about Me

Dan Carpenter

I’m Dan Carpenter, owner of D.C. Entertainment.  I started DJing because of my love of music.  I kept DJing because I thoroughly enjoy the spirit of the event; the reactions of the crowd, the smiles, the laughter, and the pure energy that comes from any gathering. There is little that I like more than to see a group of people truly enjoying themselves.  When it comes to your wedding day I believe the day should be about you, and that’s where the focus will be.  I will work with you beforehand to find out exactly what you want for your reception.  I will work with your other vendors to help coordinate the event so that you have as little to worry about as possible.  My job is to ensure that you and your guests enjoy themselves the best they possibly can.




What do you charge?

One of the first questions that many couples ask is “How much do you charge?” There are a few different factors that can affect the price, namely the type of event, location, length, day of the week, special add ons, etc. The best way to get an accurate quote is to schedule a meeting (including a free cup of coffee) where we can discuss your reception and if we’re a good fit for each other.


What do you mean by good fit for each other?

While some companies will simply ask you where and when you want them to be, it’s important to know if I’m really the best for your reception and if I can deliver what you are wanting. For example, if you’re wanting a heavy metal wedding, I’m probably not going to be your best option. It’s during that meeting that we can help you determine those things.


Do you have backup/emergency equipment?

No matter how careful someone is, no matter how much they take care of their system, electronics are electronics and they can fail. As a result, I make sure to have backup equipment on site at every event that I do. However I will add, because of careful planning and upkeep of my equipment, I’ve never had to make use of my backup equipment.


Will you be our DJ?

Because I am a single operator, and never subcontract my events, I will be the DJ/MC if you hire D.C. Entertainment for your event.

But what happens if you’re sick?

Simply put, the show goes on. Your day is not only important to you, it’s important to me. It’s true, people get sick, and while I take care of myself to avoid getting sick, it happens. However, I’ve also learned how to work through being sick and perform without it showing.


What if you’re REALLY sick or worse?

Oh, you mean really really really sick? Why didn’t you just say so? In the event that something happens where I’m hospitalized or even worse, I’ve worked hard to network with other quality DJs in the area. There is no guarantee any of them will be available, but after informing you of what’s going on, I will do everything I can find an adequate replacement. In the event that something extreme happens to me, I have directions for my wife to take care of finding someone. Lastly, in the event that something extreme happens to both her and I, I have my best friend as the person finding the backup (never can have too many plans in place).


How will you dress?

I believe it’s important to look your best. I will always be formally attired in a suit (unless otherwise requested).


Do you take requests?

​Absolutely! While I pride myself in my ability to read a crowd, having them specifically tell me what they want to hear makes it even easier. However, rest assured that any request will need to meet two conditions. First, someone should be able to dance to the request. Second, if there is a song that you don’t want played and someone requests, I won’t play it. After all, it is your wedding.​

Do you have another question you like answered?

​Don’t hesitate to call or email. I’d love to hear from you!
