Describe your DJ style:
Music Media provides stylish, professional club DJs that are experts in reading a crowd and mixing music.
Is there a limit to the amount of music that can be requested?
No, but we kindly ask that you only gives us a reasonable amount of song requests. For example; 8 hours of song requests for a 4 hour reception is not reasonable.
What is your usual attire?
Dark colored suits. We do not wear tuxedos or sparkly vests.
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
No. We're able to access any song through our DJ pools or iTunes.
How many other DJs do you work with?
5
What is the minimum amount of time you will DJ for?
4 hours
Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?
If the client is local, yes. Otherwise, we have a lot of experience dealing with out clients from all over the country or out of the country.
Do you specialize in any ethnic or international events?
No. We are well rounded in all areas of music and cultures.
Can the client submit a do-not-play list?
Absolutely.
Do you bring your own equipment?
Of course.
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
We offer an array of specialty lighting: Monogram lighting (gobo), Up-Lighting, pin spot lighting, etc.
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?
It takes us about an hour to setup, however, we always arrive on site 3 hours before guest arrival. We are self contained and do not require a table if one is not available.
Do you have any extra space requirements?
No.
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
No.
Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?
We are articulate emcees and more than happy to make all of your announcements and introductions that you request. However, our DJs are not there to overshadow your event, so we do prefer to keep our talking to a minimum. You can expect a confident emcee on the microphone, but not one who will embarrass you or any of your guests.
 
 FYI - If you are looking for an interactive emcee to play games and teach line dances, I’m afraid we would not be the best DJ company for your event.
How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?
We believe in creating the right vibe with the music that we play and letting the dance-floor happen organically. We don't rely on special dances or yelling into the microphone in order to motivate (manipulate) people into dancing. We are professional DJs with years of experience and know how to read a crowd. We feed off the crowds energy and play accordingly. If your DJ has an empty dance-floor, chances are he hasn't read the crowd correctly.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
We don't take breaks, however, if theres is a point in the evening where we are offered a meal (while the other guests are eating as well), we will take a meal break then.
Will you arrange for recorded music to play during your breaks?
Yes. We are always near by for any unplanned change in the schedule.
What is your backup plan in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
I'm happy to report that this has never happened in the history of Music Media, or in my DJ career. However, we always have a roster of available DJs on the day of your event in case of an unlikely emergency.
Do you book yourself for more than one event in a day?
No.
What is your overtime rate?
Depending on the event, anywhere between $100-$150 per hour.
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
No.
What is the required deposit to secure your services?
Depending on the package you choose, anywhere between $300-$750.

We were so pleased with the services that Music Media Entertainment provided us for our wedding. The owner James was very approachable and accommodating. He responded to questions immediately.
The DJ we had was absolutely fabulous. Henry played a great mix of music that both we and he had chosen for the cocktails. The dance was a blast. He totally read the crowd and played tunes to everyone's liking.
He even snuck in 2 encores at the end when no one wanted the dancing to end! It was a great party thanks to him- I don't think I left the dance floor all night!

My husband and I loved working with James. From the very first meeting, I knew we had picked the right DJ to oversee the music. He listened to our wants, was open to suggestions and I feel went above and beyond to make sure our day was what we had wanted. He did a fantastic job at installing the uplights which added a dramatic look to the reception along with incorporating "fog" from time to time during various dances. Which added to the fun! I would highly recommend James for any wedding or party event .

My wife and I had decided to get married at The Colony Palms Hotel in Palm Springs on October 20th 2012. We started to look at all the vendors and the DJ was one of the most important things to consider.

Our guest list had varied in age and we wanted to have music that everyone could enjoy. I called around and chatted with a few companies before reaching out to James. He was the best! He asked all the right questions and said he would get back to me with a few options. James always made himself available if I had specific questions.

James thought we should talk to DJ Henry. We scheduled a call with him and it could not have gone better. He asked what type of music we liked and explained how he normally works. He said that he plays music that feeds off the crowd and preferred not to work on a set list unless we really wanted that. He wanted some of our must haves and he would take it from there.

The day of the wedding Henry was there on time, extremely professional and helped out with anything audio related. He got the party started immediately and everyone was on the dance floor within minutes of the music starting. My dad (Midwest Guy) came up to me at some point and said, “I have never heard a DJ play your music mixed in with my music. I love it!”

After the wedding both James and Henry checked in to make sure everything was satisfactory and we explained it was perfect. A month after our wedding a number of our friends asked for their contact info and some even requested the wedding night’s set list. We unfortunately had not requested Henry to record it, but I reached out to the guys, and it was saved on Henry’s DJ program so he mixed it for us a few weeks later.

I cannot express enough how much we enjoyed working with Music Media Entertainment. We still have friends and family talking about the night. I would recommend them a hundred times over and if you want an amazing event you should immediately call them up.

Music Media Entertainment was perfect for our wedding! My husband was fairly specific about the kind of music we wanted at our wedding and our DJ, Henry, pulled it together perfectly for us. We specifically wanted a DJ that understood how to do mashups and read a crowd, but wouldn't push us to have a ton of electronic equipment we didn't want. (We held our wedding in a field outside of LA to get away from all of the fuss). Henry was brilliant and our guests danced all night long. Henry's sound equipment was professional top of the line, while his own professionalism in dealing with us also exceptional.

Thank you Music Media Entertainment.

James was even better than we could have imagined. The dance floor was packed the whole time. And leading up to the event he was easy to deal with and extremely professional. I would recommend him to anyone and would hire him again in a heartbeat.

James was recommended to us by our coordinator as a great wedding DJ that was also reliable. Having someone who could provide both good sound for our ceremony as well as keep the dancing going into the night was important to us. James definitely delivered. He was very flexible in setting up an appointment, and we ended up meeting him at a wedding while he was setting up. He seemed like a cool guy and also very professional, and we could tell he had good equipment.

From that point it was really easy – over the weeks approaching our wedding we compiled a list of “must play” and “must not play” songs and sent it to him. He even helped us find some of our processional music by suggesting the Vitamin String Quartet.

James is a great DJ and we highly recommend him!

James was awesome! He's been doing events around SoCal for years and it shows. He has a way of reading the crowd like no other. We had many comments later that they've never seen a dance floor at a wedding be busy all night. Usually it gets going after people get their liquid courage!
