Uplighting has become a popular trend for many weddings, almost a necessity for certain venues. Just a few uplights can dramatically alter how you feel about a space, taking you from “Didn't we go to a wedding here last summer” to “OMG!” There are a lot of very pretty venues out there – but the vast majority of them benefit from uplighting – how can you tell if your wedding venue could use a little extra pop?
In the 9th century (about 1300 years ago) The Banu Musa brothers in Baghdad invented an automatic organ and flute player that played a lot like a player piano or music box (invented in 1796). The player piano used paper scrolls in 1876. Did that count as DJing? I would argue that they were, because they were using pre-recorded music to entertain an audience. While the techniques have definitely improved since then, the rules are still the same - make people dance!
Many of the traditions that make up the contemporary wedding date back to before writing; others are far more recent than you might think. We owe most of our traditions to a relatively few groups including the Sumerians, Romans and British, but some come from far around the world and others from right here at home. Ever wondered where they come from and why we still do them? The truth will surprise you!
Picking a DJ may be one of the most important decisions you make for your wedding. They more than provide a soundtrack for your wedding – they’re in charge of handling the mood, tone, pulse, and flow of your reception. Making the wrong choice can put your guests off, cost you unnecessary time and money, and undo months of hard work.
Surely you've seen them in Bridal Magazines and on wedding sites.
While there's no such thing as a bad question when you're face to face with your DJ, there are some questions that are frequently repeated that don't tell you much of anything.
Here's your definitive guide to asking the right questions of a potential wedding DJ.
Just give the office a call at 919-346-4669 or email us at .
We have an 'Open Contract' policy which you can adjust times, add services, change dates, alter location, etc... Whatever you need.
Belive it or not - easily...
In most cases, you've never planned a wedding before so how do you know what you need to do? You're in luck, we do this every week and we've put our experience at your disposal with a great set of Online Planning Tools and sophisticated directive options.
We update our online planning lists frequently, but sometimes you want something a little more esoteric. The good news is we probably already have it. Our online music list covers what we call the 'Company Collection', we actually have our own collections on top of that. What you'll see in the Music Planner is just the start.
If, on the rare chance, we don't have something we'll happily purchase it for your event. That's actually really exciting for us, we love exploring new music!
For most weddings - NO.
Sometimes. If you're wedding is a looooong way away there may be flight and hotel fees, if it's in driving distance there may be a small travel fee to cover your DJs time and gas.
Not necessarily, if the caterer is going to charge you $70 to give the DJ a bag lunch then that money is better spent on a tip for the DJ. If food will not be available for the DJ please let us know so they can bring something to eat. With set-up and teardown and everything else involved we're usually on site for 8-10 hours, and that's a long time to go without food, especially when you work as hard as we do.
If food will be available your DJ will make sure that eating doesn't interfere with the performance of our duties.
Stylus DJs may grab water, tea, lemonade, or soft drinks but we do not drink alcohol at the event and will not engage in questionable or inappropriate behavior - we are professionals.
Some of these mixes are wedding themed, others demonstrate a mastery of specific themes and genres. This is just an opportunity to hear how each DJ seamlessly mixes tracks together to create environments, emotion, and excitement. All of our Wedding DJs have experience playing a variety of genres.
