He did an awesome job. Played all kinds of music which kept all of my guests dancing. Was there on time setting up and kept up with me on how things would go. Very professional would totally recommend to anyone looking for a DJAug 3, 2018Verified
Working with Ken was so smooth. Loved being able to make changes on his website and Ken was great in our meeting with him and on the day of. We had a slight hiccup when I had asked for some last minute changes, but Ken was prompt to rectify the situation and our guests still cannot stop talking about how much fun they were having.Jul 13, 2018Verified
Ken DJ'd our wedding, and I was so impressed! (Multiple compliments from the guests and even the photographer!) We went with a slightly retro-vibe (80's 90's 00's music) and he captured that perfectly! The floor was packed all night. He did an excellent job dealing with some last minute requests and was amazingly affordable. Overall he was excellent and we would totally recommend him.Nov 20, 2017Verified
DJ Ken was great to work with. He played exactly what we requested, and we got a ton of compliments about his ability to read the crowd and play the right music at the right time. EVERYONE danced- for hours- at our wedding, including several people who "don't dance" (even someone who was wheelchair-bound). You can tell he is passionate about what he does, and he was responsive, professional, and so helpful the entire time, both during the months leading up to the big day and the wedding itself. Thank you Ken for making the most important day of our lives that much more memorable!Oct 10, 2016Verified
KJ Tunes was always prompt and professional in all of our interactions with him. He made our wedding fun and had creative ideas on getting guests involved and on the dance floor. We were not thrilled with the "Smooth" song selections made during dinner, but KJ made a quick adjustment and responded to feedback in a constructive way. We were also on a timeline to be out of the venue by 9pm and had to remind him of the money dance and garter/bouquet toss before the night was over. Overall, it was a great wedding and we want to do it all over again!Jun 12, 2016Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?KJ Tunes is committed to offering reasonable, competitive rates for its experienced, professional services. While the total cost for an event will vary depending on factors such as the length of the event, requests for additional services such as lighting and effects, ceremony sound, and travel expenses outside the southeastern Massachusetts area, our standard rate is generally $150 an hour for family events and private functions, with a two-hour minimum to book. Our 2017 wedding packages begin at $200 an hour and include ceremony music and sound (PA), lighting effects and uplighting, along with full emcee and reception planning services. Most wedding ceremony/reception packages run between $800 and $1,000 — a bargain for professional, experienced DJ services.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I like to have an introductory meeting -- preferably in-person -- where we can discuss what your vision is for your event or wedding and what your expectations are from me as DJ and emcee. It's important that we are both comfortable with each other if we're going to be working together.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a degree in English/Writing and have extensive experience in public speaking and teaching, both of which lend themselves to serving as an emcee for events. I also have more than 25 years of experience with video, audio and computer technology -- all of which are useful skills in providing a complete, multimedia entertainment experience.
