Kelly was great! She handled several unusual requests for intros and music, and communication was easy. She maintained a solid and fun dance floor with a diverse crowd -- mostly the older crowd earlier on and the younger crowd later on. She adjusted quickly when asked, and she had a great personality.

John is terrific! He's not only very talented, but also very professional, courteous, responds promptly to questions, and was accommodating to anything we needed. We hired John to perform for our club's 85th anniversary Gala (200+ people) and were delighted with his live singing performance for the cocktail hour and as DJ for the dinner dance. John has a knack for reading his audience and selecting music that appeals to a wide age range. He certainly had our group up on the dance floor the whole night having a ball. We would definitely have him back for future events.

John did an awesome job at my wedding!!! I knew as soon as I saw his available song list on gig masters that he would be the perfect dj. One of my friends was about to request a song from John... and sure enough he starts playing that exact song. He has such an immense knowledge of music and it shows in his dj skills. I highly recommend John to anyone who needs a dj for any kind of event and any type of music. He made my wedding day absolutely perfect, I didn't stop dancing for a single second. Thank you John!!!
