Besides being a winner of WeddingWire’s Couples’ Choice Awards for the past 3 years, MixPro has also been featured through the work of talented photographers and videographers, as well as website and social media postings by accomplished event planners.
Why do couples love working with you?
Couples love working with us because of our professionalism, responsiveness in communication, attention to detail, allowing them to customize their music and entertainment to their exact specifications, and of course, superior DJ skills beyond playing radio edits of dance songs
What do you love most about being a wedding DJ?
The ability to really make a couples’ wedding day fun and memorable. Allowing the couple to customize their wedding music almost always means no two weddings are the exact same. Finally, working on a vendor team where we all come together with our services and talents to make the couples’ day as special as possible.
How did you get started?
I got into DJing about 10 years ago while going to college at the University of Georgia. At the time, I knew nothing about DJing weddings and only DJing the college bar scene and college social events. As my friends started getting engaged, it was almost inevitable that they would reach out to me to DJ their weddings. The transition from “bar DJ’ to wedding and private event DJ was tough at first because I still had that stigma of being a “bar DJ.” However, as I began being booked more and more for weddings, I used those experiences to better my product as well as develop a good reputation. I also made sure to network with venues and planners when I could.
What 3 words best describe your DJ’ing style?
Versatile, Talented, Energetic.
What’s your setup like?
Our standard setup for mobile events is a Pioneer DDJ-SZ professional DJ controller and MacBook Pro running Serato Pro DJ software. We have plenty of premium sound, dance lighting, uplighting, etc. to fit any type of event, big or small.
What budget range do you cater to?
My company’s packages start at $1295 and up.
What is one track that never gets old for you no matter how many times you play it?
Probably Montell Jordan – ‘This is How We Do It’.
I would give DJ Fred six stars if I could! His playlist at our wedding was incredible, and it perfectly mirrored our personal tastes in music that we had shared with him. From the time the dance floor opened until the last song, the dance floor stayed packed. In fact, a few guests even texted me after the wedding to request a copy of the playlist…and, of course, DJ Fred provided a detailed spreadsheet almost immediately after we asked him about it. Moreover, he was incredibly easy to work with and professional throughout the process. He helped us by creating several personalized versions of our first dance song to make the timing align perfectly with our choreography. He also provided uplighting at the venue at a much better price than our wedding coordinator quoted us. All in all, it was just a great experience, and I couldn’t recommend someone more strongly.
We decided to book a DJ very late in our process and I am so happy that Fred was available. He’s the absolute best to work with. He was quick to respond to every question and he even worked on the price with us to meet our budget. He’s very thorough in asking what type of music and feel you want your wedding to be, and he matched exactly what we wanted. Everybody was on the dance floor and it was like we were transported back to our good ole college days. All of our friends commented on how great the DJ was and how fun he kept the night!
Ask for Fred when you book MixPro. Not only does he accommodate your wants and needs for your day, but he will also go above and beyond and mix your favorite songs while dancing the night away. I could have not asked for a better selection of music and even though I wasn’t too specific about the kind of music I wanted, it’s like Fred read my mind and handpicked the perfect variety of songs for our wedding. We enjoyed the music at our friend’s wedding and we certainly were not disappointed with ours as well as the music selection was the last thing we had to worry about. Thank you!
