On January 1st, 2016 we hired Jon with Music Source to be our DJ at our wedding on June 18, 2016. Jon sold us the minute we walked in the door. He had a clean office and a great presentation. Two months after (give or take) we signed our contract we had something come up where we need to move the wedding date up to April and he was extremely understanding and worked with us on the date change. (VERY EASY TO WORK WITH!)
On April 23, 2016 (our new wedding date) Jon was there at the time he said he would be and had everything set up and ready to go before for both the ceremony and reception . When everything began his assistant was there to help us on timing for walking down the isle. IT WAS SO ORGANIZED! He played all the music so perfectly, making everything seem like it was a true fairytale!
Jon played everything we asked, when we asked for it, and it was the most perfect wedding hugely because of his service! If you are looking for a DJ that does it all and does it with all of his heart you need to hire Jon with Music Source Professional Disc Jockey Service. He is worth every penny.
Thank you Jon!
HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!! With Jon you get the whole package and a very professional one at that! Not only was he great as a DJ and Mcee but did a terrific job with uplighting our entire reception venue! Not to mention all of the help he gave us in selecting some unique song choices. Definitely someone you feel comfortable with giving such an important job to!

Additional Booking Notes
EXTRA ADDITIONAL SERVICES & EQUIPMENT AVAILABLE
LIGHTING & EFFECTS:
UPLIGHTING ~ Add a splash of color to your event with L.E.D. uplighting. Light up a wall, column, table, you name it. Use a few or use a lot to transform your room and create the atmosphere and the emotions that set the tone.
Thanks to the latest technology available in 'quad' L.E.D. lighting, they use very little power, do not get hot so they are safe for children to be around, yet are powerful enough for high ceilings and bright rooms. You can choose from thousands of colors to match your decor since our lights are not tri-color that are just red-green-blue, but quad color that also includes white or amber. A true white that is also great to get the pastel colors or amber that is useful for the yellow and orange tones. Static colors run $35 per light.
GOBO MONOGRAM LIGHT ~ Your name, initials or company logo, on the dance floor, wall or ceiling. Your choice of lettering style but must be selected a minimum of two weeks in advance. Single color is $175 and you get to keep the metal gobo disc.
SPOT LIGHT ~ Great a for dramatic theatrical entrance when used as a follow-spot. Choose from one of eight colors to light your way as you are introduced into the room. Also great to spotlight the 'First Dance' or be used during toasting or any other events that need the extra focus that only a spot light can provide. $50.
BUBBLES ~ Enjoy a flowing cascade of bubbles over the dance floor during slow dances (does 'not' make the dance floor slick) for just $25.
AUDIO & VIDEO:
REMOTE POWERED SPEAKERS WITH WIRELESS RECEIVERS ~ Ideal for a large room for even sound through out, so the people in front are not getting blasted while the people in back still can't hear. Also ideal for second rooms, patios, and other challenging venues. Just $125 more and placed on fully skirted tripods.
EXTRA SUBWOOFERS ~ What's better than 2 subwoofers? FOUR!!!! Go from 2,000 watts of subwoofer thump to 4,000 watt for an extra $125. HIGHLY recommended for large rooms with high ceilings, high school & college dances and outdoor events.

While the DJ can preprogram the music he cannot preprogram the response that he's going to get. Therefore set lists are ALWAYS made up at the event on the fly. We pull from the requests of the guests and the client both and fill in when and where needed, grouping songs together by genre. The only playlists I use are for background music prior to dancing. Those lists are either premade and selected by the client or we make a custom playlist for the client.
