    What a great MC and DJ! Ben is super professional and has a great selection of karaoke songs. His equipment is perfect and he was very friendly and accommodating. We may book a karaoke party for my daughter's winter birthday! (I know, every DJ's dream!)

    Amazing DJ
    Ben is AMAZING. From his knowledge of his craft to his personality to his ability to have the crowd eating out of the palm of his hand. He knows what he's doing and he does it well. From the beginning, Ben made sure every single base was covered. He made us feel completely at ease and took care of every last detail. When the big day came, he showed up and was a part of the family. Everything went off without a hitch and he was he most talked about guest at our wedding. The music was fantastic, the timing was great and his sense of organization was unparalleled. The best part of the night was when the kids started to crowd around him and his equipment. Instead of getting annoyed or stern with the kids for encircling him, he welcomed them and started teaching them about what he was doing. He even let them create their own request list and announce the songs. If we can have Ben at every event, we will.

    Been helped us out in a huge way by agreeing to DJ our 10 year reunion for capital high school class of 2006. He had a ton of energy, had a great mix of music that was perfect for our high school flashback . He was super helpful, super nice, and all-around an incredible individual with terrific work ethic. I will definitely use them again in the future if I ever host another event and I highly encourage everybody else to give him a shot. People like him are rare and when you find people like him you hang onto them. Thank you Ben you are amazing!

    The job has not yet been performed so I cannot rate my experience in that aspect. I can however rate his responses to emails and willingness to work with us regarding dates and times. He has been very flexible, I am sure his services will be just as wonderful.

    DJ Johnny Utah knows how to get a party going. I met him while he Djed for the local bars and always wanted to go if he was working that night because he plays the latest and greatest hits. He knows how to get the crowd moving and dancing. He has a professional attitude but can make anyone feel comfortable. I would also like to point out that his equipment is top of the line. Any events that I have that need a Dj, he is my number one choice, hands down.
  • Ehlon W. Oct 16, 2015
    Dj Johnny Utah is an amazing DJ he really cares about the people he plays for and knows what kind of music they like instead of just playing what he likes, he actually listens to what we like and he loves what he does and that's what sets him apart from other DJs. He's amazing

    I have to say, DJ Johnny Utah is one of the best DJ's I have come acrossed. Not only is his music amazing, but the way he interacts with the crowd is phenomenal. I would recommend him to anyone because I know for a fact they would NOT be disappointed. He's a genuine person with a kind heart who will guarantee to put a smile on your face. He is terribly missed here in Utah.
  • Brett T. Oct 15, 2015
    I have worked with Ben on several B2B and B2C promotions for my company, he provided excellent insight and helped us pull of them off smoothly with a substantial ROI. I would highly recommend him for any business or event, I only wish he was still in our area so we could continue to benefit from his expertise.
  • Patrisha P. Oct 15, 2015
    I've been to many of dj Johnny Utah's shows that he's put on and they are always great. Always a great crowd and awesome music. I've also had the privilege to work close with him when he put on a few shows for the freeones. He keeps his promises and he's very perfessional. He's super nice, a great dj, and awesome person.
