Congratulations on your engagement and your upcoming wedding day!

First Class Dances has been providing memorable, fun, and tasteful disc jockey services for over 35 years. We pride ourselves on customer service and we would be delighted to provide the disc jockey services for your reception; a stress free performance, done your way.

From the seating of your guests for dinner, the announcement of the wedding party entrance, the toasts, the first dance and all of your personal preferences throughout the evening, we will coordinate all of your special events for you. You can relax and have fun. Our experienced entertainers can tastefully interact with your guests (at any level you prefer) to the delight of all. Additional services we offer are Ceremony music, Love stories, Keepsake songs, Projection systems, Slideshow production services, custom music mixes, Programmable and custom lighting systems. Please call for details.

When shopping Minnesota disc jockey services, be careful, we are all very different. Web sites and price tell little about a disc jockey service and its quality, options, experience and customer service. I would recommend a visit to our studio to experience our service in person. We are the only service that allows you to experience a "live' presentation with a "try before you buy" approach. The demonstration is a free, no – obligation personal consultation with myself, the owner. I have performed at over 2200 wedding receptions and I can assist you with any questions. You will be very impressed.

If you would give me a moment of your time, I can explain our options and services to you. Please call me at 763-785-2248 to discuss your reception and entertainment needs.

A recent client (after experiencing our demonstration) left our studio by saying "This cannot be described on paper, I'm glad I came to see it".

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Have a great day.

INFO FOR DJ

Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Describe your DJ style:
All of our entertainers are knowledgeable in all styles of music. We will customize our dj interactive style to meet your needs. Similar to an actor and a movie script, we will take your personal "script" and apply that style to your reception.
What is your usual attire?
Our DJ?s wear formal attire for your event unless you ask us for something different. We can dress in shirt and tie, casual, or even theme clothing if you let us know in advance. We are willing to accommodate your choice.
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
We will find the necessary music requested, given it is available and we have time to locate that selection. The couple can also provide music for us to play.
How many other DJs do you work with?
We have 12 DJs on staff that are our regular staff and many others that we can select from and work with.
What is the minimum amount of time you will DJ for?
We have a 3 hour minimum on Friday and a 4 hour minimum on Saturdays. We also offer many customized options to meet your needs.
Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?
Yes, we would recommend a meeting in the initial shopping process to better qualify your choices, in person.
Do you bring your own equipment?
Yes-
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
Most services are a "one size fits all". We are the only service that allows you to build your own stage presence by offering multiple lighting options. These include a programmable lighting system that we developed for our own use with programmable effects, mirror balls, special effects and many options to choose from.
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?
No tables are required for our gear. We allow approximately one hour to set up.
Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?
We usually act as the MC and the entertainment coordinator for the evening. From announcing and inviting the guests to be seated for dinner, the introduction of the wedding party, all dinner hour toasts and events, through the first dance and all preferred events, we can coordiate all to the customer's script and the enjoyment of your guests. However, we will adjust our level of interaction to meet your needs. We promote an interactive approach on a very tasteful level.
What is your backup plan in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
Yes - We ask for multiple choices that the customer gives so there are no "what if" situations.
What is your overtime rate?
Overtime varies and is negotiable with many factors to consider. Call for quote.
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
Any receptions out of the metro area may be subject to a travel cost. Please call for details.

These guys are the best kept secret in the MN Wedding DJ industry. We were seeking a DJ who had extremely good mixing skills and we were assigned a DJ who spends most of his time working in Twin Cities clubs. Yet he was perfect for our wedding as well. They have state of the art software and equipment and everyone was complimenting us on our music all night long.

Mark was very friendly and had a lot of information to tell us during the demonstration. The demonstration of sound and lights he showed us was very neat. The DJ we got was DJ INDy, we enjoyed him a lot and so did everyone at our wedding. He was very outgoing and basically got the party started, we highly recommend this company and DJ INDy!
