He lived in California for two years and has had the honor of djing on both the east and west coasts. Taylor has always had an aspiration for entertaining people through music. He has wanted to be a disc jockey from as early as his preadolescent years. During his many years of being a professional disc jockey, he has gained valuable experience by starting his career with one of the largest DJ companies on the east coast. He brings the professionalism and meticulous detailing to every event and wedding that he performs at. Taylor has built a reputation that is memorable and lasts long after the party is over. He builds his business from word of mouth by past clients, photographers and wedding planners he works with, and the many venues he works at.
Taylor knows that a wedding is the biggest day of someone’s life, therefore, he wants to make sure he not only meets but exceeds his clients’ expectations. He likes to give as many consultations as necessary long before the occasion to make sure the client’s desires are fulfilled.
Choosing the music for your event is very important. Ensuring your guests have a great time and are involved in the festivities is crucial to the overall success of your event. When planning your event, you may take as active a role as you would like in the music selection process. You can always utilize Taylor’s extensive music experience to help find the perfect song to go with the perfect moment. Or you can use helpful tools to search for songs that hold a special importance to you or your guests. Whichever way you decide, Taylor will have you and your guests dancing and having a great time!
“Think lighting your wedding reception site means flipping on a light switch? If you want to turn your wedding site from standard to simply stunning, you’ll probably need to take a more illuminating approach to your decor. “Lighting creates a mood,” says event designer Preston Bailey, and when it’s done well, lighting can make everything — including your wedding flowers, cake, and guests — look better.” – The Knot

Taylor will arrive two hours prior to the scheduled start time of your event unless other arrangements have been made. It typically takes about forty-five minutes to set up so this allows us to be set up before guests arrive.
Yes you can pick what music to play. You can give Taylor a list of 5 songs and tell him this is what you like and play what is suitable; or give Taylor a list of 100 songs and say stick to the list. Music is totally up to you. Click here to download Taylor’s music sheet and wedding questionnaire. The questionnaire will help Taylor customize the music selection for your reception.

All overtime is purchased on an hourly basis and the cost for overtime is outlined in your contract. Overtime must be payed via cash or check prior to the DJ continuing their performance.

I would never suggest booking any DJ service with out a written contract.

“DJ Taylor was absolutely incredible for our big day. He was easy to work with from the very beginning. He was always easy to get in touch with and would quickly return emails, phone calls and texts. We felt completely at ease working with him. He made sure every song we wanted for our wedding ceremony and reception were played. Taylor is easy going and very flexible. I would highly recommend him to absolutely anyone in search for a DJ for their wedding!”Hanna-Lee, WeddingWire
“DJ Taylor was awesome! He was extremely easy to work with and was great on the day of the wedding. Our biggest thing was keeping people dancing and he did just that. One of the best parts of a wedding is not knowing what song is going to come next and he played all the most fun ones. Thank you Taylor!”Julia H, The Knot
