Where have you been featured?
In local publications as well as on WeddingWire.
Why do couples love working with you?
As a former teacher and youth leader, many of my first couples were my former students. I continue to treat each of my couples with the same respect and love and care as my own ‘kids’. Since I have been running events for over 25 years I feel very comfortable stepping into any situation and solving any potential issues so that they do not negatively impact the couple.
What do you love most about being a wedding DJ?
Serving couples on their most special of days. Being able to create a vibe and feel that makes everyone feel relaxed and trust that things are being taken care of. At the end of each evening, I love to ask “How are you feeling?” and hear the emotions of happiness and joy flow from my couples.
How did you get started?
I was a college cheerleader who learned to mix music for routines. As an instructor for the National Cheerleaders Assoc. I spent a great deal of time on the microphone leading large groups.
When I became a high school teacher, I used those skills to assist my students with pep rallies, talent shows and being the announcer at all of their sporting events. I had to learn to pay attention, be ready to hit play at a moments notice, stall for time when needed and keep the crowd engaged and entertained no matter what technical issue was happening behind the scenes. Eventually, these students asked me to DJ their sweet 16’s, bar mitzvah’s, quinceanera’s, then weddings. It has been such a joy to serve them.
What 3 words best describe your DJ’ing style?
Fun, adaptable, energetic.
What’s your setup like?
We have all high-end QSC or Bose speakers with high-end Shure and Sennheiser microphones and wireless speaker systems.
What budget range do you cater to?
Personally, I DJ in the $1200-$2000 range but have younger DJ’s who work for me that start as low as $599 for a wedding.
What is one track that never gets old for you no matter how many times you play it?
‘Sweet Caroline’ as a sing-along tends to cross all ages and demographics. So good, so good, so good…
Choosing DJ Cone for our wedding was the best decision we made. We got married on the night of the 2015 Rowlett tornado and had to “take cover” in our venue twice! But DJ Cone kept the party running smoothly and everyone had a great time!. He got every guest out on the dance floor with his great selection of music. We did not have to worry at all about the flow of the party and were able to actually enjoy our wedding!
DJ Cone was the best! We loved using DJ Cone for my daughter’s wedding. He was awesome to work with, understood what we wanted and engaged the entire crowd. At the end of the night, he prayed with my daughter and son-in-law as they had their last private dance.
Couldn’t have asked for a more perfect DJ! DJ Cone is the best out there! He was accommodating to our ever changing timeline. He went above and beyond what we could have imagined and even kept my Grandma on the dance floor! He truly listens to what you want and makes sure it happens because you are his number one priority. He far exceeded our expectations and I would recommend him ten times over to anyone who needs a DJ!
