    Great experience with Mikey Beltran at SGM!

    Mikey was very professional and but also easygoing and helpful. Everyone at our event remarked about how much fun they had in large part due to the music that was playing. Mikey kept the flow of the evening smoothly and never skipped a beat.

    Amazing DJ/MC and Guitarist

    Ramsey our DJ and MC was great! He listened to what we wanted and made our reception amazing! Curt was our Guitarist who played during our ceremony and cocktail hour. He was also amazing and very talented! We would highly recommend :)

    Best party ever!

    Mikey Beats exceeded every expectation we had for our dj! We loved all the music and he really grasped what our vibe was. All of our guests commented on the amazing music, young and old- he was amazing at pleasing the whole crowd. We asked for everything from hip hop/edm remixes, to Fleetwood Mac, Madonna, fun 90s (*NSYNC, Britney) every song put a huge smile on our faces and made the night magical. He even emailed me a list of the entire play list, bc I wanted to always have it to dance to and remember our night. Can’t wait to use him again at another party!!

    Had our entire wedding dancing the whole night!

    Our DJ, Kerry Glass, was absolutely amazing! He did a perfect job of starting with traditional music and flowing into modern music by the end of the night. I've never seen so many people consistently on the dance floor.

    Incredible!

    BOOK! MIKE KLEEMAN!

    Our music and dance floor was everything we had imagined and more because of Mike and the SGM Events team! From the moment I met Mike, I could tell that he is the type of DJ every bride wishes for…one who LISTENS to what the bride and groom want, an EXPERT at his craft, and UNDERSTANDS that less talking (on the microphone) is better! Mike and the SGM Events team (Freddie & Alexis) are quick to respond to email and make you feel like you are the only wedding they are working on. Mike even provided us with several sample lists for before the wedding, during cocktail hour, and during dinner. He makes sure the music at your wedding if everything you’ve dreamed of which includes must have songs, hard no songs, and whether you want him to take requests from guests. He sent me a form to fill out with all the songs we wanted played during all the different sections of our wedding. He then created & sent us a Dropbox folder with every single song we picked to make sure he had the correct version. He created a detailed timeline with notes next to each section. He even scheduled a call a week before our wedding to go over the timeline of all the songs and to explain what he says throughout your wedding. He played portions of songs for me to make sure he had the correct section because we we’re not using the entire song for our entrance, first dance, and father & daughter dance. Talk about going ABOVE and BEYOND! He is truly the BEST DJ and emcee!! He even assisted our photographer, so we could get a group photo of everyone on the dance floor. (We also had a videographer and the footage from our group photo is one of my favorite parts from our wedding video. Mike made that group photo happen). Mike & SGM Events, thank you for making our happily ever after absolutely perfect!

    Dj mikey beats... Best dj for anyone!

    DJ Mikey Beats was excellent at gauging the crowd's pace, guiding everyone where they should be and was none-stop fun! My husband and I would absolutely recommend him to anyone who wants to bring life to your event whether it be a calm, classy dinner or hyped up party!

    From the start everything ran so smoothly and professionally. Bernard was a dream to work with from our first meeting to the end of our wedding. He made sure our music was exactly what we wanted from start to finish. I would absolutely recommend him.

    Best dj ever!

    Thank you so much for providing me with the perfect entertainment. My Guitarist for the Cocktail hour was amazing and my DJ was professional and played such a wonderful array of songs for everyone to enjoy. I loved that I was able to hire both artist & DJ from the same company making it easy for communication and payments. I would highly recommend SGM Events for your event or wedding.

    Easy & Fun DJ Experience

    We worked with DJ Ramsey after hearing his intro on the SGM website and meeting with him at the office. SGM makes it easy to get to know all the DJs and pick someone who fits your style. Ramsey really worked with us to work in American, Bosnian and Italian music in a fun creative way. Thanks SGM!

    Absolutely nailed it

    Working with Sleeping Giant was a smooth end-to-end process. Freddie was super responsive and appealed to our tastes and budget in our initial meetings. What I liked about Sleeping Giant was the number of options (different performers) and the ease to get a sense of their style.

    We ultimately went with DJ Mike Kleeman, who was great. Communicative with music choice, great with sensing the energy in the crowd and adjusting. He balanced different moods of California chill, swanky Art Deco, and building up the dance floor with great beats. Mike was great as a MC in a pinch.

    Could not have asked for a better experience.

    DJ Bernard is amazing!!!

    SGM events is awesome and you won't regret hiring them! Once we met with Bernard, we knew we wanted him to be the DJ for our wedding. He is talented, charismatic, and just wonderful to work with. He gave us amazing advice and made the venue pop with his uplights. He knows how to read a crowd and keep the party going. Everyone laughed about how sore they were the next day from dancing. The music was so good- no one ever took a break. Thank you Bernard! You're the best!

    Top notch DJ with Unforgettable Experience

    We had about 3 or 4 on our list to contact, but our wedding coordinator steered us to SGM Events as she had experience with them in the past. DJ Mike Kleeman from Sleeping Giant Music Events was probably one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. We were highly satisfied with our overall experience and the SGM team helped guide us through the whole process. From the beginning, DJ Mike Kleeman proved his experience with us as a wedding DJ and gave us sample music of his work, as well as playlists that he made available to us. We were pretty much vague as what we wanted, but he gave us options of what he can produce. He will ask about your likes and dislikes, songs you definitely want to play and songs that are a no-go, genres that you favor, and go through the list of songs from the ceremony through the last song! You’d think it would be easy, but making a playlist for your wedding is not as simple as you would think- especially coming from 2 individuals with semi-different tastes! Also, with all the songs on your want list, condensing that down to the dance part of the reception is very limited; however, he did it with a breeze. He also will do a walk through (if needed) to assess your venue for technical support so he can familiarize himself with the area- both ceremony and reception. Price is resonable and within means. We added some A/V rentals to our order which didn’t cost too much or break the bank. Altogether, we will definitely recommend SGM + DJ Mike Kleeman- best combo ever!

    Fun and Flawless!

    Mikey was awesome! I pretty much missed opportunities to take photos and talk to my guests because I was on the dance floor most of the wedding. LOL. He was on point with all of the details we had planned and an overall pleasure to work with. I found comfort knowing he would deliver and I would not have to worry about a thing and that's exactly what happened. Thank you!!

    Loved working with DJ Mike Kleenman

    We booked DJ Mike Kleenman from SGM Events through Abbey Catering and Event Company. He was really easy to work with and listened to all our requests. Both my husband and I are in the military and don't have a lot of time to meet all our vendors. Mike planned around our free time to talk on the phone about our music needs during the Cermony, Cocktail hour and Reecption. We felt very confident in booking him after our phone call after listening to his samples of his music on SGM's website and speaking with him. He walked us through how he selects the music and let us write a request list and do not play list. He then sent us samples each song he planned on playing from our list so we could refine it and made sure he had the right version of the our first dance, Father-Daughter dance and Mother-Son Dance. Everyone at the wedding raved about the music and Mike's awesome transitions between songs. We ended up adding the Dance lights and sounds woofer which that was recommended by Mike and really did keep everyone dancing all night long. We would highly recommend DJ Mike Kleenman to anyone!

    DJ Bernard is THE MAN! Our wedding would never had been such a great success without him.
    If you need an easy going, super talented MC/DJ that takes control of the flow of the event while simultaneously taking every request that came his way... look no further and just book Bernard.
    He played us the perfect mix of sing-a-long oldies, group dance songs, and complete bangers. People did not want to leave at the end of the night.
    We received so many compliments on our music choices, but we left about 90% of the songs up to Bernard's choice (including the walk-down the aisle songs) and he nailed it.
    105% recommend him & the SGM photobooth to all wedding planners!

    10 out of 10!

    We LOVED working with DJ Mike Kleeman from SGM Events. Before the wedding, he was excellent in providing us playlist samples and even helped edit the special mixed track we used for the Father/ Daughter dance. Day of, he set sound up with ease and went above and beyond and looped our Hora track right on the spot. He was a great emcee and kept the night moving all while playing the perfect soundtrack for our perfect day! I would recommend DJ Mike Kleeman to anyone looking for event DJing and emceeing. 10 out of 10!

    DJ Artform was amazing at our wedding! We were picky and chose every single song (in order) for our entire day but he was very understanding. When it came down to the last 20 minutes or so and we were running out of time, he came up to me and asked me to prioritize the remaining songs, which meant a lot to me because there were some ones on there I couldn't have lived without! Everything went by without a hitch and we couldn't be happier with our experience.

    We got married over Labor Day weekend and were so happy with Travis Banister (DJ Hevrock) and the SGM team! We were looking for a DJ that could balance a mix of 90s hip hop/R&B, old school soul music, and top 40s and Travis was able to execute seamlessly. He had such great energy and kept our guests entertained without being cheesy or over the top. He was personable and blended in so well that our guests thought that we knew him personally and that meant so much to us. Everyone had a great time and we couldn’t be happier with our decision. Thank you so much DJ Hevrock for rocking the house and thanks SGM for making everything so easy!!

    SGM is the best of Southern (and Northern!) California in the DJ/Entertainment Service. We were lucky enough to have Mikey Beats at our wedding in Lake Tahoe. He came all the way up from San Diego to DJ/MC our wedding and kept us and our guests dancing and entertained. He was prompt, had brand new equipment, played what we wanted to hear, read our guests needs, and ultimately was just a blast to work with. Don't think twice about hiring Mikey Beats and/or SGM for your next special event--Thank You!

    Mike Kleeman from sleeping giant music was amazing. He kept everybody at our wedding on the dance floor. He helped my 16-year-old with sound check and Mic set up so she could sing three songs during the reception which brought the house down!! Thanks Mike
    Best Day of our lives ❤️
