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

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 was absolutely amazing at our wedding!! My husband and I first met him in August 2015 and were blown away by all of his ideas. It truly was so much more than just the music. Fast forward to a few weeks before our wedding when we broke down the details which was an even better experience than before. We knew our wedding was going to be fantastic. It wasn't just fun, it really was us. Knowing my husband was a sports fanatic, Steve incorporated sports in a fun way such as introducing our bridal party as athletes (the groomsmen died and went to heaven) and using a football signed by the bridal party for the garter throw. While in the process I was nearly tackled by the overly excited men in our wedding, it is one of the BEST pictures we have recieved. The winning groomsman gloated all evening long about catching it. I danced on the dance floor until the last second. My husband even had to ask Steve to extend the dancing a half hour for me. I can't even stop there. We rented a photo booth through Steve. I had not wanted one but my mother in law was dying for one and was willing to pay (pick your battles ladies!). Well this wasn't your usual photo booth. We didn't just get a couple of strips of photos people thought to give us. The next day when we brought Steve his final check, he gave us a thumb drive with ALL the pictures taken and EVERY video people filmed in the booth! We spent our afternoon on the computer laughing as our open bar started to take effect and smiling as we saw family members who bent over backwards to attend tell us such thoughtful messages. Now I won't tell my mother in law she was right, but it was truly worth every cent. We no joke recieved texts from friends and family members the next day raving about how great Steve was! Our guests couldn't get over how great everything was and how much fun they had.

You won't go wrong with Steve and Function 45.

My advice: stop looking and book now!!!

Steve is the best DJ, hands down. I have dreamt for him to be my wedding DJ ever since I met him at a friend's wedding 3 years ago. He blew me away at their wedding. He was so involved and so upbeat and unique. I called him to get a quote and ask questions. AWe would talk for an hour at a time. I could tell he really cared about me and making my wedding amazing. My husband and I met with him to go over details and we booked him right then and there. I talked so highly about him that my husband didn't have any doubts. I knew we would have the most amazing night with Steve as our DJ.

As our wedding day approached, we met with Steve for wedding day details and he took his time with us. He gave us advice and really got us excited. I could not wait for our guests to experience what Steve had to offer. I had some issues with my original coordinator on the night of our rehearsal and I immediately called Steve. He made me feel 100% better and calmed me down. He reminded me that no matter what, our night would be perfect and that he would do everything he could to make sure of it.

Our wedding truly was perfect. I owe so much to Steve. Although our guests were party animals, Steve made sure to keep it going all night long. He did so many unique things. Our bridal party grand entrance was so fun, we introduced them with "what you know and what you might not know". For the buffet line, our guests played bride and groom trivia to see who was next. I could go on and on about what I loved. We also had a photo-booth, which I highly recommend. Our guests loved that little detail and we had so much fun checking out the pictures and videos the next day.

Our guests have complimented on how great our DJ was. Thank you so much Steve. You and your crew were so amazing. Geoffrey and I are so thankful to have had you as our DJ on the best day/night of our lives.

Steve customized his services to make our wedding as special as possible. He spent several hours on the phone going over every detail so there were no surprises, and gave us many choices - everything from music to whether we wanted guests to take pictures with their phone or not. He truly emceed the whole night and was pivotal to the flow of the wedding. We gave him a lot of freedom to do what he does best: get the crowd in the palm of his hand and get them involved with every part of the evening. I am still getting great feedback from the guests that he was FUN and funny! The dance floor was rockin' all night...and hey...as Steve told me before our wedding day, that's the pride of a great DJ/emcee!

I hired Function 45 for the wedding of my daughter. Steve and his team were awesome!

I am a veteran live sound engineer who is particular about the caliber of sound system components, and about the resulting sound quality. I was picky ahead of time about the loudspeaker models and the microphone, which are the most critical parts. The "Elvis" mic Steve rigged on a wireless stand was perfect. The speakers sounded great. Function 45 delivered all the quality that I expected, which was a lot!

More than that, Steve drove the event forward with appropriate music selections and an understated style of master-of-ceremonies patter. He helped make things flow smoothly, even when parts of the wedding and reception did not go as planned. He had musical choices ready for the little ones who were running around, and a "Decades" sequence which got the gray-haired folks up on the floor to mix with everybody else. Steve kept the focus on bringing two families together in spirited celebration, and it worked.

Steve brought a crew that was efficient in setting up, and professional in demeanor. The dance floor lighting was fun yet appropriate to our budget. My daughter was very happy with the photo booth, which was great for keeping the kids occupied, and fun for the adults!

All those who commented to me about the wedding and reception said that Steve was the magic that made the evening so fun. I agree!

Steve from Function 45 is a very professional and genuine person to work with. When my wife and I had our first meeting with him, we were struck by how energetic and enthusiastic he was about his profession and his company. We found that we were able to talk freely and comfortably with Steve. We were relying on him to bring fun, entertainment, and a playful demeanor to our wedding. And boy, did he deliver!

For our wedding we chose to have him DJ, provide ceremony music and speakers, and provide up-lighting for the reception. As a DJ, we have never found anyone close to his raw entertainment skills. He was actually able to get every single guest dancing for a good hour or two, which was amazing considering we had some older guests and some guests who didn't even speak English. This was a testament to how he was able to bring energy and fun to everyone, and provide some method of connecting with each guest. As far as the music, the quality was great and the noise wasn't too loud. It was loud enough to dance to, and yet our eardrums weren't blown out by the end of the event. The music and voices during the ceremony were perfectly easy to hear and understand. The up-lighting was also great, and we loved the flexibility of being able to choose any color on the spot with quick and easy adjustments.

When you set up a meeting with Steve (we insist), you will see for yourselves how easy and simple he is to work with. He has electronic forms he follows to make sure all questions pertaining to the event are asked and answered. He works with your schedule and doesn't mind phone calls when an in-person meeting proves difficult. He listens to your requests and helps guide you in the right direction when deciding on songs, games, etc. We won't give everything away, but he has some very interesting and unique games he can organize at the wedding to bring fun and laughter to all of the guests. Very highly recommended, and thank you for all of your work Steve!

We could not have been happier with Steve! We enjoyed working with him in the pre-meetings and he absolutely 'got' our Vision. He even had some great ideas that absolutely improved our wedding (no spoilers - I'll let him surprise you ;) ).

Day-of he nailed it - he adeptly wrangled the guests as well as the wedding party, served as an adept Master of Ceremonies, kept us on schedule and really got the party going when the dancing started. He juggled our disparate musical requests and had both 'adults' and 'kids' dancing alongside each other.

After the wedding both our parents (and others) raved about Steve and how he made our event so successful, and we agree!!

Thanks, Steve, for being an integral part of our special day!!

Words cannot truly express how incredible Steve was. I had very high expectations for our wedding and Steve blew it out of the water. I have been to many weddings and Steve was by FAR the best DJ I have ever seen at a wedding. He is a Bride's dream come true. He runs the show, keeps you on track with timing and makes it so you can just relax and enjoy your reception. I love how he does a custom song for the first dance, and makes that special moment even more special. He did so many fun activities to get the guests involved in the reception and to get them up and moving. We had guests tell us they never dance at weddings, and they were up and dancing the whole time. He had so many fun and original ideas that made the wedding one for the books. We have had many guests tell us it was the best wedding they have ever been too and how amazing Steve was. One of our guests is a DJ and he said he was blown away by Steve as well, that he was the best he has ever seen. Thanks to Steve I had my dream wedding. He is the absolute best! If you want an experience of a lifetime then Steve is your man!! He is phenomenal! You will not be disappointed if you go with Steve, he is truly the best!

Steve definitely made our wedding day the best it could possibly be! I would recommend him to anyone looking for a wedding DJ. He also provided the photo booth for our reception which was a big hit with our guests. He made our first dance very special, and he made sure everyone was having a good time dancing the night away! He was very professional and made accommodations for last minute changes. He's truly an amazing DJ/MC, you would be lucky to have him!

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!!
