"I am very proud of the 100% client satisfaction rating that my company has been able to maintain, and of the number of referrals directed to us by our former clients. In this business, I think that speaks volumes."

Here's the snapshot version of what we're about:

SERVICE: We believe that quality service begins with communication. We encourage your input, offer our expertise along the way, and work together on details as we approach your event.

PERFORMANCE: Over 90% of our clients come to us by referral. Word of mouth has always been our strongest form of advertising, and we are honored to have a reputation for excellent performance.

GUARANTEE: We want to be held to the highest standards, and want our clients to know that they can be confident with our DJ service. With this in mind, we back all of our events with a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee.

Just in case you'd like a little personal history... I stumbled into the DJ profession during my senior year at the University of St. Thomas, in St. Paul. After graduation, I worked for a great DJ company for a few years, and then decided to start my own in 1996. Since then, we have been able to remain a small company - running a maximum of three DJ units, and concentrating on quality over quantity - and I have been able to make a living as the owner of this small company. It has been a great ride! Two of my former DJs have started their own companies, and another now lives in Haiti, where he and his wife have been helping the Haitian community since 2006. I'm proud of all of them!

Matt was AMAZING! He kept the dance floor hopping all night - and accommodated every age group from 8 to 80! So much fun! And he was very flexible and willing to keep up with a few special requests we had last minute. We have heard from many of our guests that he was the best DJ they've ever seen... and we agree! I would recommend Matt to anyone looking for a fun night of music and dancing!

Matt DJ'ed our wedding reception. He was so awesome, he kept everyone on the dance floor the whole night. We had numerous people say that he is the best DJ they have ever heard and he helped make the wedding the best night of our lives. I would recommend Matt for any occasion, he is very professional and knows how to deliver. Well worth it!!!!

I cannot recommend Matt Kotefka highly enough! Not only is he professional, talented, attentive, inquisitive, and fun....he's kind, sincere and hardworking. I could tell from our first meeting that he wanted to get a good grasp on what I was going for with my event and he completely delivered! He read my crowd well and we danced the night away. He had great input about things I hadn't considered and advised me on them so that my event would have the vibe I was hoping for. Hire Matt - you will not be disappointed.
