Jim and diverse sounds was incredible. Amazing experience from start to finish. Never once was I worried about the music and how things would go because he is that good. Would highly recommend anyone choosing diverse sounds. Also, the photo booth managed by Courtney and Brandon was superb and a huge fan favorite. All across the board professionalism is what you get with these guys. Thanks for everything! -Jake & Karinna

Diverse Sounds was amazing! We had Jim Batchelder do our wedding reception and he did a spectacular job. We had an 80s themed reception in which we requested mostly 80s music and he did the research and provided fantastic music. When I was picking services for our reception the DJ was the one that I cared about the most. And let me tell you, Jim was the perfect choice. He kept everything very well organized and kept everything flowing smoothly. The dance floor was nearly full the entire time and everyone had nothing but positive feedback! It was the best night of our lives and want to do it again! lol Thank you Jim!

We were very pleased with Diverse Sounds overall! Great price, and they were willing to work with our budget and even offer us extra services that we asked for. Everyone at our wedding loved how much energy they had, and the reception ran very smoothly. They were very accommodating on the day of the wedding. Our ceremony got rained out, meaning their schedule changed as we moved our ceremony into our reception venue!

Our only trouble was getting in contact with them beforehand to iron out details. We had trouble connecting to our actual DJ until three days before the wedding, which was a bit stressful. It all came together in the end, though, and we were very pleased with them!

Hi Melia,
I am so very happy you had a great time on your wedding day. It was nice going over the details the week before your wedding so everything was all set. We do like to keep an open line of communication, and I appreciate the review.

Jim from Diverse Sounds did such a fantastic job at our reception. We booked him after he provided the DJ service for a friend's wedding and were so impressed with his ability to keep things moving without taking over the entire event. He fit the style and feel of our reception perfectly and was extremely accommodating with every request.

Hi Brittany,
Thanks for the review, and I don't think I will be letting Tom get out that easy. It's hard to stop doing something you love.

Jim was amazing. Played everything we asked for and more! Kept everyone dancing all night and always answers the emails back and forth.

The price is well worth it!!

We hired diverse sounds to DJ our wedding in September. I met with the owner, who was a very nice guy. I was a little wary at first, because he seemed a little outdated in his taste, but proceeded anyway. We were assigned Tom as our DJ. We were able to meet with Tom, but he seemed reluctant to do so, saying that he doesn't normally meet with the client before.... I thought that was strange. When we met, we discussed our style and taste. It became very clear that Tom (although a very nice guy) was also very dated in the style of music he preferred to play. When we asked about the age of the songs he generally plays, he said he tries to stick to "8 months to a year old" so that everyone knows the song..... I thought this was very strange, given that people like to dance to classics and new songs they like. He also said he liked to play "techno jazz" during dinner. I had to REALLY stress to him that techno jazz was not an option for us, although he repeatedly insisted that he knew what he was doing, and to trust him. We did, but were sure to send a list of songs to dinner time.
During the reception, Tom (and his son) did a very nice job moving things along and making the announcements without being too frequent. When it came time to dance, however, his songs were very dated, and I felt like we were at a middle school dance.... myself and my guests had to ask him to play new songs more than a few times. Once he got the hint, however, he rolled with it and kept the dance floor packed.

Overall, I am pleased with their service, but not blown away. The price was good, and they did a decent job, but struggled a little in their taste.

We were so happy with our reception and a huge part of it was thanks to the guys at Diverse Sounds. They did a great job helping everything to run smoothly and covered everything that we wanted our reception to be. I can't even count the number of guests that told us how awesome the DJ's were and what great music they played. I'd recommend them to anyone!
