About this pro

How does your service stand out?

I have performed at over 650 events and and over 250 weddings. I have worked with event coordinators and wedding planners in 25 states and 5 countries. I have trained many DJ's and was co author of the article "How to select your DJ" In World Review. I am not just a D.J., I am an entertainer. I can contribute live vocals to any event. As an ordained Minister I can solemnize your marriage, or if your wedding officiant doesn't show up, you have me. As a tribute artist, I can add a guest appearance by Elvis, Jimmy Buffett, Frank Sinatra, Bat Man, or Santa. I am OUTSTANDING, DEPENDABLE, & REASONABLY PRICED. Thank you, Johnny

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I love music and I love to sing. I love the way it makes me feel to know that I made someones wedding, or birthday so special for them. I love the feeling I get when I get to be Elvis Presley, Jimmy Buffett, or Frank Sinatra, especially for retirement Community residents, and they are so excited. I love the looks on the children's faces when I am their Santa, or Bat Man. I love to find great voices while hosting Karaoke. There is nothing like playing or singing the right song at the perfect time. I love my job.

    He was just awesome and everybody else enjoyed him as well. He even let my kids and other little girls talk on his microphone to say a speech. I will recommend him to anyone!

    Overall things went very well. He did our 2016 prom. His musical selections were good and he took requests (might need help making sure everything is edited appropriately). He sung one song which got mixed reviews. Very professional, lights, fog machine.

    Johnny took care of the music for our high school prom. He was easy to work with and was really interested in making sure that everyone had a good time. The students sent him a playlist and he did a great job of finding even the obscure songs that they wanted. We would hire him again because we felt like he actually cared!

    Johnny provided his services for our June 7th wedding. He arrived prepared and ready to do both the ceremony (outside) and the reception (inside). He was extremely professional, but absolutely a treat! He gave us a serenade for our wedding, which was above and beyond anything that I ever imagined! We couldn't have been happier with Johnny, I will recommend him to everyone and certainly hire him again! Thanks Johnny!!! Mr. and Mrs. Frank Morgan

    DJ Johnny Lightning did an amazing job. He was there early and stayed late. This guy played some awesome music, sang and had a great time with the crowd. He fit right in like he'd been hanging out with us crazy people for years. He let us throw some of his t-shirts out to the crowd and I got to keep one as well. He even gave me some tips on how to use the mic, I'm horrible at it. I will definatly be hiring him again for next season!! Thank you for everything Johnny !!!

    He was very prompt on arriving and having everything ready to go. He played great music and played all of our request. We all had a great time at our wedding and would recommend him to all of our friends. He also has a great voice. Him and my husband sang alot of good songs together and they sounded great. Thanks for everything Johnny!

Q&A

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I am constantly downloading songs to add to my library. Every wedding I do that requires special song choices that I download become part of my library. I download the top 100 song choices of every year for each different genre of music and they are in my library. Every class reunion that requires all the popular songs for that year is in my library. I do a lot of school events, and teen parties and constantly search the most popular teen and hip hop tunes and dance music. I have an excellent feel for what each group of people want to hear, and it is so great when the music is right and everyone is dancing and having fun.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
On Jan.7 2015, I had the honor of being Jimmy Buffett for Jack's 50th Birthday party in Marietta, Georgia. This was a surprise party. I arrived early and set up in the living room. I was Jimmy Buffett and ready to go when Jack arrived. When everyone yelled surprise I broke out singing "FRUITCAKES", Jack was overwhelmed, he was speechless. After 12 songs Jack cut the cake and I played some dance music and requests from party guests, then we all sang Karaoke. I absolutely felt like one of the family and I had as much fun as anyone. It was so great. I love my job!!!!
