School Dances

Shopping for a DJ for your next School Dance?

Selecting a DJ by price alone is very dangerous so here is some help. Here are some frequently asked questions.

1. Have you ever performed at our school?
  • Since 1989 We have performed almost EVERY school on the Gulf Coast!
2. Do you have liability insurance?
  • Schools can not afford to have un-insured DJ’s on School property. A DJ Connection carries over one million dollars in coverage.
3. Do you take and play requests?
  • We do both. We play the music the students came to dance to. We take requests in person and we also have an online music selector to help you decide.
4. Are you school board approved with security clearance?
  • We are!
5. Do you have clean and edited versions of your music, like on the radio?
  • We do! All of our music is radio-edited.
6. Do you have a very large sound system suited for our room size and number of guests?
  • Heck yes! It takes a huge sound system for music to sound good in a gym! A pair of speakers on stands isn’t enough. When your DJ is under-powered, you will have big problems because we know you want the music LOUD with BASS!
7. What if you get sick? Will we still have a DJ?
  • A DJ Connection has a team of solid DJs. We will NEVER cancel on you!

You need an awesome dance and laser lighting show. Lasers are VERY expensive but every school dance we perform receives a high powered laser light show just as shown in the school dance video.

You want the latest hits on the radio? A DJ Connection has them.

All DJs at A DJ Connection meet security requirements of Florida Statue 1012.32 Title: XLVIIII Chapter: 1012. That means you know the DJ at your school is one of the good guys and this is a School Board requirement that only security cleared DJ’s be allowed to interact with students.

“Students deserve a great DJ”


Why shouldn’t clients simply shop for the lowest price in all of their event services? A DJ Connection has been in the DJ business since 1989 and we have tried to educate our clients the best deal isn’t always the cheapest price.

My phone rang today with a frantic school dance sponsor. “I need a DJ this Sataurday,” she stressed. I asked why she needed to book so late. She told me her DJ wasn’t returning her calls. I asked what her music budget was. She said $400.00. I asked how many students had purchased tickets and what was the fee to get in. She said 700 kids and 35.00. That’s $24,500.00! I asked her who the DJ was. She said it was a student that graduated from that school and “just DJs for fun.” Do you think the students of that school deserve a top notch DJ after paying 35.00 to get in? How about one with licensed music and not stolen from the web? How about one with the credentials/background check required by Florida law to ensure the DJ is safe to be around students? How about a sound system large enough for 700 students? $400.00 for a DJ? Really? I quoted her our price and she said that’s just too high. I wished her the best of luck. Lesson? When you book a DJ, please consider more than just pricing. In the case of schools and school dances, I do not recommend having students shop DJs, and be in charge of DJ selection, bookings, contracts and payment. I understand SGA thinks this is a great learning opportunity, but I think there may be some other learning opportunities that will not affect the entire student body if one student should make an error.

Since 1989, A DJ Connection has provided our Pensacola, FL and surrounding area schools with huge sound systems, the finest in crazy cool lighting, lasers and the music the students want to hear without the explicit lyrics. I’ll admit we are not the cheapest in town, but we are certainly not the most expensive. However, we will give your students the highest quality entertainment package worthy of them paying $35.00 to go to the dance.
