About Me

okay........here is my bio. I started DJing when I was 10 and established DAZZLE DJ SERVICE. that name sucked so, After some hard thought, NV DJ SERVICE was born (slogan: Make Your Friends GREEN With NV!). I am turning 14 in 3 weeks :( do i won't be the second current 13 year old anymore. o well! ANy way, Im into house/techno/trance/electronica and all club music. I also like 70's 80's and 90's which suggested starting a mobile dj service. Well i could go on for hours, but, as they say, a picture is worth a thousand word so here is a few. I'll let them speak for themselves. More pics to come (once i get my low lying fog juice in)

Greets, Ryan and welcome.

Nice system setup. I was in my 30s when I started and didn't have a decent setup like that. :D

Enjoy your travels at ODJT. :)
 
I just gotta send out some major props to you young dudes parents!!

Mine were not supportive at all.. and the amount of time, money and love that they share with you two brings warm fuzzies to my heart...

You better know that they love you,,,, so but them something bad ass for Xmas!!
 
i would but i'm in debt :( my parents support, but i pay for everything. otherwise i totally agree with you

Even if you are in debt, your parents should be a high enough priority that you would make the sacrifice and still "buy (or "but" :p) them something bad ass."

Certainly you pay for everything, but the support your parents give you extends beyond that--think about NOT what they do or do not buy for you, BUT what they actually do DO for you (and I guarantee you that many of those things still involve them spending money).

As you read other peoples' stories, you will find that DJs often do not get the kind of support from friends and family that we always wish we would.
 
I am in debt but not a whole lot like....1 1/2 parties worth..lol

My parents also loan me ther money but i got pay them back... "Gotta spend money to make money"

I like the mackies!

Ryan we should talk on the phone sometime!

I just want to illustrate what I mean by "support". Many parents would not even lend their thirteen-year-olds money for a DJ biz.

I bet they even charge you a low interest rate--or perhaps even no interest rate at all.

THAT is the kind of support that NOT all kids your age have; thanks to your parents, you have opportunities that others don't, which is why you should also make sacrifices to do things for them--even if that sets you back.

Eh?
 
I was going to say that yes you buy your stuff with the money that you make now, but I would bet that when you started they helped you out,,, and that is so outstanding.

I can hear it now in my house...

Chuck the future bad ass Maui DJ,,,,,"hey Mom & Dad, I wanna start a DJ biz with my buddy Jeff (his real name and my 1st partner) all I need is $500.00 (yes, I'm that old), can you help?"

Dad,,,,, "We want you to learn the value of a dollar, so if you want something, go mow lawns or rake someones leaves. Earn it and you will enjoy it more"

Chuck walking away sad...

when I was out of ear shot...

Dad,,,,"that'll shut him up. DJ biz. What the hell is HE thinking! He needs a trade. Or maybe we can get him to join the Army."

Mom,,,, "Honey he's only 12!"

Dad,,,, "Never to young to start thinking about your future, and I tell you what, when he's 18 and gone for the summer after he graduates, let's move, not tell him, and throw all his stuff out"

Mom,,,, "OK, you know best. I love you"

Dad,,,, "I love you too. Get me a cigar"


But I'm over that now..................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

Fred aint got issues, I got issues!!!
 
When I was thirteen, my parents bought me an electric guitar, amp and music lessons. That was nice.

They supported me 100%.

Then they heard the kind of music I was playing.

They didn't even let me practice anymore--NO support whatsoever.

But kids these days days can sue their parents over things like that.

It's another reason why support is so valuable, kids.
 
in the US you can "divorce" your parents. Like I said all my parents support me for is

- Suburban to get me to the gigs, I drive it myself.
- Occationally load/unload drums/speakers if I'm lucky or parents are available.

The rest I'm on my own, no financial support, which is a double edged sword.

vinyl spinner:

I would! but I think that they have other things on their mind besides gifts. And my Dad started me on DJing. And the only reason i have my set is because he is in charge of my college account. Don't worry, i don't get any interest. all will be paid back before junior year. (yes even if i have to work at McDonalds). So props to my dad and My Mom who made the skirts!!! wooooo go parentS!!!!!!

I am glad to have what i have (I don't have an mp3 or video game system) and I thin that the only gift that would make them happy is either a Huge winning lottery ticket.......or........making my business a success

Exactly, nice post Johnny. My mother never bought me equipment when I was younger, I wouldn't expect her too. It's my business, my responsibility. She's never been 100% being me being a DJ as she says "You could do much better". Mom tends to think of my DJ career as a "good paying hobby". Funny thing is it pays better than 90% of the available jobs in my area.

What she has done:

Lent me money to buy CDs.
Lent me her car to go back and fourth to work.
Bought me really cool shirts to wear while working.
Fronted me money to start this forum.

Parent's in general do a lot for their kids even when they don't think it's the best move. You'll understand when you get a little older. :)

Welcome aboard, Ryan! :walkman:
