Each year, I communicate with over a hundred engaged couples in northeast Ohio about DJing their weddings. Because so many people respect my thoughts and opinions about wedding DJs and events from this website and blog, they will sometimes ask “Who are some of the other great DJ companies in the Cleveland area?
Getting married is a huge deal. Your DJ is responsible for keeping the party going – but why do so many hide their prices online? If you’re planning on buying something significant, you probably go online to research how much it will cost. Whether you’re looking to buy a new car, want to go on vacation, or book a wedding venue.
Should you have an open mic at your wedding reception? This is where a microphone is put out front and anyone who wants to speak is given the opportunity to give a speech, tell a story or give a toast. The open mic usually occurs at the end of dinnertime. I have DJed some weddings that have had an open mic.
The last dance song at your wedding is important because it is the last impression of your event, so you should choose wisely. Here are some things to consider. I find that there are three kinds of songs that couples choose to end their wedding reception. So before you decide on what last song you want, it helps to decide what kind of song you want to end your wedding with.
Let me guess, you already booked your wedding venue, began dress shopping, and maybe even sent out your invites. Now it’s probably around that time when you start to think: What if no one dances at my wedding? What if my guests don’t have fun? Should I have booked my wedding for Saturday rather than Sunday?
Wedding planning is tough. From picking out the venue, finding THE dress, and sending out the invites – finding the best wedding DJ can seem daunting. It can be hard to spot the differences between the best wedding DJs and the really bad ones.
So you need to hire a DJ for your wedding, but you’ve never hired one before and you don’t even know what questions to ask them. Everyone knows to ask about price. Here are the other key questions to ask your potential DJ. (The last one could save you money!)

Back in 2002, my girlfriend (now wife) started an educational residency which would have her working crazy-long hours – sometimes up to 80+ hours per week. She knew I loved music and was always making music mixes for parties and other reasons.
