Serve First

For as long as I can remember I have been serving communities for the purpose of creating positive results for people. I am passionate about sharing my skills, knowledge and experience so that everyone can succeed. The more success I see in others the more drive I have to continue. When I was a teenager […]

Emcee Services

What song is most played on your playlist? How does it make you feel when you hear it?

Playing music has been a passion of mine for over 15 years. Although my mother is and my grandfather was a musician, I never took the time to master an instrument like them. When I first got experience working as DJ I knew that was more my style. Having the option to play all types, styles and genres of music really allows me to connect with a wider range of people.

I have had the pleasure of providing music services in many different areas and at hundreds of events. This list includes schools and graduations, weddings, reunions and family gatherings, clubs and cabarets, corporate parties as well as community events and fundraisers. The fact that music is literally at my fingertips gives me the option to be versatile. My position as a DJ is not to tell everyone what he or she needs to listen to but rather find out what they need and give it to them.

In addition to providing music service, professional public speaking is also something I am proud to offer. Not everyone has the ability to connect with a crowd when speaking in front of a room but I will take that challenge any day of the week. By speaking with the crowd or audience I am able to get them engaged and discover what it is they want. Over the years I have hosted events for thousands of people and not once has anyone thrown tomatoes at the stage. Something I can be proud of.

As one person I can physically be in one location at a time. However, by training and coaching others to provide a great service I can connect with many more all at once. For this reason, I offer a DJ and Professional Emcee Program that teaches others to master these skills. If you or anyone you know would like to learn some new skills and offer a service to their community I have a great option available.

So, now that you know about me, how can I help you? Please contact me by entering your name and email below and we will get a connection started.

Community Building and Fundraising

Community Building and Fundraising

Would you like to engage the people in your community? Is there a purpose, goal or dream you are trying to achieve?

Building a stronger community is what really drives me. I spend time volunteering, fundraising, hosting events and motivational speaking. It all started growing up in a small town in Saskatchewan called Bengough (pronounced Ben-goff). There I became active in community events as I followed my parents lead. As my community succeeded, so did I.

I have been an active volunteer in Saskatoon with Special Olympics for the past 6 years and counting. Specifically, I coach softball for the Tigers team. Although I started as a coach I knew there was more I could offer so I started fundraising on behalf of the organization. For the past 3 years I have had the pleasure of raising more than $45,000 at an event called Slugfest Charity Slo-pitch. This event will warm your heart, as people not only participate but have an opportunity to meet some of the Special Olympics athletes. Other groups and organizations I have worked with include Kidney Foundation of Canada, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Canadian Transplant Association and Families Fighting Cancer. Bringing everyone together without judgment breaks barriers and brings happiness.

All communities, groups, teams and organizations need leaders. I believe that molding minds early in life is a key to finding leaders so I offer motivational speaking and programming to youth. This may apply to schools or sports teams for example and I do offer support one on one as well. Giving young minds the proper conditioning plus the power to communicate and cooperate truly makes our future brighter.

Do you need someone to kick-start a committee and make difference in the lives of many? I take great pride in organizing successful events, motivating and inspiring others. I want to offer this service to you. If you feel I can help you and your community please enter your contact information below. Together we will build a stronger community.

Corporate Team Building and Leadership

Corporate Team Building and Leadership

What would it mean for your business to have a high functioning team? What team(s) are you a member of?

My past and present experience as a member of championship teams is something I love to share with the world. My most common experiences growing up were that of sports teams. As I grew older, moved away from home and entered the work force I found new team opportunities. Overall, all teams function highest when they follow one simple principle. That is, mission first, team second and individual third.

In order to have a championship team everyone must have the intention to reach for and achieve a common mission. A mission statement is a brief description that explains the fundamental purpose of a business or organization. It explains why that business exists and what its purpose is. By having all members of the team act accordingly towards the mission statement, its purpose is being met. As a result, all individual's needs are accounted for.

Is there anything better than having employees that want to come to work and customers that want to work with you? I proudly offer my services to companies for the purpose of building a culture that attracts employees, generates leads and closes offers. Corporate coaching and programming through workshops, seminars and team building activities are my most common forms of service. I am happy to come to your business and work with you on site or help you plan a retreat to get people out of the office. Whatever the plan, we will make it together so that it meets your needs.

If you feel one or more people within your organization can benefit from some additional leadership training I have you covered. Sometimes the best option is not always to get everyone in the same room but rather modify how your current leaders are addressing the team. I have learned from some of the best teachers and leaders in business. All information I have and even some of my contacts will be made available to you.

Do you feel your company, business or organization would benefit from anything I have to offer? If so, please enter your contact information below. Let's connect and get started on building you a championship team.

Personal Development

Personal
Development

Do you have goals, dreams or aspirations that you have not achieved?

This busy world we live in often dictates the way we live our lives but should it?

My friends, clients and those that follow me often tell me I am the most positive person they know. Yes it's true that I spend each and every day seeking the positive facts of life but it wasn't always like that for me. To be truthful, there were and still are times when it is very difficult to stay positive. The point is that we acknowledge whatever it is that feels negative, learn from it and make adjustments to correct.

I have spent 18 years of my life supporting people and helping them live healthy physically, emotionally and mentally. My first experience came working with people living with special needs as a camp counselor at Easter Seals for the Saskatchewan Abilities Council. I always liked supporting people but this experience honestly changed my life. Much of my skills and training since then comes from my time as a direct care support worker and home care manager. I take great pride in getting to know people, understanding what it is they want and helping them get it.

My personal development programs will take you on a journey that will help you learn more about yourself and create positive changes in your life. Inside of everyone there is a big powerful person, able to achieve great accomplishments, and I will help you do that. Controlling our thoughts is the first step to finding our true happiness in life.

I owe a great deal of praise to my coaches and mentors, as it is their guidance that has brought me to where I am today. In particular I thank Blair Singer. He helped me believe in myself and overcome any doubts I had. It was his teaching, support and programs that have catapulted me into the leader and teacher that I am today. My service to you comes in both one on one and group coaching.

If you want to become the person that you know you are capable of being, please contact me by entering you information below. If you know of someone that could benefit from a coach please have them connect with me. I know I have a gift in helping people achieve great things and all I want to do is share that gift. Contact me today and let's get started!

June 2016 Sound, Music and Emcee Services

You’re a ball of positive and fun energy and I really think your service of tunes and humour really amped up our walk this year. You engaged with the participants and got them all excited to be there and feel the energy! It was the best walk we’ve had in many years!

Thanks again Steve!

Chelsey, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation
Steve was an amazing DJ for my wedding and I would highly recommend him! Our dance floor was jam-packed all night long with everyone dancing their hearts out. We had older aunts, younger cousins, friends and family members all sweating up a storm as they rocked out to his amazing song choices. My husband and I both received tonnes of compliments from our guests saying how impressed they were with Steve and the way he played perfectly to the crowd. I too danced my heart out and had an absolute blast! If you want your guests to have an amazing time at your wedding, hire Steve, you will not regret it.

You were phenomenal! Every parent that I spoke with loved the music selection, the volume and the feel of the event.

I wouldn’t change a thing! I will definitely recommend you to anyone that I know that is putting on any type of event and I would be proud to do the same if you would like me to pass on my thoughts to any perspective clients. You obviously have fun at what you are doing and it shows! Awesome job.

June 2015 Wedding in Waskesiu

Our wedding guests could not stop raving about what an amazing DJ Steve is - he kept the dance going until the very end! Steve also emcee'd for our wedding, and took our suggestions and ran with them. He was so funny and natural as an emcee that our guests thought he knew us personally. Steve is extremely professional and great to work with.

He provided excellent service and all we had to do was let him into the hall - he took care of the rest! He wanted input from us about music we wanted to hear, but he also made sure to play music that had guests of all ages tearing up the dance floor all night! We were thoroughly impressed with Steve and our guests were too. We will not hesitate to recommend Steve to anyone who needs a DJ in the future!

June 2015 Wedding

Carter and I were high school sweethearts, so it's safe to say that I had been dreaming of our wedding day for a very long time! We had seen Steve play at Carter's cousins wedding and were ecstatic when he agreed to take on our wedding on such short notice!  Right from the get go communication with Steve was so simple. He was easy to get a hold of and always promptly replied to any questions I had. Steve did the music for our outdoor ceremony (which was a huge relief to this bride) and the reception. He was at the acreage early to set up, to help my mother who was singing get settled and then to play the prelude music for the guests while they waited.  The ceremony was quite large but everyone could hear exactly what was going on!  At the reception the dance floor was never empty! We had people of all ages up dancing all the time. He played music from a variety of genres and the sound level was always appropriate.  He was great with interacting with the crowd he was charming and humorous. Steve was always willing to respond to any request Carter and I had throughout the night. He played till the bar closed, and then took down his setup on his own time after everyone had left. Steve was an absolute joy to work with during the wedding planning stages and a blast to have at the wedding.  I HIGHLY recommend Steve for any function.  This simple testimonial will not even come close to showing how truly grateful we are for the amazing experience we had at our wedding, all thanks to Steve!

November 2016 Awards Night

Steve Kushman Productions provided us with an audio system and DJ service for our Hollywood themed enrollment event for Girl Guides in Martensville this fall. The audio system worked nicely for our awards and enrollment program and the DJ service was engaging and energetic. Having dance floor lights included at no extra charge was a bonus as it did create a fun atmosphere for the girls. With the help and support of Steve K we were able to provide a memorable experience for all the girls and their families at a reasonable price that fit our budget. We would recommend the service of Steve Kushman Productions to anyone looking to host an event.

October 2016 Halloween Family Dance

Steve Kushman Productions has provided the Silverwood Parent Council with a DJ service for more than 5 years in a row for the family dance on Halloween. This relationship first started with a last minute call when our organization needed a DJ. Luckily Steve was able to accommodate our need on the same day and we have booked his service in advance ever since. He plays appropriate music for all ages and is regularly on the microphone getting the crowd engaged. Each and every year the children look forward to DJ Mr. K coming to entertain them.
