Event and Party Disc Jockeys

Other Important OCCASIONS

There are an infinite reasons to have a party.  There are certain elements that make all parties special.  OCCASIONS Disc Jockeys has the experience to make your party a success.  We play continuous music throughout the night.  Our music catalog encompasses styles from the 1930's to today's Top 40, including Country, Classic Rock, Oldies, Swing, Alternative, Christian, and Disco.  You can see some of our fast dance songs, some of our slow songs, and some of our current hits we have available for every job.  You can see that in addition to the most popular and current hits, we have a wide selection of timeless songs that people still like to hear.  We pride ourselves in customizing each job and making it a great time for all.  We will not act or talk inappropriately.  Your guests will remember a great time.  We take requests before the event and throughout the night.  Once the contracted times are over, there is no penalty charge if we go into overtime - it's at the rate originally quoted to you.  Our price is for music and entertainment.  We set up and tear down on our time, not yours.

During the party, we follow any schedule you give us.  If there are any announcements to be made, we will handle them.  We also have a wireless microphone available.  Throughout the night we make the guests feel welcomed and motivated to have a great time.  We can include a small light show in all of our party packages at no additional charge.  A good light show helps bring people out to the dance floor.  It isn't an optional extra that costs more money.  The personality of your DJ also helps stimulate the crowd.  Whether you want a high-energy, outrageous DJ, one who just plays the music, or somewhere in between, our DJ's are never obnoxious or rude to your guests.

Most of our work is wedding receptions.  Next is school dances.   These are the two extremes -- one is very formal with all different ages and backgrounds, and the other is very high energy with mostly current dance music.   OCCASIONS will easily make any party along that spectrum a success.  At all events, we interact with the guests to motivate them to have a good time.  The guests will have a great time; those leading the night will have an easy time.  We dress appropriately in attire suitable for the event.

OCCASIONS Disc Jockeys will always customize your event and work with you to make it a success.  If you have any other questions, feel free to call contact us.  Thank you for considering OCCASIONS.

ANNIVERSARIES

OCCASIONS Disc Jockeys has an extensive collection of popular songs that go back to the 1930's.  We remember that as time goes by, people like to get together to listen to good music and talk, not just dance.  While the guests are arriving and through any meal, we have a wide assortment of vocalists and big band favorites including: Tommy Dorsey, Chuck Berry, Dean Martin, Bing Crosby, Benny Goodman, Glenn Miller, Billie Holiday, Louis Prima, Elvis Presley, Bobby Darin, Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Louie Armstrong, and others.  If possible, we try to find out what the couple had chosen for their first dance at their wedding or at least a few songs that are meaningful to them.  They can relive their wedding day down to sharing the first dance together and even cutting the anniversary cake.  Through the whole evening, we keep in mind your guests and play appropriate music at a reasonable volume.

CLASS REUNIONS

OCCASIONS Disc Jockeys offers a great package for class reunions.  We keep our prices low while offering all the extras that make your night special.  We can easily feature music from your years in high school.  Your d.j. will follow your schedule and keep the evening flowing smoothly.  During the dance we make sure that everyone enjoys him/herself.  Our music catalog is current and expansive.  If you would like, we would run contests like, "Who moved the farthest?", "Who has the most children?", to trivia questions about your years in high school (provided by the hosts), to physical contests like the limbo or "dance like you did in high school", etc.  We entertain at a lot of class reunions and know how important it is to make the guests feel welcome and entertained.  We understand that sometimes, when a group has not seen each other in several years, they might just want to sit and talk.  We won't force your group to get up and dance if you don't want us to.  Here are some general ideas for your class reunion:
Require your classmates to pay in advance.  That is very important.  The caterer will still charge you whether the people actually show up or not.  Contact classmates beforehand to find out if they work for a company that would donate prizes to the reunion committee.  Since you can have prizes that range from door prizes to game to grand prizes, specify that the gift does not have to be expensive.  OCCASIONS Disc Jockeys makes $25 gift certificates available to class reunions that we work.  A free contest prize could be free entry in any 50/50 raffle or drawing.  You should provide name tags for everyone.  Guests of the alumni should be a different color or as a really nice touch, you could include each alumnus' senior picture on their own name tag.  Prepare a booklet including each alumnus' address, email address, phone number, marriage status, job, activities, etc.  Be sure to tell everyone when asking for this information that you will be distributing it to the class.  In the back of the booklet, be sure to thank those individuals and companies that donated time, money, or gifts to make the night a success.

CLUBS, ORGANIZATIONS, BARS, ETC.

OCCASIONS Disc Jockeys is available for parties at clubs or organizations.  Depending on availability, we can fill in at bars, however, we do not regularly perform at bars. Clubs are good places to have parties.  Great music makes these parties even better.  So why not hire OCCASIONS Disc Jockeys for your next one.  We go into every job prepared to read the crowd, take requests, and have a great time.  We offer discounted prices on parties that take place Sunday through Thursday night.  A three hour party on a week day can be very affordable.

POOL PARTIES

The summer weather is perfect for pool parties.  Great music makes these parties even better.  Our wide selection of music will create the perfect atmosphere.  Our song list will only include the music that parents and children can both enjoy.  We can even play just beach music.  We offer a very attractive discount for pool parties that are not on Saturdays.  Parents love our pool parties because we interact with the youngest children and everyone can get involved whether with the Limbo, "Simon Says", or a dance contest.  Our light show is available for "moonlight swims" at no additional cost.
One regular client told us that his patrons look forward to the pool parties and they help pick up business during the slow times of the summer.  Typically, during July and during the week, people are away on vacation.  This would be a perfect time to bring in a DJ.  If you have a slow day of the week or time of the summer, making a party can easily bring in the extra income to pay for the DJ.

PROMS / POST PROM PARTIES

OCCASIONS Disc Jockeys mainly does wedding receptions.  These are very formal affairs.  We can bring that same sophistication to your prom.  We wear formal attire and our music system does not show an ugly collection of wires and tape.  We have music that is appropriate for dinner and the current music we bring to all dances.  As with regular dances, our light show is included in the price.  If your school sponsors an after-prom party, we offer discounted rates if you hire us for any segment of that.  During the second party, we can do a lot of different things to fill the night.

SENIOR CENTERS AND RETIREMENT HOMES

OCCASIONS Disc Jockeys is making a very special offer for retirement homes, nursing homes, and senior centers.  We normally offer extra low weekday rates for parties for residents.  There are always new reasons to have a party.  Christmas, Valentine's Day, Summer, etc. are all good reasons to celebrate.  Any month you can honor all the birthdays that are coming up or recently past.  There doesn't even need to be a "reason" to bring in good music that your residents will enjoy. During the party, we follow any schedule you give us.  If there are any announcements to be made, we will handle them.   The personality of your DJ helps stimulate the crowd.   We can play the music and talk in between songs or we can lead some dances like "The Hokey Pokey", "The Chicken Dance", etc., it all depends on what you want. We have an expansive catalog of all types of music: oldies, country western, swing, big band, vocalists, 40"s, 50"s, 60"s, through today, etc.  We recognize that a party at a retirement home or senior center is not like a night at the dance clubs.  We keep the volume at a reasonable level.  Also, we won't be upset if people don't dance.  However, sometimes, the staff or visitors like to demonstrate dances like the "Electric Slide" or "Macarena".  Occasionally, a resident will show off a Jitterbug or a Fox-trot.  Whatever happens, the memories and the music always are a great pastime - and even therapy - for all in attendance.
If you are having an open house, we can provide background music for that.  We have also done "Senior Citizen Proms".  These are an opportunity for seniors and high school students to come together for a fun night of dancing.  Each generation can meet new friends and teach new dances.

Here are just a few of the hundreds of artists we have that always delight with their melodies & memories:
Frank SinatraCount BasieNat King ColeArtie ShawHal McIntyreBill Haley
Danny & The JuniorsChuck BerryMom's & Dad'sRay AnthonyMel TormeLes Paul
Tony BennettTommy DorseyPeggy LeeDean MartinJimmy DuranteDina Shore
Les BrownBenny GoodmanThe PlattersHarry JamesHenry ManciniIrving Berlin
Bing CosbyLouis ArmstrongAl MartinoBobby DarinFrankie YankovicAndy Williams
The CoastersJimmy DorseyEddy HowardLawrence WelkBobby HelmsElla Fitzgerald
Billie HolidayJohnny MathisLouis PrimaRosemary ClooneyThe BeatlesThe Andrews Sisters
Guy LombardoElvis PresleyPattie PaigeRoy RogersDuke EllingtonJo Stafford
Plus lots of other great artists and bands!
Our rates for homes and centers are also very affordable.  The cost for a Seniors' party at a Senior Center, Nursing Home, or Retirement Home on a Sunday through Thursday is a lot less than you would think.  We set our prices for these events at less than their worth as a community service.  We can even go lower if you have your own sound system we can plug into or if you hire us regularly.  Our rates are at a tremendous discount from our normal rates for a party.  We welcome any group participation during the party.  We are sensitive to the different needs of different groups and will discuss specific party guidelines with those in charge.  Although we are a disc jockey company, we do not expect residents to dance.  Listening to their favorite songs from days gone by is therapy itself.  Keeping that in mind, we do not play the music loud, just loud enough to enjoy the melodies.  Music is therapeutic and enjoyable.  Our selections will bring back fond memories for your residents.
We are available for any type of party, even if there is no reason for a party.  The residents always enjoy our performance.

TEEN LOCK-IN'S AND ALL-NIGHTERS

OCCASIONS Disc Jockeys offers special rates for long parties.  We have a vast collection of music that allows us to play favorites all night long without repeating songs (except those few that everybody wants to hear again).  We highly support activities for teens that give them positive alternatives.  We have been to many all-nighters where our music is one option for the attendies, along with basketball, swimming, ping-pong, volleyball, etc.
