  • How Much Experience Do Your DJs Have?
    Let's start from the beginning. Our company has two divisions... Weddings By DJ Kurtis Cross & Dynamic DJ Entertainment (DDE). Each of our DJs starts on the DDE side, as an event DJ. In their DDE tenure, these DJs travel with our wedding DJ team, while performing non-wedding events, under the DDE name. This DJ experience includes school dances, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, corporate events & all events... other than weddings. Simultaneously, our event DJs shadow our wedding DJs to gain experience in everything weddings. From set-up to MC skills... music selection to mastering a wedding day timeline... interacting with fellow vendors to lighting, visual effects and event elevations, our veteran DJ crew trains our event DJ crew. Once an event DJ masters 300 events, we then complete their training with six months of exclusive wedding work with DJ Kurtis Cross. Upon satisfactory completion of 300 events, wedding training with our veteran crew & an exclusive stint with DJ Kurtis Cross, we promote our events DJs to wedding DJs.
  • How Far In Advance Should We Book?
    Generally speaking, our busiest months (in-season) are April - November. If your wedding celebration is during any of these months, booking 12 - 18 months in advance, is an excellent idea. During our busiest months, we regularly sell out of all Friday, Saturday & Sunday dates. During the "off-season" (December - March) booking 9 - 12 months in advance is a good idea.
  • How Do We Reserve Our Date?
    If you'd like to reserve your date, simply call or email our office, with your date & details. We will email over the required booking forms. We ask that you complete the booking forms and submit them to us along with a deposit to secure the date and one of our DJs. Please note that all deposits are non-refundable. Once we receive your deposit, we do not cancel or overbook for any reason. Your date will be guaranteed on our calendar.
  • How Do Payments Work?
    To secure your date on our calendar, a deposit payment is due within 48 hours. Once received, along with completed booking forms, your date is guaranteed on our calendar. All balance payments are due three (3) business days prior to your wedding date. We accept payment via PayPal, Cash App & Zelle. Sorry, checks and cash are not accepted. Please contact us for an invoice with a link where you can submit payment online. If you'd prefer a monthly payment plan, please advise and we will structure equal monthly payments (up to six months) according to your preferred payment date.
  • What About Music & Requests?
    1. Music - Our music library is vast. With more than 300,000 songs in each of our musical libraries, our DJs have a seemingly endless song selection to support your ceremony, cocktail hour & celebration. 2. Requests - We welcome your requests. As this is your wedding day, we want to hear from you! Yes, we will honor your "must play" and "do not play" selections. If you approve, we will also welcome requests from your guests. Not to worry, our DJs are polished professionals who know how to politely decline a request that is on your "do not play" list or a genre that does not mesh with your preferred music style. 3. Song Suggestions - Our online planning software has thousands of song suggestions and a prompt-based music database to help with suggested songs. No need to worry about researching the perfect song... our system will help with that! 4. Music Program - Each music program is expertly crafted to match the vibe & energy of each moment.

  • How Does The Planning Process Work?
    We believe in stress-free planning for the celebration of a lifetime. For this reason, our expert team of in-house planners are available to support your planning journey. Please call or email us for planning help! In addition, each couple receives a password protected, online portal for planning. This 24/7 tool is at your fingertips, ready for you to access up until 30 days prior to your wedding day. In your couple's portal, you'll be able to input all information including traditions, customs, toasts, parent dances, song selections for different parts of your day and of course, your request list. You'll also be able to input your "do not play" song selections. Once our planning team receives your completed documents, we then build our "blueprint" for your day. Your DJ will work from the blueprint, of course, with flexibility to make sure that our blueprint works well with your other vendor partners.
