Yikes! a scary picture isn’t it?
Many couples think to hire someone in the family for cheaper.
“We can get our uncle Dave to do it”
“Cousin Bobby has some speakers and a laptop lets just pay him to do it”
“Let’s get one of the groomsmen DJ our Ann Arbor Wedding”
We have seen and heard it all. The bottom line is, you pay for what you get for when hiring an Ann Arbor Wedding DJ. Unless Uncle Jim runs a 5-star DJ company that is a different case but 98% of the time when you hire a DJ at your event below $850. They are a hobbyist or someone just getting started. The season pros have done their craft for a while and have done tones of weddings to back it up. Keep Scrolling for a PRO DJ Setup Below
A Big difference in setup wouldn’t you say?
T&M Entertainment’s Ann Arbor Wedding DJ services provide the experience of a real DJ with pro djs setups.
Many companies you talk to will sell you on fancy equipment and having the most up to date playlist. Although good equipment and a modern playlist helps.
It won’t solve the problem your company has had in the past of bad DJs aka jukeboxes. You see, a DJ can have all the tools in the world but if they don’t know how to use them they are useless.
Real DJs read crowds and save the hottest and most energetic songs for the peak of the evening.
We read our crowds to play certain genres at certain times. During dinner soft music is great at a normal talking volume but when 11 pm hits. It’s time to crank out those jams that get people going!
Real DJs balance guests requests and keeping the dance floor packed.
We play all requests but at the appropriate time. Nobody wants to kill the dance floor with a request that doesn’t fit the current mix. The djs also stay professional when a guest has not heard their song yet and keeps asking us.
Don’t worry, they are never bugging us. We are at your wedding to play the music your guests like. Not ours!
Real DJs mix music artistically. How many times have you heard a DJ play one song wait for it to end have a pause then play another?
Warning! That’s a jukebox, not a DJ. A DJ will play one song and have the next song overlap it were your guests are dancing to the same beat and not even noticing. That’s called Flow. A good DJ has an amazing and energetic flow throughout the whole evening.
When a song is hot, and the dance floor is packed we step into the audience with our iPad to hear how the levels are of the speakers. We adjust certain sounds of our system live so you get 100% real and ear-pleasing quality.
The truth is you can dish out a ton of money for DJ equipment and buy the same thing. What makes T & M Entertainment different from everyone else? We are real DJs! What does that exactly mean? We don’t spin like jukeboxes we mix music together artistically.
You can hear one song flow into another flawlessly and seamlessly. We read our crowds. We aren’t going to have our faces buried behind the computer screen all night we are going to look at you and If we see a song is not doing to hot we mix into another one like a true Ann Arbor Wedding DJ.
If a song is doing great, we let it ride out (The meaning of “Jockey”). We play music at the right time. You can’t play “Shots” by LMFAO during dinner right? I mean If your cool with it we are too, but I’m sure you get the point.
Your guests can make requests. You read that right! How many weddings have you been to where the DJ says “sure I will play your request “but never does? How many DJs have told you “I don’t have that song”? at T & M Entertainment we play ALL REQUESTS. We fit all guests requests into our flawless and seamless mix.
After all, you hired a Ann Arbor Wedding DJ to play the tunes you like. Not a techno remix of the Isley brothers shout. We have all requests and songs out there. Wait a minute… didn’t we just say that we only have 1 million? With advancements with technology and internet being everywhere, you are. We have data where ever we go. So if there is a song we don’t have on our physical hard drive we can download it from our professional and legal DJs sites and play it for you.
Social Media Song Requests
You ever feel like you might be bothering the DJ by walking up to them? Even though you will never bother us we made it easy to take requests from social media. Just pick up our social media card on your dinner table. Add us, then Message, DM or Snap your request to us. Talk about 21st century!

When a song is trending in the USA and has a dance to it. We just don’t have the song. We research why the songs are viral. Understanding and educating other guests about the song. Yesterdays music will always be classics.
We have all hits from all eras. Understanding why “don’t stop believing” is such a ballad and why “Motown” is historic.
A DJ that brings value always brings back up equipment. Things go wrong time to time but can a cheap DJ be ready to change out equipment that does not work during the event and keep the party going?

Your Ann Arbor Wedding Dj will not only DJ like an artist they also understand what It means to be a DJ and understanding the DJ culture. The meaning DJ (Disc Jockey) comes from the old school way of djing. With discs such as vinyl or cd.
The term Jockey was picked up in the late ’60s when DJ’s first started to become mainstream and it derives from the game polo. Where sportsmen would jockey the ball all the way to the end of the field and try to score. This is applied to DJ’s when they jockey a song to the end from vinyl or disc.
A dj is more than just someone that plays music. A truly great DJ, just for the moment, can make a whole room fall in love. Because djing is not about choosing a few tunes. It is about generating shared moods; it’s about understanding the feelings of a group of people and directing them to a better place.
In the hands of a master, records create rituals of spiritual communion that can be the most powerful events in people’s lives. Our team of DJs are not in the business for revenue but for passion.
Our owner and top Dj Disc jockey Toni was raised since the age of 5 from his father mentoring of over ( to this date) 35 years for being a DJ. Taken over the family business and providing a 110% continuation of his father’s legacy. Time to time we even bring out Toni’s father to DJ to give our clients the experience of a 35-year veteran.
T&M Entertainment’s Ann Arbor wedding DJ service likes all of our clients to understand the difference between hiring a cheap DJ vs a DJ that brings value. Cheap DJs look amazing on the cover with their price but please understand they are charging this cheap rate for a reason.
They typically are inexperienced, beginners, and jukeboxes. We understand everyone has to start somewhere but your Detroit wedding DJ Service is not a nonperishable item. You can’t return the Dj Service the next day after the evening’s entertainment was horrible.
When you first hear how much a Ann Arbor wedding DJ actually costs you might be in shock, It’s just a person playing a playlist right? This is not the case. A DJ can make your night memorable or a nightmare and the cost of your DJ will show it. Not sure what we are talking about? read below!
A good friend of mine was in the market to buy a bicycle. He went down to the local bike shop and saw the price of a bike he liked. It was $200. He said … that’s kinda steep. He went down to the discount store and saw a bike for $50. He went ahead and bought that bike.
3 months into buying that bike. The handlebars started to fall off. He went down to the repair shop and they said it will cost $50 to fix the handlebars and add new ones. Another month passed by and the chain needs to be replaced.
The store says the cost will be $25 to replace. 7 Months into having his Discounted bike the entire chain and brakes came apart. He went back to the store again and they said it will cost $90 to fix. At this point, He was fed up.
He went back to the original store and bought the $200 bike. The discounted bike only lasted him 7 Months… Do you know how long his $200 bike lasted? 12 years with no issues. He still rides it till this day.
High price bike $200 and it lasted 12 years
Discount Bike $50 + $50 + $25 + 90 = $215 and it lasted 7 months
