Our DJ style is nonstop FUN! We are able to DJ with seamless transitions eliminating "Dead Air" that can ruin the atmosphere of your party. We are able to do what most DJ can't.......Actually DJ!!

We dress to impress! Black tuxedo pants, Dress shirt, tie, jacket really whatever the bride wants! We want to ensure that the guest know that we are the DJ and not a member of the bridal party.

We have access to over a million songs! If you want it...We will make sure you you have it!

We currently have 5 DJ's on our staff.
What is the minimum amount of time you will DJ for?
Five hours is the lowest time frame we offer.
Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?
We offer different consultation arrangements based upon what package our customers choose. We encourage our brides to meet with us to ensure that we cater to their needs.
Do you specialize in any ethnic or international events?
We are an all occasion DJ company.
Do you bring your own equipment?
We do! We use top of the line professional DJ equipment. Mackie speakers, Serato Scratch Live, Technic turntables, Rane TTM57 DJ Mixers the list goes on and on. We maintain our equipment to ensure that it works flawlessly event after event!

We offer a wide variety of special effect light depending again on what package is chosen.
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 will arrive at least one hour before our scheduled start time. Usual setup time is a half hour but don't be surprised if we cross paths in the morning! We have never started late and have absolutely no intention of that ever happening!
Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?
We do a fantastic job as emcees! We do the formalities and interact with the crowd just enough not to take away from any of the bride and grooms spotlight! Who wants a comedian as their DJ?
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
We do not require the bride to count us in their meal count. Remember that you will have a few guests that will RSVP but will not attend. The hall will make sure that we eat after all we are representing them as well that day!

What breaks??

He was very unprofessional from the start, he showed up 45 minutes late to meet me to sign a contract. That should have been a huge red flag there but he was a friend of a friend and was supposedly the best dj out there. At my outdoor wedding he didn't hook up a microphone like he was supposed to so my guests couldn't hear my ceremony. During the reception he was either no where to be found or was basically sleeping up against the wall. He was not very energetic and rarely talked into the microphone to get the crowd going. If this wasn't bad enough to top it off he told his friend which was a guest at my wedding that he was purposely playing bad music and was glad no one was dancing so he could go home early.

Derek was awesome! Very flexible when we booked our original meeting. He is extremely responsive via email and phone. My husband and I didn't want an "over-the-top" production at the wedding and Derek definitely puts the bride and groom first on the wedding day! He had a difficult crowd at our wedding, as the "older" crowd stayed pretty late and he had to mix a lot of music to keep all wedding party guests happy. He has a turntable and can easily switch a song if the crowd isn't responding to it. He performed the music for our ceremony and reception. When we had our final discussion a week or so before the wedding, he told me he didn't have to be close by the actual ceremony, as he was very aware that the photographers would be there and he didn't want his DJ equipment being in the background of the pictures. True to his word, I didn't even see where he was posted until our recessional when I spotted him by some trees in the far "corner" of our outdoor ceremony :-)

Derek has a great personality, a lot of knowledge and experience and provided a wonderful atmosphere for our wedding day. We would highly recommend Music on the Move for your wedding!

Derek provided music for our reception and he was amazing. He made sure the energy stayed up and people stayed on the dance floor, catering to the different generations and MULTIPLE/different styles of music requested by myself and other ballroom/latin professional dancers. He integrated everything with ease! Everything flowed nicely.
He was also a pleasure to deal with. Didn't attack us for business at the bridal show where we met him, was calm and collected, and took care of everything with ease. By far my easiest vendor to interact with throughout the planning process.

Music on the Move did an awesome job at my reception. Any questions or issues I faced were answered in a timely fashion. They made themselves available to me as a resource agent and helped with other aspects of my wedding not concerning music. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to have a killer time at their reception, thank you!!!

The whole experience was wonderful. We had so many of our guests compliment us on the music and atmosphere. The DJ did an excellent job working in our requests and expanding on our tastes, very alert to guest responsiveness to songs and seamless transitions. The preparation process went very well, we had no concerns coming up to the wedding day. The DJ kept the evening moving at a good pace and far surpassed our expectations for quality for the cost. Would definitely recommend.
