Melbourne Wedding DJ Hire Venue
Professional Melbourne Wedding Entertainment
Our Wedding DJs Melbourne & Wedding MCs Melbourne
We have been providing our very experienced & very professional Melbourne Wedding DJs,
Wedding MCs & highest quality mobile disco systems all over Victoria since 1988.
We've provided our Melbourne Wedding DJs/MCs & Melbourne mobile disco systems
at over 2,500 Melbourne Wedding Receptions all over Melbourne & suburbs
as well as into the Yarra Valley, all down the Mornington Peninsula, and in fact all over Victoria.
HAVING A "FACE TO FACE" MEETING
BEFORE THEY DECIDE whether or not they wish to book our services for their
Wedding Reception, prospective customers are MORE THAN WELCOME to come to our
main Admin Office for a "no obligation" meeting with our Managing Director so that they can
get LOTS of details about our services & ask ANY questions AT ALL, about our Wedding
DJs Melbourne OR our sound systems, OR our lighting, OR our music request lists etc etc.
OUR MUSIC REQUEST BOOKS & LISTS
AT THAT MEETING they can also inspect our standard 95+ page Music Request Book
which contains all the official end-of year charts from 1990 up to 2012, plus a list
of the biggest songs of 2014 so far (which we update every week).
It also contains the current week's Top 100 for those who want some very new music.
Potential customers can also look thru our 4 page list of over 250 great Wedding Reception
"background" songs to be played at low volume during the serving and consumption of the
Entree & the Main Course and subsequent clearing of plates, cutlery etc. Over the years,
many Wedding couples have told us the "background music" is actually MUCH harder to
choose than the "dancey" stuff, so we created this 4 page "background music" list
to make that task a LOT easier.
Our main 100 page Request Book also contains the current week's Top 100 (as mentioned
above), plus the current week's Dance, R&B & Club charts for customers wanting a bit
of very up to date music at their Wedding Reception (which we find that MOST of our
Wedding couples do - no matter whether they are in their 20's, 30's, 0r 40's).
Then it also contains a list of 160 "retro" songs which are widely regarded as the "all-time
party classics". They are mainly from the 70's & 80's but there are a few 50's & 60's tracks
as well. It would take almost 10 hours to play all of these 160 songs, so in most cases
that should be more than enough to choose from.
BUT for anyone wanting a LOT more choice of 60's, 70's and 80's hits, THEN we also have
an extra 70 page request book containing the 120 biggest songs of EACH YEAR in order
of popularity for the 35 individual years 1955 to 1989 (or just tell us how far you want the info
to go back) - so each year takes up 2 pages with the biggest hit songs of that year
numbered in order of popularity from 1 to 120.
NOT ONE other Melbourne Wedding Reception Venue Mobile DJ Hire company has
ANYTHING LIKE this HUGE 150+ pages of music info available. The biggest request list
we know of ANY other company providing is LESS THAN 20 PAGES- so CLEARLY you get
A LOT LESS MUSIC to choose from with EVERY other Melbourne DJ Hire company.
WHAT ELSE DO WE PROVIDE TO ASSIST YOU?
After your deposit arrives we send out our “Wedding Reception Procedures/Order
Of Events & Other General Advice” document, which consists of 2 FULL A4 pages
of info, comprising 30 separate points/details on what happens at a Wedding
Reception - what choices you have, who the usual speakers are (and in what order),
what an MC’s duties are, what all the events are that happen during a Reception,
and who has to do what and when, plus HEAPS more detail that LOTS of our customers
have told us was SO helpful to them.
We also send out copies of 15 “Running Sheets” from previous customers Wedding Receptions
to help you prepare your own “Running Sheet”.
EVERY COUPLE who books our disco services for their Wedding Reception DJ
a week or so before their function IF THEY WISH TO – on the other hand,
many customers simply prefer to go over all final details with a comprehensive discussion over the phone –
Mostly these discussions are about all the small but very important details such as:
PROFESSIONAL WEDDING MCS - MASTER OF CEREMONIES (which is included at no charge)
EVERY ONE of our very experienced, professional Wedding Reception DJs is very familiar
with all of the various events that need to take place, as well as what order those events normally go in.
are more than happy to provide that advice on the spot.
There are several Melbourne Wedding DJ companies who charge EXTRA for their mobile Wedding DJs to MC !
So if you DON'T want/need their mobile DJ to MC and so you DON'T pay ANY extra
Because we do SO MANY Wedding Receptions in & around Melbourne, we really have come to know LOTS about them,
so you truly can rely on us for really good, really helpful advice.
whereas we do over 150 Wedding Receptions a year!!
Give us a call and let's have a totally "no obligation" general chat about your
Melbourne Wedding Reception DJ requirements
and all the various events that go on and who does what & when etc -
at more than 2,500 Wedding Receptions all over Melbourne
from outer suburban venues like "Silver Birches" & "Werribee Mansion" to the South West of Melbourne,
up to "Witchmount", "Windmill Gardens", "Ultima" & "Overnewton Castle" to the North & North West, plus to the North East "Potters Receptions" in Warrandyte, "Inglewood" in Kangaroo Ground
& further out into the Yarra Valley many wineries such as
"DeBortolis", "Immerse", "Chateau Yering", "Fergussons", "Train Track",
"Rustic Charm At Wild Cattle Creek"
& so many more.
Then down to the South East, "Summerfield House" at Bittern, "Stillwater At Crittendens" in Dromana,
across to the RACV's "Cape Schanck Resort" on the Westernport Bay coast & right down South to the
"Rosebud Golf & Country Club" & the "Portsea Hotel".
That should show you that we are happy to go ANYWHERE!
In fact even FURTHER out into rural Victoria we have also been to
Daylesford (many times), Phillip Island (several times), Shepparton (a few times),
Port Fairy, Sale, Beechworth, Echuca/Moama, the "Crowne Plaza" at Torquay and MANY more rural towns.
Then of course there are the more "normal" suburban type venues, some of which are listed below.
Here's about 100 of the most well-known Wedding Reception venues that we have performed
at in and around the so-called "Greater Melbourne Area" three or more times over the past 3 or 4 years.
In our "Photo Gallery" are photos taken at 9 or 10 of these Wedding Reception VenuesActually for quite a few of these venues we are in their recommended Melbourne Wedding DJ company lists.
There are also at least 300 OTHER suburban Wedding Reception venues where we have provided our Wedding DJ service & mobile disco hire only once or twice,
but we can't possibly list them all!
Then of course there are MANY couples who have their Wedding Reception DJ hire
in pub function rooms, RSL Club function rooms (and Tabaret type venues),
or even sporting clubrooms, Community Centres, School Halls, Church Halls and more.
We have also performed at quite a few Wedding Receptions in private homes in marquees etc.
EXTRA WEDDING SERVICES
WE CAN ALSO PROVIDE OUR WEDDING DJS MELBOURNE & A SECOND SOUND SYSTEM
FOR YOUR OUTDOOR CEREMONY MUSIC, & THEN FOR OUR WEDDING DJ MC
TO PLAY MUSIC ON OUTSIDE RIGHT THRU YOUR “PRE-DINNER DRINKS” PERIOD.
With many couples having their ceremony “on-site” these days in the gardens/grounds
at their Reception Venue, we are now being asked quite often to have our DJ arrive more
than 2 hours before the actual Reception starts INSIDE the venue, so that he can play the
songs the Bride & Groom have chosen for the various events during their ceremony,
as well as to play during the signing of the Registry. Then once the Ceremony is finished
(most take about 30 minutes), our DJ can THEN play “cruisey” music outside during your
1 or 1.5 hour (it varies from venue to venue) “pre-dinner drinks” period from immediately after the
Ceremony right up until the guests are asked to make their way into the main Reception Room
and find their seats. So in addition to our main disco system which he would have already set up
inside the Reception Venue BEFORE the Ceremony, our DJ will then also bring a second smaller system
incorporating all the extra equipment shown below:
In the photo above, we have to the left a crate of leads & power-boards (plus a microphone & lead) sitting on top of the second
amplifier, then to the right of the leads crate we have a roadcase containing a two drawer dual CD player & a 4 channel DJ sound mixer
with 2 microphone inputs. Then we have the second pair of speakers, with each TIMBER speaker cabinet containing a compression
driven horn & a 12 inch bass speaker. To the right of the speakers is a collapsible table we set the system up on (which you can see
fully set up further down).
NOTE: Our “Ceremony System” amplifier & speakers above cost over $3,000, PLUS those CD players & the DJ sound mixer are over
$2,500 worth, so all up this "Ceremony System" has more than $5,500 worth of disco gear, which is up to $3,000 more than the TOTAL
amount spent on their MAIN disco system by so MANY other DJ companies who are only supplying $800-1,000 laptops, with $800 plastic
speakers & 2 cheap disco lights.
NOTE: Our crate of leads includes a 20 metre extension lead in case the power source is a fair distance from where you want our system set up, plus we can bring extra leads if needed.
Now here’s how this “Ceremony System” looks once it’s all set up. To the top right of the photo you can see the stem of a microphone
stand, plus the bottom half of a microphone, with the lead hanging down, so YES, this second system does come with a microphone
on a lead, and BOTH the microphone itself and the microphone stand are INCLUDED in the price. Once we set up the table for the CD
players and sound mixer to sit on, we then wrap a black cloth around it to keep it all neat by hiding all the leads as well as the amplifier,
which is positioned under the table on top of the plastic crate the leads came in. In this photo you can also see a cordless microphone
sitting on top of the roadcase containing the CD players and sound mixer, while on top of the right-hand speaker is the cordless
microphone’s transmitter. This cordless microphone & transmitter is an optional extra, since most celebrants already have their own
cordless lapel microphone linked to their own small portable PA system, but just in case they don’t bring their own, we can add a
cordless microphone into our second system for an extra $30.
Our standard system hire fee for this second disco system is $120, then there is a further $40 per half hour which goes to our DJ for
whatever extra time you require his services. So if your Ceremony is to start 2 hours before the start of the actual Reception inside the
venue, then your total extra cost would be $280 including both the system hire ($120) and the 2 hours DJ time ($160). Or if your
Ceremony is only starting 1.5 hours before the start of the actual Reception inside the venue, then your total cost would be $240.
Here’s a close-up shot below of the DJ Sound Mixer (which has 4 sound source inputs, plus 2 x microphone inputs) and the Dual CD
If you do book this second system for your Ceremony, our DJ will get there about 1 hour & 45 minutes before the start time for your
Ceremony, so that he has an hour and 15 minutes to set up the main disco system inside the venue, then 20 minutes to set up the
second system for the Ceremony, then the final 10 minutes to change into his suit etc.
All that set up time (and the time taken to pack up after the Reception) IS NOT CHARGED FOR.
All set-up and dismantling time is already INCLUDED in our price quote.
After the DJ finishes playing music during the “pre-dinner drinks” period, he immediately goes inside the Reception room to where our
main disco system is already set up, and as the guests start to come in and find their tables he starts playing at a low volume a pre-
prepared CD of 4 or 5 of the “background songs” you have chosen, THEN he goes back outside to dismantle the outdoor system and
load it back into the van. This usually takes only 10 to 12 minutes, so that he is back in position behind the main disco system WELL
BEFORE the time you and your Bridal Party are scheduled to make your entrance.
Since we first started this extra service just over 12 months ago, our Ceremony packages have now become very popular.
We have done them at the Royal Botanic Gardens, at several wineries, on the beach at StKilda outside the “West Beach Bathers Pavilion”,
and at quite a few suburban Reception venues with outdoor Ceremony areas in their gardens, so we have now put together 2 more systems,
meaning we now have 3 Ceremony systems available to cope with the increased demand.
Here are 2 photos of how these 2 new Ceremony Systems look:
