Here’s a little bit of information about me, Mike Smith, owner and lead DJ for Visionary DJ Services…
I began my career as a DJ in 1999, working at various bars and clubs in the Lower Mainland. When a resident DJ at the bar I was cooking at took leave to travel, I seized the opportunity and assumed the role of weekend DJ, learning the craft during my time away from work and applying my increasing knowledge with great success. This unplanned foray into working with music ignited a passion within me, prompting me to take up college studies in Recording Arts.
In 2009, I was DJ’ing weddings for friends when they asked. My best friend signed on with a bigger-name Vancouver area wedding DJ company and had a bad experience. He and his fiancé/wife felt they paid too much, never got to meet their DJ before the wedding, and had to drive their song requests to Richmond in advance of their wedding date. These issues became the antithesis of my new company; in other words, I knew I could do better!
I decided to take the leap and start my own company. Visionary DJ Services (so named because my DJ moniker was DJ Visions) was launched in the fall of 2009, and, working tirelessly to promote the business using social media, 2010 became a prosperous year for my start-up. The years since have been even more successful, and in 2012 I (and Visionary DJ Services by extension) was named Wedding DJ of the Year for both the Vancouver and British Columbia regions
The future looks bright for me and my company, and I hope to continue the successes and growth of the years past!
I would look forward to meeting you and showing you what I can do for you!
