NVision Hyping Up Prom Crowd Albany

Interactive hype Djs

At NWN Entertainment we know how to get a crowd hyped up! We can keep a crowd of any size jamming without feeling obtrusive!

We recently used them for the Burnt Hills Ballston Lake Homecoming pep rally and dance and they did not disappoint, in fact they had student and staff alike saying both events were one of the best in recent memory due to the addition of NWN Entertainment. The gentlemen who run this business are professional, organized, communicative, collaborative, timely and fun. Not only were they competitively priced, we found they offered more bang for your buck with their upgrades than other DJ services we have used or looked into. And again they were more professional than most companies we have used or looked into as well. They showed up on time if not early and were in constant communication with us regarding our wants and needs for the event. The students found them approachable during the events and willing to address any requests if possible.

see nwn entertainment in action! 

 Don’t just take our word for it! Here’s a look at what our School Dances look like! Trust us though, VIDEOS DONT DO A JUSTICE! You really have to attend one of our Homecomings, Proms, or Events to truly witness the level of energy we bring!

20 minutes of uninterrupted footage of how we opened the biggest prom in the 518

This is an unedited, 100% real look of us PACKING the floor in the matter of SECONDS at Shen’s 2023 Senior prom including my dance floor opener (in full 360 VR). The 360 starts a few minutes into the recording and the video starts on my last song that I played during DINNER where people were already starting to come to the dancefloor!

Real Comments From

Shen Seniors:

“Dude you are probably the best DJ I have ever seen. I’ve been to alot of events with a DJ and you HYPED IT UP!”

“Thanks for making last night so fun for us. You’re an amazing DJ. See you at my wedding! haha”

“You did so good last night one of the best nights I had in a while especially because my best friend and myself were originally not gonna go but we convinced each other to go since it’s our senior year”

“Man you had the place going crazy”

“I seriously cannot thank you enough for making my first and last prom the most memorable thing ever. You deserve so much recognition! Good luck in your career! You’re crushing it now and you’ll crush it years from now!”


why choose a great dj like nwn entertainment for your school event?

If you have a SUBPAR or BAD DJ at your school dance, this can directly impact your next dance! The reputation that they set can hurt your ticket sales and therefor lower the amount of funds you can raise with your dance! 

A GREAT DJ like NWN Entertainment consistently exceeds expectations and will make your student body excited for the next school event! Additionally, their friends who didn’t go will see the videos and pictures they share from that event and want to go, effectively increasing your ticket sales! Continuing the cycle and setting an expectation of having the best DJ will not only cause your students to have fun, but allow you to increase ticket prices, and raise even more funds for years to come!

Nick was the highlight of our event. He had the kids dancing nonstop for 2+ hours. His set up and lighting really added an extra touch to our event space. He was incredibly professional and so easy to work with. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a DJ.

   we are real djs, not button pushers!

At your last school dance, prom, college event or homecoming were you enjoying the music only to hear the song end with a sloppy transition to the next?! Or even worse, was the DJ playing the part of the songs that you don’t care about, leaving you standing around waiting for it to end?

Unlike most other Albany, Saratoga, and Schenectady NY DJs, we NEVER let a computer mix for us! Believe me, we’re shocked that DJs don’t mix too! We bring club/festival-style DJing to your next school event! Every single transition is manually mixed. Sometimes you won’t even realize the song has changed! We also do MINDBLOWING 100% LIVE TRANSITIONS THAT WILL MAKE YOUR JAWS DROP like the ones you see on TikTok (in fact, check me out on TikTok @DJNVision)! We play the best, known, and trending parts of songs to keep up with the short attention spans of today’s teens and keep the energy HIGH!

Want to hear what this sounds like? Watch the videos on this page for a quick glimpse. Additionally, unlike every other DJ in the area, we post FULL event mixes to prove it! See the bellow players to listen and enjoy! We keep the energy up the whole event!

crystal clear audio made for large events!

Most DJs don’t account for the size of school events! We know that a Wedding DJ sound system is not remotely powerful enough! We are EXPERTS in sound design! We use industry standard gear designed for crowds the size of School Dances (whether you have 80 students of 800)! Not only will you actually FEEL the music (that boomy bass that your student body will love), but our sound is so crystal clear, you can actually understand what 21 Savage is saying!


We would highly recommend NWN Entertainment for any high school prom or event. His energy and professionalism is commendable.

listen to our mixes!

These are recordings live from actual school events we DJed! It’s as real as it gets!

Thank you, Nick, for another amazing Snoball Dance. From initial contact Nick was professional, efficient, and attentive to detail. He’s full service, including lights in his DJ package, making the dance floor ambient and fun. He’s willing to utilize your requests and also add his own touches to get the crowd engaged. His music was school appropriate and updated. The kids had a blast, and we look forward to working with Nick at future events!

younger djs who are passionate about school events

If we’re being honest, most DJs I know in the Albany area would rather do a Wedding any day over a school event. For us, this is the complete opposite! We not only LOVE school events, but all of our DJs are younger and will actually fit in with your student body and know what they want to hear! I myself (Nick/DJ NVision) am recent SUNY Albany graduate and have been DJing countless school events since I was a Freshman in High School (I Graduated from Burnt Hills – Ballston Lake!) We take a modern approach to events! So you will never have to worry about having an old DJ who’s out of touch with the current trends, and what music your students enjoy!

INSANE lightshows like you’ve never seen!

Admittedly at your last school dance the DJ may have been using what we like to refer to as either “Spencers Gift Style Lights” or “Spin and Puke Lights”. We bring lights that not only look amazing but use proprietary technology that builds mindblowing lightshows for each song that syncs perfectly to the music!
