Guests remember two things the most from weddings...The food and the music.
Send them home with good memories ❤
You can have the most expensive flowers, decor, dress etc. But NEVER EVER underestimate the power of your DJ.
We work hard, we play hard because you need to have the best day of your life.
Your #DJ arrives way before anyone else and is the last person that leaves your venue.
Take care of the people that bring you the music, that amplifies your speeches and creates the entire scene and success of your big day.
If your music sucks...unfortunately so does your wedding and that's the honest truth.
Every wedding is different and unique.
Your day needs to flow into your story and dream vibe.
Important things to remember:
- Good quality sound and equipment : so that everyone can hear your minister, speeches and announcements clearly.
- Pre-Ceremony music as your guests wait for the big moment
- Ceremony sound (Inside or Outside requires multiple systems and setups)
This also means that if you get married on the beach/forest or a place with no electricity, we've got you covered.
- Signing and confetti music
- Pre-drinks and Canapes ** This creates an upbeat vibe to your evening
- Speeches and Dinner ** Nice ambiance music that sets the tone and vibe - this is something that we build for you and take it up a notch closer to party time.
- First dance | Cake Cutting | Garter and Bouquet | Party Time
Unfortunately this couple were victims of...I found a cheaper quote 🙈
Pay that extra bit more for the best quality, experience and equipment.
No exceptions, make a plan and rather cut out unnecessary stuff that will make no difference to your day, but never ever compromise on your DJ.

We've been in the business of creating good times since 2011 and have done more than 500 weddings

Cancellation of services?
With COVID-19 we've put some extra measures in place.
We will try our very best to assist in any way we can, as our couples are our number 1 priority.
In the event of postponement - we will assist you on any available date at NO-ADDITIONAL cost.
We have aligned ourselves with 2 other DJ's that can assist (provided that they are available)
If we can't assist you or the two other DJ's, we will see this as a cancellation of our services.
Electricity | Generator must be provided or organized by your venue.
We provide the music and sound for your big day.
Please organize it directly with your venue before the time.
We don't mind playing through the generator and will check the schedules to make sure there are no interruptions :)
Do you take requests?
This is all up to you. If you are comfortable with requests, then so are we.
You will see in our Songbook that we ask if there any NO-GO songs and we stick to that...except of course if your guest ask you permission and you confirm it with us.
When do you set up and do sound check?
U-One usually arrives 3 - 3.5 hours before the time to do the set up and sound check :)
