About Dub C DJs
We Rock the Party
Since its establishment in 2005, Dub C DJs has refined its brand of DJing and has expanded to become one of the Washington, DC area's preeminent DJ firms. Our comprehensive entertainment service covers everything from event lighting to emceeing; however, the art of music selection is first and foremost to our operations.
Expertise in Music Selection
Our core competency is music selection. For nearly a decade, Dub C DJs has maintained a meticulous record keeping and music research system that tracks per event how varying audiences respond to different song selections. Our strategy combines art and science by balancing a sufficient amount of music that audiences are familiar with, while also incorporating unique and provocative tracks that provide some edge and freshness to the events at which we preside. To implement this music-first culture, nearly all of the DJs that comprise our talent pool are also performing musicians and recording artists. Their investment in and dedication to music, and the skills developed performing live at clubs, uniquely positions them to DJ events.
We Keep it Simple
Another cornerstone of Dub C DJs' service is that we bring simplicity to the client experience. From not requiring a security deposit to using a streamlined pre-event consultation process, our service is designed to save the time and energy of our clients given the many other event logistics to which they must attend.
The people behind Dub C DJs are in this business because we like to party and because we recognize the value of taking time to celebrate good times with family, friends, and community. Great music is indispensable to such settings and we would be honored to be your DJ for these gatherings.
