Here’s what our best friends say
BEST FRIENDS = PAST CLIENTS
SAMANTHA AND MAX BEVELL
House DJ St. Louis did an INCREDIBLE job at not only playing the best music, but running the entire night! I don’t know what I would have done without Cole & Lauryn. They were both so kind and genuine throughout our entire experience with them and I would recommend them 100%!
SAM AND ADAM LYONS
I can’t say enough about the crew at House DJ. By the end of the process, we felt more like family, and when the wedding came, the team had everything together, coordinated it all, and threw the most amazing party. Would recommend 10/10!
BRITTANY AND VINCE FARINELLA
Our dance floor was jam packed the entire evening! I had multiple people come up to me to compliment how great the music was and how much they liked the DJ. Cole made sure the evening ran smoothly and was great at communicating with us throughout the night. I would highly recommend House DJ Services over and over again.
good at this Wedding thing
YOUR WEDDING IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT DAYS OF YOUR LIFE
You spend money on food, decorations, cute little napkins with your names on it, and then you pay photographers and videographers to document it. Now, imagine spending months planning, thousands (or tens of thousands) of dollars, and anticipation. Then, the day comes, and your music sucks. No one wants to dance, the energy is gone, and the sound is horrible.
That’s where we come in: We don’t only provide a DJ service. Our entertainers are also trained wedding coordinators. Our DJs are trained to run the entire reception from start to finish. Cole and Lauryn have worked in every aspect of the wedding industry, and we intimately know the needs of each type of vendor. We work every second we are at your wedding to make sure every need of every vendor is met. We coordinate between you and your wedding vendors, we ensure everyone is where they need to be, and if you have a problem with anything, let us handle it. What wedding DJ company does that?
Furthermore, you’ll love the energy we bring. Starting before anyone enters, we set the mood. With wireless uplighting and a carefully tailored and curated playlist, the room is ready for guests to enter. Once they do, the tempo and style will build throughout the prelude and cocktail hour, moving into the reception and building up to the crescendo, the Grand entrance. Once you enter, we handle all announcements and become friends with your guests, relaxing anxieties and bringing an energy to the room that only we could.
Finally, once we kick it over to dance, we party until the night is over. Our DJs are trained musically and taught to mix genre and tempo, so that we can bring people together on the dance floor without them even realizing it. We’ll profile the crowd and play songs that will bring them back to their party years, and we’ll keep going until the end of the night.
THE ENERGY IS HIGH, YOUR GUESTS ARE EXHAUSTED, AND YOU JUST HAD THE MOST INCREDIBLE DAY OF YOUR LIFE.
More than music
SURE, YOU COULD JUST HIRE US FOR OUR WEDDING AND MUSICAL ABILITIES, BUT…
More than “professionally running the wedding”, “Keeping everyone entertained”, and “entertaining guests”, we have built an incredible culture around House DJ. More than music, we offer free meetings, assistance, and planning help to any of our brides. We have done this more than you have (hopefully), and we probably know more about how to plan a wedding. So. let us help. If you need assistance or have a question, you have our personal cell number. Send us a text, give us a call. You won’t have a massive phone tree, or press “1” for customer service. You speak directly to us.
SERVICE WITH A SMILE—AND A SPEAKER—AND A MIXER—AND A MICROPHONE—AND MUSIC.
When you hire a company for your wedding, you want to hire a company you feel good about hiring. One of our criteria for hiring a DJ is not that someone has DJ’d before. We hire people who we think have good personalities and servants’ hearts. We feel as though you deserve more than music. It is not unusual for us to help clean at the end of the night. It isn’t unusual for us to help setup decor if needed. When a House DJ is at your wedding, we truly are capable of helping with anything necessary.
NOT TO BRAG, BUT WE DO A LOT OF EVENTS FOR FREE
We’ve been so blessed in our journey by some incredible people, and we feel that it is necessary to give back. For that reason, we do a bunch of events for some no-name charities, including the Special Olympics of Missouri and the Epilepsy Foundation (“no-name” was heavy on the sarcasm). We have been so blessed and honored to be been able to serve these two amazing organizations in 2017 and 2018, and we hope to continue serving. Because of these, we’ve also been able to perform at some really neat places (most notably Lambert International Airport and the Gateway Grizzlies’ Ballpark.)
“WELL YEAH, BUT WHAT DO I GET?”
Cool stuff, right? But what do you get out of it? Well, we’ve got some cool stuff for you too. To start, we have a super cool MERCH section on our website where you can purchase some original House DJ designs. For our clients, we sell everything at cost. Additional to the custom designs relating to engaged life, at the conclusion of each year, we design a shirt and hoodie with the name of every couple and event on the back in the style of a band tour. It’s so much fun for us to design, and our couples absolutely love it.
Meet the group
WE THINK WE’RE KINDA COOL
Cole is the co-owner and head-DJ of House DJ St. Louis. He manages bookings, client communication, equipment, and other basic tasks. Cole is responsible for training and developing all of our incredible talent in areas of voice, professionalism, musicality, style, and event structure. If you book with us early enough, there is a solid chance that Cole will be your DJ. His musical talent and funky sense of style make him a hit at every party. Also, Cole is the de-facto expert on weddings and coordination.
As a DJ, Cole brings his years of musical expertise into the fold with blends, transitions, and extensive knowledge of rhythm and music theory. Definitely good at keeping it going!
Lauryn is the co-owner of House DJ St. Louis, and Cole’s wife. Lauryn has been in the mix and filling in with anything that is needed. She is our “swiss-army knife” in regard to utility (and also, she might cut you). Oftentimes, Lauryn runs flight between the DJs during events and keeps all of the boys in line.
She runs circles around the boys, to be honest.
Drew is our longest-running DJ and one of our proudest. We met Drew as a REALTOR and a long-time friend. When we started growing House DJ into multiple systems, we knew that Drew would be a good fit—and we weren’t wrong. To date, Drew has completed over 80 weddings, 100 events, and is scheduled to clear many more every year.
Drew is an absolute professional in the field and in his career. If you want someone who can keep a party going, run your event, and maintain professionalism, Drew is your guy.
Chris was a unique grab for us. If you’ve been around for a minute, you know that we won’t hire someone who is a DJ already. Well, we didn’t.
…but we did grab someone who is an incredible wedding vendor. We met Chris at the beginning of the year in 2018, and met him at a wedding. Chris was (and still is) running a single-op videography service, and knows the structure of weddings. At the wedding, we got to chat with Chris for a good portion of the night and learned about his family, his musical talents, and his wedding experience. Chris is a musician, a wedding pro, and a family man. Chris is available for booking for the 2019 wedding season!
Jacoby is a big dude, but his personality it what will grab your attention. Always smiling from ear-to-ear, always THE LIFE of the party, Jacoby is probably the most outgoing DJ on our roster. This dude is not above carrying a conversation with everyone who locks eyes, and he also has been known to drop splits on the dance floor.
If you are looking for someone that your guests will talk about for years to come, Jacoby is your man.
The host of hosts, Ken is an absolute rockstar. Ken is a very outgoing, and very thoughtful guy, and one who you need to have at your wedding. Ken’s background comes from two very important industries. Early in his professional career, Ken had a two year stint as a standup comedian. Then, Ken climbed his way up the ladder in the food service industry, and became a general manager for Panera and Starbucks, keeping up with the pace of the area’s busiest restaurants and mastering the art of service. If you want to be served and waited on hand-and-foot, Ken is the guy for your big day.
