We had our wedding 5/27/22 at the Carriage House in Galloway, NJ with about 120 people and absolutely loved having Sarah & Chris as our ceremony and cocktail hour musicians and reception DJ/MC. They reworked the faster song my husband showed me when he first told me he was in love with me and I was able to surprise him by walking down the aisle to it. They also had everyone on the dance floor until the very last song and were spot on with their timing. They were amazing to work with, responding to every question and concern ASAP. Their document layout also made it easy for someone who didn’t know the first thing about wedding planning to perfectly time the bouquet/garter toss and all dances. They’re down to earth and the most reasonable DJ/musicians for the perfect service they provide. Look no further for your perfect DJ/musicians!

Details: Wedding • 100 - 149 guests • 18 - 30 years old • 31 - 50 years old • 51 or older • Country • EDM / house • Pop • Rock • Oldies • 80s • Top 40 • Hip-hop / Rap • Banquet hall or ballroom • Fog machine • Lighting

Chris and Sarah were absolutely wonderful. When I started looking for music for our wedding I was worried that we’d have to book separately, someone for the ceremony and another to DJ the reception. I don’t know how I got so lucky to find Castles in the Sky because they so easily did both! We originally booked with them for our wedding before the Covid-19 pandemic and they graciously worked with us through two postponements. They were extremely responsive throughout the whole process and very organized and professional about planning our ceremony music and DJ details for our reception. On top of it all, Chris and Sarah were just so incredibly kind and easy to work with, I could not recommend them more!

Details: Wedding • 150 - 199 guests • 12 years old or younger • 13 - 17 years old • 18 - 30 years old • 31 - 50 years old • 51 or older • Rock • Oldies • Pop • Barn • MC services

Awesome on every level. Great services and great people. You won’t be disappointed if you choose Castles in the Sky. Sarah and Chris reached out immediately and sent over a Google doc we could both edit in order to organize exactly what we were wanting. Perfect execution and everyone had SO MUCH FUN! I hope to keep in touch with them forever. Couldn’t have asked for a better DJ. Very communicative. I’m not even sure what else to say—book them!

Details: Wedding • 100 - 149 guests • 31 - 50 years old • Latin • R&B / soul • 80s • Pop • Top 40 • Oldies • Hip-hop / Rap • Rock • Funk / disco • Banquet hall or ballroom • Lighting • MC services

Sarah and Chris were AMAZING at our wedding! We had a tight timeline to stick to for our wedding, and they DELIVERED. Their energy was huge, and all of our guests loved them. They spent time speaking and emailing with us before our wedding to understand exactly what our vision was, and again, they delivered! They both are incredibly kind and personable, and will definitely be our go to for any events we need DJs for!

Details: Wedding • 25 - 49 guests • 31 - 50 years old • 18 - 30 years old • Top 40 • Funk / disco • Hip-hop / Rap • R&B / soul • Pop • Banquet hall or ballroom • MC services

I was hosting a holiday party for my company in Bergen County, NJ and wanted a DJ who could also pull off a Karaoke party. I connected with Sarah from Castles in the Sky and she and her husband Chris delivered exactly what I wanted at a great price! Sarah is super responsive in the booking process, even with the administrative items I needed them to complete because this was a corporate event. (Insurance, Payment forms and Covid-protocols) The event itself was a huge hit and our group loved the music! It took a bit to get the karaoke going, and Sarah and Chris even stepped in to preform a few songs themselves and were amazing! Once we got going it was a blast a d we extended the party an extra hour from what we originally agreed to and Sarah and Chris were 100% accommodating. Highly recommend and will use again in the future.

Details: Corporate/office party • Premium (e.g., under 75 guests, corporate or wedding event, medium venue, professional equipment) • 31 - 50 years old • Pop/Top 40 • Rock • Hip hop / Rap • Holiday (e.g. Christmas)
