MEL HENNESSY started disc jockeying over twenty years ago in a roller rink and at house parties for friends. From there, people were impressed with his work and he started getting requests for his services for weddings, school functions, corporate parties, etc. His reputation as a DJ grew and in 1994 he registered Music City DJ Service. Mel enjoys disc jockeying and chooses to do all the functions himself. His goal is to ensure that every detail is carried out professionally and that his clients and their guests at the end of the event are more than pleased. He ensures that his equipment is up to date and always has back up equipment so that there is never disruption during a function. He prides himself on keeping current with music and is able to meet the clients selection of music whether it be current dance, rock (new and old), country, contemporary, urban, reggae, etc.
Mel’s dedication to being reliable and professionalism and putting 150% into every function he does has proven to be well received in the fact that 95% of his business comes from referrals, some two years in advance.
Mel recognizes that each client’s requirements can be very different and therefore ensures that prior to any function he has a full understanding of his role (e.g. special songs to be played, taking requests, particular types of music the client enjoys or does not enjoy, announcements, games etc).
A good disc jockey is able to read the guests during the function as to what they want to keep them dancing. Mel is proud of the fact that his knowledge of music and experience allows him to be versatile - there is no set music for the night.
Mel will take requests from the audience and work them into his routine; however, do not expect him to play every request. Many requests are simply inappropriate for the mood of the event. An excellent DJ is not a jukebox, but blends requests in with songs that he feels will properly motivate the crowd. The art of DJ'ing is timing and this takes some experience.
If you are looking for a professional, experienced, enthusiastic and well-organized DJ, look no further.
