Jason Jass, Visions Entertainment, shared DJ advice about what it takes to create an amazing party. I've known Jason for many years, and he always is a true professional. His advice to engaged couples is spot on! How did you start in this industry and how did you know you could be great at what you do?
I learned from the best and started my own company in 2003. I knew I could be great at what I do when I would consistently receive "the look" from a bride and groom that said "You nailed it".
You're not a 9 to 5 guy .. How do you keep things cool and fresh?
I'm one of the regular DJ's at Disney's Mad T Party...During the week I meet with potential clients, and on the weekends, I get to party with amazing couples. My company typically DJ's for three to six other events per weekend including weddings, corporate events, and non-profit events.
What is the best piece of advice for a newly engaged couple when finding talent?
Make sure to sit down and enjoy the process. Your DJ should take inspiration from YOU and what I love is creating a unique event through music who represents who they are.
What advice would you give to someone starting new in this business?
Know your craft, understand your business well, and make friends with high integrity people in this business.
Where do you get your inspiration?
I receive my inspiration from my clients, the latest and greatest in music, and other event professionals.
How do you keep a balance in the business?
You have to keep in top physical shape to handle the long hours and amount of physical work it takes. Taking one day off per week is essential.
Why do you believe you are on the preferred vendor list at many venues?
I consistently delver high quality service and represent and take care of all of the venues where I work.
What do you do for fun?
I go dancing with my wife and I actually consider work to be fun. Think about it- I am at a great party every night I work.
