Your event is in good hands. Our team of experienced DJs and MCs is like no other in the Nashville market. Your DJ will take the time to educate and get to know what it is you've envisioned for your event and our planning tools are custom-designed to make the process easy for you. We understand that nobody wants the stereotypical "cheeseball DJ" so we take a different (and refreshing) approach that your guests will love. We believe strongly that any great event is about OUR CLIENT, not ourselves, and we work to keep the spotlight focused on you and your guests throughout the evening. When it's time to step up, we present a strong, polished presentation that fits well in even the most elegant of surroundings.

Our music is family-friendly (radio edits) and includes all genres. In addition to the wide selection of, we also have experience in multi-cultural and multi-national events and can guide you through the process of making it work. A few of the non-American events that we've performed are: Vietnamese, Filipino, Korean, French, British, Nigerian, Indian, Austrian, etc. We welcome the opportunity to work with you to make your day special.


Weddings

Your wedding day is a magical event and this is our signature DJ event. Your choice of DJ will affect the outcome of your wedding day, perhaps more than any other wedding vendor you will choose. The level of details for this type of event are in depth, and we are THE choice of the discerning Bride. After your date is booked, we will begin sending you weekly emails with links to your Online Planner and Song Request System.

The Online Planner is your key to proper planning. It will walk you through the process of creating the perfect timeline for your event. About a week out, we will call (or do an in-person meeting, your choice) and do a "Final Read Through", to make certain we understand your wishes for your special day. Then we show up (early) and use this timeline as our event script. It couldn't be easier!

The Song Request System is what we use to gather YOUR special song requests. We ask that you provide us with 10-15 of your favorite dance party songs (you're welcome to enter as many as you want) and from that we know where to steer the evening, musically-speaking. This system also allows for two levels of "Do-Not-Plays". A "Soft DNP" would be something like "I really don't like the Macarena, but if Uncle Charlie is pestering you for it, go ahead." The "Hard DNP" means, under no circumstances will we play these selections.
