    Best DJ compay despite the chaotic times!

    We absolutely loved working with Jay and his crew! We ended up booking Matt for our small backyard ceremony and everyone had nothing but great things to say about him! He was calm as a cucumber despite all the chaos of a backyard wedding and made the perfect mix of music for us. We can't wait to have them back for our larger wedding in summer of 2021!

    We will be ready for the BIG PARTY next year Jess, in the meantime it was so beautiful to handle your intimate family affair as well. Soon enough, we'll be celebrating again. All the best to you both!

    Best experience ever!

    From the very first phone call down to the very last email, which was two days before our wedding, Total Events was top notch! Jay Raven is completely laid back but at the same time totally professional. He matched us with our DJ Matt after just that first phone call and he completely nailed it! Matt was amazing!!! He showed up early just to make sure everything was just right and with how stressed I was because I was running late, he was a complete Godsend! They go over every single detail to make sure that you have the perfect day and it paid off! It was perfect! They throw one hell of a party and you will NOT be disappointed!!!
