Q How far in advance should we contract a disc jockey, is a deposit required, and can we meet with our dj?

CJ's recommends contracting a disc jockey no later than 8 to 12 months prior to your reception. It is not uncommon for Brides & Grooms to request a specific DJ 8 months to a year prior to their reception. We do require a $250.00 retainer and the balance must be paid 14 days prior to your reception. We prefer to meet both the Bride & Groom prior to the reception. When we have the ability to meet with them it tends to answer all of their questions and some of our very own.

Q What is the most common misconception brides tend to have regarding DJs & how do you get past them?

The most common misconception about DJs is they are all the same. They are in your face with crazy props (i.e. - YMCA outfits), they are on the dance floor most of the night, they don't follow the direction of the bride and groom (i.e. - must play and Do-Not-Play songs) & they are unprofessional. Getting past misconception is pretty easy. I have a one on one consultation with the couple and ask them a few simple questions to show I am truly interested in their reception and their ideas and concepts. Once they realize all DJs are not the same and that I truly care about the success of their reception they are generally relieved.

Q What prompted you to start CJs Disc Jockey Service and how long have you been in business?

From a very early age I was introduced to music and the art of entertainment by of all people, my mother. She owned a roller skating rink while I was growing up and I was fascinated with all the variables of music, from charting the top 40 songs each week, to which songs were requested more frequently, to which songs were losing popularity. In 1992 I began to DJ semi-private events by request, but I wasn't mature enough to dedicate myself to the commitment just yet. I officially launched CJs Disc Jockey Service in January of 1994, when I realized there was a market for a mature, young DJ who understood that being a DJ wasn't about being the entertainment, it was about being the entertainer who through music provided the entertainment to the party.

Q What type of music will you play at our reception & can the Bride & Groom make requests prior to the reception?

CJ's Disc Jockey Service will provide you with access to our fully interactive website that has a database of over 75,000 titles. Generally we can only play about 60 songs in a four hour period. However, a wide variety of music is played at every reception to satisfy guests of all ages. CJ's Disc Jockey Service understands that nobody knows your guests like you do. We ask every Bride & Groom to make a list of 10 to 15 songs they would like to hear at their reception. On that same note we will accept request from your guests, however we will never play anything that has inappropriate language, behavior, or that we feel is questionable.

Q Why do you think most brides hire a DJ for their wedding, and at times do it in conjunction with a band?

Great question. First, no DJ in the world can replace live entertainment! Can you imagine going to a concert to see the Black Eyed Peas feat. Lady Gaga and when you get to your seats at the venue you see a DJ playing the greatest hits collection. Wedding Entertainment is extremely personal. With that said, many couples hire a DJ to provide the entertainment at their reception because of flexibility, personality and comfort. I believe many couples hire a DJ as well as live entertainment for peace of mind. I don't know of 1 band in the Metro area that enjoys the formal obligations (wedding party introduction, toast, blessings, ethnic traditions, etc) of a reception.

CJ is the best choice for a wedding DJ. He cares about his clients and listens to their needs. He did an amazing job with lighting the space for our wedding, which added the perfect touch to the reception space. He did a great job of staying within the type of music we wanted, and kept the dance floor alive for the entire night. We had all of our guests dancing until the very last minute. I would recommend CJ to any of my friends or family- he and is wife are a great team, and they truly provide the best service!

Can't beat CJDJ's Experience!

5/ 5

Chris Johnson was our go to guy. I can’t call him a DJ, that would mean that he came played music and left. Chris was a crucial part of our day. First of all, you can’t beat Chris’s personality and passion for his career. It is evident that Chris loves what he does! Secondly, Chris just not just know music and how to make people not only get on the dance floor, but stay, Chris knows the wedding industry. He is a true professional and takes his role in any event very serious. Chris brought expertise, experience, and excitement to our journey to our wedding day and our wedding day start to finish. We knew we were going with Chris as our master of ceremonies. There was no deciding between a few DJs. For us, Chris was our go to. He micdd those that needed to be, he did our uplighting and kept the dance floor packed all night. We had been to a few weddings with Chris as the DJ and each and every time that man brought life to the event. It’s amazing. We cannot say enough about CJDJ’S professionalism, passion, excitement and pure joy. We highly recommend them! After our wedding, we had 2 friends getting married. Both said we aren’t interested in anyone else. Tell us how to get ahold of your dj. That’s pretty awesome!

Best DJ in St. Louis!

4.8/ 5

Chris from CJ’s Disc Jockey Service is great! He took the time to know our likes and dislikes and we also got to put down our must play list or do not play list on his website – very handy! We had such a good time dancing the night away at our reception! I would definitely recommend CJ’s for a great DJ experience.

CJ’s Disc Jockey service was awesome sauce. They were able to catch the mood that we were going for. Chris was everywhere assisting and going above and beyond in interacting with our guests. He even carried the brides meal to table for her and got us drinks when he saw we were occupied. We would definitely recommend!!
