Most Brides (and some grooms) have thought about their wedding day for many many years, when it should be, how beautiful it will be, and how much fun it will be. One of the primary questions we ask our clients when we sit down with them is “What do you imagine for your wedding entertainment?” Most of them seem to not have even given it much thought. They simply say “We just want our guests to have fun”. DONE! That’s easy. However, we like to take it a step further and get to know our clients in order to create their wedding entertainment based on their imagination. Thus begins our follow up questions in order to get to know more about general taste and personality traits. These are just a few of the reasons our clients rave about what we do.
The entertainment factor for your wedding should be held in very high regard. We are sure you’ve heard the phrase “A DJ will make or break your wedding”. This is completely true. The quality you should expect in your wedding dj shouldn’t be something that you simply decide on (Especially Not Based On Price!). Do your research! Find out about backgrounds, experience, previous employment, etc. Your DJ should be just as professional as they are talented. Without doing your research, you may be gambling with the actual outcome of what you’ve imagined your big day to be.
Over the past 5 years, our company has been involved in thousands of weddings. We aren’t just a DJ company, we are constantly working within the wedding industry. We also operate a Chair Cover company, a Photo Booth Company, manage and operate two banquet halls, and as of recently we are beginning our Catering Company. Book That DJ has recently opened a branch in Findlay/Lima and we are working on opening another branch in Chicago. We have seen it all, not just high energy and fun weddings, but the more formal and reserved weddings as well. Every bride and groom is different and we treat each and every wedding we are involved in with the uniqueness that each couple exemplifies. So when it comes down to your big day, it’s all about what you imagine. We can create whatever feel/vibe/energy you want for your wedding. Our DJs specialize in creating a very fun atmosphere.
We here at Book That DJ bring a level of personalization, expertise, attention to detail, and creativity that is unlike any other wedding dj or wedding dj company you will find. We have talents that most DJ companies simply don’t. That’s because we aren’t just “Weekend Warriors”. Meaning, we don’t just do weddings on the weekends and go through the motions. We won’t just send a “DJ” to your wedding with an itinerary. Our company also DJs throughout the week at several locations. And we train every week, during the week.
Our DJs are constantly learning new ways to transition songs, program songs, and get even more creative. Our office is equipped with a set up for us to showcase to our clients what we do, as well as utilize during our more informational DJ meetings. We manage two banquet halls in the area and we utilize those spaces for practicing set ups, microphone work, sound perfection, and more. You won’t get an out of practice DJ, or a fresh DJ, or a DJ that just “fills in” from our team. We are exactly that, a team. Each member being pushed just as much as the next to ensure our company maintains a level of service that will blow you away. This is why we are such an exclusive company.
After meeting qualifications in order to be considered to represent the Book That DJ team, our DJs then go through a rigorous and extensive training period before they are even granted the opportunity to handle any event. We train, we quiz, we work together, we push and challenge each other to become even better aw what we do. Imagine a sports team and the skill sets they develop and sharpen throughout training camp in order to produce results for game day. Even throughout the season, we still train.
We get asked by fellow professionals, future brides & grooms, and even people planning a special event, “When should we decide to book that dj?” Our answer is always the same, “RIGHT AWAY!”.
There are a few reasons why you should book that dj immediately and here they are:
What that means is that we are limited on the number of DJs we have on our team. The reason for this is because it is hard to find the perfect people to represent our brand as well as trust handling some of the biggest and most important days of your lives. We always keep one DJ open to ensure that in case of emergency, you will still have someone from our crew be at your event handling everything correctly.
It goes without saying that entertainment is one of the most (if not THE Most) important factor for any event. You can have a beautiful venue, perfect decorations, great food and drink options… But, if your guests are bored, or if they don’t know what is going on, or if your DJ just plain old sucks, your event wont be anything like it could have been. Just as well, you can have a basic backyard bar-b-q with plastic place settings and if your DJ is awesome, your event ROCKED!
So if you’re planning a Wedding, Birthday Party, Surprise Party, Holiday Party, Corporate Event, Etc… BOOK THAT DJ TODAY!
We do more than just DJ weddings! We make sure everyone around us has FUN FUN FUN!!! In this article you’ll get to experience a little bit of the fun we had this past weekend in the Greater Toledo Area! We had two birthday parties, yes two, the final one was a Super Hero Party complete with Super Hero’s! We talk about Rockin the 2014 Toledo Holiday Parade. Then we finish off our weekend and this article with the wonderful work that Nick Amrhein is doing for Local Veterans! Including our very own Jason Kelley – Marine Corps Veteran. So please enjoy this wonderful fun. We sure did.
We had the pleasure of DJing a surprise 50th Birthday Party at the Monclova Community Center in Monclova Ohio. Chuck thought he was going to an anniversary party for a great couple of friends. Turns out it was a Surprise 50th birthday party. He was definitely surprised to see all of his friends and family gathered in one place to celebrate his birthday. Even old high school friends of his flew in all the way from Florida and Texas. His wife took to the planning and not only decided to Book That DJ, but they also had a delicious Chili Dogs spread Catered from Tony Packo’s. And the desserts were amazing!!! Not just cake, they had cookies, cupcakes, brownies, and more! We always love a delicious sweet spread.
With little sleep from Friday Night festivities, our team got up earlier than usual and headed to downtown Toledo in order to prepare for the Holiday Parade! We had a general idea for how we wanted our float to look. But when we got there it was already decorated. Thanks to Nicole from The Event Center, it was way better than we even imagined!!!
The Toledo Holiday Parade 2014 was Book That DJ’s First!
All that was left to do was to set up the DJ Equipment! We got all set up and ready to rock! Then we just had to wait for the parade to begin. There were a lot of other floats and groups around us waiting for the parade to start. So what did we do? Well, we started warming them up! We don’t have to wait for the parade to start for the fun to start! From the news crew at 13abc to the National Guard, and even the workers from the Toledo Blade, we had everyone dancing! Then when the parade began, we just kept the energy going all the way through downtown! All the spectators seemed to liven up as we rolled past them. “WE ROCKED THE WHOLE CITY!!!”
We had the whole Kelley Crew out for this very memorable occasion! All the daughters and even both Brothers!! Nicole from the Event center had her family on the float too. We turned the entire float in to one big dance party to energize the city! We all know kids have so much energy! The cold didn’t even seem to matter anymore, it became all about bring joy, happiness, and fun to all those who were able to experience this wonderful parade!
We Weren’t done yet!
The theme was set, the equipment was set up, all that was left was to wait for the guests to arrive. We not only got to DJ this wonderful Birthday Party, but we also set up our Photo Booth. That’s right the amazing photo booth from I Got Framed Photo was able to capture more than 250 photo booth pictures of all the little kids dressed as Super Hero’s as well as their parents. Our photo booth is completely customizable! We have almost unlimited creativity with our graphic design crew at the helm. All of the images came out high quality, and we were even able to lower our booth to a level that all the kids could enjoy!
No Super Hero Theme Party would be complete without the help of actual Super Heroes! That’s right the parents of the birthday boy hired 3 super heroes to come entertain all of the guests and it was EPIC!!! They brought Leonardo from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Spiderman, and even Batman!!! The super heroes showed the kids some great super hero moves and tactics. They were a big hit! We highly recommend hiring some professional super heroes for your next birthday party, as well as our amazing DJ Service! We were able to cue up the perfect songs to match the fun they were having! Check out the video below!

WE LOVE YOU ALL!!!
Working so many weddings every year as a professional wedding dj, managing 2 banquet halls, operating our photo booth, and providing chair covers for weddings, it’s very rare that we get to attend any as Guests. But, it just so happened we received an invite this year to a wedding on a date that we had nothing booked. So we were excited to be able to make an adventure out of it.
As a wedding DJ I want to dress accordingly so I blend in with the wedding party or the wedding as a whole, so I don’t stick out like a sore thumb. So as a guest I had to take a different approach. I’ve seen it all from the jeans and t-shirt guy to the too over the top guy with a full three piece suit and a fedora. I knew I had to find a comfortable medium that is appropriate for me to blend in with the guests. So I decided to get a new suit fitted with all the appropriate accessories to achieve the successful classy guy look. A nice simple patterned suit with neutral colors so as to not stand out too much but just enough to be slightly noticed. A bright white pattern tie that pops. When a bride and groom invite you to enjoy their big day with them, you want to make sure you look your best. At least that is what we believe.
As we journeyed along our 9 hour drive into the UP, the most important thing I wanted to prepare for was to not be overly critical and get in to “work mode”. Knowing that there are some very bad wedding DJs out there, I worried that the night would not flow well and I would get sucked in to analyzing it. So my fiancé and I said we weren’t going to talk about work or the wedding aspects until afterwards in our hotel room as to not spoil any potential fun we may have.
The night before (Friday) there was a big Family Event for my Fiances Father, so he hired me to DJ as well as set up our photo booth. The event ran late in to the evening and we had to still tear down then go home and finish packing. With very little sleep we woke early with excitement to start our “Road Trip”. We decided to take turns driving every two hours. Our GPS put us at the hotel about an hour before the cocktail hour. This allowed us just enough time to check in, unpack, and get ready. However, to our surprise (since we didn’t do much planning), as we got closer the GPS and our iPhones dropped an hour off of our trip! We hadn’t taken in to account that we would be in a different time zone. Yay, just enough time for a power nap before the festivities.
It was definitely hard at times to not analyze certain aspects of the evening. However, we pushed through them and realized that those things don’t even matter to most guests. Just relaxing and simply being a wedding guest was so much fun. We made sure we were on the dance floor as much as possible, enjoyed the food so much, and even had some drinks with the bride and groom. When people asked about how our business is going, we made sure to keep it brief and not get in to any in depth conversations. Before we left, I congratulated the DJ on a job well done and briefly explained what we do. I made sure to wait till we were about to leave before I mentioned it because I didn’t want to make him nervous or have him think about whether I would be critiquing his work. He did a wonderful job and I actually learned some different things to incorporate in to what we do. The biggest thing I learned as a wedding guest is that it definitely goes by much faster than I thought. Before we knew it, we were in a cab on the way back to the Hotel for some after party cocktails.
Now back in the car for the long long journey home. We hope you enjoyed our article. While you’re here, check out our article on how to Invest Your Time And Avoid Wedding Nightmares.
