What are your rates? Price vs. Quality...

A more important question is: Am I choosing the right company?” 

Price alone says very little about a company. Have you ever been to a wedding where you couldn’t hear the ceremony, announcements, or toasts properly? The person providing the music wasn’t dressed properly? Maybe the music was too loud, was wrong, or you had to wait around for the next event to happen?

A big key to the perfect event is timing. We’ll personally oversee the details of your event and coordinate with your vendors. We’ll be ready for the next step in your event before it comes. so you’ll be stress free.

There are many reasons why hiring the cheapest service could be a recipe for disaster, but it can be summed up in two words: Inexpensive = Inexperienced!

Do you want “Mr. Inexperienced DJ” handling the biggest day of your life?   Since 1989, A Dancing Penguin Music has done over 1500 events.  And while we’re certainly not the cheapest service, we’re definitely not the most expensive either.

We spend hours preparing for your event to ensure that the details are taken care of, organizing the special events and announcements, preparing equipment and music. Our investments in time and equipment ensure you’ll receive the very best in professional audio, crystal clear sound, and someone knowledgeable to manage the flow of your event.

Remember, you choose the kind of experience your guests will have. Planning your event is not just about selecting a gorgeous site, the right colors and the perfect décor. Selecting a DJ service or band to provide professional sound and good music is key. Music and sound will make your event come to life! It sets the tone for your special day.

From the warm, inviting music that greets your guests when they arrive, to your first dance as a couple, to the special songs that you share with your friends and family, the music you choose and the quality sound we provide will be long remembered.  A Dancing Penguin Music has the experience to ensure you have a successful event!
