You want a good DJ... We're really great DJs. Not arrogant, just proud.

You are one step and a few clicks closer to hitting the jackpot with a great DJ playing amazing music at your wedding! You'll have Stellar Music to Rock Your Wedding! Looking to "wow" your guests? We are really into that and rest assured, you'll shine bright, we'd never hog the spotlight from you!

We are the only DJ in MD, DC or VA who is certified by the Gay Wedding Institute

Music has the amazing power to vastly differentiate what might be an average, mediocre event into a phenomenal party. The songs and genres of music, the order of the songs and the volume at which they are played is crucial to the success of a great party.

Together, we'll create a music format that serves to compliment the soiree and not dominate. We won't take away from all of the other details that you've meticulously selected to deliver the perfect vibe, one that fits the event and your guests will know has your own stamp of approval. You don't want excessive chatter from the DJ or poorly executed announcements. We understand. Many of our clients don't want the same, arguably overplayed songs at every event. You need a great DJ with experience, restraint and skill to know when and how to play the best music and when to shut up and let the guests enjoy the party. We can totally pull that off for you!

You want to guarantee your guests will have a great time. We get it. That's what we are all about... making you look good. It's not about us. It's about incredible music. By investing in our boutique DJ collective, your payoff will be knowing you gave your guests a fun, creative and memorable alternative to standard party music. Our savvy clients want a slightly different and unique approach to the music at their event… not the same old same. Fun, unique, tasteful, classic, hip and creative! Some of the best DJs in the nation who play celebrity events and parties for people who love music can make your event soar! DJs Carl Jr., Leni K. and their collective are the only choice for people who feel they deserve the best there is to offer! Nobody ever wants to plan (or attend) an average, mediocre event.

Better Than Average: You are spending a great amount of time and money to create an incredible atmosphere. One that represents your personal style and will leave your guests talking and feeling they have attended the best event in their lives. With that goal in mind you must consider the great impact that music will have on the event. We are the integral key to that music statement that will leave your guests recalling your event as the best party they've ever attended.

You have an idea what you want, maybe not exactly, but you need a DJ who is music savvy and can help figure that out. You know what you don't want... the same ol' same.

You are smart enough to hire the best. As an Informed decision-maker, you choose to stack the odds in your favor with a stellar music format that reflects your own good taste. The importance of having someone with an extensive background in all types of music creating a festive, fun, yet tasteful atmosphere for you without resorting to attention seeking antics, or spotlight stealing is abundantly clear to you. The party of a lifetime, an event to be remembered, that's what you want... and the music has to be on point.

"You cannot find a better DJ for the money; worth every single penny." - Kelly & Rick

"Classic was the first vendor we booked for our wedding... Such a pleasure to work with and certainly did not disappoint. The dance floor was packed the entire night and people are still telling us that their feet hurt from dancing at our wedding!” - Jennifer

Carl was GREAT! We were planning our wedding from out of town and he set up a conference call with us to review what we needed to think about and discuss when selecting some of our favorite music we wanted to play on our wedding day. He brought all of his own equipment and set up everything up in both the cocktail reception room and the wedding reception room. There was no lag in music. He did a great job introducing everyone's name and made sure to review pronunciation with each person. A true testament to Carl's talent is that I had a daytime wedding and after everyone ate the dance floor was packed from 2pm to 5pm. He also made it a point to get approval on some of the songs that were being requested "YMCA", etc." If you hire Carl you will not be disappointed. He is a true professional and loves what he does!

Working with Leni and Carl was a highlight of our wedding planning. They understood our intended "vibe" immediately and went to work creating a playlist that was uniquely suited to our big event. As promised, they gave us everything we asked for - and nothing we did not want. Leni played the entire evening to perfection! His efforts on our behalf were elegant and festive, romantic and charming! He also took our initial ideas and added his own contributions for a thoughtful and personal musical experience. Many of our guests commented on the wonderful music and how it perfectly complemented the night's festivities! Thank you for a truly magical night!

If you are looking for a DJ for your wedding you should definitely use Classic Collective DJs and use Carl. He is awesome! My Husband and I normally aren't big dancers, but we danced the entire night of our wedding and so did all of our guests! It was a blast. Carl does a great of reading a crowd and playing music that everyone can't help but dance to. Since our wedding we have had so many people tell us that our wedding was the best wedding they have ever been to and they've never seen so many people having fun and dancing. It was all thanks to Carl!

We consider ourselves very lucky to have had DJ Carl at our wedding reception. He really took the time and made the effort to get to know us -- the type of party we wanted to host and our musical tastes (and the demographic profile of our guests) -- in preparing for our event. He is a true professional and music aficionado who can read a room like a psychotherapist!!!! We had numerous compliments at the party and since the party, friends and family raving about the music and what a fun time they had. Even our musician friends tipped their hats to DJ Carl's mastery of the DJ arts. There was never a lull on the dance floor, he guided the party through the cocktail hour, dinner, and dancing portions of the evening with his very sophisticated skill. We will always be indebted to him for guiding and enhancing the incredible, joyful energy at our reception. Book him if you can get on his calendar -- put in the effort to articulate your musical tastes and vision for your party and then let him do his magic!

Working with Leni and Carl was terrific. They were helpful and completely understood the kind of music we wanted. Leni also got it that we wanted "quiet" music during the dinner. It made having conversations with friends so much easier. Dance music was perfect, and Leni was completely professional.

We are so happy we selected Carl from Classic Collective DJs for our wedding! We met with him twice and he really made selecting music for the various parts of our wedding very easy! His background in the business really put us at ease. On the day of the wedding, the music he played for our ceremony and reception was perfect! He could really read the audience and kept the dance floor packed all night. Guests were offering to pay for extra hours of music because they did not want the party to stop! Thank you Carl for making our wedding so memorable!!

Our wedding as amazing, better than anything we ever could have dreamed of and it had so much to do with Carl. My husband and I are not dancers and could never be described as the life of the party. However, we wanted our guests to have the best time ever. Carl spent so much time discussing what we wanted, our music interests, our music dislikes, and incorporated it all into the wedding. He easily read the crowd and knew exactly what to play and when to play it so the party could continue. Everyone said that the music was amazing and the party was so much fun. I cannot thank Carl enough for that!

Leni, our DJ from Classic Collective DJs did an amazing job. With input limited to a particular genre and few artists, Leni put together an awesome playlist, that we and our guests still rave about today! Leni truly enjoys his craft and it was on full display at our reception. Leni is a true professional in every sense.

We could not have been any happier with our choice in working with DJ Carl. Our pre-wedding meeting with him was great, and he really took the time to understand what we wanted and what we liked (and didn't like!). My husband is Greek, and he included several songs that my husband provided and knew exactly how to keep the party going and mix the music to keep everyone dancing. He even had great suggestions on songs that we might want to include (old songs from college, sports, etc) that he perfectly mixed into the evening. His ability to sense how the party is going and keep the party going was exactly what I wanted in a DJ. My husband and I have been to weddings recently, and always make a point of noting how much better our DJ was! The value was also great, as Carl genuinely loves music, loves to talk about music, and to get to know how we wanted the day to be. Choosing someone so professional was important, as he knew exactly how to work with other vendors, and knew how to help us put our vision together for a perfect day!

My wife and I could not be happier to have had DJ Carl play at our wedding. His background in playing clubs for over a decade, combined with extensive (read: hundreds!) of weddings put us at ease immediately. We had several Skype conversations and were blown away by the detail questionnaire he had us work through. It was clear he cared about what we liked, and wanted to make this night memorable for us, our family and friends. A true professional.
When the day came the party was more than we could have imagined. Audio at the ceremony was crisp, cocktail hour was elegant and classy, and the music for the reception and dancing flowed through our broad taste with ease. We had numerous compliments from the guests, including my dad who stopped over to the bridal party table specifically to say how much the family was rocking out to the music during dinner and wasn't DJ Carl the greatest. Top it off to the entire wedding party and many guests singing along during dinner and storming the dance floor at first chance and it was a night to remember. The energy and love was made more by the must-play songs DJ Carl wove in expertly, and his ability to read the crowd and cadence the music through all genres. We are delighted and highly recommend his services.
After the wedding, we received a full set list so that we can relive the music from this night whenever we want. Talk about a touch of class!
