Breaking the Mold
From here on you can forget about what other DJ companies look, sound and make you feel… Over 70% of brides in hindsight wish they had done more research before choosing a DJ. Pick us apart and you’ll find that very few can compare. The person you call, email, and with which you meet, is your DJ. It’s not a salesman that passes your event off to someone else.
Sgt Brown’s Other Services
Although creating and playing music to create a certain mood is mostly what we do, there are a variety of other services which we offer. Because we see so many different types of events, it just made sense to add some of these other offerings to our clients. You may not have known that DJs offer these kinds of services, but we do!
FlashFotoFun! is a sister company to Sgt Brown Entertainment and Sound. We found a desperate need in the Fresno area for party services that were more than just run-of-the-mill. Other companies in the area couldn’t fulfill the need at an acceptable level of competency. So… we set out to fill that need with the same service minded attitude that is in Sgt Brown. If you have a party, we can make it exceptional. Contact us to find out how!

Statistics published in Bride & Groom Magazine in 2003
Rates for the DJ industry vary greatly, ranging from as little as a couple hundred bucks to $3,500 or more with an average 4-6 hour event around $1,200. The best price is not always the best deal, especially if you are planning a wedding. As an example, one company may have a package that is $795 and includes only 4 hours of music. Often times that DJ can end up costing more than the all-inclusive DJ, where the total number of hours can’t be known for sure ahead of time.
A full-service DJ company will normally invest 20-30 hours in your special event but it may appear that you are only paying for “4-6 hours”. Consultations, music purchasing, programming and editing, preparation, rehearsal, set-up and tear-down, education and other business-related endeavors add up to the overall success of your special occasion.

What Client’s Say
Dan, Richard and Pat went above and beyond anything we could ever expect!! From the very beginning of our professional relationship, he was completely on top of everything, from answering our emails/questions almost immediately, to soothing any nerves we had regarding our wedding day. His confidence absolutely held up on our wedding night. We got comments like “this is the most organized wedding i’ve ever been to! Everything went so smoothly!” Because of their guidance, no one had any idea that our ceremony rehearsal took all of 10 minutes. From the moment our guests arrived, to the toasting, to the cake cutting, they held our audience captive, made sure everyone knew what was going on, and got them moving on the dance floor! He played only the music we requested (60’s, 70’s, a little bit of 80’s) in addition to “must play songs,” and he played them EXACTLY when they needed to be played. His timing was spot on, and the music was totally rockin’! The lighting and equipment was top notch, and the photo booth was a huge party hit. Our favorite part of the evening was when they surprised us with our vows mixed in to our last dance. It was the final touch on our magical night that made everything so, so perfect. We would recommend Dan and Richard 100% to ANYONE who needs the best wedding entertainment at a value that is so beyond what they pay. Dan, Thank You again, so much! You were the best!
“Wow! Hiring Dan Brown and Sgt Brown Entertainment was one of the BEST decisions and investments I made for my daughter’s wedding and reception. The DJ should be one of the top priorities in planning a wedding. I never realized this until I planned my first daughter’s wedding. Dan was helpful, caring and positive from the first time we met up until the end of the wedding evening. He listened, shared his ideas and expertise and personalized the music and evening. His knowledge, professionalism and personality are priceless. He loves what he does and has a natural talent. My daughter wanted “games” at her reception. I had never heard of this before but Dan said “no problem” and had some great ideas. He had the bride and groom play the “shoe game” and the “guess your wife” game. It was fun for the guests to get to know the bride and groom better. It was a lot of fun, yet tactful. My daughter commented that her wedding was “perfect” that she couldn’t have asked for anything better. She was happy and everyone had a wonderful evening and I credit a big part of that to Dan and his services. Yes! Hire Dan, you will have peace of mind and be so glad you did! He is worth every penny!!”
“DJ Dan was awesome. He was extremely professional and very involved with the planning of the event. He really went out of his way to make our day special. He offered to come to the rehersal in order to better plan for the wedding cermony. We were 1.5 hours drive from him, but he said it was no problem! Dan helped us choose our songs and pick out the vibe for the reception. He also helped make our ceremony special by suggesting that we tie a knot to symbolize our on joining forever. It was so nice to have someone who knew what they were doing, he made suggestions that we would have never thought of until it would have been too late. Dan was great help with the little things you don’t think about, but have a big impact in the wedding. Oh, and his dj skills are awesome too! Everybody was dancing the entire time. I would recommend Dan with 2 thumbs WAY up.”
“Richard and Dan were dolls! We loved their ability to read people and know what they wanted. We were lost on the music and they were able to direct us on what kinds of music to use for each part of our day. The coolest part was the game section of the night. They had our guests rolling on the floor! (some literally)”
