First and foremost, we are a very Family Oriented company. Founded by a great couple, Jason and Laura, their dedication to being caring and understanding has created a very warm environment for everyone involved in our company. Most of our DJs have kids and families of their own. We feel that is what gives us a lot of our passion to providing great memories for all of those we entertain. We love providing our services for weddings because it allows us to be there at the very beginning of a family coming together as one. This is why our clients love us so much (as you can see in our reviews here), because we understand the importance of family and our clients are able to relate to us so much more. By being a very loving and caring company, we understand that any great family has to have dedication to one another in order for everyone to work together cohesively. This is where our team training comes in to play.

We Are A Teamdj meeting, dj training

Our owner Jason Kelley has drilled in to all of our DJs that we are all a team and we are only as strong as the weakest link. We think it comes from his prior military background. But, whatever the case, he sets an amazing training environment for everyone to come together. We share tips, ideas, brainstorm together, and keep each other on the very top of our game. The importance of coming together as a team has allowed all of our members to grow as individuals in their personal lives and even build more confidence in some. The sense of “being a part of something” is such an amazing feeling. We meet weekly whether we have gigs or not, we train, we discuss, and most of all we stay connected.

“We are a family, we are a team, we are a unified force. That is the way we operate and the reason for such wonderful success. It’s not me, it is us.” – Jason Kelley

A Wedding Professional’s Advice On Booking A Band Or A DJ

Want to have an AMAZING WEDDING?

______________________________________________________________________________________________

Are you on the fence of deciding to book either a Band or a DJ for your big day? Are you set on booking just a band? Here’s why you should consider doing BOTH!

First Thing’s First… Your Budget!

When creating your wedding budget, things can add up quickly and get you a little stressed out. It’s ok, that’s normal. You want to create a budget that works best for you. However, one thing you should definitely keep in mind is the Entertainment section of your budget. This is THE MOST IMPORTANT element of a Wedding! Here’s why…

1. You can have the most beautiful decorations, the most succulent food, at the most elegant venue. But, if your entertainment element is Sub Par or Unprofessional, your guests will simply have an “OK” time, or not a good time at all. And… if your DJ (or Band) plain old “sucks”, your guests will probably leave early or complain. Nobody wants to remember a bad wedding.

2. You can have chicken nuggets on paper plates in a back yard… and if your DJ (Or Band) ROCKS, you had the BEST WEDDING OF THE YEAR!

So please make sure you take your Entertainment Options seriously.

______________________________________________________________________________________________

Thinking of only booking a Band?

______________________________________________________________________________________________

If it’s in your budget to book a band for your wedding, you might want to consider adding a DJ as well. Not just any DJ, a Professional Wedding DJ. Most bands can definitely Jam Out and create a high energy vibe for you and your guests. However, many times the general flow of events throughout the evening, as well as the hosting aspect (keeping all of your guests informed and interested) falls to the way side. Bands have to take breaks throughout the evening, this is the perfect opportunity for a Professional DJ to keep your guests energized and having as much fun as possible.

BE AWARE: Some Wedding Bands will claim that they have a “DJ”. However this is, in most cases, simply not true. This idea of a “DJ” is simply a playlist put together to play during the bands breaks. This play list is played in some random order simply to play music.

SOLUTION: Hiring A Professional Wedding DJ that will be able to read the vibe of your guests and play music in a perfect order to keep them on the dance floor, as well as Beat-matching songs and playing the music that the band doesn’t have planned in their set list. We work closely with Wedding Bands and make sure we aren’t playing the songs that they plan on playing.

***These situations don’t happen with all bands. However, it has been our experience that Professional Bands LOVE when one of our Professional MC’s/DJ’s handles the Timeline and the Energy (essentially what we do best), so they can do what they do best. ROCK OUT!

______________________________________________________________________________________________

Can’t Decide Whether To Book A Band Or A DJ?

______________________________________________________________________________________________

As a Professional Wedding DJ company, it pains us to say that we can not recreate the feel of Live Music. There’s simply nothing like it. However, when it comes down to it, Most Bands can’t do what a DJ does either; such as: beatmatch songs together, emcee/host, switch songs abruptly, change play list on the fly, interact with Bride and Groom/Guests while music is playing, and more. Don’t get us wrong, we aren’t trying to discredit bands at all. The point of this is to provide the proper information for you in order to help you with your entertainment decision for one of the biggest days in your life.

Is a band in your budget? If so, DEFINITELY Book a Band. But also add a DJ to handle the other elements that are important for entertaining your wedding guests. Don’t just book a band (See Be Aware Above). Most bands will lower their price when working with a Professional Wedding DJ, because they will play less music and have way less responsibility for the evening. Same goes for a DJ, we definitely lower our rates when working with a band.

If a band is not in your budget, it’s simple… BOOK THAT DJ!
