Using our online planning tools, forms and personal consultation, we will cover all the grey areas with you and incorporate as much of your personality into your wedding as possible so that you feel like your wedding is truly yours.

Packages and Enhancements

We love to help our couples have exactly what they want on their special day. We will work with you to put together a personalized entertainment package so everything will be just right. We can do beautiful montages on our 52" LCD screens, architectural ligting to make the room feel grand, video simulcasting, zap photography, live cocktail hour (guitar/piano/vocalist) and reception musicians (percussionists), dazzling intelligent light shows, and much, much more. You can customize your package with as many or as little of these options as you like to help us create your unique and elegant event. Our sound is state-of-the-art. It'll be loud enough to dance to, but not so loud that your older guests are running for the exits. Really, when we're done, everything will be perfect! Read less

INFO FOR DJ

What music genres are in your collection?
50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, Acoustic, Big Band, Classic Rock, Classical, Country, Dance, Folk, Funk, Gospel, Hip Hop, Jazz, Motown, Oldies, Orchestra, Pop, Punk Rock, R&B, Rock, Soul, Strings, Swing, World
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Is there a limit to the amount of music that can be requested?
No. It's your day and we'll do whatever you ask. It should be noted that you may not want to pick all the music if you would like your guests to be able to make requests. Also, our DJ's are master music programmers. If you let them pick some of the music they can enhance your selections with songs that not only fit in well with them, but enhance your entertainment experience.
What is your usual attire?
Tuxedo unless otherwise specified.
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
We are extremely good at finding music. If we exhaust every possibility and have not found your selection, we may ask you to bring the song if you really want to hear it.
How many other DJs do you work with?
We start at two person packages.
What is the minimum amount of time you will DJ for?
We have done events as short as one hour and as long as twelve.
Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?
Of course.
Do you specialize in any ethnic or international events?
I will not go as far as saying we're specialists, but we have had many, many successful events with various ethnic and international events.
Can the client submit a do-not-play list?
It is our opinion that the do-not-play list is at least as important as the do play list. We don't want to mistakenly play a song you hate so we would actually appreciate that.
Do you bring your own equipment?
Yes.
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
We have everything from standard sound activated lights to theatrical intelligent lighting and architectural lighting.
How much time do you usually need to set up? Do you require that the site or client provide a table for you to set up on?
Generally an hour and a half. It is sometimes more depending on the specifications of the event and what our client needs.
Do you have any extra space requirements?
We generally do not need much space to set up, but extra space is required if you're adding things like intelligent lighting or LCD televisions to your event.
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
We believe that banners and signs are tacky. If any of your guests would like to know our information, we would be glad to give them a business card.
Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?
This really depends on the client. We are naturally outgoing and like to engage the guests, but if you are looking for someone more reserved, we would certainly respect your wishes.
How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?
We're no ordinary entertainment company. We have a great many tricks up our sleeves
What is your backup plan in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
Luckily, we have a very good backup plan. We always keep one of our entertainers unbooked so they are available should an emergency arise. I am happy to say that we have never had to use it.
What is your overtime rate?
It is generally in the $250 per hour area.
What is the required deposit to secure your services?
$250.

Darryl "Jake" is a lifesaver and in short an Amazing DJ! Let me explain a bit further, we met Jake after a friend referred him over to us (we were having difficulty finding someone that we liked and meshed with). We met quite a few DJ’s and we found that most of them were either too relaxed or way too upbeat. Jake is a happy middle to both of them ; he is the best of both worlds!

Jake came to our house for our first meeting (most DJ’s we met either wanted you to go to their office or meet you at a local coffee shop – i.e. someplace that’s common ground) and he ended up staying for almost two hours. We got along so well I knew within the first half hour of our meeting that he was the one for us. He met with us a couple times during the planning process (both times coming to our house) and is available if you have any questions or need help planning. I am literally so happy with our decision to use Jake. He kept my entire wedding on the dance floor all night (which was the one big request I had) and I can’t even begin to tell you how many compliments we received on him. Our night could not have turned out any better; trust me that you’ll get everything and more by using Jake (Affair 2 Remember)!

I loved this dj! Jake was great and so easy to work with. All of our guests had a blast and he had everyone on the dance floor from start to end! It was a great mix of music, he really knows how to read a crowd and appeal to what everyone likes. I even had him do my ceremony music and he did a great job! I will definetely have him for any other event I will need a dj!

Please do yourself a favor and book with Jake at Affair 2 Remember.
The words I use to describe this company do not do it justice. Jake was beyond amazing as our Officiant and DJ. Prior to the wedding, he sat down with my husband and I and helped plan out a ceremony that would best fit us as a couple. He spent actual time with us; talked about life and shared stories. Speaking with him always feels like you are talking to a friend. Nervous to be in front of many people, Jake made sure that we were at ease and created a personal, sweet and funny ceremony that was perfection.
As our DJ, he NAILED it. He knew what to play and when and never was there a time that the dance floor was empty. Many times during the reception, we had people asking us how we found this company and how fantastic our DJ was.
Every bride thinks that their wedding is "one of the best," but I can assure you that ours was and our thanks go to Jake and Affair 2 Remember for that.

First off, what can be said. "Jake" and Affair2Remember helped make our wedding perfect. From the first phone conversation, we had a good feeling. He came highly recommended from a friend. My wife and I had a sit down face to face. After an hour talking we knew right away we had our guy and the right company for our wedding. Jake was extremely thorough during the entire planning process. He was very flexible to our needs and took time to work with us. Not only was he our MC but also our Officiant.
Both face to face meetings we had, he got to know us. And in such a short time he was able to create a perfect custom ceremony for us. He spoke to our personalities kept it both sentimental and lighthearted, which is exactly who my wife and I are. By the time our last face to face was over he had us feeling confident that everything would run smoothly. And it did, our ceremony was as perfect as it could have possibly been.
The reception was just as amazing. He worked with us on our event plan and offered suggestions. We gave him free reign on a few things and they were outstanding. His extra touches made it fun and memorable. His additions to the playlist and timing of music, along with his DJ Moe, got the dance floor from empty to filled and kept it filled.
We are beyond glad we went with Jake and Affair2Remember. You will not be disappointed by anything aside from the fact it has to end. He promised that and he delivered. Thank You for a day we will never forget. The Tulenkos!!!

If you are considering Jake and Affair 2 Remember, look no further! We had been to a prior wedding with Jake as the DJ and knew he was top notch. He took much of his busy time to drive up and meet with us, as well as talk on the phone any time we had questions. Once, we realized Jake was also an officiant, within minutes we knew he was the one to marry us. Heartfelt and humor and a beautiful ceremony. Jake really listens to you and what you want for your wedding day. It was absolutely perfect and much of that was due to him. We fully trusted him and he delivered his promise to us. Our wedding day was so special and friends are still saying it was the best wedding they have ever been to! Thank you, Jake!

Affair 2 Remember did such an amazing job with our wedding! Our family and friends raved about the acoustic singing by Jake during our cocktail hour. Our ballroom was beautiful and perfectly lit with up lighting done by Affair 2 Remember as well as a monogram on the dance floor all night with our names and date of the wedding. The photo booth was fantastic! Everyone had so much fun taking pictures with the props. We had 2 TV's which had pictures of the cocktail hour and reception as well as a photo montage. Jake did such an amazing job from beginning to end. He kept everyone happy and dancing all night long. It was a spectacular evening and it is thanks to Jake and Affair 2 Remember. He is hands down the best DJ!! Couldn't be happier. Affair 2 Remember made our wedding absolutely perfect.
