So you’re shopping for a wedding DJ and what you’re really here wondering is, “What makes this DJ different than all the other ones I’ve looked at today?” Let’s cut to the chase then! Here are 10 unique + different things about Revolution Weddings.

1. Revolution Weddings is southern Califoria's premier girl-powered wedding entertainment company, offering DJ, videography, photography, day-of coordination, photo booth, lighting, candy buffet, lounge rental, + lots of other fabulous services!

2. 95% of the events we handle are weddings.

3. DJ Staci is bilingual, specializes in intercultural weddings, + has a full library of Spanish music.

4. DJ Staci uses a one-of-a-kind facade (portable secreen) to hide her speakers + cables so your wedding looks less like a rock concert and more like an elegant affair.

5. All DJ packages include custom voice-over soundbites. Listen to a sample here.

6. I offer a classic, video photo booth, of course, but I also have a Polaroid photo station.

7. Choose your own dance floor lighting look! The dance floor lights will be the lighting in probably half of your wedding pictures–shouldn’t it look the way you want + fit the mood, style, and tone of your your event?

8. I make personalized announcements to share your love story (or inside jokes).

9. Advance communication with your vendor team is not done by many DJs…it’s standard practice for me. See a sample detailed script/timeline that I prep + share with your vendors here.

10. You may notice there is no client "log-in section" on my website. No impersonal, automated planning system here. I will personally interview you and your fiance to prepare.

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, Hip Hop, Jazz, Motown, Oldies, Pop, R&B, Rock, Soul, Swing
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Describe your DJ style:
My focus is on keeping the wedding flowing, upbeat, and fun...not on scratching records or looking cool sitting next to my subwoofer. I'm organized, energetic, relaxed, and experienced. I read the crowd and gauge my level of involvement and "rowdiness" on the group.
Is there a limit to the amount of music that can be requested?
No. But a "must play list" that is too long does restrict my ability to read the crowd using my expertise and experience. To get a good idea of how I manage a bride's playlist, see this blog post: http://blog.revolutionwed.com/2013/09/16/monica--ken--japanese-mexican-fusiontil-the-cops-shut-us-down.aspx
What is your usual attire?
Asking the bride what her colors are and how formal the event is is one of my pre-interview questions. I wear more or less what the bride and I agree on in advance from a cocktail dress to khakis.
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
No.
How many other DJs do you work with?
I'm a one-woman show. I have other DJs I network with, but I do not have employees.
What is the minimum amount of time you will DJ for?
Generally 3 hours.
Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?
Yes.
Do you specialize in any ethnic or international events?
Intercultural weddings are my specialty. I do speak Spanish and have a full library of Spanish music. I spent 3 years doing destination weddings in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.
Can the client submit a do-not-play list?
Songs, singers, and bands to avoid is one of the things I cover with the client in my pre-wedding interview.
Do you bring your own equipment?
Yes.
What (if any) special equipment, such as disco balls or lighting, is offered with your service?
I offer a 2,000 watt subwoofer, 2 x 15" and 2 x 12" active speakers, 3 UHF wireless mics, a UHF lapel mic, and a corded mic. My dance floor lighting includes: LED light, 2 strobes, a red/green laser light, and two mini spinning disco balls. I also have a Hurricane 700 fog machine and 24" black light.
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?
I bring my own table. I need only 2 standard 3-prong outlets (one for the light equipment, one for the sound equipment). I like 2-3 hours to set up as I don't care to be rushed. If the venue can not accommodate that, I can be set up in one hour.
Do you have any extra space requirements?
6' x 10'
Do you have a sign or banner that you use at events?
No.
Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?
MC/event host is included free. I do not chatter on the mic. If something is appropriate (such as explaining the inside joke of a song just requested), I will announce that.
How would you motivate the crowd if no one is dancing?
If there are fewer than 3-4 people dancing, I go out on the floor and dance. If I have an assistant at the wedding, they will be dancing too when the floor is getting sparse. I also participate in all line dances or YMCA type songs (if the bride has OKed that kind of music). I also offer a line dance lesson for the guests during the reception (such as Cupid Shuffle, The Wobble, or Payaso de Rodeo).
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
Yes, I require a vegetarian meal. No, I do not need to take a break to eat.
Will you arrange for recorded music to play during your breaks?
I do not take breaks.
What is your backup plan in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
That has never happened. If it did happen, I have DJ friends I meet at bridal shows and so on that I can call.
Do you book yourself for more than one event in a day?
I may book a ceremony in the morning (I'm also an officiant) and DJ that same night. Actually last Saturday, I DJed at a store promotion from 11:00 to 3:00 in Escondido then in Poway I DJed a Halloween party from 8:00 to 11:00. I do not book two wedding DJ gigs on the same day.
What is your overtime rate?
$199/hr (available in 15 minute increments)
Do you charge for travel expenses? If yes, how much do you charge?
No travel fees.
What is the required deposit to secure your services?
25% non-refundable deposit

DJ Staci had so many great ideas to make our wedding extra special and unique. She arrived on time, was very communicative with our other vendors, and paved the way for an epic dance party that my friends are still talking about! One thing that I think is unique about Staci's services (which we really appreciated) was that during the event she was more like a club DJ than a "cheesy" wedding DJ. She kept her announcements to a minimum (per our request) and just let the music speak for itself, but discreetly came to check in with us to make sure she was covering all the bases throughout the evening. Thank you Staci!

Staci is amazing - she has a great vibe for what people want, not only with the bride and groom, but with the bridal party, parents, and of course, our guests. She plans ahead of time so we could have a really organized schedule that really gave a feel of what our personalities were like, and she has great ideas and 'tricks' to get people on the dance floor to create a fun and energetic atmosphere. She is amazing and I would recommend her to anyone!

For a very special occasion, I could not stress how important it was to finding someone who could understand my needs. Her attention to detail and meticulous persona granted me the assurance of her doing a "great job", from the perspective of a critic, myself.
Her professionalism (being on time, patience, and diligent) as well as her fees earned her my overall rating of 5.0/5.0. In fact I would recommend her to anyone who is looking forward to having a great celebration.

You're awesome Bright! Thank you so much for your kind words....and to all of the ladies reading--romance is not dead! Bright spent A YEAR planning a SURPRISE 10-year-anniversary/vow renewal for his wife Patricia. He had a wedding dress, ring, cake, party favors, live musicians, flowers, EVERYTHING waiting for her. It was a pleasure meeting you and being a part of your unique event!

I'm so glad we had Staci at our event! 200+ Marines at a Birthday Ball can get pretty tricky, but her selection of music, timing, lighting, and ability to read the crowd really made our night perfect. From start to finish, she was on top of everything! From sitting down with me and planning our event to the last song of the evening, Staci really covered every detail. Everyone was complimenting the DJ! We definitely want her back next year and would recommend her to anyone who needs a friendly, professional, and experienced DJ!

Staci was so wonderful! I had a vintage themed wedding at a very vintage location. She did a wonderful job finding classic songs to fit the theme of the wedding as requested. Everything flowed nicely. She even encouraged our non-dancing family/friends to get up and enjoy in the festivities. I would use her services again and agian! Without her i'm not sure how our wedding day would have gone.

Staci was our DJ for our Big Bear wedding and she was such a great help to make our event special and fun. She was very responsive to emails, even gave me suggestions for songs or what not to do at your wedding, which was helpful. She even added some special touches to our first dance, father-daughter dance, and the mother-son dance where we said something special about our dancing partners. Also, there was a surprise "gift" that was brought that Staci did not think that went with our wedding. So, she came to inform me before the ceremony, which I appreciate very much! as it was a belly dancer and our wedding was a vintage rustic theme. I was horrified, so she made a plan to make sure the belly dancer did not go on. Thank you!
We also had her mother, Cindy, was also our day of coordinator! I love Cindy! She is incredibly nice and helpful. She made sure that everything was perfect, nothing was forgotten, and she even brought a plate for my daughter so we could stay seated and enjoy our meal. Thank you so much! You both are a great team! I can't wait to see the footage from the wedding. Everyone had fun, we got compliments from family about how fun the evening was.

Staci was an incredible DJ for our wedding reception. I am so happy I found her when I was searching for an outside DJ other than being stuck with the Dreams PV "in house" DJ. All my guests loved her and she played everything we asked for. Staci is a very easy going DJ and a very good one at the same time. She works at your event for you and takes the time to understand exactly what you want, from what song to play for dinner to helping you coordinate your first dance with the song. Staci is a DJ I would recommend to all my friends looking for a DJ at their wedding! She is a great and honest person inside and out. When I found her, I was rest assured that she would be great for the job and to no surprise she was exceptionally great! :)

Staci was very accommodating and kept the party going for our small wedding. I would recommend Staci for any future weddings that may be coming up. One special little surprise that I didn't know would happen was a short video that she included on her blog. Good luck with your future endeavors Staci!

We used DJ Staci (DJ Revolution) based off the reviews I had read from a couple other brides on Best Destination Wedding. I liked the survey she had on her site- very thorough. Just what I was looking for! Music was SUPER important to us. We have been to so many weddings where the dinner music is so bad or the dance music, or vice versa. I didn’t want to risk it using the DJ the venue provides.
Staci was very nice and down to earth. We spoke on the phone and went over every detail. She even asked my color scheme so she can coordinate her dress. Overall she did a good job she made sure to come over a couple times during dinner and ask us when we wanted the dance music or speeches to start, etc which definitely showed her extensive wedding experience, but didn't assume we wanted to do what any other bride would do and when. I wish she would have let me know that she required an assistant from the start because I had to go back and add a dinner plate and re-budget my spreadsheet but overall it was no big deal.
I also enjoyed the lighting she provided. It was the same color as my main wedding color (purple) and looked beautiful in pictures! She played all of my airier songs and gauged the music based on our reaction to a certain song or the amount of dancing happening. Overall, I really enjoyed the experience with Staci and would most definitely recommend her to anyone!
