Vendor Chat with Wedding DJ, Justin Reid of Uptown Entertainment

Our Vendor Chat today is with Justin Reid, owner of Uptown Entertainment, a Greenville, SC based custom boutique entertainment company. Let’s get to know a little more about Justin and his company;

How long have you been a DJ?

13 years

What would you say influenced you to choose this profession?

I fell into it honestly. That said, I LOVE working with couples to plan their wedding day soundtrack.
What do you enjoy most about what you do?

Creating a once in a lifetime entertainment experience for a couple on their wedding day is the ultimate. Taking music and ideas that they love and creating through collaboration and experience.
Is there a current wedding reception trend regarding DJing that you are currently really digging?

Hot & Ready Donuts, lol. Well, kinda kidding. We are currently trying to create unique and trendy options for our couples that you won’t find anywhere else.
What’s the biggest mistake you see brides making when it comes to their wedding DJ service?

Hiring a friend, hiring a nightclub only DJ, and hiring someone who does it as a hobby. We spend a lot of time and money on training, research, and tools so our couples have the best experience possible and we specialize in weddings.
What are some questions brides should ask when interviewing Djs?

You can Google a get a bunch of “canned” questions to ask a DJ, but in my opinion there is a bit of an education we provide to our couples when we speak or meet with them. When you hire a professional, not only are they equipped to handle the best, optimum circumstances, but they are also able to make your wedding day special under not so great random circumstances, whatever they may be, that can possibly arise on your wedding day.
What’s the most interesting thing you can remember happening to you on the job?

Any time the Clemson Tiger is in the booth it is sure to be a great time!

You get the last word! Take it away! 🙂
