Cool Tunes and Expert DJ's at Hey Mister DJ

By Marina I. Jokic

Launched in 2007, Hey Mister DJ has caused a significant ripple in event entertainment circles ever since. Servicing such clients as ESPN, DreamWorks, Disney, and FOX, the company has gained accolades from The Knot, BizBash, The Haute List, and Style Me Pretty among other industry outlets.

"At the time, I felt there was a divide between mobile DJ's and club DJ's so [I] wanted to merge the best attributes of both styles for wedding and corporate clients," owner Lee Dyson said. "This is the skill set that allows a DJ to really take a performance to the next level: the ability to read a crowd and dial in the perfect mix of music in that moment."

Creating the perfect party takes exceptional room awareness, says Dyson. For him, events are akin to snowflakes, each as unique and inimitable as the crystalized molecules of water. Putting together an entertainment program requires understanding of the client's vision as well as being able to 'read' the mood of the audience. Hey Mister DJ is able to recreate exactly what the client wants for a party scene. Dyson is skilled at playing the highest-impact songs at the right moment.

"We also adapt our MC style to fit the personality of the clients so it doesn't feel cheesy or obnoxious," Dyson said. " Also, our DJ sets are never pre-programed and customized to fit each client's taste."

Many of Hey Mister DJ's clients are weddings, which have their unique challenges but are also the most fulfilling. A popular conception is that your wedding day is meant to be a once-in-a-lifetime event that should be as close to perfect as possible. Yet in fact, people rate the stress associated with weddings on par with other major life disruptions such as moving or career change.

That being said, Hey Mister DJ takes their role in your wedding very seriously and likes to assume full responsibility for the entire evening's entertainment to make sure it's a smooth and stress-free experience.

"Our ability to read a crowd and adapt the music programming accordingly [ensures] that your guests will socialize, dance and come together while celebrating," Dyson said. "Next to the bar, our music and MCs are the best social lubricant available to cut through any shyness your guests may have and [guarantee] a smashing success."

Hey Mister DJ's repertoire of social events includes birthdays, Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, engagement parties and more. Karaoke, lighting and uplighting, and photo booths are also popular additions to event packages. Whether your event is for 20 people or 200, Hey Mister DJ has your back every step of the way.
