Class reunions are AJ/DJ Entertainment's specialty – we love their nostalgic aura, as well as researching music from bygone eras to play at them.
Reunions provide great opportunities for old friends to become reacquainted and new friendships to be born. They allow classmates the chance to reminiscence on those golden moments from their youth. Whether it's the first gathering at your five year class reunion, or if it's your 25 or 50-year class reunion, we’ll provide the right mix of music your generation has come to love. We'll also play the music at an appropriate sound level so dancing is encouraged, yet doesn't interfere with classmate's conversations. If your classmates are more active and want to dance, we'll be glad to help facilitate the energy and excitement. If your classmates are more content to sit back, listen to music and reminisce with old friends, and not dance or participate as much, that's fine too.
Decorate the tables with products from the past. Select items popular when you were in school. Buttons from political elections, magazines, books, records and other such items will get people talking of the good old days.
Make charts of the places people have lived since school, the jobs they have held, or the number of children they have.
Use different colored name tags for class members and spouses/guests to make it easy to tell who is who. For the spouses/guests, you might consider having their name on the name tag, along with "spouse of ________" or "guest of ____________" (fill in the blank with your classmate's name).
Have extra "blank" name tags printed so you can use an indelible marker to write in the names of last-minute arrivals.
As we get older, it gets hard to see small print. Make sure the names (especially the first name) on your name tags are big enough to be seen from a distance. Many name tags have the first name printed much larger than the last name.
If possible, put copies of senior pictures on the name tags.
A number of reunions we’ve played at have had class trivia contests and awards (such as who traveled the farthest to attend, who’s been married the longest, who has the most grandchildren, etc.). Gift cards and school store merchandise always make great prizes.
Alumni interested in complaining or offering constructive criticism after the reunion should first fill out an "I volunteer to help with the next reunion" form.
When choosing the music for your reunion, the more songs from your era, the better. Make sure to tell the DJ in advance of any special songs you'd like to hear, such as prom themes, favorites from school dances or songs played at your sporting events.
If your budget will permit, consider our a professional photographer to capture both candid moments and posed groupings. Capture each of your classmates and their guest by offering a Red Carpet with custom Step-n-Repeat backdrop or our custom photo booth to add to the fun and excitement each with the option of providing instant prints for your classmates to take home with them.
In Summary, AJ/DJ Entertainment can furnish all your Entertainment, Photo, Video and Photo Booth needs at affordable prices.
