The old expression “You Get What You Pay For” applies perfectly to the Mobile DJ & Promotion Industry. However, if you are looking for Experience, Professionalism, and Fun, consider the many successful events that our DJ & Promotion Service has been a part of over the last few years. Through the years We have talked with many people that have had, or have seen, a wedding or a party ruined by an inexperienced or an unprofessional DJ or promoter. Remember, the entertainment you choose will be one of the most important parts of your event. If the DJ or promoter that you hire does not have much experience or you are getting a price too good to be true, they probably has just enough experience to ruin your event. Pricing is important, but ask “What kind of value will I receive for my money?” We know it can be a challenging task to find the right DJ or promoter for your event, especially if you have never done it before. Throughout this web site you will find information that will give you the knowledge you need in choosing the right DJ or promoter for your event. Your special day cannot be re-done, so please take your time and really check out who you are considering. Please remember, after all your hours of planning, and all the expense of your event, the success will come right down to how well your DJ or promoter has done his job, so take your time and choose wisely. If We can be of any service to you, or you are just looking for price information please feel free to contact me at any time. I love my work and enjoy seeing others enjoy themselves. We work hard to meet your needs and remember at our DJ & Promotion Service you’re the BOSS!

I am accessible anytime by mobile phone or e-mail, and return messages within 24 hours. I bring energy, entertainment and atmosphere to your event through interaction with guests in a tasteful and professional manner. I have always treated my business as a business, not a hobby. This enables me to provide the client an experience that will be pleasant and helpful in taking the pressure off of planning their event. I have been quoted in saying, “At any job, I work from the time I get the first call or e-mail until I send the thank you card after the event”.

Gary Bass

Since 1962 Gary Bass has been involved with music on a professional basis. From the days in high school when Gary had his own band, to his present day efforts of recording, producing, and playing beach, shag, rhythm and blues music. While Gary’s early efforts were with bands, it was not until 1974 that his calling in the music world became known not as a musician in a band but as a DJ.

Since 1985 Gary has been the House DJ for Fat Harold’s Beach Club, which is located in the Ocean Drive section of North Myrtle Beach, S.C. Gary has six DJ’s under his direction. Fat Harold’s Beach Club is known as the granddaddy of all beach clubs. Fat Harold’s Beach Club has been named, “Club of The Year” seven times by the beach music industry. Fat Harold’s Beach Club was also crowned, “Show Club of The Year For 2005” at the Carolina Beach Music Awards. Gary is also a staff DJ at Thirsty’s 2 Beach Club, Greensboro, NC. Thirsty’s was named, “Show Club of The Year For 2003”.

While Gary’s forte is Beach Music, other types of music can be provided as requested.

To his credit, Gary has released three CD’s in which he arranged, sang, produced, and played the harmonica and drums on several of the numbers. Each of the CDs have been nominated for Album of the Year along with several other categories.

“Boogie-D, Boogie-D”, features the Beach Music Classic, “Soothe Me”. Ranked #2 on the all time Beach Music charts. Still being played in clubs today.

“Don’t Go To Sleep On Me”, features the ballad, “I’m Not Giving You Up”.

“Anybody Seen Her?”, features the #1 hit, “Little Bitty Pretty One”. The song stayed #1 for eight weeks. The CD stayed on the charts for 54 weeks.

Gary is also featured on “Love Laugh & Live”, “Salt Air”, “If Ten Will Kill Me Nine, Give Me Nine”, “Locals Only”, and “Keep On Shaggin”.

Gary has played for two South Carolina Governors, one North Carolina Governor and with every major beach band, which includes The Fantastic Shakers, Coastline Band, The Band of Oz, and The Craig Woolard Band. He has appeared with Jerry Butler and Delbert McClinton.

Gary’s act is a mixture of DJ and entertainer. While playing music, Gary incorporates the singing and playing of some of his songs that are on his CD’s.

While Beach Music is Gary’s specialty other types of music such as country, big band, top 40, and current dance music can be included at the employer’s request.

Gary is a member of the Beach Music DJ Hall of Fame, has been named 6 times the Cammy Beach Club and Mobile DJ of The Year, and has been named to the R&B Beach Music Hall of Fame (not to be confused with the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.)

The R&B Beach Music Hall of Fame contains such profound members as General Johnson and the Chairman of the Board, and Hank Ballard and the Midnighters. This honor is given to a person or group who has contributed to the growth and development of Beach Music.
