OK… First, here’s what I usually hate about most DJ/Karaoke providers. The DJ has an attitude and thinks they know what the crowd wants to hear more than you (the HOST) do, and completely ignore your song requests or even genre requests for music. Maybe you haven’t experienced that, but I have… FREQUENTLY. Thank you Jim Spann and Gobo Entertainment for breaking out of that stereotype! Jim and his wife (sorry I can’t remember her name) provided karaoke and photo booth services for our annual “hillbilly” themed party. We are located in Dripping Springs, TX. This year’s party was on a Saturday night and they provided their services from 7:00-12:00 for a group of almost 60 people. They arrived early to survey the party location (our house and outdoor living area) and determine where the best spots would be to set up their equipment. They were extremely accommodating to our location requests, but respectfully suggested another spot for the photo booth. I hesitantly took their suggestion and am glad I did! Turned out they had a better idea of projected party “traffic flow” and it was exactly the right spot. I’m sure they would have done whatever I asked, but this is just one example of how this organization’s experience and expertise paid off. As the party started, no one seemed to be stepping up to the mic to sing karaoke so Jim broke into DJ mode and did a wonderful job of selecting music fitting for our “redneck” theme. After folks had ingested a little “liquid courage” the karaoke began. Jim seamlessly transitioned from one song to another and did a great job managing the waiting list of song requests. There were several times in the night where there were announcements to be made and prizes to be awarded. Jim again was very accommodating and either helped out with the announcements or handed the microphone over to me almost immediately when requested (only delaying long enough to esthetically fade out the song playing at the time) . I know it sounds strange to be so impressed just by the fact that these guys did what I asked them to do (crazy right?… the person you’re paying actually doing what the payER asks?) but with so many bad experiences with DJ’s copping an attitude and ignoring the host, it made a huge impression on me. Jim’s wife worked the photo booth for the evening. I don’t have much to say in that regard, but that’s actually a compliment in itself. After the booth is set up, their roll should be to stay in the background and just make sure everything is working appropriately. If done correctly, the person working the photo booth SHOULDN’T be noticed all that much. Regardless, she was very personable, and I was pleasantly surprised to find that she’d taken several candid shots with her own camera during the party and included those in pictures available online after the party was finished. Regarding the quality of the equipment? The karaoke sounded great. It was not an elaborate set-up, but they had plenty of song catalogues, a monitor to read lyrics, three microphones and a high-quality sound system that worked great in our space. I don’t know how it would sound in a larger space, but it was more than adequate for us. All the vocals were clear and there was an impressive low-end to the sound. I don’t remember seeing a subwoofer, but it certainly sounded like there was one. Jim also shows up with a great assortment of lights that helped make the atmosphere even more lively. This Gobo Entertainment team was professional, courteous, knowledgeable, and truly appeared to be having just as good of time as the rest of the guests were. Above all, they LISTENED to what we wanted and then DID IT. I would highly recommend Jim and his wife without reservation, and if everyone involved in Gobo Entertainment meets this same standard of quality (I don’t know how many employees/teams they might have), I would similarly recommend the company as a whole. Great job!

Great DJ! Jim was able to read the crowd and when things would slow down, he would sense it and change things up, invariably getting the crowd going again! He was like a human version of Pandora! :-). Highly recommended!

Jim is a super DJ who appeals to all ages. He has an amazing knowledge of music, and stays in tune with changes in the entertainment industry. I have worked with Jim at weddings, house parties, reunions and corporate functions. Jim delivers quality events, as his clients have him back year after year.
