welcome to IQ entertainment
Your #1 Party DJ Specialists
what to expect
Keeping the party going is about more than just music!
Play to the Crowd
Guests of all ages will have a blast!
Having two music specialists at your event gives us the knowledge and experience to ensure all ages in your crowd get "their music" to dance along. This is important for corporate parties and events where diverse crowds are a part of the mix.
Keeping it Tight
We'll help you keep your program moving along smoothly.
We are happy to assist you in reviewing your program and providing any guidance and suggestions to ensure your program doesn't drag. From expediting door prize and silent auction draws to executing a seamless buffet table line up - we know all the potential pitfalls that can put a damper on your event... and the tips and tricks to overcome them.
Fun and Games
Been tasked with organizing the company party?
Let's face it, most company parties and events are usually considered an obligation and an exercise in awkwardness with the end goal of getting out the door as soon as convenient.
If you're looking at adding elements to your event that... well... don't suck... then let us help. From our selfie station to games, activities or trivia we will provide you with a custom program specific to your company.
Whether its a small party of 50 or an event of 500, we can provide you with entertainment options that won't take a huge bite out of your budget.
So what does "Entertainment Experience" actually mean? We break it down into three stages.
1. Planning Services
We work with you to ensure your events are properly planned and executed. We assist in timing, entrances and scheduling to ensure the production elements give it a "WOW" factor.
2. Entertainment Services
Great music is the bare minimum of what you should expect from an event entertainment service. We work our butts off to entertain you and your guests, which helps create an experience that they actually remember - not just an event they felt obligated to attend and forget about by the time they get home. We want them telling everyone how much fun they had on the weekend at your party!
We talk a lot about "production" and believe that a truly great event doesn't just happen, it's produced. That's why we include all our production elements including:
- Selfie Station Photo Booth with props (included)
- Room Uplighting
- Fog Machine and Special Lighting for Rock Star reception entrances including BIG introduction
- Complete audio sound system including 1000 watt subwoofer (it's awesome).
- Two person team, one dedicated music coordinator and a separate Event Host and Coordinator.
3. Event Host
As your Event Host, we're there for your reception or program on the microphone to ensure your guests are warmed up and laughing, announcements are handled and introductions are made. If you have your own MC's we work with them to ensure sound checks and also to take some of the mundane tasks like coordinating tables for eating etc. are off their plate.
