After being recommended by a friend, we put our trust in Charles to DJ our wedding this fall and couldn't be happier with our decision. He took the time prior to our wedding day to review a questionnaire to understand our audience, take our suggestions and requests, and handled our last minute changes like a pro. The dance floor was full all night and our guests had an amazing time. He arrived early to set up all of his equipment, worked extremely well with our other vendors and took the stress of making sure the night went according to plan off our plate. We can't recommend Charles enough!

Amazing is an understatement, Beam Entertainment went above and beyond for our wedding! The entire time leading up to the wedding he was right there for every question, he responded back very timely, and he was professional yet personal! The day of the wedding he was right there for anything we needed, he kept the crowd going, and he was such a blast! If you are looking for a DJ for any sort of event, We HIGHLY recommend Beam Entertainment!😁

I originally had just wanted one of our friends with a laptop to “dj” our wedding, but we couldn’t think of any one of our friends that we could trust to do the job. So we turned to a stranger 😂 We could not have made a better decision, by the end of the night, Charles did not feel like a stranger, but rather a trusted friend. He kept us on track, updated us on what he needed and rolled with us making changes through the night. At the end of the night, when the last guests were leaving, he was playing really cute songs and I dragged my husband to the dance floor, just the two of us, slow dancing until midnight. It was one of my favorite parts of our whole day and I will cherish that memory forever 🤍🖤 thank you so much Charles!!

Are you getting married, or have a bar mitzvah, sweet 16, a birthday party or any other occasion where you might want people to dance and have AN AMAZING TIME? Well, Charles is your guy. We made the decision to hire Charles for our wedding within minutes of talking to him for the first time. What sold Charles and his services to us was his attitude and personality. We had a fusion wedding that mixed Punjabi culture with Catholic traditions in the middle of nowhere WI. Charles saw this as an opportunity and came prepared with music that represented both our cultures and I could not have asked for more. He went above and beyond to make sure that our ceremony and reception went without a hitch (and that included him having to set up twice). It was very easy to work with him to create custom mixes that we used to make our entry for our ceremony. Charles knows how to read a room and keep people entertained. He felt less like a vendor but more like a friend who made our special day even more special with his DJ skills and his personality. So if you are looking for someone who is not just someone playing songs off a playlist, but is a real DJ who knows what they are doing, values quality, and is committed to his art, then Charles is the person you need to hire.

I would highly recommend Charles to anyone looking for a DJ. He is extremely personable and easy to work with. There’s a reason he’s a 5 star DJ and is truly top notch at what he does. He helped me create a personalized mother-son track that really made for a special moment for not only my mother but all of the guests in attendance. Thanks Charles

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Understand the market, availability and how subcontracting works. My business model is a single operation, your special event. However, most competitors are multi-operational. They book several discounted weddings on your day to maximize their profit margin. You will save money, however they also subcontract amateurs to meet your budget. On average, the demand is 35,000 weddings a year per state. Having served on the Board of Directors for several years, I can assure you the supply in the Midwest Association of Professional Disc Jockeys (Metro - North West Chapter) is only a few hundred. With only 26 Saturdays available in season (May - October), that's more than approximately 1,300 weddings on the same day as your event! SO BEWARE, 3 out of every 4 vendors are potentially part-time. That's a 75% chance that you will be assigned the second, third, or even 10th DJ still available, often just a week before your event. Choose to be that 1 out of 4 wedding by booking 12 - 24 months in advance with an experienced owner. You will invest a little more, however I have a 96% customer satisfaction rating. I'm also ranked in the Top 3% in the nation. In addition, I was awarded the #1 service provider within a 150 mile radius of Minneapolis by Thumbtack customers! This quality package is all inclusive with a $15,000 production value. Most importantly, you have a 24 year experienced veteran, not a subcontractor who is looking for work after no one has hired them.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I served a two-year term on the Board of Directors of the Midwest Association of Professional Disc Jockeys. I was also a key note speaker, teaching seminars & attending regional trade shows and national conventions to network and educate. I stay current with trends and strive to continuously improve.
