Thanks for contacting us about your event!
District Remix is a boutique entertainment company offering professional, Open-Format DJs who work to be a reflection of your musical style. We're excited to explore your ideas that will guide us in the creation of a custom soundtrack that embraces your vision.
If you're searching for the perfect DJ that brings tremendous value, creativity, mixing, planning, experience, and will actually be proactive and coordinate your event (or work alongside your hired wedding planner) ...we're the company for you!
If you're purely seeking someone to play music with no creativity at the lowest cost, we're probably not the best option for your entertainment.
We typically service the Baltimore, Annapolis, Eastern Shore, and Washington D.C. metro areas, as well as traveling around the country and worldwide.
Connect with one of our DJs during your real-time music consultation at our studio office. Virtual demonstrations are available for clients out-of-state or on-the-go.
If you are in a time crunch, check out our sample videos below.

WHAT WE DO
We aren't typical deejays, but elegant mixers that make your event the party that everyone raves about. We don't specialize in one style of music, we specialize in YOUR style of music.
We have a wide range of Open Format DJs that can accommodate your musical tastes no matter what the type.
WHY CHOOSE US?
Our philosophy is simple: provide the best possible music on quality sound equipment to make sure you have the most memorable party of your life. Establishing a comfort and confidence level with your DJ is key. Check out some of our reviews below!
WHAT ABOUT THE FLIPSIDE?
We wish we had a dollar for every time a guest came up to us at a wedding to say, "I wish I would have known about you when I had my wedding... our DJ was terrible..."
We get it.
There aren't many times when you have the opportunity to hire a DJ in life, and most people just don’t have any idea what's involved or more importantly, what’s at stake.
If you're considering a DJ solely on price, perhaps what your fiancée paid for their college party DJ, or your co-worker or best friend paid a friend of a friend, then you're taking a gamble on one of the most impactful things at your party. If the flowers are beautiful and the food is incredible at your wedding but the DJ is less than stellar, or worse yet, terrible, what do you think your guests will remember?
The average price for a wedding DJ in the MD/DC/PA/VA area is $1625 (calculated from the top 50 DJs/companies in the area ranging from $850 to $3000). The more experienced, professional, and reliable DJs are usually priced above that average rate because they typically provide an above-average experience. By definition, a DJ who charges less than the "average" rate is, by default, below average.
Given the impact the DJ has on your event, do you want someone who is below-average on your wedding team? Why would you risk diminishing all the other details you worked and paid for to save a couple of hundred dollars on your DJ? If you are hiring on price alone, we’re probably not the right fit for you. We’ll wish you luck (and hope you won’t need it) and admire your strong tolerance to risk on your wedding day.
WHAT DO YOU CHARGE?
Our wedding rates range between $1600 and $3000.
Depending on the amount of performance time needed (for most weddings, 4-6 hours), we will provide an accurate quote once we have a few event details.
For corporate and other private events, rates start at $1200 (for 4 hours).
The first hour of travel to and from your venue from our office in Columbia, Maryland is always included.
Past the first hour, an additional $100 per hour of travel is added. If we exceed 150 miles in travel to your venue, we ask that you provide us with overnight accommodations.
We are an investment; one of the few things that your guests will remember and be aware of is how well the music is managed and performed. Demand for our DJs limits them to 40-50 weddings each a year.
The average DJ cost nationally for 4 hours is $1000, according to WeddingWire, with the average in the DC/Baltimore region being $1600. We aren't your average DJ and we'd love to show you the difference!
A Professional Wedding Entertainment company will normally invest 20 to 30 hours to your special event but it may appear that you are only paying for "4 hours".
"The best price is not always the best deal, especially when planning an event."
HOW ARE YOU DIFFERENT?
We encourage you see what we offer, how we mix and blend music around your style(s) and what we are capable of creating for you before you sign a contract. Most DJs will offer to chat for a few minutes at a coffee shop, then present a contract. Do you know how they spin music? We want you to know exactly who and what you are getting and investing in:
*How's their customer service?
*Does your performer DJ, as well as MC?
*How much experience do they have?
*Are you able to see/hear them play before the actual wedding?
*Do they have an office or studio where you can meet to discuss your event and showcase a demonstration?
*Can you find them on the preferred vendor and venue lists?
*Do they have insurance?
*What brand(s) of equipment do they use?
AND...when your venue coordinator or planner referred your DJ personally to you (saying you need to talk to them), what does that tell you?
You can always ask your other vendors: whom would they hire for their own wedding?
We feel that a couple's wedding entertainment should be held in the same regard as the photographer and caterer, for instance. Taste the food, view the photos...experience the product before making the commitment =)
SOME WEDDING STATISTICS
WHERE HAVE YOU PLAYED?
CAN WE MEET?
Absolutely, we can meet in person at our office, located in Columbia, MD, or video chat online (Skype, Google Hangouts, etc). If we do meet in person or online, we can do a customized demonstration of your event, giving you a live preview of what your event will be like!
HOW DO WE BOOK YOU?
HOW DO WE PLAN?
HOW DO WE DJ?
Want to see how our DJs spin? Take a look at our performers mix-videos below! We've also added longer samples of their work from our MixCloud.
The songs in these videos are purposefully shortened for demonstration purposes. We want to give you an idea of HOW we mix. We will totally play any songs/genres that you are really into (we aren't just going to play club music).
We aren't fade-in, fade-out DJs!

If you are looking to create a different look in your event space, uplighting is the easiest way to do it!
We utilize wireless, battery-powered uplights by Chauvet.
With over 60 stock colors to choose from, and options to create custom colors and remote control, we'll have your event space looking just the way you want!
Uplighting can create a wonderfully warm atmosphere to any room, and also gives you a more dynamic look to your reception and party photos!
Check out the looks below! For color options, check out all of them in the link here.
Our uplighting is elegant. No wires or cheap-looking fixtures that show multiple LEDs; just a small footprint that can be placed anywhere (check the column of the photo).

DECIDING ON A FLOOR PLAN?
It allows all the guests to gather together in the center. With the DJ on the dance floor, they can really connect with the energy of the crowd.
The DJ would have to blast the sound through all of the tables, resulting in a hollow sound on the dance floor. Plus, the DJ can't connect to the vibe on the floor!
We are more than happy to refer you to wonderful vendors that we work with! Let us know what you need and we'll send you in the right direction :)
We can't wait to rock your event!
