Bustld: What do you think makes you different as a DJ?
Schellie: This is an evolving answer for us. My husband and I were both voted most unique, so we built a team of people who are unique, as well. To our core, our company is unique and that comes with our business model being structured differently. We are not a one man show, we have several DJs. We even design our own DJ pods themselves and build them ourselves. Being different at the core and how we run our business and treat people.
Bustld: How would you describe your style and ideal couple?
Schellie: We’re different, so our clients tend to be different. Unique couples, multi-cultural couples, interracial couples, LGBTQ+ couples. We don’t have one style of client. Couples book us because they want to feel something. People who are unique who want a unique experience.
Bustld: Why do you think your clients hire you?
Schellie: It goes back to people hiring us because they want to feel something and hire someone they can connect with. There are so many different types of DJs in the industry, our clients hire us because of our ability to pack the dance floor and give feelings. Our couples are looking for someone who they think is cool and our team has really cool people. Our couples really want to like and believe in who they hire. They want to be comfortable. They get all of that with us. Also, we know all different music from all different genres. When we play for your grandma and her friends, we play what your grandma and her friends want to hear.
Bustld: What is the best part of being a DJ?
Schellie: I enjoy seeing other people enjoy what I’m doing. I enjoy connecting with people. Music transcends everything. People can always connect in music; it’s always been a common connector in life. It’s natural.
Bustld: What's your favorite moment on wedding day?
Schellie: I love seeing a packed dance floor. Whenever the dance floor opens, and it swarms with people and when it stays packed the entire time is the best.
Bustld: Tell us about your company backstory.
Schellie: Our company started out as a wedding photography company more than 13 years ago. From there we saw couples wanted to hire a videographer, so we added videography two years after that. Then we added a photo booth option, then a DJ offering after that. People wanted to bundle audio and visual together.
