I always have a great time when I DJ in San Diego for Pacific Magazine. The most recent gig was to celebrate the grand opening of OB Warehouse in Ocean Beach, a new venue by the Cohn Restaurant Group.
There were excellent drinks by Crisps Cider and Hendricks Gin, delicious eats by Chef Elias Gonzales and of course vinyl dance beats by DJ Misha.
Check out a few photos from the event:
FAQs: Most Commonly Asked Questions about our DJ Services and Disk Jockey in San Diego
1. How much do you charge?
There are a few factors involved with this question: – What type of event is it? Wedding? Coporate event? Birthday? Where is the event located? How many people will be in attendance? What equipment is necessary?
Generally Mobil DJ services start at $99 per hour.
2. Do you have experience?
This may be the most important question one can ask of a any DJ and not just wedding DJ. For your big event, you want a well experienced professional DJ to be in charge of the entertainment; the DJ can make or break your party/event. And the answer is yes, we have over 10 years of experience in the corporate/private party DJ business.
3. Should we be hiring a band or a DJ?
There are big differences between a band and DJ. Bands are usually faily expensive ($1,500+), play a fairly limited genre of music, have naturally loud volume, and usually don’t provide a professional MC who will coordinate and run your event. Professional DJs like us will be able to play a wide variety of music for all age groups and demographics and also be your MC and coordinator.
4. Is there any difference between a Special Event DJ and a Club DJ?
Special and corporate events are much more challenging than a nightclub event with the wide variety of music required to satisfy all demographics and taste preferences. Also, a Special/Corporate Event DJ must be able to coordinate events and handle all announcements, as well as be able to work with other event professionals (catering directors, photographers, etc.).
5. Can we customize our music play list?
Of course you can. We make sure to get in all of your requests at your event. We do require that a completed song list be submitted a week in advance so that all music is prepared for the event.
6. What type of equipment do you use?
We use name brand equipment to guarantee quality sound and reliability. Some of the brands we use include: Mackie, JBL, Technics, Shure and American DJ.
7. Will you bring backup equipment to my event?
When a DJ brings high quality equipment to your event, back ups won’t be necessary. If a DJ is selling you on bringing back ups, maybe you should question their equipment. In any case, back ups will be available for extreme cases of equipment failure.
8. How far in advance should I hire the DJ?
It depends on the type of event you are planning; for example a wedding, many people book their wedding vendors a year in advance. This provides a good lead time on guaranteeing your vendor’s availability for the date you want, especially during peak wedding season. Off peak season, 6 months is a good lead time. But with any event, you would still want to book as far in advance as possible.
9. What happens if your DJ is a no show?
This scenario will not happen. Lines of communication with our DJs are wide open. In the case of a tragedy, which does happen, we will have a back up DJ available who will be prepped and up to speed on your event.
10. Will you MC and coordinate all of our events?
The DJ naturally is the MC of the event, unless otherwise specified. In the event that you do not have an event coordinator, our DJs jump into that position and keep the event flow as close to the time line as possible. If you do have a coordinator, our DJs work side by side with them.
Banana Republic hired me to DJ their corporate event and award party. This was a large event held at the Bayfront Hilton with attendance of over 800 people. The theme of the party was based on the show Mad Men and called “Mad About the 60’s.”
During dinner DJ Misha played chill downtempo and house beats while Jason Whitmore performed on live Saxophone.
If you are having a large event or corporate party with dancing and a DJ. I would love to be the DJ and provide the music. Please visit my san diego corporate party dj booking page with the details of your event.

Analog Bar – San Diego Nightclub
Last weekend I worked at Analog Bar with SanDieogHouseMusic.com and was really impressed with this venue. It’s a great place for a DJ, since special attention was given to both the DJ booth and the sound system. It’s also a fantastic place for getting down on the dance floor with a big room sound and sweet lighting. I look forward to working more at Analog Bar in the upcoming months.

I will be DJ’ing an upcoming event hosted by Pacific Magazine at Andaz Hotel’s new wine bar on Friday, March 25th from 5-8pm
Next to the honorable mention of my name, the editors of the mag also say: “The dude still plays vinyl!”
🙂 It’s true! Even in the world we live in today, where DJ music is moving fast towards the digital realm, I still play some vinyl records. My reasons? The aesthetics feel of handling vinyl and the quality of analog sound could never be matched or replaced by any software or digital file. Plus… I just love it!
