A Better Approach to Entertainment. Read on to fully understand
all there is to know about our company.
How long has
Action21 Karaoke & DJ Productions
been in business?
Action21 DJ & Karaoke Productions owners are
Patrick Gearhart and Tammi Tiller founded the company in 2002.
Q - What's the difference between a
Disc Jockey (DJ) and a
A disc jockey plays your music. A great DJ
has encyclopedic knowledge of music selections, and can pick the
right song for the right moment to ensure that your dance floor
stays full and every guest gets involved in the fun. Our MCs are
fantastic DJs, some of the best in the business. But an MC does
much more than simply play music. He is also the presentational
leader of your event. From making the grand introductions that
start the event, to leading you and your guests from one stage
of the evening to the next, to interacting with guests on the
dance floor (as much or as little as you desire), your MC will
single-handedly make sure that your event flows smoothly and
everyone has a wonderful time.
Q - Do Action21
Karaoke & DJ Productions DJs get really interactive
with the crowd?
This is entirely up to you. We are fully
capable of infusing your event with energy and enthusiasm,
whether or not they get “hands on” with your guests. You decide
how much or how little you would like your DJ to interact.
Remember, at Action21, a “low key” personality never means a low
will be our DJ?
The good thing with Action21 is you will not
only get a DJ who has advanced training and certifications in
the DJ industry but he is also one of the owners.
Q - Do you provide
Yes! We carry back-up music and equipment
with us at all times. In addition, we always have one or two DJs
"on-call." In the rare case of an emergency, a professional DJ
with a full sound system and a complete music library is only a
phone call away. And you never need to worry about ending up
with a generic presentation. We keep your personal music choices
and reception details digitally stored so that they can
instantly be sent to the on-call DJ. Bottom line: we make sure
your show will always go on, no matter what.
