Highly recommend TKO!!! We have been to many weddings and school functions that featured TKO for music needs, and we knew immediately that we would hire them for our wedding. TKO is a professional entertainment business that took all of the elements we provided/incorporated into our reception and carried them out as we specified! TKO played the music we requested and did not play the music we did not want. We really felt as though it was OUR night because TKO helped shape it to be so.Sent on 11/12/2007

We were not disappointed. TKO lived up to all of the awesome reviews we had read. Ted was great to work with during the planning phase. Jim and Scott were great the night of the wedding. They kept people on the dance floor without being obnoxious about it.Sent on 10/01/2010
We had requested a lot of a certain musician to be played during the cocktail and dinner hour and that's exactly what they did. Then later in the evening we had a special surprise planned for my grandparents, except as we were announcing it, my grandparents were no where to be found. Jim and Scott played it off like it was no big deal, quickly switched to some dance music to distract everyone and tactfully did the whole thing over a few songs later. I am very thankful that we hired TKO as our DJ service and would gladly recommend them to anyone.

These guys are awesome! I have been in touch with Ted since about 13 months before the wedding. From the start I felt very comfortable with him! He is very down to earth, friendly, organized and great with getting back to me about anything and everything! He was so patient with me and my fiancé (at the time) and our specific wants! He was willing to have a conversation to put me at ease about what to expect! This really helped me feel better! You could not ask for better DJs! And although they may seem a little pricey they are more than worth it! They are great at entertaining, are wonderful with setting the pace and tone of the reception, and the quality of the music they use is amazing! My brother and best friend used them for their weddings and a family friend used them for her son's bar mitzvah before me, and I was impressed each time! So happy with all they did for me and my husband and our families to make our special day perfect!Sent on 05/27/2012

Ted (the owner) and Ed were great! We had many compliments. Up lighting and ceremony was included in our package which isn't always the case even for TKO. They were worth every penny! They catered to our requests and made our guests get up and dance without having to force them on the dance floor. I highly recommend Ted and his crew at TKO.Sent on 08/08/2017

They were very accommodating and even made a complete personalized mix for the big day of all the songs we really wanted. They were thorough and cared about what you liked and what you did not like; I has to fill out detailed forms which we carefully reviewed together. They made me feel reassured about their quality of work and their professionalism (no cheesiness).Sent on 09/20/2013
The DJ we had at our reception was excellent. He was extremely nice and took charge when it was time to line the bridal party up to be announced. He remained professional the whole time and even came up to me throughout the night asking me how it was going and was there anything not played that I really wanted to hear. That stood out to me and I really appreciated their efforts and authenticity!

Great to work with, put up with my crazy singing Grandpa, and did not think I was crazy for wanting "No Requests". Stuck to the playlist, and I was not disappointed. There were two small snags, the first being when the DJ (not Ted) asked ME for the payment, when I made it clear that the Best Man would be taking care of it. Asking the bride for money is a huge no no in my opinion, and they should be well aware of that. Second, they messed up the timing of our first dance song, which we had taken lessons for, so it was timed to a tee. I told them at exactley what time to start the song, and for some reason it started in the middle of the first verse and almost ruined months worth of lessons. Luckily my husband was determined to pull it off, and we figured out the dance, so it was no big deal. All in all, I would recommend them again, I just wish I would have gotten Ted as my DJ.Sent on 07/16/2009

Overall, TKO was a god choice of DJ. They could have played better music at the beginning but overall a good choice..and affordable too!Sent on 02/06/2008
TKO Entertainment DJs (Cleveland / Akron)'s reply:Sorry you didn't like the music at the beginning of the night, we always try to please the older adults at the start and then play the newer music as the night goes on! Glad you enjoyed it. Thanks again, Ted

TKO was great. They have you set up a playlist before the wedding, with a list of DO NOT PLAYS!! This was very important to my husband and I, because we are very picky about our music. They were a lot of fun, and even stayed an extra hour for us to keep the party going!!Sent on 04/14/2008

Review by father of the BrideSent on 10/16/2014
TKO arrived approximately 1-1/2 hours prior to the reception. I informed the two DJ's that a party tray is provided for them and the other vendors and whenever they would like to eat before they get started, I will have the staff serve them.
I was told by TKO that "we don't eat party trays" I was also told that "we get served hot meals and eat when you eat"
My comment to TKO was "there is a party tray for you and the other vendors and you are welcome to eat whenever you want".
Shortly after our conversation, my two son's (groomsmen) came to me and said my daughter (the Bride) was very upset because TKO came on the limo bus and gave her crap about not getting a hot meal and she (the Bride) was in fear that TKO was angry and would ruin her wedding.
In an effort to calm my daughter’s fears, I ordered hot meals for TKO. I then informed TKO that they will get there hot meals and if they have any other complaints, concerns or request, they are to come to me or the father of the Groom.
This behavior was unprofessional, arrogant and rude.
When you calculate the cost to hire TKO, make sure you include them in your head count, the same way you count your guest.
