should I choose a DJ over a band?
One of the most important decisions for your reception is
the entertainment. Many guests say that it was the reception
entertainment that made the evening more memorable. This
is because it is often the entertainment that keeps your
guests at the reception long after all the formalities are
over. When you are trying to decide, just remember a few
fundamental difference between a band and a DJ. With a DJ,
the music is in the original format, by the original artist,
so the songs and styles are those you are familiar with.
Most bands only have a limited song list, whereas our DJs
have a virtually unlimited music selection. Bands also take
breaks throughout the evening. Our music does not stop from
the start of the reception until the very end. Finally,
and probably most importantly, most bands do not emcee your
reception. Our DJs will provide professional emcee services
to keep your reception flowing smoothly from start to finish.
type of music do you play?
Wedding receptions are very unique in the fact that your
guests age range can vary immensely. Think about the
age range of your guests. What is your youngest brother,
sister, niece, nephew, friend, etc. that will be attending?
Then consider your oldest grandparent, parent, etc. What
is the best way to appeal to this broad age range? Sometimes
our customers want songs that would normally have inappropriate
language. If this is you, rest assured that all of our music
is provided by radio station provides, and is edited to
clean cuts. We can customize a music presentation that will
ensure your guests stay on the dance floor, regardless of
your pricing include setup and takedown?
We do not charge for setup and takedown. The time listed
in all our packages is strictly for disc jockey playing
time. Setup and takedown are included at no additional time
charges or fees.
interactive will our DJ be?
Every couple and every reception are unique in their own
way. That being said, we are happy to be as interactive
or as quiet as your prefer. Our policy is simple, if guests
are having a good time and dancing, we generally do not
continue to make comments over the microphone. No one wants
to remember that wedding reception where the DJ talked all
night. This is your day. We can help get your guests on
the dance floor and then let the party carry itself from
are considering hiring Elite for our reception, can we come
see you at an event?
Many of our brides ask us this question. We must respectfully
say that we do not permit our customers to come visit other
events. Wedding receptions are private events, just like
yours. We would be happy to meet with you at your office,
at your venue, or any other convenient location. Like coffee?

so we would love to offer you a no-obligation consultation

Not a problem at all! We do not double book events with
the same DJ, so we would be happy to play as long as you
