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.

I'm almost inclined to hand out my number so you can call me so I could explain how incredibly awesome James was at our wedding. We had everything from oldies to beat-dropping club jams and he blended it all masterfully. He was the perfect MC throughout the night and absolutely nailed our wedding. I honestly can't imagine a better DJ. Wedding planning can be horrible when there's so much to do, I'll make one part easy for you - hire James as your DJ. Good DJs are key to a successful wedding and James made ours special. His affable nature and overall great, warming presence made you feel like you've known the guy for years. James, you were awesome and we cannot thank you enough! Conner & Joni

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!

Reunen was Awesome! We chose him to DJ our wedding reception. He is very well experienced so we didn't have any concern about keeping everyone's spirit up. He knew what music to play and when to play it. He also, had a huge song selection which was great for a your couple like us. The fliow of our reception went smoothly not just because we had a plan but because Reuben was familiar with reading the audience and he knew how the flow of a wedding reception usually goes. I didn't have any complaints at all! I would trust him to be my DJ for and venue.

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!

Will was AWESOME! I had Will at Dancing DJ Productions provide the following services for our HUGE birthday party: 1. DJ - Music 2. Emcee - Announcements (basically ran the event) 3. Photo Booth 4. Stage and Décor Lighting The music assortment was excellent. He was able to accommodate all of our requests and had no issues with special music (specific dance songs and songs provided by other vendors on other devices). All I had to do was point the vendors to Will and he handled it all. I wanted someone to run the event so I didn't have to do anything but enjoy the party. We had a very hectic schedule of performers and side activities but nothing phased Will. It went off perfectly and I was able to enjoy the party like a guest. That is priceless! The photo booth was a HUGE hit. It's an open air setup and allows lots of room for groups to have fun with all the props they provided. They even accommodated our request for a tropical theme. The photo equipment was top notch and allowed immediate uploads to social media or the guest email. At the end of the night he dumps all the pictures on a thumb drive for your keeping. Hint: bring a thumb drive 16Gb or more!! It's so much fun to see all the pictures the next day of your goofy guest playing dress up. I wanted some extra ambiance at the party so I had Will bring up lighting. He had these great light boxes that were wireless (batteries). He was able to up light anywhere in any color. He also provided dance floor lighting which was a super fun treat. Overall, I can DEFINTELY recommend Will & Dancing DJ productions for any event. You won't be disappointed. I know I'll be using Will again at my next event.

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.

Deejay Robert Blaze with Exotic Sounds is fun and talented! I was lucky enough to have him DJ my wedding in 2007 and my baby shower in 2010. Both events were so much fun and a lot had to do with having great music playing to keep my guests engaged and on the dance floor. I danced most of the night away at my wedding and had a blast! I highly recommend Robert to entertain you and your guests.

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

Dave Parsons is an incredible DJ! I have enjoyed seeing his phenomenal level of service in action. He spins the perfect music for the audience. His light show is state-of-the-art and he really knows how to get the party started. He gets all of the guests on their feet and dancing the night away. I would strongly recommend his services for weddings, corporate events, birthday parties, school and children's events, holiday celebrations and more. He is an incredible Emcee as well. He is cordial, animated and friendly to all present. When you hire is services, you are getting so much more than just a DJ. You are getting the key to a successful event. His services are worth every dollar!

I hired OCDJ Company for my wedding and DJ Michael was fantastic! Through the pre-wedding planning he helped design a ceremony and reception that was truly memorable by everyone who attended. Michael was professional, personable, and very entertaining. We elected to go with a lighting package as well (personalized gobo and wireless uplights) which made our entire venue light up! OCDJ Company had all our guests dancing through the night. Highly recommend.

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!

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!!!"

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!
