    Total events for the win

    If you are a bride and need help deciding on who to go with for DJ/lighting TOTAL EVENTS is the company for you. Jay Raven is extremely professional and wiped away all my worries. They are so thorough and organized. You are provided your own website and select all the songs you want to play from the start of the ceremony to last song of the reception. Music is picked out and played for mom/son dance and father/daughter to music to play while cutting the cake. So thankful I found this company. Jay is a great guy. We had DJ John. He was amazing! We nailed our father daughter dance with the help of John playing multiple songs at various start and stop times. Couldn't have pulled it off without him. The reception was a blast and can't thank John enough for brining the good energy and awesome music. We also purchased additional lighting with stringed lights over the outdoor pavilion creating a warm ambiance. Thank you TOTAL EVENTS!
