Experience
The Masters of the Ceremony is owned and operated by Adolphus "Danja Mowf" Maples. The son of a 70's soul singer, Maples enjoyed sifting through and listening to his father’s records, 8-tracks and reel-to-reels as a child.

    Absolute best dj!

    Beyond a doubt, Masters of Ceremony absolutely CRUSHED it at our wedding.

    First and foremost, the DJ—Adolphus Maples was perfect with the timing and tempo of every aspect of the ceremony and reception. From the bride walking down the aisle to the bridal party introduction and first dance, not a moment was wasted and absolutely nothing was rushed or unnecessarily slowed down. During the wedding reception, Adolphus has everyone up and dancing the entire time. Our only requirement when we booked him was, “we want everyone to be dancing and having a great time.” On this point, he absolutely killed it.

    In addition, we also booked the photobooth through Masters of Ceremony. We thought this would be a fun way for people to make lasting memories and to have a tangible photo they can take home. When we booked, my wife and I envisioned a simple photobooth. Nothing too crazy, but something that checked the boxes. We couldn’t have been more wrong. What they set-up went above and beyond what we could have ever asked for. In addition to a backdrop and camera, Masters of Ceremony had two photobooth assistants helping with poises, giving everyone props and hats, and of course—occasionally ‘making it rain.’

    Overall, Masters of Ceremony through the DJ service and the photobooth helped to provide such an important component of our wedding. They didn’t just deliver a product—they delivered an experience. I would absolutely recommend them for any wedding, party, or family get together that requires a DJ!

    Excellent DJ and Hype Man

    My husband and I booked Danja as a dj for my wedding. He was awesome and our guests loved how he kept them entertained while on the mic. He has an electric personality and really enjoys his career. One of the best surprises was that he actually put together a small highlight video of our wedding reception : ) I had no idea he took the footage! I also got to follow-up with him post-wedding to get his thoughts on other wedding related items. He is easy to talk to and work with. If you choose him, you will be glad you did!
