Music Now DJ's started as a one person operation and continued to grow in the early 90's to 15 employees. It employed 3 full time office staff and one part time staff member to organize and process all the events and keep the DJs on time and happy. In 1990 Music Now was the first company in Santa Cruz to offer karaoke sing along in a large screen format. We also provide sound systems and music for wedding ceremonies. Besides weddings we perform at class reunions, birthdays, schools, corporate holiday parties, Karaoke and many other party related events.
