My background in music
As a youth growing up in the 70s-80s, I listened to a lot of pop, country, rock, and the early pioneers of urban music also known as breaking. I spent my waking hours listening to hits on the radio and following Casey Kasem's weekly top 40. In the mid 90s, I got into singing karaoke as a hobby, and by 2002, I was offered a job working as a karaoke host. I played bumper music in between singers. Soon I started to experiment with playing music and beat-matching and mixing.

A local at a bar I hosted karaoke at hired me to DJ their wedding. I had never considered doing it as a profession, but a light clicked on in my head, and I knew it was a path I should take. I started to get more serious about my approach to playing music publicly, and also the equipment I used, as well as presentation and presence on the microphone.

Fast forward to today; I use online planning software to assist in the planning stages for events. I also subscribe to several record pools so that I can stay current with music. I use a computer with professional DJ software, and use a DJ controller to interface with the music. I'm improving my techniques and methods of playing music constantly and have plans this year to upgrade my equipment, such as higher quality speakers, a laptop with higher capacity processing and RAM, and a higher level DJ controller such as the Pioneer DDJ-SX2.


What you can expect
If you hire me as your event entertainment, you are getting a qualified, experienced performer. I have other skills such as planning and coordination, project management, and emcee - all of which I include as a full-service entertainment offering.

When making announcements, I use a clear, professional performance voice. This goes for general announcements, to grand entrance announcements, and other oration sequences.

When playing music, I attempt to create moments on the dance floor. This is accomplished through the use of music at the right moment. A slow dance to engage couples, high energy songs to inspire and take the party to the next level, or perhaps a change in genre to encourage wallflowers to take a step onto the dance floor. I am not a monkey with a microphone, I let the music speak. I trust in my transitions and ability to create the best party.

For planning your event, I employ an online planning site powered by technology created by Planning becomes a breeze with intuitive, fill-in-the-blank forms. It includes an online song database with search, and event element scheduling.

Hiring DJ Thump was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding reception. He was attentive, professional, and most importantly – played the perfect music. The dance floor was never empty! DJ Thump masterfully merged our different tastes in music and threw in party faves we hadn’t thought to request. He even taught us a few moves! DJ Thump kept the reception on track and was a well-rehearsed MC. He was not overbearing, obnoxious, or cheesy. DJ Thump was just perfect! His fee was less than his competition, but the services were worth much more. We would highly recommend DJ Thump and will be sure to call him again should the need arise.

When it was time to plan our wedding, it was really important for us to get to know our vendors in person. After meeting with DJ Thump over coffee, we knew we had found our guy! Patrick was chill, professional, & sincerely wanted to know how he could make our dreams happen. He even visited our venue on his own time to familiarize himself with the space. For set up, he came early to make sure things were ready before anyone arrived. We were able to customize a playlist online & his great "announcing" voice kept the reception moving. At the end of the night, 1 of our guests' cars needed a jump & he was so nice to check if he could be of help. Absolutely recommend!!
