10/10 would reccomend working with Neal on your special day. I worked on the Vendor team with him on a wedding as the Wedding Coordinator, and he is by far one of the most professional DJs my team has ever worked with. He showed up on time, answered emails promptly, and was flexible when changes needed to be made on the spot. Neal is amazing, and was key to the vendor team and our overall success. Would reccomend everytime. More...

DJ Neal was amazing for our wedding. He kept everyone on the floor and kept the flow of the evening on track. He even took requests from our guest and provided plenty of ideas from everything from cake cutting to the exit song. DJ Neal was a great choice at the right price. I would definitely recommend him!

Neal is very easy to work with and planned everything with us long distance. He guided us through the wedding and played everything we asked of him. His lighting design was absolutely perfect and just what we talked about with him. Neal went with the flow and provided us with everything we asked of him and more. I highly recommend him to anyone needing a DJ for an event! More...

Neal was an outstanding member of our team! He was friendly, flexible, and fun. He played "5000 Candles in the Wind" from Parks and Rec and our friends went wild! He did the shoe game with questions he had already and it was a hit. He checked with me before playing a song requested by a guest because it was on our Do Not Play List. He went above and beyond and we reccomend him most highly! More...

DJ

My husband and I celebrated our birthdays with an 80s theme. Neal Keller was our DJ and he was awesome! The music was the best, people were dancing the whole time. He also provided lighting and video. All our friends were asking about him and even after the party people are saying how great he was. Definitely recommend Neal Keller! More...

DJ Neal made our wedding perfect! He communicated his arrival time the day of the wedding and was on site early which put us at ease, made the announcements and introductions, played all our requests and played a great selection of music for our crowd. He also provided great lighting, and was courteous and professional. Also, his rates are the best in the area. We would recommend Neal for any special event! More...

We heard about Neal (EightiesNite) from a friend back in 2011. He was the DJ for many of the HOA events. We hired Neal for my husband's 40th birthday party. Our experience with Neal was outstanding from start to finish! He is always professional and goes the extra mile to accommodate guests. Since my husband's 40th party, we have hired Neal for birthday parties, going away parties, etc. We also recommended Neal to friends and they have all been happy with his services. We will definitely keep hiring Neal for upcoming events & continue recommending him to our friends and family. More...

We hired Neal to DJ our wedding on April 20, 2018. From the initial meeting, he was extremely professional, friendly, and knowledgable. Throughout the planning process he stayed in touch with us and helped us craft our playlist. Neal also drove an hour out of his way to meet us at our venue to do a walkthrough before the event.

He definitely knows his stuff, and asked us a lot of questions about what we wanted in terms of music, sound and lighting. He was even able to set up a 2nd booth in another room for our cocktail hour.

In addition to playing great music all night, he was also a fantastic MC, making announcements throughout the night and encouraging folks to get on the dance floor.

The price was excellent too, we shopped around and Neal provides the absolute best value for the price. We will definitely be working with Neal for future events.

1000% Happy with Neal. We booked Neal for a birthday party, and he knocked it out of the park! He was a referral from a friend, and we are so glad we used him. We actually ended up using him for another event a few months later, and again - he was so great to work with.

Q&As

It's really about being engaged - with the music, with the vibe, with the flow of the event. I'm very approachable and request friendly, and I tend to favor inclusive selections. I find that reading the crowd is about listening to them directly, and also about paying attention to how they respond to each track.

I'm definitely a party DJ. I'm about lifting up the mood and creating good feelings. I like to mix, to blend rhythms together, but I'm careful not to be obsessive about it. I don't want my sets to be monotonous, so I like to break up the beat every now and then with changes in tempo, genre, and energy."

My big specialty is retro oriented sets. I've hosted one of DC's longest running retro parties for almost 25 years now (80's Dance Party), and I know the era very well. I've done some really killer Disco sets, as well as 90's Retro parties. I keep up on the latest hits as well, and have done numerous events for Millenials, kids, and young adults.

Bringing the joy and fulfillment I get from music to others, in all kinds of forms and styles, and across all kinds of different demographics and age ranges!

I really love the entrepreneurial lifestyle and I've found I have a lot to offer people through music, lighting, sound, video, and related event services. Plus, I'm a natural techie type when it comes to A/V presentation technology. I love setting it up and making awesome shows come to life!

I'm dedicated and driven, friendly and approachable, and very reliable. I take a great amount of pride in what I do, I won't let you down for your event. I'm very knowledgable about popular music going back several decades, and I've got all the technology and expertise necessary to put together outstanding entertainment packages. At a great value too!

Services

I have a variety of configurations I can offer, I can also do multiple systems for covering different areas (example: ceremony, reception, cocktail hour).

I have a great selection of special effect lighting geared towards dance floor areas.

I have a 23 fixture uplighting package that can do a variety of colors. Great for livening up the perimeter of the room!
