“No doubt about it: MUSIC can MAKE or BREAK a wedding celebration. It’s the HEART and SOUL of a reception and can send your guests home with happy feet — or pained grimaces! The fact that you want to hire a talented band or fleet-fingered DJ is a given.” – By Lori Seto The Knot Band vs DJs for your wedding.

Don’t stress about a Band vs DJ for your wedding! WE HAVE BOTH!

“We would highly highly recommend Shelly if you want an UNFORGETTABLE night.” “DJ Shelly MADE our wedding. I’m not exaggerating…” “Our friends and family talk about how much fun they had and I know its because everyone DANCED ALL NIGHT!” “She truly went ABOVE and BEYOND in every way and was a blast to work with.” “Most of our guests shared with us they thought Dana and Mike’s wedding was truly the WEDDING EVENT OF A LIFETIME” – READ MORE REVIEWS.

We want you to GET TO KNOW USHora

We are a boutique style full service entertainment company. We understand that you have different needs. Your event should be unique. We want your guests to leave your event saying, “Wow! That was a WEDDING of a LIFETIME.” Click here to view videos of wedding’s we’ve hosted. Or, you can also read our REVIEWS.

How do we make sure that your event is a success?
We cater to you by listening to your requests, addressing your concerns, answering your questions, and offering you our expert advice. Our mission is to exceed your expectations and create memories that you and your guests will talk about for months or even years.

We are your “music-ologists”
What is a music-ologist? Well, we are using the term a little loosely, but what it means to us: is someone who knows how to create music playlists that work well with your particular event. In other words, we don’t just play the same music over and over again for every party. Based on your musical selections, your guest requests, and other information we collect from you, we are able to customize playlists specific to your event. We can even download music on the spot if given a request that is not in our music library.

What we are not.
We are not the “run of the mill” entertainment company! You will get to know and meet the disc jockey or MC for your event. Through personal meetings, emails, and phone conversations your DJ/MC will have a great understanding of your music selections and how you envision your affair. We do not just send the DJ we have on call that night!
