Describe your DJ style:
At Something New Entertainment, we think YOUR style is more important! We specialize in creating a celebration that expresses your unique tastes and personalities. We want to play the songs that you and your guests love best to keep your party fun and memorable until the very end of the evening! What's your dream for your wedding? You can count on Something New Entertainment to share your vision!
What is your usual attire?
We dress appropriate to your event. Generally, our gentlemen wear black and white tuxedos and our ladies wear neutral-colored evening attire. If your wedding is more casual or has a theme, we are happy to adjust based on your preferences.
If you do not have one of the songs pre-requested by the client, do you require that they provide it?
We will make every effort to obtain your special requests for your event at no charge. We ask that couples finalize their special requests two weeks prior to the event to ensure that we have all of your favorites available. However, if this is not possible, we'll be happy to use your personal copy.
What is the minimum amount of time you will DJ for?
Our minimum time is generally four hours, though we do recommend a minimum length of five hours -- one hour for cocktails, one hour for dinner, one hour for special events, and two hours for dancing.
Is the client able to meet the DJ before booking?
Absolutely! We believe that it's important for you to have an opportunity to meet with the Lead DJ for your event well in advance of your wedding day! We will spend time with you talking about your own sense of style, favorite music, must-play and do-not-play lists, and going over the schedule of events for your reception with you.
Do you bring your own equipment?
We have complete, professional-grade equipment, including speakers, stands, mixer, computer, microphones, and music.
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 normally arrive one hour prior to your event start time to set up. We do not charge for set-up time. We request that the hall have electricity and a small table available to us. If a table is not available, please let us know in advance, and we will make other arrangements for a table.
Do you usually emcee the event or talk between songs?
Your Lead DJ will serve as your Master of Ceremonies (MC or emcee), and will provide a professional voice for the announcement of your special events. Generally, we do not talk between songs with the exception of making these special announcements.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
We are delighted to have a meal at your event if you are so gracious to provide us with one! However, this is not required, and if this is not possible, simply let us know in advance, and we will make other arrangements. We will eat in shifts so that your event is always staffed.

Something New Entertainment was more than a DJ service for our wedding. They were pseudo-wedding planners, ensuring that every little detail was taken care of and checked in case we wanted anything else. SNE did our sound for the ceremony, which was wonderful given the many ceremony music requests we made. They also did our music for the reception, which was excellent! They even led us in a line dance or two. They also did a wonderful job at a simple, warm lighting design that provided additional lighting for the room and ambiance. All in all, SNE is a vendor that you can't be without!

Sarah and David gave us the opportunity to provide some wonderful solutions to their event needs for their October 2013 wedding at beautiful Patterson Fruit Farm. We were so pleased to be able to ensure that Sarah had the perfect music for her wedding ceremony, as well as uplighting carefully designed to compliment this venue's rustic architecture, and a lighted monogram to match their stationery. It was so wonderful to be able to celebrate with them, especially through the sharing of their Love Story in a location so significant to their proposal story! Wishing you all the "Appley Ever After" the future has to offer you!

Anna-Jeannine did all of the lighting work and our backdrop for our reception and it was absolutely beautiful! The up lighting gave the room a serene glow and the backdrop really made the head table stand out. She even designed a personalized monogram to light up our dance floor! Our head table was track lighted and also our cake and candy bar were pin spotted. She really came through on everything we discussed and it took my breath away how amazing everything looked. We have received many compliments on the lighting and it looked awesome in all of the pictures! I can’t thank her enough for turning our hotel ball room into my dream reception venue!

It was such a pleasure to light Amy and Ryan's wedding! Hotel ballrooms are created to be neutral, so that they can serve the widest possible variety of events, and the Sheraton Suites in Cuyahoga Falls is no exception -- a very lovely, but very neutral facility that served as the "blank canvas" for Amy's awesome 1940's Love Letter inspired affair! Amy chose a lovely shade of pinky-lavender, and we built the design around her theme with luxe pewter crinkle crapery, a splash of skintone-flattering light on the headtable, feature lighting for the candy buffet and cake table, and a lighted monogram with a "postmark" -- the perfect "stamp" on this lovely day! We're so glad you loved it, Amy! We loved creating your lightscape! <3, Anna-Jeannine

When we hired Something New Entertainment to be our MC and lighting and drapery designers I wasn't sure of what we would get. I knew it would be nice but I wasn't prepared for how awesome everything was. From the pre-planning to the wedding day they were very professional and outstanding. Justin and Anna-Jeannine were not just "the music" they were there to meet our every need during the reception. The lighting and the drapery added a beautiful touch to our reception. It made the atmosphere so much more elegant.

When we first met Tina, her daughter (Cindy), and Cindy's now Mother-in-Law, Debbie, we knew we were a great match. It was wonderful to be able to focus in with this family on creating a beautiful, personalized celebration that fit Mark and Cindy's unique style! There was a lot to work with -- the families are very involved in the local collegiate wrestling community, the parents of the bride had hosted their own wedding reception in the same space, years ago, and the bride had a very elegant, vintage decor vision that allowed us to create some wonderful solutions for the special look and special events for this event, including a soft wash of amber uplighting, custom drapery integrated into the existing wood-framed mirrors behind the head table, and a sports-inspired grand entrance we will remember for many years to come! What a night! <3

Justine and Anna-Jeanine did a wonderful job at our wedding. They were prepared and professional, and the lights they set up in our reception venue looked great. DJAJ designed our monogram using our wedding invite as inspiration and it came out so cool! They kept the evening flowing and stuck to our "play" and "do not play" lists. Would recommend!

I cannot say enough wonderful things about SNE. The entire team went above and beyond to make us comfortable, and happy with our day. They made us feel special, calm, and were amazing! Anna Jeannine was a great officiant and was a perfect fit for our perfect day.

Chris and Amy's October 2012 wedding at Falls River Square was a joyful celebration that united longtime friends across continents! We had such a great time working with them to make sure that everyone felt at home among family, including a personalized wedding ceremony script complete with a memorial candle ceremony, tapestry weaving, and handfasting, as well as uplighting to compliment their orange and pink color scheme, and a carved-in-bark textured lighted monogram. One of the biggest highlights of the evening was definitely their EPIC choreographed first dance. Check it out -- pinned on our Pinterest Board called Epic Choreography!

Something New is great to work with and provides excellent customer service and an awesome planning website. The DJ was very personable and would often check with my husband and I if we needed drinks or anything. The DJ did need to command a little more attention from my guests and possibly be a little louder on the microphone as I had many guests tell me they didn't realize the cake cutting was occurring. The music was great and requests where all played.

Another vendor recommended by my brother. They were great and listened to us throughout the whole planning. It was a little slow in the beginning and when I went over and told them to get it going they did just that. Our outline wasn't that great but Something New did a great job and everyone had a great time! They even had some uplighting with our names on the walls and the floors.

Something New Entertainment did a wonderful job at our wedding reception. Anna-Jeannine and Justin completely understood our vision and really got into the theme of our day. They met with us months in advance to understand what we were looking for, answered every e-mail and phone call promptly, met with us a month before the wedding to go over details and had great suggestions for ways to make our wedding run smoothly. The music they played at the reception was great! They really listened to what we liked and disliked in order to develop a play list that kept the dance floor packed all night. They really kept the party flowing and dealt with last minute changes I had to throw at them very well. They really went above and beyond for our wedding! They brought the bridal party drinks and snacks while we waited to make our entrance. Anna-Jeannine even came out to my car and helped me fix the headpiece I was wearing to the reception. Something New Entertainment really made our reception something special

We had such a great time working with Katelyn and Jordan on their "Hallo-wedding!" From the very beginning, Katelyn and Jordan made it clear to us that they were looking for a "family-friendly" affair, rather than the more traditional and more formal approach, and we were happy to accommodate. In addition to the more traditional activities, we also included a costume contest, danced the "Time Warp" and more!

Katelyn and Jordan also had some requests that might be considered "unusual" for a wedding, but were so perfect for their theme. We are always sure to have those special songs so that our brides and grooms can enjoy the music that best reflects their theme and who they are as people. We also dress appropriately for your party -- which doesn't always mean standard tuxedos if that's not what you request. In this case, Katelyn and Jordan asked us to dress for the party.

Dressed as Rainbow Brite, we all had a good laugh when I played "Rainbow Connection" from their must play list.

Guys, it was so rewarding to be part of your special day!

Something New Entertainment was one of the best decisions we made about our wedding. Right from the start, Anna and Justin demonstrated a very accomodating, helpful, and genuine attitude of service.

We were very selective when finding our DJ because we had been told so many times that this vendor is the most important one to create a memorable and exciting event for our guests - also we just wanted to feel like we could relax and turn it over to someone else without worries.

We were also concerned because we had a very important guest that was trying to make it to our wedding from serving in Iraq - and therefore our date had to be "flexible". I could tell that SNE places their clients in top priority because I felt completely understood; they may as well have been members of my family who felt the very same way we did: hopeful and nervous.

Before our wedding reception, SNE was very quick to provide answers to our questions and requests. I had very many conversations via email and even long phone conversations with Anna - every one shaved off a little bit more stress than the last and convinced me that we had made a good decision by hiring this company. Every request that I made that I thought was strange was received with welcome and fervor - and executed just as well when it came time.

Our guests had a great time and so many of them told us that it was the best wedding they had ever been to! I know it was because Anna and Dave were enthusiastic and working hard to ensure that the dance floor was the place to be and that our celebration was one to remember.

I appreciate Anna and Dave so much for the part they played in our wedding. Anyone looking for a DJ for their event would be wise to choose this one.

Working with Emily (and Aaron, too!) was such a wonderful experience for us! They are both such positive people with contagious smiles, and their families and friends clearly caught the smiling fever, too, because we had quite a lively bunch out on the dance floor that evening, too!

One of the highlights of the evening for me was at the very end of the evening when the couple released a little candle-powered mini paper hot air balloon into the sky. Aaron had proposed to Emily after a hot air balloon ride, so, for them, it was more appropriate than rice, bubbles, or releasing of doves could ever be. Just beautiful! We played "Forever" by Chris Brown, and it seemed like just a perfect moment in time.

Aaron and Emily, we are so fortunate to be able to work with people who are so joyful as yourselves and so fortunate to be able to share your joy with you!
