ABOUT YOUR DJ
Hello, my name is Shannon Miller, owner of Sound Extremes Mobile DJ. In case you would like to know a little about your DJ, here it is...
I was born and raised in Monroe, about 30 miles southeast of Des Moines. My interest in audio came to be in 1992 as a sophomore at PCM High School when I heard a vehicle enter our school parking lot "booming" its bass and I knew I just had to have something like it for my vehicle. From that day through 2003, I just had to have the best audio system in my car...and succeeded in winning all stereo contests I entered except for one during my competitive years. Now, as a family man, the great sound systems that I pass my time with are mobile in of a different sort.
Upon graduating high school in 1994, I went to Indian Hills Community College in Ottumwa, receiving my first certificate in Electronics/Computer Systems in 1995 and then an associates in Robotics/Automated System Technology in 1996 from which I gained an immense knowledge of how sound and electrical systems work down to their most basic components.
But in an effort to make the world a better place, I never used either degree, as my passion has always been audio and music. Combined with the fact that I have a people-oriented personality, in 1997 I began Sound Extremes Mobile DJ service, while working in the service industry for over a decade alongside it. Now, most of my time is occupied with DJ work or family, although I do also work part time at Wells Fargo Arena, the Civic Center, Hoyt Sherman place, Seven Flags event center, HyVee Hall, and Stephen's Auditorium among a few other endeavors doing sound and lighting as well.
It was a humble beginning, starting small and not knowing much about pro audio equipment or even weddings, but through the years, and much research as well as much trial and error, I have expanded my knowledge and skills as well as upgraded the DJ system again and again to the point where show after show we regularly receive compliments on everything from sound quality to music selection to the way I interact with guests.
I implement only concert quality speakers and amplifiers known for performance and reliability and have finally settled on a system that exceeds any I've heard elsewhere.
Over the years, the only thing that hasn t changed in either the car audio or DJ business is the fact that I still try to make everything as affordable as possible while offering a superior end product.
I do try to always answer the phone or email back right away, or call you back within 5 minutes, but sometimes it is not always possible. If you don't hear back from me within 8 hours, please call or text me again or send another email.
I used to run multiple units, but as of 2014, due to the large number of referrals and number of people requesting that only I personally be their DJ, I have downsized my business so I can only perform at one show per day, that way you will know exactly who your DJ is going to be and I can give you the personal service and quality you deserve without worry from my customers that some less qualified person will show up at their event as other companies often do.
Thank you for visiting the site, and taking the time to research what I can offer you for your special day!!!
