Another excellent review

“I just wanted to send a note of thanks for the entertainment you provided for my guests. My wedding day was the most unforgettable time of my life and I know the music had a lot to do with that.
I will never forget listening to “This will be our year” as I waited alone to be told the time had come to walk down the aisle. Nor can I forget the absolutely fantastic time I had on the dance floor with my family and friends.


Thank you for making it such a fun memorable night! You were just WONDERFUL!


Very Best,



Recent Reviews

“Chris was absolutely amazing! They were open to all of our needs and had a great selection of music (we had polka, salsa, 2-step, traditional and top 40). They were also super open to changes in our schedule throughout the night. I couldn’t imagine a greater guy to throw an awesome bash for our night!”-Wedding 11/3/2012

“I was so impressed with the professional, quality service that Special Occasions Dj provided for my wedding. Joe helped me along before the wedding date with guidance on music selections and answered whatever questions I had in a timely manner. He was a great announcer and was very flexible the day of the wedding when last minute changes had to be made to the schedule. The music was perfect! He kept the music appropriate for all events of the reception and had the dance floor hopping! He was even able to get last minute music requests without any hassle. He played a huge part in making our special day perfect and for that I will be forever grateful! Thank you!!”-Wedding 10/20/2012

North Carolina Arboretum

Recently DJ Chris had the pleasure of performing at our first wedding at the North Carolina Arboretum…….and was impressed. That is quite the accomplishment for a DJ with 16 years experience.

The wedding reception was held in the open air amphitheater, which is the perfect location for wedding ceremony’s with 40 to 150 guests. The setting is very tranquil and worth every penny and highly recommended. This does come with one caveat as the amphitheater is open air and weather does play a part in how the ceremony will go. As an experienced DJ professional, we do suggest that you have an alternate plan for the wedding ceremony plan just in case the weather doesn’t behave.

The reception was held at the Baker center (just a short walk from the amphitheater) and was just as impressive with it’s two levels, nice floor layout, and massive fireplace. Just a perfect setting to enjoy this special day with family and friends and one we highly recommend. As with must public forums though, receptions are not allowed to start until after 5 (once the hall is closed to the public) and that has to be included in your scheduling.

We highly recommend the Arboretum and if you would like to learn more about their Green Weddings please visit the N.C. Arboretum .

Bring the show on the road – St. Augustine Florida Style

“Thank you for all that you did in helping to make the March 10th Galvin-Vera wedding at Sanchez House in St. Augustine unforgettably successful.  Joe arrived early and set up his equipment.  He was professionally attired, eager and enthusiastic in providing whatever music and announcement services we desired, and played everything from pre-wedding, wedding march, conversational and dining music, segueing right into an evening of happy dancing.  The guests enjoyed the music, and the bride and groom pronounced his services “perfect.”  We all had a wonderful evening”

Special Occasions DJ service will gladly travel all along the east coast providing DJ services. Due to our progressive pricing strategies our clients find that after paying our standard packages fees and covering our traveling expenses we can very often be less expensive than local DJ’s in locations that are noted as being wedding destination areas.

So if you are planning a wedding in Charlotte, Washington D.C., or Florida……Feel free to call us for a quote. The worse than can happen is we cannot give you a competitive bid…..The best is that you find an incredible DJ service for a price better than you expected.
