Q&A With DJ Work

Tell us a little about your background?
I have DJed for a little over 20 years to date which started off as a passion for music and seeing its effects on people. I had the privilege to literally DJ at every nightclub in Nadi during the 90s and moved onto group functions for hotels and tour operators and of course weddings. I am a mechanic by trade so I love to work methodically. This has allowed me to be efficient with my setup to diagnose and fix any problem we may have encountered before a wedding. When I see a problem outside of what I am there for, I try my best to help out with chair sashes, decorations, photographers and anyone who needs help to ensure a successful wedding.

How did you begin your business?
I saw a booming market for weddings in Fiji and in my case the need for professional DJ services. It started off with me on my own until the request came for multiple gigs on one given day. We have built up over the years enough equipment and staff to do 4 weddings in a single day. We work closely with many big resorts here in Fiji as preferred DJs and have built a reputation on word of mouth.

What do you offer Brides & Grooms?
At the ceremony, we offer full sound system to be able to play pre wedding music while guests are waiting, song for aisle walk, song for certificate signing, song for recession and photo taking. We also have portable battery powered speakers for locations that do not have power.

Apart from DJing, we offer a number of services from MCing, area lighting for dining and food stations, up lighting for trees, pillars and walls. We also offer visual equipment such as projectors and screens for those couples wanting to showcase pictures of themselves or a family video of persons not able to make it, in congratulating them.

What do you enjoy the most about what you do?
The compliments (thank you and praises). People coming up and commenting on how clear the sound was, how the sound was just right, not too loud or too low, and the right choice of music. How much everyone enjoyed themselves and had a great time and a great night. Most of all, seeing the smiles on people’s faces having had a good time or experiencing happiness.

Your favourite location for a Fiji Wedding?
For the ceremony, I would have to say, Musket cove. I recently did a wedding there and hands down the best I have seen so far. Apart from the white sandy beach and clear blue sky, it’s something about the atmosphere that makes you want to have your wedding there, or wish you did, being under the shade of a tree is almost magical. Everything was planned so perfectly by the couple who arranged everything through their own team as event planners. For the reception, it would be dependent on the number of people attending since each resort has its own numbers they can cater for. I would have to say the Sheraton since they have a number of options or venues. The food is also awesome.

Your favourite wedding you have played/ DJ’d at so far and why?
I have had the great pleasure of entertaining at so many weddings however the one that I think is my all time favourite is the one I recently did in October of 2016 with a colleague of mine who was the MC. We had so many compliments by the couple, their parents, family and friends. Both sides of the family wanted to come back to Fiji for their other children’s weddings with us as both MC and DJ.

Top tip for Bride & Grooms on their day?
As an entertainer who is there from start to finish, I would like to advise the Bride & Groom that although 4 hours during their reception may seem like a significant amount of time, it will surely pass by very quickly and before you even know it. So I would say, try to follow an event order, keep speeches short and sweet, try and get all the formalities out of the way for more time on the dance floor, make the most of everything. Oh and the cake is not for decoration, make sure your guests try some.

All time favourite Love Song?
As a DJ I have quite a number of songs that I like, how ever the one that always gives me goose bumps when I play or listen to it has to be Sexual healing by Marvin Gaye. There is another version with Shaggy which is upbeat and good to dance to as well.

Your favourite Cocktail or Beer?
When I am not working I am a big fan of Bounty Fiji Rum in any cocktail or Fiji Gold beer.
