Chris is awesome! He is full of energy which makes for an awesome reception! He included the different stuff we wanted. He is great at reading a room and was able to play stuff that got people dancing. The whole reception was commenting on how much fun he was and the fun that they had.

When my daughter became engaged, I didn’t know what to expect from or how to select a DJ. I requested pricing from everyone on our venue list, and received some rather strange phone calls from male DJs who wanted to hang out with / get to know my daughter and her fiancé, but never received the pricing I had requested. Birkett Entertainment was the only company who immediately responded to my email and sent a price list. When I spoke with Sarah for the first time, she said her goal was to make my daughter’s wedding perfect in every way. As MOB, I found it very refreshing to speak with a sincere and classy sounding woman instead of a weird guy, and knew she was the one for us! Upon meeting Sarah, we were all impressed with her broad knowledge, professionalism, and approachability. Sarah did a totally awesome job!! She made the wedding perfect in every way, just as she originally promised!!

After having 2, yes I said 2, DJ's cancel on us the week before the wedding. I was feeling very scared that we wouldn't have any music at our wedding. Well, then we found Tony! Him and I (the bride) spent a good amount of time on the phone about what songs I wanted and what kind of playlist we wanted. He also had to keep reassuring he would be there. On the day of the wedding he was there without fail! He got every song for the ceremony correct and he was just as nice as could be! The first thing I did after the ceremony was thank him for showing up! He was a life saver! Everyone of my guests said that there was not one song he played that they didn't like. Could not ask for better! Thank you so much Tony! I will refer anyone to him!

Kyle was our DJ and he was absolutely amazing. He played all the right songs and had people dancing all night long. Our DJ was one of my main worries when planning the wedding and i was blown away. He is extremely professional and has a great personality. He made selecting our music easy and helped with creating our wedding day time line as well.

Where do I even begin?! Chris Birkett was so much fun to work with. He was so personable and his energy is truly contagious. He made each appointment so easy and effortless for us which was refreshing since planning a wedding can be SO stressful. We had so much fun planning our reception with Chris. He sat us down and walked us through everything start to finish. We knew exactly what to expect and he made it seem so easy! He even gave us a demo of his light shows and we jammed out to music choices until we found the perfect song for each event at our wedding. Chris was so professional and a blast to work with. He had so many fun surprises at our reception that made our wedding memorable to say the least. No one left the reception early at our wedding and all of our guests were still there for our grand exit! Chris had everyone out on the dance floor waiting to see what would happen next, even our family that “never dances” had a blast! If you want an amazing party with fun guy to take all the stress away from your big day, Chris is the man for sure. :) 

We were booked as part of a package with Bella Rose Estate with Birkett Entertainment. We enjoyed our meetings with Kyle, however the day of the wedding did not go exactly as planned. My Dad had emailed in a song to be played for our father/daughter dance, and it was not played. I had picked a backup song- so at least it was covered, but my Dad was upset that his surprise song was not played. We discussed playing Top 40 and rock music for the reception, however, most of the music played was 80s- and not the top hits. We had a hard time engaging the crowd. They also wanted to charge us a ridiculous add on price for lighting and video, which was not included in our package. The actual DJ part went great though! The games were a hit and the master of ceremonies parts went well!

I wish I would have seen a negative review before booking Chris.
-He played 'Be Our Guest' from beauty and the beast as dinner was served. Neither of us are Disney fanatics, there were no children at our wedding, and my husband and I were so embarrassed. People kept asking us why we played that.
-We specifically requested that no club music be played at our wedding. The first song he played was 'Move Like Jagger' with a Techno beat. He was irritated when I asked him to stick to the list.
-He put on an Elvis costume. Thank god I caught him before anyone saw. I politely told him that my wedding guests would not take kindly to that and I asked him to take it off. He got really upset and said 'I have a 133 wedding wire reviewed that say its not weird.' I was really upset that I got yelled at by my DJ in an Elvis costume...on my wedding day.
-Everyone needs to have a good story from their wedding day and Chris was ours.
-If you want a DJ who ignores your requests, plays Disney music, makes your guests laugh uncomfortably, and gets butt hurt when you ask him to stick to the previously agreed upon music then Chris is your guy.

We booked our wedding through the Regency Garden, so Chris became our entertainment for the night! Oh that DJ Chris is a crazy one! He's so full of life and really gets everyone out on the dance floor. He's a Disney fan just like we are, and added the perfect Disney touches to make our night magical without being cheesy.Don't be afraid to get the lasers! I couldn't imagine anyone else as our DJ. Thank you Chris!

P.S. His amazing wife also works at the Regency Garden and is so helpful and nice!!

Sarah was our DJ for our wedding. She was absolutely amazing! She not only was the DJ, she helped with all the stresses of being a bride. When it came to bussel my dress, twice, she helped out. A few of the bussels broke, so she was prepared with large safety pins to bussel it back up. I got some of the sauce form dinner on my dress and once again she was to help clean it off with club soda she also had.

Kyle was by far one of the best vendors we worked with for our wedding! He was always on time, and organized. He had great suggestions for us when we were indecisive about the flow of our event. His music selection matched our tastes perfectly, and he was great about getting everyone out on the dance floor! People danced for hours, which was exactly what we had hoped for. Unfortunately, we had a lot of last minutes changes that had to be made due to weather and other circumstances. But, Kyle took it all in stride, was extremely accommodating to our needs, and put myself and now husband at complete easy. We highly recommend Kyle! He was fantastic :)

We met his wife, Sarah, as well and she was equally impressive and helpful! We will for sure recommend them to anyone looking for entertainment in the future and had so many comments from guests saying how great the DJ was :). Thanks, Chris!!

Chris is a phenomenal DJ. To the point that people commented on how good he was, several people came up to us to say our DJ was amazing, who does that? He kept our dance floor going all night, including the older guests. I think what really made him unique was that he was obviously having a great time too, his excitement was infectious. Definitely book him if you have the chance.

My husband and I were married a few months back so this is a little belated! We truly feel though that Chris made our wedding such a success! He really knows how to throw a party and had several surprises we didn't even know were going to happen. I had several people tell us he was the most entertaining DJ they had ever seen! Chris made us feel very comfortable and went through all the songs to make sure we had what WE wanted. He made the craziness and stress of the wedding disappear with this aspect and always knew what was going on during the ceremony and reception. He does things I know for a fact no other DJ's do since I have been to several weddings. I can't express enough how professional and wonderful Chris was to work with. Please book him for your wedding!! Thanks so much again Chris for making our day so special!

Sarah is the best DJ ever!!! She was great with every meeting, and she was incredible on our wedding day. She played great music, kept the party going, and didn't play music on our do-not-play list not matter what other guests said (thank god). Sarah kept all of our family members organized for the family photos, and we ended up getting them done early thanks to her! She kept bring my us something to drink, and checking on us all throughout the night. Anytime we needed something, we went right to Sarah. She also helped bustle my dress and fix it later in the night! Sarah was more than just a great DJ, she was everything! Because of her, our wedding kept on its timeline and was our dream come true!!!

Chris was absolutely amazing! He takes care of everything and I mean everything. Need to find someone? Tell Chris. It's getting too hot inside? Chris will make it comfortable. You need five minutes to use the restroom because your dress is so difficult to pee in? Chris will patiently wait and keep the guests moving.

He truly went above and beyond to make my special day one that I will never forget. It was so stress free and he really knows how to read a crowd and make everyone have an incredible time. The production value is out of this world! I would really suggest paying extra for the laser package. Totally worth it!! If your reception is at Regency, the lasers somehow make the place more beautiful - I didn't know that was possible.

Thank you so much for everything ( even though thanks is not enough).

She really thinks your wedding through to figure out what will flow the best during the reception. My dad and I did a special funny dance during the dad-daughter dance and she helped coordinate it to make it perfect. She really knows her music and is very watchful of your guests to ensure everyone is having a great time. We loved her and would totally recommend her!

Sarah was booked with our Regency Garden venue package. She and her husband are amazing and easy to work with. Sarah had an amazing light and fog show in addition to playing just the right songs every minute of the night. She ran the entire reception and never missed anything. My parents loved her as well as all of our guests. She got everyone involved in dancing and we just love her. She is sweet, friendly, has a beautiful voice, and my mother said she was just plain marvelous. If you are looking for an affordable DJ with amazing sound equipment, please pick Sarah and Chris. She definitely made our wedding the "best day ever". We love them.

We hired Chris Birkett for our DJ for our Oct wedding and were very pleased with his service. He was very attentive and always made time for us before the wedding to answer any questions we had. The company is very professional and makes sure you have everything you ever wanted for your special day. When you first meet him, he asks everyone to meet him at his amazing house in Scottsdale and you will be blown away at the show he puts on for you and the music and lighting effects. I have to tell you without Chris at the wedding I wouldnt have known what to do from one minute to the next. He officiated ever moment and always made sure me and my hubby were well taken care off. He was very entertaining and we received many compliments from others at the wedding about how funny and entertaining he was. Everyone was on the dance floor even my father who does not dance at all. I would highly recommend him to any future bride and groom. Thank you Chris for making our day special!!

Chris Birkett was everything we could have hoped for and more!

We were lucky enough to book him through Regency Garden as part of the all inclusive package. Chris made it extremely easy to have a wonderful wedding and really ran the whole show! He made it easy to setup a meeting at his house at our convenience (He also has a really awesome Indiana Jones pool haha). Chris spares no expense to create a feeling and energy for his clients so that they can truly picture what it will be like to be in the excitement of the reception. We highly recommend the light effects that he offers!

His enthusiasm for his work truly shows and any bride who is lucky enough to book him will have a perfect reception. We were able to just enjoy the night and have fun with out guests without having to worry about coordinating a time line. Chris also makes a point of entertaining guests and going above and beyond what a traditional DJ would do. He truly does provide a unique service to his clients what cannot be matched.

Chris Birkett will exceed any bride and grooms expectations!

We used Sara Birkett for our DJ and she was wonderful! She not only DJ'd at our wedding but acted as a Coordinator, helping out wherever and whenever was needed. She was right on point with our music all night. She always made sure we stayed hydrated and got anything we needed (we literally never had to ask for a drink or go get one). She truly listened to our vision on how we wanted our night to be and what kind of music we wanted throughout the night. And trust me that is hard with the our families... just think My Big Fat Greek Wedding and that's what we had! We had to mix country, hip hop, rap, arabic, rock, acoustic... I mean you name it! She honestly did a fantastic job getting everyone on the dance floor and having them stay out there. Highly recommend Sara!

Sarah was wonderful! I am so glad we found her! She not only had a wonderful selection of music set from cocktail hour through the final dance, but she single-handedly handled the sound for our Rabbi, a special guest musician, and for our family blessings from our family members. She also helped coordinate moving our guests from ceremony, to cocktail hour, to reception (for dinner) then out for dancing & mingling - we had an amazing venue, but certainly could have been a challenge for an inexperienced DJ - Sarah knew the Boojum Tree well and was ready and willing to jump when I had a last minute requests.
Thank you Sarah!! We hope to see you again soon!

We had Sarah Birkett as our DJ and ABSOLUTELY loved her! She was so sweet and thoughtful plus did an amazing job at our reception! She was so easy to talk to and listened to what we liked/disliked-- we really wanted to avoid the "cheesy DJ" stereotype and Sarah was the perfect fit! Beyond the great party and music, she really was more than a "DJ"-- there were so many little things that she did besides DJ-ing that really made a difference. When we arrived at the reception venue, she arranged to have drinks and appetizers waiting for us at the table! Her music selection was great and everyone had a great time! She also acted as our "conductor" and made sure that the evening progressed appropriately- she was awesome at communicating with our photographers to ensure that they were all in sync. She was so sweet throughout the party and would check in with me to see if I needed anything- I could tell that she really cared and was willing to go above the necessary to ensure we had a great time. When it was time for us to leave, she offered to take photos so that our family could all participate in the send off (our professional photographers had left by this time). Overall, I want future brides to know that not only was the party great and the music awesome, Sarah really made our night special-- I honestly cannot say enough great things about her, we would recommend her without question to anyone who asks!

My sister utilized Birkett Entertainment for her wedding, and they did an AMAZING job, so when it came time to choose our DJ it was a no brainer who we would go with.

We worked with Scott Carter and we are still getting compliments on how great he was. He's super professional, approachable (We gave him a playlist and he stuck to it and didnt want any games outside of the traditional gater toss, anniversary dance and bouquest toss, which you can't say about everyone!), and an all around nice guy. He made it very clear from day one that it's about the Bride and Groom, not him. He communicated with us through the whole ceremony about the agenda. We really cannot say enough great things about him. We'd reccomend him to anyone and everyone.

Denise was amazing to deal with. Easy to get a hold of and responded timely. Birkett is also very fairly priced too. They are truly a class act.

A.M.A.Z.I.N.G! Chris was the best part of our wedding (besides the whole getting married part of course!) hands down; he made the wedding! He really took the time during the consultation to get to know us and helped us find songs that fit both our personalities. We went into the meeting only knowing the dad & daughter dance and Chris managed to find us absolutely perfect songs for everything else, even a rather unexpected song for our first dance : ) The day of the wedding his energy and enthusiasm really came through and delivered the most amazing wedding DJ performance I've ever experienced, and per the comments from our guests, the best performance they'd ever seen. I can't begin to count how many people came up and complimented us on Chris. If I got a dollar for every time I heard, "your DJ is amazing" or "that's the best wedding DJ I've seen in a long time/ever" I'd have the honeymoon paid for!! He had 3/4 of our guests out dancing...even my mother who is extremely shy in large crowds was dancing in the middle of our big circle at one point! So many people commented about how impressed they were with how he was able to get people out onto the dance floor!! He really does a great job reading the crowds and is also super interactive! During the dinner he even came over and made sure we were doing ok, offered to get us a drink from the bar so we didn't have to get up, offered to have them bring us extra food, and went over the timeline again so we knew what to expect for the rest of the evening. If you can book him DO IT!! You will not be disappointed in the least and my guess is that your guests will be giving you compliment after compliment about him the whole night!!

I don't know how to write a review that explains how much we loved Sarah. She was far and above what we were wanting out of a DJ. She easily handled organization of the wedding, and didn't stress us out at all. She made things work on our time...WHO DOES THAT?! She is extremely personable, a ton of fun, and knows good music. We got everybody on the dance floor, and not a single person on both our sides of the family dances. We still have no idea how this happened! She is so cool, she even got up on the dance floor and was teaching people one of the dances. Can't recommend her enough.

Birkett Entertainment is awesome!! Sarah is beyond amazing! HIRE HER without a doubt!!!! So worth it! She made our day so special and memorable and made sure we enjoyed every last minute of wedding and reception. She was so helpful leading up to the wedding, the wedding day and night. Sarah spent time with us figuring out who we are, and what exactly we wanted. She did everything we wanted to the T, and then some. Sarah also helped us make our timeline, and it was perfect, everything flowed flawlessly. She also helped wipe down chairs before the ceremony because it had rained a little. Her and her husband Chris made an awesome mission impossible sound clip for the garter toss that was so fun. She was extremely organized, and made sure nothing was in question and everything was perfect, and just as we requested. I can go on and on, Sarah is truly a amazing, genuine, caring and experienced DJ. She is absolutely worth it to help ease the many stresses throughout our wedding and reception. I highly recommend her to anyone bar none...

Chris Birkett is an amazing DJ!! He is very passionate about what he does and it shows. He made our special day sooo much fun!! He did not just stand back and play music!! Chris was very involved with everything that was going on during our reception, and everything was AMAZING!! Neither one of us could stop laughing all night. EVERYONE was dancing!! We were really worried that our family was going to just sit back and we would have an empty dance floor. That was not anything we had to worry about when it was all said and done!!! When it came to planning the reception, Chris was on it from day one!! He called us very early on to introduce himself, and that does alot to put you at ease. Then when it came down to it, he was very helpful and had great insight!! Chris is very good at what he does! Seriously, do not stress if you are working with Brikett Entertainment!

Chris was such an amazing, professional, and fun DJ for my wedding! He really knows how to get the crowd going and makes the fun last until the very end. Chris offered unique, creative ideas for the song choices for the special moments (first dance, cake cutting, etc.) of the night, and made our wedding stand out even more with that creativity. He went above and beyond in helping me plan a Sparky (ASU Mascot) surprise for my husband and even video recorded it from his DJ table during the ceremony, which was such a nice surprise for us! Overall, I would highly recommend Chris for any event!

Almost everyone at our wedding commented on how awesome he was and a few even got his info to have him at their wedding. He really knows how to "work" the crowd and get everyone involved, even Grandma! He listened to everything we wanted and made it perfect. Thank you for the best party of our lives!

I cannot express how epic this DJ is! He is almost NEVER chillin behind his booth is is making sure the guests are having funa dnt he bride and groom are taken care of. He is WAY more then a DJ he is a true entertainer. I was told by multiple guests that we had the funnest wedding in years and we know that our DJ Chris is why! He finds entertaining ways to make the boring traditional events of a wedding really fun! We couldn't have asked for a better DJ and haven't seen a better one at another wedding!

I highly reccomend Birkett Entertainment. Our DJ was Chris Birkett and he was amazing! He made the process easy for us. We met with him a few weeks prior to the wedding and we told him specific songs we had picked out for the first dance etc. but as far as the other music he basically went through genres and asked how much of each we wanted played. He also put on a performance to show us some options for our grand entrance which was so cool. We ended up spending the extra to purchase the laser package which I never though I'd do until he gave the performance in his living room. He was hilarious and I laughed during our whole first meeting so I knew he was born to entertain. He dressed up in costumes and put on performances (with our permission of course) for our wedding and had everyone cracking up. So many people at the reception asked me how I had found him. I have shown people who didn't come to the wedding pictures of our reception and they all commented on how it looked like everyone was having a blast. The dance floor was full throughout the entire reception which shocked me since we had an older crowd at our wedding. I wouldn't go with anyone else for my fuiture DJ needs.

AMAZING work by Birkett Entertainment. Chris Birkett is a genius when it comes to entertainment and fun. Throughout the night, everyone was out on the dance floor having a great time and dancing the night away. Chris understood what made people want to dance and how to keep the crowd entertained. He was not only our DJ, but he became one of our guests. Everyone loved his spirit and could not stop talking about how much fun they were having. He not only controlled the music, he made it an experience and people are still talking about it today. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Birkett Entertainment to anyone looking for more than just a DJ.

His energy and organization kept the night fun and running smoothly and on time. He did exactly what he said he would: followed our requests and applied them to our crowd once he had a feel for the room.

Chris with Birkett Entertainment, was the most incredible, fun DJ I have ever witnessed... I would absolutely hire him again for any occasion. He was so personal, professional and so much fun at the wedding.

Chris went above and beyond to make our day so special. He followed our requests but defintely added his own touch to get our party started :) Even our guests who were older or not dancy people couldn't resist the dance floor. Chris was so much fun at the wedding, our family and friends continue to talk about how "Elvis" was at the wedding (as Chris had many roles, not just DJ), or how the DJ was so fun and great. Chris also offers a laser package, which we did, it was amazing and we have some awesome pictures.

For any brides looking, please check Birkett out, you will absolutely NOT be dissapointed and it is worth every sngle penny...

We truly could never thank you enough Chris for everything you did to make our day a dream day come true.

We had Sarah from Birkett Entertainment as our DJ. Overall, we were very happy with her services, and it was right within our budget. There were a few snafus with overall flow, and a few mistakes in the introduction of the wedding party, but these were pretty minor in the whole scheme of things. Really did a good job incorporating our tastes into the whole theme of the night.

CHRIS BIRKETT is truly.. truly.. the best DJ in Arizona! I experienced Chris DJ at two other weddings before hiring for my own- and he was amazing at each one. NO ONE sits at a Chris Birkett wedding- everyone has a great time. At the end of both weddings I went to and my own- I heard people saying, "that's the best wedding I've ever been to- best DJ." And the price is completely reasonable for the quality and value that you get. You'll have a great night at a Chris wedding!

Chris Birkett is fabulous! He has the personality and spunk to get anyone on the dance floor. I think my grandparents were the wildest dancers at the party! He was able to read the crowd perfectly so he played the right mix of music (styles and years). Over 75% of my guests were on the dance floor and my favorite pictures capture the enjoyment on every single person's face. Plus, he saved my sister from losing it completely during her maid of honor speech. He was professional but fun from the very beginning and the type of guy you like as soon as you meet him. My husband and I enjoyed picking out our music and Chris still pleasantly surprised us on the day. If you want to have a good time during your reception, I would not recommend anyone else but Birkett Entertainment.

He also throws in a few surprises and really listens to what you like. He knew we loved Disney and couldn't afford the Disney wedding so he surprised us with the last song of the night being the theme from Fantasmic!! It really blew us away!

A great recommendation from our venue, Birkett Entertainment and DJ Sarah Birkett were a pleasure to work with. Sarah was super flexible with our demands, coordinating with the cocktail party band, and helping us add a last minute special serenade from our friend to the night. The music during the ceremony was perfect, she made sure we were well feed and hydrated during photos, and was an amazing key component to keeping the order of the party in tact. While my husband had many demands for our music list (which I condoned), I do wish we would have emphasized more openness to guest requests as there was surely and ebb and flow during the dancing that I would have preferred stay at flow :) Another thing I would have like to see play out differently was our last song - we were supposed to walk out to it but it played suddenly at the end of the night...we had a plan to walk out through the crowd with bubbles and the song, so direct notice to my husband or I would have been nice. Nonetheless, Sarah was great to work with and their prices were competitive. We'd surely recommend her and Birkett Entertainment for other events.

What can I say about how great Chris is that hasn't already been said? He is such a nice guy and truly loves what he does. Our reception was the absolute party that we wanted and he definitely mixed it up for all ages. He even made a special run to the corner store to pick me up some pepto when I wasn't feeling well. If that isn't going above and beyond to make the bride happy, I don't know what is :-)

My husband and I chose to use Birkett Entertainment for our wedding based off of many enthusiastic recommendations. We are so happy we followed these recommendations. We worked with Sarah Birkett and were very pleased. I personally had no idea what I wanted, and my husband only had a small idea, so we were really grateful for guidance and by the end felt extremely happy with our DJ experience. Sarah helped us pick the perfect music for every aspect of our wedding and reception. She is a pleasure to work with, full of ideas, and really inspiring. We would absolutely recommend her.

Sarah did a great job communicating with us before the wedding to really get a good understanding of our personalities and how we wanted the wedding to go. She directed our guests throughout the evening in a very professional and helpful way. I remember thinking "I am so glad this song is on...I didn't even ask for this one!" several times throughout the night. Many of our guests commented to us that the music was a perfect combination of our personalities. Without question, I would use Sarah for our wedding if we could do it again.

Ok, let me start of with saying that I am only slightly biased towards Birkett. Chris (owner) has been a friend of my sister for YEARS. Now that that's out of the way, here we go.

I booked my wedding with Kyle. He met us at a Starbucks on my side of town for our initial meeting and seemed to really understand we were music nerds so we had some specific requests. When we met for our final meeting he was without a doubt awesome because we hadn't made some decisions. He never pressured us into picking something just because it was common or expected. He understood that we aren't a traditional couple and a lot of normal things wouldn't do. Kyle did us a great favor by suggesting "the Shoe Game" which is a Newlyweds style trivia game. It was a great break in the dancing and provided tons of laughs.

Kyle was amazing. He kept the energy up on the dance floor. Not to mention he kept the whole reception running smoothly as our MC for the evening. I was blown away at how attentive he was and how smoothly and close to our timeline he kept everything despite me being off in la-la-land half the time he talked to me.

Just as a heads up for other brides - make sure you have the right date when you book (you know, like most sane brides probably do anyway, unlike myself =/). Your deposit is non-refundable.

ANYWAY - bottom line - Kyle from Birkett was terrific and I couldn't have been happier with the results!

We had our wedding and reception at Regency Garden in Mesa and Birkett Entertainment was the preferred vendor. So glad we went with them!! Within a week or two of booking the venue, Jon called and introduced himself and told me exactly when to contact him to go over details and left me his info in case of questions or concerns. We set up our final meeting a few weeks before the wedding to go over the music and it was quick and to the point. He has great suggestions for everything, went over the timeline and even was able to add in some family traditions last minute for us. I had to leave town for a family emergency the day before the appointment with him so he was able to put me on speaker phone so I could be a part of it all which was great.

During the reception, Jon kept the party going. He played a great mix of music which is what I asked. My grandma even told me how much she enjoyed his DJing! He got everyone dancing, had some fun surprises and kept it going up until the end.

Couldn't have asked for anything more!!!

If you want your DJ to create a classy feel for your wedding reception, Sarah from Birkett Entertainment is the perfect choice. After meeting with multiple, cheesy DJ’s, we felt defeated. Eventually we found Sarah, and we were sold immediately. The great thing about Sarah is that she will do whatever you ask of her. She will allow you to create the entire playlist, or she will do it for you. In addition, she will help you select songs for special dances, and I think she has just about every song recorded in her library. We decided to allow Sarah to make most of the decisions. We told her what songs we wanted for our special dances, what genres we liked, and what genres we didn’t like. She did most of the work, and our reception was perfect. She is excellent at creating a mood, and she kept the dance floor busy. At one point I even noticed her kindly asking some guests to come in from outside so they wouldn’t miss the cake cutting. She created a seamless flow for our wedding reception, and our guests were constantly entertained. She is very charming and many of our guests commented on how much they liked her. In addition, she worked very well with our caterer and photographer. She has a ton of experience in the wedding industry, so she knows what she is doing. I would highly recommend Sarah Birkett to DJ any wedding because I could not have been more pleased with what she did for us at our wedding reception.

Chris was amazing. The sit-down meeting with him before the wedding were by far the most informative and most comfortable I had out of all the different vendors (both other dj's or other). He took our ideas and implemented them along with his own suggestions that fell right in line with our vision. He was very professional and kept everyone entertained. He even insisted that we ate our food before he would move on with the reception rather than pushing the pace on us. He came highly recommended to us and we have passed that recommendation along after our experience.

The success of our incredible wedding on June 10th 2011 at Regency Garden was definitely a combination of several amazing people working together to create a perfect event...that being said, it's hard to imagine it happening without Chris Birkett and his spot-on choreography of entertainment and music. He really listened to us at our initial consultation and provided terrific recommendations. At the wedding, he set the tone for each portion of the event, from the understated background music during dinner to the rockin' hot fun time of the reception. He engaged the guests and left them wanting more. Us too. In a word, he was a blast. We would recommend him highly to anyone who wants thoughtfully specialized entertainment at their event.

Chris Birkett did a great job DJing our wedding. When we first met to go over music, it was so easy and relaxed. We had a few requests of what kind of music we wanted at the reception and what we didn't. On the wedding day, he did exactly as we asked. There was no surprised on music. He even taught the crowd a few dances. It was a blast. He did surprise us with a little question and answer game with a Ken and Barbie doll...and that was fun. He knew what kind of questions to ask for the crowd. It was a fabulous time and he did a great job. Way to go Birkett Entertainment. Thank you

When you book Chris Birkett, you are not just getting a dj, you are getting a true performer! Our reception was without a doubt the MOST interactive and fun party I have ever been to. He got everyone out on the dance floor and even incorporated some fun surprises that my husband and I didn't even know about. (Blues brothers performance by Chris and the groomsmen was the hit of the night!) The night flew by and everything was kept on track without any dragging on spots.
Chris is so genuine, it's so apparent that he loves what he does. He made us comfortable from the first sit down planning meeting where we got a tour of his backyard (which is totally awesome but besides the point) and talked about Ghost Hunters and other interests so it felt more like a friend who was going to dj our wedding, not a faceless vendor who communicates only through email. Best part for me was I wanted the I Love Lucy theme song for the entrance music of my husband and I and Chris found it for me!
We booked Chris through the vendor package at Regency Garden and it was the absolute best decision because truly, there is not a better dj out there!
Oh, and my mom is still wondering how Chris did so many costume changes without anyone knowing... I say it's Birkett magic! lol. Thank you so much Chris, it was an amazing night and you are amazing at what you do!

Sarah was fantastic. We're not just saying that because she did her job and made the Wedding special or enjoyable. Those things are common and in my opinion don't deserve a 5 start rating. Sarah truly wanted to make our day special for us and enjoyable for our guests. She provided such a great service and went above and beyond. She even took one of our guests to the ER due to a Peanut Allergy, without being asked! How many DJs can you say would do that for you on your special day? That wasn't all because while one outstanding deed deserves to be noticed, it can also be said she completely honored our music selection wishes, handled our guests and keep things moving along the timeline, she also helped to keep us sane by offering solutions and not more questions, something that is very helpful when everyone keeps asking your questions.

We had a very nontraditional wedding reception. We had it the day after we got married at my sisters house and it was more of a party then a reception. When Kyle came to meet my husband and I he had no idea what he was getting himself into.. He was so flexible in planning the event and then the night of, because many things got changed from the way we had planned. His ability to roll with the night made it so easy for me and my husband to relax. He was wonderful. The only thing he could have improved on was turning the music down when I asked, because it was at a house and we knew the neighbors work schedules I wanted to be respectful of that and turn it down just a touch. Other then that he was awesome I have already recommended him for a friends wedding in the winter! Thank you Kyle. Mr. & Mrs. Kerzie

Chris Birkett is probably the best DJ in Arizona, maybe in the entire southwest. He is constant energy and has the crowd involved all night! He took our wedding from really good to Unbelievable!

First, he's already a great manager of the night - he keeps things flowing and was always letting us what was going on, what was coming up next. With about 20 minutes until our first dance was "scheduled" he came up and let us know that if we wanted to go mingle with the guests now would be the time.

But what really makes him great is that he goes all out to get everyone involved in dancing and having fun. And we mean everyone, even if they normally wouldn't be out on the dance floor. That night, they were. He did skits with the bridal party, played games with bachelors and even dressed up. I've never seen a DJ with more energy. He was so good that two of the engaged couples at our wedding asked him for contact info on the spot because they wanted him at their wedding. One of them live in Texas and are thinking of flying him in for their wedding. He's that good!

If you book Chris Birkett, you will not be disappointed and it will probably be the best wedding your guests have ever been too. You'll be having a blast all night! He really takes your wedding to the next level!

Stop looking for a DJ now - you've found him! I cannot compliment Chris enough. He was a bit of a splurge for our 'on a tight budget' wedding, but without a doubt, one of the best and most important investments we made for big day. I know he works with dozens of couples every year, but he makes you feel like your wedding is of the utmost importance and takes the time to craft your unique reception (and ceremony if you use him for that too, which we did). It's incredible. We received SO many compliments about Chris after the wedding. He went above and beyond in so many ways- he helped set up a Skype viewing via laptop for our good friend that is overseas and couldn't make it to the wedding. He was walking around with the laptop, making him dance, etc. He even connected him to the sound system so he could make a speech, all the way from the UAE. I don't think any other DJ would go that far outside their realm of work. He kept my husband and I on task, making sure we didn't get behind schedule so we could enjoy maximum party time. Most people told me that as a bride, I would be worn out by 10pm. Well, we booked Chris until 11pm, and I could have danced another hour because we were having so much fun (and same with our guests). He is an expert at crafting the reception for the utmost enjoyment for you and your guests, which as a bride, is a huge relief since it's one less thing for me to do. I completely trusted him, and I'm so glad I did. Not too many slow songs, but broke up the 'dancing' songs well so people didn't get too sweaty or tired. Also - it's TOTALLY worth getting his laser light package. It creates such a fun atmosphere in the room and on the dance floor. We also opted for Chris to do his 'performances' (hilarious, fun, and got EVERYONE out on the dance floor!), but if he's completely flexible and will accommodate whatever style reception you want. In my dream world, I would have gotten married in Disneyland because we are huge Disney freaks. Chris knows Disney better than anyone I've ever met, and he made my dream fairytale wedding come true. So if you love Disney, you absolutely have to use him at your wedding. Actually, if you love getting compliments like 'this is the best wedding I've ever been to', you absolutely have to use him at your wedding. Honestly, he is a true expert in his field, and I'm telling all my friends that attended our wedding that they should hire him because otherwise, they'll be disappointed! We love you Chris!

We found her only a week and a half before our wedding and she took away all of my worries aout the music and timing of the wedding. She helped me pick songs and really got to know what we liked and what we didnt want to hear on our day. the day of our wedding she was a life saver, and even brought us a drink during our pictures to make sure we stayed hydrated. she kept the party going and even got people who do not dance out on the dance floor. We got so many compliments on her and my new sister in law is even going to use her in her upcoming wedding because she was so good. Turily an amazing company from the start.

WOW!!! WOW!!! WOW!!! Chris IS THE BEST EVER!!!! Chris did our Christmas Wedding in December 2010. He is the best I've ever seen and I have been to many weddings in my time.

He made our day PERFECT in every way. His detail to making sure everything is running the way we want, on time, in order, as requested, organized, and most of all Laugh out Loud fun, for all ages at the wedding. His coordinating skills are unbelievable and I could not have asked for anyone better...

Chris I thank you from the bottom of my heart and you made our day exactly the way we wanted it. I would refer you for any event someone needs entertainment for, you are truly the best and I'm so glad I found you.

Blessings to you and anyone reading this review should STOP right now and book Chris, you will not be disappointed.

Chris Birkett is the ultimate vendor. He runs a top line of the professional service and is interested in nothing more than delivering the most entertaining experience possible.

Chris made our wedding truly awesome. We had a great time at our wedding and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

His dedication and passion to being a true entertainer made our wedding extra special. We are very appreciative for all his efforts and were especially suprised with the costume changes! Yes, costume changes. Chris made it possible for Elvis to make a guest appearance. There is a whole story that goes with Elvis. Knowing that he went just extra little mile was very personal and it meant a great deal to me :)

Most important, FEEL COMFORT IN PUTTING YOUR TRUST IN HIM. The day of the wedding, I was stressed out but he assured me "I will take care of it." We got everything we expected and more.

Chris, thanks for being the best DJ ever. You are extremely talented and we plan to contact you in the future for another great party.

Chris Birkett is by far the BEST DJ EVER!!!!!!! Chris was so much fun people a month later are still talking about him!!! He somehow got every person off their feet and to the dance floor! It was truly an amazing thing to experience!

Meeting him the first time was a lot of fun! He is very personable and fun yet somehow still being very professional. I don't know how he does it but he is the kind of guy who can do it all!!!!

You would have to be out of your mind not to want Chris Brikett to DJ your wedding! He is NOT just someone who plays the music, he is a performer! Your guests will not want to leave because they are being so entertained! I highly recommend Chris Birkett for anyone who wants a fun DJ who will personalize your wedding to your needs!

Thank you Chris for everything! We can't wait to see you for halloween and Christmas!!! Best wishes!

We had DJ James. He was wonderful. We had a "destination" wedding in arizona so we didn't meet in person until the wedding night. We had a couple phone conversations and he also sent us some demo tracks via email. We also decided last minute to add a slide show and this was accommodated without any issues. He was respectful but fun and always making sure we were doing well. He coordinated and communicated with the other vendors and made sure that the time line was followed. He also listened to all our requests/concerns and took that all into account. He's also very familiar with the night club / bar scene in Scottsdale, which was great for our out-of-town guests looking to find good places to go during our wedding weekend. I can't say enough great things about him!! Birkett entertainment was also very responsive and we got prompt receipts and payment reminders. Very easy to deal with.

We actually almost went with another vendor but after all the nickle and dime-ing and the pressure tactic ("this special pricing is available only for 2 days", etc) and not being able to talk to the DJ who would actually be at our event AND being charged almost $500 more, we backed out of that DJ. (also found out that they refused to give back the deposit to a bride who lost her groom just before her wedding - google 3 on your side and DJ) I called celebrity DJ and spoke to Stephanie who was very helpful and recommended a few other DJs including Birkett. (Celebrity was not available on our wedding date)

I have come to realize the DJ makes the wedding. Chris had an unbelieveable understanding of weddings and how to get the patrons at the wedding involved and excited. The dance floor was full the entire night (Even my +70 year old grandparents couldn't resist to dance) Chris created memories for us that we will never forget and it couldn't have happened with anyone else. Bottom line if you like to have fun then it is just silly to go with anyone but birkett entertainment.

We used Birkett entertainment for our DJ at our wedding. We had Kyle as our DJ and he was awesome. He was very respectful, and always confirmed everything with us. He was easy to get a hold of and make changes with very easily. Overall, he was a fantastic DJ in that he had the crowd dancing all night, his timing with everything was great and he played any songs that guest requested, and stuck to my do not play list. My husband and I only had one complaint...we asked for radio clean versions of music to be played and we had to cut two songs off in a row because some of the lyrics were vulgar and raunchy...although at my own home I probably wouldn't care if that music was played but it was embarrassing for us because I know some of the guest had heard it. Also, we absolutely wanted to have the radio clean version for the song we did our grand entrance to and as I was standing looking at my guest the MF words came out on the song. However, on Kyle's behalf he immediately changed songs when we gave him the cut it signal..it was just a little frustrating since we had requested the clean versions to begin with.

Overall I was very happy with this company. Everyone raves about the music selections- although My husband and I were the ones who compiled the list. The DJ stuck to the list perfectly, only straying for a couple of songs that were requested or he thought the crowd would enjoy. Unfortunately, there may have been something wrong with the set up or the equipment or volume, because many guests have told me they could not understand what the DJ was saying, we could, but we were set up very near to him. We had 200 guests at our wedding, and the DJ announced the cake cutting, only me, my husband, a 4 year old and my dad saw the cake cutting. I wish the equipment would have been tested before hand- however he was very accomodating and did play the music as we requested and even in the order we requested. He did'nt play the right garter toss song, which was somehwat up0setting, but overall it was a good experience. The DJ we had was Robin.

Chris is literally everything I asked for of a DJ, and then some! My best friend referred him which I was skeptical at first since I have a traditional family, but once my fiance and I met him he had such an up beat personality it became very easy to see his passion in what he does. He was knowledgeable about a variety of venue/vendors, fairly priced, and offers great quality equipment which in my opinion is a MUST for sound quality. Also his previous experience helped with insight on running a smooth timeline, and even spent hours with us to help find our ceremony/reception music when we had no idea what we wanted. Then when things ran off schedule on our wedding day he already had a solution, brought it to our attention, and then confirmed it with the planner who loved him as well(easy as that!). Everyone is still telling us how great of time it was with the DJ, especially his hilarious surprises! He is a one of a kind, and 110% worth it! Thank you Chris!!

Chris Birkett is an entertainer down to his bones! I've never seen anything like it. The cermony was beautiful, professional...you'd never know what was about to hit you when you enter into the Reception room an hour later!! From the first meeting, we felt like we were his only clients by his attention to detail and constant communication. That continued throughout our wedding day. He constantly checked in on my husband and I to let us know what was about to happen, if we were ready for the next event, etc. He has this way of connecting with people that makes them want to take off their shoes that are hurting their feet, because they don't want to miss out on the fun on the dance floor!! I can't say enough good things about Chris, and I'd recommend him to EVERYONE, absolutely!!! The only question I have for him, is if he is willing to DJ out of state, because all of my family wants him for their next event!! :)

Chris was absolutely FANTASTIC! I wish I could hang out with him everyday because he has this energy that is amazing. His family is so lucky cause they get to be around his great personality everyday. If you need a DJ this is the guys to hire because family and friends will have the time of thier life.

Thank you Chris! We really appreciate everything you did to make our event a night we will never forget.

Chris assured us before our wedding he would read our guests and fit a musical experience to their feedback. He did not disappoint! He kept people on the dance floor all night long in a very classy and wasteful way. I would recommend to anyone!!

Chris totally knows his field, and turned our reception into the biggest and greatest party we've ever been to. I was extremely picky about the music and had given him a very specific playlist, which he was happy to follow. He made song suggestions for the entrance, etc, that worked perfectly. Toward the end of the night, some of my guests were clamoring for songs on my "do not play: list, and he refused them. I was really impressed by the way he stuck to my plan and I appreciated the effort he made. Of course, by that point in the wedding I did't care any more what music was played, so we decided to play all the cheesiest songs he had. It was awesome and I can't say enough good things about our DJ.

Rafe and I loved having Chris DJ our wedding! 10 years ago he was the DJ for my brother's wedding, about 9 years ago he was the DJ for one of my birthday parties, so when our wedding came around, I had to have Chris! He is so much fun and gets the guests going. After our wedding all of our friends and family kept telling us how much fun they had and how they hadn't had that much fun at a wedding ever! Thank you so much Chris! Can't wait to see you at an event again, whether it is another event we are hosting, or one of our friends weddings!! Thanks!

Chris was the DJ at our wedding this past weekend. He did an unbelievable job of getting people on the dance floor and entertaining those who were more comfortable watching from their seats. His costumes also added a great touch getting people more involved. His love for his job and weddings is evident and makes your day feel as special as if it were his own. Thanks for a memorable day!

We loved Chris! The DJ was something that really terrified me because I had been to so many weddings with DJ's that just killed the reception. All I can say about Chris is that he was amazing! He did a custom entrance for the wedding party and for us which people still talk about. In fact the best praise probably comes from the people at the wedding reception, our friends and family, and all I heard was "best DJ ever" from everyone! Chris had a unique ability to be able to keep everyone on the dance floor which amazed me with people from 20 to 80 years old at our wedding. Don't even get me started about the costume changes - I bet he did at least 6 or 8 during our reception. It was amazing! One moment he is singing Elvis as an Elvis impersonator and the next moment he is Sir-Mix-Alot doing "Baby Got Back". (later in the night, of course!)

Thanks again! You rock! We recommend you to all of our friends who are taking the plunge! You are a Super Star for sure!

I originally wanted a band at my wedding, but of course that is more costly, but I was not disappointed at all in Chris' services. He was great, everything was perfect!

Chris was absolutely the life of the party. We were married 1 week ago and people are still talking about how much fun they had at our wedding. If you're looking for someone interactive who will constantly reassess the atmosphere and adjust his entertainment accordingly, this is your guy. We walked away from our first meeting with him feeling as though we should pay him for the show! Awesome awesome awesome DJ! He also provided the uplights and handled setting them up, big relief.

Chris was the DJ at our wedding and it was great. The thing I loved was that he found ways to entertain both the people who wanted to dance and those who felt more comfortable in their seats. He obviously loves doing his job and his fire and enthusiasm rub off on the crowd. He can really read the crowd and knows how to pace the night really well. He has plenty of surprises up his sleeve which made the night very unique and exciting. My mom said the DJ was a huge factor in why the guests loved the reception. I would highly recommend Birkett entertainment. Also, ask about the Bliss light. We had it and it was super awesome. It made our entrance very memorable.

Oh My Gosh. I just got married a week ago and Jon Lehmberg with Birkett Entertainment was my DJ. He's so great! Very entertaining. He got everyone out on the dance floor. He did skits with the groomsmen and made my guest crack up. The conga line he started was so much fun. Everybody told me that my wedding was by far the most fun they've ever had at a wedding. I thank Jon Lehmberg with Birkett Entertainment for that. I'm not going to spoil the surprise he has in store for the bride and groom, so you gotta book him to find out.

We had the joy of having the owner Chris Birkett at or wedding reception. I really didn't know what to expect, but I was BLOWN AWAY!!! He had everyone out there dancing and laughing and really enjoying themselves. I am not much of a dancer (I was born with 2 left feet=)) But I could not leave the dance floor. I don't think there was 1 song I did not dance to. I had the most AMAZING wedding reception and I owe it all to Birkett Entertainment. I feel incredibly lucky to have had them and they are worth every single penny.. Highly recommended!

When we met with Chris, he was about to leave with his family for Disney Land, but he took time the day before to meet with my fiance and I to plan the details of our wedding and reception.

He is friendly, professional, and understands what it means to promise and deliver.

I am very thankful that I listened to the recommendations I recieved for Birkett Entertainment.

Thank you, Chris, for helping make our wedding day something we both will cherish forever!

Jon was unbelievable! He did a really cute Greese skit with 5 guys from the crowd and 1 girl. With the men, he had 3 of the Best Applauded Men do a game where they had to wear a basketball game around their hip and try and make a basket. He played music based on the crowd's response and feel. Jon is very atheltic and even did a little tumbling action to spice up the evening. We had a great time! Jon was part of a wedding package done by Regency Gardens in Mesa, AZ.

Chris made our wedding the most fun event, not only for us as the bride and groom, but, more importantly, for our guests. We cannot even begin to express how happy we were with his service, his performance and his attentivenes to what was and was not working for our reception. He is truly a professional who loves what he does and it shows! He made us feel like the reception was truly about making us happy and showing us and our guests a great time.

I don't even have words to describe how awesome Chris with Birkett entertainment made our wedding. If I could give him 10 stars I would. I have been been a groomsman in and attended many weddings and I can honestly say that Chris outperformed any other DJ by 100%. He is a true master of ceremonies and will have your guests partying all night!

Chris Birkett did our wedding 3 years ago on MLK Day at The Castle at Ashley Manor. His reputation definately proceeds him. He was so full of energy from start to finish. He was the perfect person to have around because he made sure each event flowed perfectly into the next (first dance, cake, flower toss, etc), continuously checked in to see if my husband and I needed anything, and made sure everyone from the oldest guest to the youngest was having a great time. And I mind you that is not an easy job when there was no alcohol to assist him (alcohol free wedding). Non stop dancing and the variety of music was great. If we had a request, he had just about everything! We also took his option of having a more interactive time with our guests. His props and everything were amazing and I had no clue what to expect from one moment to the next. To this day friends call me to ask who my dj was. He was the perfect bonus on my wedding day.

The DJ, Jason, was very professional and set up his equipment quickly. He did a good job introducing the bridal party and making sure everything we wanted happened. He did a good job having the parents' speak as well as the maid of honor and best man. he allowed us to choose all of the music and provided us with songs that we didn't have in our collection.
