Frank Sinatra's Mainstream Success And Impact

Frank Sinatra’s influence on the music industry is immeasurable. With a career spanning over five decades, he achieved numerous chart-topping hits and accolades. Notably, he scored a remarkable 31 top ten hits on the Billboard Hot 100 and received nine Grammy Awards, including the prestigious Album of the Year for “Come Dance with Me!” in 1960 and “Album of the Year” for “Sinatra: A Man and His Music” in 1967.

Of course, his versatility and charisma (starting from the swing era to the rock ‘n’ roll revolution) have not only allowed him to adapt to changing musical landscapes, but have also earned him the reputation of being a mainstay in countless personal playlists, weddings included! 

That’s why, for any couple that’s looking to add a touch of elegance and class to their ceremony and reception, Sinatra is an easy pick. After all, there’s no denying that a wedding filled with his rich baritone voice and the lush orchestral arrangements will feel all the more sophisticated and magical. 

Oh, and we’re sure your old folks will appreciate the song selection too… and would probably treat the reception party as their own personal ballroom, but that’s just the magic of Sinatra for ya!

The #1 problem clients face...

As I’m sure you’re aware, we live in a world where people fear commitment. People leave all of their options open, because they’re afraid they might end up loosing out on a future opportunity that might be superior to what is right in front of them.

Yet this way of thinking is wrong… But why?

Because by failure to commit to something, the best options available become unavailable. What we thought was a sure thing, ends up becoming a missed opportunity. Through our deliberate action of inaction, we’re soon presented with second-tier options. Options that you wish you could’ve avoided in the first place. But you’ve already committed to the idea of hiring a DJ, so you end up going through with it anyway, and you choose whoever is available because you don’t want to completely miss out. But you know in your heart it didn’t feel like the right choice. And when the money is spent, and the performance is over, you’re disappointed. And you tell yourself: never again. Yet just like a teenager who claims to never drink again after binge drinking the night before, we end up in a cycle of never committing, and always being stuck with bad alternatives. Deep down inside, we’re unhappy. And we’re left with regret.

Amazing opportunities don't last long.

DJing.ca only performs at 125 corporate events per year,  and performs in front of companies such as McLaren, FlyOver Canada, and ActiveState. As we get more referrals each year, the number of calls & emails continues to grow. 

And with good reason.

Having a 100% satisfaction rate, we keep getting referrals. That’s what happens when you are Vancouver’s best DJs.

I know a lot of other people claim that, but here’s the facts:

We spent an entire year, or 4,000+ hours (yes, we’re work-a-holics) searching through 350 DJs, only to find the top 15 that met our expectations based on personality, experience, and professionalism. If any DJ doesn’t receive a 5/5 star rating from clients (just like yourself), they do not meet the requirements of our contract and can no longer work with us.

And here’s the kicker…

To date we haven’t had to remove anyone.

If you want your event to be truly amazing, don’t hesitate. Fill out the form, we’re here to help. Let’s work together to make your vision come to life.
