“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

“Sarah was amazing!
Our experience with Stylus was fantastic from the beginning to the end. Jane was really helpful in matching us with a DJ and transparent about pricing. Our DJ was Sarah van Buren and it was such a pleasure working with her! We had one video conference call to meet and go over our reception details about a month before our big day. For our first dance, we knew which song we wanted but couldn’t find a quality version, but Sarah found the perfect cover for us!
Our event was a cocktail style reception only, and on the day of, she was outstanding in every aspect. The two events for which we needed to coordinate with Sarah were our first dance and the speeches by our two friends. She was extremely flexible and gave us the option to move things during the night if we had to, based on when we and my friends were ready to go. I would highly recommend Stylus and Sarah for your events! Thanks again to Jane and Sarah!” —The Knot and Wedding Wire

“Katie Rose rocked the party!
Working with Jane at Stylus and Katie Rose as our dj was one of the best experiences for planning our wedding. Totally professional and up front about pricing from start to finish, there was nothing left unplanned. Our families had a great time and Katie got the whole party moving with a playlist that we collaborated on. Was great to work with them and highly recommended if you want a fun atmosphere you can count on!” -–Wedding Wire and The Knot

“Stylus was awesome! Both Jane Elizabeth and Alicia (our day-of DJ) were extremely responsive and on top of everything. Pricing is transparent — on their website! — and the calls we had to talk about needs and logistics were efficient and thorough. Alicia was probably THE most prompt responder out of all my vendors, and she was incredibly organized. She really cared about making sure she was on top of every detail for the night, including my wedding party/parents’ difficult to pronounce names, which she absolutely nailed. As for the wedding itself, she managed to get a group of people who really don’t dance to stay on the dance floor all night! We had so much fun!” —Wedding Wire and The Knot

“Valerie was a great DJ, she was able to play music for both the younger crowd and the older crowd. The dance floor was never empty, and our guests even complimented us on this, having never been to a wedding where that was the case. We shared our musical tastes with her before the event and she definitely delivered.” –Wedding Wire

Venue: Dumbo Loft – Brooklyn, NY
“We had a great experience with DJ Valerie. We were ambivalent about getting a DJ because we wanted to avoid the corny vibe we’ve seen so much at weddings, but Valerie was down to the earth, played great music, was totally accommodating to our tastes, and created an incredible soundtrack for our night! She was also perfect with timing about all the little things we had planned (first dance, toasts, we even wanted a certain song to come on at a certain time)- she was on it! Plus she adjusted her songs to the vibe of the party which was awesome. It was great to have a female DJ, but also just great to have someone so attuned to what we wanted. This DJ company is super professional and reliable and communication was wonderful and clear throughout. My one thing is that if you have someone using a microphone with a hearing aid, I would suggest they turn off their hearing aid first- we had microphone trouble with one of our toasts and I wish I had that tip before the event because the mics worked perfectly for everyone else. Thank you again Valerie and Jane for soundtracking such a wonderful night!” –Wedding Wire and The Knot

“Katie was wonderful to work with in planning our music and the day of the wedding! There were a lot of different musical tastes to take into consideration during the wedding and Katie helped curate a playlist that fit everyone’s interest and, most importantly, kept everyone dancing. She had a great system to suggest songs for the ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, and reception. We started the planning process with a discussion to figure out what we personally liked and what our families would enjoy so Katie was able to provide suggestions on music for all the different parts of the wedding. Everyone had a great time through the whole wedding and Katie helped capture the feeling we were going for. Thank you so much for everything!” —The Knot

“My wife and I were looking for an an alternative wedding DJ with an appreciation for new wave, disco, funk, and Motown – we got exactly that. We chose DJ Alicia Walter and so happy we did. SO much fun, incredibly personable, great style, and got everyone dancing – including herself 😉 All of our guests raved about her afterwards, some even said she was one of the highlights of the wedding! We highly recommend.” —The Knot

“My husband and I knew we weren’t looking for the typical Jersey wedding DJ and we were thrilled when we found Stylus. DJs who actually wanted to work
with us and listen to our tastes and requests. DJ Valerie was wonderful to work with throughout the planning process and extremely receptive to our
requests and vibe we were going for. Would highly suggest everything about Jane, Valerie and Stylus!” –Wedding Wire
“We had a wonderful time working with Jane and DJ Valerie for our wedding. From our first discussions with Jane, she kept us at ease knowing we were in good hands and she was able to match us with Valerie who fulfilled all of our requests and answered our numerous emails over the months leading up to the wedding. Valerie was a pleasure to work with from the beginning and completely understood and captured the vibe we were looking for at our wedding. Everything about Stylus is a 10!” –The Knot
