Why should we choose you?

Sunshine DJ's is honored to have been chosen to entertain over a thousand bridal couples and their guests over the last 20 years. Almost all of our business comes from referrals from those happy couples. We’ve learned that couples want a professional to plan and deliver for them a fun and stress-free reception that’s a reflection of their personality and tastes! We promise to do everything in our power to make your day everything you’ve dreamed of – and more! 

If we don’t already have a selection, we’ll be happy to get it! We also welcome individual requests and/or you can supply your favorites.

How professional are your DJ's?

Sunshine DJ's adhere to a strict professional code of conduct. We’ve heard horror stories of DJ's not demonstrating professional behavior or trying to upstage the bridal party. Your event is about YOU, and the fun and entertainment of your guests. Our DJ's are coached to treat each and every guest with utmost respect, to remember that the bridal party is the star of the show, and that we are merely facilitators in giving your group the time of their lives!

Their knowledge of music is what really sets them apart. They know how to mix your selections to get everyone up and having fun!

Do you interact with the guests?

We will be as interactive as you like! We’re there to enthusiastically introduce the bridal party and announce those special moments such as the bouquet toss, cake cutting, and the first dance. Then, if you really want to shake it up, our DJ's can get your guests up and moving by instructing them in everything from line dances to the Macarena.

Can we request a particular DJ?

Sunshine DJ's has a variety of talented DJ's available for your event. Take a look at our DJ's gallery and give us a call. We look forward to working with you to recommend the appropriate entertainer for your event.

What happens if our DJ gets sick or the equipment breaks down?

No worries! We always have a Plan B! We have a DJ on-call at all times. By the way, in the 20 years we’ve been doing this, we’ve only had to call on a back up once. We pre-test your equipment prior to your event, to insure everything is in top working condition. In the unlikely event something should go wrong, we have backup systems available. So sit back, relax; we’ve got it covered!

What do I need to do to book a DJ?

Give us a call or reserve through this website. We make it easy to determine if we have a DJ available – just click through to our calendar.

What do you need from us, and by when?

At the time of reservation, you’ll be required to place a $100 deposit to hold the date. The balance is due the evening of the event. (Advance payment necessary if paying by credit card.)

What’s covered in your fee and are there any hidden charges?

Our fee includes pre-event consultation and planning time, set-up, entertainment hours, teardown, and travel. It’s all included. In rare instances, your venue may require payment for loading. If so, that expense is passed on to you.

How do we make music choices?

We offer the ability for you to view our music library and make your selections directly through our website. Check out our Top 200 list! If you’re not comfortable with the Internet, we’re happy to take those requests via fax or email. If we don’t already have a selection, we’ll be happy to get it! We also welcome individual requests and/or you can supply your favorites.

You will have up until 7 days before your event to plan your music. This gives your DJ the necessary time to prepare your music and the flow for your event.

Logistically, what should we expect of our DJ's at our event?

Your DJ's will arrive one hour prior to your event to set up. They will be appropriately attired, and will conduct themselves in the most professional manner. Your DJ's may ask to be introduced to the key participants in your bridal party,

On the rare chance that a music request seems inappropriate for the event, or questionable in light of your previous requests for “don’t plays” your DJ's may seek your approval first.

Your DJ's will be excited to help make your event fantastic! So relax and enjoy your guests. Celebrate, and leave the rest to us!

Back to the top

What do you need from us the day of the event?

We ask that in advance, you inform your venue that your DJ's will be arriving 1 hour before the event. We require a minimum of one 6-foot table near the dance floor, with close access to electrical service.

Other than that, the only thing we require is that you thoroughly enjoy your day!

What’s the proper etiquette? Should we tip our DJ's? Feed our DJ's?

Your DJ's wants to exceed your expectations! As with any service business, tips are a discretionary way to say they’ve done just that. Any tip is greatly appreciated. [Note that tips should be paid in cash directly to your DJ's at your event.

The choice of whether to feed your DJ's is up to you. Given the long period of time your DJ's will be at your event, notifying them in advance if they will not be offered dinner is appreciated. This gives them an opportunity to make other arrangements.
