Your Wish Is Our Command

July 8, 2010 by Jess Barnes

One of the most important vendors a couple will select for their wedding day is the DJ, a sometimes overlooked detail that can mean the difference between a great time and a disaster. The only thing worse than a bad wedding singer is a DJ who lacks the necessary tact and sensitivity to their client’s taste in music and candor to make a reception all it should be.

I’m Jess Barnes and that’s why I created Black Tie, The Wedding DJ’s, a branch of Shake Rattle & Roll designed to offer couples a DJ who specializes in weddings. I discovered this business over twenty years ago when I filled in as a DJ for a friend’s sorority party in college. As a long time music lover, I decided to DJ and eventually started my company.

Today our DJ’s travel all over Oklahoma in varied venues from intimate parties in backyards and barns to large, uptown events in ultra-formal galas. With back up equipment and DJs on call, you never have to worry about a no show DJ or disastrous technical difficulties. Although we’re a large company, our DJs collaborate on each wedding to create an atmosphere that is unique to every reception. We hire DJs based on their ability to connect with clients so they always deliver exactly what our customer ordered.

While couples often hire a wedding coordinator, many do not. That’s why we’re prepared to handle the announcements and juggle the reception events with grace and style, carefully keeping the focus on the bride and groom while engaging their guests. We work with the facility manager to help welcome their guests, with the caterer to announce dining and cutting of the cake and with the photographer to capture those moments they’ll treasure forever. We include lighting to liven up the dance floor and décor lighting such as monogrammed initials for the floor or wall and “up lighting” to accent reception décor.

We listen carefully to our client’s request because we know couples want to play all the songs that celebrate the love and joy they share. No obnoxious jokes, no inappropriate music and no DJ’s “working the room” soliciting for that next event. We know the difference between enthusiastic, professional entertainment and bad taste.

At Shake Rattle & Roll and Black Tie DJ’s we invest our time and emotions into your event so that you get the most intimate and gratifying experience possible. Your wish is our command.
