Fantastic experience

Cody and Savannah were so easy to work with and the whole team leading up to our wedding day was fantastic! Cody kept us in the loop when things were coming up and he was super flexible when I changed my last song for the night. He called the night before to confirm all the details and I cannot say enough about the quality. My guests have been raving about what fun they had!

Amazing & fun!

So happy we hired ASE DJ! They were all so fun and professional with a lot of experience! AND they had worked at our wedding venue many times before, which was helpful! We HIGHLY recommend the DJ + Drummer combo. Definitely worth the money and it was just all around very cool! A lot of our guests thought we had a whole band there!! :) They were also great with kids since my niece was the only kid there, they provided her with a little drum to play with and she has the BEST time!

So professional and easy to work with!!

Tim and his team were great to work with. The tools they created were easy to use and make selecting a playlist easy. Our DJ Jared kept people on the floor all night and checked in with us often!
