Arrowhead DJ™ and Events - Lake Arrowhead Wedding DJ & Event Lighting Specialists

"Arrowhead DJ™ and Events" is a unique husband and wife entertainment team, and we believe that you have the RIGHT to hear the music you WANT to hear. What makes ADJE different is that not only are we both professional wedding DJs, we are also masters of playing the right song - at the right time. When booked together as a team, we communicate on wireless headsets allowing smooth interactions between vendors and the DJ/MC - allowing for a smooth, stress-free event for all!

We specialize in fine-quality sound, lighting, and special effects production for wedding receptions & ceremonies. Our newest Eco-Friendly QSC Speakers are small - yet powerful - because we work hard to be heard - and not seen - especially in your photos; and we always tidy up loose wires for the cleanest presentation.

Arrowhead DJ™ will ensure you and your guests receive a professional, yet memorable event - and unlike most DJs, WE LOVE REQUESTS and always carry a high-speed broadband card to buy songs instantly - in the event we do not have it in our digital library.

We service ALL of Southern California and can travel most anywhere around the world if necessary.

We have a passion for our full-time career as Wedding Entertainment providers - and want your day to be perfect!

Describe your DJ style:
Arrowhead DJ and Events is a small, husband and wife company. When you book your event with us, you will work directly with either “Chad” and/or “Franky.” We specialize in Eco-Friendly, fine-quality sound, lighting, and special effects production for wedding receptions and ceremonies. Some of our most popular additions include Italian Cafe String Lighting, Ambient Uplighting, Monograms and Stunning Wedding Drape.
 
 So, what makes Arrowhead DJ a great choice for entertainment?
 
 “We actually CARE about You, Your Guests, and Your Event!”
 
 It's that simple!
 
 Our online reviews tell some great stories about how much we care about our clients. Like the bride who texted us in a panic the night before her wedding looking for a last-minute DJ (because her original DJ bailed on her) – and how we told her to relax – get some sleep – we've got it covered - everything will be OK... Or the client who was really nervous about hiring a DJ in the first place, but relaxed almost instantly after just meeting us for the first time.
 
 We really do understand that you are planning a once-in-a-lifetime event and you want everything as perfect as it can be... and that's how we look at every single job!
 
 Weddings are nothing short of a full-blown production; hinging on details and cues. Quality coordination is crucial to a successful event, which is why Arrowhead DJ offers both DJ entertainment and coordination packages. Since working our our first wedding in 2007, we have performed for more than 400 happy brides and grooms. It was the DJ/Coordinator team that made us famous... and today, special DJ/Coordination wedding packages are still available. 
 
 With Arrowhead DJ, you have you choice of either Chad or Franky. We are both are professional wedding DJs; able to handle every musical detail from beginning to end. We realize every wedding is different and there is no “One Perfect Playlist”. That's why we always hand-select each and every song played throughout your event. All love songs are not created equal. We steer clear of “Breakup” songs, “I Wish I Had You Back” songs, or “Stalking” songs when choosing great music for your perfect day . We skillfully take your favorite styles of music and blend them throughout your wedding; while carefully selecting music that not only reflects your personal tastes, but is enjoyed by guests of all ages.
 
 We work hard to ensure you and your guests receive a professional, yet memorable event – and unlike most DJs, WE LOVE REQUESTS and always have a hot-spot available to buy songs instantly – in the event we do not have it in our digital library. We also carry redundant equipment so the music won’t stop and the party we keep on going... even if something fails on our end!
 
 Give us a call today and get a quick-quote for your special event. We promises not to badger you with high-pressure sales tactics or demand a deposit over the phone to “LOCK-IN” your date. In fact, you won’t be asked for a dime. We actually let you think about your choices before you spend your hard-earned money on the biggest event you have most likely ever produced in your life! Then, when YOU are ready to move forward, simply let us know. In the event both of us are booked on your date, we will even help you find another excellent DJ! Major credit cards – and PayPal accepted
 
 We LOVE what they do and our reputation proves it!
 
 When you book Arrowhead DJ for your event, we promise to:
 
 - Visit your venue prior to your wedding day
 - Always arrive early and have music playing 30 minutes before the ceremony.
 - Only play Profanity-Free (PG13) or Radio Edits
 - Carry backup music and equipment
 - Tidy up our wires and put forth a professional appearance
 - Happily allow guest requests (unless you ask us not to)
Is there a limit to the amount of music that can be requested?
No Limit
What is your usual attire?
Dressy Black Attire
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
No matter where we provide entertainment, we carry a hot spot. In the case we get a request to play a song we do not have, we will buy it and have it ready to play - usually in less than a minute!
How many other DJs do you work with?
DJ Chad and DJ Franky
What is the minimum amount of time you will DJ for?
3-hours
Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?
Absolutely! We insist meeting with the couple at least once before the wedding day.
Do you specialize in any ethnic or international events?
No
Can the client submit a do-not-play list?
Absolutely! And we actually stick to it! :)
Do you bring your own equipment?
Yes - Including backup equipment.
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
We specialize in Wedding Lighting including Italian Cafe String Lighting, up-lights, Pin Spotting, Intelligent lighting, and more.
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?
2-Hours is preferred. Lighting, drape, decor and more may require more time and even additional days. We prefer to have a dressed table when we arrive, however, we can bring one along if necessary.
Do you have any extra space requirements?
No
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
No
Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?
Minimally - only to keep the guests informed,without taking the attention away from the newlyweds. We maintain a fun, friendly atmosphere throughout the event.
How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?
Depending on the situation, I may use a variety of techniques including group dances, a slow song or two, checking genres, asking guests for requests, and dimming the lights over the dance floor. The fact is, if the newleyweds are on or near the dance floor throughout the evening, people WILL dance.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
We only take a 10 minute break for meals...if not provided.
Will you arrange for recorded music to play during your breaks?
Of course - however, we typically do not take breaks during a 6-hour event - Nor do we EVER sit during a formal event.
What is your backup plan in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
Both Franky and I are professional DJs and we are members of the American DJ Association - giving us access to hundreds of professional DJs in our area in the case of an emergency.
Do you book yourself for more than one event in a day?
NO, once you've booked the day, you have the whole day!
What is your overtime rate?
We do not charge by the Hour - so anything above and beyond what we originally booked is gratuity-based.
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
We do not charge travel expenses for most Southern California venues.
What is the required deposit to secure your services?
Typically 50%, however we can break our fee up into multiple payments if you wish.

I was really nervous when I first met with Chad. My groom and I weren't having dancing and we didn't know how to make the wedding not boring. Chad had great ideas that turned into fun for everyone. We are low key people but didn't know how to describe what we wanted. We named a couple of our favorite artists and he knew what we wanted. On the day of our wedding when our guests started to get restless he jumped into action and had our guests playing scavenger hunts. He also had a cell phone trivia game that had all of our guests mingling to see who knew what answers. Everything was timed perfectly because Chad was so good about moving things forward. He helped me pick the song for my big entrance and had all of my guests crying. Really really good job.

Prior to meeting Chad at Arrowhead DJ, music was one of the more stressful aspects to our wedding. Very professional and responsive to our requests, Chad helped calm our nerves and guide us through the entire process. With the "must play" selections we provided, he was able to put together a perfect set of songs that fit who we are as a couple! We highly recommend Arrowhead DJ for your upcoming wedding!

We worked with Chad for our wedding at Pine Rose and can't say enough great things about him!

Chad has an extremely organized approach to the flow of the wedding from ceremony, to dinner and toasts, to dancing. He walked us through step by step to make sure he understood what we were looking for and also made great suggestions when we were unsure of our vision.

Our event was not only smooth, but also fun as a result of Chad's genuine interest in our enjoyment, his ability to read a crowd, and the way that he was able to appeal to a variety of tastes. He mixed in everything we wanted, from the classics to Latin music to hip hop, and everyone had an amazing time. Thank you, Chad!!

I booked Chad for my wedding more than a year in advance. The venue I originally was getting married had a few permit issues and therefore had to cancel our wedding. Chad as on the preferred list of vendors at our first venue and therefore came at a discount. When we found our new venue he agreed to still be our DJ and did not charge us any additional money. He was just amazing. We were able to call or email him any time we had questions. He played every song we requested and kept our guests on the dance floor. We had a few delays with our timeline and he easily worked around them. We also booked his wife to do our photo booth. (It was the hit of the night!) they let us use our own props as well as their large variety of props. The photo booth was unlimited for the duration of the reception and no matter how many people crammed into the picture they always printed out a copy for each person. Both Chad and his wife were very friendly and I'm so glad we were able to have them at our wedding.

Chad is great. He fit in all the music we wanted and even edited a song to fit or need for our wedding. Many of my guests commented on the playlist and had a great time. He showed up dressed to impress and did an awesome job instructing the events before, during, and after the ceremony and reception. Thanks Chad!

Chad was wonderful! He is super knowledgeable about music. My husband is a bit of a music snob (haha) and he had a good time chatting with Chad about stuff I didn't know much about. :)
We had some live music (singing and guitar playing) throughout our ceremony, and Chad had the sound under control. It all sounded absolutely beautiful.
In addition, Chad has great timing, and kept our reception flowing so smoothly. I didn't realize that a good DJ keeps things moving along at a comfortable pace. He also was great about gauging how the guests who were dancing were reacting to different songs, and he always knew what to play next to keep the party going. I am so happy we went with Chad!
