What Drives Us

Most of all, we are driven by our desire to help you make your wedding the best party your guests go to all year!

We are passionate about music, people and relationships. We believe in the incredible power of music to connect people to each other like nothing else can. We love DJing because it offers us the opportunity to do just that, while meeting hundreds of interesting and unique people from all over the world at some of the most beautiful wedding venues Canada has to offer. Who wouldn't love this job?

Music

We love all styles of music at Airwaves. Regardless of a DJ's personal preference, we encourage our team to regularly listen to new genres of music and expose themselves to as much new material as possible. Our goal is simple: if you can hum it, we should be able to recognize it, find it and play it for you!

People

We love working with and meeting new people. From coordinating with your venue or photographer or interacting with your guests, we believe that the key to a successful party is lots of interaction. All of our DJs are friendly and have an authentic passion for getting to know new people.

Relationships

At your wedding, many of your guests will be meeting for the very first time. As DJ's, it's job to help them get energized and have fun so that they can really get to know each other. You'll know your wedding is a success when you see two strangers high fiving or having a dance-off in the corner!.

What We Do

Simply put, we make people dance and have the time of their lives. How we believe we do that however, is much more interesting and in depth. We believe in the power of culture and tribes a lot at Airwaves. A tribe to us is a group of like-minded people coming together with a common goal. Culture is how that group makes other people around them feel while they pursue that goal.

Our tribe is our DJ team and their goal is to make a living doing what they love (playing music!). The culture we create is how you and your guests feel the night of your wedding. Are you having fun? Are you filled with energy? Are we making you feel looked after and at ease? These questions are how we measure the quality of our culture.

We know you have a lot of choices out there when it comes to DJs. We've always believed that a team can provide the best possible experience. We've seen first hand the power a tribe has over one another. They begin to motivate each other to perform at a higher level over time. Eventually, the culture takes over completely and the entire group is performing at a level much higher than any single person could. We believe we've accomplished this at Airwaves and it's something we're incredibly proud of.

What We Believe In

Our most fundamental belief is that music matters and has the ability to profoundly impact our lives. The power of music is amplified when combined with deep emotions. For example, from your first school dance to your first kiss to college parties and then finally your first dance at your wedding, your life to date has had a soundtrack.

Even those who aren't passionate about music still cannot deny that their life has had a soundtrack. Music throughout history has had immense power. It has had the power to raise millions of dollars for charity, set the mood for a culture of change in the 1960s or hypnotize us for hours as children while we watched Disney movies.

As DJs at your wedding, we view ourselves as curators of music for the most important night of your life. You will never forget your wedding and if we do our job right, neither will your guests. We believe that our job is extremely important, satisfying and social.

In short, we believe that we should be very proud and excited to do what we do. We are extremely honoured to play your music, your way and to be a part of the soundtrack to your life.

We've DJ'd Over 1000 Weddings

Its hard to believe for us too, but since 2008 we've DJ'd over 1000 weddings as well as many more events. As a potential customer, that means you can be assured that we are consistently providing great wedding DJs at each of the events we book. Year over year, we are growing and are now up to 6 cities. That simply cannot happen without great word of mouth support from past customers but also strong referrals from other vendors in the industry as well. We are extremely selective about the people that join our team and are confident that we offer the best value in the country when it comes to wedding DJs.

You can read some reviews from our past customers here.
