About Nashville Mobile Party DJs Entertainment
Thank you for visiting Nashville Mobile Party DJ's.
Hello, and thank you for stopping by. My name is DJ/M.C.
Steffon Ridgeway, owner/founder 0f Nashville Mobile Party DJ's & Audio
Productions. I first
began my DJ career back in 1993 while still serving on active duty
in the U.S. Army Infantry at Fort Campbell
Kentucky, with my first larger sized nightclub residency at Denim
& Diamonds Nightclub in Madison Tn.
Upon receiving my
honorable discharge from military service, I moved
back to my hometown of Panama City Beach Florida where
I gained years of experience spinning at famous nightclubs such
as Spinnaker Beach

Electronica), Harpoon Harrys Waterfront Cafe (Top 40, Rock), Thunderbirds
Nightclub (Retro, Disco, Oldies, Top
Sharky's (Top 40, Rock, Retro), The Boardwalk Beach Resort (Top 40, Disco, Oldies with Performance

I have also provided mobile DJ/MC
entertainment for a countless number of wedding receptions,
fraternity/sorority parties, Christmas & New Years Eve parties and corporate
sponsored events in the greater Panama City & Nashville areas. Some of the corporate sponsors and
promotions that we have worked with are Rice Crispies, Banana Boat, Hawaiian Tropic, Playboy, Budweiser,
Corona, Miller Beer, JBL Audio, Venus
Swimwear and Universal
In August of 2000, I moved back to Nashville after being
offered a residency at newly opening nightclub Trafalgar Square (formerly
known as The Music City Mix Factory) downtown on 2nd
Avenue. In Nashville, I have maintained
residencies at several hot night spots including Graham
Central Station (Retro, Rock, Top 40), Banana Joes (Top 40, Retro,
Rock), The Outer Limit Nightclub (Top 40, Hip Hop, Rap, Rock, Electronica), Buck Wild (Rock, Country, Retro, Top 40), NV

40, Retro, Rap, Electronic), and Denim & Diamonds (Country) as well as re-mixing and
producing Top 40 remix show Club 107 a Top 40 dance remix show airing on Nashville radio station 107.5 the River for over 2 1/2 years and also mixing
live four hour Top 40 remix dance sets Friday and Saturday nights on Nashville radio station 102.5 the Party
from Time nightclub on 2nd Ave. I have
also performed at many after concert dance parties for several major label recording artists such as Zac Brown (DJ between sets), 50 Cent, Coolio, Nelly, Days of the New, Ashanti, Salt N
Pepa, and T.I. as well
as producing several commercial advertisements for the
Nashville area radio markets.
In all of the years that I have been a DJ, I have also had
the very good fortune of being more than just a Mobile DJ and this is why.
There are three
types of DJ's: Mobile, Radio, and Nightclub. Each has something different to offer. One type isn't necessarily better than the other, just
different. In choosing a DJ, knowing their background is helpful and makes your
selection a little easier. Here is what you need to know about the three different DJ types and how they can help
A Mobile DJ provides DJ services in any given
location. Usually, they tend to cater to weddings, private parties, etc. The best qualities that mobile DJ's
have is that they know a little about everything. They are good with announcements and the formalities of
specific events, but they also know music, audio & lighting
systems, and how to keep a
professional fun filled atmosphere. A good DJ of this type should know how to
"read a crowd"
and make sure that the guests are content with the entertainment. The mobile DJ is the best choice for private services. Keep in mind that
that NOT ALL mobile DJ's have
all of these qualities, but these are the ones you should look
for when choosing a mobile DJ.
In comparison to mobile
DJ's, Radio DJ's have a different set of qualities. They are usually in a closed environment and don't usually
have to interact directly face to face with their audience. Their
music selection, and knowledge about it, is usually limited to a specific genre or style. They usually tend to
play off of a pre-determined playlist designated by the radio station's format and Program Director. However, these aren't
necessarily "bad" qualities. These are the characteristics that make a great radio personality. They have to be
specifically adapted to their environment in order to be credible. For instance, in order to be a credible "Hip
Hop" radio DJ, you have to know that particular style very well. Additional qualities include: excellent announcement skills, great timing, and
professionalism. In addition, radio DJ's get the best
advertising just by being on the radio every day.
Nightclub DJs have a
wide range of skills in the creative department. They are expected to
put on a good show for an entire night often 6-8
hours or more without missing a beat. They are the masters
of reading a crowd. This form of DJ experiences some of the harshest conditions of the job in regards to the
audience. A good Club DJ is able to mix/remix music live, keep it in beat, and transition the music so that it all blends together perfectly. Although
most Club DJs stick to a specific genre that the nightclub expects them to play, they usually know the music better than anyone. They have to in order to
mix, remix and make
smooth transitions, kind of similar to
being a musician. This type of DJ normally
has good public announcement skills, and their work in the musical genres
area can be unparalleled to any other.
