A fantastic crew to trust with your wedding music and MC duties

We hired Abernathy for our wedding November 18, 2023. Tina was responsive from the first contact email we sent, and promptly provided us with some helpful information and a contract. As we approached the big day, we were provided a planning packet that covered every part of a wedding celebration and specifically provided options for music preference, songs to play and songs to not, special music choices for different parts of the reception, and other incredible details. We then had a meeting with Tina to review that packet and plan the whole event, and she was very professional and knowledgeable and helped to bring the whole thing together. Before the big day, we were easily able to make adjustments and changes to our plan and Tina was very responsive in adjusting and coordinating, both ahead of time and on the wedding day when timing may have other wise been off or chaotic. She coordinated our first dance, mother son and father daughter dances, all of the music and all announcements over the course of the evening, from announcing the arrival and departure of the trolley service we hired, to our cake cutting, and even cleared the venue for us at the end and gave us time for a private final dance. Tina and Andrea helped make the whole event go PERFECT, which is not at all an easy feat and should not be taken for granted in the context of a wedding. We cannot recommend enough trusting Abernathy with your event or you big day. You will not be disappointed.

Fantastic DJ for our backyard wedding

It was such a pleasure working with Abernathy Entertainment for our backyard wedding. We had about 60 guests. I (Bride) have sensitivity to noise levels, and Tina made sure that I was comfortable the whole night with the noise levels. We had a great time and danced more than we thought we would. Tina was such a delight to work with. I myself was the one communicating with all of the vendors in the planning process, and she really made it so easy. She was nice and flexible and really made the day stress free for me. I really appreciated the time she took during our Zoom meeting prior to the wedding. She took her time and was so thorough. Going into the wedding weekend, I was worried about a lot of things, but our DJ was not one of them. I cannot say enough good things about this company and DJ. It is a lot like herding cats to get our friends and family to move to the next activity on the schedule, and Abernathy Entertainment did a phenomenal job.

Amazing 12th Birthday Party

I don’t typically throw big birthday parties, but this year my daughter turned 12 and wanted a Taylor Swift themed birthday. So, I knew we needed to find a DJ to help with music and entertainment. Abernathy was the perfect DJ! Tina and Arkia made this a party we’ll never forget. We had about twenty 11-12 year olds over to our house, and they kept them dancing, singing and laughing the whole night! Arkia had such a fun approach with these girls and she made it super fun. They mixed games, with dancing and sing-offs, which was the perfect blend of activities for this age group. Thank you, Tina and Arkia, for a night we’ll never forget!

Abernathy Entertainment was the lady DJ team at a recent wedding I officiated. They were great! Very nice to work with, good quality equipment, and professional. They played the music for the ceremony and provided me with a quality hands-free microphone to use. I enjoyed working with them and hope to again in the near future.

I met these guys at a Bridal Expo and though I didn't get to hear their DJ'ing skills I was impressed with their professionalism and presentation. I have full confidence in using them myself or referring clients to them. I understood and could relate to the fact that they are a newer company and they seemed super eager to do a great job.
