Wouldn’t it be Perfect if you could combine the elegance and sophistication of live musicians with the flexibility, music selection, and party atmosphere of a Disc Jockey? Wouldn’t it be Perfect if you could have all of this for about ½ the price of a band? Wouldn’t it be Perfect if someone with the experience, reputation and resources could take care of all of your entertainment needs all at once?
Our package includes a small, low-volume ambience group for cocktail hour and/or dinner, and a DJ for the remainder of the event. In most situations the ambiance group performs during cocktail hour, and through dinner. The DJ begins playing music immediately after dinner. The disc jockey acts as primary emcee of the event, and he will be available to make announcements for the duration of the event.
This package can also be customized to provide for artists to perform at Wedding ceremonies and events taking place at multiple sites.

We had a wonderful experience working with Murray Hill Talent for our wedding music needs. You were prompt and helpful in coordinating our band/dj combo. The band, Endless Summer, did a nice job setting the mood for our reception during the cocktail hour. DJ Brendan Howard was terrific and played all the right songs at the right times, our guests had a blast and we couldn't have been happier with everything

Great musicians, and the DJ was really easy to work with. He had a great attitude, and made great music selections. I would definitely recommend Murray Hill Talent to friend & colleagues.
