Nieman Marcus, Morgan’s Hotel, Red Bull, and Toyota have something in common: they all have solicited the services of Arizona Deejay Company. The key to developing relationships with such disparate clients might be the impeccable professionalism on which these musical maestros pride themselves. Most of the company’s DJs have had prestigious careers in radio, nightclubs, and the arena circuit, and they can administer thumping beats for gatherings with 100 guests or 1,000 guests. As a member of the American Disc Jockey Association, Arizona Deejay Company not only connects wedding planners and prom committees with top-notch sound experts but also with high-end lighting gear, PA systems, and software capable of lacing the latest hip-hop hit with a Dickens audiobook.
A full-service sound, lighting, and entertainment company, Ambience Sound & Lighting transforms everyday venues into bona fide party spaces. The company dispatches its audio engineers to all types of gatherings—weddings, backyard bashes, festivals, concerts, corporate events—and outfits them with high-quality equipment. In every case, Ambience Sound & Lighting sets up and takes down the equipment and assigns an employee to remain onsite to ensure everything runs more smoothly than the best man's rendition of "I Will Always Love You."
At iMemories, the expert in-house pixelators have all the tools and tech-savvy spirit required to alter the fate of fading VHS tapes and unruly reels of film. No matter which medium they’re preserving, the iMemories process provides simplified transferal of all materials as well as straightforward, step-by-step pricing. First, customers pack materials in their own box or select a SafeShip box ($19.99 for an 11” x 11” x 5” box), which is then delivered to the home, filled with tapes or reels, and then shipped back to iMemories for digital conversion (video tapes, $9.99 each; film, $9.99 for each 50 feet without sound). Then, after the iMemories staff immortalizes the footage in a digital format, customers can preview their work using a private online account—an account that also allow customers to edit and customize their content, right down to the DVD packaging. Once the online preview reaches peachy approval, iMemories then allows users to place orders for delivered DVD copies ($9.99 each; DVD holds up to two hours of video).
To the staff at Bounce It Forward, the only thing sweeter than scenes of kids zooming down inflatable slides, careening across bounce houses, and exploring Justin Bieber–themed castles is helping others. It's with this mindset that it donates 10% of its rental proceeds to charity. And the staff members put that donation in their customers' hands, allowing them to choose from noble causes such as the Peoria Unified School District and Operation Christmas Child. To complete party scenes, the rental company also offers concession machines that fuel kids with freshly popped popcorn and cotton candy.
