Our Happy Clients


"Hi Tim, I wanted to personally thank you for being part of our wedding. Everyone had a great time dancing especially Brent and I! My apologies that we got started a little later than planned so many things going on that ended up taking longer than planned. All in all it was a great night. Many guests said it was one of the most fun weddings they have been to. We will definitely keep you in mind for future events and refer you to other friends and family."

"I'm sitting in the back of the room right now during the Family Video event, and I've got to say you and Jimmy are great DJs! You've got a great feel for the crowd, you mix well, and you keep the party going. Send me some contact info, and I'll add you to our short-list of recommended DJs, if you're willing to travel to Indy for other shows. "

"Hi Tim, Our wedding was wonderful and the reception was exceptional! Please tell Ron thank you for everything! He was great, very easy going and did a wonderful job keeping people on the dance floor all night! Thank you!"

"Meghan "

"Hi Ron and Tim! We had such an amazing time! Thank you for everything, I truly felt like the party was in good hands. Seriously, our group of all different personalities and musical tastes gave Ron rave reviews!!! You didn't miss a beat in terms of requests, intros and even accommodated what may have been the world's most musically involved toast! Several of our friends commented on how impressed they were and we have passed your info to them as well. Everything was a success-- You even managed to get some self-proclaimed non-dancers on the floor. What a night!"

"Brian and Megan "


"Hi Tim! I just wanted to say thank you for all your hard work and open communication! I also want to thank you for the terrific job Ron did at our Wedding--he had the crowd moving from the first song through the last dance and he played an incredible mix of music! Nonstop compliments were flowing about how good he was and we just wanted to take a moment to let you know! We'll recommend you anytime!"
