Music of the Times, by J. Hock is not your average DJ Service.  We offer not only music services, but also comprehensive Master of Ceremony services and entertainment for all our events.  This allows YOU to WORRY LESS about your event and more about enjoying time with your friends and family.  We coordinate with all you vendors to ensure that everything occurs according to your plan.

We are excited to be part of the 2016 Richmond Wedding Crashers Tour on February 7th from 10am  to 2pm.  Ever wanted to crash a wedding to see what vendors are like during the real deal?  This is the perfect opportunity to do just that.  Come see all the great vendors and us at the Quirk Hotel in downtown Richmond VA.  Can’t wait to show you what we can do for your event!

Brief Music of the Times History

Jim and Jeremy began DJing in college. They created individual radio shows that eventually came to be known as the ” fuel” that started the weekend. They also DJed at campus fraternity parties during the semester on a regular basis. In 1997, Music of the Times was officially established after years of requests to do special events. Originally based out of Williamsport PA, Music of the Times was moved to Richmond VA in 2001. Since, Music of the Times has grown to service any event and occasion that requires entertainment.

Adding color brings life and extra excitement into any venue and can completely change not only the look, but the entire feel of your event.  If you can imagine it, we can do it! Most brides consider lighting design just as important as flowers and decor. We can’t wait to show you what we can do.
