Introduction: Hi Peg, Most people haven't seen a female dj and I think that's my niche. I enjoy working with seniors and have done many events catering to that crowd. Love to discuss it with you further...feel free to give me a call!

Kim was absolutely amazing! She was the DJ at my wife and I's wedding. My wife and I were very careful about the vendors we chose, because as a same-sex couple, there is always the chance of getting someone who doesn't "approve." We initially met with Kim because we liked the idea of a female DJ. We were so impressed just from our first meeting that we hired her on the spot! At the reception, she not only had everyone up on the floor dancing the entire night, but she took on a role as wedding coordinator and lined up our bridal parties and organized the toasts, etc... Our reception was amazing, in large part due to Kim. Kim was fabulous at our wedding and we are so glad that we chose a female DJ, she was the perfect compliment to our "all female" wedding!

I was a guest at a buddy's wedding and Kim was the DJ. The whole night went like clock work. I was impressed first of all with the quality of her DJ equipment, top of the line components with awesome sound. It really filled the hall with great sound, but not over powering, perfect mix of sound quality and volume for the space. Everyone remained entertained but still able to converse and socialize without shouting into someone's ear. I was particularly impressed with how she kept the wedding reception organized. Sometimes keeping everything moving along is kind of like herding cats, nearly impossible to do. With Kim's expertise dinner music was perfect, receiving lines went without a hitch, all the requisite toasts and good wishes for the happy couple came and went seamlessly. Even the cutting of the cake was incorporated nicely into the flow of the day. My friend's new wife sometimes comes across as difficult with many people, a bit of a bride-zilla. Kim clearly had done this before, numerous times and handled demands with diplomacy and grace. Her intuition had many requests handled before they came up. I went to this wedding to witness the spectacle of what I anticipated to be a brutal day instead it turned out wonderfully and way better than this pessimist expected. If given the chance, I will definitely hire Kim Collins for my next shin dig. I understand (after the fact) that her price was reasonable and I witnessed her performance to be professional. Hire with confidence!

If you want great fun and lots of dancing at your function, please hire Kim! She DJ'd our son's wedding reception and also provided music for the ceremony. She is extremely professional, flexible, followed up during the planning phase, attended to every detail, arrived early to be sure everything was set up, and best of all, had people on the dance floor the entire time with a great blend of music. People raved about her--she customized her services to the bride and groom's wishes, and contributed to a perfect day. Kim is fabulous. Can't think of even one thing she could have done better, and in fact, she provided a lot of details we would never even have thought of. We didn't know Kim before this--we feel lucky that she was recommended to us. She exceeded our high expectations and we are delighted to thoroughly recommend her.

Kim DJ'd our wedding at Union Station in Worcester, MA on 4/25/15. We had a fairly large crowd of 170+ and also challenging acoustics (the room was large with a high arched ceiling and echoed quite a bit.) Kim was great and aside from some minor sound issues for the speeches (due to the challenges presented by the space), the night went off without a hitch. Kim kept the party hoppin' and the dance floor was packed all night! Like any wedding, there were some last minute adjustments and challenges, and Kim rolled with things and the crowd never was the wiser. She was able to handle things discretely when one of our guests requested to play the harmonica during our dance music (not what we would have wanted) and not even I (the bride) was aware of this until after the evening was over. Even the preparation leading up to the wedding was outstanding. She went over everything with us in advance and spent time to review our music choices and offer some additional selections based on our travel theme. We would certainly recommend Kim Collins to DJ your event!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My price may not be the lowest but I can guarantee that I'm among the best when it comes to emcee work and being able to work a room. I am one of a very few female dj's who can engage a crowd and fill a dance floor...without being cheesy and self absorbed.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I'm happy to talk with clients on the phone first to give them an idea of how I work and then I always meet with couples before the wedding to get to know one another and go over the timeline.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    My extensive experience in radio definitely helped me get where I am today.
