Have Tips?

Call Omaha Crime Stoppers


Even at the ages of 20 and 21 Juan and Miguel Chavez know a hard day's work. The pair and a close friend started their own DJ business in high school and now three years later they are booking gigs most weekends.

"It's grown exponentially so much. It's been a lot of fun, a lot of setting image standards, trying to be as business professional as possible. We made a website, started doing payments online. It's been really exciting, especially being such a young age, a lot of learning and a lot of fun," said Juan Chavez, business owner.

But Saturday after DJing a graduation they faced an unexpected setback.

"It was one of our longer events so we started at 4 and ended at 1 am, the road trip was about an hour and a half," said Juan.

But when they got home Saturday night it was raining. They didn't want to get their equipment wet, so they decided to leave everything out in the car. Unfortunately when they came out the next morning it was all gone.

The car was stolen. To add to the problem, inside the car all of their equipment; thousands of dollars gone.

"It was really heart breaking that we built something from scratch and it got taken away from us," said Miguel Chavez, business owner.

But these young business owners aren't quitting.

"It's pretty much going to make us push through it all and keep our heads up," said Miguel.

Like good business men they said none of their customers have to worry. They will be keeping all of their bookings, ready to still bring the party.
