About this pro

How does your service stand out?

"People don't buy what you do, they buy why you do it." - Simon Sinek I look at my job as a DJ, as your DJ, to sincerely make each event I do the best one possible. It's about going beyond a good business practice, it is about doing what you believe in.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I like meeting with the couples/clients and discussing their details while adding in my experience. I like knowing that I will be helping to start a couples life together in an amazingly fun and positive way.

    If you want a really good DJ- look no further!
    Kurt was the DJ for my daughter and her friend's Sweet 16 party. He did a phenomenal job! I think the ultimate litmus test of a good DJ is to put them before a crowd of 16 year olds! They loved him, loved the music, loved the photo booth- it was all a huge hit! Kurt was very professional and extremely easy to work with (even through a reschedule due to a snowstorm!). I would hire him again in a nanosecond. :) Overheard at the party: "I wish we could hire him for our school dances- he's way better than the DJs we get!"

    Kurt did an amazing job with the photo booth at my wedding! Unfortunately, there was a snow/Ice storm on the day of my wedding and he still showed up and made photo booth such a fun hit! I am so grateful!

    Photobooth was a blast!
    Kurt and his photo booth were amazing! What a great last minute addition to our wedding it was! He had so many wonderful props! Everyone loved it, from the 2 month old to the 91 year old grandma! The photobooth will allow us to look back on everlasting memories for years and years to come!

    Hired them for our DJ service at our wedding. We did have some communication barriers but in the end it all worked out! On wedding day, our DJ, Nate, was on point with everything!

    Fantastic experience! Our wedding was perfect thanks to them. Kurt was on-time, professional, and set up everything perfectly. He is a great MC and DJ, knows how to set the mood, and all his equipments/lights are top notch. The entire process from start to finish was so easy. I will recommend Big Adventure Entertainment to everyone!

    Kurt was amazing! We got married at The Silcox Hut at 7,000 ft in a blizzard (the weather was unplanned) and you had to snowcat up to our venue. Kurt listened to what I wanted, understood I needed the music and DJ set up to be minimal to complement the venue instead of detract and then delivered. His online portal allowed my now-husband and I to choose from endless amounts of songs, there were maybe 4 on there that he didn't have and when I requested them on my "other songs" section he just emailed back and said "perfect this is taken care of!" No questions asked, no issues, no headaches. Brides and grooms if you're looking for a no hassle DJ who will deliver beyond your expectations, engage with your guests and just be a fun person to have around he's your guy. Which other bride gets to say they have a picture of their father staring out at the blizzard chatting about snow with the DJ? Kurt thank you so much from Nic and I for such an amazing job. Thank you for humoring the incredibly lively renditions of Disney songs on the snowcat ride down and for bringing everyone's vision to life throughout the evening. You were an incredible partner and everyone raved about you, your services, your music. There wasn't a minute people we're laughing or dancing along to some of the greats, the oldies, the hits, and everything you chose to play just kept the night going incredibly smoothly. You made it fun, you made us all want to stay up there for longer...which we did! Thank you. Hire Kurt ladies trust me!

    Kurt was personnable, professional and came well prepared. He even offered words of advice leading up to the wedding. Highly recommended, music selection was spot on and his website for planning the music selections was very helpful.

    Kurt D.J.ed our MORP dance last spring. He was great. He was there early, and set up the lights and the sound system. As the students entered the dance, he began to ROCK the HOUSE. Selecting our music was easy, and Kurt was very easy to work with. The kids loved him and wanted to know if we could get him again next year, and for me, the Yearbook Advisor, the dance was a huge success, and the number one reason for that was Kurt. We had good decorations, beverages, and favors, but if we didn't have the music and the lights, we wouldn't have a dance. Will we hire Kurt in the future? You bet !!

    Kurt Hunter was the perfect DJ and MC for our wedding day. Kurt is organized, easy to work with, and polite! I highly recommend him for any wedding or special event. He made planning my wedding day music fun and easy, and the dance floor was packed all night! He has a wide variety of music but provides tools to help you plan and not get overwhelmed. He was flexible with timing and set up, and understands the right flow for a reception. Nothing could have been better, Kurt was a huge part of why my wedding was a huge success and a ton of fun! Thank you!!

    Kurt was such an outstanding DJ. He really made out wedding reception shine with the perfect music choices from our dinner all the way through to the end of the evening.We marveled at his excellent DJness keeping all of our toasts, cake cutting, First Dance, Father Daughter dance, Mother Son Dance, garter toss perfectly timed throughout the evening. He was the perfect choice for us. Thanks so much Kurt! I'll be sending you some fabulous photos :)

    Kurt Hunter was great to work with. He showed up when he said he would and started playing music right on time. He was the DJ for our school dance and he played good Dance-able music the whole time. I would definitely recommend him.

    Kurt was very prompt and professional. He arrived earlier then expected and directed himself with minimal guidance. His array of music was appropriate for the 16 year old audience. He took requests and played a girls mp3 player or ipod per her request. I was very impressed. I fully recommend him.

    Kurt did a wonderful job at my daughter's wedding. The music list was phenomenal. He was asked to play music from the 50's and 60's, and came up with the most beautiful music for that era. He was friendly and professional. I would recommend him for any type of event.

    Our wedding was chaotic at best(1.5 months to plan)!! Kurt took it all in stride and flowed with the chaos like a true pro!! We had the songs requested and some additional ones the night of that were requested by our daughters. Kurt was fun, professional and really kept in tune with the eclectic mix of people that were there. I work in property management and will hopefully be able to use him for our summer resident events too! Thanks Kurt for making our day complete!!

Q&A

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
The usual contact is via email at first, sometimes phone and email. We then arrange a meeting and start working on details.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I stay on top of trends and the latest ideas and news through meetings with other wedding industry professionals, in online forums, and my own research.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I got started DJing when I was in high school. I got involved in getting a new public radio station up and running in my home town of Sitka, Alaska. After the station started broadcasting I began doing my own shows on the air.
What types of customers have you worked with?
For the most part my business is around 80 percent weddings. I provide music for both the ceremony as well as the reception. The other events I have performed at are private parties, high school dances, classic car shows and themed parties. I also have a photobooth for rent as well during events. You have several option to choose from when you use it; including but not limited to, custom photo templates, a table full of props, your choice of background, unlimited prints, digital copies, instant uploads at the event through an internet connection, and so much more!
