I have to try and be fair when reviewing SKM. They are an excellent DJ company and provide very good service and easy to work with tools for customizing your event. Sadly, I do have to say for all the hype that was passed to me over this vendor, they're the one vendor my husband and I were somewhat disappointed in.
Don't get me wrong. They played the music we wanted them to play, their light set-up is amazing (you actually get a lighting technician if you sign up for some of their packages), their sound system high quality... The DJ wasn't even half bad. There were just a number of things that bugged us. For example, there was alot of dead time, which confused me for all the talk they'd done about how good they are at getting a crowd up. We had a tough crowd, alot of adults, but the dead time just added to the difficulties. They also didn't seem to communicate well enough with us and with our planner. For example, they didn't check with anyone to find out that my husband's grandmother wasn't there... They wandered over to interview the grandfather and assumed his aunt was the grandmother. Very embarassing. Also, we had hired Irish dancers as a tribute to my family's heritage... They announced it as a tribute to my husbands heritage.... which baffles me because I have an Irish last name and he has a Hispanic one. His parents, his grandparents, and guests were obviously hispanic, mine were not. I don't know how they missed that but I haven't heard the end of it from his relatives since.
Don't get me wrong. SKM did alot of things right that other companies do wrong. They work heavily with you to customize the event and get any special request songs you need. They did communicate with us about songs they couldn't get and come up with solutions. They also aren't cheesy. You aren't dealing with some ham with a microphone. I'm suspecting perhaps we just weren't matched up with the best DJ (I won't spill his name, I don't want the guy to get any flack because he did try).
My best advice? Check them out, but be picky about what you want in a DJ. Specify that you want frequent communication and no dead time. They're not a bad company, but they weren't all they were hyped up to be either.
We had originally signed up with SKM with Meghan and was told that she was leaving her position when there were no responses to our e-mails to her. Thanks to Jessica and Tony, we had an overall great experience with SKM. Jessica took over our contract and did everything she can to take care of anything we needed. Tony did a great job throughout our event - he was especially great helping me finalize our song list! The website to select the songs we wanted was not very user friendly - we couldn't find most of the songs we were looking for and ended up using i tunes. Also, I would have been more specific with our song requests - some song requested for dancing were played during dinner.
We had Justin as our emcee, and he was excellent. We would recommend him to anyone. This specific DJ company gives you an emcee and a DJ, and this is one big reason we chose this company. It is definitely worth the extra money it costs to have the extra DJ (in comparison with other companies' pricing).
The DJs were great and the photo favors were a hit. Having 2 DJs was great because it kept the night running smoothly. I liked the website and being able to update that before meeting with the emcee. Overall, it was a great experience. I would recommend them again.
Before attending the Phoenix Bridal Show in January, we were in desperate need of a DJ for our wedding. SKM Entertainment ended up headlining the fashion show and really had a chance to shine. After the show was over, we made sure to speak to a staff member about booking an appointment. We had a chance to meet with Megan who then got us set up with our DJ Juan. We were able to select all of our music through an online jukebox which was very helpful. Whatever you couldn't find you were able to add thru the site or by contacting your DJ. Juan was so well organized when we had our meeting. He was able to set up our ceremony music outdoors as well as the reception inside. We were so thoroughly impressed with how Juan was so precise on keeping the evening flowing. If anyone is need of an awesome DJ, please contact SKM Entertainment. Your reception will be absolutely funfilled!
Justin was an AMAZING MC, we were very, very happy and many of our guests commented on how much fun they had. I couldn't agree more! I was very happy with everything in the end, however there were a few bumps in the road. For whatever reason, our MC was changed on us (even though we paid to pick our own) and we were never notified - I just happened to notice it on an updated contract. When we asked about it, we were told their "notes" said we had approved the change, when in fact that never happened. SKM never offered us anything for the mistake or lack of professionalism. They ended up lowering our package and giving us Justin (thank you SO much Justin, you were great), however they acted as if they were doing us a favor, when it was their fault to begin with.
Don't get me wrong, I was very pleased with them in the end, but they made the planning process a little bit more stressful than necessary.
I have so many people still telling me it was the best and most fun wedding they have ever been too. The music was fun for guests of all ages. The uplighting really completed the room and I loved the bubbles. The big hit of the evening was the photobooth favors. Thank you SKM!!
Justin is our favorite - he knows what he is doing and really helps to coordinate the event and make sure it goes smoothly!
SKM is simply the best. So many guests commented that our wedding was the most fun they'd ever been to and the credit really goes to SKM. They kept the guests entertained, made sure that everyone got involved and were completely professional from beginning to end. Our MC, Tony even managed to get people on the dance floor who would NEVER have danced that night. I would highly recommend their services to any couple looking for a fun night!
SKM was one of the best decisions I made regarding my wedding. Everyone had so much fun thanks to their ability to keep everyone on the dance floor. They did an awsome job with the lighting as well. Everything they did for us was perfect!!
I had a horrible time with the staff "behind the scenes" that booked our wedding. They were changing costs and they hadn't written down some of the things we wanted. The actual DJs were amazing! We had 3 and they were fantastic. They really got everyone up and dancing and they were good at keeping the right music flowing. Everyone told me how much fun they had after the night was over and the next few days afterwards. The DJ does make a huge difference!!!
Everyone loved the DJ! SKM kept everyone having a GREAT time!
They were very energetic and kept the party going!
I would recommend them!
Very professional and totally worth the price we paid!
SKM did an excellant job. OUr DJ was Juan and he was great! Everything ran smoothly and he kept us going. I can really say that all of our guests had a great time! The sound quality was great and the lighting was fantastic. Thanks!
They are well organized and fun people! It's so nice that they have 2 people there because it made things go smoothly. I wasn't there for most of the reception but from what I've heard and pictures I have seen, everyone was dancing all night long
Regina and Miles were wonderful to work with. I would highly recommend them to anyone who wants their wedding to be the time of their life. I have been to a lot of weddings and a great DJ really makes or breaks the party. Miles and his team are very talented and the night was constantly moving. Everyone at our wedding said it was one of the best weddings they had ever been to and I really believe a big part of that was the entertainment. Everyone at our wedding was on the dance floor and having fun...people who I had never seem dance were "getting down". They really know how to appeal to everyone at the wedding. They are true professionals and very reasonable for the product and quality you receive.
Miles was fantastic!!! He truly created a night filled with great music, dancing and laughs!
best dj you could possibly pick
Great company, little expensive but well worth it. Great DJ's make your guests happy and your reception longer and a lot more enjoyable!
We appreciated all the extra hard work that SKM did to ensure an outstanding evening dancing under the stars at the Copperwynd Resort. From start to finish, Miles Gilbert, a magical MC, created a beautiful atmosphere with the right lighting and ideal timing of music. He followed an exact but not rushed timeline to assure that nothing was missed at the reception.
We highly recommend Miles and SKM entertainment to anyone looking for just the right DJ and entertainment for their special day...added note...book early if you want Miles!
Overall our DJs were awesome!!!! They kept all of our guests up and dancing and having a great time. We paid extra to have all the extra lights and stuff but they ended up casuing fuses at out reception place to blow so we didn't really get to use the lights that we paid about an extra $650 for. It would have been nice for SKM to call my reception place to ensure that the lights would work rather than just letting us pay for something that we didn't get the benefit of. Also there were a few times that I had to remind the DJ of what guests I wanted him to recognize for anniversaries and stuff. But overall I would totally hire then for another party.
They were great! They let us pick songs that we DID NOT want to hear on our special day (Electric Slide ect.) and they stuck to it!!! They really got the crowd going. We did have a mix-up with our first dance but it made for a funny memory.
