Music Always Makes The Party

The "Professional" ARL Cast
All Requests Live DJ & Pro Audio service rates are $49/hr (Monday-Thursday) and $65/hr (Friday-Sunday).  Holidays quoted upon request.  Our hourly costs begin from when you need us to be set up by, and end when the music stops (no setup/teardown charges).  The 4-hour minimum includes:

Professional DJ: This is what we do.  All of our DJ’s are Portland-based ARL employees (not contractors or a referral service), and have extensive training on how to engage your guests and get people on the dance floor and having a great time.  We can “MC” and make appropriate announcements, engaging as much or as little as you like (check out our 25+ google reviews ).

Our standard setup with optional 4-Bar lighting (at a Grad Party)
Rig:  If you’re not into tech-speak, you can definitely skip this section.  Our standard setup includes two Main 12” commercial PA speakers on stands (good volume for up to about 50 indoor guests).  We can scale to meet any size; see below.  We run two devices of legal, licensed, and (generally) radio-edited music from all eras and styles.  We do not rely solely on the internet streaming; we bring 10,000+ songs with us (some other DJ services only stream music because it’s cheap).  The music set is customized exclusively to you and your event.  In addition, we also include a wireless handheld microphone that can be used by anyone.

Requests: We take real time requests ahead of time, on cards, and verbally (and please let us know if you do not want Uncle Bob to keep requesting “Skynyrd” all night).

The ARL Band set up with expanded lighting in Depoe Bay for a 2015 Summer Wedding
Cover Band Available:  The award-winning “All Requests Live” cover band and/or acoustic “duo” is also available.  We play songs at you and your guest’s request (see it here ).  

Email and Phone coordination: We will get all the information we need from you prior to the event at no additional charge.  We can meet for a “planning meeting” at your request.

Great references, incorporated and insured.  No deposit required:  Yes, you read that correctly. Just a confirmation email back with your contact phone number and the time/address of the event. Payment due at the completion of your event; cash and cards happily accepted.

Our standard setup with 12" Mains
No cancellation penalty:  Things change; we get it.  If something comes up, just let us know as soon as you are able.

We do not ask for a deposit to book the date (just a confirmation email with your contact info, event time/date, location and the word “Yes” somewhere). 

Thank you for your interest in ARL.

Yep.  It's going to be a fun summer here in the Northwest.

Jeff and Jody's Wedding was Just Jammin'

"All Requests Live" is known for both DJ cast and our Live Band of musicians.  A key difference is that we requests all night long.  Yes, actual song requests.  Our opinion is that your guests want to hear and dance to the music that THEY want to listen to.  We founded our entertainment company on this premise, and frankly, people seem to like it... a lot.

Case in point:  We were privileged to be invited to Jeff & Jody's wedding this last summer.  This was an AMAZING location in Southern Oregon in a resort setting.  The happy couple had family and friends ranging from pre-school to retirees. How do you pick songs that will satisfy both the Boomers and the teens? I'm glad you asked.  We combined our signature DJ services for the "house" music, and the All Requests Live Band took the stage after dark.  The band was eager hear from the wedding guests which songs everyone wanted to dance to (Journey, Cee Lo Green, Maroon 5, Pat Benatar, you get the idea), and a good time was had by all.

The stage and dance floor were perfect, there were twinkle lights draped over the dance floor, and our stage lighting "dancing" the night away.  We wished we could have played all night long.  We even got in a rare "photo booth" shot of the ARL Team.

"Let me just tell you again how much we loved having you at our wedding.  You were the perfect choice and I would recommend you to anyone.  We received so many compliments on the reception and the atmosphere, and you were a huge part of that.  The music selection was perfect, and your performance was amazing.  We really enjoyed ourselves."  -Jody

Congrats and thanks again to you both.

Whether you need excellent DJ services or a Live Band (Duo/Trio/Full Band), ARL would be happy to make your night memorable.

Jodi and the Jets

Here's a new experience:  ARL gets the pleasure of putting on a great reception for Jodi's wedding this September.  That's the biggest news.  The slightly less big (albeit cool) news, is that we get to play music at the Evergreen Air And Space Museum where the Spruce Goose is!  Gotta admit, if you're going to have a wedding, take Howard Hughes advice: go big.

Alex to Wed in August!

The Oregon Golf Club is an amazing spot to start off a life together.  It's beautiful and breathtaking, and then there's the golf club too!  We've had the pleasure of helping usher in the celebrations on many a night here, and will do it again for Alex and his fiance in August.

Congrats, Alex.
