DJ Style: We are low key DJs, as the focus of the day should be on you, not us. During dance time, we like to keep the energy high by mixing the music so everyone will want to party.
Limited music requests: No, but there is a certain amount of music that we can play. With the help of online planning, you can organize what songs are most important to you, that way we make sure to play it during your event.
Your DJ Attire: We like to match your wedding style, whether it is a black tie affair or just a rustic, low-key event. We don't want to stand out from your guests like a sore thumb.
Require client to provide songs: We purchase all the music we need to make the event run perfectly, unless certain songs cannot be found (as some tracks are not officially released).
DJs on team: We have 26 DJs that work for us.
Minimum DJ time: We have a 3 hour minimum for wedding receptions.
