Craig, Katrina and Drop the Needle Entertainment welcome you to our very first blog post! Drop the Needle Entertainment was born with an easy, uncomplicated labour in May 2013, by seasoned DJ and Event Planner parents, Craig McNeil and Katrina Cain. DTNE may be in its infancy, but Craig and Katrina have over 15 years of event, public relations, public speaking and DJ experience.


It is now the Winter of 2015 and we have worked and are continuing to work with some amazing venues including Tigh Na Mara, Eaglequest Golf Club and The Shady Rest in Parksville and Qualicum, BC, Crown Isle, Mt Washington and the Coast Westerly Hotel in Courtenay, BC to name just a few. We have met some wonderful decorators, photographers, and caterers who go well above and beyond to create magical events for their clients and we really look forward to seeing what 2016 has in store for us.


We want these blog posts to be interesting and relevant to everyone. As such, we will include interesting little insider DJ tidbits to help you in planning your next events. Here are some of our most popular songs from this past wedding season.
