"Saying Partytime is "different" than other DJ's out there is a bold statement, but I personally believe strongly in it ... and wouldn't if I did not believe I bring a fresh new approach to this business for our Clients.
I thought hard about what matters to people looking for professional DJ's, and then built Partytime based on our "8 Rules For Our Clients Happiness". They are my guidelines for conducting my business, and you can expect that I follow them to the letter.
I follow that with "experience". I wholeheartedly believe it is our experience and knowledge of music, sound equipment, and understanding how to read a crowd, which sets Partytime Music apart from the competition. Add to this that I believe in only using the best leading technology equipment, the most respected music reproduction software in the business, and the highest quality music available.
I believe that many people develop a keen sense of comfort and trust in the person they choose to provide services for such special days ... so I intentionally keep Partytime Music as a small operation. Sending a DJ to your party that I don't have 100% confidence in after I earn your trust, just does not cut it with me.
Finally, as Rule number 8 states ... I truly believe it is the "little things we do" which make all the difference. For example, moments before the first dance at a recent wedding, I chose to tear down and relocate the sound system at a reception because the table next to the speakers turned out to be the grand-parents. The hand shake I received from the brides grandfather afterwards told me it was just the right thing to do.
Please let me show you why I believe Partytime Music Services, is truly that different!!"

Experience is Everything
Today, digital music is everywhere, and becoming easier to get every day. Unfortunately, this ease of obtaining music, often illegally, has also resulted in many people branding themselves disc jockeys and playing their iPods through a rented PA system. While this is perfectly suited to small informal parties at home, a professional disc jockey knows there is much more to a successful night than just playing music. Just ask a bride who had a friend play their iPod for her wedding reception.
Partytime Music is owned and operated by Terry McKone, an area musician with over 30 years of performing music for every imaginable type of party. Starting in a county music band at age 16, through to playing on such incredible stages as the former Lulu's bar in a Tragically Hip tribute band, Terry has developed a keen sense of what people want from an Entertainer. In fact, Partytime Music Services started as a result of an increasing number of clients asking Terry to play recorded music at functions too small to afford live music. Today, Partytime Music Services has even been asked to provide the music for the weddings of children of his previously satisfied customers.
Well OK, "Experience is Everything" ... But So Is Great Sound Equipment
We utilize computerized digital music reproduction, played through one of the most amazing sound systems ever produced, by one of the world's most dynamic sound system companies... BOSE. The L1 tower is a compact, 6 foot high tower, designed to throw crystal clear sound at equal volume all around a room. Taking up no more than 2 feet of space, this speaker not only sound amazing, but is inconspicuous as well. No more gaudy speakers placed around your tastefully decorated reception. For larger parties, we have arena size sound systems by QSC available to make sure the dancers FEEL the beat!! If our clients want lighting, we include our standard system of colored and moving moving lights at no additional cost. For larger parties, we use the services of PM Lighting of Stratford, featuring eye-popping lights, lasers, and strobes. We will ensure all lighting is tasteful, to enhance any party. The choice is yours.
Yes, Great Equipment Can Break Down Too, Then What?
For all our functions back-up equipment is available should the need arise. Because we use only high-quality, professional equipment this is hardly ever the case. However, we take pride in each and every event, so we never take the chance of having a technical malfunction.
