Dunn Entertainment disc jockey entertainers do more than just play music. They are also: Announcers, Masters of Ceremonies, Music Programmers, Audio Technicians, Lighting Technicians, Coordinators and are generally in charge of the flow of the evening to make sure everything runs smoothly.
Not everyone can successfully DJ a wedding reception. Most people do not have the music knowledge, sensitivity, technical, motivational, music programming or announcing skills to do a professional job. Our DJs have all spent years honing their craft and have proved to more than proficient at their jobs. Not only does Dunn Entertainment employ DJs who are highly professional, but they are also individuals who have the skills necessary to read an audience and respond or to move them emotionally.
The amount of hours that we are working for you is not just the time that they we performing. We spend time on event planning, any meetings that you may want, music research and acquisition, transportation to your event, set-up and tear down times and maintaining equipment to make sure there are no surprises on your very important day. In a 4 hour show, we may have upwards of 10 to 12 hours invested in your event.
#1 Fear in America
The number one fear in America today is public speaking, or getting up in front of large gatherings and talking on a microphone. Sound familiar? Not everyone can do, successfully, what our entertainers routinely do. This fact alone has an added value.
What kind of music do you play?
That all depends on what you would like us to play! We have a “Wedding Planner” which is a worksheet that we work with you on to find out the best mix of music that will entertain your guests. We often reference the “Top 200 Hits” compiled by actual client requests.
How about Dinner Music, Additional Hours or Karaoke?
If you would like us to set up and play soft music during your dinner or add additional hours at the end of the evening because everyone is having a great time, we can certainly do that. The rates for these extra hours or services will vary slightly so be sure to ask for your quote.
Photo booths are a great way to create lasting memories in picture form. Dunn Entertainment now offers a state of the art photo booth that can print in either the traditional 3 photo strip format or a new, revolutionary flip book form. You can choose what will fit your event better.
