Describe your DJ style:
We ask you what style you want - interactive and upbeat- or subdued and laid back? Then we provide what you want, we can do both. We are all about finding out exactly what kind of music and event you want and providing you with that, we don't try to push our preferences onto you. We will however give you the benefit of our experience of doing years and several hundred very succesful events of all kinds to avoid mistakes and give you an event that will exceed your expectations.
Is there a limit to the amount of music that can be requested?
We ask our clients what music they DON'T want to hear. We will play any requests that won't derail the dance party and that aren't on our client's DON'T Play list.
What is your usual attire?
We are always well dressed, and appropriate to the theme and color scheme of the event. If its black tie we will do that too.
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
We have a vast library of music, and we obtain most of our new songs through iTunes. Sometimes if they are very obscure we can get songs through Youtube. If i we cannot locate them we will ask the client to provide a CD copy if they have it.
What is the minimum amount of time you will DJ for?
3 hours.
Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?
Yes.
Can the client submit a do-not-play list?
Yes - we request one - we don't want to play anything the client or their family doesn't want to hear.

$150 per hour
What is the required deposit to secure your services?
We require a signed contract and a 50 % deposit to book us. We can arrange payments on the deposit if that is a problem. The balance is due 2 weeks before the event date.

Absolute Entertainment went above and beyond my expectations. They helped to coordinate multiple services for our wedding day. They helped find us a wonderful string quartet called Primavera String Quartet who did a beautiful job for our ceremony. Absolute also found us a mariachi band who met our guests outside the church after the ceremony and entertained them while we took some pictures inside the church. Then the mariachis led all of us on a La Marcha from the church, around the plaza, and ending at our reception venue the La Fonda. The La Marcha was a big hit and all my guests kept coming up to me that night saying how unique and cool it was and how much fun it was that they got to be a part of it. At the reception, Absolut privided DJ services and they were great. They helped me come up with a reasonable must play/don't play ever/don't play unless requested list. They had access to all the songs we wanted and they even helped us edit songs for the father/daughter and mother/son dances to be appropriat lengths. All the groups we worked with through Absolute were fantastic and highly professional. Just as importantly, they were all on time and there were no awkward transitions because Absolute works with the groups to coordinate times. I highly recommend using Absolute Entertainment because they will definitely make your day/night unforgettable.

I have to say that I am so happy and grateful we chose Absolute. Vicky and Chris were wonderful! Vicky made it a point to get the guests involved in the reception all night. They guided us in choosing great music. When electricity went out city wide,Vicky and Chris started to think of alternative ways to get music for the reception. Thanks to the both of them for a wonderful evening!

The husband and wife team is great. I met with them before the wedding and I was so touched with the care that they took to help me pick out songs that went with my music interests for different portions of the reception based on my musical interests. They also helped pick our the father/daughter dance, which was very, very special.

Though I'll admit I still figured that the DJ that showed up at the wedding would just play whatever suited his fancy. I didn't quite believe he would play each and every song that I picked out from cocktail reception, dinner to dancing. I even sent my list to a friend saying "but we'll see what they actually play". I was wrong! From Built to Spill to Old 97's to David Bowie he played it ALL. The songs that remind us of each other, special times, special places or we just LOVE- he played them all.

The DJ (who b/c it was kind of a crazy day, I feel bad but don't remember his name) was so attentive to me. He explained everything to me and made sure I knew what was going on and when. My guests had a blast. My new 89 year old grandmother in law didn't leave the dance floor all night. My groom, who doesn't dance, DANCED! My neices and nephews have never had so much fun. My 4 year old niece came up to me at 10:00 pm and told me emphatically that "this is the best party I've ever been to in my entire life". I couldn't agree more with her.

I highly recommend Absolute Entertainment!

Vicky and her husband were wonderful! We had family members playing instruments and singing for our ceremony, and Vicky coordinated this with ease and made everything run smoothly. We were really impressed with her professionalism. As for the reception, Vicky and her husband did a great job as DJ, and had everyone up and dancing before dinner was over. The music selection was spot on. We are really happy with their services. Would definitely recommend to others :)

My husband and I were very happy with our decision to hire a DJ for our afternoon wedding, considering that it was an afternoon wedding where getting people to dance would be a little difficult. The DJ's did a great job. The owner Vicky was fun to work with and she definitely knows how to run a wedding. She has a great list of musicians to work with. We were happy with her help in making our day perfect.

I used Absolute as my wedding ceremony & reception DJs.
This is kind of a mixed review for me - more positive than negative though. On the con side, it was a bit hard getting in touch with Chris at the company was a bit hard via email - sometimes my emails went unanswered, which was annoying. The big negative was that the timeline for the reception got really messed up - things got really out of order, and the father/daughter dance got skipped altogether until my videographer was about to leave and I realized we hadn't done it, and reminded the DJs.
On the positive side, the music was great. I didn't have an extensive must play, or don't play list for the wedding and the stuff they chose was great. I got a lot of compliments on the music (which I really had nothing to do with lol!) The DJ's dressed and acted professionally, and the lights and sound were set up well. Chris & Vicky were VERY knowledgeable in the planning session. They even edited down my processional so that my entry would fall at the right time in the music. They really thought of everything. All in all things went pretty well and I'm happy I used them.
