For well over 2200 weddings, and countless other events, we have been giving our clients entertainment they didn't think was possible. Our success comes from delivering what you want AND making sure your guests feel with their hearts.

The award-winning staff at Function 45 set out to change the way events are designed, produced, and entertained. Our attention and dedication to each event is unique, makes an impact, and leaves people saying "How'd they do that?"

The idea is simple. Combine great performance with unique entertainment ideas. This combo delivers remarkable results. When that happens, you & your guests feel something they don't forget. By stepping outside the "box", We're able to continually do what others say is impossible. We hear "Wow, this is the best wedding I've ever been to" week in and week out. With us it's the rule, not the exception.

When you book us, it makes you look like you know the secret. In fact your guests will feel so good they just won't want to leave, and that makes us feel pretty good.

From professional DJ and Master of Ceremony services to lighting, Photobooths, and Video production, we have services that engage people. When all these services come from within the same company, the timing, flow and smoothness of everything is outstanding. Does that mean you have to use all of our services? Not at all. We play well with others. Sometimes it's just a bit easier to get them all in one place. Especially if that place has a reputation of integrity like Function 45.

With that said, we'd love to talk with you. Give us a call or send an email

1 800 I Got A DJ or Steve@Function45.com

We have offices that you can spend a little time at to relax and talk details. Or if you'd like, we can come to you. Either way, let's talk about how we can help you get what you want. Read less

Steve is absolutely phenomenal! I cannot put into words what a great job he does. I have a musical background, so technically speaking, he knows his stuff. The sound quality of all the music was top notch, and there were speakers throughout the venue so no matter where my guests were, the could still hear what was going on.

Another thing he did was kept the flow of the wedding going smoothly. There's nothing worse as a guest than to not know what's going on, and Steve made sure my guests were informed the entire time. They knew when to be seated, they knew when and where appetizers were at, when the cake cutting was, etc., etc. And the entire time, he played games so there was never a dull moment.

In addition to this, the lighting he provides absolutely sets the mood. He had uplighting throughout my venue that made for such an amazing effect throughout the night. And the lights he has on the dance floor create such a fun environment.

I have to say, however, my absolute favorite thing he did for us was create our first dance. He had my husband and me record messages to each other prior to the wedding that he masterfully incorporated into our first dance. We hadn't heard each other's message until that moment, and it had us both in tears. But we weren't alone. There wasn't a dry eye in the house. Everyone shared this special moment with us, and it is a memory I will cherish forever.

I cannot recommend Steve highly enough. If you want the wedding of a lifetime, you HAVE to go with Function 45!!

It was very important that our wedding reception was a lot of fun.

As soon as I spoke to Steve Schon from Function 45 over the phone he was very knowledgable, understood my vision and was able to provide many helpful suggestions on how to make this happen (this was even before we decided to have him DJ/MC).

During the planning process he was very accommodating and suggested many things that I had not even considered.

On the night he kept things running smoothly. We kept guests engaged with games and dancing. Many guests walked away saying what it was the best wedding they had been to!

If you want a wedding that is a lot of fun, I highly recommend Steve.

Lets play word association to start off this review. Michael Jordan - Basketball. Jerry Rice - Football. Ali - Boxing. Steve at Function 45????? DJ'ing!!!!!!!

Steve was highly recommended to us by another industry professional. He was described by the well known photographer as the "best DJ he had ever seen." Naturally, we contacted him with the highest of expectations. After a wonderful, not-so-brief (in a good way) consultation, we knew we found our guy. He was charismatic, passionate and a real professional. He gave us an idea of what he had in mind and gave us plenty of time to personalize our big day. During the final meeting he was very attentive and detailed. He took notes on exactly how we wanted everything to go. On top of that, he made suggestions and walked us through it all. We felt special whenever we left. We knew we were in good hands.

All we wanted was a wedding that was a lovely, fun and memorable event that no one would forget. Here we are, two and a half weeks after our wedding and, we are still hearing from our guests how wonderful of a night our wedding was, because of Steve.

Thank you so much Steve! You are TRULY THE BEST.

Function 45 was recommended by another DJ that we wanted to book. He was already booked for the weekend that we wanted him so he suggested Steve and Jeff. They very were flexible with their schedule on our first meeting and the meetings after that. They are very easy and fun to talk to. I could tell right away that they know what they're doing. They had plenty of suggestions and it worked for us because we had no idea what we wanted to do. I just wanted really good music. Since Steve was not available on our wedding day, Jeff pretty much met with us a couple of times to discuss the program. I never thought a DJ could play such a big role in the tone and flow of an event, especially a wedding! I had a DO NOT PLAY list and Jeff made sure he didn't play those songs. Jeff is fantastic and more than just a DJ/Emcee - he took control of the entire night with the order of things in our program. We would've been so lost! The games kept everyone engaged. It was so awesome to see all our friends and family having so much fun. There was no dull moment at our wedding! He kept everyone on the dance floor! We still get compliments from everyone and they said it was the most fun wedding they've ever been to. We really got our money's worth and more! Jeff was the last one who left the reception, and made sure we had a great time. Thank you for making our wedding super fun and extra special. We just can't thank you enough for being an integral part of our wedding reception. YOU made the party!

Sincerely,
Jeff and Jasmine

We could not be happier that we chose Function 45 Event Entertainment, specifically Steve (and his wife Tanya) to emcee and DJ our wedding. Originally, we planned to talk to 2 or 3 DJs before making our decision. After speaking with Steve over the phone, however, we decided that we couldn't possibly find anyone better; we canceled the other interview and chose Function 45. We were unable to meet in person because my husband and I were in living in DC and planning our California wedding from a distance until we moved West. Steve is so much more than a DJ! He has a great voice and is an outstanding conversationalist. He’s also one of the nicest and most talented people I have ever met. Because he was emceeing our wedding and would inevitably be talking about us, he made it a point to get to know us. He drove from Orangevale to Sacramento and met us for dinner just to get a feel of our style. Then, about a month before the wedding, we met with him at his office and talked about the event. He gave us several fantastic ideas about how to get guests involved in the wedding reception so that they would be participating instead of just watching the action. Even though Steve had tons of suggestions culled from his prior experiences, he never took it personally when we decided against one of his ideas. He’s very respectful; he always defers to you and emphasizes that the couple should choose songs that mean something to them. I wanted to walk down the aisle to the piano introduction of a specific song and he worked with us to create a loop so that you wouldn’t hear the beat drop. Steve plays AMAZING music. He chose songs that I forgot how much I loved! Our floor was always packed and many our guests commented that we had the best DJ/Emcee/Music they had ever heard at a wedding! Most of all, I didn’t realize how much an emcee can set the mood and the tone. Steve is simply the best and we cannot recommend him highly enough!

I wish I could put into words how awesome Steve from Function 45 was at our 5/31/13 wedding. He absolutely is the one professional I hired who MADE the wedding. It has been two months and we are still getting told that our wedding was the most fun our guests have ever had at a wedding and I attribute most of that to Steve, who ran the show. He didn’t just play music. He made it interactive and fun for us and our guests. He had SO many unique, fun and totally unexpected ideas that we and our guests loved. His ideas made our wedding much more memorable and fun.
Steve did the music for our ceremony, which went perfectly. But the reception is where all the magic happened. It started with the hilarious introductions for our bridal party, Steve’s idea, which had people cracking up. After we finished dinner, we did all the traditional wedding “events”, which by the way Steve made way more fun than traditional DJ’s, especially the garter toss. Steve then somehow got everyone out on the dance floor, which stayed packed all night.
Steve also did the lighting for our reception, which turned out SO beautiful.
If you are looking for a DJ/MC for your wedding, seriously look no further. He was worth every penny. Take the advice that someone gave me…if you are looking for ways to cut your budget, and perhaps hire a friend or someone cheaper, don’t do it with the DJ. They were so right! I didn’t realize till I saw how amazing of a job Steve did how important the DJ/MC was. They can seriously make or break your event and turn it into a fun, memorable event for you and your guests, or they can just play music and you can watch half your guests leave after the cake cutting. I will be recommending him to all of my friends and family who get married in the future. Book him before he gets booked for your date!

Steve @ Function 45 did such a wonderful job at our wedding. He is very professional and also knows how to make you laugh. Steve @ Function 45 finds a way to make everything about you! Whether it be a photo booth or that perfect song, or the amazing lighting that he can do, he does it all and he makes it work! Our wedding wouldn't have been very organized if it wasn't for Steve @ Function 45 being there and making everything move so smoothly. All we kept hearing the day after our wedding was "Who was that DJ? He was Great!". I would highly recommend Steve @ Function 45 to service your wedding. Your missing out if you don't! Again, amazing job my friend. My wife and I are now even planning to reserve Steve for another event very soon. Wonderful job!!!

If you're looking for a good time...a time that you'll remember 10, 20 years...a lifetime...someone who puts his heart into it as if it was his own wedding or event, then I strongly recommend Steve. It's an experience that is indescribable; and you'll most definitely want to experience for yourself. I never once thought of the service of Steve Schon from Function 45 as a business transaction, but rather a family affair. I promise you that if you hire Steve, you will feel the same way.
Steve drove down to the Bay Area and met up with me to check out the venue. We rode together and talked about some ideas I had and he asked how the rest of the family was doing. He actually remembered my sisters (Steve was also the DJ at both my sister's weddings). It goes to show that it's not all just business, but that there is some heart that goes into Steve's work and he genuinely cares. To further prove my point...Function 45 is based out of Sacramento. Both my sisters receptions were in South San Francisco, and mine was in Half Moon Bay. That is a 2 hour drive down, and a 2 hour drive back, not to mention traffic. Steve didn't hesitate to accept our request to be our DJ in spite of the of the distance. In fact he drove home the same night to do another gig the next day! Talk about dedication!
Steve represents the true definition of professionalism. Steve's knowledge of the entertainment world is vast, so much so that I couldn't stump him with my 80's trivia, and I consider myself a music buff. His ability to adapt to last minute changes and recommend ideas where we would otherwise be lost, is uncanny.
This is one part of your special day you do not want to cut corners or take chances with. Hire someone who knows what they are doing, someone who cares who his clients are rather than someone who just thinks of you as another paycheck. Remember, it's not a business transaction, it's a family affair!
