Welcome! I'm DJ James and I own RTB Entertainment. I've been DJing for almost a dozen years. I do a lot of weddings, but I love a good 80's night, anniversary, or birthday party! While my Wedding prices are a little higher due to the planning and Hosting (MC) that goes into it, I am always looking for fun events and great business relationships. I am currently trying to add a couple regular paying gigs to help off-set the wedding season, which would mean better deals for you! This is why my prices vary so much. I have awesome package deals on my site for weddings, including up-lighting, karaoke, a monogram light, and a top notch photo booth! As a mobile DJ I have great equipment, lights, and speakers... also pictured on the site.

While I'm still collecting reviews here, you can find a ton on Wedding Wire and The Knot. (Links on my website).

If you're a bride, please check out the DJ+PB (photo booth) deal! Visit the website for tons of helpful wedding info. When you're ready, let me buy you a cup of coffee and answer all your questions.

A little more about how I work:

I started DJing when I realized how difficult it was to find a good one and I believed I could succeed where they often fail. Namely, integrity or professionalism! Ever discover that club that has 80's night once of month? Or go to that one wedding you couldn't believe did it so well after so many bad ones? I actually hired a DJ for my own wedding who did a decent show, but man was he a jerk! A DJ should relieve stress, not add to it! He was top shelf price, but shouldn't that come with a top shelf personality? I began to wonder, what if I could provide the good music, fancy light show AND be easy to work with... maybe people would notice! They have! And it's why I'm one of the fastest growing DJ's in the area!

Check out the testimonial page on my site and see things like, "Best DJ in 10 years!" and "A Dream to Work With!" People want someone nice, funny, fun, professional, good with details and planning, but also good at DJing. Peace of mind is paramount! Therefore, I specialize in ease as well as fun. Professionalism is so important...especially at a wedding. Your guests will remember your DJ. Make sure they add to the wonderful memory of this unforgettable day!

I want to quickly share about my photo booth. I have seen countless photo booth rentals averaging close to a grand a pop, if not more. And that's just the quality ones. You have to watch out for bad ones. Admittedly, years ago when I started out, I built an iPad booth that only used the iPad camera! Horrible right? Beware of similar booths! I finally built a sleek black wooden box (pictured on site), but bought all the industry standard electronics to go inside it! It has an 18mpxl DSLR camera, a DNP printer, and a Surface Pro 3 tablet. I realized I could build this with that cool FAST high quality printing, and when adding a DJ package, charge much less than others! Trust me! This is a great deal!

I can't wait to hear from you and answer all your questions.

I was supremely pleased with the accesibility and professionalism of this DJ. When I needed him he was there, and so accomodating. We had a corporate event that required certain paperwork, and he worked SO hard to get exactly what I needed to submit in a timely fashion. I will definitely bring this guy back to our next event and after that too! Hopefully this time we can buy the photo booth package to amp up the festivities. He has so much to offer and is truly a dream to work with. He pleased the crowd and played everything they wanted while maintaining my requests. Stellar performance- couldn't be happier.
