Let's Dance


A brief introduction to the Atlanta based wedding and event services group, Ballroom Blitz Events.

 

Don't hire a DJ. Book a party.

Finding a great DJ shouldn’t be painful, but a few minutes on Google and you’re wincing at “DJ Partee Balloon” and all the fun games he wants to play at your event.

Ballroom Blitz is an alternative for those wanting more than the status quo in event entertainment. We're a group of music lovers that met and worked together in clubs for years before bringing it to the ballroom. We have the chops to melt your dance floor and the attitude to make you want to stay friends long after the event ends.

 
 
Dim all the lights sweet darlin’, cuz tonight it’s all the way.

Let us give you a quick visual before you continue scrolling down to learn more about The Blitz.

Why choose The Blitz?

A great party includes an attentive DJ with taste and skills, but that’s only one part of the equation. We’re not the center of the party. We’re part of it.

Mobile DJs have long been considered the goobers of the craft. They wear bad suits, advertise themselves on the microphone, and think Will Smith is the best rapper. In the mobile DJ market it’s considered edgy to say that you’re “not cheesy”, and that you “don’t play the macarena.” This should be the starting point, not what sets your DJ apart.

Actual DJing

We mix tracks club style, beat matching and trimming off the fat so that it’s constantly verse-chorus-verse-chorus. We can cover twice the music of the typical mobile DJ and we read the dance floor. “Who just left the floor after that last song? Who came? What do I play to get the millennials back after a block of 70’s funk for the parents?” It’s a battle and and it’s different for every dance floor.

Track Selection

We get to know you and discuss your vision for the event. As music lovers we dig deeper into the bag than top 40. Sometimes you get to drop a Curtis Mayfield remix and sometimes it’s Beyonce or bust. We pepper our sets with edits, remixes, and a few mashups, just enough to keep it interesting, not so much that you don’t recognize anything. 

The DJ from the ‘burbs’ will play the same 50 tracks everyone plays and doesn’t care about the concept of reading a dance floor. “If they don’t dance to The Wobble and Hey Ya! then there’s nothing I can do!” There is plenty we can do and you deserve so much more.

Lighting

This is often an undervalued part of dance floor energy. You shouldn’t just bathe the dance floor with bright lights, flashing randomly. Good dance floor lighting combines several different elements to create movement on the floor while keeping the overall light low. We also build our own lighting programs that we can play along to the music… very rare at any price point.

Gear

You can cut a lot of corners on gear, and we’ve seen it all. We won’t bore you with the details, but all of our gear is professional grade. The wireless mics will work, the bass will thump, and the lights will shine from start to finish.

Emcee

We work closely with coordinators and planners to engage your guests and get their attention when needed (and only when needed) throughout the event. Sometimes we’ll call attention to special songs on the dance floor to keep the crowd captivated and give songs meaning so they don’t head to the bar when we drop an anniversary song for your parents. We never advertise ourselves on the mic (I hate that we even have to mention that). 

Customer Service

Years of experience means we know all the questions to ask and how to prepare for anything. You may not even be aware of all the details involved in your day, which is why we take the time to make sure everything goes perfectly. Whether it's prepping the toasters before their speeches, when to fade out the song on your first dance…many DJs wing it. We nail it.

Jordan

A fixture in the Atlanta music scene since 2003 under the moniker Snowden, Jordan’s music brought him many opportunities, from touring North America and Europe opening for Kings of Leon, to spinning at smokey clubs in Atlanta. Through years of trial and error he learned how to read a dance floor, and know when it’s time to play Aretha Franklin and when to play Daft Punk. He brings a music lovers touch and a decade of nightlife experience to give your event exactly what it needs.

Tara

Hailing from Knoxville, TN, Tara Davies started her dj career by creating a dance party for her friends at a local hang out. Since moving to Atlanta she's held residencies at Graveyard Tavern, Highland Inn Lounge, Star Bar, Ammazza and played private parties for celebrities. She can currently be found every Saturday at MJQ for HeartBeeps and first Friday's at The W Downtown.
 
"I would describe my sound as being very girl-centric. What I want is for people to just dance their hearts out and forget about me even being there playing music. You know, like when you were a kid in your bedroom when no one was watching."
