We service couples from all different ages and walks of life. We can’t assume that the same playlist is going to appeal to everyone- because it won’t. Maybe we’re DJing for a groom that is 18-years-old and is getting married before he’s deployed. Perhaps we’re employed by a couple who is 65; reunited high school sweethearts. We’ve had couples that are self-proclaimed “metal heads”. We’ve also entertained classically trained musicians.
How do we reflect the clients’ personality and musical taste? What do we do if we need to appeal to the bride’s 10-year-old niece and the groom’s 80-year-old grandmother at the same time? What if the requests range from Big Band Swing to today’s Club Hits? How do we get everyone celebrating and on the dance floor?
The key is PERSONALIZATION and finding songs that BRIDGE together different genres. Most other companies will send out their DJs with a pre-set list of music and advise them not to deviate. We get to know the couple and their guests’ musical preferences and will play songs throughout the evening based upon that insight. We discuss key points such as:
We specialize in “trending”. This is when we observe you and your guests to see what songs and genres of music they are most liking. We then select the next song based on what your guests are enjoying the most. Also, we do not allow for “dead air”. Songs will effortlessly flow from one to the next unless it has been requested that we pause to make a special announcement.
In order to keep everyone enjoying their evening, we select what we call “bridge songs”. The bridge songs will tie together different eras or genres by having a similar rhythm, chord structure, style, or even a phrase or lick in common. Because we are educated in music history and are musicians, we can recognize these elements and find ways to transition styles uninterruptedly.
It’s your event- incorporate your style! Our motto is “A Personalized Approach to Your Unique Event”. Testimonial from our bride, Ana Maria: “Niki provided a guide for me to fill out ahead of time with cues for music, speaking roles, ambiance desired during different parts of the day, etc. It made planning the ceremony a breeze! I was able to choose from a HUGE, but not overwhelming, library of songs and had a few added for when our guests were being seated and during the reception. At the dance, which was at a different location from the ceremony, they were able to read the mood of the crowd perfectly and chose songs that kept the dance floor filled the entire night!!”
