How long have to been in business?

We have been in business since 2002. So its been over 16 years now, that we have served brides & grooms all over California, Hawaii, Texas, New York and even internationally in Hong Kong!

Where are you located?

We are located in Emeryville, just a couple blocks over from Bay St. and just across the Bay Bridge from San Francisco. We work all over the Bay Area and call it our home. We regularly do weddings and corporate events all over San Francisco, East Bay, Napa and Sonoma counties. We are happy to travel too. Let us know if you’re having a destination wedding or event.

What type of music do you play?

We play the kind of music that is appropriate for the event and that our clients request. So if we are playing a 70’s themed party, we play disco and funk. If we are playing an 80’s themed party, we play 80’s alternative and new wave. Most weddings though require a wide range of musical genres including all the hits from 50’s and 60’s… all the way up to current popular Top 40.

What type of EQUIPMENT do you use?

We use the most up to date dj equipment and are always on the look out for the latest and greatest. Currently we use the Technics SL-1210MK2 Turntables running Serato DJ Pro with Shure White Label Needles. Our other more portable systems include the Pioneer DDJ-SB3. As for speakers… we use JBL self powered speakers. Built to last and sound great! In addition, we always have a Shure wireless mic amiable for the best man’s speech, toasts and announcements.

Do you offer any other services?

We thank you for asking, and yes we do. We have to other companies and services for weddings and corporate events. We offer a totally rad photo booth through The Awesome Booth. As well, we offer ceremony and cocktail hour musicians through Ms Jones Entertainment. And we are happy to offer you a package deal if you need more then one service. Just let us know.

Are you insured?

Yes, we carry $1,000,000 in event insurance, which is required by most of the venue locations we work at. Not a problem.

Do you make ANNOUNCEMENTS and emcee or just dj?

Yes… we are happy to make all the announcements and emcee the event, if you’d like us too? Some couples want this, while others just prefer we have a wireless mic available if and when other guests want to use it. Either way, we will handle it.

How did you get into djing?

Well, basically I was “star struck” from the very first time I saw a 2 turntable (w/mixer) DJ set up at my friend Greg Dean’s house in Monterey! As I looked his turntables with my mouth hanging wide open, I was like… “What’s this? How does it work? What do you do with it?” I knew right them and there, I had to be a DJ, peroid! I’ve never looked back.

We know what music we want for dancing, but can you help us with music for the ceremony and cocktail hour?

No problem… I have compiled a list of all the top choice’s of formality songs and will provide that to you. Cocktail hour music can be really fun because we don’t have to make people dance, you can choose to have a themed music selection. Want an all bluegrass themed cocktail hour… lets do it! Want to play more obscure cuts that most people haven’t heard… sounds good to me! Or maybe you want “standards” with big band and rat pack for your cocktail hour… your guest will love it!

What about CHEESY wedding songs? Do you do that?

Well I’m happy you asked. Here’s the deal… it is NOT my style to play those TYPICAL WEDDING SONGS that you’ve heard a million times, BUT… I will say… towards the end of the night (you know when people have had a few to many) …these songs can be a lot of fun! So really it’s up to you.

Don’t want it… Perfect, sounds good to me! …Or, you want me to BRING ALL THE CHEESE… Sounds Good! I’ll have all your guests doing sing-a-longs with NO SHAME, until the next day! Lol

Do you require anything from us?

Yes. I require an in-person meeting to see if we both will be a right fit for each other. This way you can get to know me and my personality, as I can also get to know your personalities. Then you can make an educated decision whether or not I am the best decision for your wedding day.
