WOW MY 1st Blog,,,,,Well Here Goes…Hold The Pickle & NO CHEESE…!!!

DJ Al Garcia  I wonder why so many DJ companies still present themselves as the same old Cheesy, bad joke telling guys forcing you to endure an overkill of personality with silly props and flashy lights and 80′s costume jewelry?  I suppose it stands to reason why I’m doing so well, because simply put, I’m not cheesy.!  I’m just a regular guy with an extraordinary passion for music, an extremely high level of experience in providing a top level DJ/Emcee service for my clients, especially Brides & Grooms and their families, on one of the most important days in their lives. I say I’m a regular guy, and I mean I don’t have to dress in costumes, wear makeup and flashy jewelry, tell jokes with horrible punch lines, or sell you crap you don’t need.  I admit, I’m not a used car salesman, I’ve developed packages and upgrades that people need, and I won’t force you to spend money on fluff that cheeses up your wedding. I do offer a very classy, fun, yet low profile lighting option, such as my New Wireless Remote Controlled LED Up Lighting which has been a huge seller and makes any room or space look amazing. There’s no big silver metal trusses and a bunch of tape and wires all over the room!

When I’m in front of all of your friends and family, I always try to look my best, always well groomed and wearing a suit and dress shirt, sometimes a tie, depending on the location and style of your wedding. Let’s face it, if your wedding is in a garden or outdoor location, it should have a more romantic, elegant yet relaxed, fun, and even perhaps a rustic appeal. There’s no need for all the Club lighting and a DJ wearing a tuxedo with a sequin vest. If you read my reviews online or talk with any of my preferred vendors who consistently refer me, you’ll find that I’m considered the cream of the crop and the top choice for the “modern” Bride and Groom.  I believe people are far more savvy today, and don’t need cheapness and cheese to entertain them. Sometimes I think my colleagues or competition think they need that cheesy DJ appeal to be fun, but I completely disagree and argue that others like myself make weddings extremely fun by allowing the music to entertain people, and as an Emcee I’m there to facilitate the event in a professional, fun and friendly way, without being a wannabe game show host, or a failed comedian.

I’m an expert with audio and music mixing for all age groups and I don’t play outdated crappy music. I play music that people love, that incites nostalgia, and that people WANT to dance to, not what they feel forced to danced to. I promise not to grab your mother in law and force her to dance with me. I promise not to tell unfunny scripted jokes, although from time to time something funny does happen at an event and I may help highlight that in a light hearted way…there’s a big difference in being “funny in the moment” and sounding forced and scripted. Most people, Wedding DJ’s included, do not have this gift. I won’t put feather boas on with big plastic sunglasses, I think it’s best left to do that at the photo-booth. I won’t haggle you to purchase “club lighting” and “motivational dancers” at your gorgeous, elegant wedding. If you want your wedding to feel like a Bar Mitzvah, or a Las Vegas Revue, let me know, I’ve got someone I can refer for that, but this is NOT the norm and it’s not something I push on my clients. I do promise to run your event perfectly, to execute the timeline efficiently without ever forcing it or being rude and pushy to you and your guests. I can pretty much guarantee that if you give me the music requests you want to hear and allow me to do what I do best, your guests will dance their legs off, and they’ll hear great music all night long without having to endure the Hokey Pokey and some DJ giving dance lessons in the middle of your event. Your guests will never want the party to end, but when it does, they’ll tell you how amazing it was for years to come. They won’t say “that DJ was so corny”, they’ll say, “that DJ was perfect for this wedding!” That’s what I do, without being phony.

In over 1200 weddings, I’ve remained consistent, and I hear from my clients and fellow wedding vendors all the time about what a great job I did, without any cheese on top! Interview with me, and I am confident you’ll find that I am far better suited for your wedding than the cheesy lounge singer who happens to DJ weddings. At the end of the day, your wedding DJ should be someone who makes you comfortable, who you’re confident in his/her ability to execute as they say they can and as you wish, and who will look great and present themselves well in front of everyone on your most special day.  If you are a Bride or Groom who wants a more interactive DJ at your wedding, just let me know, but my overall style is not the DJ who gets on the mic every five minutes for announcements like “ALLLLRIIIGHT EVERYBODY let’s hear it for the SALAD COURSE!!     Up next, the ENTREEEEEEE!” “Now let’s all do the YMCA!!!”. So Save The Cheese For Your Burger & Not Your DJ…!!!
