With over 10 years of DJ experience, DJ Fernando Entertainment is the premier entertainment service provider in the Kansas City area. Although we book corporate events and special celebrations, DJing weddings is our specialty and what we are very good at. You can count on Fernando, or any members of his DJ team- DJ Travis or DJ Kate, to help customize your reception to your style, and ultimately, keep the party going all night long! Fernando has personally trained his DJ team to follow his path to a successful event. They provide the right atmosphere and emcee talents to ensure your vision is realized, and expectations are exceeded. Most of all, they provide the party atmosphere you are looking for, WITHOUT the cheesiness and tackiness that most couples have come to fear from wedding DJs.

DJ Fernando began DJing in clubs, fraternity parties, and sorority parties while attending Washburn University. A talented baseball player on scholarship, Fernando used his DJ talents to supplement his college income(and have a little fun). While the Royals never knocked on his door, Fernando has used his business degree, DJ skills, and genuinely friendly personality to launch DJ Fernando Entertainment.(And he still plays baseball!)

DJ Fernando and his team are booked by couples with various styles and different musical tastes, who are looking for a DJ that can provide a fun atmosphere, emcee skills for announcements, and skills to keep a dance floor packed all night...without playing the Chicken Dance, Macarena, or Hokey Pokey(unless requested by the bride & groom). DJ Fernando also has the honor of being the only DJ recommended by one of the most beautiful venues in Kansas City, The Sawyer Room.

Contact DJ Fernando Entertainment for any questions you may have, including availability and prices.

My daughter and her husband wanted a very non traditional wedding and the music was an integral part of the ceremony and reception. One meeting with Fernando convinced all of us that he was the best man for the job.

Not only was the wedding meaningful and beautiful, but the dance floor was packed until midnight- and I have had requests for the playlist. My mailbox was filled the Monday after the wedding with notes from guests who had a fabulous time.

I unequivocally recommend Fernando for any event!

Fernando was awesome! He kept the dance floor packed, the photo booth rolling and did a great job with all of the announcements. Fernando does an excellent job reading the crowd and can handle any group. My husband and I met with Fernando a couple time before the wedding so he could get a feel for our style and thoughts for the evening. It was so nice to know that Fernando knew the music we love (and the music we like less), and could match the music to the mood.
He had the music locked down during for the evening so we could focus on our friends family and dancing. I am recommending Fernando to everyone I know. I'm looking forward to having another party so Fernando can DJ again!

Fernando was great! We heard really good things about him, but he was beyond our expectations. The minute the dance floor opened it was never empty. He also helped the both the ceremony and reception run smoothy by making every transition smoothly. The photo booth was also a hit and all the guest loved it. At the end of the night all of our guest raved about how our wedding was the best they've ever attended. Fernando was great to work with and very detail oriented. I would highly recommend him to EVERY couple.

DJ Fernando Entertainment did an excellent job at our wedding. We received several comments of praise regarding Fernando from the venue, family, and guests who attended the wedding. DJ Fernando was very professional and took time well in advance of wedding day to ensure that the song list was exactly as desired. This included finding and downloading foreign songs that are not easy to obtain. I would definitely recommend Dj Fernando to anyone planning a wedding and/or wedding reception.

The thing that struck me most about using DJ Fernando was his responsiveness. He would always return emails, calls and texts promptly and was always friendly and upbeat. He had me thinking he was actually excited about my wedding!

On the big day, I didn't have to worry at all. Fernando showed up early and had everything setup and worked closely with the support staff at our venue. He was hip to the concept that we were pretty busy that day and he didn't want to bother us. It was very refreshing to see that Fernando was a true professional and I could just let him do his thing.

Fernando also has a great PA voice and is naturally funny. You don't have to worry about cornball jokes coming from the DJ. He had the old and young folks dancing having a great time so what more could you ask for?

I would highly recommend him for any wedding.

Fernando is without a doubt the best DJ ever! Because of his music choices the dance floor was packed the entire night of my daughter's wedding reception, which is a huge concern for the host. I have been to events where no one is on the dance floor and the evening ends early. My daughter and son-in law (bride and groom) stayed until the very last song even though they had planned to leave earlier. The guests formed a circle around the bride and groom and sang the last song to them . . .totally unplanned but a perfect ending to a perfect evening and something we will all remember. We were so blessed to meet and work with Fernando. When we met him for the first time at the Sawyer Room his smile and upbeat personality impressed us. Throughout the year of planning he remained upbeat and positive assuring us he would have everything under control and we would not have to worry about anything. He kept his promise! The night of the reception he kept the activities on time, pronounced the names of all the wedding party correctly and covered every detail that we had discussed. He definitely gave us what we paid for and more. If you need a professional DJ for your upcoming event splurge and hire Fernando. I guarantee he will do an amazing job for you.

DJ Fernando was everything we could of asked for in a DJ and more. His professionalism was beyond reproach and he went above and beyond several times throughout the night. Fernando literally kept the party going until they kicked us out of the venue and even had the parents and children hanging around until midnight! Every request we had made prior to the wedding was played at the perfect time and meshed great with the atmosphere of the party. If you are looking for a DJ for your event you should stop your search right now and this is hands down the man for the job.

DJ Fernando was the dj for my best friends wedding. He did such a wonderful job. Always took care of the bride and groom and kept the flow of the wedding going. I'm glad she got him as a DJ as she called me the day she signed with him and was super happy! He also stayed after and talked with us and wanted to know how it went. He truly cared about the evening and in return it was priceless!

Fernando is without a doubt the best DJ around! The whole process was so smooth and easy. I told him what we wanted, and he blew my expectations out of the water. He was very quick at responding to my emails, texts, and any questions that I had. He went out of his way to make sure we had the exact light monogram that we wanted (even though we were late ordering it). When we met to go over the wedding details the week before, he played me multiple options of songs so I could hear them and pick out exactly what I wanted. During the reception, he kept everything in order and everyone on track, informing us of what was going to happen next. He kept the crowd engaged and made the party happen. All of my friends were saying how amazing the DJ was. He played all the right music to keep the guests dancing and having a great time. Fernando was amazing and super helpful! I would recommend him to everyone and have already since I have friends getting married next year! If you are looking fo a DJ, he is the one! Fun, great attitude, and you can tell he loves what he does! Thank you Fernando for the amazing wedding reception! You made it extra special! - Kelsey & Brian Mitchell

Mark and I were planning our Kansas City wedding long distance while living in Houston, TX. Once we had selected the Sawyer Room as our reception venue, DJ Fernando was listed as a recommended DJ. We thought it was interesting that everyone we asked about Fernando whether it was a guest from a past wedding or another vendor working the event, they all had the same reaction "He's FANTASTIC! He will definitely make sure the crowd enjoys the music and will keep the event flowing."

With event planning as part of my own job, I knew that it would be important to have a great Emcee who could handle the flow of the reception, as I certainly did not want to worry about this on our big day. All I can say is that Fernando went above and beyond our expectations. He played a great range of music from modern hits to classic ones (that our parents and gazillion aunts and uncles enjoyed). He even broke out some Selena hits by special request from the bride :)

All in all, I would highly recommend DJ Fernando for his knowledge of how to keep a crowd enjoying the night and getting them on the dance floor. He was not shy about communicating to our guests what was going on (ie announcing the wedding party, cake cutting, toasts, etc.) but at the same time it was very professional and classy.

Fernando also provided the photobooth that our guests had a blast using. His prices were much lower than other photobooth vendors and he had an attendant that supported the booth.

In 50 years - we'll sign him up for our anniversary party! And yes I'll still want to hear "Bidi Bidi Bom Bom"... :)

What drew me to DJ Fernando was his prompt response to our inquiries and emails. He invited us into his house for the initial meeting, and we met 20 days before to finalize the timeline for the reception. The reception went perfectly. We let DJ Fernando pick our playlist based on our preference, but we did not dictate which songs he play. He watched the audience reaction and was able to keep people on the dance floor all night. We would recommend him for all your events.

He was able to mix voiceovers of us reading love letters to each other with our first dance song, resulting in an extremely unique and emotional moment for both our guests and us. We also worked with Nando to create a very fun bridal party entrance that involved a strobe light, two fog machines, and the Chicago Bulls entrance theme song from the Michael Jordan-era. (Like I said, we had big ideas…) Our bridal party had lots of fun with this, and even said they felt like rock stars with the lights and the fog!
Our guests had a blast, and we have had quite a few friends and family members comment on how good our DJ was. We had a s’mores bar, and one of our friends said she actually never got any s’mores because she couldn’t tear herself away from the dance floor all night! The crowd was very happy with Nando’s song choices, as evidenced by many of our pictures from the reception. It was a great, great night!
We are so happy with our decision to hire DJ Fernando for our wedding and we highly, without hesitation, recommend him for any weddings, parties, and events. He met and exceeded our expectations, and we are so overwhelmed with gratitude for both his work and his friendship! He is truly the best!

DJ Fernando was the DJ for our wedding on March 7, 2014, and we could not be happier with our decision to hire him. From our very first meeting with him until after our wedding was all said and done, we never questioned our choice – he was that good, and the absolute perfect fit for us!
Since my husband and I live in the Phoenix area, I decided to fly out to Kansas City for a couple days to look at venues and talk to potential vendors. I reached out to Fernando on the morning that I was scheduled to fly out, and he got back to me right away (the first of many good things about him), scheduling a meeting before my flight back to Phoenix that evening. My mom and I met with him and were immediately impressed with his warmth, his relaxed personality, and his ability to relate to us. We both walked away from that first meeting feeling very confident that we had found the right guy for us. When I got back to Phoenix and talked to my then-fiancée, he was also on board, so we made it official and hired Fernando. We were so sure of ourselves that we never even talked to any other potential DJs, and have no regrets about that at all!
During the course of planning our wedding, Nando was a big help. He offered song and reception advice, was always quick to respond to texts and emails, and genuinely cared about us as people, not just as his clients. We even got together with him a couple times when we were in Kansas City and when he was visiting Phoenix for an unrelated event. It was fun to get to know him outside the “wedding world.”
My husband and I had a few ideas for our reception that were, shall we say, rather original and lofty. Fernando barely blinked at these big ideas, taking it all in stride and helping us plan these things. He was excited to bring our visions to life, and did a fantastic job making our dream reception a reality.

DJ Fernando was the DJ for our wedding on March 7, 2014, and we could not be happier with our decision to hire him. From our very first meeting with him until after our wedding was all said and done, we never questioned our choice – he was that good, and the absolute perfect fit for us!
Since my husband and I live in the Phoenix area, I decided to fly out to Kansas City for a couple days to look at venues and talk to potential vendors. I reached out to Fernando on the morning that I was scheduled to fly out, and he got back to me right away (the first of many good things about him), scheduling a meeting before my flight back to Phoenix that evening. My mom and I met with him and were immediately impressed with his warmth, his relaxed personality, and his ability to relate to us.

We met DJ Fernando by chance & he was professional and helpful from the first time. He was quick to respond to questions whether big or small. As a concerned bride, I asked him if having a wedding coordinator was needed and he assured me it was not required, yet my decision. We did not end up having a wedding coordinator at the reception and do not regret it. Weeks before the reception we had a final meeting, which went very smoothly and he reviewed all our questions and listened to our comments. Afterwards, we received an outline of what we had discussed for the reception.

At the reception DJ Fernando:
* Kept things on schedule
* Provided a great "Party" atmosphere - never saw the dance floor empty
* Good choice of songs, aligned with what we wanted

I have had the pleasure of attending a couple of weddings featuring DJ Fernando!! I am so impressed with his level of enthusiasm and he portrays such professionalism. He can read a crowd and ensures the events remain very classy. I was so proud that my referral of his DJ/emcee services was such a success and I had an absolute blast. On a final note, his responsiveness was amazing and with all the stress that comes with a wedding, it's nice to know that Fernando makes your day his #1 priority every step of the way.

A good DJ can make a difference at a wedding reception, but an excellent DJ can make all the difference. Fernando unequivocally falls into the latter category. To this day, my wife and I still receive complements about Fernando and the excellent job he did in maintaining a great pace, keeping people entertained and, most importantly, on the dance floor. He was able to keep more people dancing for a longer period of time than I've ever witnessed at a wedding reception--in fact, we had people dancing until the venue closed.

I've attended my fair share of weddings, and a DJ can make or break the reception. Without Fernando, I can confidently say that our reception would not have been as enjoyable. I credit his consultative and open-minded approach to making the planning and execution processes hassle-free and successful. Fernando is, without a doubt, worth every penny. If you want to make the most of the best day of your life, then Fernando should be at the top of your list.

DJ Fernando is amazing! Fernando was amazing from day one. When we first met Fernando, we immediately knew he was the right fit for us! He truly cared about my husband and I and took every opportunity to get to know us. When we had our 30 day out meeting, Fernando helped to plan the evening for us and explained how things would go. I left my music meeting feeling like I left a wedding planning meeting. I received so many compliments about our DJ the night of our wedding. He instantly gained great rapport with guests and he kept it going throughout the entire night. We had a good mix of people at our wedding and we simply said we would like older songs and pop songs played. He knew exactly what that meant. From the opening of the dancefloor to the closing of the dancefloor, there was a huge, constant crowd. I think the dancing could have gone on another 2 hours with Fernando. He knew which songs the crowd wanted to hear and played a great genre to please everyone, from older to younger. He is amazing at his job and can read a crowd like no one else and he is truly an amazing person all around. I highly recommend him to anyone. You will love him. He takes care of everything for you and for a bride and groom, this is wonderful and a must. We were at ease the entire time because Fernando was in charge!! Family, friends, and most importantly, bride and groom, were extremely happy with our decision and we know you will be too! FABULOUS!!

So happy we ended up choosing DJ Fernando for our October 19th wedding, he kept that dance floor alive the ENTIRE night! I received so many compliments on his music and ability to keep the dance floor moving. DJ Fernando was also great at reading the environment and moving the evening along at a pace that matched the guests and ambiance of the evening. I don't even think I realized this is something the DJ should know how to do before we booked DJ Fernando. But he did a great job, moving the night along at a pace that was organic and did not feel forced. His music suggestions were wonderful, everyone loved the bouquet and garter toss songs that were all his idea! We had so much fun and it wouldn't have been such a party without DJ Fernando's talents!

DJ Fernando was the best wedding DJ I could have asked for! From beginning to end he was professional, flexible, responded quickly and just an overall great person to work with. I am not always the easiest person to work with since I know what I want and that is what I expect, but Fernando exceeded my expectations by far! Fernando let us take the lead with the songs we knew we did and did not want played, but in the areas we were unsure about he picked things out that fit in 100%. Fernando was worth every dime and I would recommend him for any event! If I ever need a DJ again I plan on using Fernando again. He is AMAZING!!

Fernando was excellent through the entire process. He was willing to answer any questions we had, even if it was more geared to wedding plans. His preparedness when discussing what types of songs are needed when and at what time, suggestions and time he was fine with spending on it, made it a fun and less stressful experience.
His equipment was top notch and he led the announcements with lots of energy, which lasted throughout the night.
All guest comments on him were very positive and we know we made the right choice. I will suggest Fernando highly to anyone.

DJ Fernando is an entertainer! He is so fun to work with, and has such a great personality. He is not a wedding DJ, he is a party! When we met, we instantly clicked and I knew I just had to have him DJ our wedding. We had a wedding of two cultures and he already had so many great spanish songs for us to shake it too.

He plays songs based on what is filling the dance floor. We really appreciated that because it mattered to him and especially to us that people were having a good time. He's not the kind of DJ you need to worry about sending him a "what not to play" list, he knows what songs are too typical and overdone, or just plain lame.

He's very responsive and easy to work with. We enjoyed getting to know DJ Fernando, and hope to work with him again sometime in the future!

I highly recommend Fernando to any couple looking for a DJ. When we met with Fernando, we briefly described our vision for our reception (relaxed, minimal formalities, fun dance floor) and listed a few dance songs we like. He took that information and created the perfect atmosphere for our reception. After dinner, he got everyone out on the dance floor and kept the party going until the very end of the night.

I especially appreciated Fernando's flexibility. We wanted to have an outdoor dance floor, but we were not sure the weather would permit it. Fernando was willing to set up inside or outside, and allowed us to make the decision on the day of our wedding. It actually rained during the afternoon, but cleared up before our reception started, so we were able to have the dance floor outside. Fernando was flexible throughout the entire process.

Our reception was seamless, thanks largely in part to Fernando. Our reception venue had multiple rooms, so he gathered everyone together for my dad's speech. After that, he got everyone outside for dancing. He had to move speakers around throughout the night (to accommodate dinner music in multiple rooms, my dad's speech in one room, and dancing outside), but he did so without interrupting the reception at all.

We received so many compliments about our DJ after our wedding. Everyone had a wonderful time, and we definitely have Fernando to thank for that!

I don't know if we could be any happier with any of our vendors! DJ Fernando was extremely engaging from the first meeting onward and was an absolute joy to work with throughout the planning of our wedding. We had a pretty long "do not play" list and he hardly even blinked...and played some incredible music!

Most notably, my schedule filled up quickly before the wedding and I had my now-husband in charge of choosing music and covering the final details. I was told I was the first bride to have ever loosen the reins in this regard, lol, but I wasn't the least bit worried at any point. I trusted them both :)

We had all the grandparents and all the "I don't dance..." folks out on the floor and that's really saying something! The lights were equally gorgeous and our guests loved the photobooth, too!

We were referred DJ Fernando by our venue, the Sawyer Room. When we reached out to Fernando he was extremely responsive, friendly and upbeat. This was true throughout our wedding planning correspondence. Fernando even went above and beyond - we decided to do a surprise first dance and needed several songs mixed together for this. We asked Fernando if he could do this, which he instantly agreed to, and gave us several different mixes to choose from. In the final months up to the wedding we had a finalization meeting with Fernando and he went through the whole reception with us, creating an iternary all the "events" within the reception, and where songs would be played when (I never expected something so formal from the DJ and I was very excited he was as detail oriented as I was). He was very accepting of any songs we did not want played and understood what type of party we were going for. He gave great suggestions for parts of the evening that we needed to have songs and had no idea what tupe of song to choose (for example, during cake cutting).

During the reception itself Fernando was great - he really went the extra mile. From making sure the names of the wedding party were pronounced correctly to ensuring the right mix was played for our first dance by "triple checking" on the day of the wedding (I was super paranoid). We had many comments from guests about our DJ and how he did a superb job of keeping the party going throughout the night, which I couldn't agree with more.

Lastly, Fernando is an experienced DJ who does not drink alcohol during the event, which is essential since he does so much for the event. He is extremely professional while being super cool at the same time.

I would recommend Fernando to anyone (and I have already done so several times). If you want to have a classy yet amazingly fun event, DJ Fernando is your man!

I couldn't have asked for a better DJ for our wedding! DJ Fernando was recommended to us by our venue The Sawyer Room. We met with DJ Fernando several times before the wedding and each time he was professional and very flexible with our requests. Fernando made picking out important songs (ceremony music, wedding march, first dance, father-daughter dance, bouquet toss, etc..) so easy and had a lot of ideas for us. Also, my husband and I didn't make a list of songs for the reception because like so many different types of music. Fernando assured us that he would feel out the dance crowd on the wedding day. This was by far the best decision we made because people were on the dance floor ALL NIGHT!!

Dj Fernando also has uplighting and GoBo lighting which we used and guests raved about how great it looked. I would HIGHLY recommend DJ Fernando.. every wedding NEEDS a great DJ and he is it! It was worth every penny and you won't be sorry!

As a mom, it was my hope that our daughter's (and future son-in-laws) wedding day be everything that *they* dreamed and wished it would be! With Fernando as DJ/emcee of the reception, it not only went smoothly, it was flawless! I honestly cannot say enough about what a positive/fun/memorable experience this has been! Fernando's experience and expertise in the field put all of our worries and fears to rest and we were able to just concentrate on having a fun! We have so many wonderful memories - THANK YOU, Fernando!

Where do I begin...ok how about the first time my husband and I met DJ Fernando. We were actually coming to check out a venue and we got lost. This man in the lobby was able to detect our confusion and was kind enough to take us, personally, to the venue which was a few floors up. I don't know about you, but a kind mannerism goes a long way for me. So when it came time to pick a DJ, my husband and I went back to that moment we met DJ Fernando. And we were so happy we did! He was excellent to work with and would reply within a day to any questions or requests we had. He made the effort to met us personally on several occasions to have a consultation meeting and then a brainstorm meeting when it was closer to the reception date. I have heard such rave reviews about him and his confidence in his art made us very assured that there was no reason to worry! The music at our reception showcased our taste and style (he accomodates to all types of styles and genres of music), and because our reception had a Parisian them, he was able to play Parisian-influenced music as requested :) He even played special culture song for my father and I to dance to! My family and friends had such a wonderful time and said that DJ Fernando is one of kind and listens to the clients and guests. We recently were at a friend of mine's wedding and we tried to request a few songs and it was denied! DJ Fernando listened to everyone's requests and played them! I could go on and on about him....but trust you don't want to use anyone else for your special event! Thank you DJ Fernando for making our reception one of a kind!!!

Fernando did a wonderful job determining appropriate music and adjusting accordingly to the crowd's reactions. He was very professional and knowledgeable and a true asset to the wedding reception. We had several friends comment about how good he was at working with the guests and changing up music. We were all thoroughly pleased with his job!
Thank you so much!

The only comment for change, might be to have an additional set of speakers in the back of the Sawyer Room to allow more sound throughout the whole room.

This kind of attention to detail should tell you that he will personally make sure your wedding is amazing like mine was! He had my dance floor packed all night until the lights came on! He listened to every request my husband and I had and made sure we felt stress free on our day!! Do YOURSELF a favor and hire him!

We recently had the amazing pleasure of working with Fernando and his wife for our wedding and reception, with out a doubt he made the night between all of the work he did blending songs together for a special father daughter dance to just making sure the event stayed on schedule. He has such a great personality and really made the reception better than my wife and i could of ever imagined in our wildest dreams. We also tasked him with surprising our guest with the announcement of what our new baby was gonna a be. He did it with such flare it was truly a night neither of us will ever forget. In mine and my wife's opinion there is no other DJ for an event of this caliber. I would use Fernando again for any and all DJ needs. He is very detail orientated to make sure you get everything you expect and imagine then finds so many ways to go past that and blow your mind. He made sure that our guest had the time of there lives by keeping the reception hopping to the bitter end. I will continue to recommend him to any and everyone!!! We appreciated all that we did and hope to have the extreme pleasure to work with him in the future!

We would choose Fernando over and over again. We already had a DJ picked when we met Fernando, but changed our minds immediately after speaking to him. We began our contact through emails and he was always quick to respond. My family and I all worked during the day, so meeting times were hard. Fernando worked around our schedule not his. Fernando became more than a DJ, he became a friend. He helped us pick appropriate music as well as kept the party fun. He even helped us with our catering decisions. Fernando made the wedding process exciting and definitely less stressful. I told him I did not want a stuffy wedding reception, I wanted an epic party, and he did just that!!!! The dance floor was never empty, we had to push people out at midnight. We had so many compliments about him that night, mostly from past brides who were disappointed in their own DJ's. Fernando definitely did not disappoint us!

Thank you so much for doing such an incredible job at the reception. I was very impressed with how professional you kept everything all night along with the music selection. As I continue talking with people that were there, they keep talking about the food (obviously), you as the DJ and the photo booth. I am very glad Amanda’s parents decided to go with the photo booth because everyone loved it.

As Amanda mentioned I believe some of our friends are looking to book you or might have already. So once again thank you so much for DJ’ing. Since I consider myself a “amateur” DJ and have been told to stop requesting songs at other weddings I was really impressed with you and grateful we booked you.

If anyone is debating booking Fernando I hope this review helps. Trust me I have no regrets and there is a reason why he is such a highly reccomended DJ.

Fernando was awesome to work with from the beginning! He was extremely easy to interact with and really puts you at ease. He definitely takes the time to really get to know the couples he DJs for and works hard to add lots of personal touches to your reception. I am not very familiar with standard pricing for a DJ but I thought Fernando was very reasonably priced for the services he provided. Bottom line: He is personable, professional, and overall a really talented DJ and great person!

Fernando is phenomenal. Before the wedding, he was pleasant to meet with and listened to our needs carefully. We had some unique requests since we have a wide variety of beliefs in our families and wanted to be respectful of all. The challenge we gave Fernando was this: We want to interact with all our guests, do some traditional and yet a few unique things, have great dance music for young and old alike, and give our guests an evening to celebrate. Fernando did it all - we danced, laughed, mingled and enjoyed the whole evening. He checked in with us at different points, even following up after the honeymoon to make sure all was well. I would definitely recommend him and he will be our first choice for any future events.

We were introduced to Fernando at a venue that we didn't end up using. But from our first conversation, we felt very comfortable with him. He could not have been more professional and thorough. We have a relatively eclectic taste in music and wanted those tastes reflected in the songs played at our dinner & reception. Fernando could not have been more flexible and accommodating to our needs. He took our requests and concerns to heart and created a perfect evening for us and our guests. He went above and beyond to make sure we were happy, even taking some last minutes input into account.

He and our planner worked together seamlessly to make sure the event ran smoothly and that everyone knew what to expect.

Under "Unique Services (Other)" - The extra touches (gobos and uplights) really made the already beautiful venue, look even more amazing. The photo booth was another great option that Fernando provided and it was major hit with our guests.

We could not be more pleased with the care and attention he provided in making our wedding night one that we will never forget. We can never thank him enough.

DJ Fernando was everything we could have hoped for in a DJ. He was professional but still knew how to have a good time. He was responsive and always went out of his way to meet us for discussions on the music and generally planning the day. Out of all the vendors and people we dealt for planning the wedding reception I would say he was top notch. He was a VERY low stress individual which we loved. Additionally, he is a pretty legit DJ to boot. He actually knows how to mix, cross fade, etc. He is not a DJ that just plays songs. If you want him to he can actually perform REAL DJ tasks. His timing on song choice was spot on in that he did not overly play slow songs and respected our opinions on what we wanted to hear and what we did not. I would highly recommend DJ Fernando to anyone that wants to add a professional, low stress, high quality DJ to their wedding reception.

My husband and I had our wedding reception at The Sawyer Room on 12-1-12. Fernando did a wonderful job! We met with him a couple times throughout the year while planning. He always agreed to meet at a location convenient for us. The party was a hit! Everyone was dancing and had a great time. No awkward moments and he didn't mispronounce anyones name while announcing the wedding party. DJ Fernando has a wonderful personality and it was obvious he genuinely cared about making us feel special on our wedding day! I would 100% recommend Fernando for any event.

Choosing Fernando as our DJ was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. We contacted him because we had gone to a wedding that he was the DJ at, and we both remembered it being one of the most fun receptions we had been to. From the very first email, he was so easy to work with and was both professional and personable. During our meeting with him, he really took the time to get to know us as a couple and wanted to make sure our reception was just the way we wanted. At the reception, he made sure the night went smoothly every step of the way. He kept things moving and made sure he played music that kept our guests on the dance floor. He even busted out a few of his own dance moves! Fernando also did a great job of checking in with us throughout the night to make sure we were having fun and if there was anything we needed. Since our wedding, I have had several people tell us how great our DJ was. Without a doubt...Fernando is not just a wonderful DJ but an all around great person!

The first time we met Fernando we were wowed by his outgoing personality and fun attitude. He seemed like everything we would want and need from a DJ at our wedding reception. After working with him in the planning process, we learned that he was the perfect blend of organization with lots of ideas, but also willing to take any suggestions we had to make the night individually ours. His extra offerings such as up lighting and gobo light were an added bonus to his already amazing light and sound display. With Fernando, we had no worries that the party would be a success and all friends and family would remember our reception forever!

We had the special treat of securing DJ Fernando for our daughters wedding Oct. 26th, at the Sawyer Room. He was unbelievably fantastic! We have been to 10 weddings in the last year and a half, and without a doubt he was the absolute best DJ and music in general that we had ever heard! When there are so many people talking, not paying attention to what is going on, it takes a masterful person to get control of the room. It's like herding cats, but Fernando was a wizard and had us all in the palm of his hand all night!!! He created a magical evening for our daughter and son in law. One that we will never forget!! We will never forget Fernando!!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!! Michael and Sheila Berry

Our dance floor was seriously alive and packed the entire night! Most DJ’s play your typical wedding reception music and it feels like a broken record at times…you won’t experience this with DJ Fernando. Where else can you find a DJ who will listen to what your favorite songs are and actually play all of them? We still have people call us and ask who our DJ was because it was the BEST reception they’ve ever been to, hands down!
I knew from day one, that music can make or break your wedding reception. Fernando knew exactly when to play different genres of music to get all ages on the dance floor. But the best part was, toward the middle of the reception, he played current songs that got all of our friends saying “This is awesome, I haven’t heard this music at a reception before!” Not to mention, his speakers and equipment are top of the line, producing high quality sound throughout our entire venue at The Sawyer Room.
Whether you like hip hop, country, 80’s to current hits, Fernando will customize your night to fit your taste. Fernando played the perfect mix of music that kept people dancing until the lights came on at the end of the night, literally! I have a video to prove it! I will cherish that video forever. Thank you, Fernando, for making our special night unforgettable.

I have attended numerous weddings in the past in which Fernando was the DJ. Seeing his charisma and interaction with the attendees first hand, I knew that he was the DJ I wanted for my wedding. I contacted him the week I got engaged to ensure I would be able to secure a date. As he is so good, he was already booked for every Saturday in the two months we were looking at to get married. Unable to let go of the hope of having him at my wedding, we decided to switch to a Friday night instead.

I am so glad that we made the decision to make sure we had Fernando at our wedding! He was very easy, and most importantly fun, to work with during the planning and the event. In a time that can have a lot of stress and coordinating, it was so nice to know that he would have everything in line and entertain our guests. Somehow my dad ended up on the dance floor doing the Gangman Style dance! Fernando even remembered to play a song by my favorite 80's hair band during dinner, which is one of my top 3 memories of the day!

Thank you so much for everything Fernando, and we are so happy that you were part of our special day!

I would highly recommend using his services to really bring out the best of everyone at your reception. Also did a great job with his uplighting that really set a great ambiance at the venue.

My guests are still talking about DJ Fernando. Not only was he our DJ but he was great at assisting with overall event coordination. Like all brides, just when I thought I had prepared for everything...Fernando reminded me about another small detail. He's support and guidance throughout the entire planning process was a huge value.

I would definitely recommend his services to other brides in the Kansas City metro area (especially those getting married at the Sawyer Room). He understands the importance of moving the party along, but not overshadowing those key moments with lame commentary or outlandish behavior.

We couldn't have selected a better DJ for our special day. My only hope is that I get to attend another wedding he DJs. Thank you, DJ Fernando, for helping us celebrate our union in such a special and "memorable" way.

Fernando was the DJ for my wedding ceremony and reception at Boulevard Brewery. Simply put, he did an amazing job. He is extremely professional, played exactly our music choices, did not take over the party by talking incessantly as some DJs do. The whole dance floor was packed from beginning to end. My husband and I had a very good idea of what we wanted so that helped him, but Fernando is experienced enough to come up with a game plan for you. You cannot go wrong with him and if I would recommend him to anyone thinking of organizing a wedding reception.

Thank you for the touching e-mail and review. I can't tell you how much it meant to receive your e-mail the day after Ashley's reception. As the mother of the bride, I'm sure this was just as special of a night for you as it was for Ashley and K.C. I'm glad I was able to be a part of it and make it a fun night for everyone. The fact that there were still over 100 people on the dancefloor at the end of the night says alot about what a great party it was, and how many good friends/family Ashley and KC have. I will also miss talking to you but you have my e-mail so don't hesitate to keep in touch. Thank you again Debbie!

The day was so perfect and honestly Fernando made our day simply amazing. EVERYONE cannot stop talking about how it was by far the most fun wedding reception they had been to and it was all thanks to our D.J. My husband and I had a total blast, my only complaint was that he did too good of job because we couldn't tare ourselves from the dance floor to talk to people. On top of it all he really kept everything moving smoothly and made sure we stayed on track with everything we wanted to do throughout the night. I simply cannot say enough good things about how great of a job he did for us. Lastly, having my dad DJ was the highlight of several of our lives, it was definitely a dance party none of us will ever forget. I cannot wait until I can come up with another party for him to DJ!

I've never seen a dance floor packed all night long! I received so many compliments from family and friends about the professionalism and just plan awesomeness of Fernando. He was always very flexible with my Husband and I and also our family. When I didn't want to hear the chicken dance or cotton eye joe and my family requested them, Fernando would play them when I was getting pictures outside to please my family and myself. Whenever a song had the crowd dwindle a little bit he would spin out of it and move onto the next. He knows how to keep the crowd hoppin'! Thanks again for a great wedding reception.

Taylor-

Thank you again for letting me be a party of your reception. You and Ryan were great to work with and I'm glad you guys enjoyed the party. I will tell you that I very rarely play the Chicken Dance or Cotton Eye Joe. It's ONLY if it is requested by either the bride, the groom, mom, dad, or brothers/sisters...so long as any those requests are not on the "do not play list" that I will play either song(unless they were specifically requested by the bride & groom). Your sister was very persuasive so even though I hesitated, I buckled and played the Chicken Dance and Cotton Eye Joe . It ended up working out as everyone had fun with both songs and the dance floor didn't clear out. : )

Thank you again and congrats again to you and Ryan!

We used DJ Travis Gentry for our wedding. He was FANTASTIC! He was eager and willing to meet with us three times before our wedding to tie up all loose ends. When we were at a loss for song ideas, he suggested perfect songs to really get all of our guest involved! He played appropriate music for all ages and made sure everyone was having fun and dancing. When the night ended, everyone was still on the dance floor not wanting it to end. I would definitely recommend Travis for your wedding. He was such an easy part of the wedding planning process :)

We hired Fernando as the DJ for our wedding reception, and he was great! From the minute we were introduced to the last dance, everyone had a great time and the party flowed beautifully. He was great at shifting gears from the sit-down dinner music, to the first dance and getting the crowed pumped up to hit the dance floor. There were still around 40-50 people on the floor for the last song...no one wanted to leave! There wasn't a minute when it was empty.
We also didn't give Fernando a list of songs we "had to hear", instead we just told him to go with the flow. He definitely knew how to keep a party going and read the crowd. He had some great suggestions for us too, like playing our college fight song right after our intro to really pump up the crowd. We would recommend Fernando to any bride and groom looking for a DJ!!

DJ Fernando was absolutely the best! He was professional yet super fun and kept us entertained while not being overbearing. He caters to what type of music you would like and has a lot to offer if you are unsure. He makes every effort to make your wedding personal - he even spent time memorizing how to correctly pronounce each of our 16 bridal party's names (which was not an easy task as half of them were non-American names). He also met with us prior to the reception to make sure our needs were met. I hope we have a chance to hire him again someday - he makes any event a party! I also highly recommend his lighting packages which added the extra special touch to our reception. I cannot have imagined a better DJ in any aspect.

5 stars are not nearly enough to rate Fernandos services. I will absolutely insist that anyone I know who needs a DJ book with him. He bent over backwards to make our night an absolute blast.

There isn't enough that I can say to communicate my overwhelming gratitude for Fernando's services. I experienced every brides nightmare when I had to fire my DJ less than a month before my wedding. Lucky for me, DJ Fernando had an opening and jumped right in to helping me plan my perfect day. He was always available for questions or last minute freak outs. He helped me make every detail perfect. I was not an easy bride as I changed my mind several times about musical selections. I was even texting him the morning of my wedding with last minute edits to songs and he took it all in stride. I can promise you that if you hire Fernando, you will never regret it. We partied all night and even our mother's never left the dance floor. He was so attuned to me all night. I only had to make eye contact with him and he knew exactly what I wanted and did it for me. I cannot stress how highly I recommend Fernando for your wedding as he made mine perfect. Don't make the same mistake I did and choose a DJ with a flashy website. Choose a DJ who is personable, professional and goes above and beyond for his couples, choose DJ FERNANDO! It will be the best decision you make for your wedding. Thank you Fernando.

Love always, Kimberly & Brian Bertelsen

There isn't enough that I can say to communicate my overwhelming gratitude for Fernando's services. I experienced every brides nightmare when I had to fire my DJ less than a month before my wedding. Lucky for me, DJ Fernando had an opening and jumped right in to helping me plan my perfect day. He was always available for questions or last minute freak outs. He helped me make every detail perfect. I was not an easy bride as I changed my mind several times about musical selections. I was even texting him the morning of my wedding with last minute edits to songs and he took it all in stride. I can promise you that if you hire Fernando, you will never regret it. We partied all night and even our mother's never left the dance floor. He was so attuned to me all night. I only had to make eye contact with him and he knew exactly what I wanted and did it for me.

DJ Fernando was awesome! After an hour discussion at a restuarant about our preferences, he knew exactly the type of wedding we wanted. DJ Fernando played everything we asked and was able to add live mixing and beat overlays to improve upon the requested music. Beyond, the usual DJ responsibilities, he coordinated the events during reception, handled a few special requests (e.g., routine for the first dance), and kept the party rockin', which was hard considering the age/tastes of some of the guests. Not only would I highly recommend DJ Fernando, but, after meeting with him occasionally over the months before the wedding, I consider Fernando Esquivel someone I'd like to have a beer with after the wedding as well.

Can't say enough great things about DJ Fernando. He rocks!!! He not only knew our venue well and could run the whole night for us without needing a wedding planner, he really took the time to make everything special for us. He got all of our music selections right, kept the flow of the evening on track and kept the party going. Plus, he is just a really nice, easy to work with guy that knows the job, how to treat his customers and gets it right. Definitely worth the time and money to book DJ Fernando for your wedding!

DJ Fernando was extremely accommodating to all of our specific requests. The music selection was the most important element to my husband and I with a mutual love to "bust a move". It was extremely critical that we chose a DJ we trusted would take this seriously. And when we cautiously showed him our extensive list of pre-selected songs we hoped he could play, I think we amused him. I liked that it felt like a team effort and he was very respectful of our desires. Our dance floor was packed from the very first song and was that way until the very end.

Fernando really transitions the songs seamlessly and pays close attention to what types genres of music our guests seemed to be responding to the most. Our reception was a blast and we could not have been happier with the service he provided us. Thanks Fernando!

DJ Fernando was AMAZING! He did a great job of appealing to a wide variety towards the beginning of the dancing and transitioned well into the evening for a fun and lively dance party. The floor was packed the entire evening and I continue to get compliments on how fun the reception was because of the music and dancing. We had a few song requests and left the rest up to Fernando. He knows how to get the crowd up from their seats and having a good time. Also, Fernando did a wonderful job introducing the party and families, involving the guests on the dance floor, and ensuring the flow of the event went as planned. We wish we could hire him again to DJ because we loved working with him! Fernando was extremely flexible and easy to work with.

We received numerous compliments on our Wedding night...Many of which stated it was the "best wedding they ever attended" and the "funnest wedding they ever attended". Multiple people specifically complimented the music selection and were asking who the DJ was!. Our guests were rarely seen in their seats...Everyone was dancing and having a great time..Including US!! Thank you Fernando for listening to what we asked for, being flexible, creative, accomodating, and FUN to work with! We never wanted the evening to end!

DJ Fernando did an excellent job with our big day. He was very well prepared and kept the evening on track. We even met with him for several meetings prior to our wedding day to ensure that songs were correct, our entrance went smoothly, and all names were pronounced correctly. During the reception, he kept both of us on our time schedule, but did it in an enjoyable, flowing manner. He also did a wonderful job of reading the crowd to judge the type of music to play during the dance. Overall, he was the perfect mix of professionalism and entertainment.

My Husband, Adam, is out of the country quite often on business so it was up to me to find reputable vendors for our wedding in October. I came across DJ Fernando while looking at a Venue in the downtown Kansas City area. The Venue owner assured me that even if i didn't go with his venue he would still recommend DJ Fernando. So i got online and did what any bride does, i crept effortlessly on his website and thumbed the yellow pages looking for reviews. I only found great reviews from his former customers. So when i called to talk to him i booked him on the spot. Fernando and I talked quite a few times during the 6-7 months prior to my date and were able to meet up the week before the wedding to go over our wedding playlist and such. Fernando was such a laid back professional, he was easy to talk to and made us laugh a lot. On the day of our wedding Fernando showed up early and was set up and ready by the time my guests arrived. We got nothing but compliments on the music and everyone loved that he didn't haggle or pressure dancing, not that he needed to due to the music that was played. We danced well into the night and had a blast sharing our night with Fernando. There is no other DJ in the KC area i would have rather had entertain my guests.

We had our wedding reception at The Sawyer Room, and DJ Fernando is the only DJ on their preferred vendor list in the DJ category. This spoke volumes to us, and we knew from the very first conversation we had with Fernando that he would be perfect for our reception. We gave him little to no direction on songs to play, genres of music, etc. We knew that we wanted our guests to be on the dance floor having a good time, and Fernando made that happen. Not only does Fernando have a wonderful personality, but he has the ability to read the crowd and play music that keeps everyone on the dance floor. There was not one moment all evening where the dance floor was empty. Several of our guests commented that he was the best DJ they had ever seen at a wedding reception. We recommend Fernando to everyone we know that is looking for a DJ.

I sent Fernando this email the week following our daughter's wedding reception:

Fernando,

I guess it might be appropriate to tell a DJ, "YOU ROCK!" You absolutely exceeded our expectations. We have had many people since Saturday night tell us they have never seen so many people actually dancing at a reception. The variety of music was spot-on. Meg's friends have described you as, "amazing!" We really appreciate the time-line you prepared and very discreetly you, Eric, and Jodie made sure we had our cues and knew what to do and when. That left us to enjoy the evening. We also appreciate the fun yet sophisticated atmosphere you created. Nothing tacky or cheesy, just perfect! Eric and Jodie from the Sawyer Room could not have made a better suggestion than you for the DJ!

Please feel free to give my name as a reference. I will give you the highest praise!

Very sincerely from the MOB who rocked the balcony,
Theresa S.

We LOVED DJ Fernando!!! He has been the best DJ we've ever experienced at a wedding, and when the reception started, two of our ushers were so excited to see that we had chosen Fernando. As wedding guests, they remembered him from another reception and said he was the best they've seen. He's personable, easy to work with, and it's a great value. Also, he intuitively knows what to play and how to provide a great flow to the evening. He plays a great variety of songs, and he is great at appealing to all age groups. He draws people out of their chairs and creates a lively atmosphere. We didn't have to worry about a thing the day of the wedding, and we'd definitely hire him again if we ever needed a DJ for a party. We'll be encouraging family members to go with him for their events, as well.

Easy to work with, has a lot of experience in picking songs that will keep people on the dance floor. He also helped us decide the best order to do all the traditional dances, cake, toasts etc. Fernando is NOT your typical douchey type DJ guy that is overly cheesy. My husband LOVES music and had several things picked out - Fernando played everything on the list and also added a few songs that fit with the mood we were going for. He knew when to play some older stuff to get the parents on the dance floor and when to bust out some new stuff to keep it fresh and keep the younger people interested. Has a great reputation with Boulevard Brewery and I am guessing with other venues. Several of our guests commented on how great he was! :)

We met with him a couple times proir to our event and let him know what we wanted. We let him use his judgement on a lt of things and it turned out perfect!
How often do you attend a wedding reception where people are still dancing when it is time to go home? That is what happened...we were married over a year ago and people are still talking about how much fun it was and how the DJ made it all the better.
If you are looking for someone who is fun and that will make the party he is the DJ you should have!

I don't even know where to start on how amazing Fernando was! Music was a HUGE factor for us in planning our wedding. My husband loves music and we wanted to be sure everyone had a good time. From the very beginning, the music was PERFECT! He knew how to start it out right with some old school classics to reach the older crowd and get everyone in the dancing mood. Then as the night went on, he just took it up another notch and had the place dancing NON-STOP! It is one of the things we got the most compliments and comments on about our wedding. Anytime we know ANYONE getting married, we always recommend Fernando.
On top of that, he's so fun and easy to work with! He made everything so easy and effortless and we knew we didn't have to worry about a thing when it came to keeping the party going! We ended up being some of the last ones to leave because we were dancing with our friends until we shut the place down!

Then as the night went on, he just took it up another notch and had the place dancing NON-STOP! It is one of the things we got the most compliments and comments on about our wedding. Anytime we know ANYONE getting married, we always recommend Fernando.
On top of that, he's so fun and easy to work with! He made everything so easy and effortless and we knew we didn't have to worry about a thing when it came to keeping the party going! We ended up being some of the last ones to leave because we were dancing with our friends until we shut the place down! Read less

FANTASTIC!! So good that I want to crash any wedding/party that he gets.

One higlight (there were many) A guest requested a Prince song that was a little raw as my 9 year old niece and 7 year old nephew were with me and he did his majic to cover the word.

Fell short of the 5 star for the little detail....I requested that he wear a pastel shirt any color. He said he had a purple one in his closet and not to worry. He didn't and looked a little disvoled, which was kind of a shock as he always looked trendy and put together when we met prior to the wedding.

Would book him again in a heart beat!

DJ Fernando Entertainment responded with the following comments:

Thanks for the great review Michelle! It was really nice to get to know both you and Matt. You 2 are awesome and I wish you the best! As for the comment on my shirt....I'm going to have to disagree. You had me doubting enough to make me pull the shirt out of my closet to look it closely....and after a very detailed examination, the shirt in fact DOES hold up to pastel color standards! In the dark, or bright sunlight....the shirt is indeed a pastel purple. So I must respectfully agree to disagree with the comment on my shirt being disolved. Pastel color is by definition of the word a light color...which to the untrained eye may in fact look "disolved". Either way, I've decided that when you, Matt, Kate and I go on that motorcycle ride, I'm tearing the sleeves off the shirt and wearing it while we ride. : )

All jokes aside, thanks again for choosing me to be your DJ. The great thing about being a wedding reception DJ is that I get to meet so many great people along the way.

DJ Fernando was a brilliant addition to our wedding - he helped our musicians sound amazing, moved the evening along with his announcements, and most importantly, played wonderful music! The pre meeting was perfect so he could get our style down, and then he provided the perfect compliment to the party. He kept folks on the dance floor until the end! His lighting also transformed an already beautiful room. We highly recommend Fernando!

I work for a Whiskey manufacturer and have hired DJ Fernando Entertainment twice for industry events.
They are easy to communicate with, make payment (PayPal), and were on time for the events.
They are perceptive of the audience they are playing for and our guests enjoyed themselves immensely.
I will continue to work with this DJ service every time I have an event in the KCMO/KCKS area.

We origionally contacted Fernando about doing the DJ services for our wedding. He was already booked for the date of our event but highly recommended Travis Gentry for our wedding at Boulevard Brewery. Travis did a great job! He was very flexible with meeting times and made sure that he was on our page before the wedding weekend was here. During the wedding, we had a lot of compliments on the choice of music and the guests all seemed to have a great time. He did a great job of reading our crowd and playing the appropriate music. Would recommend Travis!
