When booking with Driftwood Music, you can expect:
Simplicity and Peace of Mind
We do not employ multiple disc jockeys with varying levels of experience. Your disc
jockey and contact throughout the planning stages will be Derek Leonard, the owner
and operator of Driftwood Music. We also do not book more than one event per day.
All of this ensures that your function gets the personal care and attention it deserves.
With over twenty years' experience playing numerous types of events, we know how to get
everyone up and dancing from all age groups.
Unlimited Partnered Event Planning
Time is needed to prepare song requests, special dances, timelines and other details. We are
always available to discuss and help plan your function through face to face meetings, email
or phone, at no extra cost.
We bring a large, varied and up-to-date music library to every function. It is currently over
10,000 songs and growing.
Professional Grade Sound System
We use quality equipment made by recognized brands to ensure a flawless performance and
always have backup gear on hand in case of hardware failure.
A wireless microphone is made available for speeches and announcements.
Appropriate song requests are always welcomed and encouraged.
Mileage and Equipment Set-Up
We do not charge for travel or equipment set-up and take-down time, only for the time music
is being played.
Stylish and Smart
We bring the party without the use of distracting props, costumes and pointless microphone
banter. Our aim is to get people on the dance floor and to keep the attention focused on where
it belongs - you and your guests.
Insurance and Licensing
We are fully insured and licensed by the AVLA. We are also a proud member of the Canadian
Disc Jockey Association.
Our pricing is based on the length of your event, date, location and any special requirements.
