A wedding is just an EPIC ONE-NIGHT PARTY with those you love. Shouldn't your DJ absolutely CRUSH IT?
I'm Drew C. Peters, aka THE SONGSTRUCK DJ.
Nothing about my style, performance, or expertise is run-of-the-mill.
I'm avoiding ▾▾👇🏼▾▾
ⓧ Line dances, country or über-cliché hits
ⓧ Formulaic "wedding DJ" stereotypes
ⓧ Hosting games, telling jokes, excess 🎤
ⓧ Leaving your guests bored or in the dark
ⓧ Interrupting the dance floor to cut a cake
ⓧ Interrupting the party vibes at all.
I'm ALL about ▾▾👇🏼▾▾
✅ 💯% FIRE soundtrack, personalized to you
✅ Total live performance using real vinyl
✅ On-the-spot remixing & song mash-ups
✅ Custom music planning app & tools
✅ Tasteful MC-ing & day-of event direction
✅ Guests' song requests (if they're good 😆)

✅ Grandma getting down to Lil Jon. Yep.
✅ Meeting you over tacos & margaritas. . .
Good music, good vibes, and good people are what I live for. My life purpose is to rock crowds of all ages & backgrounds, and I am blessed to have built a strong word-of-mouth reputation doing exactly that; helping creative, music-loving couples throw the dopest party night ever for loved ones who've come together in support, and who may never all be in one place again.
We want to build something special that hits the deepest breadth of emotions for everyone in attendance, shows off your personality & music taste, and really turns up after dinner for a rowdy party feel. Whether you have many “traditional” wedding elements or none at all, I have performed and directed every type of wedding flow you can imagine—bohemian, semiformal, luxe, multicultural, indie, festival-style, you name it. Each wedding I do is unique.
You know when you hear a song you get goosebumps & chills down your spine? That's ASMR, or what I like to call being SONGSTRUCK. I want to elicit ecstatic states from you + your guests, whether it's pure joy, true surprise, hearty laughter, dance battles, late night shout-a-longs, unforgettable moves, and a songstruck feeling over + over. I want people to compliment you endlessly on the dope-ness of your party and how sore their feet are the next day.

LIVE PARTY MUSICIANS

CLUB | CONCERT | LOUNGE LIGHTING
💡 Club-Style Dance Party Lighting
Lighting significantly enhances mood, especially when the lighting interacts with the music and energy of a dance party. Let your guests get more into the party with Drew's intelligent dance lighting package that moves to the music and washes your dance floor in full-spectrum colors and patterns.
💡 Ambiance Lighting
Known as “uplighting”, full spectrum color options transform a space from boring white overhead lighting to mood-setting side lights that accentuate architecture + decór and set a much more intimate party atmosphere. Looks amazing in photos. Some colors include: burgundy, wine red, royal blue, purple, magenta, blush, champagne, warm white, orange, gold, etc.
OTHER PARTY ELEMENTS
📹 Film Your DANCE PARTY!
Usually photographers + videographers pack up about 30 minutes into the dance party, when people are JUST getting into it and settling into the rhythms. They miss some of the CRAZIEST party moments. Capture all dance offs, epic (and not so epic) dance moves, surprises, laughter, drunken singalongs, crowdsurfing, breakdancing, grandma getting down to twerk music, and more with a professional videographer there to capture one of the most regretfully-missed portions of the party. This is edited into a creative, energetic 1-2 minute HD “highlight video” you can share on social media!
💨 CO₂ Cannons + Confetti Launchers 🎉
Take those cold CO₂ air blasts you've seen in live club settings at the peak of a song, aim it and blast into or above your crowd as they go absolutely nuts. Leaves NO residue, feels awesome when your dancing gets HOT.
-OR- Shower your guests in colorful confetti (streamers, paper, foil, etc) for up to four exciting minutes throughout your event!
