My service is like getting a tailored suit/dress. I customize 100% so it sounds fine to me but, with the caveat that if it looks like it’s going dead I have the leeway to keep things moving by using music i know will work. That’s where the do not not play under penalty of death list comes in 🙂

Any DJ or live group  for that matter who give you a list of their songs are basically saying they have no imagination, no understanding of who you are and are very possibly going to provide you with a cliché musical experience. A wadding is about you and your gusts. Mac up a list, set up an e-mail request list from your guests and contractually require the DJ to work with that. Give them some guidelines and leeway within your parameters. Do however, expect to pay for this work. I spend an average of 40 hours preparing customize music lists.

It’s worth it. You wedding should be 100% unique to who you are.


an ipod weding isnlt going to give you what you want. Absotuely no spontaneity or reaction t what works and what doens;t. A customized, set to your tastes by a DJ interpreting them on the fly does. They do not need ot already have the music. they ened to acquire it. Again expect to pay a reasonable rate for this added service.

MCing should only be used for direction. good music is all you need unless your crowd likes the showy vegas MC thing

If this is a problem for a DJ, you’ve got the wrong DJ.
