Professional, stress free, and amazing music

Let me start off by saying how professional Ryan (business owner and DJ) is. He truly made our day special. Ryan was able to not only DJ and emcee our event, but he also set up our Photo Booth and took care of day of duties.

I've known Ryan for several years and to say that I am honored he could host our event is an understatement. He showed us each package and what he was able to provide before we signed. The day of, Ryan was a rockstar!! He played the music we chose and made the day sooooo much fun. He's so easy to work with and the outcome was amazing! He kept the party going! So much fun! The Photo Booth also made gifs! The guests loved it and kept going back for more. This company is the best! Definitely recommend using them for your wedding.

So glad they did our music!

Wow! To say Ryan did a great job, is an absolute understatement. He was so easy to work with, so responsive, and overall helped us to execute exactly what we wanted for our big day. He is great at finding the right tunes for the right moments, but also for guiding the timeline along. He made sure everything that we wanted to happen on that day that was in his power did. I highly recommend!
