Our DJ Services Summary


We are here to take the stress out of planning your event. We’ll work with you to figure out the right music to play for your event. If you’ve got a specific song you want to be played, we’ll make sure it’s played when you want. 

But the music is just one part of what we do for you.  Our services include our support for you really every part of your event.  We are going to coordinate with your venue, your catering, your photographer & videographer, your event planner - really ALL of your "key" wedding pros to ensure the only thing you need to worry about is showing up and having an amazing night!

We will walk with you through every step of your planning.  Some of our couples want it simple.... we had one client tell us she wanted us to "show up, shut up, and play music!"  That was perfectly fine - we can do that!  Other clients want much more - help with timing, order of events, emceeing, announcements and music suggestions and much much more!  We can do that too.

We provide you access to your own online planning center where you have as much control over your day as you want. Our focus is to make sure you have the kind of event where nearly EVERYONE dances, not just a "select few"!

Pricing

We keep our pricing SIMPLE.

First, we do not have "packages".  So many other DJ's have various packages with progressively better and better quality equipment and services based on how much you spend.  That is WRONG!

We would never "penalize" a couple based on their budget.  It doesn't matter if you hire us for 4 hours or 40 hours - you will get the same high quality light show for your dance floor, a professional grade sound system, all wireless microphones and a professional DJ who is not only your "voice" for the day, but will also be your coordinator for the reception making sure everything goes just like you planned!

These days there are so many DJ's out there "up-charging" or "up-selling" for literally everything!  They'll TELL you that you need to spend more on "extra" things like: Extra lights, Microphones, Speakers, Announcements, and your Ceremony just to name a few...... 
That's insane a
nd NOT the way we operate.  

Our pricing is simply based on the amount of total time you need.

​​​​​For example, if your ceremony and reception are all in the same location we recommend having us be ready to start 30 minutes prior to your ceremony (that's when your guests arrive) through the end of the night.  That way there is nice prelude music playing before the ceremony.

This eliminates so much stress from your day because each "moment" will naturally flow into the next.  For example, ceremony flows into social and cocktail time which flows into dinner and right into the dance at YOUR PACE!  So you'll never feel "rushed" for time!

If you just need us for the reception, we recommend having us be ready to start when your GUESTS will begin to arrive.  That way there is nice social / cocktail music playing when they walk in and it removes the stress of trying to time your arrival with our start time!

So to sum it all up, what do you get when you hire UE?

Full access to a dedicated on line planner filled with tools such
as event forms, requests, time lines and even payment options.

A FULL light show for your dance floor

All kinds of optional lighting and effects too

All wireless microphones (including 2 lapel & 2 hand held mics)

Professional grade speakers

A DJ/Emcee who is focused on making your event as amazing and stress free as possible!

PLUS.....

A dedicated staff of wedding professionals who are here to answer ALL of your questions whenever you have them.  We are open M-F from 9-6pm as well as Saturdays.  We will walk with you every step of the way.  We understand planning your even can be OVERWHELMING, it can even be kinda scary - and that can take the "fun" out of planning.  We are here to help!
