We had never used a DJ before so wasn’t sure what to expect. EBDJ was awesome! Rob was there in plenty of time to set up all the cool gear he has so our event was well orchestrated. Response from any request was met with a quick professionalism that made it all a wonderful event.

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!

So Young is the Shizz. I actually found Young through my brother. My brother got married at SF City hall in March of 2016. He rented out the entire rotunda. For those who don't know, that space is incredibly tricky to work with, not just as a result of the architecture and the strict limitations of this historic building, but for acoustic reasons as well! Young was so fun, and such an ease to work with, that I KNEW I needed him for my wedding. So fast forward 8 months, and I have to say, my experience with Young and his assistant was even better than I could have ever imagined. He worked with my half indoor/outdoor wedding with such ease! He's incredibly professional and organized He know's his stuff He asks you every question you'd need to have asked to make the event go smoothly He actually MIXES good music. He is a fantastic emcee. Not cheesy and a complete natural. And above all else, is a cool and fun guy who could probably do this in his sleep. He was worth every penny and then some. I had a budget for a DJ, but I can say without a doubt now, DONT SKIMP on the music. It really makes the whole night. I wish i had more siblings so we could keep hiring him!

Beau was the DJ at a wedding I photographed, and I can't say enough how much he added to the party with his excitement and great taste in music. He was SO MUCH FUN! I see a lot of DJ's in this field, and I've never seen one as good as Beau. I'd recommend him to anyone.

As far as I'm concerned good music can make or break ANY party. To prove how important it was to us, when it can to our wedding, we didn't pay for a professional photographer or a professional wedding cake, hell I didn't even buy a traditional wedding dress....but we did pay for the best professional DJ service. Kudos to Joel Nelson Productions and to DJ Roy Stone for doing their due diligence prepping us for our big day. Roy rocked it all out to make EVERYTHING run beautifully throughout the evening. Our mixed crowd of guests were kept out on the dance floor, volume was a good level and everyone seemed to be having fun. I had more then one compliment from folks about Roy and of course the "party" was a success because of him!

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

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!

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.
