Philosophy

Our teams philosophy is pretty simple. Treat every event and client like it’s our Super Bowl and provide unparalleled dedication to the success of your big day. Whatever that goal may be.

What we offer is an elevated wedding experience that brings families who have yet to meet together through music and dance. Weddings can be awkward sometimes, its a great entertainers job to help bridge that gap. That is what we do best. Elegant moments that make you the center of attention.

 

Our clients are often an extension of our company, and as we get to know each of you better, it gives us the chance to throw you a wedding or event your friends and family will never forget. Welcome to a better way to party in style.

Mission

Communication

You will never deal with an easier team of professionals when setting up the logistics for your big day. We will be your go-to liaisons from the beginning of the process to the end, organizing the most important parts of the event with you prior, and letting your Photographer know when the big moments of the party are about to happen during. Consider us your master timekeepers of the event.

Unique Events

Midas Entertainment is not like your regular old DJ's. We take a unique approach to sound, lighting, and entertainment. Blending and combining all elements of sight and sound to create big scale, memorable events. We are passionate, insanely creative, and capable of providing you your exact needs each and every night.

Spotlight

We run our events so that you are the spotlight of the show, not us. Often times wedding and event DJs can come off as cheesy or annoying. Attempting to steal the attention from the guests instead of directing attention where it should be intended. Midas Entertainment has a perfect blend of charisma without hubris. Never stealing the spotlight from the main attraction, YOU!

Top Questions to ask your dJ before your next big event

a) Is my wedding or event date available? This one is pretty obvious. However, be mindful that many wedding & event DJs book 12 to 18 months out and sometimes even two-plus years in advance. It is always best to be forward thinking when selecting quality talent for an event. To continue reading this article and find more helpful tips for your next big event click the title above....

Wedding DJ Prices?? Why The Difference?

When searching for a wedding DJ you are almost always going to run into a wide range of prices and skill levels. Sometimes the entry will start from as little as $150 upwards to the $10k price range. So why do wedding DJ prices vary so much and what do you get for your expenditure? Many quality DJs do not price their services according to the value they offer. Some are afraid of charging too much and pricing themselves out of their perceived market. While in many cases chair covers or flowers well exceed the cost of the DJ. This despite the fact that interviewed couples overwhelmingly say that the DJ proved to be the most important factor of their wedding.

What does a wedding or event dJ do?

For those that aren’t familiar with professional Wedding or Event DJs, it may seem like all they do is push a button and play music. Planning and playing back music is one of the core functions of the DJ, however, there is so much more that goes on and timing necessary to perfectly blend all elements of a well-orchestrated party. The Wedding DJ is your entertainment coordinator and many times the wedding DJ stands in as pseudo-Wedding Coordinator. To some people’s surprise, a wedding DJ starts to prepare well before the actual wedding day. In fact, it starts with the very first contact.

Selecting Wedding Songs. Tips To Get It Done.

Many people feel a certain infinity towards music. Be it a song they grew up with, or something that happened at a point in time that makes it timeless. And this passion for songs can help create the foundation for an awesome playlist for your wedding. However, some people can take it overboard and put 50, 60, even 100 songs on their must-play list and sometimes an equal amount of Do Not Play on their list. Selecting wedding songs can be a big challenge for some people. I encourage my couples to add a fair amount of songs for the ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, and dance segments (usually around 25 in total) so that way I can determine the general direction that the event should go. But I also make a point that the DJ should also have the flexibility to read the crowd and to be able to change up the direction as it seems fit to ensure that everyone has a good time. There is nothing worse than having a rigid playlist and a crowd who is not enjoying themselves. But what should be, and shouldn’t be on the lists?
