Transform your event with music
Whether you desire acoustic music for an intimate setting or a full size band, DJ, or MC, The Music Isle can accommodate any venue and any size event.
Everybody’s musical tastes are different so we customize our music for each event to assure that you get exactly what you want; live Classical guitar or Smooth Jazz for a wedding ceremony or cocktail reception; D.J. for dinner and dancing, etc.
Our DJ music library is always current and we have over five thousand song titles plus a Wi-Fi connected system to access virtually any song ever recorded.
The DJ can M.C. your event and make all announcements and introductions. We offer a worksheet that addresses every aspect of a wedding day from pre-ceremony to the last dance.
We have a wireless mic available for you and your guests to pass around for toasts or speeches.
The Music Isle has state of the art equipment for a professional sound and can accommodate any setting from a sandy beach "off the grid" to the largest venues. All of our equipment is insured and The Music Isle has liability insurance to protect you and your guests, and the venue, in the event of an accident.
The Music Isle is a member of A.S.C.A.P.
If you want to do it yourself and all you need is a great sound, we rent full sound systems; microphones, wireless mics, guitars, amps, all necessary power and audio cables; includes cartage on and off the location, set up, and sound check.
