www.djemer.com “Staying power serving all generations” Your decision on choosing the right DJ is very important. Since the beginnings of a DJ in the 80’s, a DJ service in the 90’s, a one-stop shop in the 00’s, and today producing bridal shows, anticipating your big day has always been consistent. Always young at heart, I cannot get away from experiencing the joy and fun to play the latest tunes, but I still enjoy playing music from back in the day that you and your parents have enjoyed. Last minute changes before your date is inevitable, but important details is always important to document as soon as you see fit.

I’m well connected with ProTones, Colonial DJs, Big Dreams Entertainment, MorLina Events, Astro Entertainment among many others. I encourage you to consider them. The need to work every week is not as important as ensuring the fun that I get to experience with all of you. Familiar with all wedding business types, focusing on the DJ aspect is what I enjoy most. What to play, what to say, and when to them is what you we need to get so you can tend to your other priorities. I look forward to understanding your wedding day timeline.

I can be your emcee using proper introductions to involve your guests and lead them for many group activities. Unless told otherwise, appropriate dress attire is there to maintain the interests of your guests, proving time spent with your guests will show my dedication to the best service possible for all ages.

The next step is to have a conversation specifying your needs. Your event is confirmed once the first half is received to secure your event, with the remaining half due two weeks prior to your event. Other items required are:

[1] A Floor Plan sent from the venue or you. The ideal setup is your place directly across from the DJ table with the dance floor in between. Quick access to the dance floor is best!

[2] The Playlists with music through the years is considered, given the time available to us:

A. Must Play of your first dance, parents dances, cake cutting, last dance, and even the grand entrance;

B. Background music heard during the cocktail hour or dinner time. You can submit just artist names or genres to simplify this task if you wish;

C. Dance Music as DJ choice or submit songs you would definitely love to dance to, as well as favorites from your parents’ generation;

D. Do Not Play music like offensive hard rock & rap music helps us make sure we do not play music that is inappropriate.

[3] The itinerary as a timeline of events established from a series of emails with a final version approved by the last week before to your big day for you and everyone involved.

I have deals that’s almost the same as hiring a local professional DJ. I’ve had enjoyable experiences in Dallas, Chicago, Spokane, San Jose, Tucson, Hawaii & the East Coast! Otherwise serving the Hampton Roads area is great! I am DJ Tripp as I love to travel. The number of in-person meetings or conference calls is up to your availability. I look forward to serving you...anywhere! Congratulations and thank you for your time and consideration. Please feel free to give me a call at 757-676-2211 or email me at hamptonroads@mac.com.

I thought it would be a hassle having to hire a DJ that is located far from where I lived because I really would not have the time to see him, but it definitely all worked out GREAT!! We communicated through the phone and emails. He definitely helped me get more organized in regards to our music choice. We shared ideas and took some of his advice because he is more familiar with weddings than I am. I finally met him right before we had to open up the dinner/dancing area at my reception. He did a great job and everyone was asking where I got my DJ from. Definitely a great choice! He was recommended through our friends, who is actually doing their wedding in the summer.

If I could give above 5 stars I DEFINITELY WOULD!

Quality of Service:
DJ Tripp (or Emer as I know him) was able to feel the crowd and play music accordingly, emcee'd with great enthusiasm, and provided useful input to my timelines that greatly benefited the flow of the wedding reception.

Responsiveness:
Never had a problem contacting him or getting a response from him.

Professionalism:
Extremely professional! Knew exactly what he was doing and seemed to genuinely enjoy being there.

Value:
Was VERY affordable especially for the quality of service he provided.

Flexibility:
Emer met with me on several occasions in person at his office to go through my wedding timeline to ensure that he was familiar with all aspects of the event. We even did this over the phone once too. During one of the meetings he scheduled (our final walk-through) he was under the impression it was going to be held over Skype and I thought it was going to be held in person. When I called to tell him I was on the way to his office at 8PM for the meeting he was already headed out of the door but he stayed and we ended up holding this meeting at his office until nearly 10:30PM. He did so without any hesitation. He found time to go over every name in my wedding party (which was A LOT of people with DIFFICULT names) and he made sure he was able to pronounce them correctly.

Truly wonderful all around DJ for a wedding!

Donna, I am appreciative of your kind words. I'm just honored to be a part of you and Josh's BIG DAY at the Half Moone Cruise and Celebration Center in Norfolk. Your vendors were very accommodating and the FLOW was just right. I wish we had more time to enjoy the evening but your bar & photo booth were great attractions not to miss! Your allowance for the speakers and projector screen positioned itself just right. Your guests were fun to see and your planner kept me informed throughout! The payoff was how seamless and correct everything came in place. I appreciate the time you and Josh put in to communicate with me. My best to you, Josh and your wonderful families!

Carly, I had a great time with you and Chad at the Virginia Beach Resort and Conference Center. I'm so glad everything worked out given the distance from Arizona to Virginia! You had a fun bridal party and all your guests were very responsive to everything going on! I appreciate you and Chad's communication via email, cell, skype and finally in person! We made it to the end of the night and I felt complete with all that you wanted to happen. Thank you for having me celebrate the big day for Mr. & Mrs. Chad Gepfrey! Yay! I got the pronunciation right the whole time! Smiles!

DJ Tripp was awesome for my wedding reception. He brought great positive party energy. He was receptive to the guests and what types of music the guests liked dancing to. My family and friends likes get up to dance and get down with the party! He announced the bridal party with great ease, professionalism and his suggestions were helpful for sequencing events. He also had lighting that helped to make the reception hall prettier with elegant ambiance. My sister and cousins have been using DJ Tripp for many years, he always throws a great party!

Cristie, I had a great time with you and Jason's families and friends. My trip to UVA's Alumni Hall in Charlottesville, Virginia was a wonderful experience. Having a current student there helped as well as Cody's ongoing communication throughout the day and night. I didn't let the hard rain affect us as we all kept dancing the night away. Going through each of your family members makes me feel as a member too. Just seeing and hearing how much everyone loves you and Jason really says a lot. I enjoyed the continuing "Namata Glee Club" tradition and even the groomsmen got in on the act with their "Magic Mike" rendition! I appreciate you and Jason having me travel up there and be a part of your special day in Charlottesville!

DJ Emer is the most amazing DJ I've seen and worked with. Its that time of year for my husband and I as all of our friends (including us) are getting married. I saw Emer at a friends wedding last year and knew that I had to have him for mine. He gets everyone up dancing while keeping them all informed about the events.

Thank you so much Ashley. Despite nature's "call of the winds", everyone banded together for a great time at the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley in Winchester, Virginia! Seeing everyone happy both Friday and Saturday was really something! This was my first experience in your area just 18 miles east of West Virginia and 9 miles south of Maryland. That satisfying sigh of relief for such a wonderful evening paid off in the end. The "togetherness" your guests expressed just showed how much they cared for you and Ryan! Thanks again:)

Thanks Jenny! After so many years, can you believe I'm finally documenting my DJ services now? I've been so into the work that I forget to go over this part. This is why I love do what I do! The energy that your family and friends have over each party is something I live for! Your ceremony and reception at the Piazza in the Village in Colleyville, Texas was so beautiful! Thank you for your hospitality in Keller, Texas as well! I love to travel anywhere in the country and I thank you for the experience of having to DJ for the first time in good ol' Texas! The weather in Dallas is awesome without the humidity, and who knows? Maybe Houston? Thank you so much for you and Justin's wonderful hospitality!

Traveling to Chicago and staying at the Eaglewood Resort and Spa in Itasca, Illinois was well worth it! I think I spent more time on the dance floor than behind the DJ area. The games, the announcements, and the group dances were just a few to keep the awesome flow of the evening! I will never forget how much fun I had with all of your guests at Venuti's Banquets and Ristorante in Addison, Illinois! Vladimr, having me for you and Joanna's ceremony and reception was an honor. Thank you!
