1, 2 Step Entertainment is one of the most requested entertainment companies in the Metro Detroit area. Providing great entertainment for all of those "once in a lifetime occasions," our dedicated staff of entertainers ensures that your party experience is unique and never routine. From Weddings to Corporate Events, Mitzvahs, Sweet 16's, Holiday Parties, Fundraisers and beyond, no event is too big or too small, and every event is sure to be memorable.

We are the Entertainment Company that you have come to trust to make your day unforgettable. We take pride in our services and realize that the DJ is the most important part of the event. The DJ makes the party, and we always make it perfect!

REMEMBER that you get what you pay for, we have had some horror stories from brides who paid for an in-expensive DJ that canceled on them at the last minute, and others of how bad of a job they did. When looking for a DJ find a company with a good history and testimonials. Ask for samples of them in action and a video if they have it.

BELOW ARE 25 QUESTIONS TO ASK A DJ (our answers are written in for you)

1. Do you offer a written contract?
Yes, we offer a written contract which is given to you when decide to use 1, 2 Step Entertainment

2. Will you be the DJ at our wedding?
You meet with the person who is handling your wedding only. When you inquire with our company we select one of D.J.s who is available, and they are the only one to meet with you throughout the process.
3. May we meet with you in person before we sign a contract?
We love to meet with our clients before we sign contracts. We feel getting to put a face with a client's name, and getting to know their personalities is one of the most important thing. The more our DJs get to know you and your likes and dislikes, the more your wedding is going to be one you won't forget!
4. How long will you hold our date for us?
We hold the date for 1 month, as we know schedules are busy and we want to make sure that we get to meet in person, so you can see the demo reel of some of our weddings, and make sure that it is a good fit!
5. Do you work exclusively for this company?
Our DJs work exclusively for our company. We do not use DJs that work for various companies, so that we do not have them canceling last minute because they got another gig.
6. How long have you been a DJ and how many weddings have you done?
All of our Wedding DJs have a minimum of 10 years of experience, and have done more then 25 weddings a year.
7. How many other types of events do you do per year?
Our DJs categorized, we have Wedding Djs, Party DJs, Bar and Bat Mitzvah Djs, etc… We do this so that our DJs focus on their area of expertise, and are not bouncing around doing various gigs unless requested by their former client.

8. Do you perform for more than one event in a day?
Our DJs are only allowed to do one gig per day, so that they are entirely focused on only that event and are not scrambling around to get from one gig to the next.
9. What makes you different from your competitors?
We offer powered speakers instead of amped speakers, so that sound is clearer and you don't get any high pitched squeals or run the risk of the equipment blowing. We also offer various lighting packages and ambient lighting which allows us to take any room and make the walls light up in your wedding colors. We also have an online party planner so you can fill out your timeline, information, song requests, and do not play from the convince of your home. That way when you meet with our DJ you can go over everything and not walk away going "oh wait I forgot to tell them…."

10. Do you act as the "emcee" and make all of the announcements?
Our DJs are all comfortable with acting as the emcee, we also offer an emcee separate for those who want even more interaction with their guests, an emcee can get grandma out of the dance floor and dance with her, or do follow along dances, a DJ can do this as well but can leave the DJ for long periods of time where the emcee can.

11. What do you do to motivate the crowd if nobody is dancing?
We either switch up the music style, get on the microphone, or use of mix of both!

12. What if something happens to you and you can't make it to the wedding?
We always have a back-up DJ incase something unforeseen comes up. We make sure that they back-up DJ is familiar with the event, and has all requested music prepared 2 days before the wedding just incase.
13. Will we meet again before the wedding?
We meet with the bride and groom as many times as they want until the event, as we said before we love seeing you in person so that we can get to know you better.

14. Can we visit you at a performance?
Unfortunately, no. We like to keep our clients events personal and not use as a showcase of us. We do offer a demo reel where you can see our DJs in action from the comfort of your home.

15. How involved can we be in selecting music for our event?
The more involved you are the better, which is why we offer the online party planner. We want to play everything that you want to hear at your wedding.

That is up to you, some couples prefer no requests while other want requests. We always watch when requests come in that they are not on your DO NOT PLAY LIST.

Our DJs arrive 2-3 hours before your event to make sure that they are all set up and that everything is working correctly. The time depends on how elaborate your set-up is.

Our DJs attire typically is a suit, but they whatever you want them to wear! Our DJs have dressed in 1920's themed apparel, in Hawaiian wear, as this was how the couple had themed their wedding.

Wedding Reception

Overall Talent

Dustin was GREAT! He has a very pleasant personality and does his best to get the crowd involved, he even got out on the dance floor a few times himself to try to get everyone involved. The lighting and sound was perfect! He played all the songs we requested and if someone else requested a song he double checked with the bride and groom before playing it to make sure we were ok with it.The only thing that I could say could have been somewhat better was the projector that we rented from them was a little small on the wall and blurry. But I would definitely recommend them to anyone I know looking for a DJ. Thanks soo much for hosting a great night!

Overall Talent

Tom was VERY professional, friendly and so easy to work with. He worked with us from set-up to tear down, and even met with us prior to the event to go over every detail. The music he played kept our crowd happy and very entertained. We, at the Ronald McDonald House of Detroit, plan on hiring him for other gigs. We were very, very pleased with his DJ service and would HIGLY recommend him. Anyone who would like a verbal recommendation, feel free to reach me at the Ronald McDonald House of Detroit, 313-745-5909.
