Why Us?
I first connect with the bride and groom and make sure that I know precisely how they envision their wedding day going. After all, it's their day, and it's a day that happens to have -- even the ones that go smoothly -- a lot of pressure leading up to it (too much pressure for one day, I say, but I haven't come up with a solution to that one yet).

Once I have all of the information that I need, such as whether or not there will be a garter toss or money dance, etc., what songs they would like to hear (and not hear!), I make sure that I have at least one person that I can connect with on the actual day of the wedding. Someone who is preferably not the bride or groom that knows exactly what the bride and groom want and how they want it.

That person is usually a coordinator, but a lot of times is a friend or relative (by the way, if it's a big wedding, I highly recommend staying away from having friends or family members run the show -- trust me, it's better to hire a coordinator for those or let me and the banquet facility manager handle the timeline).

Totally Prepared
I am in contact with the bride and groom as well as the designated coordinator prior to the wedding day just to make sure we're all in sync. I arrive at the wedding totally prepared, usually two hours prior to the scheduled start time.

During the wedding reception (I can also perform the ceremony music), I work with the designated coordinator to make the day special. Since I act as master of ceremonies, announcing each portion of the day, I make sure that everyone involved in the wedding is prepared. For example, I will let the photographer, videographer, bride and groom, etc. know well in advance when I'll be playing the first dance song or when we're getting ready to do the garter and bouquet toss. Doing things this way ensures that all involved are ready to go (you wouldn't want your photographer loading a disc or film in his or her camera while you are beginning your first dance as husband and wife, right?).

Enjoy Your Day
I only interrupt the bride and groom to let them know when they have to be doing something (cake cutting, etc.). Other than that, it's my philosophy that the bride and groom shouldn't even wear a watch. They should just enjoy the day and their guests and leave the details up to me and their wedding day coordinator. All of the hard work is done and it's time to have fun and enjoy the day!

You'd think that the philosophies I've written about above would be a natural thing for wedding DJs, but you might be very surprised (not a good thing to be on your wedding day, in my experience).

The iPod vs. Professional DJ
If you are considering hiring a friend-of-a-friend who happens to DJ on the side ("Hey, my cousin has an iPod -- save your money, dude!") or you are hiring a nightclub DJ ("How exactly do you beat mix Elton John with Ella Fitzgerald? In fact, who is Ella Fitzgerald?") with little or no wedding reception experience, you are rolling the dice on how well your event will be managed and coordinated.

An iPod might save you money (of course, you have to rent a P.A. system to project the music and have all songs pre-loaded), but it can't organize an event and keep things on track throughout the day. An iPod can't make quick decisions or notify the other wedding vendors when the cake cutting is about to begin. (See this YouTube video about using an iPod for wedding entertainment -- do a search there are plenty more videos where that came from)

There are many club and party DJs out there, but if they don't regularly work weddings, they may not have the breadth of music or the experience required to perform for an audience made up of ages ranging from 1 to 101. I've been performing as a professional DJ and MC since 1987 and have music that dates back to the turn of the last century all the way through to the current Billboard Hot 100 charting singles today. Not only do I have that span of musical genres, but I know the songs and more importantly, I know the right time to play them to create a fun atmosphere for you and your guests.

No Unsightly Cables or Banners
we believe in making sure our customer has the event they were hoping for. We are not about self-promotion, so you won't find large banners with our logo at your wedding. All of our equipment is black so it won't clash with your wedding decor - no matter what the color. Our equipment is set up behind a professional facade so your guests don't have to view sound equipment or cables hanging all over the place.


A Professional DJ Guarantees Your Wedding Is A Success
True enough these days, anyone can play music, but a Professional DJ does a lot more than that -- as you've probably figured out by this point of the web page. A Professional DJ not only has a wide range of music from every era, but knows the music and knows how and when to use it. Every reception is different and if a DJ can hit on a few song sets that makes everyone in attendance happy and dancing while making the day's events run smoothly, you'll have fond memories of your special day...and so will your friends and family. My professional reputation banks on it.

    Excellent DJ and MC services

    I had DJ John from Urban DJs at my cocktail hour and wedding reception in September 28, 2019. John was always very responsive. When you text, call, and email him he always answers quickly! He did a beautiful job at setting up my uplighting and custom monogram. Additionally, John was great at MCing and gathering my guest for my wedding festivities.

    DJ Johnny is the best!

    DJ Johnny is amazing! We had some last minute changes and he was super flexible, he kept the party going all night long. He also kept a very clear line of communication so I felt comfortable reaching out to him with any questions or concerns. Thank you Johnny, you made my wedding night one to remember.
