How I cater to Offbeat Brides

We're a dedicated and tiny music collective who use our deep love and knowledge of music history along with analog equipment and vinyl records to bring our clients and their guests a thoughtfully curated night of music with a unique sound and look. We create a musical experience that is at the same time old and new, rare and familiar, retro and modern, and we let the music take the lead, without hiding behind flashy lights and loud emceeing.

"DJ Ali is absolutely amazing! From entrance music to the ceremony, to dinner and cocktail hour, she made the whole evening so incredibly special. She was open to collaboration but really shone when we just let her do her thing. She started out the evening with lots of easy crowd-pleasers (Jackson 5, Motown and others) and was so great about reading the crowd and getting everyone up out of their seats to dance. By the end of the night we were dancing to '90s hip hop and some newer hip hop/pop music. Absolutely nothing about her playlist felt tired or boring or conventional, but it was all accessible music that our friends and family loved. We have already had a friend talk about flying her down for a wedding in Florida – she's that good." -Amy S
