Frequently Asked Questions
What makes Verducci Event Productions DJ’s unique? How are they different from DJ’s you might hire elsewhere?
Every one of our DJs is an individual creative artist. No two performances — even by the same DJ — are the same. Each one is tailored specifically to meet your special and unique needs. Our DJ’s work independently — they practice their craft and have full autonomy and use their absolute best judgment and their individual artistic creativity to produce a “one-of-a-kind” performance, each and every time. Our DJ’s have the experience, skill and talent to create special moments — and adapting their performance to the mood of the moment while your event is unfolding in real time — always striving to provide you with lasting memories. You will interview and select a DJ of your choice, and then the two of you will work one-on-one from start to finish on your special event. As a result of the personal connection you will have with your DJ, they will know and care about your event just as much as you do. This personal touch really sets us apart from other companies and helps ensure a special rapport between you and your chosen DJ.
