DJ m-sParks is one very talented DJ; everyone loved her!

We had such a great time and LOVED the music.  Thank you sooooo much for a flawless program :) We were very lucky to have your great talent as DJ, MC and host at our wedding!

- Alison and Ron (NY)

==========

She was the DJ for my cocktail party of 50+ people, with guests' ages ranging from the mid-20s to 70. She listened to my concerns about music that would be appropriate for the group and tailored everything including the volume to suit my needs. She is a phenomenal DJ; she is prompt, professional, and very responsible. She is one of those people who works with you. She always has a smile on her face, but don't let that fool you, as she takes her business very seriously, which means that she is extremely dependable in all respects.

It was a pleasure not to have to worry about the music; I knew the music was taken care of, so it made the party that much more enjoyable for me. I was thrilled at how everything turned out! She really added to the success of my party, and for that I am very grateful!

I would recommend her without hesitation.

-Sandra (NYC)

Thank you DJ m-sparks for the wonderful job you did as our DJ at the New Year's Eve Party. All of our guests had a blast, and you were a big part of the reason why :)

 DJ m-sparks - you were great last night. I was so glad you could be the DJ!

So you want to know who I am, right?

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT ME*

* and maybe just a little bit more

The Early Years

A New Yorker and city girl at heart! 

Truth be told, I moved to the city from Canada when I was six, so not born but definitely bred. 

As a kid, I’d come home from school and turn up the music in my room and dance like no one was watching – c’mon, you know you did it/do it, too! 

But what I loved the most was creating mixed tapes… yes, I’m from THAT generation (!).  I’d want to get my mixes just right and would spend hours recording, rewinding and playing music (instead of doing my homework)...  

 
The Detour

Somehow I ended up becoming a corporate type, having gone to a couple of great schools, even Harvard Business School (!)

… worked on Wall St, climbed the ladder at a consulting firm and made it pretty far up.

But something was always missing...

 
Re-Birth of DJ m-sParks

I finally decided to quit the corporate job and cross one off the bucket list by taking a class for fun at Scratch DJ Academy. Who knew I’d end up loving it and finding my passion for music again. 

Started off dj’ing at house parties and spinning at downtown establishments… before I even knew it, I was doing this for real!

My motto is if you’re not having a good time, then I’m not having a good time… I love watching everyone get up and dance like no one’s watching…

I've got the instincts to know what will move the crowd and the skills to make it happen!

Mostly spinning commercial top 40 pop, hip hop and house, I’m now known for all different styles, whether it's indie alternative, rock, reggae, or funk and soul…  I especially love creating cross-genre mixes...  So give a shout out and let me know if you want me to spin for your next party!

Keep your ears open. You just might hear something you like

I guess you have many questions... I hope I can answer some

frequently asked questions

Why should I choose DJ m-sParks for my event?

I believe in focusing on your needs and making sure the music for your event is tailored for you and your guests so that it is one less thing to worry about.  Not only will you get a talented dj, but also a reliable professional who knows how to make sure the event is executed flawlessly.

What music genres do you play?

I can comfortably cover music that spans several decades, from current top 40 hits to hip hop, motown, disco, funk and soul, reggae, indie rock, electro and progressive house.  I’ll gladly work with you prior to the event to understand what genres or songs you’d like to request and/or those that are on a ‘do not play’ list.  If you are a die-hard country music or dubstep fan, however, then I am probably not the best dj for you or your event.

Do you take requests?

Yes!  I would encourage you to make a ‘request’ list and a ‘do not play’ list so I can better understand what you and your guests like/dislike so I can customize the music to your unique taste.

Would you be able to emcee our event?

Of course!  I can eloquently make announcements and/or introductions during your event and we can plan for the details.

Can I meet with you in person for a consultation before booking?

Yes, absolutely!  Your special event is important to me, and I can meet with you in person if you are in or near the NYC area, or over the phone/via skype so you can get to know me, my style, etc.

What are your rates?

My rates vary depending on the type of event and location of venue.  They can range from $500 to upwards of $2000.  While my services may seem priced on the higher end of the spectrum, you will get someone who will work closely with you to plan your special event.

Do you require a deposit?

A 50% deposit secures the booking of your event and bookings are on a first come first served basis.

Are you insured?

Yes, I have full liability insurance and can provide proof to venues as needed.

How do I contact you?

Thanks so much for thinking of me for your event!  It would be an honor to spin for you and your guests.  Please fill out the contact form to shoot me an email and I will get back to you within 48 business hours.  I look forward to hearing from you!
