Wedding Planning 101

Everyone has the same dream, right? To hire Jennifer Lopez as their Type-A wedding planner and coast through your months of wedding planning like it’s a ball and you are the invited princess? “It’ll be so fun!” you tell your fiancé as you dream of doing your cake-tasting while simultaneously getting a pedicure.

Why aren’t kids dancing?

In the DJ industry, we tend to help out the fellow DJ, more than fight for more work.  Our culture is built by DJs who strive to make dances better, events more fun and squeeze out every...
