“After all of these years, I’m still passionate about the music, about creating the vibe to help my clients and their guests to party and dance the night away, and I still enjoy the thank you’s, the high fives, and referrals that come with people truly enjoying themselves at the event that I’m performing. Each audience, even from repeat business, is different. Being able to read the audience at each event keeps me sharp and allows me to grow as an entertainer. In other words, music has kept me thinking and feeling young, and it never gets old.” DJ Professor, aka Nick Kraintz
With almost 25 years of experience in both the nightclub and mobile DJ fields, Nick Kraintz is one of North America’s most versatile and technologically proficient entertainment professionals. While many DJ’s have one area of expertise, Nick proudly positions himself as an entertainer who can go into any situation, be it a wedding, corporate event, or nightclub setting on a moment’s notice and have the expertise to read the crowd, choose the appropriate music, and elevate the energy of the event into a festive and memorable occasion.
Nick’s journey as a DJ began at Sensations, one of the most popular dance clubs in Phoenix during the late 1980’s. It was there that he was introduced to the popular music of the time, but also became proficient at creating music formats in the nightclub setting. He parlayed his time at Sensations into an Entertainment Consultant position at the colossal, 40,000 square foot venue Phoenix Live at the Arizona Center in the early 1990s. It was shortly thereafter that Nick would help create the concept for Puzzles the club inside of the Phoenix Live complex.
A subsequent residency at Puzzles placed Nick squarely on the map of the Phoenix nightlife scene. Routinely playing to loyal standing room only audiences, his stint as DJ Professor gave him the creative outlet for fusing several musical genres such as alternative rock, industrial, early techno, rap core, 80’s new wave and punk, along with a dash of hip hop for good measure. It was utilizing these myriad genres that allowed DJ Professor to create his own brand to connect himself with a loyal audience and a festive, even raucous atmosphere.
“It was one of my regulars from Puzzles who asked me to do his wedding in 1996; that’s how I got started in the wedding business. We had so much fun at that wedding that I decided to reinvent myself and begin a new chapter in my DJ career, said Nick.” From those humble beginnings, NDK Professional DJ Service was born. In a relatively short time, NDK established itself as an innovative company that specializes in custom, full service events, offering top quality entertainment, comprehensive services in all forms of media, and exceptional value with an established and loyal clientele. To this day, Nick has performed over 3500 weddings and events across North America, and travels to any destination to make your wedding or special event an elegant and memorable experience delivered in a professional manner.
