About this pro

How does your business stand out?

Before a wedding, I do a sit down consultation with the couple and put together a ceremonial overview. This pins down the details of the event and is a nice keepsake for the couple afterwards.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

Seeing the faces of people when they see my setup; also when I play something they've totally forgotten about. Basically giving them what they wanted before they knew that they wanted it.

    Jimi and Ann were wonderful. They were able to keep the day flowing smoothly. Listened to my ideas and brought them to life more than I could ever imagine. People that say “I don’t dance” were definitely on the dance floor. Played a great array of music for the whole crowd and constantly read the crowd to keep everyone entertained. The set up and light added so much to the decorations. Everyone we’ve talked to today has stated hands down most fun wedding they’ve attended. Thank you guys so much!

    DJ Bones (Jimi) and his wife are a fantastic value for a wedding dj. Jimi brought great music, wedding knowledge, humor, dancing, and professionalism to our wedding. Jimi and his wife go above and beyond to make recommendations and suggestions that helped our special day go perfect. We highly recommend DJ Bones for a wedding or any event requiring a quality DJ! Thank you!

    A higher DJ bones for my wedding on July 22 of this year. I cannot express how impressed I was by the service him and his wife provided. I still am getting compliments on the Music. Everyone loves the games that he recommends the bride and groom play, and the amount of time he put into my wedding made our big day special. The best part about hiring DJ bones was that I never had to worry. He was there on time, he filled the holes in the reception with music or a game, and got everyone involved in on the dance floor. He truly made my reception a success!

    Jimi was incredible - we had an outside wedding and there was a massive thunderstorm but it didn't slow him down! He has his own tent and lights that kept him dry and he took requests from many of our guests without getting frustrated. His wife also kept the wedding going so organized without asking for a penny more. DJ Bones is the way to go.

    This was the best choice that we could have made for a DJ! He was always on top of things and always communicated effectively. His wife was also wonderful to work with; they are a great team who work together to get things done. They went out of their way to provide an excellent experience for our wedding reception. We are so thankful that we chose DJ Bones!

    DJ Bones was more than just a DJ. He was an entertainment coordinator, fun inspirer, and funk bringer. While my wife, then fiancée, and I were still in the throes of understanding what all needed to be done with our wedding, Jimi and his wife were quick to jump in with suggestions/recommendations based on their clearly extensive experience with weddings and other events. Not to mention his signature spins, scratches, and mash-ups on songs we all know and love; DJ Bones didn't just queue up a few tracks on a playlist, he created an experience. With Bones turning the tables and his wife helping coordinate, I really can't see how our event could have been any better!

    Jimi is awesome to work with. Our daughter canceled her wedding, and Jimi refunded my full amount minus the deposit. He sent me a check the day after I contacted him about the cancelation. I will definitely be using Jimi next time without even considering anyone else!

    No wonder DJ Bones has been voted best DJ in the Carolinas! Jimi was very attentive to the bride and groom's style of music, how they wanted their ceremony to go, every detail of the reception...He came up with the brilliant idea of putting a mic on the groom so that people could hear their vows - something that the bride and groom didn't think was necessarily important at first because it was just between them. But the vows were amazing and they had to be heard and witnessed! Jimi and Anne were terrific at keeping the reception moving at the right pace. I have never been to a wedding where the dancing was non-stop and the floor was more packed. The music choice was perfect for the crowd and he mixed one song into another so seamlessly there was never a lull - people were always dancing. This was a true celebration and DJ Bones helped to make it a terrific party! Thanks Jimi and Anne!

    DJ Bones went well beyond my expectations as a DJ and MC at my wedding. His wife, Anne, and him were delightful to have and were critical in creating the perfect evening. The lights, the games, the music, and the announcing all layered together on our special day. It went so well because DJ Bones put in the time and effort before the wedding to learn about my wife and I, what music we liked, and how we saw this special day coming together. He provided significant insight into what to do and what not to do in planning the evening without pressuring us into a decision. Brilliant job Jimi and Anne! Thank you for helping make our special day perfect!

    A great party!
    Jimi was the DJ for our wedding party this past Saturday and did a great job. He conducted himself very professionally and delivered all as promised. The reason I hired him was because after reading reviews for several DJ's one of the things that kept being talked about in Jimi's reviews was how he was able to get everyone up and dancing, and having a good time. He did not disappoint. All of my guests had a ball. If you are looking for a great DJ, Jimi is your man.......

    My husband and I got married this past November and it wouldnt have been the same without DJ Bones. He is SO much fun and my family and friends couldn't stop complimenting him and his wife! They provide beyond quality service. We had two different venues for our ceremony and reception and DJ Bones provided music/sound for both venues. There was a scheduling error with my reception venue and he took care of the issue and made sure he was ready for the reception even with the unexpected setback. DJ Bones is someone you can trust, he's an honest business owner, he will go above and beyond for your event, he will provide quality service and affordable pricing. My husband and I cannot say enough good things about him. Thank you so much for your work! You've made a lifelong client with us.

    My Go To DJ
    Everything we DJ Bones was great! After making initial contact with Jimi we had a phone call that was very professional as well as, informative as it eased my mind with choosing him as our DJ at our corporate Christmas party. After all of the specifics were discussed for our party I sent over a song request list made from all the employees at our company. He used this list as a template for what to play for the night and it was a hit! He set up in plenty of time and had music playing before the guests arrived. He played some great classic holiday hits while we ate dinner and held speeches then turned up the fun once the dancing started. His backdrop lighting as well as the lighting placed around our venue was also a nice final touch. He will definitely be my go to guy for next corporate event!!!!

    DJ Bones - The Best
    Jimi and Ann, AKA "DJ Bones" do so much more than spin some tunes and dance tracks for an event. With Jimi on point as DJ and MC and Ann as the thoughtful and insightful coordinater they are the premier Master of Ceremonies you need for your event. They provide a unique and personal experience for each event they serve at. We hired DJ Bones for our daughter's wedding and were very satisfied with this decision. They worked with our daughter, fiancé and us at a couple of pre-wedding planning appointments to get the play list of music and order of events just right. They were gracious and helpful in making sure the ceremony would be perfect. The day of the wedding they arrived early and set up with new high quality equipment. Jimi had the music just right and moved the order of events in a timely manner. Ann offered to be an impromptu coordinater and was extremely helpful in making sure the wedding and reception went smoothly. The wedding was outside and the weather was challenging. The reception was cut short by a strong wind and rain storm. Jimi and Ann worked hard to sure every event at the reception was accomplished. They remained live until the last minute and ended up taking down and packing up their equipment in the rain. In our opinion, "DJ Bones" is the right and absolute best choice for your event. Thanks Jimi and Ann Matt and Deborah

    Holiday Party Review 2016
    Jimi impressed me from our first conversation. I selected him from the others because of his professionalism, attention to detail, experience and the great ratings from others who'd hired him. I appreciated his willingness to go the extra mile to customize our music if needed. The lights that he provides adds an extra layer of color/fun too. There was another party in the same venue on the floor below us, and several times we had some unexpected visitors because they liked our music and party better than theirs. Great job Jimi (and Anne)! Thank you for helping to make our party a fun one!

    DJ Bones Rocked Our Wedding
    There is only one word that truly describes my DJ and his Wife; AWESOME!!!! Oh my god, I could not have pulled this wedding off without DJ Bones and his wife Anne. Our wedding had a variety of guests. From colors to ages to religious beliefs. Not a single soul left our wedding reception without having a blast and being completely exhausted. Our DJ kept the music flowing, so well in fact, that my guests didn't even realize he was stalling them because the food was late. The games were so much fun. The variety of music being played covered everything from my parents and a few elders from church slow dancing to my grandchildren doing wobble dances. And his wife Anne kept everyone moving and events flowing like clockwork. I could not have done it without either of you. If anyone is having any event where u want professional, fun, awesome entertainment, you have to have DJ Bones.

    Jimi's attention to detail is nothing short of perfection. His patience to work with me as a bride and us as a couple (my husband and I) was so reassuring that we made a great choice in our DJ!!! He kept the party going and really understood our choice of music and what we were about as a couple. I can't thank him enough for all he did. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing an AWESOME DJ for their special day.

    Jimi was great. We hired him for our wedding and I like He was willing to meet with us multiple times to discuss everything that goes into a wedding. He and his wife were very helpful through the entire process. He didn't get a chance to play all of the songs we requested because of the crazy wedding we had, but the ones he did play were great. He plays a good variety of music which got everyone dancing at the wedding. His light show equipment is also amazing. It makes for a really fun environment. What we liked most was probably the fact that he is so down to earth, friendly, and easy to work with. We are already recommending him to others.

    DJ Bones is outstanding and went above and beyond to make this wedding perfect. Jim and his wife are a wonderful team and kept everything running smoothly. The bride and groom both said that their wedding was way beyond what they thought it would be and much of that is because of DJ Bones and his lovely wife.He even dressed to match the event and in 98 degrees did not want to change into something cooler since it was an outdoor wedding reception. I highly recommend DJ Bones to anyone for any event. The smiles and laughter on the bride and groom's faces as well as their guests' faces. . . PRICELESS! They are both beautiful people and I am so grateful we connected through this celebration of love. Patty Poole

    We were doing a back yard wedding. Little did we know how much work would be involved! We hired Jimi because he sounded happy and motivated on the phone. I had 6 or 7 other Dj's respond in the same price range but he seemed a little different so we went with him. Well not only do you get a fabulous Dj that knows how to change things up if your crowd doesn't respond the way you wanted by the songs you pick your self before your event! He can see the non-responsive crowd & has the experience to take the wheel & make it a sucess!! SHEW!!! After dinner and before Deseret we ran out of plates, he got on his microphone & announced it so positive & fun no plates but grab a napkin!! His wife Ann who assist him at no extra charge, helped as the wedding planner and food everything .. they are a team! The only bad thing in after thought is they one dont know how valuable and awesome they are or they are just super nice plp!! Our backyard wedding was a success because of them. We didn't just hire a Dj we hired a true event coordinator! !! Thank you so much! I would like to stay in touch with you guys!! I feel like I made friends and everyone is still talking about it!!! Music was fantastic plus everything else you did helped with the food. .I can't say enough! !! The music for the hook a hoop contest super fun! I honestly have been embarrassed for not paying you enough! !!!

    Jimi along with his wife, Ann, was the DJ for my wedding ceremony and reception April 2016. I am not a great planner and was of course going crazy with all the details. The two of them really helped create a plan for the ceremony and reception. His wife really took charge and got the wedding guests and wedding party in order and told everyone what they needed to do. Without them, it would have been a mess, no exageration. I was impressed with the lighting they used. It really set the mood I was going for and made it beautiful. Both were professional, dressed nice, on time... all the things you hope for, but so much more. I have a picture, I wish I could post on here, of our first dance with the DJ and his lights in the background... it was so beautiful. Thanks DJ Bones.

    We hired Jimi & Anne for our wedding receptions & they were absolutely amazing from start to finish! They were wonderful & professional from the first meeting we had with them to the last goodbyes of the evening! Jimi DJ'd our brunch reception first, from 1-5pm, & we asked for big band music, Frank Sinatra, Eric Clapton, etc. & Jimi nailed it. Our guests loved it & we got tons of compliments on the music selections. Our 2nd reception was from 7-11 & this is where we were ready to party mixing in country music, 80s music, hip hop & more. Again, Jimi absolutely killed it. He had everyone dancing, & singing along until the very last dance! He worked with our Maid of Honor who needed music that he didn't have for her EPIC speech. & they all made it happen. We had a Russian tradition song that was sung to our wedding party & Anne was so great helping to coordinate full drinks for everyone & ensuring that we were ready to go when that time came. Truly, I can't say enough wonderful things about their services. It was a wonderful, perfect, evening & Jimi & Anne were fantastic!!! We will use them for any & all DJ services in the future & I can promise if you hire them you will not be disappointed!!

    We hired Jimi to DJ our company Christmas party after meeting him at a wedding that he was working. He did a fantastic job at both venues. He is very professional and energetic. Everyone enjoyed his song lists, light show and the entire evening. Jimi is very easy to work with and we will definitely use him again in the future!

    We hired him to do our Christmas Party. Jimi, was very professional and we loved his light show and song choice. He asked for a song list and we couldn't get anyone to participate, so I asked him to do 70's and 80's and throw in a few current songs and he did a great job of choosing for us!! Everyone was coming up to me to say what a wonderful job he was doing. Highly recommend!!

    We are thrilled that we chose Jimi and his lovely wife to host our corporate dinner. He did a wonderful job of meeting our expectation with music and a wonderful light show. He was there early and set the mood for dancing and socializing. We have plans to use him for our dinner next year as well.

    We worked with DJ Jimi for our daughter's sweet 16 surprise party. He was very approachable, professional and knowledgeable about the types of music for teens including line dances. We worked to put together the best ever part for my daughter and she enjoyed DJ Jimi, his fun attitude, and his ability to bring life to a party. We will definitely be using DJ Jimi in the future and would gladly recommend his services to anyone.

    We loved working with DJ Bones! He was very easy to work with, open to feedback and suggestions. He was flexible with our mixed cultures and flawlessly blended two types of music. We loved the amazing LED wall that he brought! By the end of the night, nearly every single person at the wedding was up and dancing. We would highly recommend him.

    Jimi was an awesome DJ at our wedding!!! Leading up to the wedding he was very involved and attentive starting with meeting and talking and then going to the venue ahead of time so he could prepare for his set up. We talked back and forth several times leading up to the wedding because he wanted to make sure everything went perfect for our big day!!! The music was awesome and everyone had a great time :) I highly recommend him and his wife!!!

    Jimi was fantastic to work with. I found myself looking for some on-course entertainment at a half marathon event I was producing only three days before the race. Jimi was able to jump in and get the job done on very short notice. He was prompt, on time, thorough in his preparation, and had great energy and a killer setup. I plan on working with Jimi again and couldn't have been more pleased with his services.

    Jimi worked our backyard wedding party for an intimate crowd and was awesome. He and his wife truly exceeded our expectations and we could not imagine anyone else working this or any future event. Can't wait to see them at the company holiday party!

    DJ Bones and his wife were awesome! We've never hired a DJ before so we really didn't know where to start. After consulting a friend he recommended the thumbtack website for our search. We saw DJ bones ad and contacted him. He was very nice and after we gave him some info about the party and playlist he took it from there. His light show and sound equipment really made our party a huge hit. His wife who is also a army veteran had some words of encouragement for my son that is heading to army boot camp in just a week. They really made our sons going away party a huge success. We will call them for our next party.

    Jimi Bowen was the Dj for the car show that I put on April 18th. He was there at 8:30 so he was 30 mins early and by the time he finished setting up everything people were starting to show up. He and his wife were there for the whole duration of the car show and got involved with the crowd and made a good atmosphere for the show and people. You will never meet two people as patriotic as they are.

Q&A

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
YouTube videos are so helpful. I also have a few friends in the DJ/ AV field that keep me up to speed on new technology.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I've always been an audiophile. My wife bought me a set of turntables for my birthday one year and it just kinda took off from there.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Family fun events. Fun venues where people are cooking out and playing games just having fun with their friends and kids. I love these kind of parties.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I did a wedding for a young couple that never even been to a wedding before. They had no idea what to do or how to go about making their day special. I was basically the wedding coordinator/DJ/MC/wedding planner all in one. It went swimming and both families where impressed and thankful of the job I did.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Try to have a vision of what you want the event to "feel" like;Traditional? upscale? casual? or high-energy? You need to have a "wish-list" of songs that would fit the mood of the event.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
How much behind the scenes effort I put into an event before the event even happens. I probably spend 20 or more hours putting together the music and mentally running through everything in my head before I even arrive at the venue.
