As Owner DJ Buddy can tell you, there's a lot more to being a DJ then merely playing records. "Being a great DJ is knowledge, love of craft, experience, attention to nuance, and innate instinct," he explains.
"I pride myself on being able to accurately read a room (what people want to hear, what they'll dance to), quickly picking up on cues, and being able to throw in musical perks, such as playing 'Born to be Wild' when it's mentioned the father of the bride loves motorcycles, or cuing up 'Sexy and I Know It' when it's revealed the best man is excessively fond of the gym."
Bud Fleisher ("DJ Buddy") owns and operates Let's Party Entertainment, along with his wife, Katrina Margell-Fleisher, entertaining guests for over 25 years in South Florida. Their company has been providing premier DJ services for weddings, birthday parties, mitzvahs, corporate events, and more. They are fully licensed and insured, use only high-end, quality sound systems, and always arrive on-time for an event.
Although the core of their music library for an average event ranges from the 1940s through the present, DJ Buddy says there's no limitation to the type of music a client needs. "We have all varieties and decades of music in our library from the oldest oldies to the most current Top 40," he says. "If we don't have a requested song, we can almost always download it instantly. We are limited only by the vastness of the Internet."
Let's Party Entertainment can also provide services that can upgrade an event and take a venue from so-so to spectacular. This includes special lighting for the dance floor, uplighting (lighting that radiates up from the floor), photography and/or videography services, karaoke machines, slide shows, and even a photo booth. Being able to deliver these perks saves their clients time and money when hiring them from separate businesses. They can also recommend respected event venues in the Southern Florida area, having built up trusted relationships with the hospitality industry for nearly three decades.
Katrina Margell Fleisher is membership chair of the National Association of Wedding Professionals, and Bud also serves on the NAWP board and is independently ranked in the "Top 18" DJs in Florida. When it comes to standing out from other DJ companies and winning clients for repeat business, his philosophy is simple.
"The simple answer is: we listen to our clients," he says. "What makes us unique is YOU. We are here to help you create your day; not perform our show. It has been my life-long honor to be there for the celebrations in peoples' lives. Using music, rhythm, and my voice, I can direct people to a better place and make ordinary people feel extraordinary. This business has enabled me to be self-employed for most of my adult life. My clients have taken care of me, and I am grateful to take care of them."
