Who we are, and WHAT WE DO. DJs Barrie
Ever had to make a change in your life that was so far out of your comfort zone ?
When you have that one moment where everything changed ?
That was the feeling when I retired from my day job and started the Supreme DJs Barrie.
It was crazy and scary, but normally that is the way, and became one of the best decisions I have ever made.
Dedicating all of the time our clients need to find out exactly what they want, and how we can provide that service to them.
We understand what goes thru our clients heads when they need to spend A LOT of money on their event and we take that seriously.
We take any expectations you have for a Barrie DJ service and flip it on its head!
Taking the utmost care for all of our clients is something we are truly proud of. Creating experiences that will last a life time that nobody can forget.
Never have guests leaving early, as soon as dinner is over they start looking for the door, this is NOT what we are about.
We will be there till the last minute and have everybody cheering for me.
Smashing the current standard and ensuring you and ALL of your guests have an amazing night.

Planning for your wedding day means learning a lot about traditions and practices you may never have known before. One common question we get is what the proper processional order is for the ceremony. Let us start by saying, this can be impacted by several things like your religious affiliations and venue. It is best to talk with your venue or officiant prior to your wedding day.
Are you having a traditional or religious ceremony? If you are, each religion typically has its own unique guidelines. Plan on discussing this beforehand with your officiant to learn what your specific religious tradition is. Your officiant will be the expert on this, and they’ll also be able to help you customize it where you are able to.
Grandparents: Traditionally, if you’re wanting to honor your grandparents they will enter first.
Groom’s Parents: It’s up to you if you want to honor the groom’s parents by having them walk down the aisle. They can be seated after all the guests and before the mother of the bride.
Mother of the Bride: The mother of the bride is the last person seated before the officiant, groom and best man take their places at the altar. She can walk alone or be escorted by her son, son-in-law or another relative. She is seated on the left side in the first row.
Officiant, Groom & Best Man: Enter the ceremony venue and stand at the altar.
Bridesmaids and Groomsmen: Walk down the aisle in pairs. You can also have them enter individually if you prefer.
Maid/Matron of Honor: Walks down the aisle alone.
The Ring Bearer(s) and Flower Girl(s): Your little ones can either walk together or the ring bearer can enter before the flower girl(s).
The Bride and Father of the Bride: The bride walks on her father’s right side, traditionally.
If you are not having a religious ceremony or are getting married at a non-church venue, feel free to take what you like and change what you don’t. Ultimately, your wedding day is up to you. In the end, you’re getting married and that is what matters the most.
Want to make sure you are on the cutting edge with the top wedding trends for 2020 ?
January marked the beginning of a new year, new decade, and new style of wedding. And we’ve never been more excited! As couples begin planning their perfect day and peak wedding season quickly approaches there are a few trends that we can be sure to see in 2020.
Showing off the bridal party’s unique style and personality. Gone are the days of girls in matching, ill-fitting dresses that scream “BRIDESMAID.” We’re seeing a new wave of unique and personalized styles that give your bridesmaids the chance to feel comfortable, and look beautiful. These are the girls you love the most! Each of them is different, so let their dresses represent that! Our personal favorite for spring and summer weddings is an all white bridal party! Which also looks amazing for our second trend of 2020… bright, beautiful and locally grown flowers!
The whimsical bouquet has become the norm for weddings over the past couple years. But the movement has shifted from a soft, muted, blush and cream palate and we’re now seeing bright beautiful blooms filling the bouquets of our 2020 brides! Whether you choose flowers that are meaningful to your relationship, spark memories of summers spent outdoors, or just love the pop of color, these arrangements are sure to bring excitement and splendor to your perfect day!
Locally sourced and sustainable options. Along with the bright floral arrangements we’re also seeing couples opt for locally grown and in season flowers! What a beautiful testament for the love of the area you’ve chosen for your wedding. Flowers aren’t the only locally sourced options to enjoy. Farm to table food makes for a fresh, delicious and memorable menu that your guests are sure to enjoy! Favors (and flavors) from the local area- apples, peaches, homemade jams, or soaps made at a local farm are all wonderful favors that your guests will actually enjoy! They add a special touch to your wedding and are a beautiful way to say thank you to guests and pay homage to resources in your area.
Incorporate meaningful and fun aspects into your wedding! It can be a favorite song while you walk down the aisle, a special aspect in your ceremony, like taking communion, handfasting or having a guest read a beloved poem. Pick a signature drink for cocktail hour, or sneak in your favorite hors d’oeuvres. During the reception, invite guests to join you in a fun dance, or pass your rings around and ask for blessings from your guests. Remember, this day is about you as a couple! Invite the people you love the most, and enjoy those precious moments as they come to celebrate and support you as you begin your life together as Mr. and Mrs.
Most importantly, your wedding day should be your own! Often times brides get bogged down with feeling like they need to check every box on the traditional list of wedding to-dos. Or worse, they need to please or change their dream to fulfill the desires of loved ones and friends. Please don’t! Your wedding day is meant for celebrating the beautiful love between you and your partner! Out of everyone in the entire universe, you found each other! You’ve spent time growing, learning and falling deeply in love with one another! Your relationship is unique, and precious and your wedding should be a radiant display of who you are and what your love means.
So I recently did a video shoot, and wrote a little script. After showing some people, they all told me I needed to tell everyone!
So here’s a little story about how Supreme DJ’s came into existence. 🙂
Let me know how the DJ story is in the comments!
Music has been my heart and soul since I was a kid. Didn’t matter what was going on in my life, as long as I had my music, everything was all good. I’ve been DJing for over 15 years. I’ve been working almost every weekend since I was like 19 years old. Long nights, getting home from 4 to 6-7 am, every weekend, then getting right back up and going in to work the next day. Just grinding all day and night. Eventually there was a point where I had enough of the clubs and wondered how I could progress in my career, I was sick of the clubs but I know I couldn’t quit, music is in my blood – I’ve been doing this since I was a kid, there was no way I could just quit. And than I finally figured out I could start doing weddings and private event’s and that’s when everything finally took off. I was able to quit my day job, finally make this my real career. And because I went from a club DJ, to an event DJ, just gave me a different skill set, I was able to provide a service that was basically unheard of before. I am Truly able to take events to that next level and immediately put myself into a league of my own.
My favourite part of the night is that one moment – when out of nowhere – the dancefloor just gets packed. There’s that one song that just sets the party off. And my goal is just to keep that energy moving the entire night. Have the entire room, everyone just let go and get lost in the music, and just enjoy the moment for as long as it lasts, and not worry about anything else but dancing the entire night away.
Being able to read the entire room is one of my super powers, be able to play music for EVERYBODY. I always like to start super family friendly; I know there are all types of different age’s in the room, and than I kind of slowly bridge into the more modern stuff. I love playing mash up’s too. You’re bringing the old music together remixed with the new. And When you see both the young guys and the old guys nodding their head in unisence to the same song, I know I’m headed in the right direction and were gearing up for a real good night – bringing all the different generations together. Everyone’s just going to let loose, relax and have a good time. That’s something I’m really proud of and is really rewarding to me.
They say motion creates emotion, and emotion creates memories, so what we are really doing is “creating memories that will last forever for you and all of your guests.”
A party that will never be forgotten.
We Take your expectations and smash them, creating moments and experiences you didn’t even know was possible. We pride ourselves in being different than every other DJ company in the world.
How to plan your wedding with the best seating arrangement !
Where To Put The DJ During Your Event – CRUCIAL INFORMATION
This is Andrew Lindley with the Supreme DJ’s, and I’m just here dropping some CRUCIAL information today you for next event!
WHERE TO PUT THE DJ ?!?
We all know the Seating arrangement is important. And while your creating you seating arrangement there Is a SUPER IMPORTANT step you don’t want to miss. You have to figure out who will sit close to the dj, and who you need away from the DJ. You’ve invited all your people, friends, family, and the room Is quickly shrinking, so you just start putting whoever – where ever.
This is NOT a good idea!!!!!
Our DJ setup space quickly starts shrinking as well, and we need to set up our speakers.
They control everything. You’re toasts, speeches, grand entrances and music for dancing. Later on in the night it’s not that important, but for all of dinner, this is crucial.
A everyone is taking their seats, we find out that grandma is in front of the speaker. HUGE FOUL. Before the salad is served, she starts complaining that it’s too loud, please turn it down. Of course we have to oblige her, And now everyone suffers during dinner as no one can hear the music
When you’re working with your DJ, definitely include them in the floor plan so you can work out BEFORE its an issue, the best positioning for them.
Think about placing all of the younger people near the DJ. They are able to interact with the DJ, talk, request all night and considering they will be you’re main source of a dancing crowd, it’s great to build up that interaction first! Make them feel comfortable so they are ready for the dance floor as soon as it opens!
Grandma is definitely important, but you want to put her off to the back or middle so she’s not getting blasted by the music during dinner. She’s not going to be out there twerking all night – hopefully, I’ve definitely seen some crazier things !
Most of the time, they won’t be out there dancing all night, the older crowd is much more interested in talking with family and catching up with everyone, so please just seat them somewhere further away.
Allows us to turn up the music, lets the sound fill out thru the whole room so everyone can hear it. If not, it’ll be an extremely quiet dinner.
I’m Andrew Lindley, with the Supreme DJs, and if your in the GTA or Barrie area and are looking to take your event to the next level, give us a shout! SupremeDJs.ca or shoot me an email directly at Drew@SupremeDJs.ca
After months of planning, your wedding day arrives and seems to fly by in the blink of an eye. This is why it’s so important for you to live in the moment and make the best of every second.
Here are our 10 secrets to an epic wedding reception!:
1) Don’t plan too many events during the reception
The traditional formalities such as introductions, first dance, parent dances, dinner service, toasts & cake cutting take quite a bit of time. Your time for dancing can be pretty limited if there are too many additional events added to your timeline.
2) Let the DJ Do Their Thing
Prior to hiring your entertainment, make sure you research and select a professional that you trust. Your DJ should know how to really put on a show and engage your guests. So don’t add anymore to your plate by trying to create the entire playlist for the night. Other than your special dances and entrance/exit songs, give the DJ 5-10 additional songs you want played. From there your DJ will read your crowd to create the right vibe.
3) Avoid HANGRY Wedding Guests
Make your hungry guests happy by keeping the food flowing. Wedding days are long. You are going non-stop and your guests are too. Serve the first course as early as possible. Also consider having a late night snack. Appetizer sized munchies like sliders or french fries are sure to give your guests a second wind. Other great choices include extra desserts or salty snacks like chips and popcorn.
4) Set the Mood With Lighting.
The easiest and most cost effective way to transform your reception venue is with lighting. Uplighting, texture lights, string lights, candles and lanterns all create ambiance and add warmth to your wedding. Dim lighting with a couple of LED foam batons makes for a pretty fun time too! 😉
5) Keep the bar close and entertainment even closer.
If the space allows, keep your bar and other entertainment in the same room as the dance floor. It’s no secret that cocktails encourage guests to loosen up. If the bar is in another room you will lose quite a few lively dancers. Your photo booth should also be in the same room so that guests don’t miss out on any important moments throughout the night. Finally, have your DJ right next to the dance floor, not in a corner. An interactive DJ will make several trips to the dance floor engaging with your guests. You’d hate to have them running across the room.
6) Keep Those Dancing Feet Happy.
Every bride and most female guests want to have stunning shoes on the wedding day. Unfortunately the most stunning shoes are usually the least comfortable. They look great, but they are not for dancing! So bring some flat shoes or flip flops to give your feet a break. If you have room in your budget to spare, you can provide flip-flops, flats or colorful socks for your guests too.
7) Timing is Key
Creating a wedding day timeline helps you stay organized and on track when your day arrives. The more detailed you can make the plan, the better. It should start as early as “hair and make-up” and go all the way to the reception. Allow yourself an extra 15 minutes to account for any unforeseen traffic or hold ups. Also, a copy of the timeline should be provided to anyone involved in the wedding; vendors, wedding party and parents. Your reception timeline should be reviewed with your DJ because as the MC it’s their job to ensure that it flows seamlessly. Most importantly, stick to the timeline as best you can. Starting the ceremony or reception too far off schedule can frustrate your anxious guests.
8) Final Check-In 1-2 Weeks Prior to Your Big Day
Have a final meeting or at least a phone call to confirm every detail with your venue event manager and other vendors. You don’t want any surprises or even questions on the day of. Final payments, final guest counts, table placements, timing and any other day-of logistics should be confirmed. If you are not hiring a day of coordinator make sure your vendors have a point of contact (not you or your new spouse). Your vendors will communicate with them if needed on your wedding day. If anything goes wrong it should be fixed before you ever even hear about it 😉
9) Make A Grand Get Away
Give your farewell just as much attention as your entrance. At this point the remaining guests have partied the night away with you and stayed until the last song, why not treat them to something special? Sky lanterns, sparklers, bubbles, and even glow sticks for your guests to wave are just a few great choices. The perfect send off will leave your guests in absolute wonder and in awe of what an epic night they just had.
10) Set A Good Example
When I see a packed dance floor, typically the bride and groom are right in the center of the crowd. The guests take their cues from the couple. If your guests see you smiling, eating, drinking & dancing…guess what, they will too! So, show them how its done and enjoy each special moment of your big day.

I have heard this story, OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER…………………………..
It’s a month before your wedding, everything is going great, and than you go to reach out to your DJ…. No response… Try again a few day’s later, no response. Eventually IF you get a response, you find out the DJ has booked another event.
I HONESTLY can’t tell you HOW MANY TIMES I HAVE HEARD THIS.It literally just happened 4 times THIS PASSED WEEKEND. Now I’m not knocking anyone, but you NEEDa good REPUTABLE DJ. And not even just for this one reason.
The amount of horror stories I have heard about the DJ showing up, dressed in shorts and a T-Shirt, baseball cap, and I can go on, but I’ll spare you the pain. And this is onlyreason number #2.
Reason number 3, and that is the party. What everyone has came for and can’t wait for ! People came to PARTY! Drink and have a good time. The amount of time’s I have been told the DJ played what he wanted, didn’t listen to you at all. You spent weeks creating the perfect playlists just to have the DJ play the golden oldies all night. Half the guests have left, and the other half are asleep at the table.
At Supreme DJ’s, we take YOUR playlist, and curate the night according to exactly what YOU WANT from the event. Seamless transitions, party starters, and make everyone get up and dance all night! Music come’s from the soul, and it’s about taking a room full of people, creating energy and connection between everyone and taking them to a much higher place. Once that energy goes out, you gently bring them back down, and lay them to rest for the night.
And the DJ you bring can either MAKE or BREAK the event. PLEASEchoose wisely.
