Hi, My name is Craig Nalley and I have been a Mobile DJ for more than ten years.. My specialties are Weddings & Anniversaries, 20-90th Birthday parties, Fund Raisers & Corporate events and special "Dance parties". I'm not a loud talkie D.J., but I can crank up the crowd and make announcements as needed. I have an outgoing personality and love to see people dancing, partying and having a good time. I do take requests at all functions (unless instructed not to) because I have a collection of over 70,000 songs from the 1930's through today.
Weddings require a special touch. I will help you plan events for your special day starting with guest arrival background music, introductions, and special dances all the way through to the last dance. My extensive experience performing at all types of weddings make it possible for me to suggest ideas to make your Special Day even more special!! I will devote whatever time is needed to fine tune your event to exactly how you envision it. You will be able to call, e-mail or fax me anytime to discuss ideas or make last minute changes. I will also work with you on different idea's of the music for the day including, Cocktail, Dinner & Dancing, and give you imput as to what a good order would be(oldest to youngest) and we can talk about the Do Not Play songs. I do not have a set fomat of music I play at every Wedding (Electric Slide, Y.M.C.A or the Chicken Dance, etc.). I read the crowd and play what they are responding to & enjoying. You are hiring a lifetime of musical knowledge, all genres, styles and tastes. This planning we do together coupled with my skill in reading a dance floor will ensure your guests have a party to talk about for years to come.
During the event, if any questionable music is requested, I always check and clear it with you or your designated go to person. Every event I do is a special one and I want to make it that way for you. I make sure my attire is appropriate for each event....from an elegant suit or formal tux for weddings and high end receptions, to shorts and Hawaiian shirts for beach parties, etc...
I played guitar, drums and sang in a band as well as acted and sang in school plays starting at age 12. When I was 15 I was getting into clubs to dance, and with my dance partners, won quite a few contests. I majored in voice in college and translated all of that experience and the skills learned, into doing TV commercials and a few extra parts in movies. I became a member of AFTRA. I found I was pretty good, but not enough so for Hollywood or a recording contract. Parallel to this period I channeled my passions into becoming a mobile entertainer which turned into a full time career over a decade ago. Your wedding, your company holiday party, your gala fund raiser, all require a particular level of talent and sophistication that I developed a talent for early on.
I have a lifetime of music knowledge and I know what gets people up and dancing. I know what "Moves The Soul." So contact your agent to confirm my availability and lock in your date! Thank You for your interest!
