What makes a good DJ?
At Golden Productions it is a combination of experience, proper DJ selection, training, top notch equipment and musical collections, and a “West Coast” style of professional DJ services and entertainment. That last one may raise a few eyebrows.
What is “West Coast” style? To answer that we must first talk about the standard DJ. The standard, good quality DJ thinks about, amongst other things, the look and sound of their equipment, the size of their collection and the length and price of each gig. Truthfully, all good deejays are concerned with the very same things.
What sets the “West Coast” style apart from the norm? As you might guess, from just from the name, the “West Coast” style DJ has a heavy background in entertainment as well as a vast musical knowledge. But utilizing that entertainment background is a skill set that only the well trained can accomplish. Deejays that fancy themselves entertainers have a tendency to become “The Show.”
In certain cases, like theme parties, private parties and the like, this can be a very good thing. But when it comes to large scale events such as Weddings, Corporate Events, Bar & Bat Mitzvahs, and other occasions “smart” hosting is required.
The well trained “West Coast” DJ has the skill to use entertainment to keep the focus on the guest(s) of honor and not on themselves. Entertaining the event guests and having them concentrate more on those being honored at the affair and not on the host is something that only the proper training can accomplish.
About Golden Productions
Golden Productions was found in 1988 on the principal of high quality entertainment and event enjoyment, not just on playing music and collecting a paycheck. We pride ourselves on being one of the elite DJ services in the area while maintaining a reasonable pricing structure so that high quality entertainment is within the reach of everybody.
Our principal owner, Neil Goldberg, spent 18 years as a stage performer prior to ever getting behind a rig. Each year he and some of his DJ’s travel out west to learn more about the entertainment value that only “West Coast” style can offer.
Each and every DJ in the Golden Productions stable are taught these skills and expected to utilize them to make our clients the most satisfied in the Baltimore/Washington corridor. Our DJ’s range from young stallions with total command of modern music and total respect of the younger audiences (middle school, high school and college age) to deejays with decades of experience who can liven an event for music lovers from the ‘40s to current chart hits.
We employ techniques using music, voice-overs and videos that most East Coast DJ’s have never even been introduced to, and this preparation, attention to the client’s desires and the “West Coast” mindset makes Golden Productions deejays some of the most sought after in the area.
