Your Wedding & Our Stylistic Approach
We like to consider ourselves to be the DJs who are most in-tune with the modern Bride & Groom.
Being contemporary-minded, we feel we can identify with current wedding styles & trends. We will not be playing any of those corny, dated - cheeseball songs! During the open dance set, we open with the classics - all the great R&B and 60's Rock hits that will keep the baby-boomers on the dance floor. We ensure that these tunes also "speak" to our young generation, too! Progressively through the night, we work through your chosen song requests, grouping them into mixable chunks. We want the sets to have a sense of rhythm, finding tunes that have "connective tissue" so the ebb and flow of the performance lures all of your guests to the dance floor!
High-End Sound & Intelligent Lighting
What good is a DJ without a quality sound and lighting system? Our package provides a crystal-clear sound system and fully programmed LED Lighting production that not only makes the DJ sound great, but also adds that desired "WOW" factor.

Budget Planning & Keys to Your Party's Success!
Planning your overall wedding budget and allocating those funds can understandably be stressful. Have no fear! We are certainly able to help!
When you ask people about what they remember the most from a wedding, the most common response you'll hear back is - “How Great the Party Was!” The two largest factors that go into creating a memorable party are the food/beverage selection and the entertainment. So it is EXTREMELY important that when budgeting a wedding, to allocate properly for top quality entertainment.
In complete honesty, there are many decent "B" level wedding DJs in the New England area that will quote in around the $600-$750 range for a peak-season Saturday evening. But, the truly top-tier "A" level DJs, that are guaranteed to take your event to the next level price out over $1,000, at times as high as $3,000! Take professionalism, years of experience, and "inclusions" into consideration when weighing out price differentials. Most importantly, do not forget to include your DJs personality into your decision-making process...it may make a world of difference!
Speaking further on this, one of the biggest budgetary items planned for a wedding is the "Food" and other decorative pieces. This is not to diminish the importance of a phenomenal meal – we’ve certainly had some amazing dinners at weddings we’ve attended. Although, consider the cost of your entertainment on a level playing field with the other major wedding expenses. Take into account that most plated-meals will cost $70, $80, or even up to $100 per person. Then consider the cost of great entertainment around the $2000 mark. Dividing that total by an average sized wedding - 150 guests - and that equals to under $15 per person for the entertainment! That's a huge difference with the DJ being less than ONE QUARTER the cost in most cases....clearly visible, once the math is on the table!
Finding the RIGHT DJ for Your Wedding
Now after dialing-in your budget, there are (3) areas often overlooked, that will greatly help you compare, filter, and ultimately narrow down the options that are present. These are the DJ’s dedication to the "Three P's". Performance. Is your DJ energetic and extrinsic? Does he know how to make the party truly move, no matter the demographics of your group? Production. Does your DJ utilize top of the line, reputable equipment? Does your DJ have an understanding of how to get the most from his gear, creating a sonically-pleasing evening? Professionalism. Will your DJ commandeer positive relationships with your other important vendors? Does your DJ have the ability to "roll with the punches" and execute no matter what the situation?
Our focus is not solely on playing music... it's about being your host for the evening, managing the energy level effectively, making sure our sound levels are evenly set, our lighting is programmed with colors that capture the mood of the song, and ultimately ensuring that everyone is partying all night long. With our holistic approach to events, we offer and deliver amazing results for every single one of our couples!
