DJ Mitch
From 1999, starting out with a background in radio, producing and presenting shows for 3 1/2 years
including my own dance music show running for 3 years, also during that time assistant to local DJ's
then completing the DMC DJ Course in Melbourne. My experience in the DJ/Radio scene with a
wide variety of parties and functions specialising in weddings with a wide experience, presentation
and knowledge of the best music for different crowds is essential for everyone's night to be an
occasion they will all enjoy. Extras such as larger lighting packages are available including
a large range of laser lighting with smoke machines or for the more subdued background lighting or
no lighting this can also be easily catered for. Thousands of music tracks are always on hand for
requests on the night & high quality cordless microphones are always available
for any presentations and announcements. Professional, punctual and reliable with as much
time needed with you included to organise your favourite music for your function
is a factor why people throughout Geelong and surrounding areas choose me for their
special occasion. Particularly for wedding receptions, my equipment setup looks and sounds
professional and will not look out of place compared to some party DJ's with big ugly setups
and corded microphones, the effort for your wedding reception layout should look professional in
every way and the DJ setup should also live up to those same standards.
Many optional extras are available particularly for weddings including comprehensive professional
video packages. A major factor is that I am a fulltime DJ which means that bookings can be made
for anytime day or night for any day and I can be quickly and easily contacted at anytime for any questions
and I have my email and Facebook on each day for your enquiries and bookings and my
mobile phone is never turned off (whilst DJing leave a message).
Comprehensive arrangement of music for weddings and other functions is included with all
packages. MCing for weddings is also included if required. Once you have your quote there are
no hidden extra charges, obviously any overtime is at the prices included clearly in the packages.
If you don't have full confirmation of the exact times or which package
you will be choosing you can still make your booking with the deposit to confirm your booking
then sometime later you can contact me with those other details. Any extras you would like for
your function that you don't see on this website then give me a call and I'll arrange a
reasonable quote for your function.
No hidden charges, no unwanted surprises.
