We Love Being a Part of the Wedding Industry Because:

We take great pride in our business. You can be confident that your disc jockey/emcee will provide you with impeccable service.

We also have a full-time office staff at your service Monday through Friday from 9 am-5 pm.

What Makes Our Business Stand Out From Other Vendors Is:

Our focus is on customer satisfaction.

Bride and Groom First Dance | Grand Ballroom Wedding Reception Ideas | Tampa Bay Venue Isla Del Sol Yacht Club | DJ Grand Hemond and Associates

Tropical Waterfront St Petersburg Wedding | Isla del Sol Yacht Club

We wanted a DJ who was familiar with the venue and who was easy to work with, and who knew what they were doing.

Joseph at Grant Hemond & Associates did exactly that! We spoke the week before the wedding to go over all the song choices we had and still needed, and he kept things so easy and stress-free! He actually ended up DJing another friend’s wedding just a few weeks prior to ours, and my maid-of-honor just booked him for her wedding next year as well!

Romantic Blush, Blue, and Ivory St Pete Beach Wedding | The Don CeSar

We love an ode to classic soft rock songs and asked our DJ to have fun with the playlist during dinner service and to incorporate some of our favorite artists, think Billy Joel, Elton John, and Frankie Valli. We wanted someone who would keep the party going!

Grant Hemond & Associates came highly recommended, and Adam really matched exactly what we were looking for. Adam hit the vibe right on the head and had everyone dancing in their seats, even through dinner! To also find out that he had recorded all the speeches for us was such a nice surprise.

Tropical Peach and Pink Downtown St. Pete Wedding | The Birchwood

We knew we wanted our reception to turn into a party with lots of dancing. Grant Hemond & Assoc. was recommended by Marry Me Tampa Bay, and we read excellent reviews on other sites as well. We were really happy with their services.

Our DJ, Steve, listened to both the types of songs we wanted and respected our “Do Not Play” list. He was very open to night-of-song suggestions and kept the party going. We didn't sit down the whole night!

Vibrant Turquoise and Coral Central Florida Wedding | Streamsong Resort

There is no one better than the team at Grant Hemond & Associates! They are truly the most professional DJs in the business. We were looking for a fun and relaxed evening with lots of dancing. DJ Jody Bower understood the assignment and aced it!

My most memorable moment was our last dance to Ed Sheeran's Perfect. There were a small number of guests left, and everyone was on the dance floor. My eyes were closed as Bill and I danced and sang together. When I opened my eyes, everyone had formed a circle around us and was watching as we danced. As we turned, I could see each and every face of our friends and family. The love and happiness on their faces were completely overwhelming, and for the first time that day, I cried. Later I learned that DJ Jody had orchestrated the “circle of love” around us.

Bride and Groom First Dance with Marquee Letters Spelling LOVE | Tampa Wedding DJ Grant Hemond Associates | Planner Elegant Affairs by Design

Vibrant Tropical Clearwater Beach Wedding | Opal Sands

We wanted a DJ who wasn’t afraid to play anything and everything. We wanted to make sure all of our guests were on the dance floor all night long. Grant Hemond and Associates was recommended by our venue as one of their preferred vendors.

Modern Red South Tampa Asian Wedding | Hyde House Public Studio

We wanted wedding vendors who would thrive on creative control. With a few guidelines, we gave James King free rein over everything. We're paying him to do what he does best, and we had complete faith in that, just as long as we did not hear the Cha Cha Slide or the Cupid Shuffle, we were on board for anything. Our music range was so vast that I'm pretty sure we had an ‘Emo Cocktail Hour' with Fall Out Boy and My Chemical Romance.

Grant Hemond & Associates came highly recommended from our venue. Michelle Norman was incredibly responsive and straightforward with how their booking process worked. James King absolutely blew us away. He was incredibly receptive to our music personalities during our initial call and offered up suggestions for songs and overall vibes. On the day of, he always made sure JT and I had a drink in our hands and checked in with us throughout the night to ensure we loved the ambiance.
