Meet Ben… A DJ Who Loves Music
Hi Everyone! My name is Ben, and I am a Cutting Edge Entertainment DJ. Although I’ve been working at Cutting Edge since 2008 (and enjoyed every single moment), I only began working as an MC/DJ on my own events in 2012. In the years prior to that, I worked as a DJ assistant on countless weddings, bar mitzvahs and parties over the years – which I still do to keep my DJ skills sharp and honed. In all that time, I’ve seen a lot of interesting things, from famous people, to flash mobs, to outrageous outfits, no event is boring. It’s by far the most fun job I’ve ever had… And the fact that I love music probably has a lot to do with it.
I first got into music at a very young age, and started playing my first instrument (the violin) at the age of four. I went on to add percussion, trombone, and guitar to my musical repertoire by the time I was in high school. In my freshman year of high school, I loved the idea of being able to have a job that allowed me to earn money while working with music, and looked to the company who helped make my bar mitzvah great, Cutting Edge Entertainment.
Yes, I said my Bar Mitzvah.
I have spent all of my teenage and adult life expanding my musical understanding and knowledge, and working as a DJ for Cutting Edge has allowed me to expand even further. In my career as a DJ I’ve not only built onto my musical abilities, but have expanded my appreciation for different genres of music. Where I once listened to one or two genres (like most teen and pre-teen people), I now am fluent and familiar with so many diverse styles, all of which I listen to and enjoy. Of course, there is a lot more to the job than music, but the music is my favorite part by far.
Here at Cutting Edge, we do everything in our power to ensure that each guest at the event have the best time imaginable. This takes lots of pre-planning and communication, and to be honest, I had no idea how much until I started running my own events. It’s actually lots of fun working with folks to make their parties a success, and, as you probably guessed, I love helping them pick just the right mix of music and achieve their vision of their dream event, wedding, mitzvah, sweet 16 or otherwise.
Thank you for taking the time to read a bit about me, and, if you’re looking for a DJ who not only knows his stuff, but loves what he does, I hope you’ll ask for me and allow me to help you achieve the party of your dreams.
