As a DJ, Vaughn's skills have been refined over the course of a remarkable career at numerous events of great diversity! Routinely assigned to events that are musically too challenging for most DJs, Vaughn has crossed many cultural and generational lines musically. By necessity he has had to develop a vast collection of music that covers the needs and tastes of people from all walks of life.
To Vaughn, being a skilled DJ means being creative and technically able to beatmix and "jockey" music in skillful ways. Not being satisfied to simply "press play" every 3 minutes and fade into a new song, Vaughn will creatively match beats to flow from song to song. Your guests will never have to stop between tunes but will keep right on grooving to the beat!
Vaughn's talents are combined with a desire to be inclusive and entertaining while pleasing his clients providing a first-class DJ performance.
As an MC, Vaughn is known for correct pronunciation, informative announcements and appropriate language on the mic. Once the dancefloor is going strong Vaughn is content to mostly let the music do the talking and not interrupt your guests who are having fun dancing.

Vaughn will work with you to develop a unique music plan for each segment of your event. As a DJ he very much enjoys preparing music for events. Vaughn's ever growing music collection includes: Electronica (Breakbeat, Club, Drums & Bass, Dubstep, EDM, House, Industrial, Lounge, Trance, Tribal, Trip Hop), Folk, Freestyle, Funk, Hip Hop, Indie, Jazz (Big Band, Swing), New Age, Oldies (50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, Doo Wop), Pop, Reggae, Rock (Alternative, Classic, Darkwave, Metal, New Wave), Soul, R&B and more!
Vaughn is also very capable with ethnic and world music such as: Celtic & Irish, German (Deutsch), Italian, Latin (Bachata, ChaCha, Cumbia, Mambo, Merengue, Reggaeton, Salsa), Indian (Bhangra, Bollywood, Hindi), Jewish, Middle Eastern, Albanian, Greek and more!
Vaughn has updated his sound system to include FOUR new Electro-Voice ELX112P powered speakers PLUS Electro-Voice ZXA1 powered subwoofers so you can experience the entire acoustic range of music from the lowest bass to the highest treble.
A 4 speaker sound system including subwoofers is Vaughn's standard package! (6-8 speaker packages are available) Unlike most DJs, Vaughn carries extra backup equipment to every event which is identical to his main equipment assuring his clients of a top quality production.
Vaughn: "I prefer Electro-Voice EV speakers, which I have been using since I began DJing. With 1000 watts and 132 decibel SPL maximum output per speaker, the EV ELXs have power to spare when a packed dancefloor is going full tilt AND the quality doesn't diminish! The sound quality is great loud or soft. Also, I can focus the sound output to the middle of the dancefloor."
4 x Electro-Voice ELX112P self powered speakers, low profile, high output
2 x Electro-Voice ZXA1 self powered subwoofers, low profile, high output
2 x Yamaha STAGEPAS 300 portable system for ceremonies and cocktails
