What is the difference?

I am sending you this link to offer some information on the difference between booking myself personally, and booking a DJ from our team. I am currently available to DJ your wedding, and would be absolutely honoured should you choose me as your DJ. The most popular question that I’m asked when couples are weighing their options of choosing a DJ from the DJ Alpha Productions team and DJ Alpha personally is “what’s the difference?”. To be honest, it’s a much easier question to answer if you’ve seen me action, but I’ve included some information on who I am below to try to help with the differentiation.

Let’s start with the aesthetics; the first picture is a picture of our normal DJ set up a wedding (please excuse the man bun… it was a weird time)

This second picture is a picture of the set up that I bring to my weddings

Vs

Further to the above picture, I’ve also included a short video (shot on my Iphone, please forgive the quality). A couple things of note; the lights move in rhythm with the music, for fast songs they go all over the place and enhance the party element, and for slow songs, they sweep slowly across the dance floor. The colours can all be customized to match your wedding colours.

Here’s my story:

In 2001 I began a high school co-op at the now defunct Dr. Disc Records in downtown London, On. It was there that I was exposed to a world of music, DJing and something that would develop beyond a passion into an obsession. I knew then that I would do whatever it took to make this not just a major part of my life, but something that would eventually define me. In the following years I finished up high school at Laurier SS and graduated from Fanshawe College, all the while working night clubs and parties in and around London, On. During that time I was so grateful to have the opportunity to play at now closed clubs such as GTs, Jim Bobs, The Drink, Phoenix, Tap House, Thorny Devil and more, doing what I love to do so dearly. Fast forward ten years of working a full time day job and growing what had become my DJ business, I was finally able to say goodbye to my cubicle in 2016 and move full force in running DJ Alpha Productions full time. Over the course of the adventure, I was so fortunate to have some amazing experiences and even pick up a couple of awards (for a full list, as well as a list of some of my most significant experiences, please read below). I humbly remember my beginnings of being turned down and overlooked as a DJ, to now proudly heading a team of 25 DJs & staff, playing in such amazing locations as New York, California, Virginia and proudly representing Canada in Las Vegas at the 2015 DJ Takeover, as well as growing our business to over 1,000 events annually.

MCing

Many couples who book me personally choose me as their MC, however that is not mandatory and you are always welcome to provide your own MC. Should you choose to have me MC, I can provide any of the following in my MCing:

  • Stories from yourselves
  • Stories from your friends and family that I collect when speaking with them directly, months prior to the wedding
  • Audio edits for your first dance (recordings of you two expressing yourselves playing over your first dance)

What else is included:

  • Two tickets to one night of your choice to London’s Rock The Park music festival
  • A custom 80 minute mix one month prior to the wedding for you, can be used to listen to while getting ready, rehearsing with friends, or in the limo the day of the wedding

The bottom line:

As the owner of DJ Alpha Productions, I am extremely proud of the team that we have built, and know that you will be extremely happy with your decision should you book any of our DJs. It is my hope and belief that should you decide that I am personally the best choice for your wedding, that you will feel that I was among the absolute best choices that you made for your day.
