About Me

About-John-ThorpeThank you for checking into High Sierra Sounds for your entertainment. A little about me. I started my DJ career at the early age of 7. My dad was a DJ for WNYC in New York City and often I would go to work with him. He would let me que the records for him during his show and many times I would start and stop the music. I was hooked. I started my professional DJ career at Johns Green gables night club in Phoenix Arizona at the age of 17.

What makes me different from other DJ companies? It's simple, SERVICE. Need a lapel microphone for your ceremony? You got it. Need lighting for the dance floor? No problem. Other DJ's charge for the "extras" but i DO NOT. If you need it and i have it, it's yours. Need a mic stand? A wireless hand-held microphone? NO CHARGE!!! You do not pay me for set-up time or tear down. If you use my services I start the music 15 minutes prior to my start time as your guests begin to arrive and you do not pay for that time either.

My web site is interactive. You can pick out your music, give me wedding information, pay your deposit, print out contracts, etc...

My equipment is state-of-the-art. I use Numark CD and USB players, Mackie SRM 450 speakers and Sure microphones. I also use a Fender Passport PA system that can be battery operated for remote locations.

I have back-up for EVERYTHING. Your music is stored on three different sources. I bring back-up equipment, CD players and mixer!

I've been doing this for over 30 years. Your satisfaction is my utmost concern. This is your day, I will work with you every step of the way to make sure everything is perfect.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

John Thorpe
