HOW DJ STEVE GOT STARTED
DJ Steve has over 20 years experience in the industry, starting out as a humble DJ and sound/lighting operations manager for his high school. It was his involvement in coordinating the music and lights for school productions that led him into a career as a DJ.
Steve’s first “real” job was as a DJ at a local skating rink in Brisbane, where his duties involved selecting different music and games to entertain kids and adults. His work at the skating rink gave him valuable knowledge and insight into how to appropriately mix music to a live audience in order to enhance the mood or setting.
ON TO BIGGER AND BRIGHTER THINGS
After mixing at the skating rink for some time, Steve increased his skill-set by deejaying at some of Brisbane biggest nightclubs such as The Caxton Street Hotel, Hogies Nightclub, The Jackass Gingers Sports Bar, The Rum Jungle, Finn MacCools, and Gilhooleys.
Steve loves bringing a disco feel to the celebrations with his top quality lighting and sound gear. The best part for him – seeing the kid’s faces light up when they start dancing to their favourite songs. He also loves sharing his experience and teaching future DJ’s the ropes! For Steve, it’s all about the laughter and the joy that his music gives to kids and parents alike. While DJ Steve is capable of playing at all events (21st, 50th, weddings) his focus is now only to make kids happy with his parties.
Steve’s reputation, passion for adventure and love of meeting new people eventually led him to mobile deejaying weddings and private parties, which combined with the arrival of his 2 kids, saw him naturally move towards kid’s birthday parties.
