Not Your Typical DJs...
Your vision for your party is important when considering the music and the songs that are played will have an incredible impact on your guests' overall perception of the party. Your event's success depends on hiring exceptional vendors who understand your specific goals and can bring them to life. You'll have a personalized and specific, one of a kind, music format for your vibe, theme or vision. No one size fits all, "filler music" or cookie-cutter music playlists here... you deserve better for your event. You deserve it and you get it... more than just going through the motions.
When prospective clients talk with several other DJs they quickly realize how our expertise, professionalism, eye for detail and commitment is outside the norm for the industry. Each of the DJs in the Collective have literally thousands of hours playing all genres of music at many different types of events.
You want a top, nationally recognized DJ who is routinely sought out by other music lovers and socialites looking for a special music format to create a phenomenal impression and make their event buzz with a stellar soundtrack. Having played parties for serious audiophiles as well as celebrity events for high profile clients like blockbuster film actors, Hollywood producers, top recording artists, sports stars and US Governors the theme is constant. We are hired because we are unlike the other guys and gals and know how to play great music that will complement your party. We've all played many thousands of hours over the years compared to your average mobile DJ who's probably only logged a few hundred hours behind the decks.
