I learned something very important about weddings when I lived in Ireland. Weddings are much more fun when the emphasis is on the party. Irish weddings are less about the details and more about creating a whole day of fun and celebration for the bride and groom and their guests. A typical Irish wedding starts at around noon and goes till about 4 or 5 in the morning….no joke.
I realize American weddings are very different, but I think we can learn some things from our Irish friends. To create a good party you need a combination of good food (and drinks!), great friends, a relaxed atmosphere and a full dance floor. It’s a pretty simple concept really, but in my experience, it can only be achieved when you have the right wedding vendors on your side, and a DJ is one of the most important members of the team!
Today, we are spotlighting one of Spokane’s best wedding DJs, Traks DJ Service. We asked owner, Thomas, what the philosophy of Traks was and I think his reply totally sums up what you should desire in your DJ:
“We understand that every little detail at a wedding is important to the success of the event. Even background music can have a huge positive effect on the success of an event or bring the entire energy level up so people have a great time. Having a DJ that just shows up to push play is not what we are about. We also MC and host an event and have techniques that we have learned to get people out of their seats and on the dance floor. Creating energy at an event takes more than just music and lighting, it takes someone with knowledge of events and a mindful eye. Also we try to stay very present in the planning process by attending venue walk-throughs and rehearsals if we are available.”
I think that sounds like the perfect recipe for a great party!
Thomas and his team are not only a full DJ service, they strive to give their couples the full entertaining experience.

I also found these glowing past reviews from past brides and grooms on Wedding Wire:
“Thomas was a great DJ, and an awesome value! He played the music we wanted him to play, and did a great job keeping everyone on the dance floor all night! I would hire him again in a heart beat!”
“Thomas was so great!! He read the crowd so easily and made modifications on the fly, even when the groom got hurt. He kept the crowd dancing and was so much fun and upbeat. All of our guests thought that he was fantastic and we continue to hear how much fun everybody had at the reception. Not only that, but his prices were much more competitive than we thought. We managed to have great music, a fun DJ, and some speciality lighting for less than the competition. I will be recommending Traks DJ Service to everybody!!!”
