Local DJ, Tom Pluister of Pluister Entertainment, Inc., shares the value of having a professional wedding DJ. Thank you for taking time to share your input, Tom!
Most couples know the value of a Professional DJ for their wedding and most know that professional services come at a price. People are looking for value in everything they buy, from a loaf of bread to a new car. The value of a Professional Disc Jockey on your wedding day can be defined in physical terms like: He met with you to discuss your needs, he showed up on time, dressed properly, his equipment worked and sounded good, announcements and introductions were clear, crisp and professional. Value can also be defined in terms not so physical like: He treated you like he would have treated his own daughter or son, he listened to your desires and delivered the perfect mix of songs, he helped to create lasting memories.

Recent studies show that music is a trigger for memories. When you hear a song it often reminds you of an important moment in your life. Professional DJ’s know their role in creating memorable moments, and here’s a secret: They spend a lot of time and energy planning and preparing for those moments. A Professional Disc Jockey’s value can be found in the memories of the families and friends of the couples that he has served.

I know I’m talking in terms of DJ’s being guys by writing “He”. I mean no disrespect. My daughter, DJ*Sunshine* is one of the best Professional Disc Jockeys anyone could ask for. She’s smart, attentive, beautiful and very talented. She has innovated the coolest mixes and song transitions for wedding receptions. She loves serving Brides, Grooms and their families.

A Little About Me
My name is Tom Pluister and I manage the daily operations at Pluister Entertainment, Inc. I have been a professional Disc Jockey for more than 30 years. I got my start in the radio business and soon discovered that I loved to entertain in person more than I enjoyed being on the on-air. I’ve learned that my role as your Wedding Disc Jockey is very important to a successful reception and I take my job very seriously. Each couple that I serve is treated like family and I do everything possible to meet their music and stylistic desires. I’ve always put the focus of attention on them, not myself.
