Featured DJ: Graingertainment

Graingertainment is based in Lakeland, Florida. We are a full-time DJ service that proudly serves Central Florida and beyond. This includes Tampa, Clearwater, St. Petersburg, Anna Maria, Sarasota, and Florida’s Gulf Coast.

What We Offer:

We are an entertainment company that offers Disc Jockey, Master of Ceremonies, Lighting, Photo Booths, Officiating, and live musicians for any event.

Our Wedding Style Is:

Our main emphasis on djing events is on the music, we aim to be discreet and out of the way, creating the perfect balance of originality, spontaneity, and customization essential for djing events in and around Central Florida. We craft and play the combination of music you and your guests will enjoy most, and have a deep knowledge of a wide range of music to incorporate into a variety of events. Most often it is a collaborative process, with the client having an idea of what they are looking for and working together to achieve the best event possible.

Our Personality Is:

We are personable, fun, and charismatic while providing a professional appearance and environment for your wedding. Our goal is to provide the best time for your guests at each and every venue we perform. We pride ourselves on our ability to provide excellent service.

What Inspired Us to Start Our Business is:

Working many weddings as college students, we had the opportunity to view the DJs that worked the events. We can’t recall one DJ we’re impressed with during that time. We knew there was a market still for a company to not be so arrogant and cheesy. We started “Graingertainment”.

We Love Being a Part of the Wedding Industry Because:

We started this business because we love discovering music and playing it for people, watching people laugh and cry with their friends and family, and ultimately enjoying themselves remembering such an amazing event. We want this enthusiasm and care on our part to be the basis for trust on your part – so you can simply relax and not only put away your nervousness about the DJ, but have confidence that the music could very well be the best part of your event.

What Makes Our Business Stand Out From Other Vendors Is:

We put an emphasis on taking the time to get to know what our clients want and working with them to structure the event so that everything flows organically. With an extensive music collection that spans everything from baroque classical to the freshest electronic beats, from Indie to mainstream pop, we are able to handle a wide variety of events, from corporate events to multicultural weddings to private sweet 16 parties. While the Graingertainment music collection includes over 100,000 songs, what’s most essential is which songs are selected and when they are played.

One Thing Most Couples Would Be Surprised to Know About Us Is:

We love hip hop. I would say Hip Hop is one of our favorite genres to mix and to really get the party started. You can agree, once the booze hits your internal system, you want hip hop!

One of Our Non-Wedding Passions Is:

My current passion right now is trying to win shoes. I know it sounds funny, but the shoe market is a billion-dollar industry. They release these shoes that people go crazy over. If you win a pair, it’s a rush! Don’t judge me.

Four hours, No cheesiness, a Complete PA system, an MC/DJ, and everything you need for an amazing time!

Bride and Groom First Dance | Jewel Toned Wedding Reception Inspiration | Tampa Bay Venue Poynter Institute | St Petersburg DJ Graingertainment

Vibrant Jewel-Toned Downtown St. Pete Wedding | The Poynter Institute

We both love to dance and eat, and we just wanted everyone to come together and have a good time, especially after being apart for so long during the pandemic. We're in our late 30s, so we wanted late '90s and early 2000s pop and hip hop.

Graingertainment was super responsive to questions. We spoke with Dylan on the phone before the ceremony, and he guided us step by step through the program and all the song choices we needed to make. He encouraged us to stick to our guns about our choices instead of trying to please others. Since our planner had worked with Dylan before, she was able to relay logistical questions, so we didn't have to worry about the technical side of getting audio in the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception spaces.

Outdoor Pastel Spring Wedding | Tampa Garden Club

I saw a post from Graingertainment on Instagram of one of their DJ’s spinning with a sax player and immediately knew it was the company we had to go with!

While we didn’t end up selecting a sax player to accompany our DJ, they made sure our DJ was the perfect fit for what we were looking for!

DJ Eric was awesome and gave all the Vegas music vibes we asked for with custom mixes. He kept the party going, even when the bridal party came back in after our sparkler exit! We also rented uplighting from them, which set the right mood for the night.

I feel like a DJ is a really hard vendor to pick because it’s not like you can look at their previous work like you can with a photographer, videographer, or even a florist. Unless you’ve been to a wedding they’ve worked, you’re choosing blind. Luckily our wedding planner highly suggested one DJ to us, and we’re glad we listened.

Chris, with Graingertainment, was great, kept the party going, and read the room. He also provided the photo booth we had, which was a big hit! The guy working the photobooth was phenomenal! People kept saying how funny he was.

Modern, Timeless Neutral Ybor City Wedding | Hotel Haya

We wanted someone who was young and who would understand what vibe we wanted. The DJ is responsible for the party, and we wanted a professional who could do just that.

I found out about Graingertainment and could not be happier! They were extremely easy to get in touch with and professional. We had DJ Dylan, and you could tell that he knew what he was doing. I seriously cannot say enough good things about Dylan and our experience with Graingertainment! I have had friends say to me that we had the most fun dance floor they have been a part of at a wedding.
