Private Event Starting Price: -$1000 For private parties, events, fundraisers, etc. Full pricing depends on the event details (date, location, timeframe, services requested). For frequently asked questions, scroll down below my bio. About Me: I’ve been making memorable experiences for 17 years; where I shine is matching the music to your vibe while also reading the room, using real DJ transitions to keep the dance floor energy up, working with vendors to keep the event running smoothly, interacting with the crowd, and customizing what I do for each client to create an authentic celebration that brings you and your guests together. Whether it's a wedding, corporate event, or private party; I've got you covered. This might not be the 500th event that you've planned, but it is for me and I use my experience as a top entertainment professional to help you every step of the way; from your first message, to the last song of the night. I'm an outgoing & kind person that genuinely loves bringing people together through music. I've performed nationwide as a professional entertainer for events small to large and I bring my wealth of music entertainment knowledge to all types of events nationwide. Event planning: Making decisions can get overwhelming; to make things easier I have a simple & powerful planning app for you to easily keep track of your music preferences/requests, timeline, & details. Even your guests can make their own song requests in advance! Below are my most frequently asked questions: Q: Can I pick the music for my wedding/event? A: Yes! You can be as specific or open as you'd like about your music preferences. I'm here to make this perfect for what you and your guests like. Q: How do I give you music I like and wedding details? A: I have an amazing app called Vibo that lets you easily import music from your own playlists (Spotify, Apple, Amazon, Youtube), make specific song requests, view my recommended playlists to get ideas, and fill in wedding info so it's all in one place. Plus you can even invite your guests to make song requests on the app before the wedding. Q: What kind of sound & lighting do you use? A: Good sound equipment makes people want to dance more and I use top-quality sound equipment from RCF that immerses you in sound at any volume; you've haven't heard music sound this good before! For lighting I use modern tube/bar lights that are wireless so they can be placed anywhere, they're bright enough to make a party atmosphere but unlike traditional lighting they don't blind people or ruin the photos during the event. I also offer optional room up-lighting to enhance the look of any venue by coloring the walls with colored light. I have examples of these in my profile "Photos & Videos" section. Q: Do you offer ceremony services? A: Yes! I offer DJ music for your songs. I use a wireless speaker that can be placed anywhere, and I use wireless lapel microphones for the officiant, and a wireless mini microphone on a stand for couples vows and any readings/speeches. My speakers are also waterproof, I'm not afraid of a little rain! Q: Do you provide a wireless microphone for toasts/speeches? A: Yes! I always setup a wireless microphone to use for any toasts/speeches. Q: What areas will you travel too? A: I travel all over the country, I charge a travel fee for events beyond 100 miles from Raleigh. Contact me your wedding location for a full price quote. Q: What is your DJ style? A: I customize the music to match the client and the event. I'm completely comfortable with a wide variety of music; Pop, Rap/Hip-Hop, Rock, EDM, Country, Latin, R&B, Motown, Funk, modern hits, early 2000's, 90's, 80's, 70's, etc. When it's dance time I do real DJ transitions and read the crowd to know how short/long to play each song, this keeps the dance floor energy up and fun the entire night. You deserve more than a budget Spotify DJ that doesn't care if your guests leave and the dance floor is empty. I'm also well versed in non-dance music for the times when you need good music at a non-dance energy for cocktail hour, dinner, or a welcome party. I can add some club-specific DJ styles to the event music if it's requested; such as Techno, Dub, Trap, House, etc. but I do not perform these club styles exclusively for events. Q: What is the booking process like? A: I'll need your date & location, then give you a pricing quote, and answer any questions you have. If you'd like to move forward with booking I'll send you a contract to look over and e-sign. Then a 50% deposit is due within 30 days, I accept most major forms of payment like credit card, Zelle, Venmo, Paypal, Cash App, and a mailed check. After I received the deposit you're all set! I'll reach out to setup a time to meet you on a video call to start getting a feel on your wedding vibe and show you how my planning app is going to make wedding planning a lot easier! Q: What is room up-lighting? A: Room Up-lighting is a set of wireless lights that are placed on the floor next to the walls/beams of a venue and shoot a soft beam of colored light up the wall/beam. I control these lights with a remote control and can change them from a soft color during dinner and then changing along with the music colors during dancing. This is a great and inexpensive way to decorate a venue and really makes the room feel like a party. I have examples of these in my profile "Photos & Videos" section. Feel free to message me for a quote or with any questions you may have, I'm always happy to talk about your event. Cheers, -Marty Nightengale Scene Magazine says: “Charming, outgoing, bringing the party while exuding high energy & a contagious vibe; Marty is always a crowd pleaser!”

20 out of 10!!! Marty was the best!!! We have been to a few weddings and really thought that on our wedding day we want someone who looks like he is happy doing what he is doing, we searched and looked on so many DJs in the area and Marty really stood out!!! We wanted live music for our first dance and he delivered!!! From the planning stage to the wedding day he really communicated well!! We couldn’t have asked for more. Thank you for the energy Marty and for making our wedding night the best party we have been to. Thank you for the great music selection and for keeping our guests in the dance floor. If you need someone who can make your crowd dance, who gives off positive energy and who can cope up on same day changes, Marty is the guy you need! Too bad we can’t post some videos on the review.

Marty was incredible to work with for our wedding and reception. He was super responsive and helpful throughout the planning process. He was unfamiliar with our venue and made a special trip to meet with us in person to get a plan for the day. We had him set up a sound system for our wedding ceremony and sound and lighting for the reception. He was professional and a very good MC for the evening. We had some issues with the venue (none of it had anything to do with Marty) but he was able to roll super smoothly and keep the night going strong. We can't recommend Marty enough!
