About
Hi, my name is Dennis. Along with my sons Dennis Jr. and Jason, we have been providing affordable, dependable DJ services since 2003. Prior to that, I have performed in various bands since the early seventies. We can proudly say that we left every wedding or party with very satisfied customers.
Your Wedding DJ
When you meet with us, you'll quickly realize that our priority is helping to make your wedding a personal experience that you will cherish for the rest of your life. We are eager to listen to what is important to you. Together, we will walk through your wedding and plan each step of the way as you want it to be. You can make all decisions or we are there for suggestions. Whatever is best for you.
With so much to plan and prepare for, you shouldn't have to worry about the DJ. We humbly realize that we only a part of a bigger picture that includes the venue, how many guests and how reserved they are, photographer and caterer considerations. We believe all concentration should be about how wonderful your day is, and how excited you and your new spouse are as you start the rest of your life together.

OPTIONS:
Live vocals/guitar; I sing and play guitar acoustically or to background tracks.
Fiddle; for something different, I can provide an hour of old time fiddle tunes before dinner.
Karaoke; (you never know)

This is what you could expect, unless you direct us differently. We would be there before your guests arrive, dressed in suit and tie, playing low volume music, and asst. soft sounds such as Kenny G. If you choose so, we will announce your wedding party and will have a cordless microphone ready if your best man would like to toast. We will continue with un-intrusive music until your dinner is completed. When you're ready, we would then dim the house lights, and play your personal wedding song and whatever you have instructed to play for the wedding party and parents. We then light the dance floor, and build a party atmosphere. We welcome all requests and have experience reading people,
doing our best to follow what people want. For example, if slow dances are the trend, we may tend to play a few more of those.
Optional Cake cutting/Bouquet throwing/garter belt/ dollar dance tradition if instructed. We play continuously until your wedding is over!
We work the crowd! Some are more laid back than others. We will watch what music seems to work best based on our experience over the years.

Great djay had everyone up and dancing all night. Accommodated all request. Also we had a last minute surprise phone call from the brides nephew who is stationed over seas with the US Army and Dennis was able to connect the call thru his speakers so all guest could hear.

Our wedding music was perfect! Dennis was super accommodating and played everything we asked him to and took suggestions from guests! We got compliments saying it’s hard to find a good wedding DJ in the area, but we found one! There were only a few glitches in music but it wasnt noticeable honestly. Would definitely recommend them!

Dennis & his son (Dennis!) did a stellar job at our wedding. He took the time out to meet with us beforehand to get an idea about exactly what we wanted — I had a whole list, including some lesser known songs — and it was truly honored. They also took our requests on-site & were able to provide! Timing & pace were all on point. Absolutely book them ASAP!

I booked Thorne music service for a very special birthday party for my autistic son, Cal. The DJ Jason was really amazing, had a great attitude and was very flexible and accommodating. He was able to set up music and lights in a tight space both quickly and professionally. We were very impressed with the quality of the light show. We also felt that Jason genuinely cared about our son and whether he was having a good time. Jason also stayed after for a few minutes to interact with our party guests, which was nice. Cal had a great time! I know because Cal gave me a big hug when we got home. For any parent of a child with autism, that show of affection is priceless.

I would highly recommend Dennis Thorne, DJ. He and his son, Dennis, served us well for our credit union's 60th Annual Meeting/Banquet at the Irem Clubhouse in Dallas, PA, on 4/16/16. They were professionals who respected the needs of our guests in terms of music selection, honoring requests, and most importantly, reading the conditions and adjusting the volume accordingly. They came to the venue on time and our guests thought we had made an excellent selection.
