Our wedding DJs are a talented team of performers who each have their own unique sound and style. We want to match you with the DJ from our team that will best fit your style and whose personality will click with yours! You can find additional information about each of our skilled and talented DJs below and learn more about each of their personalities and past experiences as mobile DJs. Most importantly you can check out some live demos of their mixing styles and abilities! You will find that the demos below encompass a wide range of genres and styles of music. These demos are meant to show the extent of our wedding DJ's skills, and the range of music that our mobile DJs can play. At your event, there will be a very age diverse group of guests, and during your event we will try to incorporate a wide range of music from various decades and genres so as to appease everyone. For your event, your assigned mobile DJ will work with you to customize and tailor the music for your event so it is a reflection of your tastes and preferences. Your DJ will work with you to determine the performance style you prefer for your event as well as the types of music. Keep in mind these demos are live recordings as opposed to studio tracks.
Thanks to the universal church of the interwebs, all of our DJs are ordained ministers and should your officiant get sick, no show, or otherwise be prevented from getting to your wedding, your DJ can fill in and marry you at a moments notice. Consider that just a little extra peace of mind for you on your wedding day!
