One Night Entertainment is composed of a team of DJs who are all very talented. However some of our clients have been referred to a DJ, or they’ve read reviews, or they’ve seen a DJ in action. Which gives them peace of mind and a connection to the DJ. Working directly with them fron day one ensures the success of your event.

who will be your DJ?

We schedule our DJs no later than 30 days before the event. Pairing a DJ with a client boils down to a couple of factors. The event’s needs, the client’s personality and style, the degree of difficulty, the package, etc. We’ll factor all of that in to make sure the DJ is qualified for the event.

What is a Reservation Premium?

We want you to love your DJ. So here’s the chance to work with the DJ of your choice. We allow all of our clients to reserve the DJ of their liking personally. The Reservation Premium solidifies a particular entertainer for your event. So no matter what comes up, he’s locked in. For him that means no vacations, or the opportunity to take on another event. You have his undivided attention for your celebration.

This is totally optional as our entire line up is amazing. But because clients may have read a review, seen a DJ perform in person, or get a referral from a friend; they are entitled to their preference and we want to honor that the best way we know how.

If reserving someone personally is out of your budget…no big deal. We’ll keep your request in mind as we schedule our team. We schedule DJs 30 days before an event. Around the same time we meet for your Pre-Event Consultation. Once we know more about your style and what the event requires, we’ll plan our calendars accordingly.
