Keeping it fresh, fun and entertaining, is how Ron sums up a night of DJ'ing. After 20 years of DJ'ing in clubs, corporate events and weddings, Ron knows it is important to remember that the client always comes first. Whenever hosting/DJ'ing an event, Ron ensures that he speaks with the client to become aware of their needs for the night.
In Ron's eyes, the Dj is simply an extension of the vision of the client, and it is his personal goal to ensure at the end of the night the client is smiling and satisfied. "A handshake at the end of the night with a smiling client always sends me home knowing that I accomplished what I was asked", says Ron. Ron's musical taste is very ecliptic and he has you fully covered. In his time of DJ'ing in the clubs (which is still on going under the name Dj Griz), Ron has hosted nights of Top 40, Alternative/New Rock, RB & Hip Hop, and Disco. When your night calls for it all, Ron can put together a Party Mix of all musical tastes that will have your clients/guests on their feet dancing the night away.
The one thing that sets Ron apart from many other Dj's is his music case which is filled with surprises. Not only is the case packed with the hits that you have come to know and love in all styles of music, but it is also loaded with very rare remix gems that will have your crowd screaming for more.

And, in order to keep the crowd moving, never take your eye off them, which means know your music well so that you're watching the crowd and not looking down at your work.
