Rick is the MAN!
From the first email, we knew Rick was our DJ. He is so enthusiastic. He really cares about how you want your reception from the first dance all the way until the end. He is friendly, easy to work with. The way he lets you choose exactly how you want your reception to go down takes away any stress. His track lists are easy to navigate. All you need to do is dance. We also purchased his photo booth. The operator in the photo booth is nice and accommodating. The props are great. This is your guy in Mammoth. Search no further.Sent on 09/14/2019

Best DJ ever!
Rick is the freaking best! From the very first email through the last moments of our reception, he was fully committed and so amazing to work with. We had so much fun with him and his photo booth crew. The only DJ to go with Mammoth! Thank you, Rick!Sent on 09/15/2019

Best dj ever
I have heard horror stories of DJ's not playing crucial songs, keeping the beat going, or mispronouncing names...etc. WITH FRESHTRACKS NONE OF THAT WILL HAPPEN, HE IS BY FAR THE GREATEST! Rick, made sure everything I wanted as the bride happened on the day of the wedding. Since this was my first wedding, he took the time to let me know how wedding days typically go, the timing, speeches, dances...etc, this was out of the kindness of his heart. He has a DJ Map that maps out the entire wedding and is incredibly helpful to go through and sets you up for complete success. My family, friends and I have some crazyyyyy energy, he ignited that fuse and we lit our wedding venue on fire with all our energy. It wouldn't have been the same wedding without him and for that I am truly grateful. Thank you Rick from the bottom of my heart! If you want a hands down kicka$$, energy filled, detailed, organized and thorough DJ, pick this guy!!Sent on 08/08/2019

Best DJ there is!
One of the easiest and best decisions we made during wedding planning was booking Rick from FreshTracks Entertainment as our DJ! If you are able to snag him, you will definitely be happy! From the start, Rick was very easy to work with and coordinate details with. Rick is extremely energetic and personable but still so professional! We had Rick for our ceremony and reception, and everything ran so smoothly. The ceremony sound was perfect and the reception was an awesome party that got everyone on the dance floor. At the last minute during our reception, it seemed that everyone wanted to go first for their toasts. I was worried for a split second that I’d have to figure out who was going in what order but Rick handled the situation right away at ease! I had no worries the second we booked Rick and he definitely delivered the perfect DJ experience! All our guest had such a blast on the dance floor and couldn’t stop raving about how great our DJ was and how it even looked like he was having the time of his life. You can really tell Rick goes out of his way to help make your day perfect and loves his job. You need to book FreshTracks!Sent on 08/30/2019
FreshTracks Entertainment's reply:Thank you Nicole! Your wedding, your crowd was so LIT! I will always hold you and Tyler dear to my heart as my most ideal clients. That AfroMan sing along moment, the bridesmaids and Tove Lo GETTING IT! You started that conga line! Trap and Hip Hop, Yea the late night slow jams were so powerful at your wedding. I knew I still wanted to incorporate your original first dance song idea because I knew you two had strong feelings about that track. I'm So happy that created a moment. Even your dinner list had such a different feel with that reggae vibe. I'm grateful to have been a part of your wedding and your pumping dance floor! Thank you so much for the kind words.

Rick!!! I can’t thank you enough for your amazing work and how easy it was for me to work with you. You always listened to me and provided guidance for music selection and always kept an upbeat personality no matter what even when I called you the night before the wedding to make changes and you were busy at another but still you responded when you were done! You left the dance floor constantly moving, my guests said, “they have never been to a wedding like mine, where the dance floor was never empty” that is a huge thing!!! Thank you Rick for hosting and DJ’ing not only my reception but also my ceremony. It feels so good in knowing your DJ and knowing that he can give you the party You want and more!! Thank you to infinity ♾Sent on 07/25/2019

Rick is the Best!!!!
Rick is top notch the "BEST" and truly made our wedding the party we envisioned. From the first call we had I knew he was our guy. Rick is super responsive and goes above and beyond . We had our first meeting on the mountain snowboarding, Rick spent time getting to know us which gave him the opportunity to pick out a tracklist for our day that fit us perfectly. Everyone was raving about how great the music selection was and he kept the party going! In addition he was soo accommodating we had chosen to give a performance singing a song and he did everything to make it happen perfectly.. You cant go wrong with Rick he is 100% on top of things, responsive and goes above and beyond. Thanks Rick for making sure our wedding was the best ever!!Sent on 08/01/2019

Throws an Amazing Party!
Richard was truly an invaluable person on, and before our wedding. We met with him in person and talked with him over the phone, where he helped us to plan songs, playlists, schedules, and routines for the ceremony and reception. My wife and I went into our wedding with very little knowledge on how to plan and execute a ceremony and reception. Richard is incredibly knowledgeable and experienced, all while putting us at ease with his enthusiasm and support. He knew all of our other vendors, and worked alongside them to create a highly cohesive environment. Again, we truly could not have planned our wedding without his support. The reception was beyond amazing! Richard is a master at reading the crowd and the energy of the people. He kept the energy and excitement going all night long, which is not easy when you have a diverse crowd (and rowdy siblings!)! We received countless compliments after the wedding/reception, with all singing Richard's praises. Simply put, it was an amazing night with no dull moments. And we credit that to Richard Kunkel's Fresh Tracks Entertainment. You won't regret choosing him for your event!Sent on 08/11/2019

Above and beyond...a true hype man!
If there's one thing I can say about Rick, it's that his energy is infectious. One thing you can be weary of is that people won't dance at the wedding or be too shy....that was certainly not the case for my wedding. Rick has an amazing ability to gauge the crowd and how they respond to certain music and make the right decision in music choice to keep the party going. Not only does he take the time to make sure he plays the right music, but he also assisted in the set up and break down for our ceremony that went off without a hitch. He is definitely so easy to work with and does everything to make the day go by seamlessly.Sent on 07/22/2019

Very best dj! Above and beyond our expectations!
First, Rick was the #1 recommended DJ to book for your wedding. Each person we asked he was the go-to man. I was ecstatic when he had our date open! From our first conversation, he made this experience SO much easier with his music mapping and plan of the day. We are from out of town, so when we came into town in January, Rick asked to meet with us and we talked for over an hour. He really tried to get to know us and you could tell he really wanted to feel our vibes and see our vision for our wedding. HE NAILED IT! He helped me find the song to dance to with my dad which and had multiple playlists to share when I needed help! Rick brings so much energy, happiness, and GREAT music for all guests! Our guests did not stop complimenting how amazing our DJ was. The dance floor was packed from the first song to the last! When our ceremony site had to be changed an hour before start time (due to wind), Rick acted like this had been the plan the entire time and never missed a beat! It made us not worry and we never questioned anything because Rick and the team had things completely under control. Our wedding day was absolutely perfect for us and Rick had a HUGE part in that. He's the type of person you feel like you've know for years. We will always be so grateful to have had him as a part of the biggest days of our life! I hope someday in our lives again we will need a DJ, Rick will be our guy!Sent on 05/11/2019
FreshTracks Entertainment's reply:Our first meeting at the coffee shop our connection was so seamless. When you say "feel like you've know for years" when I left our meeting I knew YOUR wedding was going to be amazing, we were meant to work together. Your video is my Favorite!

Your search ends here
DJ Rick for the WIN!!! Not just a DJ, he was an amazing MC. We can start off by saying that he kept everyone on their feet all night long, which he absolutely did, but what really needs to be highlighted is the attention, support, and direction he gives before, during, and after the event. The moment we met Rick, almost one year before our wedding, we knew instantly he was the guy for us. He was able to tap into our vision after just a few words of explanation. It felt like we had known him for years. It was the most comforting feeling to know that one element of your wedding (one of the bigger elements) was in the capable hands of someone we trusted. Throughout the year Rick kept in touch with us even going as far as giving us weather updates and helping with our event timeline. He was an integral part of preparing and pulling off a surprise live performance for the father daughter dance (which turned out amazing). Throughout the wedding Rick engaged with our guests on a level that even they thought he had been part of the family. We will never be able to express our deep appreciation for Rick’s up-beat, fun, energizing, and inviting personality. Maybe the biggest compliment is to share that one of our 11-year-old guests now wants to be a DJ when he grows up.Sent on 03/18/2019

RELIABLE, fun DJ, great photobooth
Rick was everything I could have asked for in a wedding vendor. He listen to me and delivered exactly what I asked for. He was on time professional and required very little from me. Now that I have had a wedding I can tell you that one of the most valuable things you can find is somebody who can work well with little direction and still produce a quality products. Rick did just that and more. I spent very little time with Rick and gave him minimal help with our wedding music because I'm terrible with music. He was able to come up with a great set that not only spoke to our personal preferences but pleased the crowd as a whole. Rick was on time for our wedding and had everything set up on time.Sent on 11/07/2018
As a DJ he played all the songs we asked for, oncue, and he kept everyone on the dance floor. Besides our own satisfaction with him we've had plenty of gas come up and tell us how wonderful he was and how much they enjoyed him.
We also rented his photo booth. It was up and running in the location that I requested despite its difficulty for his team. The photo quality was wonderful and the assistant was friendly and attentive. We had a small hiccup at the end of the night because it was 28 degrees out and the computer started to freeze, but I can hardly hold that against Rick and his team. All of the photos from the night were delivered promptly by mail in a thumb drive. I will cherish our goofy photos forever.
I highly recommend Rick for your next event. Thanks for everything!

FreshTracks Entertainment goes above & beyond!
If you’re getting married in the Mammoth area, you HAVE to go with FreshTracks Entertainment! Rick is so much fun & keeps the wedding energy at an all time high! From the very beginning of asking for pricing packages and planning, he’s always very responsive and professional. He helped guide us through recommendations of songs for areas of the ceremony and reception that we didn’t even know we had to think about. All of our guests complimented us on how awesome the DJ was and how well he adjusted to the crowd. The fact that he has a wonderful relationship with the other top vendors (photographers / videographers) in the area really makes a difference because of their collaboration and synergy. Another plus - he offers photo booth add-ons for any of his packages with a bunch of backdrops to choose from. You won’t be disappointed with choosing FreshTracks!Sent on 10/21/2018

Rick was such an asset to our amazing wedding day and night!!! He was very responsive throughout the entire planning process, flexible in working with our requests , and such a fun guys to pump our guests the entire night!Sent on 10/21/2018
Our lakeside ceremony was very unexpectly windy and he worked very closely with the officiant both before and during the ceremony to give tips to make sure everyone could hear! Everyone heard everything (even with 30mph + winds! with his sound equipment and tips!!
At the reception he was so good at reading the vibes in the room and played a great variety of songs we requested along with must have old school songs and new age beats!! The dance floor was packed the entireeeeee night!!! Now even after the wedding, our guests keep commenting on how great of a DJ he was! He definitely helped create the perfect night for us!
FreshTracks Entertainment's reply:This night, this couple, their family and friends, WOW. This was one one of the finest sets I've ever spun, this will always be dear to my heart. The organic and romantic start to this dance floor set the tone packed the floor and the wedding was lit. The ceremony, the flows, dreamy wedding. Thank you Katherine and Raul!

Best dj on the mountain!

Thank you so much Rick for helping us create memories that will last a lifetime! It definitely wouldn’t have been the same without you!

Best DJ, Hands Down.
Rick was hands down the best DJ I have ever seen at a wedding, and I am not just biased because it was my own. From the second we met ( or he spoke with anyone really) he made everyone feel so comfortable and at ease. A few guests have made comments about how they just thought we had a really fun friend, before they realized he was the DJ at the reception. I mean, people were up on tables dancing, that's how fun he kept the dance floor. During speeches he inserted the best sound effects, and our reception flowed so smoothlySent on 10/22/2018
Simply put, if you want the best DJ in Mammoth, and your guests to tear up the dance floor, he is your guy!
FreshTracks Entertainment's reply:I love these pictures, YES, You and Austin getting low! And the Table dancing, YES, first i've seen at the venue and it felt so right! I remember the staff pulling people down off the tables. Legend! Thank you Sarah for having me and thank you for getting after it on the dance floor!

Best DJ - Made our wedding perfect
When you’re planning a wedding, you have to make a lot of decisions…. One of the BEST decisions we made was hiring Richard (Rick) Kunkel with FreshTracks Entertainment. From our first initial meeting, when he didn’t shy away from the fact that I wanted more Rap and R&B than a typical wedding, I knew he was the one. Rick went above and beyond for us on our wedding day. He had to set up two different locations, outside, while providing his own power source. We utilized him and his perfect personality & charm to release our guests to dinner, to cheer us on during our bridal party flip cup matches and most importantly to keep our dance party going. My husband and I often reflect on the wedding and we constantly talk about how Rick was the perfect person for the job. If you’re looking for a DJ that is professional, talented, goes with the flow and most importantly is FUN, then Rick is your guy. Truly the best decision we made: our guests had an incredible time, our dance floor was always full and the music was perfect. Thank you again Rick!Sent on 01/08/2019

Kristin · Married on 08/18/2018
Rick was absolutely beyond amazing and one of the easiest of our vendors to communicate with even though we lived four hours away from our venue! From our very first meeting, he showed up punctual, full of energy and ready to work! Not only were my husband and I almost completely unsure of the direction we wanted to go, but we also are horrible at names of songs and artists! This was no problem for Rick, he took no time in getting to know what we were hoping to accomplish with our music and even added his input as to what would make our experience even greater! This was all from our very first visit together!Sent on 10/07/2018
As we continued to collaborate on our music mapping, Rick was never more than a step away! He offered to send ideas, and play lists that he felt suited our needs and was always open to questions via email, phone call and text! The communication was unbelievable considering we were basically planning a wedding via emails! About two weeks before the wedding we were hammering out all of the details and decided to move the dance floor outside so we could enjoy a party under the stars! Rick had a back up plan for everything in case of the weather and he was always ready to change up anything that needed to be!
Then came the big day! Rick showed up promptly on time and had everything set up and ready to go! We were beyond blown away and my guests still cannot stop talking about how amazing our Dj was! From the ceremony music to the grand entrances to the dance floor, he did not miss a beat! He followed all of our requests and stayed away from anything we were hesitant on, and still was able to work in some amazing suggestions from our guests! The highlight of the evening turned out to be the dance floor under the stars! Rick rocked the party all night long, to the point where no one wanted to leave, but rather continue dancing!
I would recommend Rick time and time and time again! At this point, I am just looking for another reason to hire him!
FreshTracks Entertainment's reply:Hello Kristin and thank you for the kind words. This wedding was one of my all time favorites. I knew we connected musically and had similar tastes. I knew we were going to be outside, I decided to bring an extra sub and just go for it on the audio, (some venues don't appreciate this, props Mammoth Mountain) the sound quality and the energy on the dance floor was high. I could feel how close of a group you all were. I felt the lighting was amazing, simple just market lights and stars. Then there was Mr Roboto, An impromptu live tribute dance battle by the groom and a close friend, WOW. So happy to be a part of Kristin and Josh's wedding celebration. Thank you.

If you’re looking for a DJ in the Mammoth area hire Rick. Don’t even think about using anyone else, you’ll regret it. He was so amazing to work with and played all my jams all night! Made our wedding so much fun!!
FreshTracks Entertainment's reply:And Sick Jams they were! Ustina and Anthony have rad taste in music and we connected there right away! Organized laid back couple with Snow industry background and shred style. Dreamy couple. How about that "Barbara Striesand" Game Changer. FUN. Thank you USTINA!

Rick was the best DJ ever for our Mammoth wedding!! We had one in person meeting and a couple phone meetings to make sure everything would go smoothly on wedding day. We filled out a "wedding overview" and "music mapping" worksheet that helped the planning go flawlessly. Wedding day was sooooo fun with Rick playing the music we had suggested and really reading the crowd!! EVERYONE was up and dancing, from the bridal party to our grandparents. Rick was born to be a DJ!! You can't go wrong choosing him for your wedding!Sent on 08/14/2018

Stop looking and book Rick as your DJ!! He is seriously the best out there. Rick is full of energy, personality, and knows his music.. He even has a cool feature where guests can request songs for your wedding. All of our guests loved him and music was on point !! Everyone was dancing until the end of the night. We loved working with Rick because he gave us ideas and suggestions on areas we weren't sure of. He also offers different wedding packages you can choose from different price ranges. Look no further because Rick is your DJ!!!! Million stars if we could :) Thank you Rick for making The Morgan Wedding unforgettable!!Sent on 07/16/2018

Rick was the best DJ we could've have asked for! He was so organized leading up to wedding, he had created a music map that really helped me understand how many songs we needed and what the songs where going to be for.
