Shannon was incredible. He arrived early, set up, and was professional all the way through! More importantly, he had the crowd going. EVERYONE had a good time and complimented me on how fun it was. From getting us to do the Cupid shuffle to helping emcee our costume contests, Shannon took the reigns and just drove the fun! We had such a blast. I'm recommend him highly!

I am a board member of a Phoenix-area charity foundation. We wanted to do something different this year at our annual signature fund-raising event and decided on a magician for entertainment. That turned out to be the best decision!! We contracted Mark Stone to walk the crowd and perform magic tricks. In addition we also asked Mark to act as an "emcee" to make announcements (silent auction, drawings, etc). He was excellent at that as well !! I would highly recommend Mark and would definately use him again at any type of event.

We just got married in May and originally my husband and I were going to try to do the music ourselves because we had a PA system and experience using it. However as it got closer to the big day, we realized it was just more than we could chew, to take care of the music and be the bride and groom as well. Then we found Joe! He was great and patient with such short notice. He was willing to work with us, as our budget was quite tight, and helped us find some creative solutions. He took our musical tastes into consideration, was personable as an emcee, and he even went the extra mile and caught some candid photos of the dance floor! If you book Joe for your event you won't be sorry!

We had TwinSpin for our wedding, and we're super satisfied with his service. Before the wedding, he spent time to learn my needs and address my concerns. His price was competitive; he worked with me on prices and threw in couple extras. His equipment was professional and as described, and everyone could hear in our outdoor wedding. At the reception, he was energetic and was able to engage the crowd without any directions from me. Overall, better than expected. You can hire him with confidence.

Aaron is an experienced professional who offered us an outstanding rate! He was very thorough, prepared, and easy going. I wasn’t sure how I could add in a picture slideshow, but he gave me some great tips, and offered to be the MC for our presentation. I would definitely recommend his services to anyone who is looking for an awesome DJ!

We want to thank Don from StylesEntertainment for making Lhana’s Bat Mitzvah party such a huge success. We were so nervous before the party but Don assured us that everything would be OK, and it definitely was! It was actually more than OK, the party was absolutely fabulous! Everything went so smoothly--the music choices were perfectly coordinated, Dj Styles was amazing as the emcee and the dancers kept everyone dancing. You managed to please both the adults and the kids, which is no easy task! We have not stopped receiving compliments about how wonderful the event was from all of our guests. Styles Entertainment exceeded our expectations in every respect! Thank you so kindly for a wonderful celebration and giving us such great memories to look back on. With our deepest gratitude, Stan and Maggie Hertzfelder

DJ Matteo has been the emcee for our school's fundraising comedy night for three years. Held at Yoshi's Oakland, with nationally recognized comedy talent including J.R.

Teachers, staff, families, donors, and corporate sponsors all mingle together and have a great time thanks in no small part to Matteo's skills as a host and DJ.

Porter DJ'd and emceed my wedding and it was a huge success, thanks to him! For months beforehand, Porter was very diligent and asked a lot of questions about my venue and about my musical needs. He even went out of his way to make sure he'd downloaded the correct versions of our entrance & first dance songs, which was a very appreciated touch. The best thing about Porter is that he's got GREAT musical taste, and a very good ear for what's appropriate in which setting. At my wedding, he played 70s easy listening songs before the ceremony as guests were arriving; he played 50s quiet jazz standards during the dinner; and the very best 70s/80s/90s songs after dinner that got everyone, of every age, on their feet! Everything was perfectly timed and loved by everyone. He also charges MUCH less than other high-quality DJs in the Bay Area. I highly recommend Porter for DJing any party you are planning!

DJ Proof is awesome! We hired him from Thumbtack for our wedding. He was very professional throughout the process and had a lot of great ideas for us. He played music that matched our tastes during the wedding and he knew how to start a great dance party. Super cool guy and not your typical cheesy wedding DJ :). I highly recommend considering him for your event!

Let me just say that working with Steve Shankle for my going away party was amazing it was more than I imagined and my family had fun all night. Down to the last song he played my favorites. I told him it would be all ages and he even got the children involved. It was so great seeing the whole family so lively.

Scott is the best DJ I could have hired, he went above and beyond all my expectations. I hired him for the following reasons: 1. From all JD's that sent me quotes, he sent me a very nice professional letter thanking me for the consideration and also letting me know how he performs his job and experience. This really gave me a sense of trust, this days is hard to trust people in the internet. Scott is a person you can trust. 2. When I called him, he was as professional on the phone and when my husband and I met him. I really liked his voice, he inspires so much positive energy and could make any event so much fan. He gave us a long list of all best songs that other people had requested before, this made it easy for us to choose the best ones. He kind of red my mind anyway. 3. The price! he gave us a very reasonable price. We are extremely happy with all the work he did. He really went above and beyond all my expectations, he was focused on ensuring my guess were having fun. I totally recommend him , he could make your event the best ever!

I'm one of only 200 auctioneers in America designated as a Benefit Auctioneer Specialist (BAS) by the National Auctioneers Association. That means I can bring expertise and the best practices for how to raise the most money at your fundraiser. On average, BAS auctioneers raise 50% more money than non BAS auctioneers. Many non-profits use a community member who can't maximize the money raised or hire a high priced professional auctioneer who doesn't make the event more fun. I provide entertaining auctioneering that pays for itself many time overs in increase money raised.
