We used Down the Shore DJs for our wedding at the Flander's Hotel - They were great to work with - booking was easy and they were very responsive! DJ Alan was our DJ for the wedding and he did an amazing job! We were actually married before our wedding celebration and asked him to make sure he didn't announce us as newlyweds - so he announced us as Mr. and Mrs. 179 days later - it got a great roar from the crowd and made us feel comfortable! He kept the party going from the very beginning - Also he saw that we were really into 90s and early 2000 music as that is what we requested for dinner time and he recorded a LIVE Tonic song from a concert we went to and played it specially over dinner! They are a great company and have a lot of personal touch!

Our wedding reception was a huge success. Our DJs were professional, friendly and super helpful. They kept the dance floor packed the whole night! Everyone loved the cocktail hour and dinner music, I just picked out a handful of our favorites and they filled in beautifully with song selections that pleased everyone young and old. My main requirement was that everyone have fun, and they certainly did. I would recommend Down the Shore DJs, because they read the crowd perfectly, they are a great value and are a pleasure to work with!

I was so pleased to work with Down the Shore DJs. They have fantastic prices which they post on their website(try to find that when searching for a DJ.. few and far between) They were honest and up front with their pricing.. provide photo booth services, as well as many others. They were great with communication and all my guests raved about them after the wedding! They played great music all night and there was never a shortage of people on the dance floor. They allowed me to enjoy my entire wedding without any worries or interruptions! Perfection all the way around!!! Thank you for making my wedding everything I hoped for!!

They were great! Everyone had an amazing time. I was happy to see everyone out on the dance floor almost the whole night. (That was what we wanted.) They were very professional, and accommedating. Since we decided to add a cocktail hour just days before wedding, and asked them to add music for that time as well. Our DJ and Emcee did a great job and at a great price.

I would like to take a minute to thank you for making Jennifer's and Daniel's wedding day so special. We are so happy that we chose Down the Shore DJ's to provide the music for their wedding reception at the Ocean City Yacht Club. Alan was wonderful. He truly made the day quite memorable. Alan had the knack for keeping things moving and for providing what the audience wanted in terms of music. Even those quests that were not dancing enjoyed watching those that were. Many of our guests that we thought would be leaving early stayed to enjoy the music and festivities. Even the children in attendance had so much fun dancing. Alan had to announce the "last dance". He truly made the reception. As I returned to work this week several of the ladies said how much they enjoyed Alan.

Thanks so much.

My wedding was amazing! Down the Shore DJs did a great job keeping everyone dancing and played great songs. Both Jerry and Alan were very professional and polite. I had a few guests tell me my wedding was the first wedding they actually went out and danced. Every one had such a amazing time! Thank you so much !

I would definitely recommend Down the Shore DJ's. They were absolutely wonderful working with us before our wedding and did a great job of getting all the wedding guests up on the dance floor. Our guests had a great time and commented on the great DJ service that we had. THank you again!!

I highly recommend Jerry and Alan, they were wonderful to work with and made the night a ton of fun. I spoke with Alan when looking for DJ's and he was so easy to talk to and was very understanding of what I wanted even when I wasn't necessarily clear. They worked with me to make sure my husband and I had a great night without going over our budget. The online paperwork about reception details and song choices was a huge help and a lot of fun to go through. It allowed my husband and I to get ourselves organized and put Alan on the same page as us. They played every song we asked for and if there were any questions or issues they found husband or me immediately to run it by us before proceeding

Ocean City Wedding

 

I had so many guests come to me as the groom and rave about how impressed they were with the DJ's. It made me very proud that we chose them. They are very flexible with the payment plans...I paid over the course of 18 months and they were ok with it. We have no complaints...only wonderful things to say about them. They took care of everything and made it very simple...which I cannot say about our bakery! they were awful! Pick these guys...you will not regret it!

Avalon Country Club Wedding

 

Alan did such a wonderful job at our Cape May wedding. The planning process was so nice and smooth it put our minds at ease, knowing we chose a DJ who was well organized. Jerry covered all the details with us for our special day. We planned out every part of our wedding, and Jerry double checked everything.

 

The music for the ceremony was beautiful.... not too loud, nor too soft, and sounded nice and clear. The microphone setups were great as well. Alans set ups were all nice and neat. For the reception the music was fantastic. Alan played exactly what we wanted and kept the flow of the day moving nicely. When people were dancing, he kept that kind of music going. He did a nice job transitioning through the different types of music.

 

We can't thank Alan enough for the wonderful day that he provided us with through his music. Thank you so much! We highly recommend Down the Shore DJ's!

My husband and I were very pleased with Down the Shore DJs. We had Tom Pacitti playing guitar for our ceremony and cocktail hour, and DJ Alan entertaining our guests at the reception. They both did an excellent job. We received many compliments from our guests and also from the other vendors at our wedding. Thanks again for everything!

He was happy to add in our additional little touches and made our night so much fun! Our guests had a blast and he kept everyone on their feet the entire night! We couldn't have picked a better DJ!

Thanks so much for all of your help in making our event the success that it was. Jerry & Alan were great throughout the night and rolled right along with whatever we threw at them.

I will certainly keep you in mind for any future events that we have.

Our DJs were awesome and the perfect DJ's for our wedding reception! Jerry was quick to respond to my emails and calls prior to the wedding, and made my wedding planning easy. During the reception, they made sure they infused our own personal style into the cocktail hour (a little bit of country), and kept the dance floor packed with our family and friends for the rest of the night. We received tons of compliments on what a great mix and variety of music they played. I would absolutely recommend Affordable Entertainment DJ's!!

Brian & Amanda

We had a great time at our wedding reception. The DJs were great! You guys played all the music everyone wanted to hear and had everyone out of their seats dancing, laughing and having a great time! No one could have done a better job. We are still getting compliments from our guests! Thanks so much for everything. We will definitely recommend and use you for anything that may come up in the future.

Sincerely,

Danny and Jody

 

 

 Frequently Asked Questions                                  

Q: Why are your prices so low?

If you’ve been surfing the net looking for a DJ you’ve probably noticed that we are one of the very few that list our prices. That’s because we have a different philosophy than most. Our goal is to provide the Best Entertainment at the Best Price anywhere! As a result we do not alter our pricing based on event date, venue, or geographical area. While it is true that quality entertainment may be the most important ingredient in planning a successful wedding reception, that shouldn't mean that you need to break the bank to get it.

Q: Besides Price, Why should we choose Down the Shore DJ’s?

1. We understand how important this day is to you and we will prepare for it as if it were our own Wedding.
2. Personalized Service - We will not book your date and forget you. We will be with you every step of the way to answer questions, offer suggestions, and help in any way that we can.
3. We are Professionals - From our Attire to our Equipment to our Performance, Attention to detail makes us the best. We know how to read a crowd, keep the music flowing, and keep your guests dancing! 
4. The Music - Our digital sound systems feature top brand components including Yamaha, Fender, Electro Voice, Pro Audio, Audio-Technica, Shure, Peavy, and more. Our extensive  music library is computer catalogued, making any song available virtually instantly

Q: Is setup time included in your price?

You never have to pay for setup or takedown time. We typically arrive an hour prior to your scheduled start time and will be set up long before your first guest arrives. But it's on our own time! The same applies for takedown time after your event.

Q: Do you take breaks?

Our services are uninterrupted and non-stop. From our scheduled start time to our scheduled end time we will never stop the music. Much unlike bands that need to stop and rest, we can just keep playing straight through your event!

Q: Can we choose the music to be played at our event?

Absolutely! We've had customers that have chosen every song for the entire event and others that have left the music selection completely up to us. Our recommendation is to provide us with a list of "must play" songs and list of "play if possible" songs. This will leave plenty of room for requests from your guests and DJ selections. You may also stipulate that we not take requests from you guests. But have fun and select music you want to hear and dance to. After all, it's your event!

Q: Can we have a Do Not Play List?

Absolutely! Not everyone enjoys the same music, and while most guest lists include a variety of ages and tastes, there may be some songs or types of music that you absolutely do not want to hear.


Q: What if we want a song that you don't have?

While our song music library encompasses thousands of hits from the 1940s to today, it's possible that you may have a few requests that are not in our library. Our Event Music Planner form Includes space for unlimited requests. We will obtain all the music requested prior to your event.


Q: How loud do you play the music?

One of the most frequent complaints about bands and DJs alike is that they play the music too loud. It doesn't have to be that way! During cocktail and dinner hours  the speakers will be strategically positioned for even sound coverage throughout the banquet room at a comfortable level. When it's time to dance, the speakers will be repositioned for maximum sound coverage on the dance floor and minimum sound exposure throughout the rest of the banquet room. This means that on the dance floor the music will be at a very comfortable, yet powerful enough level for dancing. Throughout the rest of the room the music will be less predominant and your guests will actually be able to carry on a normal conversation without screaming!


Q: What about lighting?

All of our Wedding Packages include quality dance floor lighting. (lighting packages can be upgraded at your request)


Q: Do you have back-up equipment?
 Always - we don’t leave home without it!

 

Q: How interactive are your DJs?

Our level of interaction is determined by you - the client. Your vision of the type of atmosphere that you want to create will determine our level of interaction. From Elegant to Electric, we are experts at creating the desired mood!


Q: What about tipping?
 
By no means is tipping/gratuity mandatory or expected.   If at the end of the night you feel that we have surpassed your expectations and you want to tip, we would accept it as the ultimate compliment. But you're under no obligation to do so.

Q: Are you licensed and insured?

Down the Shore DJ’s is fully licensed and insured

Q: How early should we book?

We’ve taken bookings as early as 2 years in advance, and as late as 2 days. Generally speaking 1 year to 6 months is most common.

Q: How do we book our date?

Contact us via phone or email (see contact page) We offer a personal consultation to discuss your needs. Once we determine the appropriate package for you, we require a signed event agreement and a 50% deposit to hold your date.
