    Matt was so wonderful to work with. Despite the complication of parking, he still maintained a friendly professional attitude. The venue had our reception running behind but Matt still kept us on schedule. He also was gracious enough to stay an extra half hour to meet our guests request. I would recommend Groove Machine every time!

    Lisa G.

    We hired Jazz It - Up Productions after finding them here on Thunbtack. The service they provided was spot on. We couldn't have been any happier. The music was what we had hoped for and all of our guests had a great time dancing and using the photo booth. It wanted to mention that the sound was amazing. I'm a sound geek and stuff like that matters a lot to me. I don't think you will find a better choice. Thank you Jazz It-Up!

  6. #6 Silicon Forest Entertainment

    (16 reviews)

    Danielle J.

    Silicon Forest Entertainment DJ'd and MC'd our wedding reception on Halloween and really did a fantastic job of selecting music and keeping the flow of the night moving. Especially considering the fact we didn't really give him any direction on what we wanted or firm up the flow of the evening until just before the event, Craig did a wonderful job of reading the crowd and helping us keep everything organized and streamlined. Everyone enjoyed the music and kept dancing until we closed the place down! Couldn't have been a better Halloween-wedding mashup!

  8. #8 A Touch of Class DJ Service

    (24 reviews)

    Janelle P.

    Henry was amazing throughout the entire process of planning our wedding reception, from the first moment I came across his website to his announcing of the last song of the wedding night. He took the time to promptly and enthusiastically respond to all of my questions and emails and check up on us periodically while also getting in touch with our venue representative and photographer. Henry carried that great enthusiasm to the wedding day - from the moment we stepped into the venue we could tell that he used his sharp eye and utmost care to assure that the setting would be perfect. The uplighting was brilliant and our requested monogram that shined on the wall was a delightful touch. The songs that he played throughout the dinner pleasantly surprised our guests and set the mood for the dancing portion of the night. Henry kept the energy going throughout the entire evening, reading the crowd to choose the most appropriate music and accommodating the song requests we had entered in his user friendly customer portal. We loved how he mixed the songs so that they flowed together seamlessly so that ourselves and our guests could dance the night away. We highly recommend A Touch of Class DJ Service for your wedding reception! ~Stephen & Janelle

Thumbtack Spotlight

Media Jockeys

What do you love about your job?

I feel so lucky to be a DJ, dance instructor, musician, event promoter, and booking agent, full-time! In my line of work, I get to meet amazing people! I love doing all kinds of events and especially love providing music for weddings! It is truly a dream come true!

What or who inspired you to start your own business?

Honestly, I was born into it. My mom started Celebration Music and Events back in 1980 with just offering up live music options for events. My father is a professional musician so it was a natural fit. Once my brother and I reached high school in 1990, my parents asked us if we wanted to be DJs, and then Media Jockeys took off from there. I was approached a few years later to compete in salsa and swing and fell in love with partner dancing. I do have my master's in music education, so teaching dance came to me easily as well. I have been playing saxophone and singing for years in our band Pressure Point as well. Everything ties in together nicely, and I continually receive inspiration from each aspect of our business!

    Stephanie L.

    David was extremely professional and helped made everything go smoothly. We honestly couldn't have done it without him on our wedding day! The form we got was very helpful and he did very well with accommodating with our requests and we had A LOT of last minute requests. We actually didn't know what we wanted for the reception so we ended up talking to him last minute on the day of and said that he could pretty much take over however he saw fit and it turned out amazing! He read the guests very well and played music that got people up and dancing! He did a great job as M.C and the sound system he had worked very well. He also came early to setup. We highly recommend David for future DJ services!

    Holly H.

    I was so pleased with Dave and how everything turned out for my wedding, first things first, I contacted him back in January about wanting his DJ services for October so he doesn't fully commit you to your date and expect you to pay up front until the day of the event (due to last minute changes). He was so very pleasant and easy to work with. Once I was ready to commit to his business he sent me a questionnaire that was very descriptive down to what songs I wanted when. Once I filled that out (over the extent of a few months) I returned it about a week out from the date and his awesome assistant Katrina called me and went over the whole sheet and said "we will see you on your day"! Everything went so smoothly and I couldn't have asked for a better business to cater to my wedding!! The price was amazing and his services at the wedding exceeded my expectations by far!! I HIGHLY recommend Dave and All Request Live, Inc. for any occasion!!
