here's my deal:
My name is Hannah Minks, and I'm a gal who DJs. Not only because I've always liked music a whole lot,
but mostly because many DJs are bad.
"Bad" meaning inhospitable. It's inexcusable for a DJ to make a gig about themselves. A good DJ reads the room, sets the mood, plays a solid mix of tried and true hits + forgotten deep cuts, and says as little into the microphone as possible all the while.
In short, a good DJ isn't cheesy—and at my gigs, only the snacks are cheesy.
All packages described below include a free consultation, setup + teardown the day of your event, and a client-DJ relationship marked with genuine care. These packages are intended to spark conversation between us about the vision for your event, and they aren't meant to impose an inflexible template. So let's talk if it looks like you need to tweak one of them to suit you better!
bang for your buck
This package includes 4 hours of no frills DJing. If you just need me to show up, effectively read the room, and play music accordingly with no extra logistical concerns, this is probably the package for you.
pump up the jam
This package includes 6 hours of DJing, and it's ideal for events that require extra finesse. Perhaps you're planning a wedding and would like the music to help orchestrate the flow of a whole evening, from loved ones taking their seats at the ceremony all the way down to loosening their ties and kicking off their heels later on the dance floor. This package also includes the additional bonus of projecting footage of classic dance scenes to help set the mood for the party.
rock around the clock
This package is a doozy at 12 hours of DJing. If you desire an all-out, nonstop celebration, look no further. Do you have a rehearsal dinner the night before your wedding that could use a soundtrack? Would you like an after-party? Are you hosting a conference that requires days-worth of keeping energy up amidst workshops? Then this is the package for you.
"Booking Hannah as the DJ at my wedding was the best decision I made for the event! Three years later, our guests tell me what a blast they had on the dance floor. Hannah runs a soup-to-nuts gig: from organizing the playlist, bringing the equipment, and creating a vibe such that your shy uncle may find himself dancing—and all for an extremely reasonable price."
"We were initially unsure about booking a DJ for our wedding at all, but after our first meeting with Hannah, we immediately reconsidered — this was the one of the best decisions we made. Hannah is a true MC: she compiled an incredible playlist, brought amazing energy (and cheesy snacks!), and helped make our special night flow seamlessly. Oh, and she made 100% sure that ‘cotton-eyed joe’ was not played, despite one drunken bridesmaid’s incessant requests. 10/10, would highly, highly recommend!"
"My husband and I booked Hannah as our DJ after a glowing recommendation from a friend, and we could not be happier with our decision. From the initial consultation, we knew that Hannah would be able to provide exactly what we envisioned for our wedding. Hannah brought a lot to the table initially - she had a sample playlist ready to go and a really fun video that could be projected that was a compilation of dance clips from famous movies. When we decided to go in a different direction, she was able to pivot without any hesitation and didn't take it personally. We also really loved Hannah's "non-cheesy" policy, and thought the idea of having guests write personal messages and haikus to us if they wanted to request songs was a very unique and sweet touch. I cannot emphasize enough how happy we are to have booked Hannah to DJ our wedding - she is quick to respond, easy to work with, and extremely professional. She also provided all the equipment herself, which saved us cost and worry. Beyond that, she is just a lovely person and it made us happy to know we were able to support someone that actually seemed excited to be a part of our wedding, and didn't view us as another job or paycheck."
"Hannah totally brought the party vibes to our wedding reception! She really listened to our vision for the day, and even made us some sample playlists in the weeks leading up to the main event. Hannah is a true professional and a great human being to work with. We liked her so much that we recommended her for our friends' wedding the week after our own! You will not regret booking Hannah as your wedding DJ."
"Hannah was the DJ at our wedding, working with us to create two really great playlists—one for cocktail hour and one for our wedding reception. The dance floor was packed all night! Before the wedding, she took the time to understand our taste in music, and even threw in a few songs we hadn't thought of but the crowd loved. Hannah was the best vendor decision we made for our entire wedding and I recommend her to anyone who doesn't want to hire just another typical DJ.
