Dan Lamaestra and Company - DJ / MC / Musicians
Elegant, tasteful, multi- talented, and experienced. The DJs and musicians at Musical DJs have been succesfully providing musical support for weddings and private events in the DC/MD/VA area since 1992.
We take your wedding very personally, and we want to spend the time to understand your expectations, especially since we know there is no "do over" when it comes to the most important and memorable day in your life. From lighting and professional sound systems to a very complete music library and backup equipment at every event, Musical DJs comes prepared to provide only the finest in musical entertainment for you and your guests.
In addition to being a full time Mobile DJ company, we fill a very specific niche in the wedding music market. If you want the luxury of live music at part of your wedding, yet also desire an experienced Disc Jockey with MC skills to guide the evening, we can create a package for you that will give you the best of both worlds, since four of our DJs are also working pro musicians.
Maybe you don't have the budget for a live band. A reputable and experienced DJ is often the answer, but where most DJ companies simply give you a DJ and a light show, our company provides the added twist of also providing live music for any portion of the event, performed by the DJ"S THEMSELVES, saving YOU money while still providing seasoned musical professionals to handle what is sometimes the most overlooked, yet the most crucial part of many events, which is the music!
Give us a call or email today to find out how we can make your wedding a roaring success!
DJ Gear - When we go out to an event, we always carry a backup of every critical component in the system, to insure that if a piece of gear does have an issue, you will not all of a sudden be without the musical support you are paying for.
