James was great to work with! Always quick to respond whenever we had any questions. A true professional, he adapted quickly when we were forced to move our ceremony inside due to rain.Sent on 03/09/2019

10/10 DJ's a fantastic party!
We hired James for our NYE wedding social and he was great!! I found him through another social he DJ'd earlier in the year and pretty much decided on the spot that I wanted him for my own social. He knows how to keep the people on the dance floor all throughout the night. And a really awesome feature I haven't seen from any other DJ is that he has a huge library of music videos which he can play along with the music if the venue has video/screen capabilities. The music was never overly loud, I had numerous comments that the atmosphere was perfect for dancing, but you were also able to talk to people without yelling depending on where you were in the venue. Overall it was a really fun party and I would highly recommend him.Sent on 08/01/2019

Very happy with the results!
James was an integral part to our wedding ceremony music! I had chose a song for pur wedding party and i to walk down to but it was just a little bit too short for our large party. James reached out to me after i had asked on the Mantioba wedding facebook group if anyone had any ideas. I didn't want two different songs to walk down the aisle to and it had taken us forever to agree on one. The first thing i had to ask James was how much he wpuld charge as we were already over budget and to my surprise he said he wouldnt be charging us as it wasnt a huge job for him to do and he wanted to help us. We were so thankful for that! James took our song choice and made it longer in a way that nobody noticed. We were very impressed with his work and how quickly he got back to us. We would definitely recommend James Falk for any of your music needs!Sent on 22/01/2019

Best Wedding Social Ever.
Our wedding social was in October 2016, people are still talking about how great the music was. James had the dance floor packed the entire night, he knows how to read the crowd. The party was lit!
James was easy to work with: responsive, on time and had great recommendations for lighting, music and set up. James has been in the game for quite a while, and it definitely shows. I'd say he's probably one of the best in the city, and you won't be disappointed if he's your dance hall quarterback.Sent on 23/02/2018

Owner / Sales / DJ / Lighting Engineer
I possess an outstanding knowledge of all genres of music, evidenced thru my years of experience as Music Director for the largest background music provider in central Canada. I'm known to command audiences with my unique ability to be in sync with any crowd as I am well known to "specialize in everything."
I've studied both practical piano & music theory with Canada's Royal Conservatory achieving 1st Class Honours, which I apply in my practice as a highly skilled technical DJ. I have placed as high as 2nd in Canada in competition against my peers.
My role in Winnipeg's entertainment industry includes original resident DJ status at every major nightclub since the early 90's. These include Mondetta World Café, Boogie Nights Cabaret, Cowboy's Roadhouse, Whiskey Dixx, TYC Event Centre & Nashville's Event Centre & attest to my musical diversity & penchant for creating highly successful music concepts with uniquely inspired themes.
Manitoba's largest events have had me perform as both the DJ & Lighting Designer, including CSA "Commerce Socials", Winnipeg Art Gallery "Art & Soul" fundraisers, Octoberfest & Folklarama.
I excel at music database management, embedding highly useful meta-tags into music files. Every chart hit in the Billboard era is contained. 150 fields of data allow me to create playlists for any event, often in moments. This system is currently in use throughout much of central Canada's best hotels, nightclubs, lounges & restaurants.
Most recently Canad Inns concept change which turned their "nightclubs" into "event centres" has me at TYC Event Centre playing elite level events as well as at Nashville's Event Centre as DJ & lighting engineer for major concerts as well as wedding receptions & socials.
I am also a highly successful mobile DJ, with over 1000 wedding receptions to my credit. In addition, I have contributed lighting/audio installation & music consulting services to 1000's more. I may very well have played more events than any other DJ in Canada over my career.
