Dud of the Season

Gregg’s least favorite track of the season is Lady Gaga’s “Perfect Illusion” – Gaga’s finest work is fading away in the rearview mirror.  Hope that she can start making dance floor hits again!

Mix of the Month

The “80s 90s Something Mix” is an R&B-centric mix that revisits the good musical vibes of the late 1980s early 1990s. Representative artists include Terence Trent D’Arby, Soul II Soul, Janet Jackson, Lisa Stansfield, Seduction, Maxi Priest, George Michael, Seal and more.

Announcing Mike Bacon as DJ of the Month for October 2016

At Ambient DJ Service, we don’t regularly acknowledge an employee of the month like McDonalds.  However, from time to time when superior effort and achievement have been extended, we like to recognize a “DJ of the Month.”

For the month of October, that performer is Mike Bacon, aka “DJ Iron Mike.”  Mike has been performing under Ambient DJ Service since 2007.  He was Ambient’s initial second system in  our “multi op” business model.  In early 2016, Mike accepted our offer to spin exclusively for Ambient DJ, a decision that we were much delighted by.

Mike’s gift of music coupled with a gritty work ethic have made him a rising star in the New Jersey wedding and events industry.  In September and October, Mike hosted a series of super successful weddings, proceeded to get married himself, and then returned from Cancun to book ten events in his first week back.  Mike’s salesmanship is particularly impressive since he primarily relies on referrals, repeat clients and social media mojo.

Other reasons that we love DJ Iron Mike:  he is a team player, he plays hard, he comes up with creative ideas (often outside of the box), and he is not afraid to constructively debate concepts and ideas for the greater good of the company.

Congratulations Mike, and keep up the great work!
