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!!

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.

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!

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!
