  • A year in review (2014)…and it’s not over yet!

    With 2014 about to wrap up, we thought it would be fun to post a few pictures of this year’s events. What a great year complete with DJing court-side, a wonderful Gala (Wings of Hope) to help our struggling youth, vendor appreciation, HOSA 2014, late nights mixing records with DJ Lu-S, many beautiful weddings, and the annual Disney Holiday cast event. Thank you to those who have supported us, recommended us, and partied with us this year! It was a great year! Let’s do it all over again in 2015…only bigger and better!

  • This changes everything!

    Every once in a while, a new piece of DJ equipment is released that really changes the way we interact with music. That is happening right now and we couldn’t be more excited! This controller, the Numark NV, comes out in October and we have it on pre-order!!! The controller itself allows DJs to focus more on the music and crowd and less on the computer screen. With onboard HD color screens and buttons/knobs for just about anything, this is going to change everything. Check it out!

  • Evolution

    PRO Event DJ was established in 2002-2003…but not as PRO Event DJ. Back then we had a different name, one that was intended to provoke a little…We were, and in the background…still are, Provocative Productions, Inc. To many of our long term followers and friends, this will come as no surprise. Our motto was to “Provoke” and stimulate through music and entertainment. While that sat just fine with us, to others it was never so simple. People hear the word provocative and immediately turn it into something it does not have to be. For that reason, we evolved into PRO Event DJ. As with any new identity, we needed a new logo. After two iterations, what you see today is the surviving logo that you can plan on seeing for a long time. So after a decade in business, a name change, and a new identity, we were still the same three guys…friends (and family by now) running the business. We intentionally built this business with the idea that we would keep it small to control quality and build the brand of PRO Event DJ. You cannot do that when you hire 10 DJs who are all different. We had a long term goal of someday expanding the talent…in other words, hiring more DJs. In a town where almost everyone is a DJ, finding someone who is the right fit and carries the same passion that we do is not easy. Actually, when you grow a business over a decade, it’s almost impossible to let someone in…Well, after years and dedication, the time has finally come and we do have a new DJ! That makes 4 and we are ready to take Orlando by storm! Starting Tuesday, December 17th, 2013, the cast members of Disney’s Swan and Dolphin resorts will experience an event to go down in history! All four of us will be there making sure that the light show is spectacular and the dance floor packed! We have been hard at work in the studio preparing for the event…

    One of these images is of Justin, co-founder of PRO Event DJ and the other is our 4th! Can you tell who is who?

    More images to come next week!

  • BASE Camp 2013 Winter Formal

    This weekend, we were honored to be part of the BASE Camp Winter Formal and performed as part of our, “Play it Forward” campaign to help children facing unimaginable circumstances. These kids are some of the most amazing people you will ever meet. Simply put, they are warriors! Fighting cancer and other life threatening illness is incredibly difficult, but with the help of BASE Camp, World Marriott and other vendors, they had their own prom…And they had fun! We had fun.  😮

    One of the most touching moments of the night was when one of the kids joined us on stage…

  • A new website is born!

    It is with great enthusiasm that we can finally announce some very exciting news…As the title suggests, we have a new website! It’s bigger, smarter, richer in content, and it allows us to create new content easily. In other words, we can blog!  That means all music and industry related topics are fair game. We’ll talk a bit about music, news, technology, playlists, and do some live blogging from some of our most exciting events! Our website has had several makeovers over the years (decade), but none of them have been as significant as this. In fact, we also have a mobile version of the site that looks completely different on mobile devices, but still delivers the same content in a user-friendly way. Just like our performances, everything we do including web design is client-focused! So, after 11 years, we remain committed to our clients more than ever and without further ado, here it is…Enjoy!

  • Featured on PRO Mobile DJ

    Featured on PRO Mobile DJ – By Stacy Semon:

    In 2002, Matt Rothlein, Justin Martin, and Mark Bearss (who were then recreational DJs), paired up to combine their ideas, equipment and creativity to give birth to Orlando, Florida-based, PRO Event DJ. They believed that as a new company in a well-established marketplace, PRO Event DJ needed to be different from their local competitors, and that image would be critically important. The guys were confident in their raw talent, but they also knew that to rise above the rest, they would have to be both polished and cutting-edge in their business approach.

    During their first years in business, the trio focused on developing a standard methodology to deliver exceptional service while relentlessly working to master the art of DJing. They were able to book diversified events ranging from small school parties and birthday celebrations, to large weddings and corporate events. As the business model matured, so did their scalability. As a result, they have proven to be a force to be reckoned with in their marketplace.

    The company has twice been invited to entertain thousands of students during the National HOSA (Health Occupations Students of America) Leadership conference held at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort. PRO Event DJ also provided DJ and MC services for a Kentucky Derby event – complete with announcing the winners of the race! One of the ways they differentiate themselves is by providing personalized remixes from songs chosen by the bride and groom for wedding receptions.

    In 2011, the company also launched the “Play it Forward” campaign by pairing up with the American Childhood Cancer Organization and the Florida Hospital for Children to provide no-cost entertainment services. I asked Matt what the thought was behind coming up with the company’s charitable campaign: Having the chance to make a difference in the lives of children has been the most rewarding experience throughout our company’s history. Quite honestly, they have also been some of our favorite events!”

    It appears that no event is too big, too small, or too different for PRO Event DJ. Personally, I have never been the MC or DJ at a wedding where there was a knighting ceremony for the groom, but these talented young entrepreneurs have!
