Monogram & Slide Show at the Binghamton Club w/ Mobile Wedding DJ Johnny Only

Binghamton Wedding DJ


This was a beautiful fall-themed reception complete with uplights to compliment the colors that Michelle and Mike had chosen. My projector and flat screen filled out the visual effects.

We used a slide show on the elevated flat screen to enhance the impact and memorability of the parents’ dances. Pictures of the bride growing up were shown during the father-daughter dance and pictures of the groom growing up were shown during the mother-son dance.

The flat screen was high enough and strategically positioned so that the guests could see the slide show just above the dancing couple’s heads. That way, family and friends could enjoy them both simultaneously.

Seeing memories of the past on the flat screen while watching the couple dance in front of it drew oohs and aahs of appreciation along with laughter and a few tears.

The Binghamton Club has a perfect wall space for the projected monogram, but the monogram can also be projected on the dancefloor by mounting the projector on a light stand up high and pointing it down to the dancefloor per the following photo.

As far as the music selection, Michelle and Mike left it up to me to read the crowd which is where a DJ’s experience and skill level really shows. The guests loved it! I am equally comfortable with couples who give me a list of favorites to work in for maximum fun and dancing spontenaity.

At this reception, there was a pretty good mix of ages, so I worked hard to choose songs that the majority of them would know and enjoy.

They just kept dancing all night!

The Secret to 60+ Years of Wedded Bliss

In my role of Wedding DJ/MC Johnny Only, I am often asked to celebrate marital longevity by doing an “Anniversary Elimination Dance.” This is a slow dance just for married couples.

As the song progresses, I have people that have been married for a certain number of years sit down while the couples that have been married longer remain dancing.

I keep raising the number until there is only one couple (the longest married) left on the dance-floor. Sometimes the bride and groom offer them a flower(s) but every time,

I ask longest married couple to share their secret of wedded bliss with the newlyweds.

The secret to a happy marriage
The secret to a long & happy marriage is like a homemade casserole: Only the people who make it really know what goes into it.

The best answer I ever heard was that, “A happy marriage is like a homemade casserole; Only the people that make it really know what goes into it.”

My dancing lights are in the foreground of this picture. They liven up the dance floor by moving, changing color and ‘dancing’ to the music.

The uplights are in the background. You can see the plasma screen on the left.

This was the Maine Endwell High School Prom. We showed photos of the seniors, courtesy of the yearbook committee, on the plasma screen and projected their “Spartan” mascot emblem on the dancefloor.

The uplights ran patterns of blue and gold to match the school colors.

It was huge success! Administrators told me it was the best prom they’d had in years.

The class president was so pleased, he wrote me this note of testimonial below:

Johnny Only did a fantastic job as the DJ and MC for our High School Prom. He played a great mix of both our requests and popular hits. Johnny Only knew his audience and kept the Prom rocking for hours with music that we really wanted to listen to and dance to. His speaker system is very powerful and easily filled our large venue with sound. His system has an excellent range, with crystal clear vocals and deep pounding bass. It was everything that one would expect out of a professional DJ and more. As an MC, Johnny did an excellent job of announcing our Prom Court and kept the Prom flowing smoothly all night. His up-lighting synchronized with the music and created a really cool unique atmosphere that changed for each song and served as the perfect backdrop to our simple decorations.. The projected monogram and TV picture slide show were cool additions that also really helped to personalize and commemorate the event.

Thank you Johnny Only; you made our Prom night the best that it could be.
