(which other DJ's in the area are trying to copy)
Hi there & thanks for "clicking" by. I'm Jack Helbig (sorry if you were expecting a lame "DJ name" like so many DJ's use). If my name sounds familiar, that's because you probably hear me each weekday morning as I'm an on-air radio personality/producer (in addition to possessing radio programming experience as well). I've actually been an on-air personality in Northeast Ohio for over two decades at a number of other stations during that time.
I have three simple goals: Be different, be consistent and be one of the best! I pride myself in being the premier professional sole proprietor event & wedding professional DJ in the area, along with offering a distinctive brand & signature style that really separates my brand of service from the majority of DJ's/DJ services in the area. If you're looking for "just another" DJ or one that's going to "hand you off" to another DJ, or "go through the motions", I am NOT any of those. My overall service is truly distinct.
My exclusive brand of "Non-Cheesy, Non-Obnoxious" Boutique DJ entertainment encompasses much more than just the music. It's my overall approach, philosophy & attitude towards wedding & event DJ entertainment.
It's combined with a distinctive boutique-style approach to designing each event, and without resorting to the typical "hype", overbearing DJ that is berating or shaming your guests to "get on the dance floor", outdated techniques, blow-up props and costumes, cheesy interactions and games, preset playlists and resorting to line dances to get your party started.
If I can brag for a moment -- this is another reason why I pride myself in standing out from most-other DJs & DJ companies in the area.
I'm the ONLY sole proprietor professional DJ in the Northeast Ohio region (Cleveland, Akron, Canton, Youngstown), Pittsburgh market and Mid-Ohio who has been awarded these industry awards as stated.
Why is this significant? Because all of the other winners of these awards have been companies that rely on a staff of DJ's & support staff.
As a sole proprietor, I am a staff of one.
No sales staff.
No booking manager.
No staff of DJ's that are assigned to events.
I do it all!
And, I'm extremely proud of that. It's further indication of my utmost dedication I give to each and every one of my clients, along with the very-high quality service I provide as well.
A UNIQUE BOUTIQUE, ULTRA-PERSONALIZED APPROACH
NOT A "BIG BOX"-TYPE DJ SERVICE OR ENTERTAINMENT GROUP
In case you haven't noticed, everyone & their relatives seems to be a "DJ" nowadays (thanks to technology). It's actually one of the most-saturated services in the area (thanks to technology). The market is inundated with "DJ's", along with 'big box'-type DJ services; service whose business model essentially is similar to that of a big box store.
These are DJ companies, or agencies, or entertainment groups that simply book as many events as possible per day & outsource them to whatever DJ they can find/is available (I've worked for these types of companies, so I know first-hand how a majority of them operate).
Some of them will "match" you with a DJ, like you're being matched on a dating site/app (but they're doing the "swiping" left or right -- not you!). There's nothing wrong with that type of business model.
That is IF that's the type of 'service' you're looking for while and being treated as "just another gig" & matched like you're on Tinder or Bumble.
That's a type of service I have NEVER chosen to provide. There are a few other secrets of these multi-DJ companies as well!
DISTINCTIVE. VISIONARY. PASSIONATE.
Whether it's a wedding, corporate event or an adult party, my core values, philosophy, approach and attitude remain consistent.
In addition, my business model is different than most of my professional counterparts. I am NOT a DJ 'agency' or 'company' that simply book events & then hand your event off to a lower-tiered DJ (whom you might not get to talk to or meet until shortly before your event. At that point, it'll be too late if you realize they aren't a good fit). Your event is "just another gig" to them. You essentially get "lost in the shuffle."
As a "single" professional DJ/MC, I do not employ or contract any event to another DJ. I'm here for my clients throughout the entire planning process. They know I'm just a phone call or email away.
Your event is treated as YOUR event, with YOUR vision & NOT a duplicate of what others have seen before.
After all, no-two events are the same, and the clients and their guests are all unique as well.
LIFE + COMPANY CELEBRATIONS
I provide the same incredible & exclusive "Non-Cheesy, Non-Obnoxious" Boutique brand of DJ service for many types of adult life celebrations and company events.
From anniversaries, birthdays, reunions, after-parties, holiday events & corporate/company celebrations, you can count on me to bring the same unique approach, philosophy and attitude & boutique DJ influence to your event as I do for weddings.
ADULT BIRTHDAYS & MORE
If you're planning a decade-themed event or a class reunion, you won't find another DJ in the area that offers the unique experience in this aspect -- along with an exclusive music video service -- that will make your "way-back" event unlike anything your guests have experienced before.
Since each and every event is different, I do not offer a "one-price-fits-all". Just reach out to me to get your personalized quote (all I'll need to get is some pertinent information)!
MODERN. UNOBTRUSIVE. STRESS-FREE. RELAXED. FUN!
ELEVATED EVENT + WEDDING DJ ENTERTAINMENT
RE-INVENTING WEDDING & EVENT DJ ENTERTAINMENT
At one point in time, someone thought a DJ playing games, constantly talking on the mic, bringing props and inflatables and essentially making themselves the center of attention (or, to quote Ludacris "At a fool"!) at someone else's wedding or event while playing the same music was a great idea. Sadly, that caught on and many still do that today. Much to the chagrin of the industry and today's couples.
You'll NEVER hear me "tell" people they "need to be on the dance floor", or to "put their hands in the air", or "let me hear you scream" and other ridiculous, cheesy and just-outright-obnoxious (and lame) majority of the DJ's still do.
I am proud to say that I am NOT part of that group of "many" DJ's who are still stuck in that obnoxious and dated mindset. Which is one, of many factors, that truly make the type of DJ service I offer & provide unlike most-others in the area (and I can prove it!). Wedding and Event DJ entertainment shouldn't be cheesy or obnoxious or seeming like a "chore" demanding you do all kinds of things you don't want to do (like "get on the dance floor"). Nor, should you be forced to do something at your wedding "just because" many DJ's consider it 'tradition'.
This is where my distinctive approach, philosophy and (somewhat unconventional) attitude towards DJ entertainment for weddings and events come into play. Hence, my "re-inventing" DJ entertainment to what it should be and what's long-been missing. While a majority of events I do every year are weddings (and my website leans more towards weddings -- as there are there are tons of them every year -- I do DJ/MC a wide variety of non-wedding adult events every years as well.
One of the benchmarks of my professional service is a focus on ultra-personalized service
and enhancing the guest experience (and, in essence, enhancing the event).
For events like college formals, corporate events, class reunions/decade-themed events, my exclusive
"Social Media Screen" and also music video projection is included with most offerings.
EXCLUSIVE SOCIAL MEDIA SCREEN
The "Social Media Screen" -- which is live & interactive -- has really enhanced events from weddings to corporate events because guests can capture all of the moments of the night in pictures and then either text them or use Twitter. All of those images and messages will then project all night long on a screen(s). Whether they're snapping pictures of dancing with friends, hanging out at their table or wherever, guests at events have loved getting more involved with this feature that I include.
MUSIC VIDEO PROJECTION (& IN HD!)
This truly enhances events like class reunions/decade-themed events. Actual music videos projected on a screen.
Guests of the event are further entertained by dancing and socializing while the actual music video of the song is played. Be reminded of those fashions and hairstyles of the decades-gone by.
I also offer a slideshow projection as well. It can even be produced with a soundtrack.
Uplighting is one of the most cost effective ways to elegantly decorate your wedding or event with custom colors. Uplights can really make your room "pop" with color. I also offer gobo lighting ("Name in Lights") with a wide variety of patterns -- from your name or initials and with or without your date -- available to choose from.
SPECIALTY LIGHTING PRICING STARTS AT $115.00
