    Jeff was on time and dressed appropriately for the wedding. He responded in a timely manner when we asked him questions. He also provided 2 sound systems which we needed for the venue. However, during the ceremony there was a problem with the sound and the officiants mic crackled the entire ceremony and the musicians mics cut out as well. During the reception, he made strange comments to some of the guests and did not play very many songs that could be danced to (other than the line dances). It was also hard to understand what he was saying when giving instructions. The music during the dinner hour was great but we were hoping for a more lively dance floor. Over all, the experience was "okay" but we were hoping for more.

    We hired Jeff as the DJ at our wedding and we are sooo happy with every aspect of his work. He got there early to set up and the quality of his equipment was great. He played every song we requested and all of his song choices were perfect for us!!! Jeff was very helpful with planning and would always respond right away! Our wedding was an amazing day that was made even better by Jeff! Thank you!

About this pro

My business started with a heavy focus on karaoke services and mainly for veterans' groups that I'm a member of. It quickly grew to have more emphasis on DJ services. During my Navy career I was privileged to perform as Master of Ceremonies for many events, some as large as 900 people. I feel at ease and enjoy providing MC services for any event. While I enjoy talking, my preference is that the music takes center stage. You won't hear me talking between every song. The music you want at your special event is more important than anything I might say. I'm very old school in that I don't do any scratching or on the fly mixing. Read my reviews and choose me as your DJ! I enjoy seeing people have a great time. And it makes me feel good if I played some small part in their happiness. I want the customer and their guests to be happy.

    Q & A

    • How did you get started doing this type of work?
      I started with a very small karaoke machine doing a small venue karaoke job through a barrowed amp. Now with four sound systems and a full light show, it is almost a regular weekend activity.
    • What types of customers have you worked with?
      The thing that I do most often is wedding receptions, birthday parties follows second with wedding ceremonies or coorporate events rounding out the top three. But I've done family reunions, very formal military balls, and school carnivals and pool parties.
    • What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
      There are many providers out there, and you need to find an entertainer that meets your expectations. Do you want someone who adds to the event or steals the show? My style is to let the music carry the party. I will keep things on schedule, make the announcements that are needed, but I really enjoy it when you have a good time. The important thing is to know what you want and be clear and confident in requesting a service that is individually tailored to your wants and desires. Ask for references. Find out the track record of the DJ you plan to hire.
