About The DJ Guy


Ed Altounian
Owner / Disc Jockey

The DJ Guy is owned and operated by Ed Altounian of Howell, MI. Ed started DJing in 2000 and has over 18 years of experience DJing at nightclubs, private parties as host of a internet radio show and of course; hundreds of weddings. Some of our repeat clients include Pepsi Bottling Group, Saline Lectronics, NGK Sparkplugs, Costco, The Brighton Optimist Club, Michigan State University and the University of Michigan.

Over the years, the DJ Guy has won many awards including Best of The Knot, WDIV's Vote for the Best (Channel 4), The US Commerce award for Best of Howell (2012 - 2016), and The A List of Detroit. Our ratings on Google, Wedding Wire and The Knot are a good example of what you can expect from a true professional!

Its YOUR Day - We'll do it your way...

The DJ Guy believes that your wedding reception is NOT about the DJ. It's about the bride and groom. It's about making sure that we do everything to make their reception as memorable as possible, without losing focus of who the stars are!

We don't just play music, we anticipate the needs of our clients and help keep things flowing smoothly. We've helped keep tents from blowing away during storms, moved tables around as needed and even set guest favors on tables when things were running behind. We're the ones that help make everything right, when things get a little off. This experience comes from doing hundreds of weddings over the years and knowing how we can assist in a way that will make things right.

The DJ Guy was started with the philosophy that the client comes first. We're not rockstars and we certainly didn't write the songs we play, so why should we act that way? If we can't make our customers happy, someone else will and the best way to attain new customers is by word of mouth. Many of our past clients have referred new clients to us and we are forever grateful for that. In fact, over 89% of our new clients are referrals from past clients!

In 2007, The DJ Guy went digital. Going digital paved the road to a bigger music catalog and eventually to a smaller setup utilizing laptops and allowing faster song access and the ability to cue requests instantly. We currently carry nearly 200,000 songs in our catalog, in addtition to the 26 million we have access to on iTunes and Amazon.

All of our DJs use professional setups that look clean and organized (no tangled wire running everywhere!)

Travis came to work for The DJ Guy in 2010. Travis had recently moved up from Alabama where he had worked in the clubs. He is an expert in the Country genre (even better than Ed!).

Travis is a true southern gentleman and you'll notice that right away when he says "yes sir"/"yes mam".

Travis uses identical equipment so there is no difference in song selections, lighting or the excellent service, whether it's Ed or Travis hosting your event!

Travis knows how to get party going without forgetting who the stars are!

Travis is our second most requested DJ and we often get calls asking for him.
