Wedding reception DJ

This week we are featuring one of our Pink List Member DJ’s! We know that one of the main ingredients for a wedding to be GREAT versus good, is the music!

When choosing your music and DJ entertainment, be sure to follow a few key points such as, is their equipment up to date, are they still using cassette tapes?
