We ask every Elite Entertainer what their favorite thing about DJing is. Dan is the only one who has ever answered: “The Pressure.” He went on to explain, “knowing that I’m responsible for everyone having a great time. . . . this allows me to use all my tools including my personality, music knowledge, and performance ability to not only enhance a party, but create a brand new, amazing experience for each client”
And when Dan talks about “tools” this guy’s got a lot of them!
Besides a great look and outgoing personality, Dan is a musician (he plays drums, guitar, trumpet and keyboard). In fact his first DJing gig ever was for a friend’s Sweet 16 and he just used a computer and his band’s PA system. Dan’s something of a computer geek (he calls himself the “coolest computer nerd you will ever meet”) but he’s also athletic (he plays sports as well as coaches baseball at Toms River Sports Academy). And as far as public speaking goes, Dan’s tried his hand at stand-up comedy. That’s about the highest form of public speaking there is. If you can handle that “pressure” he can handle just about anything!
While he loves every type of event, from School dances to anniversaries, when pressed for a favorite he admits its weddings. “I love weddings because you get to be a part of the most important day in someone’s life which always makes for an exciting time with a lot of interaction,” he tells us. “Weddings tend to be the most diverse parties in terms of guests and types of music which really keeps each party relatively different and fresh.”
Dan has a BS in Computer Science from Ramapo College (there’s the nerd part) and he works at the FAA Technical Center as an engineer writing software for air traffic control simulation. As if that’s not enough to keep him busy, Dan has started a mobile game company, creating games for Android. In his spare time he roots for all the local teams (Yankees, Giants, Knicks and Rangers).
Dan’s an incredibly popular entertainer and his schedule fills quickly. If you’re interested in reserving him for your event, contact us today!
Want to get to know Dan even more? Check out this quick video introduction:
V-Logs are quick event recaps done in a montage format so you won’t hear much real audio but you’ll get a fast paced and fun overview of each party.
Our Live Audio videos are longer than our V-Logs and they feature actual audio from the event. You’ll hear some or all of the bridal party introductions and then a variety of footage from the event. Keep in mind that any song you hear may have been selected by that specific client and the music we play at your party will be approved by you.
