Disc Jockey ( DJ ) Services:


Welcome to Media Jockeys disc jockey service. In this section you will find detailed information about the various services we offer, the music library, equipment available, system operators, pricing, and contracting information.

This section should be able to answer many questions you have related to our DJ service, however, probably not all of them. After viewing this material please contact us for further information and to set up a no-cost consultation. We highly encourage every potential client to take advantage of this consultation. At the meeting you will be able to sit down with one of our jockeys and go over details such as the room layout, the flow of the event, music, and announcements without risking any more than a little bit of your time.


DJ Service :

The Media Jockeys DJ service is one that is straight forward and fun. Unlike some other companies that take commissions for referring customers to sub-contracting DJ services, our service is strictly in-house. By using our own equipment and DJs we keep quality and pricing consistent, allowing us to put our own reputation behind our service. We provide experienced, professional disc jockey services to over 200 events annually ranging from wedding receptions, reunions, bar-mitz-vahs and bat-mitz-vahs, school functions, corporate events, grand openings and any event where quality dance or background music is required.
 
   
Our philosophy here is pretty simple. Use the best, most state of the art equipment for a professional look and great sound. Combine that with experience and individual attention to create a highly effective and well received entertainment service. We understand that our services are almost always for very special occasions such as weddings, birthdays, graduations, etc. Therefore, we take extra time with each client to help them decide which jockey and which services are right for them.

Please note the music we provide is created from our own CD library of ~5,000 original CDs and legal downloads. This library was not made from illegal CDs or downloads. We believe that it is important to support artists by buying their music and continue to do that.


Karaoke Services :

Our Karaoke systems have been designed for people who take their fun seriously. With close to 3,000 song titles from which to choose, professional sound systems and digital effects, we believe that our mobile systems rival many of those found in the better Karaoke clubs and at an affordable price that will definitely make you want to add this to your next event. This is very interactive entertainment that is almost always a huge hit.

Equipment :

Every system supplied by Celebration Music and Events comes with a computer to assist the jockey in running their event. It is a key element in delivering the highest quality mobile sound available. Each computer is equipped with media players, a CD player, equalizer, sound processor, and our extensive collection of music. We use both laptops and desktops with flat panel monitors to deliver a great digital sound and a clean, professional appearance. The rest of the system is tailored to your event needs.

We have sound systems to fit occasions of all sizes. We can provide extremely large sound systems for college dances, conventions, concerts, etc. or we can provide systems so small that they are hardly noticeable - visually. The size of the system will depend on your needs. The standard sound system used for weddings, company parties, and small dances consists of two and four speaker combinations, 1200 watts of power or more, and a microphone. The microphone is a hand-held wireless that is for both our use and yours.

Standard with every system we send out is a set of colored chaser lights that sit discreetly on our speaker cabinets. These chaser lights flash to the beat of the music in a variety of patterns and are very helpful in setting a dancing mood. To further build a party environment consider adding additional effects like mirror balls, strobe lights, black lights, high-tech lights, intelligent lighting, fog machines, and/or bubble machines.

Event Advice

A Classy I-pod Event?:

Biased you say? Maybe. Regardless, its clear to me that an event “DJed” by an I-pod is only marginally cooler than one that was “DJed” by a walkman in the 80's. Now you are probably scratching your head and trying to remember a time when you went to a cool event that was “DJed” by a walkman. You probably can’t think of any. Why? Well, as cool as walkmans were, and as cool as I-pods are, they just aren’t very good at moving sound equipment, making announcements, reading a crowd, interacting with guests and the whole entertainment thing in general.
