Flexible and professional
We hired Kelton to DJ our wedding and gave him the full picture of everything we wanted— hyped introduction, packed dance floor, etc. Then COVID-19 happened and everything changed. We could not longer have the packed dance floor, so Kelton had to adapt his music and he did. He worked with us to create a fun atmosphere that was more focused on hanging out and having fun then a rave style dance party. He did a great job with our ceremony, making sure everyone could hear and all the mics were placed appropriately. And he was great with helping us time introductions and first dances. We highly recommend Kelton at Marquee Artists!Sent on 09/01/2020

Super helpful and communicative thus far!
We hired Marquee Artists for our end-of-March wedding, which we just had to postpone due to the coronavirus outbreak. Up to now, we've had a wonderful experience with Kelton Higgins. In planning, Kelton has been super detail-oriented and communicative, and we were confident we were in good hands thanks to the very detailed google spreadsheet he uses to get every last detail about what we want for our cocktail hour and reception! We enjoyed picking the songs we want to play and speaking with Kelton on a planning phone call. When we decided to postpone our reception for health and safety reasons, we reached out to Kelton and he couldn't have been more understanding and helpful. He is working with us to move our deposits to a future date or provide a refund if our schedules don't align, which is much appreciated! In this time of great uncertainty and stress, working with Marquee Artists and Kelton has been one thing we didn't need to worry about, and for that we are eternally grateful!Sent on 03/16/2020

The BEST of the best!!
“HIRE KELTON. HIRE HIM TODAY.” That is exactly what one of my friends said when we realized that the DJ we were considering for our special day (on 12/15/2019) was the same one she and her husband worked with for their wedding! And that’s what I now say to any engaged couples looking for someone who is the perfect combination of professional, organized, and fun. I’ll even break it down for you:Sent on 01/21/2020
PROFESSIONAL: With two weeks to go, we unexpectedly had to change our game plan for the ceremony music, due to a logistical snag with some musician friends who gifted us their talent for the cocktail hour. Kelton didn’t bat an eye and swooped right in, gathering all the music we needed, which included a 19th century Scottish song not very well known on this side of the pond. He even nailed every single pronunciation of every name, asking to have them sent by voice memo so he could honor everyone accurately. Also, during our Father/Daughter dance, my dad got so emotional that he couldn’t go on for much longer, and as soon as I caught Kelton’s eye, he knew EXACTLY what that meant and slowly faded down the song to wrap things up. Now THAT is attention to detail! So incredibly thoughtful.
ORGANIZED: Kelton’s incredible spreadsheet that outlines everything down to the minute, his constant availability in the months leading up to the wedding, and his immense expertise all made it possible for us to focus on the most important parts of the day: getting married and having fun! His AV setup for the ceremony was also perfect for what we needed on the riser, and something we didn’t even think about twice once he and our venue coordinator connected to schedule his walkthrough and setup.
FUN: Kelton was seriously one of the best parts of our wedding day! Not only did we have a blast and got to enjoy our celebration, but MANY of our guests made a point of letting us know just how excellent Kelton was in his song choices, well-timed announcements, and ability to read the crowd. We had a SUNDAY BRUNCH wedding, and yet could not keep people off the dance floor, that’s how good Kelton is!!! On top of being an amazing DJ, Kelton is also a really, REALLY great guy. By the end of the night, Kelton even danced with our guests during the final song, which everyone absolutely loved.
So, starting where I began: when it comes to Kelton Higgins, HIRE HIM TODAY. And to Kelton: thank you for building the soundtrack of our love story, and for making our marriage something not only felt and seen, but also heard!
When a DJ walks in with REAL turntables, we KNOW it's going to be a party and Bobby Jae from Marquee Artists did NOT disappoint! He knew exactly how to read the crowd like a pro and know when people were enjoying a song and when to quickly change to a different song so that the floor was never empty. He had us sweating and we were just taking pictures! Bobby had songs queued up to play that he knew somebody was going to request before they even requested it...it was amazing to watch! He was dressed professionally but with a modern style (not a dj in a rented tuxedo...ugh!) By far our favorite DJ of this year!
