our Experience

This industry chose us.
It all began with Ran hosting a music video television show and being a musician for multiple national performing groups.
This led to Ran MC-ing and providing music for charitable events with organizations such as the American Cancer Society and United Way, resulting in raising more money for those non-profit events.
Soon after it grew to equip these and other fundraising events with lighting. 
Eventually, guests and fellow volunteers asked Ran to DJ their weddings, conventions, and other milestone events. 
At an early age, Ran’s kids, Niki & Faylon, became intrigued with Ran’s musical ingenuity. This ignited a mentorship for them to learn music history, mixing sound, microphone / MC techniques, lighting design, and tricks of the trade- evolving into a family-owned and operated business.

We cannot say enough good things about A Ran Music Service. They did an amazing job! The dinner music was just right and it was at the perfect volume the whole night. They played great songs and had great sound quality. They were able to "read" the crowd and immediately played songs to fit our guests’ style. We greatly appreciated all their work and Niki does an excellent job with all the details prior to the reception. My wife and I planned our own wedding, and with Niki taking such good care at her end, we didn't have to worry about anything.
