    Great time!
    Very impressed. He misquoted us but, was willing to honor the price he quoted. Additionally he stayed a little longer so we could continue our holiday party.

    Great DJ
    Todd arrived exactly when he said he would and set up with efficiency and from the first minute gave me confidence that we would be happy with his service... and we were!! Great rapport with the staff and residents alike and went out of his way to ask what we'd like to hear. We're very happy and would recommend his services

    Todd Lively was the DJ for our company Christmas party. He was available every step of the way prior to our event last week and arrived early for set-up and was enjoyed by all of us at the party. Karaoke was provided as well and he had all the songs requested. I can see why he has the customer references he does - and I did call them all. You won't find anyone better! Todd is the best and TX is lucky to have him!

    5 Stars all the way around. Glenn showed up early to get set-up, was very professional, and played exactly the kind of music we requested. His music library must be huge as he had hours of music from the specific genre we requested and never repeated a single song. We will use him for all of our events from here on out. Thanks!
    Glenn Todd L. May 19, 2015

    Thank you for your faith in me to get the job done right. I love these type community events, and look forward to the next one!

    Todd, you were awesome! We were just talking about how you "made" our party. Everybody is raving about how much fun they had. I did the music myself last year and it wasn't nearly as good. Thanks, and we'll see you next year!

    We hired Todd for the New Years Eve party we hosted at our home. I cannot say enough good things about him. From the lights to the music to the karaoke - Todd knows how to keep a party rocking! He is also extremely professional and very responsive to pre-event communication. We will definitely be using Todd for future parties.

    Glenn Todd Lively from Livewire Music Express is a consummate professional with a great personality and an acute sense of audience. Throughout our wedding reception, he adeptly managed our timeline of events and ensured that our guests were thoroughly entertained. My wife and I were delighted with Glenn's music selection, and received several compliments regarding his work. Based on my experience with the company, I’d highly recommend Livewire Music Express for any important occasion!
    Glenn Todd L. Oct 23, 2014

    Thank you for that wonderful review. You 2 are the nicest, most relaxed couple I have had the privilege of meeting thus far, and I see you together for many years to come. Thank you for your hospitality, and your wife agreeing to lead a dance on a moments notice. I am talking about the Chicken Dance of course. :) I told y'all it would pack the floor with group you had! Good luck to you both!

    We had a surprise party for a dear friend of ours who was turning 12. This was a very special party for her because she is fighting cancer for the third time in her short life. Her actual birthday was in May but because of her treatments we weren't able to celebrate until June... and on very short notice. I told Todd about our situation and he was more than willing to make this a very special occasion for her on a very short notice. We were very lucky to have him be available for this special day. Everyone had a fantastic time! He made sure everyone had a chance to karaoke and dance! And, yes, he had ALL of the music we requested! He has an unbelievable amount of songs (latest and greatest to oldies)! I can't thank him enough for showing up on time, having an awesome light display (which he thought would make it even better) playing the best music, making sure the party never stopped and just overall making sure everyone had a good time! I would highly recommend him for any occasion! I will certainly contact him again whenever I am in need for a DJ and/or karaoke. Best Time EVER! Thank you!!

    Todd was great! From the beginning of my DJ searching almost 2 years ago, Todd was a professional. He was more than understanding when my wedding date was changed because my husband got irders to deploy. I paid the deposit to hold my date and he moved the deposit when the date changed. I then cancelled on him, because a friend was going to do my music for bith the ceremony and reception for a cheaper rate. When that "friend" cancelled 11 days before my eedding, I needed a DJ in a hurry, and Todd was right there. He even applied my $50 deposit previously paid to my new date and my night was perfect. He brought his own set up and lights, everything he needed to make the night fun. His professional experience in song selection as my guests were eating dinner could not have been better. I reccommend Todd for any event a DJ is necessary!!!!! If I could give him 10 stars I would!!!! You will not be disappointed!!!!

    Exceptional DJ that made our wedding one full of great music and the biggest collection of tired-from-dancing legs I have seen in a while. The sound was fenomenal and everything from ceremony music to cocktail hour, and reception was on cue.and if it isn't enough, nearly all the guests complimented us on the music and atmosphere. I think that speaks volumes about the DJ. We highly recommend Glenn Todd Lively for any kind of wedding hands down!!

    We had a wonderful experience working with Todd. He DJ'd for my daughter's wedding at Angel Springs. We did not make it very easy for him as my daughter was not sure what she wanted and we gave him very little to work with. However he and his assistant provided us with a fantastic evening of music and fun. He was able to figure out what we needed/wanted without us even knowing how he did it! Our only complaint was that the evening ended too soon - though we all stayed later than planned. I would gladly recommend him for a wedding and would imagine he would do great for any event.

    Glenn was the best thing we could have done for our wedding-- he really made it happen. I planned my own DIY wedding, and it was quickly turning into a crazy juggling act, all the details that needed to taken care of became so time consuming. Best decision I made to leave the most essential part---the music---in the hands of a professional. To be honest, I didn't have that perfect playlist, or any playlist for that matter... and time was running out. That's where Todd came in, he consulted with us about preferences, was available via phone at all times, had such a resourceful website, and on the big day, he just did what he does best, took care of it all, and everybody had a great time, including the overworked Bride! I have to mention--Our wedding date fell on the DJ's birthday. We didn't find out until his assistant let us know. I was so impressed and honored that Todd was working my wedding on HIS birthday. SUPER PROFESSIONAL, OUR CEREMONY WAS BEAUTIFUL OVER HIS MICROPHONES, MUSIC WAS GREAT DURING DINNER, & HE ROCKED THE CROWD TILL THE END. Would hire again in a heartbeat.

Q&A

How did you get started doing this type of work?
Love all types of music, and wanted to share my vast knowlege with others! Love singing the reaction you get when others get on dancefloor after I play just the right song!
What types of customers have you worked with?
Weddings, Birthdays, Company Events
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
There are MANY DJs out there who are slightly cheaper, but you are usualy getting an outdated songlist, inferior sound and equipment, and a less than professional attitude. Just be cautious. Spend a little more for quality, these are your memories, and you want them to last for the right reasons!
