10 Questions with Jason Drilling

1. Introduction: What's your story?

Hello - I am Jason Drilling, owner and lead wedding DJ/Emcee for TNT DJ Fresno. I began my DJ career back in 2006. I was always the guy at the party with an IPOD that had great music on it and made the party/BBQ etc...a better time. I seemed to always know what to play and when to play it. That sort of lead me to becoming a DJ. As a company. we mostly do weddings from 50 to 350 people comfortably. As the owner, I personally do all the weddings for the company. It is a stressful time for brides & grooms and I need to use my knowledge to help ease their anxiety. I never felt the need to do videos of my work as I let my reviews speak for themselves. It is not about "my style" as it is more about "your expectations". I ask a lot of questions which allows me to do the best job I can for you. I hope we get a chance to work together!

2. What's your experience as a wedding DJ? How many weddings have you done?

I have owned TNT DJ Fresno since January 2017, but TNT has been around since 1989. I have personally done 100's of weddings in my career.

3. How far in advance do couples need to book your services?

I have couples booking 2 years out at this point. It seems that there are a lot of "bedroom DJ's" that are really good DJ's, but you must be able to run a wedding as well. Not just play music.

4. What's your rate? What does that include?

Rates vary from event to event based on multiple factors, but generally start at $1,195.

5. Are you available to travel if needed?

I do travel to the central coast, local mountain communities, up north & down south.

6. How would you describe your style?

Professional, but with a light human touch.

7. What's your backup plan if there's an equipment malfunction? Do you bring backup equipment?

I do bring back up computers and run all powered speakers. If the building were to lose ALL power and there was no generator, that would be the only way we would not be able to get sound out.

8. What's your sick day policy?

I have never missed a wedding in 15 years.

9. How do you motivate a shy crowd to dance? What do you do to motivate the crowd if nobody is dancing?

Crowds can be finicky at times. A 50 person wedding might not dance much and that is ok. Some weddings are about family reconnecting. Play some great music and let people do their thing.

10. What is your cancellation and/or refund policy?

Retainers/deposits are non-refundable. I will move those to new dates as needed.
