There's a PSA that runs on the NBC family channels that goes, "The more you know..." Well, the more you know, the better equipped you become to make life choices, including who you hire as your next DJ!
What is mynewdj by Hands On Music, LLC
Hands On Music, LLC is a media and entertainment company based out of Albany, OR that focuses on mobile Entertainment. Aaron Harris and Kelsey Harris are co-owners of the company and they have been in business since 2016. mynewdj (yes, all lowercase) is our brand that identifies the mobile DJ services that we provide for our customers.
Why mobile Entertainment?
We emphasize the idea of mobile entertainment because we are literally bringing the entertainment wherever our Guests are. Our goal is to bring the fun and excitment of "big production" into smaller locations that were not necessarily designed for entertainment. For example, most outdoor weddings in Oregon and Washington are litterally on a farm or plot of land with a giant open barn. Sometimes we are performing in a school common area or gym. Occassionaly, we find outselves in someone's residential house or driveway trying to turn the space from ordinary to extraordinary. Most of the venues that we perform in are plain with no special lighting or technology. We bring in our equipment and do what we can to turn that space into something that helps people have a unique experience.
What makes mynewdj by Hands On Music, LLC standout from the local industry?
The most straightforward answer to this question is: Aaron (aka DJ Harris). Aaron has an ambitious imagination and he always brings his creative vision to each event he books. Additionally, he is in it for the fun of it all and he understands that providing reasonable pricing structures for his customers is a priority. Another big difference that you will notice between mynewdj by Hands On Music, LLC and other DJ companies is our price. Most of our prices are under $1000 wherase many other companies start at or above $1000.
Why are your prices so low?
Our prices are low because our expenses are low. We intentionally seek out cost-saving business practices so that we can maintain high profit margins and low costs. For example, we design our own website, maintain our own accounting, and use our marketing budget wisely. Some people say that knowledge is power, but learning is more powerful than knowledge. We invest money and time into learning - not always how to build a better mouse trap, but how to build a mouse trap. At this point, we are no longer learning how to build a better mosue trap because we don't want a mouse trap. Instead, we want to build a mouse haven. In other words, the industry seems to be doing it wrong trying to "trap" customers into a price structure. We are not trying to trap anyone because we want our customers to agree that our price and perceived service quality are equally matched.
Who are your competitors?
From our perspective, we do not really have competitors. Instead, we have neighbors. There are many great DJ companies providing mobile entertainment service in Oregon and Washington. Many of these companies may try to claim they are the best, and that is good for them. However, we don't have time to worry about who is the best. You can view some of our neighbors on vendor directories like Wedding Wire and Google.
