Make Your Wedding And Reception Unforgettable With Our DJ’s

You can make your wedding reception the best ever. When you know how important a role our entertainment plays in the success of the entire reception!

We understand that for most Bride’s & Groom’s choosing the right entertainment is often difficult and confusing, yet it is the most important decision you’ll make for your wedding reception. Since everyone claims to be “the best”, how can you really find out who is good, and who is amateur? For a once in a lifetime event like a wedding reception, you need to start with a professional. Don’t take chances with a friend who should be a guest or a relative with an iPod and a huge music collection. Although people mean well, many lack the experience or skill in public speaking, music programming, wedding protocol and the flexibility that would prepare them to handle unexpected details and be creative to produce a fun and inviting event.

  • I recommend you start with a Wedding Entertainment Specialist. A DJ from a club or school dance may be great, but they’re not necessarily right for your wedding. A Wedding Entertainment Specialist has years of experience and will know wedding protocol, various music genres and the planning it takes to organize a once in a lifetime event such as a wedding.
  • Meet with the DJ Company. This is not a decision that can be made over the phone. You must be sure you are comfortable with the entertainer’s style and see if they are organized and are a good match for you. After all, they will be representing you at your wedding reception and will be responsible for 80% of the success of your once in a lifetime event.
  • Then, check the history and background of the DJ Company. Do they have references? What do your other vendor’s say about the company? And don’t just take their word for it, call several of their references and vendor’s to find out WHY they liked them.
  • Don’t make the mistake of choosing entertainment by price alone. If the DJ is not a good fit, but the right price, it won’t matter a bit if they ruin your special day that you spent big money and many months planning.

Everything was excellent plus! We couldn't have imagined having a better entertainer. You went above and beyond excellent service, especially because we were out of state and this was a destination wedding. If you don't book with APE Entertainment, you are just plain crazy!!!

This was such a positive experience for us. We've had tons of positive comments from our guests weeks afterward. You made my daughter's wedding the dream wedding she always wanted! Thank you so much for the awesome job you did.
