Montreal Wedding Vendor Interview: On The Beats Events
Posted on 20 February 2017
This month we are highlighting Serafino Graziosi from On The Beats Events and I must admit I have been working with Serafino since I started in the wedding business 10 years ago and he is still one of the Montreal DJ’s that I always go to when looking for a professional DJ who really knows the business!
What made you become a DJ
My love of music, there’s was always music around our house growing up and my uncles were into music a lot as well. I started playing around with beat up turntables around 11 and my first party was my Grade 6 grad party, if you can believe that!
How long have you been in business
I’ve been working for myself DJ’ing over 20 years
On average how many weddings do you do each year
On average I would say between 45-50 events a year
What is the one thing you love most about being a DJ
I love meeting and speaking with different people, their views on music, the challenge it brings at any given event. Every event is different so it’s never boring!
Do you have a specific niche of music that you provide
No specific style of music, I’ve been doing this for so long I can literally adapt to any style of music on the whim! I listen to a lot of different styles of music so it helps in this industry
What are the biggest mistakes couples make when choosing their wedding DJ
Choosing pricing over quality and experience!!
What do you think distinguishes your work from others
“Class”, everything is done with class. I don’t overdo or overthink – the couples and their guests want to have fun and that’s my job. If the fire seems to fizzle out a little, then it’s my turn to light it up a little more!
What advise can you give to the 2017 Brides & Grooms
Have fun and enjoy your party! Enjoy your guests! I’ve seen it many times where couples are so focused on how things should be that they forget that they are at their party!
What are the music trends for 2017
Weddings are too different to focus on trends. You’ll always have the classics that will work at weddings, however, we must always keep an eye out for the popular stuff and try to adapt to the guests that we have that night. There is so much music out there to work with, providing you have that musical experience, you just need to know what to play and when to play it!
