years, Footloose has performed at virtually every venue and reception
hall in the Wabash Valley. Since 1983, we have played at over 2,000 wedding
receptions; school dances; proms and post proms; college parties for ISU, SMWC,

We have an exceptional music library, with a diverse collection of danceable
songs from the past six decades to the latest hits of today. New music is added
each week as it is released. Because we have such an extensive collection, we
are able to fulfill requests for well known as well as rather obscure songs. We
invite our clients to prepare a request list of favorite songs you wish to have
played at your event. We can help you with song selections and can meet with
you personally to plan your event. We have all of the latest top 40, pop, hip
hop, rock, and country songs to augment the best music from the 1950s, 1960s,
1970s, 1980s, 1990s, and 2000s.
Weddings and Wedding Receptions
Wedding receptions are our specialty. Footloose DJ Entertainment has been serving the Wabash Valley and beyond
at wedding receptions and other events since 1983. A wedding reception is much
more than simply playing music for dancing. Over 2,100 satisfied clients
have given us the experience to provide you with exactly what you want for your
reception entertainment, customized to your tastes.
are many choices for your wedding reception entertainment, there are actually
only a select few in our area that are truly capable of properly performing at
an important event where there are no do-overs. With a wedding reception, it
has to be done right.
Music is an integral part of a successful and enjoyable party. The disc jockey
experts with Footloose will provide you with the proper mixture of music
to ensure your reception will be a fun-filled event. Wedding receptions are our
specialty, as we have virtually all types of music to choose from. If you and
your attending guests enjoy the latest top 40, dance, rock and roll, oldies
from 1950's to last year, country, and/or slow dance ballads, then we have the
music you'll want at your reception! You can choose the music you want played
at your reception -- you may choose to have only one or two different types of
music featured, or, if you're like most of our clients, you'll want a mixture
of music to please everyone from grandma and grandpa, to mom and dad, plus your
best friends from school. Our music library is comprised of the greatest hits
of all time. With tens of thousands of songs in the Footloose music
library, we're sure to have the music you'll want to hear. We even offer
reception favorites, including the Electric Slide, YMCA, Cha Cha Slide, the
Chicken Dance, Cupid Shuffle, and many more to maximize audience participation!
Footloose DJ Entertainment provides you with an experienced,
professional disc jockey to not only take requests at your reception, but to
also provide your guests with all of the necessary announcements, from the cake
cutting, to the garter and bouquet toss, to the announcement of the first
dance. Footloose disc jockeys dress appropriately for the occasion, so
you need not worry about a disc jockey that shows up in jeans and a t-shirt
(we've even heard horror stories of local DJs that wear baseball caps while
they work!). All Footloose disc jockeys are experienced public speakers.
We issue contracts which lock-in your date on our calendar and provide you with
a written guarantee. We are fully insured and have a great working relationship
with all area reception halls and photographers.

attended one of our events. It is very common for us to perform for one member
of a family and then subsequently perform for all of their family members. We
pride ourselves on making sure that you will be proud to have us perform on
your special day and your friends will want us to perform for them in the
future. Other clients turn to us after having seen the shortcomings of other
entertainment choices who failed or didn't know how to get everyone involved.

Exclusive Techniques that Footloose

wrong entertainment or choosing someone that is not qualified can negatively
affect many aspects of your reception. What happens if the DJ can't get people
to dance, or is only successful in getting the youngest guests to dance while
alienating all other age groups? Or they can only get the older guests involved
while alienating the younger guests? Brides and grooms should do their homework
and must realize that just because someone is a DJ, it does not mean that they
are capable of performing for you on such an important day. Bad entertainment
can simply ruin your reception. If the DJ does not know what is appropriate for
dinner music the entire party will be off to a bad start, and the end result
can mean that your guests won't be in a festive mood for the hours that follow.
A poorly qualified DJ can cause your party to end much earlier than you
expected, which actually costs you money. For most, the perfect wedding is
something that you've dreamed of for a long time and you've invested a lot of
time and money planning. If your guests leave early, that is a direct
reflection on you. Footloose
understands our role in representing you and realizes the importance of your
exploring entertainment options, many brides and grooms enter the process with
the assumption that finding a DJ is as simple as making a couple of phone calls
until they feel that they've found the lowest price that they can find. The
average DJ in the Wabash Valley charges about $75.00 to around $100.00 per
hour. But you should ask yourself if you will be satisfied with having simply "average" entertainment. Chances are, you didn't keep shopping until you found
the lowest price for a wedding band or dress, let alone the lowest price for
food or a location to host your reception. Footloose
does not charge an "average" or below "average" price for our services. And we
won't deliver a performance that is simply "average".

growing trend is for brides and grooms to add their own personal touch to the
ceremony by choosing a favorite song or musical piece, even if it's not

photographs, we can offer solutions to mic your wedding ceremony.
