We worked with Harold Purdy on our wedding. Early in the process, he told us that he took his job very seriously and he seemed to really understand weddings. We discussed many options for our wedding, including schedule, what to do, and of course music. He took note of everything we wanted, and never missed a detail, nor a name. He was superlative in both planning and execution, as I have to tell you that our wedding was incredible and that was mostly due to him. He was the one vendor that truly excelled. The music selection based largely but not entirely on our suggestions pleased a heterogeneous crowd, including many favorites from the 50's to the present, ranging from doo-wop to rap to folk to rock to pop, and both his selection and his arrangement of the music proved to be very effective during both dinner and dancing. Our wedding rocked. Many people told us they had a great time, and by watching all of the smiles on their faces both on and off the dance floor I know they weren't just being nice. I believe that that our guests will join both of us in remembering our wedding forever, and I don't see how anyone else could have beaten that. Thanks, Harold.Sent on 10/02/2014

We had DJ Harold Purdy for our wedding an he was - PERFECT - AWESOME - AMAZING!!! I first saw him at my buddy's wedding, and thought he did a great job. Working with him on our wedding, we were really blown away by his personal touches. We had some special requests for a dance we put together, an anniversary dance, and some other stuff, and hit everything right on the nose. He played all of the songs perfectly, and he also gave a great personal touch to the wedding. The best thing was, that when the dance floor got going, he kept people there all night, with his club-like mixing of the songs. Needless to say, we would HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM TO EVERYONE!!!Sent on 09/09/2014
Kelli Burns Entertainment's reply:Thank you Steve for your kind words about DJ Harold Purdy. Harold always shoots for a perfect wedding and it sure sounds like he comes very close.

I have worked with Kelli Burns Entertainment on numerous occasions in the past, and they are the absolute BEST in the city of Pittsburgh and beyond. On this particular occasion, we booked Harold Purdy for our wedding and his service was second to none. He worked with my fiancé to make the evening incredibly special for everyone who attended. His attention to detail, interaction with the guests, organization of our evening, and the quality of his equipment were phenomenal. He exceeded our expectations, and this is why I would never use another entertainment service other than KBE in the future. Amazing!!!Sent on 08/12/2014
Kelli Burns Entertainment's reply:It's official! We are your DJs for life. Glad to hear DJ Harold Purdy did a fabulous job. He's one of the best in the city. We all wish you the best here at KBE. We are honored to be a part of your events.

Working with Jonny was a pleasure! He's available whenever you need him. He made our wedding awesome, telling a short story of our engagement, played great music and kept the party going all night. He was very professional, refusing to eat dinner as he said he was there to work and will eat after the wedding was over. I would highly recommend Jonny for any occasion, you won't be disappointed.Sent on 08/25/2014
Kelli Burns Entertainment's reply:Thank you for letting us know how everything went. Jonny is a great story teller and host. Glad to hear all went as planned and even more.
Rainy · Married on 08/02/2014
Kelli did an amazing job at our wedding. We never left the dance floor! She puts a lot of time and effort into each of her weddings and was very easy to communicate with. Her price was higher than we had planned on paying, but we felt that she was worth the extra cost.Sent on 08/10/2014
Kelli Burns Entertainment's reply:Hi Rainy! Glad to hear you had a wonderful wedding reception with your family and friends. It was great to celebrate with you all! I wish you and Kyle all the best and GO BUCS!

We absolutely loved Kelli and Jonny! They definitely always went above and beyond our expectations. Jonny was so friendly, kind, and took the time out of his busy schedule to meet with us a few times. He even did a heartfelt introduction for my grandfather, and he is still talking about it!Sent on 11/25/2014

After all the planning for your wedding, you need to make sure you have chosen the right person to run your event. We cannot give a higher endorsement for Kelli Burns Entertainment and DJ Jonny Hartwell. As a business owner, Kelli Burns, pays attention to every detail; she recognizes the importance of planning and timing. Her recommendation of Jonny Hartwell was a perfect match for our wedding. His professionalism and genuine care was one of the major reasons our guests said it was one of the best weddings ever.Sent on 08/26/2014
Jonny knew how to keep the party going. He took the time to research the guests during dinner to learn how they would respond to his song selections. Jonny's is a true talent.
Your big day is in outstanding hands with Kelli Burns Entertainment. Thanks again Jonny and Kelli.
Kelli Burns Entertainment's reply:Thank you Nicole for letting us know how we did. I know Jonny said that we wishes he could work with people like you every weekend. It was a pleasure being a part of this celebration.
Kathy · Married on 07/26/2014
As the bride and groom we heard over and over during the wedding ceremony/reception, at the after party the same night, at our Sunday brunch the next day, and still now.... "your DJ was awesome!"Sent on 08/11/2014
Our DJ - DJ Jonny, was booked through Kelli Burns Entertainment. From our first encounter both Kelli and Jonny were approachable, helpful and friendly. Upon signing the contract for services for ceremony and reception we were given planning advice, help, and we could tell that they both truly cared. Jonny went above and beyond his "Services" outlined in the contract to make our day special and memorable. From texts and calls to "check-in" to custom mixes and songs - he truly helped to make our day perfect. Jonny told us when we first met; his goal was to be "our forever DJ"! He has met his goal. I would recommend Kelli Burns Entertainment with no reservations for anyone looking for a DJ.
Kelli Burns Entertainment's reply:Hi Kathy! Thank you for your kind words about DJ Jonny Hartwell. They don't get any better than Jon. He has been a popular radio personality in the Pittsburgh area and I can see why. We both really enjoyed meeting you and felt a connection right away! Jon and I wish you the best. Kelli

Harold,Sent on 08/06/2014
How can I begin to thank you for your outstanding performance on Saturday, July 12, 2014 at the Duquesne Power Center for Dave and Katie’s wedding? The playlist was exceptional. Numerous family and friends told us, called us the day after, and sent us messages saying they cannot remember dancing like that in years! All they could say was "Your DJ was unbelievable!!"
When we first spoke two years ago, we had discussed that the music for the evening was one of our top priorities. It was our desire to keep the dance floor full all night long. Dave and Katie wanted the opportunity to dance with each and every one of their guests. We wanted all our family and friends, regardless of their age, to dance until the last song was played. I can honestly say, you did not disappoint us on any of those goals. By meeting with us and mapping out the perfect time frame for the flow of events, you orchestrated the perfect wedding reception. We felt so confident entrusting our wedding reception into your hands. I have to admit, I did not know how you were going to get everyone back on the dance floor after the Bridal/Money Dance, but in the blink of an eye the entire venue was on its feet surrounding our beautiful couple in the center of the dance floor. It was truly an amazing event. From start to finish, we had the “time of our lives”!
If I could describe our wedding day in one word, it would be “FUN”. The venue was outstanding and truly magical for dancing the night away. I believe our guests felt amazing and told us they hadn't had this much fun in a long time. But most of all, I think we achieved that each and every guest felt loved. From the bottom of my heart, my deepest thanks and gratitude for all the time and effort you invested in taking all of our special requests and developing the perfect wedding reception for Dave and Katie.
Kelli Burns Entertainment's reply:Hi Linda, So happy Katie and Dave were please with Harold's performance. He even said that this wedding was maybe one of the best he ever did. I think he has a few great one's in him to go...Your gratitude is much appreciated Linda. thanks again, Kelli Burns

Unfortunately there aren't enough characters allowed in this text box to fully describe in detail just how amazing Kelli Burns DJ Services is, so I'll give you the "Top 5 Reasons" list, as follows: They are ->Sent on 07/22/2014
1) The Best in Pittsburgh & Budget Friendly
2) Well-Known & Custom Tailor their Services to Your Event (and are LGBT Friendly!)
3) Charitable - they give you bonus gifts just for choosing to make them a part of your special day!
4) Wedding, Reception, & Crisis Aversion Experts!
5) The Best Choice You Could Ever Make For Your Event
You only have 1 wedding / special event and this is the THE most important choice you will make. If you think you can just go with a friend or someone less established / less expensive, you are making a huge mistake. They are with you every step of the way once you book them and go beyond being your DJ - they truly become like your family (in the best way!). I strongly suggest booking with Kelli Burns DJ Services or at least including them in your list of potential vendors - you will not be disappointed by them - and I can guarantee you that they would win out in a comparison contest between other Pittsburgh DJ's (at least they did for us compared to 6 others!).
Kelli Burns Entertainment's reply:Hi Heather and Jac! We BOTH loved working with you. How great was it that you got married on THE WEEK the Marriage Equality Act was approved!?! Jonny could not say enough great things about you two, only wish I was there to engage in the fun. We both wish you the best and hope to see you again. Many happy days ahead. Love Kelli

There are no words to describe just how outstanding DJ Kelli Burns is. We could not have been happier having DJ Kelli Burns be our DJ for our wedding. Kelli was recommended to us by several reputable sources, including our reception site. From the first moment we were in contact with Kelli, she was welcoming, professional, friendly, and courteous. Kelli has an impeccable detailed outline for her services so that it is ensured that all aspects of the planning are covered smoothly. She was very accommodating to our schedule and all of the meetings with her were informative and efficient. Kelli truly submerges herself with her talent and expertise to ensure that your wedding is a priority and a first rate event and it was evident from the beginning how much she truly cared about our wedding. Her website was easy to use and extremely helpful with the planning. Kelli was flawless at our wedding and everyone could not stop talking about how amazing and fun she was and how she got everyone involved. The dance floor was never empty and everyone had an amazing time. Kelli has a superb collection of music for anybody and we had a wonderful variety of music for our reception from the cocktail hour to the last dance. Kelli absolutely loves what she does and that is what makes her amazing to work with. I highly recommend DJ Kelli Burns for a wedding or any event.Sent on 08/17/2014
Kelli Burns Entertainment's reply:It was a pleasure working with you. You made my job easy by being prepared and having great ideas. I loved planning your bridal party's Grand Entrance and I'll never forget the last song of the night!
Amy · Married on 04/12/2014
Kelli was beyond amazing! She made sure we got everything we wanted and more. We wanted to have a non traditional reception and she provided tons of suggestions. We changed up the flower toss, sang love songs instead of clinking glasses, recorded messages to our parents during our dances with them, and much more. Kelli is an amazing talent and she will make sure your event is a memorable one for you and your guests. She was so easy to work with from beginning to end. All of our guests kept complementing us about our fabulous DJ!!! Please use Kelli Burns Entertainment! You won't regret it!!!!!Sent on 05/02/2014
Kelli Burns Entertainment's reply:Hi Amy, I loved preparing your wedding this year. You added a few new touches that I have not incorporated and that was fun for me too. The message you recorded and played over the song was so touching to me. I can't wait to see the video. I was truly honored to be a part of your wedding day. Love Kelli

We are so glad we hired Kelli Burns DJ for our wedding reception. We weren't very knowledgeable about how we would structure everything, but Kelli help us every step of the way!

From our first meeting with Kelli, it was obvious that she took the responsibility of making our wedding reception one that would be memorable, unique and fun. And, it was! Kelli's professionalism and expertise allowed us to explore options for the evening's activities. Our guests were not just passive observers but active participants. Her bridal party introductions were detailed and personal and were a surprise to each member. They enjoyed hearing about their personal connection with us as much as our guests did! Kelli naturally and professionally injected her awesome sense of humor throughout her announcements which made all of us smile and laugh. Despite being extremely late arriving at our reception, Kelli kept her cool while rearranging the schedule and kept us updated on the next segment of our celebration. She gave us resources to help us create a personal touch to our wedding reception. The most impressive quality about Kelli is that she's genuine. She allowed us to speak freely during our communication and always kept in mind any specific preferences we had. Her online event planning tool is state-of-the-art and she would ever so gently remind us when we needed to add or update information. She was 100% invested in her service and took her role seriously not only as our D.J. but as our M.C., director, coordinator and advisor to ensure our satisfaction. I would recommend Kelli Burns to anyone seeking a high-quality professional D.J.!Sent on 10/16/2013

Kelli Burns was the DJ at our recent wedding, and we couldn’t have been happier with her services! From the initial meeting, I was very impressed with her level of professionalism and attention-to-detail. She provided us with a flash drive full of music ideas and a very helpful reception planning guide. She helped us plan personalized introductions for every member of our wedding party, so all of our guests knew a little something about everyone and why we had selected them to be in our wedding party. We told Kelli that we wanted everyone to get up and dance at some point during the reception, and she worked with us to make it happen. My husband and I wanted a lot of classic rock played at our reception, understanding that it isn’t the easiest music to dance to, but Kelli came up with creative ways to make it happen. As we got closer to the wedding date, Kelli met with us at the reception venue and helped us envision how the room would be laid out and how the reception would flow, which helped put me at ease. She provided us with a very detailed script, which helped synchronize all of our other vendors. At the last minute, my reception venue changed the room we were using, but Kelli easily adapted to the last-minute change. Kelli was amazing the night of the reception. She constantly checked in with us to make sure everything was to our liking (i.e. the volume of the music, the timing of events, etc.). The reception flowed seamlessly and people we never expected to get up and dance were up and dancing! Kelli brought many personalized touches to our reception (raffling off the centerpieces, recognizing couples that had traveled a long distance, naming our first baby contest, etc). We received many, many compliments on our DJ, and many people commented that they had never had so much fun at a wedding reception! Kelli’s services are well worth the price. We are so happy we selected her!!Sent on 07/05/2013

Dave was an AMAZING DJ! We wanted great music and a fun party without all of the traditional 'emcee' talking. We got an amazing party! People are still asking us about his great remixes!
