Mark Ridlen, DJ

DJ Mark Ridlen ( a.k.a. DJ Mr. Rid) has been active in the Dallas area since 1984 when he landed a position at the legendary Starck Club.  Mark created DJ Deluxe Productions in 1989 and began focusing on upscale wedding receptions and private parties for companies and individuals. Whether the guest list is 50 or 5000, Mark will infuse your gathering with a stylish sense of celebration and spontaneity. Regular corporate clients include Maggiano's, Neiman Marcus and Stanley Korshak as well as local wedding party planners and caterers too numerous to mention. In recent years, he has also amassed a huge Karaoke library suitable for all ages.

      One of the many areas that distinguish Mark from most party DJs is his background as a musician, singer and visual artist. D Magazine voted him ' Best DJ Of Eclectic Sounds' in 2001. His notion of "presentation is everything" finds it's way into the most meticulous of details so vital to an exciting event. Working with such a vast library of tunes, from the most popular to the most obscure, no music genre is too diverse for Mr. Rid. Programming for themed events (Jewish, Polynesian, Italian, Asian, etc.) is another area of expertise he really excels in. Mark's passion and savvy contribute to mixing you the perfect musical cocktail every time--always fresh, always appropriate!
