Freddie Swinney

Freddie, based in winston salem, where he has DJed for 15 years and has a multitude of weddings and private events under his belt, all before joining Dow Oak Events. As the son of two deaf parents, Freddie found solace in music at a young age and has a unique appreciation of music’s power to extend beyond the auditory into a fully sensory experience. Due to this appreciation, he DJs and hosts dance parties for the deaf by mixing and putting emphasis on mixing vibrations that they can actually feel through the subwoofers. In his down time, Freddie manages private dance parties of all sorts in the triad and beyond and is the ultimate addition to the Dow Oak team.

Here’s what people are saying about Freddie…


“Seriously, Dow Oak and specifically Freddie were INCREDIBLE. One month before the big day and our previously booked DJ BAILED! Dow Oak emailed back almost immediately after the inquiry and within two days we had banged out a contract and gotten the ball rolling- crisis adverted! I cannot say enough about the outstanding communication of the company! The week before the wedding Freddie reached out to firm up our plans and meet for a face to face, normal run of the mill stuff. NOTHING could have prepared us for what a rockstar he would be the day of. Not only was he a GREAT DJ and a super sweet human, he was valuable (and willing!) set of hands when it started pouring rain five minutes before the outdoor ceremony. He was flexible and extremely accommodating, he truly went above and beyond and we could not have done it without him. HIRE THESE PEOPLE, for real!” 


“The day was AWESOME! Josh and I both agree that you were one of our favorite vendor experiences throughout that day and Freddie in particular completely surpassed our expectations. He was able to not only roll with our (slightly abnormal) musical tastes, but he rolled with all the punches and surprises (enter the bagpiper that was unbeknownst to me) we threw at him. He did not just agree to do what we said, but he became an autonomous actor in the whole process, understanding what we wanted to hear based on our reactions, the little surprises we had for each other and for our guests, and on our previous discussions. At no point did we feel we needed to address preferences with him or ask for changes. He had seamless music transitions, a great presence at the reception, and was both professional and friendly. We would highly recommend him and your company to anyone in the future!”


“The entire Dow Oak team is amazing, and our wedding last night had guests rocking until the very end. I honestly can’t say enough good things about these guys. Erik and Freddie went the extra mile on literally everything. They always communicated promptly (which I love), and on the day of, they were there hours early and set-up, taking all the stress off me. Neither my husband nor I are big dancers, but Freddie picked the right music and totally got the vibe of the crowd and even got me out on the floor! I also recommend adding on the Photo Booth. It was so much fun, the guests liked having the photos and I like getting copies of all them. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Would do it all again in a heartbeat and I would 100% recommend Dow Oak.”


“DJ Freddie Fred recently lit up our dance floor at our wedding. I mean, everyone was on the dance floor. The variety of music appealed to everyone and he was very good about reading the audience. Everyone kept coming to us and telling us that our DJ was “fire” and to us, that was very important. Our guests had a fabulous time and so did we. Memorable, for sure. Would highly recommend him, he did a phenomenal job. Thank you Freddie!”
