17 yrs of Experience
Greetings, and thank you for visiting my site. My name is Alberto Murillo, I'm 32 and I go by the name DJ Vetz. DJing is only a weekend business for me--and the occasional weeknight. During the week, I am a Real Estate Agent, Home Mortgage Loan Consultant and bookkeeper (studying to be an accountant--yes I'm still in school). Other than that, I'm a great person who loves dancing Salsa, enjoys camping, snowboarding, traveling, and loves making new friends.

"A DJ has the ability to control your emotions, and thats very powerful."

"I believe everyoe should share what they know with the masses, in this way we can continue progressing as a species, in an innovative and harmonious way; we can all benefit and we can all win, win, win."
-Alberto G. Murillo (aka DJ Vetz)
First and foremost, I have to explain why I am still a DJ. It's quite simple actually, I LOVE MY JOB! The business, and the constant people-to-people interaction brings me peace and happiness...and as they say "if you love your job, you trully never work a day of your life".
I believe in sharing one's knowledge with the rest of the world, I have a huge appreaciation for those that also believe in this philosophy. Which is why I go out my way to fascilitate the coordination of your event, with my experience, knowledge, and skill we can make your event a memorable one.
