albanian/american dj NY

So I am getting married in October. I have one possible DJ, but would like to shop around. My fiancee is Albanian and I am American so need someone who can do both. it is too difficult to explain to a DJ which Albanian music to play, so would prefer someone with a lot of experience. Any advice would help!!!

  • Hi,

    I am an American-Albanian and my Fiance is American. The Albanian music was also a conceern to me. I am going with Jimmy Dee specifically Rich who is very knowedgable with Albanian music. The songs are very long so I'm cutting the Albanian music down to about 5-6 songs. Good Luck
  • HI, I just got married this past July.  My hubby is Albanian.  We used Planet DJ's in Yonkers and we made a a few CDS with Albanian music.  They did a great job and probably still have the CD's!!!

  • I'm marrying an albanian too :)  I was wondering, could you give me a few songs that i can use to surprise him during the ceremony!  It will be nice for his family too, as they are new to the US and barely know any english.  Would be nice for them to enjoy some music familiar to them!

    thanks!

  • ahhhh, the Albanian parents they can be difficult to handle & I am Albanian,  lol. Like anyone difficult you encounter in life you have to stand your ground, don't bend over backwards to make anyone happy. Unfortunately some of the older Albanian women have a very old fashion mentality which makes it difficult to connect to them. They think that non Albanian's are foreign but they seem to forget we are all human with feelings. Good luck ladies, I definetly feel for you all.
