It's Your Night's "non-cheesy" approach and their passion for making "one-of-a-kind" events, to match the personalities of couples, have put them on the wish list of brides planning their big day! Their goal is to engage guests without playing songs like the "chicken dance" so they end up staying until the very end. It's Your Night also offers event decor lighting such as floral pin-spotting, color room washes, and more to really customize the look of your wedding and make it one of a kind.

William has been providing entertainment for wedding receptions and other special events since 1998. His experience includes many years as a radio personality on one of Dallas/Ft. Worth's top radio stations, 94.9 KLTY.




He has integrated into his business philosophy a high level of organization, attention to detail, integrity, personal care, and interest in his clients.

As a Wedding DJ, his goal is to make everything from the initial planning process to the last dance at the reception less stressful and relaxing for couples and their families. "It's important to me that everyone has fun along the way and I'm committed to making everything run smoothly throughout your entire event!" says William. Read less

INFO FOR DJ

What music genres are in your collection?
50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, Acoustic, Big Band, Classic Rock, Classical, Country, Dance, Folk, Funk, Gospel, Hip Hop, Jazz, Motown, Oldies, Orchestra, Pop, Punk Rock, R&B, Rock, Soul, Strings, Swing, World
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Describe your DJ style:
Very laid back and classy. We're not cheesy and never play songs like the chicken dance, YMCA, and the Macarena unless our clients ask us to. We also don't talk on the mic for no reason. Some DJs love to hear themselves talk but we believe in "less is more."
What is your usual attire?
Formal black tuxedo with a black shirt and black long tie. No glitter vests or crazy top hats...
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
No way! We'll be sure to have the correct versions of the songs they request.
How many other DJs do you work with?
We have three DJs with different pricing and personalities...William Ryan, Richie DeMeglio, and Presley Miller
What is the minimum amount of time you will DJ for?
Any length of time is fine with us. Our pricing is a flat-rate fee for the night.
Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?
Absolutely! It's rare that we book a couple without meeting them first. We truly believe that when hiring a DJ it's very important to find someone that clicks with your personality. The only real way to know if we're the right fit for a wedding is to sit down with one of us face to face.
Can the client submit a do-not-play list?
You bet! We encourage you to submit a "don't play" list and you can trust we'll actually honor it even if we think the songs you list will be good songs to play.
Do you bring your own equipment?
Of course, and the thing that's different about us is that we include all of the equipment needed to make an event sound good. This means we usually set up more than just two speakers like most DJs to achieve the best sound at your wedding.
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
We offer full event decor lighting design. Check out our website for tons of examples.
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?
We usually need about two hours to set up and test all of our equipment. Most clients have the venue provide a table that's draped to match the room but we can bring our own if needed.
Do you have any extra space requirements?
Nothing out of the ordinary. All of our equipment fits on one standard 6 foot banquet table so we just need enough room to stand behind it. Our speakers are very compact so they'll usually fit tucked away anywhere in a room.
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
We don't even let your guests know our company name over the microphone and certainly don't display any banners or signs at your wedding. If a guest wants to know who we are they'll come up and ask for a business card.
Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?
We emcee all of our events. We're all very comfortable being the spokesperson at an event. We don't talk unnecessarily though. Guests aren't at an event to hear us talk but they usually need an emcee to help guide them through the events of the evening.
How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?
A lot of DJs try to motivate the crowd by playing silly games or forcing them out on the dance floor. We've even seen a lot get on the dance floor with their head-set microphone on to lead dances like the chicken dance. We never do stuff like this but instead play great music that will get the guests involved...all without the cheesy games!
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
Nope. We usually don't have time to eat at events with all of the things going on so we tell our clients not to include us in their meal count. We also feel it's unprofessional for the emcee to sit down and eat in front of the guests while they're at a wedding. Just our personal opinion.
What is your backup plan in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
We network with other local DJs and have agreements set-up with them just in case something were to happen.
Do you book yourself for more than one event in a day?
No, because we offer unlimited performance time we only do one event a day.
What is your overtime rate?
We don't charge anything for overtime. Our fee is simply for the entire wedding.
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
Depends on how far we're traveling. If it's within a couple of hours from us then we don't usually charge anything for travel. We've done several out of the area weddings and we usually just charged a little for mileage and a room to spend the night before and/or after the event.
What is the required deposit to secure your services?
We only charge a minimal deposit of $500 to book our services instead of 50% like most companies.

Thanks to William our reception was absolutely perfect!! When I first saw the reception hall I was breathless! He transformed the room with his lighting into the most elegant romantic atmosphere. As a DJ he was phenomenal!! There was not one dull moment and our guests danced all night long! Everyone was very impressed and I received so many compliments about the music and lighting. Not only was he our DJ and did our lighting but he also was the guy that held all the vendors together. He personally contacted all of my vendors and created the timeline and made sure they were aware of what and when things were to happen the day of my wedding. He also did a fantastic job of keeping us on the timeline that we had discussed and taking care of everything at the reception so we could just enjoy ourselves and be worry free on our special day. You can tell William really cares about making your once in a lifetime wedding unforgettable. I can't say enough good things about him and there is no doubt in my mind that if I ever needed a DJ again he would definitely be the guy that I call.

Presley provided the music, the sound and the extra lighting needed for our daughter's wedding and reception. He played all of the requested music by the bride and groom and even music for the parents. He definitely was easy to work with and was willing to accomodate any taste in music. He worked well with our wedding planner in meeting the timeline for the entire event. We appreciate his contributing to the overall success of the event!

William took our wedding to another level! The most important thing for my husband and I was that our guests have fun and be on the dance floor. William made that happen. He catered the music to our guests and quickly figured out what got guests dancing! The lighting changed our venue (Arlington Hall) from pretty and traditional to fun and contemporary. The purple back lighting made a HUGE difference and made it feel like a PARTY! He was by far our favorite vendor. William was easy to work with, fun and you could tell that he wanted to make your wedding a success. William was also super organized and made sure we stayed on our timeline all night. We cannot thank him enough. I will be recommending him to all my friends that get married.

William was the perfect DJ. I could not have asked for anything better. He was very professional throughout the whole planning process and made sure that he knew everything needed for that night. He provided a lot of guidance that we needed and was very flexible! It was so nice to not have to worry about how the reception was going to work, because we knew we could trust William.

We received so many compliments about the music. Our guests thought my husband and I had picked out all the songs. But it was all William! You will not be disappointed when you pick It's Your Night to DJ your event!

Richie DeMeglio was the DJ for our destination wedding on our ranch property and he did such a fantastic job. All night guests kept coming up to me and telling me how much they enjoyed the music and the fun atmosphere that Richie created. He was intuitive with what music to play for the crowd as the night progressed and he was great about honoring all of our requests we made during our consultation meetings before the wedding. He kept our entire night running smoothly and acted as a master of ceremonies for us which was great since we did not have a day-of coordinator to do so. He stayed very late because popular demand kept him playing for hours--the guests would not let him leave! Thanks Richie for making our wedding an unforgettable event!
