The 13 Best Calgary Wedding DJs

Weddings are filled with sincere and tender professions of love as well as fun and memorable moments. So, if you want to keep your wedding lively, the best Calgary wedding DJ should be a part of your wedding team.

That’s why we’ve gone ahead and compiled a list of the best wedding DJs in Calgary. We also have information on wedding DJ costs and some answers to FAQs to keep you well informed.

How much do wedding DJ services cost? 

Calgary wedding DJs cost around $800–$2000, depending on their expertise, length or extent of the DJ set, and venue or guestlist size. 

Some wedding DJ services can also cost as low as $250 but these packages are often not personalized with pre-made playlists and less actual DJ involvement.

The Best Wedding DJs in Calgary

Before you go ahead and choose a wedding DJ, you must know that we followed a few standards during our search. Here are the factors and values in mind as we chose our top Calgary DJs:

Professional gear. You won’t have to worry about finding DJ equipment as our listed DJs will bring all the professional DJ equipment they need. Some will even bring extras.
Great communication. We made sure that the DJs will communicate effectively, respect your opinions, play your requested songs, and skip songs from your do-not-play list. 
Portfolio and previous works. We tried as much as possible to include DJs who are willing to sample their previous works or personalized playlist so you can check whether or not they fit your vibe.
Flexibility. Events always encounter delays or changes, so our listed wedding DJs are those who are flexible enough to make the necessary adjustments on the fly.
Availability. We considered their operating hours and days as well as their reservation windows.
Costs. Wedding DJs aren’t cheap, but we made sure that our list only contains DJs that deliver good value for their pricing.

Pez Productions special is that it also has a lighting department. So, this wedding DJ can easily coordinate the lights and sounds to give you your desired setting during your wedding.

As proof of its work, Pez Productions even has an online video gallery where couples can check whether or not it’s a good fit for their wedding.

Pez Productions also allows its customers to personalize their wedding experience. We say this because this DJ company does consultations and distributes pre-event questionnaires to its customers.

Customer Reviews

Friendly, professional, organized, and responsive DJs

“We hired Pez Productions for our small family wedding of about 40 guests. Lindsay and Fayyaz were an absolute pleasure to work with. They were friendly, professional, organized, responsive, and needed very little direction. Given that our wedding was a small family wedding, we were worried that none of our guests would dance. However, every person at our wedding danced and the dance floor was busy until it closed! Fayyaz played great music, read the room, and incorporated song requests very well. Fayyaz also played a part in reorganizing the floor plan of our room, which made it a lot more conducive to dancing and fun. We would highly recommend hiring Pez Productions and we intend to hire Pez Productions when we plan a larger celebration with our friends.”—Joe Connelly

Understands your style of music, goes above and beyond

“We used Pez for lighting and DJ/sound services at our mountain wedding, and we were so blown away by how they made our tented reception come to life! Fayyaz went above and beyond to ensure our wedding was an amazing celebration for us to remember for many years to come! He completely understood our style of music and we danced all night long with our friends and family.  In the following days we had friends reaching out asking for his information to book him for their own upcoming weddings.   The colours and style of lighting Fayyaz chose made our tent look even more beautiful sitting below the mountains.  We highly recommend Fayyaz and the rest of the Pez production team – They are the best in the business! We can’t wait for our professional photos to see what a fun time we were all having in such a beautiful tent.”—Clare McCaffrey

Revolution Entertainment offers more than just the best DJ services in Calgary as it also has live bands, photographers, videographers, photobooth experts, and event planners in its team.

It has several DJ service packages that can be lively enough for just about any party size, whether it be a small group of 150 guests or a large gathering of 500. 

Revolution’s first DJ package is the digital DJ package where clients can get access to over 50 million songs, a microphone, and some backup support for $295. While this package may come with a set-up team, its function is still pretty limited.

Luckily, it also has the Sound Tech DJ package where clients get an actual onsite DJ as well as a back-up DJ, event coordinator, and on-call manager.

Revolution also offers the Revolution Experience package, perfect for those who want a more personalized service. This package comes with a DJ that will read the crowd, play song requests, and organize games.

We also like that Revolution Entertainment offers all its DJ packages with a free photo booth to be set up and used for up to 8 hours. Its last two packages even come with a lighting service.

However, despite all these features and offers, some previous clients still have some complaints, especially when it comes to rescheduling and refunds. So, check the contract before securing it for your wedding.

  • Numerous DJ package options
  • Most DJ packages come with lighting and photo booth
  • Relatively affordable DJ services
  • Back-up DJ available

Customer Reviews

Willing to help, adaptable, easy to use song system, punctual and super nice DJ

“We had booked Revolution for our wedding. From the start when I called just for a quote they were so easy to talk to and helpful. As covid pressed on, they were always right there willing to help and so adaptable to all the situations, which ended up changing twice in the last week before our day. Their online song system was super easy to use and had almost all the songs we wanted. All it took was a quick email to get any missing songs we wanted added to our playlist. On the day, the DJ was punctual, and was ready to go with all his equipment. I spoke with him right after our ceremony and he was super nice and said a big congratulations to us. He was super excited for our playlist as he said it was his type of music too. Made it so easy for him to mix the playlist together and our guests (especially us) loved the whole thing! From the first song to the last, never an empty dance floor!

Should we ever need to hire a DJ again, would hit them up in a second.

Would recommend them to everyone!”—Taylor Rink

Perfect from booking to end of the event, professional, attentive, thoughtful, and fun DJ

“We hired Kaleb for our weeding ceremony and reception, everything was perfect! From booking through the end of the night, Kaleb was professional, attentive, thoughtful, and fun! He played what we liked, skipped what we didn’t, and had the floor busy all night. Our ceremony music was well timed and what we envisioned. All around easy, positive, and memorable experience with Revolution!”—Nick Dalupan

Smooth planning process, responsive, caring, and awesome DJ

“We hired Hype as our DJ for our wedding a month ago and it was great! The planning process went so smooth, they’re very responsive and the online planner helps you figure out things you couldn’t even think of!!Our DJ was Andrew and he did an awesome job keeping everyone on the floor all night. He also kept checking in with me and my husband throughout the night to make sure everything was great and if we were happy with his services, and we really appreciated that.”—Rebecca Waldner

Punctual, professional, fun, and flexible DJ, caters to different age groups

“Hype! Entertainment was outstanding to work with! Our DJ Jeff did an incredible job at our wedding at the Calgary Zoo. He was punctual, professional, flexible and fun throughout the entire evening. Jeff communicated extremely well with the MC, my husband and myself throughout the night regarding timing, preferences, special requests, etc. His music selection was great, and he catered to a number of different age groups. The dance floor was always filled, and many of my guests had a great time dancing. Jeff was also very professional when handling guest requests for songs and group/line dances. During these songs, Jeff actually got on the dance floor to demonstrate for those guests who were not familiar with the dance. He continued to play for a while after the scheduled end time, because guests were still dancing and having a great time. The online music selection platform is very easy to use, and allowed us to really tailor our music choices for the evening. Rob and Chelsie Isley were both very professional and easy to work with during the planning process. Overall, we had an amazing experience with Hype! and I will definitely be recommending them to all my friends and family needing DJ services in the future!”—Teagan Shlapak

Caters to specific requests, runs things smoothly, energetic

“I heard about Barbu Entertainment after a friends wedding, she could not stop talking about how amazing their evening was and how everyone was on the dance floor all night long! That doesn’t usually happen at weddings, so I was interested in booking him for my own wedding right away! With covid, everything about our day changed, and group sizes changed just in time so we could still have an intimate ceremony and reception, with Barbu Entertainment there with us as well! We had a few specific requests, and he made sure he could make it all happen for us. On the day, Anatoli even ran up to our waiting room before the ceremony to give us a heads up that we should get down there to make sure we get the cue we wanted! Anatoli’s energy is infectious, and he will make sure things run smooth, and that there will be a dance party no one can resist joining in on! I can’t wait to dance the night away at friends future weddings!”—Kaity Body

Reads the crowd, keeps dance floors full, reasonably priced

“DJ Barbu was great!! He read the crowd and kept our dance floor full all night. He was very reasonably priced for an out of town wedding, and felt like we were working with an old friend – he was happy to take our requests and had a great selection of music. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting to dance all night at their next event!”—Courtney R

Coordinates timeline, cares about preferences, good music selection

“We booked Outright Entertainment for our September wedding and they were such a pleasure to work with.  Austin worked directly with us and helped us coordinate timeline and even helped us book “strings” for our ceremony and cocktail hour. Adam the DJ was AMAZING – he worked directly with us leading up to the wedding to ask our preferences on songs and sets. The night of the wedding I can honestly say I don’t think there was one song played that didn’t have us all out on the dancefloor – friends could not stop commenting on how good the music selection was. We were dancing the night away for sure!! Highly recommend Outright for your entertainment needs!”—Shelby Fortune

Takes your recommendations seriously, helps wedding planning and works with other planning members

“Outright came highly recommend to us by our venue, the zoo, and we were thrilled by their service. They took our recommendations for song choices/genres seriously, while also helping our wedding planning by putting together a great playlist for the evening. Our DJ, Adam, even worked with a dance instructor we had hired to get the party started. Overall a great experience and would recommend to others!”—David Nelson

Ryan at Vegas Entertainment did such an amazing job at our wedding last weekend. He was so pleasant and friendly. He checked in with us. And kept people on the dance floor basically all night! I was especially appreciative of his agility during the day as there was some weather concerns and we were pivoting quickly. Chris was great to deal with all throughout the process as well. I highly recommend Vegas Entertainment!

“We had Vegas Entertainment DJ our wedding and couldn’t be happier with the level of service provided! Chris was responsive and made the process easy to book and plan. Our DJ, Tyson, did a great job keeping the party going and choosing songs that our guests wanted to dance to. Chris even came on-site to help with the photobooth, which was a huge hit! Vegas Entertainment are true professionals and will do everything to make your event the way you want it.”

Here are some reviews from their clients:

“Highly recommend Vince for your wedding day, entertainment needs!! He was very accommodating to my broad spectrum of music from our ceremony to the dance floor! He did an amazing job of playing to the crowd and had my family and friends dancing all night long. Very easy to work with, and would absolutely recommend him!
I’ll also note, he was the only vendor who did not increase prices or make things complicated during the rebooking, post covid! Honoured his pricing and THAT speaks volumes.”

Vince was incredibly professional and supportive right from the get-go. He was prompt, kind, and thorough in his email responses to our many questions and, when the COVID-19 pandemic hit, he calmly helped us rebook our wedding not once, but twice. We sincerely appreciated how Vince helped us navigate the planning process. His process for gathering playlist information is very efficient and takes the confusion out of the process. On the day of the wedding he was punctual, organized and a joy to have amongst the festivities. He made our ceremony absolutely perfect and seamlessly transitioned from that into an outdoor party. When the indoor dance floor opened later in the evening, we knew we were in for a party. He catered to what the group was responding to but also played the requests we made and threw in some original mixes. He kept the dance floor going until 2 am. Vince is a truly talented DJ and really goes the extra mile for his clients. We really couldn’t have asked for a better DJ and will forever be grateful for the ambience and service he provided that day.

“We are so glad we decided to book Boyd Entertainment for our wedding celebration in Banff! Vince was very professional, organized, and quick to respond to all our emails. We did the additional photo booth package and all our guests (and children) loved it! He had people on the dance floor all night long and also MCed for us that night. We highly recommend him to any other people looking for DJ. Thank you, Vince, for making our wedding celebration so memorable!”

OPERATING HOURSOpen 24 hours

If you’d like to throw a wedding party, SL Entertainment has some of the top DJs to call. They’re also good for birthdays and corporate events.

We commend the fact that many of their DJs have over a decade’s worth of experience providing versatile music (electronic, hip-hop, R&B, etc.). Because of this, we think you can rely on them to have a good time.

It’s also much appreciated that they have several packages for prospects depending on their needs and preferences – Basic, Essentials, and Luxe. 

The differences among these are the duration of the DJ’s services, the availability of subwoofers (loudspeakers), sound activated lights, and LED uplights. Though, we like that most of what you’ll need is available with the basic package.

Also, quotes may differ, so we believe it’s best to contact them for the most up-to-date pricing. You may request a quote through their Google Form, but this may take you around 5 to 10 minutes to accomplish since it has 6 pages.

You should also check out their mixtapes, streams, and videos from past events to see what they can do. We find their music collections helpful for future reference.

Pros

  • Team of experienced and versatile DJs
  • Complete sound equipment
  • Offers several DJ packages
  • Has lots of mixtapes and videos as your basis

Cons

  • Prices may vary and need to be confirmed with them
  • Answering their Google Form may take some time

Customer Reviews

The music was perfect right through from the ceremony to the reception

“We hired Mike for our wedding, and he was an absolute pleasure to work with! He is professional and kind, and does not miss any details. His online system/client portal made everything from booking to planning the music such a breeze; there was zero stress for us when it came to any of this because we knew Mike had it covered. On the day of our wedding we could not have been any more pleased with Mike’s services. The music was perfect right through from the ceremony to the reception, and he had the dance floor full the entire evening! We would 10/10 recommend KHAOS Entertainment to anyone looking for a DJ for any type of function. ” – Joelle Glanville

Mike is fantastic to work with and he was proactive in scheduling meetings

“Mike is fantastic to work with and he was proactive in scheduling meetings to discuss our wedding reception. He helped make our wedding everything we have ever dreamed of! Mike kept everyone on the dance floor and no one wanted the party to end! I would highly recommend Mike to anyone looking for a DJ for their next event.”  – Chelsea Kowalchuk

What Does A Wedding DJ Do? 

Wedding DJs are not just there to play the right music for important wedding moments. They’re also essential as they help organize the program and give timely announcements. 

Generally, a wedding DJ can set and improve the mood of these significant parts of the wedding reception:

  • Wedding party introduction
  • Cocktail hour music
  • Toast and speech announcements and introductions
  • Cake cutting announcements
  • Dinner time background music
  • First dance and other special dances
  • Celebratory dances (kid and family-friendly)
  • Bouquet and garter games
  • Last song dance

To make these program parts as natural and unrehearsed as possible, you’ll have to share your program details and song requests with your DJ early on. Feel free to share mood boards for each part of the program so they can work freely, too.
