John was the best. He DJ'ed out wedding at Montbleu and he blew everyone away. So many of our guests kept commenting on how awesome he was. John was fast at responding to all our inquiries, sets up a personal event page to add music and wedding details, as acts as the MC of your event. He didnt take a break, kept the music playing all event, and was just a fun guy to have at the wedding. We couldn't have been happier with John as our DJ and highly recommend him to anyone looking for a DJ. Also, his rate was better than others in the area, doesnt charge for set up/breakdown, or charge for driving.Sent on 10/19/2017

The easiest 5 star review I could give is to John from High Sierra Sounds. He DJ'ed our wedding in September and I give him credit because it was FREEZING in the barn where our ceremony was. I saw him in gloves, ear warmers and a jacket, but he was still kicking out all the great music despite this.Sent on 11/26/2017
John was fantastic to work with, his website is super easy to use for making payments and picking songs. Working with him closer to the wedding date was great and he made us feel at ease with his organization. It's obvious he has a passion and is great at what he does.
He really look our music suggestions and played songs that were PERFECT for our personalities. He really kept our crowd engaged too, announcing all the milestones for the night with charm. I'd recommend him for any Tahoe-area wedding, he was absolutely amazing.
