We had an event scheduled for our church BBQ this afternoon withTeejay. She had her fiance email us this morning to let us know she was in a car accident the night before on her way to an event. She wasn't sure if she would be released from the hospital in time and said her equipment was damaged in the accident. We were disappointed because we have worked with her before and she has always done a phenomenal job. She already had another dj to fill in at our event and he gave us all of his information as well as what time he would be there to set up. Within another hour she called us and said she was released from the hospital, and would be at the event as well to help with anything and emcee but to pay the other dj for the service. They both arrived an hour before the event and just as before she is showing everyone the line dances we requested. She kept apologizing when she arrived for the change in plans and said she didn't want to lose our trust as a loyal client. I assured her we were fine and she didn't have to come after what had happened to her. She said she had gotten a terrible review because of the accident and couldn't bare to take a chance anything else go wrong. We couldn't believe someone would leave a terrible review for that and wanted to see for ourselves on here. Shame on you Almalisa for having no human compassion! The girl just lost her livelihood and has to invest in all new equipment this week. She has always been courteous and nothing but professional for our three events and we will continue to hire her as should anyone who has the opportunity to.

Deejay Teejay dj'd my daughter's wedding at Bent Tree Country Club in Sarasota last Saturday. She did an excellent job as an emcee and also with the music. When we arrived at the reception she was all set up and had the music playing. She provided a variety of music for all ages and everyone had a great time on the dance floor. Her rates are extremely reasonable and I would highly recommend her!

DJ B Square/Brian was the best choice for DJ Services I could have made for my wedding. He was very helpful leading up to the wedding/ reception and was on time for setup and his equipment was too notch. All my guests loved him and his wife. They kept the dance floor going with his music selections. He was great at announcing and never missed a beat. If your looking for a DJ for your event look no further Brian is the guy. He's AMAZING!! I will be referring Brian to all my friends and family.

Hired Brian to DJ/Emcee my wife's 40th birthday party. I went big with the event, and needed a DJ that could keep folks dancing and having a great time. He did just that and more. He worked well with me on the plans, showed up very prepared, and was even flexible on-the-fly during the event! I'd highly recommend Brian, and will certainly look to him again myself!

We were looking for a DJ and ended up using their planning and day-of services which included officiating, decorating, lighting, and tear-down services. We're glad we did, because they were extremely helpful. We did need to prompt them a few times, but they came through and were very detailed with the music and wedding timeline. We got multiple compliments about the music selection and Steve's officiating/emceeing. They took the stress from us and even threw in some extras the day of we weren't expecting, like petals down the aisle and a video of our ceremony. We would definitely choose them if we had to do it over again.

SRD was fantastic to work with! I would recommend them to anyone needing DJ services. They arrived early to have everything set up. They had a play list ready of all the songs requested from our guests...people enjoyed this personal touch. And they went over and beyond to help with announcing the winners of our Casino themed party. Everyone had a blast! They are a wonderful team! Can't wait to work with them again.

Cindy turned an ugly parish hall into a beautiful 1920's paradise! Steve excelled as an emcee & kept the dance floor packed all night! All our friends said they hadn't danced & had that much fun in a long time ! I couldn't have asked for a better wedding for my only daughter!

My husband (fiance at the time) and I decided late in the wedding planning process to hire a DJ for our reception. After putting in a request, I received Randy's quote that was exactly at our price point. We had a couple of phone calls to talk through the arrangements and that was it! Our reservation was locked in and he assured me that everything would be good to go for our reception. I loved that he has a question/fact sheet that outlined everything that's needed for the program to flow smoothly. Communication with him was a breeze! The reception was a success and everything was taken cared of by Randy and his wife. I had indicated in my request that it was a Filipino wedding and was pleasantly surprised with the sprinkling of Filipino songs during the reception. All the songs were tastefully chosen and as my sister put it "the cheesy songs were thankfully omitted". Randy - thank you for livening up our reception. Thanks for being a great emcee! And for being a wonderful professional here on Thumbtack!

Randy did an excellent job! We chose a mix of artists like Nat King Cole, Louis Armstrong, Cab Calloway, De La Soul, and Bell Biv Devoe, as well as Ed Shearan, Cupid, and Panic! At the Disco and he managed to blend them effortlessly so that the dance floor always had people on it. He is very reasonably priced, already had the music we requested, and was open both to suggesting songs as well as playing whichever ones we wanted. We had the best time!

Drew was amazing!! The days leading up to the wedding were less stressful due to the professionalism of Drew. Drew was super flexible with the event only being a month away. He worked extremely well with the staff provided for the wedding, bridal party, and photographers to help coordinate for great moments. I provided a list of songs to be played at our reception that my father in law, my bride to be, my parents, and myself put together and he literally played them all! He even had songs on deck ready to be played by request which were very helpful for the other guest to hear. It was awesome to see their faces light up when they heard their songs played. He went above and beyond in helping everyone feel comfortable and making sure everyone was having a great time. His DJ/Emcee skills and equipment were definitely on point and made the experience enjoyable for everyone. In shorter words, this awesome man helped make our day a more peaceful and enjoyable day to remember. Thanks Drew!!

DJ Dr. Drew is absolutely amazing! Our wedding reception was so awesome because of him. He connected with the audience, played great music, and was a wonderful Emcee! His level of professionalism is outstanding. I personally didn't know how to create the reception timeline for my wedding, but he stepped in and offered great suggestions for how the timeline should flow and gave me ideas on what to include during the reception. He's very prompt with his communication too! My husband and I are very happy with how everything turned out and we will definitely recommend DJ Dr. Drew's services to our family and friends!

I could not have asked for a better entertainer!!!! I hired Amaze me Sonu for my High Functioning Autistic daughter's Graduation Party in Altus OK!! Both Sonu and His Assistant Melissa were the most friendly, personable and most professional people I have ever met, not to mention the most honest and beyond fair people that I have ever met!! They showed great concern on what we wanted and would do just about anything you asked of them!! They did not just talk with you once they touched base with you often to see if you needed anything else or to let you know that Sonu was going to do something a little special just for our daughter and did we think it would scare her. He respected all our wishes with treating her just like any adult and believing that we did not want anything on a child's level. The day that Sonu and his Assisstant had to come to Altus it was more than a rain storm but they stayed in touch and trudged through the storms not being able to see through their windshield to make this party! We had a decent size crowd and every one got special and as close to one on one entertainment that anyone could hope for, we know also that they gave more time than we paid for just because they are that way! His price is extremely fair for the show you receive, his Deception was out of this world and for months and months even into the year we still try to figure out how he did the things he was able to do and know. His name is no lie he is truly the Amazing Sonu!!! If I ever have another event that needs superb entertainment Sonu will be the first on my list to call. Thank you again and again Tracy

I have used Sonu Varkey for several events and he was the most unique, creative illusionist I've worked with. He was personable and very interactive with the guests, walking around with his strolling magic and deception tricks. I'd highly recommend him for your next event, adult and children's events alike. Well-rounded guy!

Sonu has both the persona and skill to entertain, amuse and even amaze crowds ranging from children to adults. His performances are always suited to the audience and I have nothing but compliments from events I have hired him to perform. I cannot imagine a better choice for just about any type of event.

DJ Barney is the best DJ and Emcee in the Dallas-Fort Worth area (and all of Texas) by far. Not obly does he offer a diverse variety of music (latin pop, reggaeton, salsa, bachata, merengue, Latin rock, cristiano, hip hop, r&b, pop) but he can also host your special event to help make it a memorable experience. He definitely is a purveyor of deep, infectious dance and feel good atmosphere so DJ Barney knows just how to turn up your festivities at the right moment or to tone it down for those special intimate moments. Either way, DJ Barney knows how to highlight your night or day with his fun, exciting and BIG personality. He DJ'd my friend's birthday party on a yacht. Everyone had the time of their lives thanks to his music selection, turn up, & awesome transitions throughout the enitre night. He had the entire yatcht rocking the boat, including the captain who started getting down hard on the dance floor. He's a professional who is reliable and on time. Not only does he provide his unique dj sound, music, & mixes but he also provides great lighting. He has worked and hosted many many weddings & hundreds or other events such as concerts, clubs, pageants, & many other city events. You can tell DJ Barney has a passion for music and entertaining. He's the one you want! DJ Barney is one of a kind...always on beat!

We needed a DJ for our wedding and heard about Barney from a friend. From the start Barney was great, he offered guidance and was very helpful throughout our several meetings. As stressful as planning a wedding can be, it was comforting to know we had the right DJ. On the big day, everything went flawless-he came right at the time we asked him to setup and did a wonderful job with the music and announcements. I could not recommend this DJ more!

Scott was an emcee for a large convention of college students that the non-profit I work for puts on every January. He has emceed this convention of 2,000+ students and staff for multiple years and has done an outstanding job every time. On stage he is confident, witty, and can hold himself well in any setting. If you are looking for an emcee or host, I'd hire this guy!

Scott was hired to serve as announcer and host for an annual philanthropy hosted at the University of Texas. He did a great job interacting with the crowd, referencing the sponsors, and managing the flow of the event. He was very professional in his appearance, yet provided a fun and energetic charisma. Scott would definitely be recommended for other events!!

We used Gil Eral as our wedding DJ and emcee and could not be happier with our decision. Gil was essential in making our wedding day special, stress-free and on-time. From the start, Gil was very friendly and accommodating. We met with Gil before the wedding to go over timelines and playlists. I could tell from that meeting that Gil really enjoys what he does and genuinely cared about helping me and my wife. We had Gil coordinate the music during the ceremony, and he did a great job working with the coordinator and preacher during the ceremony. We also used Gil to provide music for the reception and emcee the reception. We gave Gil a timeline for both the ceremony and the reception and Gil was perfect with everything and kept the reception running smoothly. The venue for our reception was not very big, however once we moved some tables around to create a dance floor; I was very impressed on how Gil was able to get everyone out to the dance floor and stay on the dance floor the rest of the night. We were very happy with our decision to have Gil work our wedding and can’t say enough about how easy it was to make any last minute changes to timelines, playlists, etc. Gil is a really nice guy and really enjoys what he does and we would highly recommend him to anyone for any type and any size event.

We absolutely highly recommend Gil and his team to DJ your event! They were our DJs at our wedding, and they were AWESOME! Prior to our wedding day, Gil got in touch with me to get an idea of what we wanted and he listened attentively to make sure he had our first dance song right, our playlist and do-not-play list ready, and he even arranged a mash-up for our father-daughter dance. He also got in touch with our venue and was ready to go way before our event started. Gil was always professional and patient, and the communication and customer service was exceptional. My husband and I had so much fun, and so did all our family and friends! We had a mix of young and old with a bunch of crazy Filipinos, Guamanians, and Mexicans and there was always someone on the dance floor. The whole night was SO memorable, and Gil and his team played a big role in making that happen. BOOK THEM! You won't be disappointed! We are so grateful we had Gil and his team as our DJ!
