John did a superb job, very flexible in meeting our needs and was wonderful in taking requests! He was friendly, polite and very professional. I would not hesitate to use him again and would recommend him to anyone who wanted a talented dj.

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 a wonderful job of making this wedding very stress-free in terms of music, he set up a very great outline for us to fill out before the event to make sure we had everything covered.
