Sarah Birkett was our wedding DJ and she was fantastic! We loved working with her and highly recommend her to anyone looking for an event DJ. Sarah was so respectful, fun, professional and open to ideas. She also gave us suggestions when we didn't know what we wanted to do for different parts of the wedding reception. She's so easy-going and friendly, she made our event flow perfectly throughout the evening. We are so happy Sarah was our wedding DJ!

I cannot even begin to say how amazing our experience was with Sarah of Birkett Entertainment. Throughout the planning process Sarah was so attentive and helpful. We had a few surprises for the evening of the wedding that she helped facilitate. My wedding also fell on my BDay and Sarah secretly took the time to work with my husband to set him up to do a "happy birthday guitar solo". She went above and BEYOND the duties of a DJ. She made sure the schedule was prepared and dispersed to all the vendors. She even made sure that my husband and I had food and drinks while taking pictures after the ceremony. She even helped us edit our first dance song!

She is so kind and sweet and really took the time to listen to what we wanted. She played a perfect selection of music. Everyone danced the whole night. Many of our guests commented the next day on what a great time they had on the dance floor!

We would definitely recommend Sarah and Birkett Entertainment!

Stop reading and book Sarah Birkett now. Immediately. Do not hesitate!

I cannot say enough good things about Sarah. She is incredibly kind and warm, she knows her trade incredibly well, she worked very hard with my husband and I to provide the music we wanted (which was not traditional by any means), and she was on top of EVERYTHING. Honestly she was like having a second wedding coordinator on site. She let me know when we were moving from place to place, she made sure everyone stayed on schedule, she came up with little tricks to get guests involved, she played awesome music and the dance floor was never empty. She also was so thoughtful as to give me bug spray wipes when some mosquitoes were bothering me - she noticed I was swatting and came over. Just so nice. I just adore Sarah to pieces. Of all my wedding vendors she is seriously number one. She honestly does not charge enough for what she does, she is phenomenal. Amazing. Wonderful. Like I said, hurry and book her now before someone else gets your date and you will regret it!!!

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!!
