    First time I have hired a DJ. I hired Charles Bell to DJ my daughter's Grad/Achievement party. Charles was great! He was professional, arrived on time, played great music, took requests, and also provided a wireless microphone and a projector and screen for our video/slideshow. His equipment is professional and he even plays videos to go along with his music. Charles was very responsive to my texts and emails and was also able to work with me to accommodate my budget!

    He was great! The original dj had to have someone fill in for him, but they were more than willing to work with us. They were also kind enough to keep playing music until everyone left.

    I thought this was going to be a lot of work to find a good DJ for my 40th Reunion. But with Thumbtack and Charles Bells professional attitude, I decided to hire Charles for our Woodside High School of 1976 40th Reunion. Thanks, Ron Gilbert

    Charles was very nice. He traveled a long distances for my mom's surprise birthday party. He played excellent music that kept the crowd moving all night long. I would definitely suggest Charles to DJ any party and the next event I have Charles will be there too. Regards, Rell

    Charles was great! We had a 50th birthday and he knew exactly what music was needed. The lights were great! He turned my backyard into a night club. I had considered charging cover. ;-) Thanks Charles
