Dan grew up in upstate New York and graduated from the State University of New York at Oneonta with a bachelor's degree in Anthropology. During his years in New York he spent a lot of time attending music lessons, and performing onstage in musicals and dance shows. Daniel's fun-loving spirit and humorous yet professional disposition, mixed with his diverse musical tastes help him to read the crowd and play the music needed to get your party started and keep it going. "I am convinced that there are great songs in every genre - except maybe for muzak (that old cheesy grocery store music!) Glad we don't hear that too much anymore!" - Daniel
One of Dan's most memorable and unique experiences as a wedding DJ-- he played music at a wedding for a group of actors and directors: "Every time I played a show tune the crowd sang and danced in unison as if they had rehearsed the choreography countless times before; which, now that I think about it, they probably had. Either way it was truly wondrous to behold-- and pretty cool! We certainly play the hits, old and new, but no matter the type of music you love, we pay careful attention to what YOU want for your wedding celebration."
Daniel was recently a guest at a wedding that had a band instead of a DJ. Although the band played REALLY well, they didn't seem to have a good sense of how to control the flow of a wedding. The reception started at 6 pm and the band didn't start playing good dancing music until about 9 p.m. (after the reception was more than half-way over.) Dan shares some thoughts about that party: "Please don't get me wrong, I LOVE a great band! But lots of folks just wanted to dance and the band had us waiting too long , not to mention the fact that they never drew attention to the cake cutting, nor did they introduce the bride and groom. Everyone had a good time, and the band really rocked once they found their stride, but I think they overlooked some important details. If I had been the DJ for this reception, I definitely would not have forgotten about the bride and groom, I would have engaged the crowd more, and gotten the party started earlier."
Daniel loves being involved in the entertainment industry. "I really come alive when I get people singing, dancing, and celebrating life and love. DJ'ing with Complete has allowed me to make this my job. Awesome right!?"
