10 Questions with Simeon Margarites

1. Introduction: What's your story?

Hi I'm Sim, founder and DJ at BPM Mobile Entertainment. I have been doing weddings for over 10 years. I started Djing when I was around 18 years ago. My passion for music and creating moments started when I was a teen helping out at church events. I was in orchestra and musicals from grade school to high school. It took a lot to get where I am today and I am proud to say that we have built an amazing brand. We help all our bride and grooms coordinate and execute what they invision. At BPM we have honed in to what their audiences enjoy and customize their setlist accordingly while leaving room for requests and improvisation. From consultation to the date of your event we are devoted to making your day special.

5. Are you available to travel if needed?

We are available to travel. We go as far as Ohio, Indiana, Illinois and Northern Michigan.

6. How would you describe your style?

Now this is a tough question. We try our best to cater to all couples. During consultation we interview our couples to make sure we are a good fit. We know the importance of having a connection with our couples to help create the intimate celebration they invision.

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

We always have a backup with us in case something happens.

8. What's your sick day policy?

We work closely with other top djs to make sure that we have you covered. In the 10 years I have been djing weddings we have only had to send a replacement once when we had a death in the family.

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

I am the type of dj that likes to motivate with the music. Being on the microphone too much can annoy some people. While I don't like line dances too much they ALWAYS work. Also we work closely with our couples to make sure we know the music style and age group that will be attending. With that information we design a custom curated playlist to help with these situations.

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

Full refunds minus deposit/retainer unless it is due to a government shutdown (covid) then you receive all monies paid back 90 days after restrictions have been lifted.
