For over ten years, Hitting The Mark Entertainment been entertaining crowds and performing as the Master of Ceremonies at hundreds at wedding receptions. We know how important your special day is, and go beyond just playing music to help make your reception one to remember. Wedding packages always include 5 or more hours of music and there is never a charge for setup or tear-down. Hitting The Mark Entertainment serves the Cedar Rapids, Iowa area, and we do travel!
Much More than Music
What do you remember about the last wedding reception you attended? Do you remember if you had a great time, or if you left early? Now think about the last wedding reception where you had a great time. The DJ at that reception most likely helped create an atmosphere that was comfortable, inviting, and had great time management.
Being able to play the right music at the right time is very important, but that is no the only thing you should think of when booking your DJ. Hitting the Mark Entertainment is a single operator DJ business and you know that the person you talk to on the phone or meet in person is who will be performing at your reception. We are a premier DJ company and take pride in creating a celebration that others will try to match.
Before the wedding
With over 10 years of wedding reception experience, Hitting The Mark Entertainment can help you plan your reception and give you ideas that we have learned to help keep your guests having fun. This includes tips about layout of the room, creating a schedule of events, and more! We will be sure to get a list of songs and types of music that you want to hear. And even more importantly, the songs that you don't want to hear. We try to keep the "cheesy" wedding songs out of our song lists and still be able to play songs that people know and enjoy.
Day of Details
The night of your reception we will take care of all of the Master of Ceremonies duties, such as making introductions, as well as make all of the announcements. Once it is time for the music to start, we realize that there is not a "cookie cutter" reception and each one is different. We know how to read the crowd to help make sure people stay on the dance floor.
Requests are taken all night long and by having all of our music in the digital format it is easy to find the song people want to hear, even if they don't exactly know who sang it or what the name is. We have all of the latest music as well as all of the oldies that get people up and dancing. If we don't have it the night of the wedding but somebody has it on their iPod or on a CD.
Hitting The Mark Entertainment knows that we are not the focal point of the night, so you will never see logos or hear advertising at your reception. We bring all the lights needed to light up the dance floor, and can bring extra lights to make more of a club-like atmosphere if requested. All of our sound and light equipment is professional quality and can handle the demands of a mobile disc jockey. We also offer uplighting, so if you want to tell the room what atmosphere you want it to have and not let it tell you, be sure to look at some of these uplighting pictures!
Hitting The Mark offers you experience, professional equipment, and individual services that will help set your reception apart from all of the others that you have been to. Contact us with any questions that you might have, and we will be glad to answer them for you!
