a dance party where everyone, no matter their tastes, feels satisfied.

We found DJ Jane of Stylus Entertainment via Offbeat Bride and were immediately drawn to the fact that she had worked with couples with more alternative music tastes, who weren’t huge fans of being in the spotlight, of grand entrances and air horns. We also liked the fact that she was a DJ outside of the wedding scene, being the host of the tainted love 80s dance party at the Bell House in Brooklyn. We have a lot of family who love 80s music, so this was a huge plus. From the very beginning, Jane was a consummate professional: prompt and responsive in communication, very organized, and perhaps most unique, she was interested in getting to know us as a couple, in our musical tastes, in our reasoning behind certain decisions, such as having a secular ceremony, in what our guests were like. Prior to our wedding, we provided a detailed spreadsheet of song requests from our guests, which included Bollywood tunes, Italian folk music, top 40 tunes, and music requests from ourselves that included indie rock, electronic pop, classic disco. Jane drew from this list for both dinner and the actual dancing, and also played music, inspired by our suggestions, that fit in so well with the sound we and our guests were looking for. We really appreciated her ability to handle transitions and the mood of the crowd. Music throughout our reception transitioned smoothly from one track to another, dinner music allowed for conversation to happen comfortably, music during the dancing periods featured a good mix of upbeat with more mellow. We really appreciated the absence of unnecessary banter and forced hyping of the crowd. Jane let the music and the flow of one track into the next speak for itself, and struck a great balance between responding to the mood of the crowd, but also gently activating them with more energizing tunes. Afterwards, Jane created a playlist for us of the entire tracklist of our wedding! Highly recommend DJ Jane if you want more than a generic pop sound to your wedding, if you want the feel of a dance party where everyone, no matter their tastes, feels satisfied. ” —Wedding Wire and The Knot
