My name is Adrian Cavlan. I am a Disc Jockey, Master Of Ceremonies, and the proud 1/2 owner (along with my partner King Raffi of one of the best Mobile DJ and Videography companies you will find: Sound In Motion DJs & Video.
I’ll try to show you all a little bit about what my world as a professional DJ and MC is like. Man, do I ever love it, and I hope you will too : )
It all starts when I get my new camera, a Canon S5IS which can record good quality video too. This ought to be fun!
This is the technical side of my tool kit: I designed it, spec’d it, built it and (ohhhhh myyyy…) paid for it. It is unique: there is not another like it in the world to my knowledge. It is built on the idea that high-quality mp3 files are a great way to manage a very large and diverse music library, but hand controlling the mixing aspect makes for the best possible mixes. Thus, this hybrid new-school/old-school approach is the way I work. Best of both worlds, right?
Here is an excerpt from my first post that I feel belongs here so more people can always see it. I think it sums up my feelings about my job very well:
“Have I yet said how much I absolutely LOVE the people I have the good fortune of working with for their weddings?
No? Well, let me say it right here, right now.
Tina and Jim were a joy to be around and just wanted to have a fun, meaningful wedding day and a ripping party at night. I think we managed to hit that!
That is my client right there: I am happiest when I get to have BOTH. Let me make that clear. Because I live for the emotion and connection between people celebrating their love for each other. It gets me high. I was never a drug guy, so it’s not about that – like some weird vicarious high thing or whatever. No, it is truly about this indescribable connection I am privileged to be able to make with people at such an emotionally charged, high-stakes moment in their lives.
I have the best job ever. Ever. End of story. And I enjoy it… every second of it… and appreciate it for all that it is worth.
Man – was that sappy? Maybe. But at least it’s honest : )”
Now, let’s have some fun!
