with DJ CHEF Marc Weiss, "The Chef That Rocks"
Featured on Food Network, MTV, FUSE and Discovery Channel "The
Party Planner" .
DJ CHEF took
time out of his busy schedule to talk to us about his popular DJ
CHEF's Cooking Class Bachelorette Parties & Bridal Showers.
How have bachelorette/bachelor parties changed over the years?
It used to be the same routine where the girls go out to NYC or AC
and do the male revue/stripper thing and get humiliated in front
of people they don't know. Now I'm seeing the girls are tired of
that experience and want to celebrate more with their friends at
home. They will often complete the night by going out locally and
meeting up with the guys (or other friends).
What are some of the hottest trends you are
seeing in bachelorette/bachelor parties, and how are you catering
DJ CHEF's Bachelorette Cooking Class Parties of course! It is by
far the most popular type of private party request that I am
What do you offer soon to be brides?
A super fun party at the home that is interactive with the bride
where they will eat, drink, cook, learn, dance & sing! I do this
for bridal showers in the home as well (or if its at a venue I
offer my DJ/Dessert and demo with the bride format)..... The girls
also get the bride the super hot "I got cookin' with DJ CHEF!"
apron. You can add her name bling'd out in rhinestones as well.

I always tell my clients to reserve their date as soon as they
have one. The longer they wait, the less likely that the date will
What does the bachelorette party encompass and
The DJ CHEF's Bachelorette Cooking Class Party is a unique party
that I developed, where I come to the home and cook, teach and
deejay while the guests eat, drink, learn, dance & sing. I have
signature "cooking routines" I do with the bride that are really
amazing, as well as other fun routines that make the night really
memorable for the bride and her friends! Please call for further
details (I can't give away all my surprises ;-) )
How is what you provide different from the
traditional bachelorette party?
I have tailored the parties to give the girls everything that they
would want in a fun, “Girls Night Out”. I give the bride and her
guests that special level of attention right in their own home.
Tell us about how you make this special day
extra special and memorable for the bride.
In addition to the expected food & music I have the party somewhat
scripted out, so that I can keep taking the party up a notch; the
brides really love it.
How is what you offer different from other
venues out there?
Well that's what's different......I give the bride a personal
party at the home, transforming it into her own personal
"club".... When you celebrate at a venue/nightclub/theme show you
have to deal with the general public invading your space. You
jeopardize the evening being ruined by "the intoxicated close
dancer" or "jealous girl" trying to steal your spot light. I keep
hearing these stories and how the guests at my parties really
enjoy what I offer so much better. I've posted some of the bride’s
reviews and letters on my website.
Why would this be a viable alternative for such
a special night out?
Watch the videos @ www.DJChefBridesRock.com ! You tell me ;-)
Do you offer something that’s appealing for
both bride’s and grooms?
Yes, I do a "Jack & Jill" party, a bachelor/bachelorette party
with the bride & the groom’s friends.
Is this suitable for all ages? And, how about
mom’s, is it something they would enjoy and can be included on?
Absolutely. They party is pretty "clean"...I have a lot of moms,
aunts and family members at my parties. The party can get as wild
as the guests are! (I've seen it all!).
What other type of events are you available
I do a lot of bridal showers & special birthdays. I also perform
at larger corporate events, benefits and food & wine galas and
festivals across the country. I can perform in the home or at any
Are you available for midweek parties or do you
only operate on the weekends. And, is there a difference in what
is offered or what the bride and/or groom can expect?
Yes of course. I am available any day of the week and all times of
the day. I offer a lower rate to do the party during the week.
What was you most memorable party?
Last year when the bride announced to the girls over the
microphone "This has been the best night of my life!.....besides
meeting Gary! (the groom to be)
