    I heard nothing but good things about the photo booth at my wedding! Karl was there himself and was very out going and interactive with everyone taking pictures. Definitely a great vendor to work with!

    Karl Mohr was terrific!
    Karl was excellent throughout the planning phase, communicating efficiently and timely, providing great tools for music selections. On the day of the event he arrived on time, was a great participant in the event, responded to all requests. He played everything on our list, the lights were great, and he joined in the fun. I highly recommend him and will absolutely book him for future events.

    Excellent DJ, would highly recommend!
    Karl was excellent!! He was professional, fun, and helped throw a great wedding. Karl is spot on when he says he gives you more for less. The lighting was awesome and really created great energy at the wedding, the speaker sound quality was great and he was able to assemble all the equipment so it was out of the way and hardly noticable. Karl's music library is very extensive and his online planning tool ensures that the event will be everything that you want! He provided professional advice on how best to do things, gave good direction with organizing people and had great enthusiasm while announcing the wedding party. Karl is professional yet personable and very easy to get along with. We would highly recommend him for any event needs!!

    Hiring DJ Karl was literally one of the best decisions that we made for our wedding. He was very personable and easy to communicate with in person, over email, and over the phone. DJ Karl uses an online planning site that was very easy to navigate and had an extensive library of songs so that we could choose exactly what we wanted for each part of the ceremony and the reception. We also had some very specific song requests and wanted to do some unique compilations, and Karl was able to find every song we asked for and rocked at editing together the compilations. He did the announcements flawlessly and kept the party going all night. Our guests were up and dancing the WHOLE TIME and having a blast! We couldn't have asked for anything more perfect. Thank you again, DJ Karl!!!!!!

    Karl was a terrific DJ and having him at our wedding really made the party! He knew what he was doing and was a total professional. He made it so easy by taking care of everything... anything we asked for he made happen, but things like transitioning from dinner music to dancing and announcing the wedding party he took care of and made sure everyone was having fun! The real test? My dad could not understand why we would bother hiring a DJ, he thought it was a waste of money and brought it up several times during planning. Yet after the wedding? His comment to me the next day was "Next time I have a hand in planning a wedding first thing I'll do is book that DJ again" High praise from my gruff dad!

    He was fantastic! He has a webiste that allows you to put in a timeline and every song you want played! It makes sure you don't miss anything, even when you didn't know you needed a song to fill a spot! He was very accommodating to our open outdoor venue that even caused him to have to move from the ceremony to reception. Sound was great, and he was an awesome MC! Super nice and personable and courteous! Highly recommend!

    Karl went above and beyond from start to finish with my recent wedding. He was friendly, detail-oriented, and timely with our many communications back and forth during the planning process. The most unique thing and what I appreciated the most was that Karl contacted our venue directly to discuss particulars and really did his behind the scenes legwork, to make my job as bride/part planner easier! He was unobtrusive at the reception and played a great mix of music, especially given the slightly different vibe of our afternoon wedding. He totally got it. I couldn't have made a better choice!

    Everything about my experience with Karl was exactly as I expected. He was exceptional at providing all the details of what I could expect and then provided the service that way. We had a blast at a venue that was a bit tricky with multiple rooms, multiple levels and multiple age ranges. Karl did it all and kept the party going. He is the greatest!

    We had Karl Mohr (Mohr Fun Events) DJ for our annual work holiday party and he was amazing! Timely, fun, and very professional. Karl’s meticulous attention to details, professional pre-event planning and overall care and concern for our wishes for the evening helped make our event easy and enjoyable for all. He provided all the necessary equipment, lighting for the dance floor, and microphones for us to use during our awards segment. It truly was a pleasure working with DJ Karl. His online client space was flawless and rich with features, allowing us to plan our song requests easily along with the timing of each song. The music selection during the cocktail reception, the dinner, and the late night dance was perfect and we loved how everything flowed together. Karl was very easy to work with. He followed our evening itinerary on the dot and made sure he had the obscure special song that we requested. He was also able to easily follow our visual cues when we needed a song to be paused or resumed with smooth transitions. We received a lot of positive feedback from our guests regarding our DJ during and following the event. We HIGHLY recommend Dj Karl Mohr for anyone looking for a friendly, professional, fun, and affordable DJ!

    DJ Karl was absolutely outstanding at our wedding reception! With all the stress of planning everything, we left the music up to him (with the exception of a couple songs we picked out) and he came through for us BIG TIME. He got everyone moving, kept a great flow, and handled all the announcements perfectly. We organized everything sort of last minute and he kept things cool and made us feel relaxed. His vibe is fun and professional and he brings a great energy which really made the difference for our reception. We could not thank him enough and would highly recommend him to any and everyone who need a top quality DJ for their event. 5 stars across the board. DJ Karl, you are awesome! Thank you for coming through for us on our special day.

    Mohr Fun Events was a superb choice for our Holiday Party this year! DJ Karl was the most professional DJ we interviewed, and he had more than all the necessary equipment to handle our many needs. He was able to accommodate our venue's split room format with an additional remote speaker, added a light show to the ceiling and floor with holiday coloring that made the space come alive, and he had excellent karaoke equipment with no shortage of music. First rate all around. And he showed up on time, worked seamlessly with our agenda items and facilitated a great night for all! Thank you Karl!

    Karl is a great DJ. And his talent on the mic is spot on. Just right. He was professional and respectful to all our concerns and issues. Punctual and available for communication. I'd hire him again, for even the most basic party will be better with him there.
  • Brett H. Sep 22, 2015
    Dj Karl was at the wedding I went to last night and he rocked! It was my cousins wedding in Corolla and it was outside on the deck of an event home. It was really windy and I could tell it was difficult, because the table linens wouldn't stay on the tables or anything. But my cousins wedding day was stressful before the DJ arrived because of the weather, and once he got there, everything just fell into place! All of my family and our friends were very impressed. Great job!

    DJ Karl Rocked My friends' wedding at 128 South Front Events in Wilmington NC last weekend! He was calm under the pressure of transitioning between multiple rooms and nailed all of the announcements, including a complex sequence for introductions. The dance party was awesome! Not only was the music well chosen, but it really sounded good. We could have kept dancing all night!

Q&A

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
The first step is to communicate to make sure we are the right fit for your event. Every gig is completely unique, and each DJ's style is different. We are very versatile and can cater to a wide range of events. Meeting in person before your event may not always be possible, but we highly recommend making the time to have a face-to-face meeting with your entertainer. We offer unlimited consultations leading up to your event.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I am always active in professional development, continually striving to get even better at my job than I was yesterday. It works! I keep up to date on all music, and am always learning more about artists from past generations. This allows me to be a versatile DJ, able to entertain a wide variety of guests. Additionally, training and practice turns potential disasters into minor inconveniences, always remedied behind the scenes. We take steps to have a back-up plan for everything in case technical issues might arise.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
My standard is $175 an hour for wedding receptions, and ceremonies are sometimes priced separately because of the extra equipment that might be involved. Other events and parties are $125 an hour standard. If your event is priced less, then I am offering a promotional rate to you in order to help my business grow. Win for you, win for me!
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I have always loved music, and I enjoyed entertaining friends at home while in college. Then I would DJ at the family business as a young adult, and began doing weddings in the early 2000's for friends of the family. I started becoming a professional DJ around 10 years ago on the Outer Banks, and then Coastal DJ and Video took my professionalism to the next level when I joined with them 5 years ago. Now the time has come to go out on my own, making great service accessible to people that want to celebrate any occasion with an unforgettable event.
What types of customers have you worked with?
All sorts! I have done weddings for couples young and old, from all different walks of life. I am versatile, so it is easy for me to please a wide variety of folks from many different places, even when they all converge in one place for one evening!
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Meet with them in person if possible! You cannot get to know anyone over text, or even by phone. Having a rapport with someone that is going to be such an important part of your event is critical not only to ensure the perfect delivery, but also to make sure you are not apprehensive leading up to event day. Meet with me before your event and you will be confident that I will deliver exactly what I have promised to you.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
How important is entertainment for your event? People that skimp on entertainment often regret it afterward. Having a good DJ is really important! You need a DJ that can not only entertain, but can keep everyone well informed and organized as well. Hire a good DJ and you won't need an event day planner!
