WHY HIGHER GROUND WEDDINGS
ARE THE BEST WEDDINGS.
PERIOD.

Some DJs are great at mixing, while others excel in their speaking skills. Some are masters of lighting design, music selection, and presentation while others prefer to focus on personalization, production, or event planning.

 

At Higher Ground, our focus is to excel at all of the above so that we can provide the gold standard in event entertainment. 

We are a passionate and hardworking team of DJs, Event Hosts and dancers all working together towards one common goal: to create incredible entertainment experience & employment opportunities. It's why we got started in this business, and it's what keeps us aiming higher.

We have been to a lot of weddings over the years, and heard a lot of wedding DJs up and down the West Coast. Naturally, we have seen the good, the bad and the ugly. All of this informs our style today, and helps us reach for something higher, delivering a unique experience to our wedding DJ clients.
