Our companies can handle your Major Event Needs...

Wedding Services phantom Photobooths Services Mn Photography

  • By providing a written Agreement, which is signed and agreed upon by Our company and the client, we can book the date of your event and assure that no upcoming costs or hidden problems will arise. This makes us a great choice for your Waite Park DJ Service!
  • Our Central MN Wedding DJ company provides backup equipment and assures that a backup DJ will be available should an emergency or case of illness occur.
  • As one of the top St Cloud DJ Companies, we only use Industry Standard Professional Equipment. We do NOT use home stereo level equipment (unless requested), which can be unreliable and is not made for a high level of performance.
  • Our prefers to play what the audience wants, unless you do not want us to. We DO NOT have a set play list that we follow. We take requests and try to play them at the best and appropriate times. We do as much as we can to keep the party going. You may even want to request certain songs NOT be played. It’s your event and we are here to accommodate in any way we can. We tend to save any explicit music for the last hour or two to avoid offending the older and younger crowds.
  • Dressing according to your needs is important to us; we usually wear comfortable dress attire. We are always willing to wear Tuxes or Suit coats, but by special request only!
  • Music volume is acquired based on the age range of the crowd. Our company will play music at whatever level you like, keeping in mind your younger and older guests.
  • We meet with every client (unless it is not necessary) before an event takes place. We allow you to choose music that you would like and allow you to plan your entertainment throughout the night.
  • Your input and suggestions are always welcome. Any information about your friends and family can help us to choose the best mix of music for your guests. Also we allow you to choose as much music as you would like for your event.
  • Wedding Ceremony music has been changing over the last couple of years. Many people are choosing to have DJ’s versus live music for parts of or all of their Ceremony music. We can compose and mix custom tracks and are very willing to work hand in hand with singers or musicians.
  • Not many Reception Halls offer dinner music, that’s where we come in. We offer dinner/social hour music typically consisted of instrumentals.
  • Overtime isn’t a problem. A typical show is about four hours, if everyone is having a good time we are happy to run a little longer.
  • If you have a family member/friend who can really sing, and you would like them to do so, we can accommodate for that, but we do need to know this ahead of time so that we can plan accordingly.
  • We allow our clients to be interactive and to call the shots if they choose. We allow you to make your own announcements or we will handle all of the announcements for you. It is the clients choice. However, we do not believe that in order to have a good performance that we need to do a lot of talking. We do invite people to the dance floor when we feel it is necessary and are willing to get involved with dances.
  • It is a very nice gesture to offer a gratuity to your DJ. This is not included in the cost and is not expected. Offering a tip is completely at your discretion. IE: typical gratuities are around 5-15% of the total cost. But we do not require a fee for tips or any hidden charges at anytime.
  • Why choose us over a band? Bands are a great source of entertainment, but they can never have as wide of a repertoire as we do. No matter how good the band is, they will never sound as good as the original artist recordings. Also, we play non stop.
  • As an experienced Paynesville DJ service, we don't ever take any breaks unless they are required for announcing, accidents, power outages or the rare occasion of equipment overload or malfunction which makes us a great choice as your Paynesville Wedding DJ Service.

Some of our Excellent Reviews!

5 Star DJ ReviewsWe wanted to send a HUGE THANK YOU to MN Pro DJ, and owner Dave Ley who was our wedding reception DJ! The first thing that jumped out to us about Dave was the fact that his ultimate goal truly is customer satisfaction, and he will do whatever it takes to accommodate you on your special day. He was extremely friendly, professional. Also, he was very easy to reach at any hour and exceedingly supportive throughout the entire planning process, which ultimately paid off with an unforgettable reception dance that people are still complimenting us on! Dave gave his suggestive expertise in regards to his DJ'ing knowledge and craft along the way when we requested, but most importantly listened to us in regards to our vision of the big day and he delivered in a way that far surpassed our expectations! He had the dance floor filled throughout the night, with a mastered approach that kept everyone excited to move to the rhythm, and musical selection knowledge that kept the energy level on the dance floor high at all times. We would absolutely recommend MN Pro DJ and Dave Ley to anyone looking for an UNFORGETTABLE wedding night! Not only because of his flawless expertise, but also because of his genuine, down to Earth approach leading you to the big day that YOU envision!!

5 Star DJ ReviewsWow! What a great party! We recently attended a wedding in which Minnesota Pro DJ was providing awesome music. The bride and groom are both great dancers and the DJ played the music that made them “pop”! Clearly, he listened to the bride and groom's requests and provided music that made the night very special. I don’t think one song was played without anyone dancing! In fact, the music got everyone dancing! From the little nieces and nephews to grandma great and her new beau! I understand the bride and groom had a very unusual request with a very unique song and somehow, the DJ found it and was able to play it! I just don’t remember the last time I was at a reception that I had as much fun. Oh, what a night! New memories and good times!

5 Star DJ ReviewsWe couldn't have asked for a better DJ! Dave did a great job. He was easy going, very organized and entertaining. He did a great job interacting with our guests from the games we did all the way to the garter auction. With MN Pro DJ you get the total package!

5 Star DJ ReviewsMN Pro DJ (Ashley) was awesome. We had the time of our lives at our wedding thanks to you! I'd recommend them to anyone!

5 Star DJ ReviewsDave set up the sound system for our wedding ceremony and was our DJ for the reception. I'm very thankful that he took the time and had the patience to come out for the rehearsal the day before for the ceremony sound -- not that there were any problems, but just because it was comforting to know we were able to hook everything up properly.

Dave had the perfect attitude. He was very easy going, and he knew how to adapt to situations. My reception was indoor/outdoor, and the beginning of the dance was pretty much just kids dancing because all of the adults wanted to be outside. Dave switched the music appropriately so the kids could have fun on the dance floor. Then when the adults came in to dance he switched things up again. I was very pleased.

He also had to set up extra speakers for the reception which ran outside since I had people out in a tent. I was worried about if they'd be able to hear speeches, but I heard from guests out there that they could hear perfectly. Dave did a great job.

I would recommend MN Pro DJ to anyone. They have reasonable prices, great service, and the perfect attitude.

5 Star DJ ReviewsJust wanted to let you know what a great job you did with sound at the wedding on Saturday! People said the piano/flute combo came through clearly at the ceremony. I was also impressed that you didn't crank the music up too high at the dance. Even when I was the age of the bride and groom and friends, I couldn't stand music that was so loud that people couldn't talk without absolutely shouting. So it was the most pleasant wedding dance I have attended in a long time, including those of my two daughters!

Anyway, just wanted you to know that we all appreciated your services. My sister, the mother of the bride, give your card to the Bugbee Hive owners, and suggested they refer others to you, especially as you know the layout, and did such a great job setting up speakers outdoors.

5 Star DJ ReviewsDave was great, and played a soundtrack to our party that was fun and exciting for everybody. Excellent play list, had every song request. Recommended.

5 Star DJ ReviewsMy husband and I got married on December 4, 2010, and our DJ Zack Perlman was the highlight—in fact, one of the VERY BEST aspects—of our wedding! The most important thing to both my husband and I regarding our wedding was that the dance floor be packed throughout the entire evening. We made sure to cut the cake before the dancing began, and get all the toasts out of the way at the beginning of the night too just so that we wouldn’t have to stop the music for anything once it started. We told Zack to play a mix of music, and left the selection solely up to him. Wow, did he do a fabulous job! He managed to get every single last guest up out of their seat and onto the dance floor –and he then accomplished the true feat that I’m sure many DJ’s struggle with: with his ability to read the crowd and choose the perfect mix of songs, Zack kept our guests on the dance floor all night long! The energy was great, and our friends and family (who, by the way, all commented on how awesome our DJ was) danced until close to 2 a.m.! After the wedding, both my husband and I commented that our wedding would not nearly have been the same without Zack. He fulfilled our dream of maintaining a steady flow of good music, making sure our guests were having the time of their lives and dancing all night, and keeping the dance floor packed from the beginning of the evening through the end. Because of Zack, we had the wedding of our dreams. We are SO happy we chose Zack to be our DJ and would recommend him to absolutely anyone! Thank you!

My son was married last weekend at the Graves 601 Hotel in downtown Minneapolis. I am the mother of the groom.  One of the most important objectives for my son and his bride-to-be was that people dance non-stop throughout the evening.  We not only hired a band, but we also hired Zack Perlman to DJ during the time the band was on break so there would be constant dancing.
I was amazed at the result…people not only remained on the dance floor when the band stopped playing and Zack began to play, but more people rushed the dance floor to dance! Zack's choice of music was wonderful…he played music that all age groups liked. Long after the band stopped playing for the night, Zack continued to play and the dance floor remained packed until we finally called it a night. If I were to plan the wedding again, I'm not sure I would hire a band…but I would absolutely hire Zack Perlman!!!- Kerry & Scott Bader - 12-4-10

5 Star DJ ReviewsDave was too much fun and great to have as the DJ for our BIG day! People were on the dance floor past cleaning up the reception site! Dave was easy to talk to and super caring about what we wanted. We are above and beyond happy with Dave's work. Thank you soooo much Dave!!! - Juliann Kramer - 10-9-10

5 Star DJ ReviewsDave was FANTASTIC. We were planning our wedding from a distance, and he was great about e-mailing us and calling us when necessary. He knew exactly what to play, took requests, and kept everybody on their feet until the very end! If we ever have another event in the St. Cloud area, we'll definitely give him a call again! -Adam and Amanda Gorecki - 10-02-2010

5 Star DJ ReviewsWe wanted to say THANK YOU so much for being the DJ at our wedding! You did a wonderful job Crystal! We were very happy with everything you did! You were very easy to talk to and VERY helpful with helping with the small details you don't think of until it gets closer to the day! Thanks again for accommodating to our needs and our requests! We really enjoyed your song selection and it was great that you asked to fill out that survey (event planner) before the wedding in case we had any special songs to be played so you could make sure you had them! That was SOOO nice! Thanks again! You guys are GREAT!

5 Star DJ ReviewsThank you so much for making my daughters wedding reception at Ruttger's Bay Lake Lodge fun! You kept everyone out on the dance floor and that is what we were looking to do. You were easy to reach and great to work with. I will certainly recommend you to other couples!
- Mother of the Bride - 9-4-2010

5 Star DJ ReviewsMN Pro DJ was great! We received numerous compliments on the music that was played throughout the night! Dave was down-to-earth, friendly, and great at checking-in with us (the bride & groom) periodically throughout the night as well as greeting us at the door when we first arrived. And As the bride, my garter toss surprise for the groom turned out great! Our DJ service was everything we could have hoped for! Thank you!

Minneapolis Wedding

Since we offer many different services such as Slide Show creations, Light Shows and music ranging from the 30’s through today, we are able to compete with some of the largest companies in the state. Our St Cloud DJ company has the ability to mix music for special occasions such as Wedding Ceremonies or Parties. Our music selection consists of over 18,000 songs and continues to grow. Choosing to keep mostly popular and top rated songs in our library, we avoid wasting valuable storage space and overwhelming lists of music. We allow our clients the ability to plan their entire event ahead of time, including music selections and special activities. All of our DJ’s are experienced and energetic. We are proud to be your Central MN Dj Service! We also offer photo booths and photography.

Choosing Music for Your Event

Everyone has different tastes in music. many brides and grooms know what they like and want to hear. Which is great and any hints or ideas you can supply your DJ is very helpful to them and it will help you hear what you want. But many want to choose 100 to 200 songs that they like and want to hear. It isn't even feasible to play that many songs in 4-5 hours. And it is very rare for a bride or groom to know what a good mix of music is for the entire night. A good mix of genres and styles are important for the flow of an event. So it is great to pick some songs that are musts and you know you want, but then let the DJ do their job, making sure that correct songs get played at the right times.

When choosing songs for your event, make sure you clarify which artist you want to hear for certain songs. Take the song "The Way You LookMusic Disk Jockey Notes Tonight". Several artists have sang this song over the years and some aren't even the same song. If you want the Frank Sinatra version be sure to tell your DJ that. if you don't know, ask them or listen online to find the version you want.

Also choosing a bunch of songs by your favorite artist can be really trying for your guests. Some may not like your favorite artist at all or the artists style may be "country" and the bulk of your friends and family like rock. They may start to get very impatient and this is also very hard on your DJ and guests may get bored or upset and leave.

Do you want your DJ to take requests? Why wouldn't you? You want your guests to have fun and hear what they want don't you? A lot of DJ's will not take requests, so make sure if you want your DJ to, then hire one that is willing to do so. And if you don't want them to take requests, make sure you let them know. If there are certain songs you don't want played, let your DJ know that as well. You are the boss and the DJ should check with you before any controversial song ever gets played, so make sure your DJ allows you to be in charge of your event and you have the final say when it comes to music, your wants and your needs.
