Mitchell was the DJ at our wedding on May 24, 2014. From the time we met him we could tell he loves what he does and the best part was we could see that all the way through. Great music, professional and fun! We did have a few guests say that they couldn't hear when things were announced, like they missed the cake cutting because they couldn't hear you say it was happening etc. I know this is probably because of the location and the fact that it was outside, but I just wanted to let you know so that you know for all the future outside events you DJ. Thanks again Mitch! You did an awesome job and we would definitely recommend you to anyone needing a DJ.

I've known Dwaine for a long time....and once again, he did a bang up job....this time for my wedding reception. I highly recommend him for any and every party. He knows how to get people on the dance floor and not one person has anything negative to say. Everybody that attended my wedding walked away saying that it was one of the (if not) best wedding receptions they've been at. One of the reasons was Dwaine Luna and Lunaman Entertainment! He's a great guy who knows his stuff and very professional! Again, I highly recommend his services!!!

In summary, Jim provided very good work for our event. His music choice was excellent, however his professionalism could use some improvement. Jim had asked me to write a review for him on thumbtack. I will say he did stress for me to write him a "good" review. His request was understandable given the one rediculous review he got before. Regardless, I will provide below the most honest review I can offer of Jim's company based on his service at our event last night. Please note: the actual rating I would give Starfire Entertainment is 4 stars. I put down five to help balance the terrible review he got because I do not believe the company was deserving of such low of a score given my recent experiences with Jim's company. My name is Tim, I am a student at OSU who helped organized an end of the year dance party for our residence hall. Jim arrived at least one hour before the event (though he may have arrived even earlier but my exact recollection is unclear). His equipment set up was very timely and the lighting he provided was excellent (lights, black lights, disco ball, everything we wanted!). I will say that he he was still calibrating the volume of the speakers after the event already started; the volume was very low initially which may (in my opinion) have caused some attendees to leave. As soon as the volume was correctly adjusted (10 minutes into the event), the volume was excellent and remained so for the rest of the evening. During the dance, the music selection was consistently excellent. He was very good with playing requests. The sound effects he played to transition between songs were not like any of the transitions I have heard from past dj's (though they did not detract from the experience). My one major concern was that he took several extended breaks from his dj station. During one of his breaks, a song came up that was not a dancing song, so one of the organizers had to go to the station and manually change the song (otherwise people would have started to leave). Also, on about two occasions, he did not have a song prepared in the queue when the current song had finished playing so we had to wait for briefly for the next song (though the time waiting was filled with transition sounds). Overall, we all had a great time! He performance was very good, he set up was excellent, he was very kind. Despite the minor concerns I discussed above, I will give him a solid 4/5 because he did a very good job. He is not deserving of the one low review he had gotten. This is as honest of a review I can offer. Tim

Absolute best party planning services ever!! Mindy and Stephanie held a house full of first grade boy's attention for 2 hours! The balloons were phenomenal, the kids had a great time, and best of all, I didn't have to do anything and was able to enjoy my son's birthday! Will definitely hire again and recommend to ANYONE who wants to have a party for their kids!!

He kept a party ranging from 2 years old to adults entertained. It was a very cute kid friendly show that every kid in the party loved! Very good and patient with the little kids. He was especially good at involving all of the kids in the show. Would call again if the need arises! :)

Perfect for home parties! This independent company is in the community I live in so I wanted to support. The process was soooo easy - and this company had great options to choose from. I rented 2 bounce houses and they were very clean and the kids loved them. I will definitely continue to use this company

I hired Bob for my dad's surprise 60th Birthday Party. He played outside on the back deck and was absolutely fantastic! He showed up on time, setup his own sound system and got the party going right away. I gave very little direction on what to play (mostly said Springsteen and Rolling Stones and anything 50-65 year olds would enjoy), but he knocked it out of the park. Everyone had such a great time dancing and celebrating. If you love live music, a good party and all the classics (and who doesn't?!), I would highly recommend Bob for your next event! (the photo I attached isn't great quality, but it's the only one I got of just him... in all the others he was hidden because everyone was dancing in front of him!)
