High-Energy School Dances


Have you ever asked the DJ for the latest trap hit or the newest EDM bootleg remix to only get the “who’s it by” response? This is the sign of a DJ who doesn’t know the music! Our DJs not only know the latest hits, but also listen to them on a daily basis.

So what else makes us the right school dance company for you?
  • Custom edits so chaperones won’t cut-off a great song for one bad word.
  • Remixes, mashups, and live video mixes that will WOW your friends!
  • Earth-shaking bass, EDM festival lighting, and hundreds of feet of video screens. Need we say more?
  • We get the music before it’s out on the radio including your favorite underground hits.
  • We have Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram, Blogs and of course email and text! What easier way to talk to your DJ?


All Syracuse and Central New York DJs should have a minimum $2,000,000 insurance policy, licenses, cleaner-than-radio edits, and a clean record. This doesn’t mean they all do, but the real professionals have these!

So what makes us stand out?
  • Custom clean edits, because the radio does a poor job editing music
  • Custom edited music videos
  • Unique crowd control- we'll work with you on a code system so we can take care of any issues!
  • Our amazing marketing and promotional campaigns always help sell more tickets than ever
  • We’re GREEN! (Low power consumption means you save money!)
  • We fit every budget from $795 to $10,000+.
