10 Questions with Randy Hendrix

1. Introduction: What's your story?

I had wanted to be a DJ ever since I saw Dick Clark Back in the day! When I was little my Mom and Dad got me a Mr. Microphone and I would sit in my room late at night practicing talking up songs and just having fun. I started when I was a kid in 6th grade DJing Junior high dances with My Band Director, Ric Campero, and my buddy Glenn Saunders. I mowed lots of lawns and eventually bought my first DJ system, and so, a Mobile DJ business was born. Long story short, I played anywhere that would let me in high school. I got out of high school, went to college, and got in to radio broadcasting also! I eventually went in to Radio and all the while DJing on the weekends in Clubs, and Middle schools and high schools. Then, got into weddings and loved it!! I have been on the air somewhere in Modesto, Fresno, Stockton, Visalia, Tulare area in some form the last 28 years! I love music, I love people, and Love to Party with a brand new Bride and Groom , be it a wedding , or A school Dance, Anniversary, birthday party , 70's or 80's themed party you name it!!, they are all so much fun!!And here I am over 30 years later and still having a great time at Events! I take your event seriously and will do my best to make it as close to your dream as possible. I hope we can help you with your BIG day!! Take a look around the website!!" Do what you love and you won't work a day!!"
