Who will be the DJ at my event?
I, Jeff Hudson, DJ the majority of SE’s events. If I am not the one who is available to DJ for you, I will make that clear from the very beginning and will introduce you to a very professional DJ on my staff.
Can I meet our DJ before the event?
Absolutely. Whether your DJ is Jeff Hudson or another member of SE’s staff you will have an opportunity to meet and go over the details of your event with your DJ.
What styles of music can you play at our event?
We have experience DJing at a variety of events and have a vast library of popular music. The style(s) of music you want for your event is the style we will spin. If you request a style of music that we are not very familar with (e.g. Tejano, some styles of world music and electronica) we will simply ask for a song list or CD of specific songs to play.
I am not sure what style or songs I want. Can you help us choose or “read the crowd”?
Yes. We are professional, experienced DJ’s and can help you choose styles, special songs, and read the crowd when no specific direction is given.
Do you take requests?
We are happy to take requests if you want us to.
Can I see how your music planning site works?
Definitely! Our online planning tool makes it easy for you to pick every piece of music that plays (and when it plays). The image to the right is a snippet of how in-depth our system is. Feel free to give it a test run by using our sample login here:

In the event of emergency or illness, do you have backup DJs?
Yes. We have a network of DJs at our disposal. In the event of an emergency we will do everything in our power to find a suitable replacement.
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.
