    Best DJ Ever!

    I will have to say I was thoroughly surprised with how good the DJ was. Every song played was what WE wanted. Everything was executed perfectly from the Ceremony to Cocktail Hour to the Reception. Do not hesitate in booking, Danja is the real deal!

    DJ and Photobooth

    Our DJ, Danja Mowf, was incredible! He was so excited about providing the entertainment for our reception that it made us even more excited than we already were. He listened to exactly what we wanted regarding music and he definitely delivered the day of. He played non-stop incredible music that had people singing and dancing the entire time. His MC skills are also great. He was so creative with helping us put together our wedding party reception entrance that folks are still talking about it! He checked in with us throughout the evening to see if there was anything that we wanted him to play and he listened to the request of our guests and made the music flow throughout the night!

    The photo booth was also amazing. There was always a line of people waiting to get in there and a few guests went to the booth more than once. The attendants are great!! They made sure that everyone was having a good time and that they took great pictures! They even but together a guest book for us with some of the photos from the booth and presented it to us before the end of the reception! We were provided the link to all of the photos taken within a couple days following our wedding! All of the guests were emailed link were they could access their own photos immediately after the photos were taken.

    I would definitely use this company again. They got the party started and kept it going all night. Our goal was to have people up out of their seats and Danja Mowf definitely helped to make this happen for us!
