  1. Hello Al, can you please tell us a bit about yourself?
    Hi, I’m Al “DJ Al” Washington, I’m originally from the Bronx, NY. Growing up I was alway surrounded by music. My father had an amazing record collection and still does.  I remember we would have family come over and the music would play throughout the whole house. I spent my summers in South Carolina where my uncle and aunt had a gospel band.  They use to practice in the house and I would sit and watch being amazed by the music that was created.  Those moments shaped me and inspired me to one day do something in music.

  1. What are your focus areas and why?
    My focus areas are moving the mobile DJ business towards technology and gaining more mainstream events.  As technology advances, I have to ensure that my equipment and service can support the change.  We are in a digital age, and everyone has their mobile devices now, so we made requesting music easy.  We offer a text request service whereas guests can send us a song request without leaving the dance floor.  Our clients love the fact that they don’t have to scream over loud music to get a request to the DJ.
    Gaining more mainstream events will further brand A&M Professional Mobile DJ’s .  So far we have done sporting events, local charitable events and public school events.
  1. How do you describe “weRamdj” in a few words?
    A&M DJ’s are professional mood enhancers (lol). We are the backdrop setting of any event, and that’s an important role to be in.  The clients are expecting to be taken away to a fun filled place.

  1. Where do you think you are making an impact?
    In the Wedding services industry.  We have been a spotlighted Dj company for the past 2 years on thumbtack.com also we are featured in BridesOnAMission.com magazine.  In the wedding services industry we come highly referred from past clients, wedding planners such as Allen Event Planners in Orlando, FL, officiants like Catherine at Ceremonies by Catherine Pick – Wedding Officiant & Coordinator plus venues like the Crystal Ballroom in Florida.
  1. What are some things that most people don’t know about your job as a DJ?
    Some may think that you just press play.  A mobile DJ has a lot going on from keeping the event on task, working with staff and other vendors to ensure they are in place for the next segment, announcing and keeping a good dance mix plus taking request.  You have to master multi-tasking.
  1. Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years?
    I see us expanding and growing in the number of DJ’s we have.
  1. What were some of the biggest challenges you encountered while working on “weRamdj”?
    One of our biggest challenges is getting new equipment that doesn’t fit in the vehicle you use.  We have accomplished a lot, I think it’s time to get a bigger truck (lol).
  1. What can you tell young DJs who are pursuing their dreams?
    Don’t let nothing stop you from pursuing your dreams,  you were given that talent for a reason and I believe that reason is to serve people.  People associate music to a range of emotions and they use music to help heal and your part of that healing, so take this dream seriously.
  1. What are you most excited about at the moment?
    I’m most excited about our part we play with the American Cancer Society.  So many lives have been impacted by cancer, mine included.  Every client that books A&M Professional Mobile Dj’s helps us make donations to the cause and sponsors a team that “Walks for a Cure” every year.
  1. The last word or final thoughts?
    Please check us out at www.weRamdj.com and on Facebook at www.fb.com/weramdj also give us a like so we can know you found us and thank you for interviewing us.
