Such amazing talent and personality!

James really made our reception so much fun! I told him we just wanted a big party and he by far exceeded our expectations! We got married almost a month ago and people still talk about how fun our DJ was.

KC's best DJ

To put this simply, James was absolutely amazing and well worth the cost to book him for our wedding.

Do you need someone flexible? James.

Do you need someone who can entertain your guests with humor, games, kickass playlists, and have that "Hollywood" smile? James.

Do you want someone who will go above and beyond to help create an atmosphere that exudes fun? James.

I have no doubt that there are great DJ's across KC with varying costs for booking, but if I held another event that needed a DJ I would book James without hesitation.

Saved the day!

At first we planned to have a friend be our DJ for the wedding. Well that fell through and we decided to find a professional who could ensure our guests were well cared for. We needed not just a DJ but a Master of Ceremonies and James delivered beyond our expectations! James was a pleasure to work with. At our pre-meeting I couldn't believe how we'd say something vague like "I kind of want some 'happy' music" and then he could turn that into specific song suggestions! That helped a ton. Also, on the day of the wedding he wasn't just there to play music - he kept us on schedule, kept everyone engaged and even pulled off a game we requested and our guests loved it! He did all this professionally and enthusiastically. Fantastic energy and I'd definitely recommend him to others.
