DJ CRAIG -AKA BUGSIE
PRINCIPAL DJ / MC / OWNER
I love music and how it encompasses every aspect in our lives from work to pleasure. I began to actively incorporate interactive team building games and music for my corporate clients Microsoft, XBOX, Starbucks, Nintendo etc. which we still do today. Next I turned my focus to weddings. Planning, creating and putting into effect the perfect wedding is probably the most rewarding career choice one can make when you see the love in the room and the appreciation from the family and friends. It is always an honor to be part of such an incredible day where two people start there journey together adding new members to there family and making dreams come true.
It’s the best feeling in the world doing something you love.
My favorite thing about a wedding is the ceremony is it reminds me every time of the vows I took on my wedding day.
In my free time I like to take trips with my family to Seaside, Oregon, and the Washington Peninsula.
Experience: 15+ years

“If music be the food of love, play on!”
When I first stumbled upon DJ-ing 10 years ago, I never imagined I would enjoy it so much. What started as a hobby has since grown into one of my greatest passions. From the initial planning of the big day to keeping the dance floor packed all night, every aspect of being a DJ continues to jazz me to this day.
I can say with full sincerity that I look forward to every single event I am fortunate enough to be a part of - and see each as a unique opportunity to compose something special. I believe that, although events may follow a similar structure, there is always room to get creative and spin different elements to your specific needs and character. There is no ask too big or too small, and I always enjoy going over every detail meticulously to make sure your event ends on a high note.
I particularly love getting to know my couples more closely so when their big day comes, we can look for ways to shake things up a bit. Whether it be a surprise traditional Chinese Dragon Dance or doing a fun round of trivia about the couple to dismiss tables for dinner, we can always work together in harmony to make your dreams a reality.
To me, there is no greater reward than making people happy through music, and I am so proud to be a part of that through Bugsie Productions. Getting positive feedback from my couples is always music to my ears, and I am committed to doing what it takes to continue to be one of the best in the industry.

I can say without a shred of doubt in my mind that music is the passion of my life. Whether it’s discovering a new song and knowing that people are going to love it, seeing a show live, or finding the perfect two songs to go together for dancing, I absolutely love what I do. With nearly 10 years under my belt at Bugsie Productions, I can honestly say that any job that comes after this one is going to seem dull by comparison.
Getting to see people constantly on one of the best days of their life is something not many people get to experience more than a few times – and I get to do it with every single wedding I do, and it’s never not magical. It’s never something that gets boring, and it’s never something I’ll take for granted. This day is about you, and it’s my job to make sure that people are having a good time.
If all you take from this bio is this, I will be stoked: Remember, it’s not just about the music you want at your wedding. It’s the personality of the DJ that’s going to be crucial to the flow of the evening. As a wedding couple, you need to find that DJ that has a personality that matches with your own, because the people at your wedding are the people you’ve surrounded yourself with your entire lives. They are extensions of yourselves, and being able to speak on the microphone, play music, and control the flow in a way that matches your personalities is the key to a truly amazing DJ experience.
I love, love, love, love what I do here. I’m thankful every single day that I joined an improv class ten years ago at Everett Community College, and found Craig. I’ve had some of the most fun of my life these last few years, and can’t wait to meet all of you that are getting married. I’d love to have a meeting to get to know you, and figure out exactly what you want to make your day both unique and as dang close to perfect as can be.
In my free time, I voice act, listen to audio books, watch a lot of anime, play way too many video games, and try to make it to as many music festivals as I can. I hope to see you soon!
