Top 10 Most Frequently Asked Questions
1. Do you, as the company president, perform at events and what differentiates you from the other DJ's?
Yes, absolutely, I perform at as many events as I possibly can. I've been in the entertainment business for most of my life and to me it's not just a job it's what I love to do. During the week, I operate Audioworks, my professional recording studio. I'm a singer, songwriter, producer & audio engineer as well as a DJ. I am most comfortable when I am performing. As an area DJ, I regularly provide music for several singles dances and that requires me to have an extensive knowledge of music; including the greatest hits of the past and present. This, coupled with my sound quality expertise, I believe, qualifies A Beat Away Entertainment as New England's most complete and professional DJ Company available today.
2. What makes A Beat Away Entertainment different from other DJ companies?
What makes us different is our ability to adapt to a changing market and remain on top of the DJ entertainment industry. Over the past 15 years, A Beat Away Entertainment's advertising/marketing team has researched and analyzed other successful DJ companies in order to continually raise the standard of the entertainment we provide. We eagerly learn from our competition's successes, as well as their mistakes. We know what works and what doesn't. A Beat Away Entertainment pledges to continue its pursuit of being an industry leader and we hope we can provide you, your Family, and friends with the most professional and exciting DJ entertainment yet!
3. What kind of equipment do you use and does your company prepare for "technical difficulties"?
I currently use A Bose® sound system and I often combine that with my JBL equipment for outdoor and arena style events which requires a bigger sound. I also use a HP digital laptop system with over 50,000 songs to choose from and I always carry additional CD decks as well as a back up CD collection and my Apple iPod.
4. How long has A Beat Away Entertainment been business and what do you require of your DJ's?
A Beat Away Entertainment has been satisfying thousands of customers since 1990. Our DJ's have performed at hundreds of events and serves the entire Boston Metropolitan area. Each new DJ must complete an extensive apprenticeship and never performs solo until they're ready. Our training program and selection process is stringent and only the finest DJ's become part of our team.
