Best DJ Ever!
Jeff was awesome from start to finish, highly organized, communicative and fun! He is in the wedding business, so he's not there to just play some music from behind a table, but rather create an experience for the evening and keep the flow going. He was super attentive to us the day of and made the reception a ton of fun. People were dancing until the very end and we had guests telling us for days after how incredible he was, how he was the best DJ they've ever seen at a wedding and how much fun they had. We also had a lot of kids in the wedding and he got them out dancing most the night, they had fun and he even got those that said they wouldn't dance out there. He creates a fun interactive evening you will never forget!Sent on 07/15/2019

Energetic and Attentive
We first met Jeff when we attended our cousin's wedding. He made their night so much fun that we approached him about our upcoming wedding.Sent on 07/15/2019
During our initial consultation the thing that I noticed was his professionalism and passion for our wedding. He took the time to make sure we understood all of our options, provided a initial agenda for the wedding which was extremely helpful to us in coordinating with all of our other vendors. Jeff was always available by phone and email. We called him a few times to bounce off some ideas and he gave excellent feedback.
With my family being Greek, we wanted to play some traditional Greek music and have Greek dancing. Jeff was completely receptive and blended the Greek dancing into the schedule. He already had Greek music for us to choose from which made that even easier.
The actual wedding day was so smooth. Everything went according to Jeff's schedule. He worked with our coordinator and the banquet staff to make a few last minute changes which we didn't even notice.
You will love having DJ Compass at your wedding. Having seen Jeff from the perspective of a guest and as a bride and groom - DJ Compass will be the smartest and best decision you could make for your special day.

Excellent! My entire family had a blast!
I hired DJ Compass after seeing him DJ at another individual's wedding. I loved his energy and how he was able to get EVERYONE on the dance floor. Kids, "too-cool-for-school" teenagers, adult singles (who are also "too-cool" sometimes), long time married couples, ME, parents, grandparents - I mean, everyone! It was absolutely fantastic! We had a couple of consultations with him prior to our wedding, and they went really well. DJ Compass took time to understand our day-of timeline, and made some great suggestions that we would had not thought of. The day of the wedding went so smoothly, and a large part of that was because of him. I had many of my friends and family members tell me that it was the funnest wedding they have ever been to! DJ Compass was very communicative, responsive, knowledgeable about what typically works best at wedding receptions, and worked well with our reception venue and other vendors. We had a larger wedding reception (about 180 people), and DJ Compass managed to keep everyone focused in a very fun way, which kept the reception moving along on as scheduled. He also was able to incorporate Greek music into our reception (which everyone LOVED). A huge thanks to DJ Compass! I highly recommend him!Sent on 07/15/2019

Fantastic DJ and MC.
Jeff knew exactly what we needed with the type of wedding we had and the demographics of the people who attended our reception. My daughter and her husband were very happy. Jeff was very helpful and knew exactly how to keep our reception party guests engaged.Sent on 07/19/2019
Thank you for a wonderful experience!

My wedding had very unfortunate events one week before hand, and everything was handled wonderfully. I had worried for nothing. He had also traveled a very long way to DJ. I loved my experience with DJ compass. And the songs where a great line up and the kids even had fun! I have nothing but wonderful things to say. And that I hope you pick Jeff/ DJ compass.Sent on 06/26/2019

I absolutely can not praise Jeff enough. He elevated my wedding from what would have been “good” to “phenomenal”. He is a wonderful entertainer and coordinator- which are super important qualities for a wedding DJ. He has a fantastic and charming personality and I could not be more pleased with his performance, from soup to nuts. My crowd of over 100 was thoroughly entertained the entire night due in large part to how engaged Jeff was the entire time. He even went above and beyond while we were setting up, helping out where he could. If you are considering Jeff, please just do yourself a favor and book him NOW. Thanks again for being a fantastic DJ and ultimately, friend of the family.Sent on 05/18/2019

10/10 Would Recommend
Jeff was amazing during our wedding! He kept the energy up, the dance floor full, and the guests amused. I would recommend him to anyone searching for a DJ in a heartbeat. Thanks for making our wedding so memorable DJ Compass! :)Sent on 01/30/2019

Super Outgoing and Professional
DJ Compass, aka Jeff, started doing DJ services after seeing how expensive DJs were during his own wedding. And despite his humble start he was fantastic. My mom and I were looking for a cheaper DJ and were walking passed him at the Seattle Wedding Expo when I first saw him. He clearly has a nerdy side to him, which is different than most DJs, but I would highly suggest looking into him more before you disregard him. I watched him go up to a little girl in front of me and purposefully pick a pink flashing ring (the rings are an iconic piece for him) and get down so he was eye level with the girl and give her the ring. I was sold; I thought it was adorable. I got in contact with him later so that my husband could talk to him as well. We live in Port Orchard and were able to schedule a meeting with him in Tacoma as a half way point. My husband then meet with him, and we agreed we really liked him. He was very understanding of our schedule (I worked late) and would call after 8pm so we could both be present for conversations. His wife does a lot of the emailing and they both very responsive. For events he always dresses in a black tux. He has two sets of equipment so if you have multiple areas that need music set up he can accommodate. When we hired him his rates were 200 an hour with minimum of 4 hours. He charges extra if he has to stay the night somewhere due to the distance (which we paid because our wedding was in Tacoma). All of our guests really liked him. I am still getting compliments for his excitement and DJing abilities. The rings were a hit and everyone had one, if not multiple, as they danced. He had a great plan that we followed almost exactly for the timing of wedding/reception. He knew a lot about different traditions done at receptions and knew how to add them in so everything flowed right. And day of when things changed he did it without struggle or problems. I couldn't have been happier.Sent on 03/19/2019

So much fun!! Above and beyond!!
We hired DJ Compass after seeing him DJ our friend's wedding. After our initial meeting with Jeff, we just knew his energy, excitement, and pricing for the services couldn't be beat. EVERYONE we talk to raves about how fun our wedding was, and it was 100% because of Jeff. There's a fun game he does so the wedding party can eat, and those are some my favorite pictures-- everyone is laughing, running around, and having an amazing time. There were a couple of times when the dancing lagged for a minute, and Jeff never failed to bust out a trick up his sleeve to get the party train going again! Our ceremony music went seamlessly as well (equally important to the party music, of course!). After the ceremony and signing the marriage license, Jeff even came upstairs with a small plate of our appetizers so we could relax for a few minutes. It was so kind and above and beyond, I was so touched! If you are considering DJ Compass and you want a seamless ceremony and a customized, hugely fun reception, choose him! You will not regret it!!Sent on 06/17/2019

We interviewed over ten DJs and found DJ Compass to be the best one for our wedding. He is super amiable, empathic, and just an overall fun guy to work with. On our first meeting a couple came up to him (who had heard his pitch) and asked for his business card because they were so impressed. Unlike most other DJs he has a unique approach to guaranteeing a blissful wedding. Specifically, he is not just a traditional DJ who spins songs and sits back while the party continues, but also a masterful MC (Master of Ceremony) that makes sure that the wedding stays on track, that everyone is involved in the dancing, while leading games and dances. Another unique aspect about DJ Compass is that he is part wedding coordinator and works very closely with the venue, photographer, and interior decorators to make sure the wedding goes as smoothly and close to plan as possible. He paid careful attention to the Bride and Groom by making sure we were fed, both with food and drink. Finally, he was always willing to deviate from the schedule where necessary, including punching in a few more toasts from family/friends, changing the song lineup, and staying later than we had originally planned. Not surprisingly, after the wedding many people remarked on how he was the best DJ/MC they had ever seen at a wedding. It was a pleasure to work with DJ Compass and we are so happy to have selected him.Sent on 09/23/2018

Jeff was absolutely amazing while working our wedding reception. We both received countless compliments during and after our wedding from our guests and members of the wedding party. He went above and beyond to make sure everyone was having a blast. He is without a doubt worth every penny and more!!!Sent on 08/21/2018

Jeff was AMAZING! I knew from the end of our consultation that we were in great hands. Our wedding went off without a hitch and we couldn’t have asked for a better DJ and MC. He kept the party moving and had to have sound in three different locations and it all sounded wonderful. Thank you DJ Compass for making my wedding amazing.Sent on 08/12/2018

We hired Jeff to DJ our wedding ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, and reception. WHAT A HIT! From the start, Jeff was enthusiastic and professional. We requested a PARTY, and he delivered. Jeff gave us everything from acoustic guitar for the ceremony, jazz and blues during cocktail hour, Frank Sinatra at dinner and every great dance song produced in the last 40 years during our reception. The music was fun, and the dance floor rocked the entire night! The glow rings were a blast... I didn't think my guests would go for it, but I could not have been more wrong. In the middle of my favorite song, I looked at the DJ table to give Jeff a thumbs up, and saw him busy in a dance-off with a few of our guests... AWESOME! Show up at your wedding ready to have a blast and let Jeff Olsen do the rest. HIRE JEFF!Sent on 09/22/2018

The BEST wedding decision I made
DJ Compass was the BEST decision I made when planning my wedding! He was very professional and organized when helping my husband and i figure out what we wanted from our wedding reception. I’m a member of the Church of a Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and normally wedding receptions that happen in our culture are more like open houses, and not a fun, dancing reception event. I wanted my reception to be different, and because of DJ Compass it was!! I have never been to a reception with so many people dancing who would normally be unwilling to dance, and so many people having an absolute blast! Jeff also kept the reception organized and moving and helped make sure what we wanted to happen, happened. He is so fun and we are so thankful that we chose him to help us out with our special day!Sent on 10/27/2018

The best dj ever
Jeff was absolutely amazing!! I cannot recommend him enough for any wedding. From having already planned ideas to knowing exactly what song to play and when, I had no doubts at any point in the day/night about music. He had people on the dance floor that I had never seen get up and dance. Not only that, but he led group dances throughout the night that I still have people talking about how fun they were. I was so impressed with his professionalism throughout the whole process, I could not have asked for a better DJ for my wedding. Jeff truly takes the time to get to know you and what you would like for your wedding, and it is evident that he cares about you and what you want. I am so glad that we found him and he was a part of our day. I still have people coming up to us saying how amazing the DJ at our wedding was.Sent on 11/04/2018

AMAZING! There aren't enough words to express our gratitude to Jeff Olson for the tremendous job he did. We had SO many compliments from guests, saying it was the most fun wedding they had ever been to and it was mostly due to Jeff and his hard work. He was everywhere he needed to be, brought us some appetizers while we did photos, checked in with myself and the bridesmaids all evening to make sure things were happening the way my groom and I wanted.Sent on 05/15/2018
At the end, someone requested he play the Can-Can and in seconds it was being played. The best man used his phone to play the Star Wars theme during his speech and again, in moments Jeff had it playing on the speakers. We joked that he should be a wedding coordinator because he was more on top of everything than anyone there!
The only way you would not want to hire Jeff (DJ Compass) is if you want a stuffy, formal affair - however, I'm sure he would handle that with the upmost professionalism and grace imaginable. He is tremendous at reading the crowd and adjusting accordingly.
Of all our vendors, he is the only one that did not do something that raised a complaint from the crowd or bridal party. Not one ill spoken word, only praise. Thank you Jeff!!!!

Long story short: Jeff is awesome, recommending him to other couples is an absolute honor and joy!Sent on 05/15/2018
The planning details: We met Jeff at the Tacoma Wedding Expo, and out of all the DJs there, he immediately stood out to us with his professionalism, and fun, welcoming personality, which is so important for a DJ/MC.
Jeff followed up after the Expo, but he wasn’t pushy with his communications, unlike some other vendors we met there. Jeff was super accommodating regarding the meeting location, and once we talked through Jeff’s approach to MC-ing the wedding, we were 100% sure that we wanted Jeff as our DJ. What sold us the most about Jeff was: 1. his super fun, bubbly personality, 2. the fact that he is mainly a wedding DJ, which made him a pro at addressing possible awkward/ stressful situations. Jeff was very helpful in the planning process, he shared the day-off coordinators he enjoyed working with, and through his recommendations we found our day-off. He also agreed to have a second meeting a month before, which isn’t “required”, but was important for us as a piece of mind. Lastly, Jeff was very accommodating to us timing wise, as we filled our “song” preferences at the very last minute, basically less than a week before the event. We also shared a list of songs we wanted played for dancing, cocktail hour, reception less than a week before the wedding, and Jeff had them all, and played them as we instructed.
The Big Day: Jeff brought the party! Every single guest (we swear), and all other vendors had complimented our DJ to us after the party. Every single guest, of all age categories, was dancing. And I believe we owed it mostly to Jeff (and some to the signature cocktail ;) ). He actually led the limbo and the cupid shuffle. Jeff was also very thoughtful. When we were doing our portraits during the cocktail hour, Jeff brought us some appetizers. Well, I don’t know what else to say to convince you that Jeff is the BEST DJ for your wedding!

I seriously couldn’t wait to leave a review for this dj. He is amazing. He saved the day also. Our photo booth company cancelled on us and didn’t inform us until an hour after they were supposed to be there. He made some calls, pulled some strings, and by the time the reception started, he had a photo booth in our venue!! He got on the dance floor and danced with the guests, they all loved his games, and he kept the party rolling until the very last song. We got so many compliments. It was awesome!!! Thank you so so much Jeff - aka DJ Compass. I will recommend you to EVERYONE. And so will our guests!!Sent on 04/01/2018

Let us start this review by saying Jeff, aka DJ Compass, is perfect and you should hire him.Sent on 11/19/2017
Jeff rocked our wedding! During the ceremony, he played every song perfectly on cue. During the reception, he was so comfortable on the mic and the dance floor. He engaged our guests, played fun games throughout the night, played all the songs we requested, and kept the party going right up until our venue cut-off time.
He’s responsive, attentive, professional, and hella fun. By far, he is the best wedding DJ in all of Western Washington. Look no further – Jeff is the DJ you should hire.
