My name is Marcel Lanoux, and I am the Owner-Operator of Nightshift Sounds, the Gulf Coast's premier Wedding & Event DJ Service.
It's difficult for me to think of myself as "just a DJ", because what I do involves so much more. I am your Master of Ceremonies, event planner/coordinator/director, music editor and programmer, sound technician, listener, creator, and in many cases, stress-reliever!
Simply stated - my goal is to raise the bar when it comes to the level of quality and service you might expect from a mobile DJ.
Here is what sets Nightshift Sounds apart from the rest:
I have been a professional DJ and Master of Ceremonies since 2004. During this time, I have provided disc jockey services for literally hundreds of wedding receptions and ceremonies, corporate functions, Mardi Gras balls, and all types of parties and special events.
Additionally, I have been a professional musician (drummer) for 20-plus years and have performed with many well-respected groups including ISIS, Voodoo Funk & Soul, and Soul Vaxxination. I have also worked with many noted entertainers, including Harry Connick, Jr., Rockin' Dopsie, Jr., Branford Marsalis, Dennis Quaid, Irma Thomas and Grammy Award-winning composer Bill Conti (Theme from Rocky).
Bottom line: I know music and entertainment!
AWARD-WINNING SERVICE Nightshift Sounds is the only DJ service in Mississippi selected by The Knot as a 2014 Best of Weddings winner. This highly-coveted industry award recognizes the top 1% of wedding vendors nationwide that demonstrate the highest level of professionalism, customer service, responsiveness, and quality.
Nightshift Sounds is also a recipient of the prestigious Wedding Wire2014 Couple's Choice Award. This honor is recognizes the top 5% of over 200,000 wedding vendors nationwide and is based on consistently positive client reviews and extensive surveys of over 750,000 newlyweds.
PERSONAL TOUCH I am extremely particular about the services that I provide, and I strive to make every event an absolutely superb experience from beginning to end. Moreover, since Nightshift Sounds is an owner-operated DJ Service, I have a vested interest in every event that I am a part of. You get the best of me!
And, because every wedding and event is different, I will meet with you personally to understand your style, ideas, and expectations. My goal is to bring your ideas to life in an event that is fun, memorable, and most of all, unique to you!
My philosophy is to always do everything the right way. That’s why Nightshift Sounds is a fully insured and licensed business and is a proud member of the Biloxi Bay Chamber of Commerce. I am 100% committed to maintaining the highest standards in every facet of my business. I believe in punctuality, responsiveness, attention to detail, a clean, professional look, courtesy to you and your guests, and ethical business practices.
And finally... PASSION
I have spent over twenty years in music and entertainment, and my passion, motivation, and enthusiasm is still as strong today as it has ever been. That’s essential and a key to the success of your event! You'll never find me just sitting there pushing buttons. I am always moving to the music, engaging the crowd, and making sure everything is flowing smoothly. I’ll probably have as much fun at your event as you will! For me, being a DJ is not just some hobby - it's what I know and what I truly love to do!
All these things add up to make Nightshift Sounds truly the Gulf Coast's PREMIERE Wedding & Event DJ!
