Xavier Thompson was involved in Omaha’s music scene and producing music for almost 10 years, as a DJ he quickly become the most requested DJ at Image Entertainment, DJing for an average of 60 clients a year.
What made him such a sought after DJ in the Omaha Metro area and its surrounding cities was not only his skill in mixing the latest songs with cuts from your favorite era, but also his likeability and eclectic personality.
“During events, I like to engage directly with my audience, whether it be as a whole or individually, because they feed off of my energy as much as I feed off of theirs.
I show my personality early on so guests can get to know me, as well as be comfortable enough to hit the dance floor later on in the night.”
With a strong background in music, from production, to being an accomplished saxophonist, Xave actually got his start DJing on tour with Def Jam recording artist Mark Battles. The tour covered almost 30 major cities, with stops in Chicago, Denver, New York, Portland, San Diego and Seattle. Eventually, he would go on to become the tour DJ and MC for several other acts, including Jonah Marais, the lead singer of popular LA boyband “Why Don’t We,” and open up for several major artists like Future, Rae Sremmurd and Waka Flocka.
While on tour, he took on the challenge of learning how to adapt to all types of audiences, reading a crowd, knowing what to play, and when to play it in order to make the event a success and keep the crowd happy.
Now in LA, DJ Xave makes being the Master of Ceremonies his full time job, specializing in weddings and hosting events every weekend, while working on music production during the weekdays. He keeps his music library up to date constantly, and is always learning new skills in his down time to add to his sets.
Top marks for Hey Mister DJ and Lee! Lee was recommended by both friends and the people working on our wedding and they were right. We didn’t want to put a lot of time into detailed playlists, so we gave Lee just a handful of inspiration songs and let him run with it. And he did, the music was on point all night! He worked with a circus troop we used providing background music for their performance. He took a special mix we created for first dance and worked with us to get everyone on the floor for an impromptu flash mob that was a highlight of the night. In short, Lee was amazing to work with and we look forward to the next event he DJs.Jeff & Eric, Wedding Wire Review
Just had my 50th birthday, and hired Hey Mister DJ. Our DJ was absolutely fabulous!! I didn’t have time to get a playlist to him, so when he arrived, he felt out the crowd, and seriously played everything I loved!! He kept the momentum going, and we ended up keeping him until way past his quitting time. If you are looking for someone to make your event memorable, I suggest you hire them!!Catherine, Wedding Wire Review
Hey Mister DJ came to play music at my 50th Birthday Party and was terrific! All of the arrangements – including payment – was handled on-line and was very easy & convenient. Mark played music from the playlist that I created and also took requests from the 85 guests in attendance. Everyone had such fun – we went an extra hour later into the night and Mark was very accommodating! Great service – I’d use them again for sure 🙂Shelly, Wedding Wire Review
