Frequently Asked Questions

DJ and Planning.

Yes. Every one of our DJs has a minimum of 5 years wedding experience. Most have more. Our DJs also act as your emcee and we also offer professional percussionists. All our staff are true performers experienced in wedding formalities, customs and procedures. We book more weddings than any other type of event.

Yes. Wedding DJs are unique in that they have to be knowledgeable in all genres of music. Our DJs carry their entire music library with them to every wedding.

Being able to keep a crowd engaged is about paying attention, reading the crowd, anticipating what to play next and always being one step ahead. If a song doesn’t work, we immediately start mixing out of it and get something on that gets people back on the floor. Because of the sheer number of weddings our DJs have performed at, keeping a dance floor full is like second nature to them. A fun dance floor means a great wedding reception that everyone will remember for years to come.

Yes. Being a great emcee is equally as important as being a great DJ and a true professional wedding DJ has no problem covering both roles. It’s actually better to have your DJ be your emcee for the simple reason that it’s a one-person job. Our DJs know when and what to say. We emcee your entire wedding including your grand entrance, formal song introductions, special dance introductions and more. We speak clearly, project into the mic and keep a smooth flow of events. We don’t overuse the mic and are never cheesy. Never pay extra for a separate emcee unless you’re looking for someone to talk a lot which most couples don’t want at their wedding.

Yes. Our Online Entertainment Planner is where all our couples provide their wedding day information such as music requests, timeline, wedding party names and more. Most couples pick out a handful of songs they want to hear and leave the rest to us to read your crowd and keep the dance floor active all night long. Your DJ will schedule a final meeting with you the week of your wedding to finalize all your music choices, details and plans.

No. Other than their formal songs (i.e. grand entrance, first dance, etc.), some couples don’t pick out any songs and we’re fine with that. We’re experts at mixing together different genres of music that makes sense to your guests so that they can have an amazing night of dancing and fun.

Yes. Take a peek at our team.

With our online entertainment planner. We have created multiple playlists for you to provide your requests. Our online entertainment planner is one of the keys to our success. It keeps everything organized and is extremely user-friendly. It’s where our couples communicate all their wedding day entertainment details to us including music requests, timeline, wedding party names and more. It’s an amazing tool that comes standard with our wedding DJ package. We create a free account for every inquiry so you can see first-hand how it works with no obligation.

Yes. Unless you don’t want us to. We only play requests that make sense to your crowd.

Our online entertainment planner, which comes standard in our wedding DJ package, has a music section for you to customize to your liking. It includes playlists for the ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner and dancing. Some couples don’t enter any music and we’re fine with that. If you decide to have us choose your cocktail and dinner music we usually go with Crooners (Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, etc.), smooth jazz, Motown, etc.

Those versions are for nightclubs. This is your wedding and we make sure everyone is dancing to the version they all know and love. Oh, and btw, we always play the radio-friendly versions of songs. No f-bombs here!

Add-ons and Extra Equipment.

Uplights are individual light units that sit on the floor and are usually placed along the perimeter of the room pointing up to highlight the wall, column, arch, ceiling, etc. Our uplights use LED technology and are programmable to the color of your choice. Take a peek at our uplights gallery to see how you can accent or transform your room to match the atmosphere and vibe you’re looking for.

Our live percussionists play during the open dancing. They play along by following the DJ’s lead. They have a couple stand-up bongos, snare drums and cymbals. It’s very interactive and fun.
