If you have something in mind, we can arrange a Special Occasion Song to immortalize your event or wedding. Having a special theme song or love song is a timeless way to commemorate your event that no one else has.

The Champagne Dress Artist is a unique and beautiful way to share drinks with your guests at your next party. The Champagne Dress is on wheels, so the artist can stroll around your party making sure none of the guests are left empty-handed.

A DJ will bring life to your ceremony, cocktail reception or dinner / dance. We can provide a sound system and wireless microphone for toasts/speeches during reception as well.

Most people overestimate the ease of playing music that keeps a crowd on the dance floor. There may be people from ages 8 to 80 on the dance floor at any one time; an experienced DJ will understand that everyone is passionate about “their style” of music and know how to tap into that passion and present it in a manner that everyone on the dance floor can get excited about together.

Lighting can add ambiance to any event. From café style to gobos - we have a variety of options to choose from. Ask us about lighting and A/V options.
