    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!

    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!!

    Kerry Glass DJ

    DJ Kerry Glass and SGM were amazing to work with! Very responsive and efficient, making the wedding planning process and our actually wedding day stress free and effortless.

    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

    When we first talked with Mikey Beats, we knew he had to be the DJ for our wedding. He is super easy to talk to and had us laughing the entire time. He also took the time to walk us through the ceremony set-up all the way through the best time for the first dance, and bouquet & garter toss. SGM was also very easy to work with & their process was simple to follow. They were available to answer all of our questions and Mikey is an expert on our venue (Garty Pavillon in San Diego). We like a wide variety of music & changed genres throughout the night. Mikey nailed each one & made the transitions seamlessly. He was open to all our random song requests, and even pumped for the challenge. He nailed my walk down the aisle switching from AC/DC to the Piano Guys! And when my dad busted into dance moves after his speech, Mikey acted as though it was planned and wasn’t thrown off at all. We had a complete blast on the dance floor! Other than a break for sunset photos, I don’t think we stopped dancing. Thank you Mikey!

    Mikey Beats was beyond the best DJ we could have asked for for our wedding! I gave him a list of “must plays” and I heard them all!

    "The music is incredible" "Everyone was dancing" "The energy was on fire" These were just some of the comments from our wedding guest. I knew when I hired Dj Damon I was in good hands. He was smart, professional, a wealth of knowledge on music and knew the flow of a wedding. He has been doing it for over 20+ years and even our wedding coordinator was like "He's a really good Dj."

    My family is latino and music is very important for us and my parents were raving about how he mixed salsa with 90's Dance music (Our request), and as one guest said "The wedding was so romantic" as he didn't shy away from romantic songs. Our guest were really dancing and connecting. At one point on the dance floor I was overwhelmed with tears of Joy and maybe a bit of tequila. Everyone we love dancing, having fun and celebrating our union. I will always forever be grateful for him because he wasn't just a DJ playing music he was a conductor setting a mood.

    If you want the best Dj, service, quality, personality and a DJ that actually listens to your request and doesn't just play what they think works I would hire him! My husband and I were smiling so much the next day because we created the best party every and Dj Damon help create that dream. Thank you!

    DJ Hevrock is Amazing! He is super nice and his work schedule is flexible to work with our schedule. He knows exactaly what kind of music we like and he helped us in every detail of choosing music. We had some last minute music change just a couple minutes before the event and he handled that so well! Highly recommended sleeping giant music!
