We had the best experience working with Adolphus and his team this past weekend. Not only was he prompt, attentive and communicative leading up to the big day as we planned with the couple, but executed a flawless ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. His team was very professional and made our jobs as coordinator's easy, being excellent emcee's throughout the event. The reception was a small crowd and a mixed age group, but Adolphus had no issue keeping the energy high and the dance floor rocking all night! Our clients were thrilled. We would definitely recommend their DJ (and photobooth) services to anyone.Sent on 07/11/2019

Absolute best dj!
Beyond a doubt, Masters of Ceremony absolutely CRUSHED it at our wedding.Sent on 07/25/2019
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!Sent on 07/01/2019
