We had the good fortune of connecting with DJ Pasha Gonzalez and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi DJ Pasha, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
My thought process in starting my own business was absolutely falling in love with the interaction and happiness I could bring to a couple or client. After working for many planners, venues, and companies I quickly realized how much the DJ and Emcee performer gets overlooked. Overlooked meaning everything from respecting a performers skill in music and mixing, very low pay, to not giving the performer essential credit per level of experience instead thinking how cheap another DJ can be or how much profit you can make off of another DJ with much less experience or credentials. This does not help the couple or client in anyway- doesn’t every booking deserve the best?! I wanted to bring to light just how important a director, sound engineer, voice and face of the event can truly be. I wanted to create a company that gives every client a personal touch with great personality that listens and cares about YOU and YOUR wishes not what this company or planner does at every other wedding and has the nerve to tell you- you MUST do it this way…NO I wanted to make a change and show just how important a performer is from Start to Finish. I wanted to be different, even if it meant leaving unappreciated bookers behind. My talent, energy, knowledge, and custom approach sells itself and draws clients in. It was journey I began on my own, one wedding, one event, one client at a time. We make each event as special and unique as our clients.. Not one Love Story is the same, and I get to play the story teller. Starting my own business was not easy, but I feel rich with every compliment, smile, review, and new friendships that will last a lifetime. We are celebrating 20 Years of Custom Service from our talented performers, planning and design team, photo booths, dancers, models, and our new clothing line- whatever you wish DJ Pasha Entertainment Inc. will take the BEST care of you!
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
What sets us part is our undivided care for our clients. Whether you are interested in our services or have booked with us you will get 1000% attention start to finish. I am proud to say we have earned the
Experience and Knowledge and that you cannot buy. For over 20 years we have and will continue to learn and get even better for our clients. In this industry you have to be willing to learn, change, and adjust but very few do. Most don’t even regularly work in the field…I ask do you want a Doctor that specializes in heart transplants daily, monthly, yearly or a Doctor that does heart transplants twice a year? Weddings are the biggest day in a couple’s life and should only be handled with care by a true professional. To be out in the field, setting up, tearing down, meeting, performing, interacting makes us a stronger company. We know our value by earning it. We get to know our clients and everything involved in their special day. Nothing is easy, and no book, YouTube, or chat room can teach what you need to learn and understand- ONLY by doing it. Not even a pandemic can stop us from making dreams come true. World, everything at DJ Pasha Entertainment Inc is custom. Your Vision brought to life, creating Forever Memories.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Honestly, life on the road makes you really appreciate your home. If my best friend was visiting I would bbq, cook, make drinks, sing, dance, and swim all week. Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
All Credit and Support goes to my Parents. From a young age they enjoyed watching me play piano by heart and blessed every family occasion with music. I was raised with every kind of music you can imagine. Roots and influences of music go all the way back to the 1920’s. Both my parents supported my dreams to become a recording engineer and DJ/Performer. I always got a warm hug from my Mom or a swift kick in the butt from my Pop reminding me to never give up. Playing an instrument, studying music, endless nights of recording was all allowed due to my Parents hard work, struggles, and love. My strong work ethic comes from my upbringing. And with a large family of artists we all get to work together and shine.
