We hired Ash to DJ (and MC) our Upper East Side wedding reception in July, and we couldn't have asked for a better night. We met up beforehand to discuss details and immediately fell in love with her charm and sass -- and, most importantly, her impeccable attention to musical detail! She made sure we had the best song-and-sound quality possible, and I couldn't believe how many compliments we got on her excellent music-mixing. We danced all night (and the dancing continued after my groom and I departed, so I hear!) Don't hesitate to hire -- she's the best.Sep 22, 2015VerifiedA•Ball Music's reply
Awww Sara, I appreciate this so much, and I especially appreciate compliments in the musicianship/mixing department - you and Jon know your stuff, and it was such a pleasure to work with you both. Hope we cross paths again in the not so distant future! :)
Ashley was the perfect DJ for our wedding. She met with my future husband and me before the wedding to get to know us better and to better understand our goals for the music at our wedding. She really understood what we were looking for. She worked closely with us to make sure we were on the same page for all the different components of the day: ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, and dancing. Ashley was a pleasure to work with and truly made our day even more special! I would highly recommend her!!!Aug 20, 2015VerifiedA•Ball Music's reply
Thank you so much for your kind words, Amanda - it was so much fun getting to know you and your family, and Maritime Parc is a beautiful venue. Hope you've been having a great summer!
Ashley did a great job. She knew exactly what I wanted and what I had expected. She was extremely nice and professional. Since there were a lot of kids at my wedding, I was happy to see she didn't mind taking requests. Thank you for all the fun Ashley!Jul 15, 2015VerifiedA•Ball Music's reply
Thank you so much for your kind words, Julie - you and Peter were extremely easy to work with and the reception was so much fun!!!
From the moment we met Ashley, we knew we were in good hands for our wedding. She took the time to get to know us and understand what we were looking for in a DJ. She was very collaborative and proactive in working with us to find just the right songs for each part of our wedding ceremony & reception. On the big day, everything went off without a hitch. She created exactly the vibe we were going for. People were shaking their booties until the house lights went on! Ashley is a pleasure to work with and we'd recommend her for your next event.Jun 28, 2015VerifiedA•Ball Music's reply

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Pricing for DJs is difficult (impossible) to standardize, and can be frustratingly non-transparent for potential clients. My range for weddings is $995 - $1595, which can go either way depending on circumstances of the event (such as equipment needs or travel). For other events, best bet is to ask! If what you're able to afford is doable for me, I will make it work. If not, I will happily offer alternatives.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?First step is to confirm availability for all particulars (date, time, location), confirm budget, sign a contract, and then get to work on making your event sound amazing.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Like most students of my generation, I spent waaay too much money on post-secondary education. Hence, I have all sorts of fun skills to draw upon for DJing! I graduated summa cum laude from Arizona State University's School of Music in Music Performance, and also have a diploma in Theatre Arts (Musical Theatre) from Grant MacEwan University in Edmonton, Alberta. In New York City, I studied DJing and Electronic Music Production at Dubspot under DJ op! and DJ Reborn, and with The Official at Rock and Soul.
