Jeff Hudson, CSEP is the owner and senior DJ at Spacecraft Entertainment and has a vast 20 years of experience in the entertainment and event industries. Jeff studied classical and jazz music in college, played trombone and bass in a number of groups including The Spazmatics and on cruise ships. In 2009 he fell in love with DJing and formed Spacecraft Entertainment in Austin, TX.
The styles of music that DJ Jeff spins depends entirely upon the event and client. His personal taste in music is very diverse which is one reason he loves DJing. Every event asks for different styles and keeps his job fun! He always mixes live, beat mixes for dancing, and scratches sparingly when DJing Hip Hop. As the master of ceremonies, he makes very clear, professional announcements. DJ Jeff does not get on the mic more than needed, try to “pump up the crowd,” or tell jokes.
Jeff is very active in the International Live Events Association (ILEA) Austin chapter. He is currently on the Communications Committee and one of only two DJs in the world designated a Certified Special Event Professional (CSEP).
What is your entertainment background?
I started off as a classical and jazz musician, playing trombone and upright bass in various ensembles, and studied music composition in college. I then toured the world working on cruise ships playing electric bass in show bands. Since 2004 I have been cast as bass player/nerd “Geoffrey” for The Spazmatics, an 80s tribute show of Perfect World Entertainment. I began DJing in 2009 and quickly feel in love with this new avenue for sharing music with people.
What is your DJ/musical style?
The styles of music that I spin at a given event depends entirely upon the client who hires me. My personal taste in music is very diverse which is one reason I love DJing. Every wedding, party, and club asks for different style(s) of music and keeps my job fun! As far as my technical DJ style goes, I use Technics 1200 turntables, a TTM57sl or Pioneer DJM800 mixer, Serato Scratch Live software, beat mix whenever possible spinning dance music, and scratch sparingly when DJing Hip Hop.
What is your MC style?
I make very clear and professional announcements. I do not get on the mic more than needed and don’t try to “pump up the crowd.” I like to let the music set the mood.
