$00. ( Free ) Exciting Grand entrance:

When you are introduced into the room on the day of your celebration, this is possibly the most important segment of your entire day. We line up whoever is going to be introduced in, and then we give them a list of detailed options Example: “Okay everyone, May I have your attention…Shhhhhhhhhhhh Thank you, my name is Curtis and I am about to announce you in for the Grand Entrance. When you hear your name called you are going to step through the door, into the ballroom. And stop. Here is your chance to give Mr and Mrs Smith yet another wonderful wedding gift. You will do your pose, as crazy or conservative as you like. Once the cameras have flashed and the photographer is done with you, then it will be time to head for the dance floor. This is where you go into your routine…maybe like this hop hop, step step…turn in a circle, now I throw the flowers to you, and then you throw them back to me. Then I take off my jacket. You hold out your arm as I hang my jacket over your arm…then I lay on the floor and you put one foot on me, as though you have conquered me. Then we jump up and get into line on the dance floor” “ You do not have to do this and we do not expect you to, but keep in mind…Mr and Mrs Smith are going to watch this video footage for the next 50 wonderful years, so now is the time to create some memorable footage, if you are in the mood !!!” “Is everybody ready ? Any Questions ? Lets Gooooooooo ! ?

$00. ( Free ) Toast played over your Last Dance:

When your toast or toasts happen early on in the event, we have our digital equipment recording the toast. Then, over the next few hours, we find time to edit it and remove any unwanted syllables or uneeded parts and we create a studio quality clip of the toast or toasts. Then, during your final dance of the celebration we wait for the right moment, lower the volume of the song appropriately and allow the edited, perfected toast(s) to be played. People are amazed and impressed ! Currently only available with the Curtis and Anna package.


$00. ( Free ) All Guests Up – Circle of Love:

My opinion is every event should begin with all guests at the edges of the dance floor creating a huge “Circle of Love” and every event should end the same way. In each case the guest or guests of honor, or the bride and groom are to be in the center of the dance floor having a wonderful dance as friends and family are up close and personal, at the edge of the floor. At the beginning of the event it lets your guests know that this is really a special celebration, and at the end of the event, it gets us all back together again for one last very personal hurrah, and a big group hug, before it is time to disperse and go back to our normal lives.


$00. ( Free ) The Shoe Game:

This is for any wedding or anniversary, and it never misses. It is to be done near the end of dinner, with about 15 – 20 minutes to go until we open the dance floor. The Bride and Groom are positioned back to back in the center of the dance floor. Each has removed their shoes and each is now holding a Bride shoe in one hand and a Groom shoe in the other. And then I begin on mic: “Today Mr and Mrs Smith begin their journey as husband and wife with all of you – their closest friends and family in attendance. We are about to find out, at this point in the journey, who knows who better. John, Mary, each of you has a bride shoe in one hand and a Groom shoe in the other. I am going to ask you a series of questions. If the answer is Bride you will hold up your bride shoe. If the answer is groom you will hold up your groom shoe. Here is your first question. In your relationship…who takes longer…in the bathroom ? Who watches, more TV ? Who is the bigger sports fan ? Who has the better Memory ? Who is the better driver ? Who is the faster driver ?” Blah Blah Blah…And then we get to the final question “In your relationship who loves the other one more ? “ For this final question they each have been told secretly by me, in advance, to hold up both shoes. So you will hear the entire room collectively say “Awwwwww”. Then we go back to finishing our dessert.


$00. ( Free ) Sweet Caroline dance Floor Opener:

This is for any wedding or anniversary…or any fun celebration. It is to be done at the end of dinner, and it is a great way to open your dance floor, without hearing a DJ say “The dance floor is open”. The Bride and Groom are positioned with the DJ at the edge of the dance floor, so that from left to right you see, Mary, the DJ and John, all standing shoulder to shoulder, left to right. The DJ then announces that we need everybody on the dance floor for a special segment with the bride and groom. Once we have everyone on the dance floor, we divide the floor in half so that John is on one half of the dance floor with half of the guests, and Mary is on the other half of the dance floor with the other half of the guests. We then instruct them as the song Sweet Caroline plays that when we get to the chorus, Mary’s side of the dance floor ( Team Mary ) will shout “Sweet Caroline Bup Bup Bah” and then team John will echo Good times never seemed so good “So good, So Good, So Good ! “ The judges then tell us that in round one Mary’s team is loudest. Then in round 2, John’s team ties it up. Then the third and final time comes, and the screaming is deafening, it is soooo loud. The song fades out and then the DJ says “Congratulations to Team John… … … for a wonderful 2nd place finish” “And that means that Team Mary is our winning team today…and John you have learned something to day that will stay with you for the next 50 wonderful years. Mary…always…wins ! “ And at that precise moment we bring in the dance music and everyone goes crazy dancing and your pack dance floor happens from the very beginning !


$00. ( *Free ) Ceremony Sound & Protocol:

*As long as you have purchased the time, the equipment and expertise are included at no extra charge. Usually, you add one extra hour for your ceremony on site. 30 minutes is for the Pre Ceremony music, as friends and family are arriving and taking their seats, and 30 minutes is for your actual Ceremony. If you have already hired us for that hour, we bring the mic for the clergy, we place our speakers at the back of your guests, we line everyone up, we make sure everyone is comfortable, and we go over every component of your ceremony with your clergy, in advance. This way, your Ceremony is calm, smooth and beautiful. .


$00. ( Free ) Special Father daughter / Mother – Son dances:

Once in your lifetime, this special moment arises. We like to spend some time and do a tiny bit of planning to ensure that it comes off beautifully. First the DJ will meet at the edge of the dance floor with the Bride, her Father, the Groom, and his Mother, and they will have a huddle as they make their plans. Your DJ will ask the Father of the bride to wait at the opposite end of the dance floor from where the groom, his wife and his Mom and the DJ are standing. Then, the DJ will announce “At this time, our beautiful bride Mary is about to enjoy a special dance with the other man in her life – Her Father” “Her Father” is the trigger phrase that we all agreed to in advance. When you hear that phrase, the Father begins to walk from the opposite end of the dance floor toward the center. At the same time, the Bride and Groom begin to walk hand in hand from the opposite side of the dance floor, and they meet in the center. At this point the Groom will give his new father in law a big manly hug and a hand shake and then hand over his beautiful Bride . Then, the Groom walks back to his Mom, and stands beside her, watching his Wife dance with her Dad. At the end of the dance, the Bride and her Dad walk off the dance floor and your DJ announces the Mother Son dance. It is so wonderful peoples’ eyes well up with tears and everyone with a camera rushes to take pictures.


$500 Twin TVs:

Twin TV Package includes two High Definition 42″ plasma monitors. The quality is stunning. Bring your own photos on a disc or a flash drive and we will in turn it into a slide show, on the spot.

The more we shoot, the more photos are uploaded into your “live” slide show. After your celebration is over we take all of the photos from your celebration and: 1) We make a slide show. That slide show is loaded to our web site and stays there for all time. 2) We take all the photos and the slide show and put them all on a custom DVD for you and we ship the DVD presentation to you.


$400. Recorded Voice Over music:

In our recording studio you recite your vows to each other. We digitally add your spoken vows to the beginning of your first dance song and then, on your wedding day, play it for your first dance. Recorded Toast: When your best man, maid of honor etc. make their toasts to you, we record them, and then during your final dance of the evening, we play back the pre recorded toasts over your last dance, while you are dancing. It’s amazing digital wizardry and your friends and family will truly be… amazed. Only available with the Curtis & Anna Package.
