We are a collective of three DJs who started specializing in weddings after attending too many where the DJs were generic, subpar, or even pure clowns. We love to make people dance and our mix of music reflects that. We keep it classy on the mic and provide top notch sound systems to boot.
Our DJ experiences span many years from rocking house parties to clubs to charity galas to corporate events to weddings. The music we play at any event is solely determined by the people in attendance. We can comfortably cover music from the last 50 years from soul to funk to disco to rock, swing, ballroom, 80s, 90s, pop, hip hop, electro, top 40, indie, and international flavors like bhangra and kpop. We’re able to mix it all together seamlessly and provide a well concocted blend that fuels nonstop dancing!
Whether your wedding is held in a ballroom, on the beach, or in a barn, it’s a time of joyous celebration and intense partying! But it’s also an unique production that involves many moving parts! And that’s where we step in with a personal approach to our craft. We work with clients closely throughout the whole wedding planning process to ensure we:
1) get our client’s musical vision and
2) sort out ALL the little details of the big day
And on your wedding day, we make sure that you remember us only as the background ninjas who ran your reception smoothly and provided the tunes for a smashing dance party!
