” or will give you “top of the line equipment with thousands of songs” - isn’t that the point? A DJ should be able to walk into any party, with or without a provided set-list, and blow your guests away. A DJ should be able to read any crowd and know exactly what direction to take the music, referencing years of their own experience in order to deliver the absolute best possible mix. No two events are ever the same, so how could any experience be the same? The mix of music should be as unique as the group of people dancing to it. Understanding how events work is also crucial, and being trained as an event coordinator helps me understand how your night should play out, and what needs to happen in order to make it flow properly. A DJ controls the music and the direction of events, so in a way they set the entire vibe and pace of your party. I don’t just stand in the corner of your party and press ‘play’ (unless you want me to). I will take all aspects of my performance and all of your details into consideration in order to create an experience for your friends, your family, and for you to never forget.
