LOOK NO FURTHER! DJ Shane is EVERYTHING I hoped for in a DJ and more. He was so responsive, was open to all of our suggestions, incredibly punctual and professional, and best of all, our guests were dancing the ENTIRE time. It's so important to keep the party going and have a good flow, and we got never-ending compliments, with guests raving about how much fun everything was. Plus, the photo booth was the best I've ever seen at a wedding. I could go on and on, but DJ Shane definitely MADE our wedding! Thank you so much!

Shannon was our DJ at our Daughters wedding. We videotaped the whole event. Our video (memories) turned out really cool with Sound Extremes lighting effects. We had a lot of music lovers at our event and Sound Extremes impressed us with his library of music.Shannon was happy to honor spur of the moment requests. He kept the Itinerary moving along as scheduled. Great Job, Kudos! We highly recommend Sound Extremes.

We had a great experience. The djs were fun and were involved just enough but not to much. They even offered to stay another hour! We had a great experience. Great choice for any wedding big or small. Very affordable.

Chris was willing to take songs that we offered and work them into what he was going to play. Sometimes DJs aren't willing to do that

Celebrations provided full karaoke service for our rehearsal dinner of around 75 guests. Everything was setup on time, and the DJ, Luke, was professional and prompt to getting to everyone's song requests. The equipment and sound quality was pretty good for this event (there were some random speaker pops that eventually were resolved, and the karaoke monitor could use a little updating). All-in-all, each of the guests had a fantastic time and I would not hesitate using Celebrations in the future for karaoke!

I've known Derek since we were kids in the same grade-even worked at the same place with him after we graduated. I knew when we were in high school he was going to be in the entertainment business, he just knew how to keep the party going. My wife and I hired Derek and Kelly Zerr to DJ our reception in Iowa last November. They did a fantastic job keeping everything on track in moments when we didn't have all our ducks in a row. Derek came prepared with clean, properly working equipment. I'm not solely biased when I say DnA Music Entertainment is very professional, and I would recommend them to anyone.

I photographed a wedding 7/17/2015 where Michael Scott of Puttin' on the Hitz was the DJ. Audio was excellent, mics were all clear and audible, music played with no interruptions, and the dance floor was packed all night. Even more importantly, Michael was charismatic and genuine in his interactions. His lighting was tasteful and unobtrusive, but still added to the ambiance of the the party. I see lots of DJs and he is among the best.
