A Note From Our Owner
Welcome to The Mid Atlantic Professional DJ Association... the home of dynamic DJ entertainment! For 30+ years, we have been a family owned company providing professional DJ services, lighting, visual effects, karaoke & more. We are the proven leader in DJ entertainment. Read Our Reviews and see what our clients say about us!
In 1986, I started this company as a “one man show", with just a few events on the schedule. I was a nervous teenager providing the music for a church fashion show. As the company grew, we needed more DJ talent. After meeting Christine Lemke (DJ Krissy) in 1997, we established the area's first official DJ training school. We trained dozens of aspiring students, with only the top students emerging into our roster of talent. From that point, we evolved into a full time professional DJ service having performed at more than 14,000 events, in front of 2,000,000+ guests. But it’s not the number of events performed that sets us apart. We consider every event, a unique opportunity to provide each client and their guests with the event of a lifetime. Our experience and commitment to professionalism are evident from your first inquiry through the final song selection of your event.
Our staff cares about the success of each event. Whether it's a backyard birthday party, a 200 guest wedding celebration or a high school Homecoming with 1,000 students, our commitment to producing the perfect event is our standard. Your event deserves nothing less.
We look forward to hearing from you about your event. Contact us today and we will gladly answer your questions, discuss our services and provide you with the blueprint for a successful event!

•How Far In Advance Should We Book Our Event?
If you know your date and some basic details about your event, we'd like to hear from you! Our busiest months are April - October. While most of our clients book months in advance, we can often accommodate your event with just a few weeks notice.
•What Is The Cost Of Your Service?
Our cost is determined by the type of entertainment you'd like us to create. An intimate backyard dinner party is priced differently than a high school Homecoming with 1,000 students. While our pricing is not the cheapest, we are not the most expensive DJ service either. Our quality & professionalism, however, is the best.
•How Much Experience Do Your DJs Have?
The Mid Atlantic Professional DJ Association will always staff your event with a professionally trained, experienced DJ. Our dynamic DJ entertainers average no less than 10 years experience each. We bring this experience to each event. We will never send a rookie DJ to your event.
•What Type Of Equipment Do You Use?
For each event, we only use all professional sound & lighting equipment. Your event is too important for us to treat it any other way. We use the following brands of equipment exclusively:
Laptops - MacBook Pro & Air | Software - Virtual DJ & Serato
Controllers - Numark & Pioneer | Pro Sound Mixers - Mackie
Speakers - JBL Pro | Microphones - Sennheiser & Shure
Lighting - Chauvet & American DJ | Amplifiers - QSC

•What Is Your Back-Up Policy?
In our 30+ years of business, we have never cancelled a booked event. We have back-up equipment & back-up DJ talent in place so that we don't let you down.

We believe in having a back up plan in place so your event will go on as scheduled.
