Getting ready for your big day

It has been said that the DJ or Entertainment you hire for your reception will be responsible for 80% of the success of your entire wedding day. Most people only allocate 5% of their entire budget to their reception entertainment. In a recent survey, 78% of brides, interviewed after their reception, indicated they would have invested more into their entertainment had they known the importance it had on their entire wedding day. You are not just spending money on music, you are investing in the success of your entire wedding day.

Because I don't believe in a cookie-cutter approach for your reception, it is best for us to discuss your dreams and desires either face-to-face or on the phone. Each reception is different and I provide personalized services to those requiring quality, professional entertainment. During your discussion you can ask plenty of questions and I will offer ideas which may make your wedding celebration better than you've already imagined. Because I dedicate myself to only ONE event PER DAY, I recommend you call me before your reception date is unavailable! If I am already booked, I will help you find another DJ entertainer.

"It's unwise to pay too much, but it's worse to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little money, that is all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought is incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do. The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot. It can't be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well to add something for the risk you run. And if you do that, you will have enough to pay for something better. There is hardly anything in the world that someone can't make a little worse and sell a little cheaper - and people who consider price alone are this man's lawful prey."
--John Ruskin (1819-1900)

Cocktail Music No problem! I will be set up and ready whenever you are. When your guests arrive I will be ready to play any type of music that will make your cocktail hour more enjoyable. Your guests are just arriving, and want to say hi, and talk the volume will allow this. I will also be ready to handle any introductions or special announcements.

Dinner Music When it's time to eat, I'm there and ready to tone it down. Whether you prefer a soft rock or mild jazz, I will be providing the background music for you, and your guests to enjoy while you eat and socialize. You will also have complete microphone access for prayers, toasts, or necessary announcements.

Dance Music When you're ready to dance.... We are too... I will watch and when it's appropriate the dancing will start. I always take requests and have no problems playing songs you have selected at the appropriate times. I will make any necessary announcements throughout the evening, and continue to provide your musical entertainment until your reception site closes for the evening. When planning your wedding reception, or any event, one of the most important elements is the entertainment. A wedding Disc Jockey can be one of the best ways to entertain your guests. The right DJ can really make your event come alive! I can provide entertainment that will keep your guests from leaving early and get them up and moving, dancing, mingling, and having fun.

Music While anybody can push a button and play music, it takes experience to balance the musical selection for different ages of your guests, ethnic and cultural backgrounds, along with good dancing songs versus listening music. This must all be done while keeping the taste and style of the bride and groom in mind. The balance of good dance music and proper volume control determines a large part of a successful wedding reception. It also relies on professional sound quality, and the DJ's ability to read and motivate your guests.

In ten years from now, you'll barely remember the cake, the flowers, the favours or the food. Both of you along with your guests, will however, long remember a beautiful and fun party atmosphere, along with a reception that was smooth and well planned.
