We celebrated our dad's 90th birthday and for the occasion, we are looking for a DJ and an emcee. DJ Evan was our choice among the so many DJs available. He arrived the event ahead of the scheduled time in order to set up his equipment and lighting effects prior to the event. He is cordial and professional. He is attentive to detail from the instructions of our hired musical entertainers, and dancers. DJ Evan is not only a DJ, he also was our emcee. He displayed willingness to be a participant, an emcee for the program. He is so cooperative. He displayed positive behavior, he is a team player! The music DJ Evan played was just right, not loud, but attractive to the guests to come to the floor and dance. It was magical! I must say that DJ Evan's curriculum vitae is accurate as I was looking for a professional DJ and an emcee at the same time. He exceeded our expectations. I highly recommend DJ Evan for any future events.

DJ David Leeds did such a great job at our wedding! From start to finish, our experience with him was super good. He is very laid back and not at all cheesy. He really listens to your musical requests and even found some songs for us from some more obscure artists. He was super flexible the night of our wedding when we had to change around who would be giving toasts. He was a great emcee and made sure everything ran smoothly. He responds quickly to emails and definitely made the whole wedding planning process a lot less stressful. His monogram lights for the dance floor are really awesome!

Will did a fantastic job at our wedding! We wanted a fun yet intimate wedding and Will made it happen flawlessly. His voice is pleasant and his emcee skills are excellent. Since we planned our wedding without a coordinator, Will helped us plan the timeline in advance and then made sure everything stayed on schedule at the wedding. We never had to worry once while we enjoyed our celebration! The music Will played for dancing was superb and he really read the crowd wonderfully. The mix of music was perfect for our guests and the dance floor stayed full though the last dance. Thank you Will from Dancing DJ Productions for making our wedding perfect!

    I have been a regular attendee at Doug Johnson's KJ gigs for over 5 years. Every one of them is enjoyable and there is always something new happening. Many singers are regulars, and some of the folks are just regular listeners, but there are often new entertainers arriving to join the fun. Doug keeps order and manages the show like the pro he is. He helps first-timers overcome their hesitations, and gets out of the way of the really talented singers who follow him to the various venues in which he appears. Doug's shows are among the best around!

    I hired DJ Mister E for my wedding. From the beginning, he showed how organized he was, by showing us his past work with weddings. My wife and I brought him our playlist and explained how we wanted it done. He told us that he would have no problem in helping our wonderful day become a memorable moment. What I liked about him, was that he would listen to our ideas and if at anytime, he had a suggestion that he wanted us to think about, he knew how to do so professionally. Would I use him again. Of course, just not for a wedding, because I'm only getting married once. Thanks Mister E. You helped seal our memory in the book of amazing events.

    Justin is an awesome DJ! Most DJs are loud and obnoxious and you can't understand what they are saying. Justin was clear, concise, witty and very funny. You won't find a better DJ on the market!

    We hired Frank to Emcee/DJ our 6 hour wedding reception in August. We were very pleased with Frank's services. From our first meeting he was very straight forward and professional and we knew that we'd be getting exactly what we wanted. Frank was very helpful during the planning process in helping us pick specific songs that we wanted played during the reception formalities. He showed up an hour early to setup and played through the entire event. Before we found Frank, our biggest concern was being able to mix English/ Spanish music so not to exclude any of our guests, and we must say the music had everyone on their feet. Our wedding ran so smoothly and we couldn't be more grateful. We really recommend Frank for his services. Thank you! -Shayan and Peter

    Ken is the best! If you are looking for a hybrid of a traditional ceremony with lighthearted entertainment then look no further! He is very professional and had everyone smiling and laughing (when appropriate) all throughout our ceremony with his beautiful storytelling of our love story. He was spot on with what we envisioned and knew exactly what we wanted. Ken talked to us on the phone to let us know his style for the ceremony and to make sure he was going to be a good fit. Then he sent us questionnaire to fill out with things like how we met, favorite movies, books, etc. so that he could get to know us. He also met with us in person before to go over the details and get a feel for each other so we weren’t strangers on the big day. What I loved most about this is he went over the main parts but left some out so it would be a surprise to us. I think one of my favorite things about Ken that I thought was very unique was he uses your favorite things from the questionnaire and in person meeting that you wouldn’t think about to personalize your ceremony. Standing there hearing him speak then looking out into the crowd and seeing them smiling, laughing, and experiencing the same feelings as we were was something that my husband and I loved the most. After the ceremony, every single guest commented on how amazing he was and how that was the best ceremony they have ever been too. Even months later our guests and us still talk about it!

    Ron and his musicians were outstanding!! I hired them for a '40s Big Band Pary for 2 hours and did the deliver! They were very much accommodating to our residents and the staff. Very upbeat group of men who sang and danced with our residents, which made all the ladies very happy!The music was spot on and made us all feel like we really were in the 1940s. Very happy with the performance and their attitudes, absolutely one of the best!

    I was at a birthday party where karaoke was the main form of entertainment. Wes as a performer is very talented. His upbeat personality and high energy encouraged many to participate. I had so much fun. I would definitely hire him for one of my parties.

    Peter Robberecht is a man for all seasons, events and music genre. He is one of the most talented and fun entertainers that I have see in a long time. I personally have enjoyed having him play at my parties, gone to his concerts, events and jams. He also plays at my church. There isn't anything that this man can't do on piano, organ, drums and completely entertain you. He's GREAT! Hire Him!

Richard and his staff were professional and accommodating. Thank you for the support. Lighting is such a wonderful accessory and creates great ambiance. Thank you and I will definitely recommend your services.

    My wife and I were so lucky to work with A Touch of Class Music (Big Daddy Orchestra)! We had so many people tell us they loved the band. Between Barry's Frank Sinatra voice and Valerie's soulful presence, they truly rocked it out there. People were dancing and having a great time. Barry was so accommodating when it came to our requests and we were so pleased with the outcome. A Touch of Class Music was perfect for our wedding!

    I've worked with Luis for years at many event coordination capacities and will recommend him time after time. He IS my go-to-guy when it comes to special events in Southern California. With so many years in the special events business, it's no wonder Luis has a knack for putting other event coordinators and brides at ease. No request is ever too small or extraordinary. Your Special Night is guaranteed to make your special event a memorable one!

    Russ McKamey is the ULTIMATE fun, upbeat, and all-around entertaining DJ! I couldn't have imagined having anybody else DJ and EMCEE my Husband's Surprise 40th Birthday. From the moment I saw his photo on his website, I knew he was the right kind of guy for my event. When I spoke with him for the first time on the phone, his fun, warm-hearted and carefree personality was even more apparent! Every testimonial that I read was absolutely true! The smile on his face in every photo was exactly what I saw all night long at our party! He was NONSTOP fun!!! If you are looking for a DJ who is high energy and an all around fun-spirited person, yet who can adjust to the exact atmosphere and environment of your particular event, RUSS is your guy! His customer service was bar-none! He returned every phone call I made, and every email in a timely manner. He was so cooperative, professional, and at the same time warm and friendly to me, every time we communicated! He accommodated every request I made and gave me plenty of suggestions for games and entertainment as well. His musical selection is tremendous, and he will get any song your heart desires! His lighting equipment is TERRIFIC, and was a tremendous enhancement to the atmosphere of the room! Russ' karaoke equipment is the most modern I have ever seen...and it was a huge hit at our party! Russ had us playing "Rock and Roll Trivia" from the year 1966 (the year my husband was born), which was also so much fun! I can't say enough great things about him! I would hire him again in a heartbeat, the next time I have a party and am in need of a DJ! THANK YOU RUSS FOR MAKING GARY'S 4OTH BIRTHDAY A BLAST!!!"
