Dale “Deej” Lafayette

Empowering individuals, communities and businesses in free enterprise and development of unique identity, rich media and creative online solutions - since 1998

In the late 1980s, Dale “Deej” Lafayette's one-man art show, “Kozmik Thang”, was a hit at SF Bay Area art galleries, cafes and coffee houses. During these exhibitions, he was approached to manage, and eventually take over, a northern California karaoke club scene newspaper.

Co-founding ad agency/publishers VisionMagik Multimedia Group (1992-97), Dale re-tooled the newspaper and went national. The result was the award-winning quarterly music trade magazine Karaoke & DJ USA – whose growing staff of editors and contributors included noted author, music authority, DJ and karaoke virtuoso, Ben Fong-Torres.

Then, after five years of endless deadlines, traveling across the US as sponsor and speaker at industry events and getting very little sleep, Dale took a needed break from publishing. This to spend more time as a popular MC, DJ and entertainer — regularly booking gigs at some of the most sought-after parties, events and venues.

During this same period, Advanced Marketing & Entertainment was born: a natural fusion of three decades of creativity, skills and experience. Dale's expanded company quickly found new multimedia challenges, including working with documentary filmmaker Ben Thum on the production of the acclaimed 2000 sports documentary, Alley Cracker: The Story Of Handball (broadcast on ESPN), followed by several outstanding and successful marketing packages for clients.

In 2001, AME Studios announced expansion to online marketing services, moving forward in scope and developing innovative new in-house and client projects. In 2009, The AME Network expanded to add and manage domain registration and hosting services via AME WebXpress, and today, AME continues to grow an impressive portfolio of online assets, media services and client networks.
