Jeff Brown won a MiN™ Laser by registering his CHAUVET® DJ gear with the CHAUVET® DJ VIP Rewards program. We discovered he has 27 years of experience in the DJ industry and is the owner of All About You Entertainment in Savannah, Georgia — needless to say we decided to feature him in a DJ Profile. Read on and get to know more about him.
1. How did you get started as a DJ?
I bought my first turntables in 1984 and went on to work as an on-air radio personality, program director, music director and even ran my own radio show on two different stations. Throughout the years, I also played at a few nightclubs in New York, Philadelphia, Wilmington and Savannah.
2. Is this a full-time job or something you do on the side?
After leaving radio in 2007, my wife and I started All About You Entertainment full-time. All About You Entertainment consists of five DJs who cater to the Savannah, Georgia and Hilton Head, South Carolina areas and specialize in all types of events including weddings, corporate parties, school functions, reunions and Sweet 16 parties.
3. What fixtures are included in your setup?
We use a variety of effect lights at every event. Our setup includes the following effect lights: Kinta™ X, Swarm™ 4, Radius™, Double Derby™ X and an LED Mushroom™. We are excited about adding the Freedom™ series to our setup very soon.
4. What is your favorite fixture and why?
I personally like the Swarm™ 4 and Intimidator™ Spot LED 250. Swarm™ 4 is nice because it flows on the floor and is not a wild “in your face” effect. These lights offer great effects at great prices.
5. Best advice you can give someone just getting started in the DJ industry?
It is getting harder and harder to cut through the clutter. A lot of competition means you have to offer something the others don’t. Be unique, be yourself, be professional and most of all, be a sponge and soak up as much knowledge as you can from other DJs, peers, musicians and performers. Ask questions and learn — it will make you better.
