Jerry provided the entertainment for our Mother's 90 birthday celebration. He offered a wide variety of music, played some lovely sax selections that were appropriate for the occasion , worked with me on creating a playlist of oldies that were very pleasing to the older guests and offered karaoke for the brave few. I highly recommend Jerry for a nice addition to a special gathering.

Mrs. Boggs was very friendly and engaging. She kept the children entertained and the quality of her work was great. She was able to do face painting and balloons for everyone within the two hours she was there. We were very pleased and would recommend her for other events.

Dj Jay was amazing! He was attentive and was invested in making sure our wedding went smoothly and how we wanted it to go. He downloaded songs that our wedding guests wanted to hear if he didn’t already have them. He did great introductions and kept the flow of the wedding going from start to end. He was professional and was able to accommodate anything we asked for. We without a doubt recommend Drew Hanson’s Global Vision Entertainment and DJ Jay!!

We hired Cameron for our corporate event. He followed up with us every step of the way. He had a wide variety of music for us to choose from, and follow up after we made our selections. He called the day of the event to make sure we didn't have any last minute requests. He showed up on time, and started playing music early for us. He was cool under pressure, and had great equipment. Thank you Cameron!!

I picked Gus to DJ my hubbies 40th birthday. He was very polite and accommodating to what I was looking for music and entertainment for the party. During the party we randomly decided to change up many of the songs and the DJ changed everything over smoothly and without a problem. Couldn't have asked for better. Good quality, responsive, professional, flexible = Amazing! My friends are still talking about how great the music was. :) I would totally recommend Gus!

Dean came to entertain at our Employee Appreciation Week. Dean was very entertaining and our employees couldn't get enough. We will have Dean back again soon! He is also a true artist making some of the most creative designs out of balloons.

Jordan Salyer was an absolute joy to work with. He made our special day even more special than we had ever imagined - rather than being just "a guy playing music", he took the time to ask questions until he was confident he could do exactly what we wanted. Jordan is a consummate professional and was able to read our guests and play what they wanted to hear. When we asked for some songs he was not familiar with, his reply was simply "no problem". Our taste in music isn't exactly mainstream, but Jordan was able to play the perfect music we wanted for a nice quiet dinner, then get everybody out on the dance floor. He carried out the Master of Ceremonies duties in such a way that there was no question he is a true professional. Highly, highly recommended.
