Your wedding can be legendary when you enlist Collective DJs, a boutique service based in Fallston MD, to create a personalized music soundtrack based on your unique music preferences. You'll benefit from our experience playing hundreds of weddings throughout Baltimore, DC and the surrounding areas and you can be sure your wedding music will be the topic of conversation for the days, weeks, and even years after the festivities have ended. Whether you're vision is an all-out dance party, a casual, chilled out vibe or something in-between, we can make it happen! You simply pick your package based on your needs and if your vision changes, we are super flexible. We make it easy to check the wedding music off your list and turn your 'to-do' into 'Ta-Da'!

    Highly recommend!

    "Carl Jr. is an absolutely incredible DJ, and I HIGHLY recommend him for any event, especially one that necessitates dancing! He made the whole process of planning our playlist so easy and executed our vision masterfully. From the first meeting with him, my wife and I had full trust in his ability to inter-mix the vast genres of music we requested. He was able to pick the perfect songs at the perfect time and kept the whole party dancing the ENTIRE night."

    We 100% recommend them!

    DJ Carl and Leni were recommended by our caterer. After reading their awesome reviews and getting to know Carl through a series of phone chats, we knew they were the ones to DJ for our wedding. They are responsive and professional yet friendly and personable at the same time. 5 weeks post wedding and our friends and family are still talking about our DJ and the music! At the last song of the night, at 11pm, at least 90 of our guests were still dancing away, then chanted "one last song" until they played one more dance song. We loved working with them, and our guests loved dancing with them, as did we. I can only recommend these guys in the highest.

    Stress-free/Non-stop dancing guaranteed

    My husband and I both love to dance, but had thought that we could pull off DJ-ing ourselves. A few months before our wedding, we came to our senses and emailed DJ Carl and it just so happened he had a cancellation for our exact wedding day a few days earlier. I believe that to be divine intervention because DJ Carl, without a doubt, was one of the best decisions we have ever made (besides getting married ;-D) DJ Carl clearly loves all music and doesn't have any judgements against your music picks. He was very organized and helped us realize how music is an integral part to a wedding reception--from your opening song, to the atmosphere during dinner, to the cake cutting, to your first dance. All of these moments are a chance to insert your personal touch and style on your wedding day. DJ Carl was super professional, organized, and flexible. He has multiple ways for customers to give him their 'Do's/Don't' list. We chose to use spotify playlists, which was easy for us. We were having trouble deciding on our first dance song, since it wasn't a typical love song. But DJ Carl motivated us to go with a song that we love and we are so grateful for his encouragement to go with our gut.
    On our wedding day, he arrived with ample time until the reception, so played music on his speakers for the happy hour, which was going above and beyond what he had to do. The music during the reception was light hearted and playful, which matched the emotions in the room. Once some of the tables were pulled away, the dancing commenced and didn't stop for 4 hours! It was great song after great song that kept everyone dancing long after they thought they would. DJ Carl knows how to read the room and perfectly times slow songs and fast songs. I don't think I have danced that much since my college years, but I just couldn't help myself. Til this day, our guests still say how much fun they had dancing at our wedding, which is such a compliment to DJ Carl's skills. We are so grateful for his expertise and could not have imagined our wedding without him. If you still wavering on whether or not to have a DJ, I cannot argue enough for hiring DJ Carl. He takes the stress away, so that you can focus on celebrating. DJ Carl is more than just a DJ--he's truly passionate about all music and puts his heart and soul into make sure everyone is having a good time. (Photography credit: Cameron Zegers Photography)

    Carl and Leni are both amazing to work with! I have worked with a lot of DJ's over the years and they have come to be my first go to. Not only are they professional on the back end (emails, phone calls, planning, etc.), they are so much fun the day of your wedding! They don't steal the show but they makes sure your wedding runs smoothly, on time and they keep the dance floor packed!

  • Bethany & Dan Photography Wedding Photographers

    We worked with Classic DJ's at a wedding in October of 2012. Even in the face of a very challenging reception timeline, and last minute changes, he was able to get the party started... THREE TIMES! The evening was such that the couple would want to dance for 20 minutes and then have everyone sit down for a performance. After each break in the flow of the dancing, Classic DJ's miraculously was able to revive the dancing each time. We were throughly impressed and got to benefit from it with a lot of great happy dancing photos.

    Carl is a talented deejay and a wonderful person. He runs a great party and is more knowledgeable about music than anyone I know. I highly recommend him.
