    Great experience throughout

    John was a perfect DJ for our recent wedding. He great when it came to planning for the big day, and when the day arrived, the experience went swimmingly. If we needed a DJ in the future, I wouldn't hesitate to use him again.

    Perfect night

    Having John as our DJ/MC for our wedding night was the best decision we made! In the beginning I thought it was a bit pricey and out of our range but my husband made a decision to go with John and we were so happy we did. He is very organized and so much fun!

    Excellent DJ/MC - Personable, Fun, Stress-Free

    Choosing DJ Cox Entertainment was one of the easiest and, looking back, best decisions we made while planning the wedding. There was no stress or anxiety throughout the planning process or the day-of. Both my wife and I would like to thank John for all the time and effort he put into helping make the night a blast!
    My wife and I talked to different vendors in the area. As soon as we left the prospective meeting with John, we knew we wanted him to be our Master of Ceremony - and are so glad we did. He's professional, fun, and dedicated to making your special day stress free. He is personable, well organized, and was easy to contact. We appreciated his experience and knowledge with the planning leading up to the wedding day. During the reception, John did a fantastic job reading the room and keeping the fun going throughout the night. Guests did not want to leave the dance floor. Over the days and weeks afterward, we've had a lot of friends and family tell us how much fun they had throughout the night, which would not have been possible without him. A DJ/MC is not something to skimp on and can make or break the night. DJ Cox Entertainment is well worth it.

    DJ Cox not only performs, he sets the bar for MCs.

    On behalf on my wife and I, we would like to genuinely thank John Cox with DJ Cox Entertainment for providing us with the best day of our lives! Christa and I both work very busy lives so when we were looking for a DJ/MC to run our night we knew we had to choose very carefully. We knew we needed a MC who could single handedly run our night and integrate every aspect of the ceremony to the reception with our other vendors. DJ Cox is that MC. He’s professional, he sets his own bar above the rest, his equipment is superior, and by the end of the night he still manages to surpass his own standards. Christa and I not only loved him but all of our family and friends kept coming up to us asking where we found him! Planning sessions with him were like talking to a friend and every time he was more prepared than us. John, provided not only professional tips/ tricks! But, was willing to aid in other areas where we required advice & planning assistance! If you want the ultimate experience for your wedding, DJ Cox is your man!

    DJ Cox was an integral part of making our wedding flow smoothly

    My now husband & I were pleasantly surprised with DJ Cox. We had no idea how good someone could be- very professional yet down to earth. Our guests were also very impressed with his professionalism and creativity.

    He goes above and beyond with customer service, personal detailing to taste and with his equipment.

    You can tell he is passionate about giving the bride and groom the best experience he is able to so they and their guests have a special party to remember.

    I can’t highly recommend him enough!

    September 14, 2019 Wedding

    DJ Cox did my music for my wedding ceremony and my wedding reception! 10/10! He really pays attention and listens to what you want. I was very particular with the music I wanted and he followed exactly what I wanted. He was great at organizing and cuing ! He was also very friendly and treated my husband and I like family!

    Supple Wedding

    Choosing to have John as our DJ/MC on our wedding day was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding! He met with us a couple times before the wedding to get to know us and get a game plan for our wedding. He was always quick at responding to any emails we sent him. But what sticks out to me most is how he handled our night. The caterer was an hour late and we quickly came up with a game plan that made it seem like it was the plan for the night all along! Then he literally had the dance floor jam packed from dinner until the last song! All we wanted at our reception was for our family and friends to have an amazing time and have the dance floor full. Didn’t matter what age he entertained everyone! We had endless compliments on our DJ! I don’t think it could have gone any better! Thanks for making our day/night one we will never forget! #ItsRadToBeASupple

    Dj john cox was amazing!

    I don't think my husband and I could have chosen a better DJ for our wedding. He was absolutely amazing. He played everything we wanted, kept it PG early in the night for grandparents/kids, he was interactive with guests, and had everyone dancing all night.
    Prior to the wedding (we were planning from CA and were married in IA), John was extremely helpful. When we cane home for visits before the bug day, he made time for us and truly made an effort to know us, attended the rehearsal, interviewed our parents and so much more. It made our wedding night even more special than we could have hoped for.
    Our experience was as perfect as it could get and I believe DJ John Cox contributed to making the entire day run as smoothly as it did. He was AMAZING.

    Everything you need.

    DJ Cox is absolutely worth the investment. He is a complete customer service professional and an adept entertainer.

    My wife and I researched a lot of DJ’s. It was a priority that we knew and trusted our DJ to be our spokesperson and custodian of “fun” at our wedding & reception. From our first research meeting, DJ Cox gave a lot of great feedback about our plans. He didn’t sell himself to us with a pitch, but instead built our trust and confidence with his passion for his craft.

    DJ Cox emcee’d our reception with grace and professionalism. He filled the dance floor with a strong start, continued to set the mood through ‘downtime’ when guests were distracted by the sunset and beautiful weather, then finished strong with a dance floor that was just as full at last call as it was the first song. He even helped coordinate between our other vendors to make sure our mood and focus weren’t interrupted. Cox deftly catered to obscure requests, surprises to and from the wedding party, and was a fantastic representative for us to our guests.

    From our first meeting to tear down, DJ Cox provided everything we were looking for. Our guests raved about his work, and he is someone we would hire again in an instant.

    The Best!!

    John was fantastic and we cannot recommend him highly enough. From our initial meeting, he was incredibly helpful in planning details of our day that we hadn't even thought of. He took time to get to know us so we felt like we had a friend as our MC for the evening. He was exceedingly professional while keeping a relaxed and fun vibe. Communicating song requests ahead of time was simple with an easy-to-use app, and he played a great variety that kept our guests dancing until the very end. We couldn't have asked for better music and entertainment and would absolutely hire him again!

    150% Worth every penny

    John was absolutely amazing from the first meeting! When we were picking our DJ for the wedding we had no idea what we were doing. Through the whole process John was fantastic! He was easy to meet with, get a hold of, and was a great asset for our wedding. With his help we had a blast at our wedding, the music and lighting he provided went with everything we could imagine! He even had our photographers signing and dancing along!

    He made our evening complete!

    DJ Cox was FANTASTIC to work with! He was relaxed, flexible and fun. We were planning our wedding from out of state, but that didn't change the level of service and support he provided us one bit. He was willing and able to check in with me whenever I wanted. He executed exactly what we were looking for day of with little guidance and because of that, our wedding and reception was everything we wanted it to be - a big party full of love and happiness! I DEFINITELY recommend reaching out to John!

    DJ Cox is the Gold Standard for wedding DJs in Eastern Iowa

    John is a true professional. He was always very organized, direct, and punctual. He met with us several months before our wedding to figure out our preferences of music, activities, and overall vibe we were looking for. He hit it right on the nose. John had the dance floor full from the time he started the music, until it was time to leave. He truly made the experience seamless, and we were very pleased that he kept our guests engaged and having fun throughout the night. He was well worth it and we would highly recommend to anyone who asked us. Thank you, John!

    We had such a great time with DJ Cox at our wedding. He was so responsive to our requests! His personality was so fantastic- we felt like we had known him for years. Everyone at our wedding got up to dance because he played such a wide variety of music that EVERYONE loves. He went above and beyond the DJ role with his fantastic MCing as well. He made the each part so easy for us, and we are so grateful he made our day so wonderful.

    I give you my word, this is the guy you want to be your DJ!

    My best friend told me when we were planning our day to make sure to get a great DJ it will make or break your party. DJ COX you made our party and I can’t thank you enough! From first correspondence to the last it was a perfect 10. And as far as value he is not the cheapest, but there is reasons for that he has great equipment and he knows exactly what to do! I will be recommending him to all of my friends or family getting married.

    Best. DJ. Ever.

    My review is simple: John is one of the most friendly, most flexible, reliable and worth-the-money vendors I’ve ever worked with. As two hardcore workaholics, my now-husband and I, had NO time to mess around with someone that wasn’t professional and ON IT. Just to tout his flexibility, our first meeting had to be rescheduled a couple times due to snow and ice and other Iowa pleasantries :) John was delightfully responsive and met us when and where WE were able to convene. He carefully and meticulously walked us through (among several lovely meetups) what our perfect wedding reception would look like. He always made us feel like we were in charge, but with a firm, knowledgeable background to guide. And then the cherry on top? Our reception went EXACTLY the way we planned: intros, speeches, vibe, (lights! Get the lighting package!), and of course the music. Hire him. Now.

    It starts off with the very acceptable pricing. You then get to see his attention to detail when you have your meeting with him. His experience shines through. He has a lot of ideas. He keeps your day and night flowing perfectly and knows how to keep the crowd dancing. Perfect!

    Outstanding!!!!

    We had an amazing experience with John. He made our wedding day exceptional and was amazing throughout the entire reception. I would highly recommend him for anyone looking for an excellent, responsive and professional DJ that understands how important it is to set the mood for a wedding reception. Additionally, John helped set the reception hall with his additional back lighting and his own sound system.

    John was the DJ for my daughter's wedding on 6/2/18. He was amazing! Very personable and made every effort to get to know the couple and make sure their wedding was run just how they wanted! He had the sound system to run the outdoor wedding as well as the indoor reception. We received many compliments from our guests and were even asked if he was a personal friend of the bride and groom because he seemed to know them so well! (He had never met either until after we booked him as the DJ for the wedding.) I would highly recommend DJ Cox for your next event!
