    JJ was a joy to work with. Very accommodating, flexible and fun. He was a pleasure to work with on all levels. He worked within our budget and did a great job at the event in expressing our wants and needs.

    Great DJ to work with

    Desert Music is very reliable and prompt at ensuring you get the best of the best from start to finish. Great communication throughout the entire process from requesting information, to book to the actual event. Definitely would recommend Desert Music to anyone looking for someone reliable and at an affordable price.

    All Academies Military Ball

    JJ is very professional and easy to work with. He was quick to answer my emails and phone calls. He even met at our venue several times before the actual event. JJ located specific music needed for our military event. Once the formal part of the evening was over, JJ was able to get everyone up and on the dance floor having a great time. I would highly recommend him.

    Married 10/20/2018

    I knew the second I spoke with JJ on the phone that he was just what we were looking for, for our wedding. He was so genuine, personable, and responsive to all my requests. Planning a wedding many states away is not easy, but we could not have been happier with our DJ choice. He put on a great evening for us from the ceremony to the reception and did things just how my husband and I requested - not pressuring in any way! You can’t go wrong with JJ and Desert Music Entertainment - my family highly recommends!!

    JJ has been wonderful!!! My dad had passed away a couple years ago and my husband found him online as he came highly recommended. We are in California and we were able to send over all of our photos and music to him through Dropbox. He created a beautiful video that I will have to cherish forever and I am so grateful!

    Three years later I needed to have two montages created for a convention that I was planning for my son's nonprofit organization. I called him and he even remembered us! Again, he has created two beautiful and heartwarming videos of our children for the nonprofit!! He even provided us with the two montages at a discounted price since we were a nonprofit!

    JJ is super friendly and very easy to work for and its great that we can do everything online! He was very professional and I would recommend him to anyone!! I will definitely use him for future projects!!

    We are SO impressed with JJ Michaels!! From the first email I sent inquiring about DJ services, I knew Desert Music Entertainment was the right choice for our wedding! JJ walked us through the entire process and kindly answered our questions along the way. He provided suggestions as we needed them, but also allowed us to make our own personal choices that were important to us. The ceremony and reception music were all perfect! JJ kept the dance floor alive the entire night and made sure everyone of all ages had a good time! I cannot say enough good things about JJ and Desert Music Entertainment. My husband and I would highly, highly recommend them! Seriously, you don't have to look anywhere else!! Thank you, JJ for making our wedding day perfect!

    JJ was the best decision we made to have our wedding run smoothly and with the flexibility in itinerary planning. We wanted very specific music played at our wedding and JJ found every single one of our required music and our wish list. Every song played was hand picked by either of the grooms or by one of our guests. It made our day as unique as the grooms themselves. JJ was the emcee we didn't realize we needed to make our day even more special. JJ kept things moving smoothly while allowing us the little moments to ourselves. JJ's professionalism was outstanding and his knowledge of his craft was without measure. JJ's equipment was top of the line and played our special music selections clearly and beautifully crisp for everyone in the building to hear. JJ was not only emcee, but JJ was an important part of the overall experience and ease of what was next or how to keep the festivities flowing. We would highly recommend JJ for your wedding or special event.

    From the moment we began speaking with JJ Michaels (the owner) we knew we were in the right hands. He is friendly and very experienced. Music was one of the top things on our list of important elements. Both my wife and I were DJ's in college and music lovers. Almost immediately after the engagement we started our music list. J.J. kept the evening moving along and mixed our music to maximum effect. In the planning stages leading up to the wedding J.J. helped us with our timeline and all the details of the reception in a way that truly made us feel like we were cared for. We highly recommend Desert Music Entertainment!

    As I prepared for an event to honor my retirement, I secured the services of this company to put together a photo montage of over 150 visual images I supplied, synchronized with 5 songs I chose. I was completely pleased with the result, so professionally and engagingly done. Further, JJ was remarkably responsive to the many messages I sent as the montage was in production. An excellent choice!

    Desert Music Entertainment was suggested to me by my wedding venue. JJ was great to work with! My wedding was planned last minute, due to our original venue cancelling and I am so glad it happened. Our wedding was perfectly amazing! Even though we were all kind of rushed to get everything put together, JJ was organized, helped take the pressure off me in getting things done and since he worked at the venue many times before we were able to talk over the phone and get things settled in minutes. The day of he did a wonderful job in moving our wedding along according to our schedule, he was very animated and fun when it came to our games and the other personal touches we threw into our wedding. He kept the party going and wrapped everything up perfectly as we wanted. I appreciate all the help and effort he put into our wedding and I am so glad we were referred to him. Thanks for everything!

    JJ was an amazing DJ and emcee for our wedding in November. He is very friendly yet professional and knows what he's doing from the very beginning. We knew we could rely on him since he also DJ'd my sister's wedding and I would recommend him to anyone who wants their big day to go smooth.

    JJ Michaels was the DJ that helped us with our wedding and he was absolutely amazing. He was a big part of why our wedding night flowed together so perfectly.

    When we first met with JJ Michaels I loved that he had price rate sheets with breakdowns for what each package contained. He was very easy to talk to and even had extremely helpful suggestions for our music and wedding. Honestly after meeting with him we felt that there was no other choice for our wedding. We called him back a few hours after our meeting and hired him.

    After we hired him he met with us at the venue on several different occasions. We even changed where he was supposed to set up on one of his return visits and it was no problem for him at all. He had great communication with us and was always available via emails and/or phone calls. One of the things that stood out to me the most was how he actually touched base with us and sent us reminders. JJ Michaels didn't just leave it up to us, he understood that we were being pulled so many directions for the wedding planning so he wanted to make sure we were taken care of.

    During the wedding night he really helped move some of the events along and keep people on track. He helped announce all key events like a surprise dance with my Grandmother and the mock send off that we did at the end of the reception.

    We obviously had music that we hand selected to be played during our wedding but JJ Michaels did an excellent job filling in the gaps with music that was similar to our tastes that we hadn't thought of. JJ Michaels of course took requests from the people attending as well. We had people of all ages and I would say over half of the people at our wedding complimented the music selection.

    All in all I would highly recommend Desert Music Entertainment for your events (Especially JJ Michaels)!
