The best DJ!

DJ OP was such a pleasure to work with from start to finish. During our consultation, he made sure that we incorporated everything we wanted for our special day. He provided unlimited support and really did whatever he could do to make us happy. Everyone truly had a blast at the wedding and is still talking about it to this day! DJ OP has become our personal favorite DJ for all of our events!

…..A Sneaker Ball Evening Affair

Parkes Entertainment did an AWESOME job with the planning and execution of the music portion of my event which was a 50th Birthday Sneaker Soirée (not a wedding, but had many elements of a wedding reception) I asked for a specific grouping of songs for my grand entrance - he delivered. I sent a short list of randomly selected music for the party portion of the event - he delivered that and more. AND he filled in the perfect recorded music where a live musician was supposed to play but unfortunately couldn’t make it on short notice. Thank you so much!! I will make sure to call Parkes Entertainment again for future events.

Amazing Wedding DJ

Omar was such a joy to work with for our wedding! He was able to get everyone on the dance floor, had such a great personality, and knew how to read the room. He provided high quality sound outdoors for our ceremony and indoors during the reception that truly amazed me. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a DJ no matter the event!

Omar Parkes
Owner/DJ

I am the primary DJ for Parkes Entertainment. I go by DJ O.P. I originally from CT but I have been living in Charlotte since 1996. I've been DJing professionally here for 15 years. I have a passion for music of all genres. I specialize in playing R&B, Old School, Hip Hop, Reggae/Dancehall (I'm of Jamaican descent, so this is my passion), Top 40, and much more. I pride myself on being able to play radio-friendly versions of any song. I use all top-of-the-line industry-standard equipment and have the capacity to provide an enjoyable experience for diverse crowds of all sizes.

I firmly believe that great customer service is key when conducting any business. This is especially important when dealing with engaged couples. Weddings are a special event and I am accustomed to working closely with couples to help them bring their specific vision to fruition.
