DJ SERVICES - PRICES

SOUND SYSTEMS & LIGHTING

All sound and lighting systems, as well as all DJ training, are designed and supervised by owner and lead photographer, Kris Gay.


I have a background as a Sweetwater Sales Engineer, specializing in designing and selling multi-million dollar recording studios and live sound systems for the rich and famous right down to local professional musicians. Every bit of equipment we use was hand picked by me. Every DJ that I employ has been personally trained by me, using over 20 years and over 800 weddings worth of experience, to ensure that your DJ provides M.C. or Master of Ceremonies services as well as coordinating all vendors behind the scenes so all events are completed per your schedule and personal requests. As a professional musician myself, I have an extensive knowledge of many different genres of music. Every DJ is trained to not only know their equipment inside and out, including troubleshooting any issues on site, but also knowing a wide variety of music genres from the last hundred years. We also bring A LOT of back up equipment with us on site down to extra speakers and other components, cables, adapters, and even extension cords. Electronics may occasionally fail so we're ready to keep the party rocking because we're prepared for everything! Regular ongoing training with all DJ's ensures that we stay your #1 Top Rated DJ vendor for our local area. No one else in our local area even comes close to our level of service.

DJ Joel Crasper-Guzman

Joel's equipment


Joel uses top of the line equipment in a rolling rack case like the kind you see bands use when they travel on tour. This is so he can mount all of the equipment together and run cables inside the case for a clean look. He also has his own table with cover or a DJ facade that covers all of the equipment behind it. This create a clean and neat look for all stands, cables, and equipment. The photos that you see of Joel working below with a large mixer were for a live sound event. We've also included several photos of his set up for an outdoor wedding. When we provide sound for outdoor weddings, we can put the speakers in front or behind the guests. We provide all of the music and microphones for your official and the couple so all of the guests can hear the ceremony well.


His audio system includes top of the line components from microphones wired and wireless, mixer, EQ, compression/gate/limiter, power conditioner, professional cables for reliable connections, and speakers (up to four) including subwoofers. His lighting system includes professional products from Chauvet including many different lighting products for various effects and a huge DMX lighting control board all connected to a truss rod system up to ten feet wide. He can scale his system to suit weddings with 150 guests or more up to huge corporate events with up to 1,500 guests.

Questions?

Brides typically pay for their trial run and their day of wedding MUA services and then let us know how many women need services so we can plan the right number of MUA team.

Generally, the bridesmaids and mothers/grandmothers all pay for their own MUA services on the wedding day. TIPS are recommended to the MUA team as they make less for the entire day than the DJ.

Same for photobooth attendants. They appreciate tips very much.
