Jeff had a huge part in making our wedding spectacular. He coordinated effortlessly with us during the planning process, and it was easy for us to tailor musical selections to our preferences using his website, which houses his entire music library. Jeff also worked with the coordinator at our venue in perfect unison, pacing the timing for our ceremony music, introductions, and speeches & dances expertly so we never had to wonder what was happening next. On top of it all, he also mic'ed up our officiant for the ceremony, which was held outdoors. Jeff is a true professional as well as true lover of music, which was important to us when selecting a DJ. Several people commented to us how much the musical selections "felt like the two of you," and we don't think that would have been possible without Jeff's approach to event entertainment. We would recommend Jeff to anyone without hesitation.

We were so thrilled with our event because of the music! We were guided through the music of our event in the pre-meetings, as Jeff brought up points that we hadn't even realized. He always said, no problem & that he would take care of it. The music selection and emcee parts throughout the night were impeccable. Jeff even coordinated with the bartenders to make sure that toasts and champagne were passed at the correct times.

Jeff Holmes was an absolutely amazing DJ for our wedding. He read the crowd and kept people on the dance floor the entire night. A DJ is key to a perfect wedding reception and he was everything we could have asked for.

He met with us several times beforehand to make sure we had everything set up. He responded to every e-mail promptly and was very comparable in price to other DJ's. He kept the reception flowing and let people have fun instead of talking on the mic all night! Another great aspect to Jeff was that he played the part of the songs you wanted to hear and moved on. This way we were able to dance to twice the songs!!

I have been to a ton of weddings and he by far was the BEST I have ever seen. Thank you Jeff for making our special day perfect!

Could not have been happier with Jeff! He was amazing. We told him we wanted our guests to have a great time. We have never put on a party of this size (250 people) and did not know what we were doing. We put it in his hands and he knocked it out of the park!!! Best news is, my buddy is getting married in June and Jeff is his DJ so I get to party with him again soon!

Would recommend him for any event. He has been doing this a long time. He did not want to be the center of attention. He did not do the goofy stuff most DJ's do at weddings. He helped us with things that are not in his "job description" like lining us up before he announced us into the reception, etc... He made us comfortable to the point that he was a part of the party and not a guy we hired.

Thanks Jeff for an awesome night!!!

I was married at Powell Gardens (Kingsville, MO) and planned my wedding all the way from Las Vegas, NV, where I reside. I didn't have any personal referrals for a DJ, only a list provided by the venue and I wasn't comfortable with any of them. So with the help of Google (yes Google) and weddingwire, I found Jeff Holmes and he was great!! His website drew me in immediately! It was user friendly and provided a lot of information. We had a very diverse group of guest and I could see from his site that he had all types of music that we loved. After meetig with him, he was happy to book a gig that allowed him to mix things up a bit. He was very professional! But most importantly, he listened to us during our brief meeting and provided everything we asked for during our reception. He adapted to my unconventional first dances, then he played my favorite song for the guests first dance, and for the last dance-a song by my husbands' favorite band (my husband didn't think it was possible to incorporate them into the reception). It was perfect! He was great and the guests were dancing all night! We couldn't have made a better decision. Thank you so much Jeff!!!

Wow. Just by reading Jeff's reviews, I knew Jenny and I were getting a great DJ that would keep the party going and people out on the dance floor. We were not disappointed. As expected Jeff has a vast knowledge of music, and great crowd awarness. As soon as the dance floor was getting a little light when playing a few classic's for the older crowd, he would switch genres to satisfy all of the friends and family our age. Exactly what you would want in a DJ. That alone makes Jeff worth the money, and wholeheartedly fulfilled the contract agreement as expected. What Jenny and I didn't expect was ALL the little things Jeff WENT OUT OF HIS WAY TO DO!
- Very organized in his preperations and meetings with us beforehand.
- Availability. Any question or concern we would have before, Jeff would respond to email/text in a matter of hours or even minutes.
- Suggested a perfect recessional song once he got an idea of our music style.
- Worked with my brother-in-law who performed our first dance with guitar, to ensure sound quality that day.
- Went out of his way and talked with my Aunt and Uncle who have a special needs daughter. Made their night. PRICELESS.
- Our caterer forgot to give us a plate for our cake cutting. Jenny and I didn't care in that moment. Jeff said, "No wait". He ran to get us a plate. SERIOUSLY WOW.
I am sure there our more great stories I will hear as week goes on. Jeff without a doubt is the best DJ you will find. But to Jenny and I, what made our wedding day... is Jeff is an even better human being, and could not have been a nicer guy!

Holmes was recommended to us by our venue, The Berg, and thank goodness! Our DJ, Patrick Lentz, was absolutely fantastic. He was wonderfully communicative and helpful during the planning process, with a calm confidence that completely put me at ease. I never, ever worried that he would do anything less than an amazing job. He listened to all our requests and concerns, asked the right questions at the right times, and made sure that both our ceremony and reception were perfectly scored. I have never seen certain members of my family dance as happily and constantly as they did, thanks to Pat.

The term "wedding DJ" gets thrown around a lot as a synonym for cheesiness. I have to say that Pat is the complete opposite of that silly cliche: he's a total professional, a legitimately cool guy, a thoughtful and prepared professional, and a killer DJ with excellent taste and a sense for guiding the energy of a party.

My husband and I are so grateful.

Jeff DJ'd our wedding and it couldn't have been any better! My only instructions were to "play good wedding music" and we couldn't have been happier how it turned out. With all the planning that goes on before the wedding, it was nice to not have to put together an entire list of songs for the reception and let him take care of the cocktail hour easy listening tunes as well. Great music selection, great equipment, great time, highly recommend.

With all the planning that goes on before the wedding, it was nice to not have to put together an entire list of songs for the reception and let him take care of the cocktail hour easy listening tunes as well. Great music selection, great equipment, great time, highly recommend. Read less

I cannot say enough good things about Jeff- he is a true professional! He was the DJ for my sisters wedding a year prior to mine, so I knew exactly who I wanted to DJ my reception when I got engaged. He kept the dance floor hopping all night and really listened to our requests. He does such a great job at keeping the reception flowing nicely and on time without being distracting. I would absolutely recommend Holmes Music World to anyone looking to have a blast at their event!

Jeff did a fantastic job for our wedding ceremony and reception. Before the event he met with us twice, played any music we requested, and we trusted his judgement on other songs completely. Overall we had a great experience working with him from start to finish. Many people at our wedding complimented the music and the mood it created at the reception. Thanks, Jeff! -- Patrick M.

While it would be easy to look at this review and see 5's across the board and think we're still "in the honeymoon stage" in regards to our wedding, but I, the groom, am rather even keel when it comes to praise.

From the start of the process Jeff made it extremely simple. 2/3 of the songs we picked out for our dances were not initially in his library, and were extremely long. Jeff immediately added the songs to his library and made note of when we wanted the songs to fade out. On top of that, during the songs he watched us closely to know when we were ready to stop. Seems small I know, but really, the small things are what makes the difference between just an ok reception and an amazing one.

On top, or rather should I say immediately after the wedding party songs, Jeff got nearly half of our 120 guests on the dance floor, with a solid 30 of them being "older," and got them engaged in the dancing for the entire night.

Not only would we recommend Jeff to any friend getting married in the greater Kansas City area, we already have, which means we hope to see him again soon!

We signed up with Jeff Holmes music world and worked with Justin Collette. Our reception was a blast. Everyone said that they had a great time, and our music was awesome. We just met with Justin once about a week before the wedding. No hiccups during the reception. Justin guided us through the important moments at the beginning of the night in a low-key way. I liked that he was able to keep us on schedule without stealing the show. The dance floor was occupied all night long. In terms of cost - we only met with one other DJ, and we found that Holmes Music World was more cost-friendly for us. We had a great event and would absolutely recommend him to others.

Jeff Holmes was a fantastic dj at our wedding reception. We planned our wedding from out of town and he made himself available to talk with us and plan quite a few times. He has so much experience and really helped walk us through any questions that we had.

Once we got to the wedding day, he was completely on top of the whole evening, helping us through each event during the reception.

Best of all though, is his taste in music. He will absolutely work with your tastes and ideas and his musical knowledge just enhances it all. Almost every guest was up and dancing ALL NIGHT. The music was so good we just couldn't stop.

He is professional, experienced, fun, and easy-going. So glad he was there with us on our wedding day!

Jeff is a fantastic DJ, very easy going in attitude but supremely professional. He had a couple suggestions for us (because really, how many more decisions could we make) that were spot on. We had several generations dancing on the floor at the same time and THAT is a testament to Jeff's super DJ powers. My husband is a last minute planner and had several day of additions that Jeff handled seamlessly. Jeff doesn't run out in a chicken suit and didn't make us do any of that goofy stuff but he was involved just enough to keep the reception going strong for a solid 5 hours.

Can I just say that he had EVERYONE ON THE DANCE FLOOR THE ENTIRE NIGHT- I didn't know this was actually possible. Hey elegant brides during cocktail hour and party animals at night- this is your guy. I had one of those weddings with a SMASHING dance party. This dude is cool, suave and ready to party. My husband is polish and his grandpa brought a CD of polish music which Jeff downloaded on the spot and had all of my new Polish relatives polkaing away for a couple songs. He also had my sorority sisters mingling pretty well with my husbands fraternity brothers with modern music.

ABSOULTELY PERFECT
-cocktail hour had a Frank Sinatra and Jason Mraz theme
-dance party had everything which had old and young on the dance floor
-great adaptable DJ
-hip/modern music
-seriously I never stopped dancing i had such a great time.

Jeff- we will always recommend and rave about you, thank you so much

Not only did Jeff DJ our reception but made a great recommendation for a guitar player/singer to play at the out door cocktail hour....we spent a lot but got a great party in return. Plus they were fun! the entire bridal party followed them to the bar next door to keep the party going! Read less

Every Brides' worst nightmare come time for the reception is that the DJ is bad and can't keep the guest entertained. Well, this is not the case with Jeff Holmes! He even had the old folks up and dancing. Eric and I were able to give Jeff our wedding songs and then let him play the music he knew would get everyone out of their seats and on the dance floor. Not only can Jeff keep the party going, but Jeff is an awesome guy with a passion for what he does. Holmes Music world is a no BS kind of company. No contracts, no price list, no limitations! He does not charge you for his travel, set-up & breakdown. He only charges for the time he is working for you! Jeff, thank you for all of your hard work! Without the best DJ in town, our wedding would not have been the success it was~ JoLynne & Eric, KCMO

Justin Stancil of Jeff Holmes Music World was awesome! We met with him one time and booked him before we even heard him play. He plays acoustic at restaurants around KC. We listened to him one time, and by the end of the night knew we made the right choice because he was standing up on the bar playing the guitar! :) We loved him because he could play acoustic part of the night, and be the dj the rest of the night. He offered to learn our first dance song so it could be acoustic for us. He said he could play as much or as little acoustic as we wanted. He was so flexible with us. We had numerous comments on how much people loved our dj. He played acoustic up until dinner, and then switched to dj'ing after that. We just gave him a list of songs we liked, but he didn't have to play... and told him to go with it. Just to keep people dancing! And he did! I heard him play some of the songs we suggested, but he did his own thing as well. And he is the nicest guy, we will continue to go to see him play around KC. We're both so glad we booked Justin. He's relaxed, but very professional at the same time.

Jeff Holmes was awesome! He was exactly what we were looking for in a DJ; we wanted someone professional, yet laid-back. He assisted us in creating the perfect wedding reception atmosphere where the dance floor was packed all night long. Additionally, he did a great job of making sure that the flow of events throughout the night was smooth and seamless. To this day we still get comments from our guests on how much fun our wedding was.

Jeff Holmes did an amazing job at our wedding ceremony and reception. He was open to our ideas regarding music selections and had great suggestions for things we could not think of. He is so fun and nice and amazing to work with. I was nervous about our reception as we had an Indian/Western wedding and I did not know if everyone would dance to the different types of music. Jeff did a REMARKABLE job of getting everyone on the dance floor and having a good time, even if the music was unfamiliar to them. His music selections and timing could not have been better and he is really able to read a crowd to see what is going to get people up and having fun. People were dancing non-stop at our reception and everyone has commented on what a great job he did and how much fun they had. A million thanks to Jeff!

I HIGHLY recommend Jeff with Holmes' Music World. He had our friends and family dancing from the start of our reception until the final song was played at the end of the night. The dance floor stayed PACKED the entire night, and that was exactly what we wanted. Jeff was easy to work with and allowed my fiance and I to guide the evening. I believe someone else could have played the EXACT same playlist as our DJ, but not in a way that kept people dancing all night long. Jeff's skill of knowing WHAT to play WHEN was essential to the fun memories we have at our reception!

Booking Jeff, of Holmes Music World, was one of the best wedding planning decisions we made! One of the most important goals of our wedding celebration was to make sure our guests had a great time by attending a GREAT PARTY!---and a great party it was, becase the music and DJ'ing was outstanding! Our DJ really tried to help create the party we envisioned by making sure to play the songs we really wanted to hear and making sure NOT to play songs we (and our guests) really did NOT want to hear! He announced well and kept the party mood going! Our wedding party and guests were in it to really BOOGIE DOWN, and I think we got it done that night, partly thanks to Jeff! Jeff has a laid back, cool, up-to-date style, and he is very easy to work with. We would recommend him to anyone. We were pleased!! :)

Jeff is great to work with and is SO experienced! He may be pricier than some other vendors out there, but we didn't spend extra money on a string quartet or live musicians for the ceremony so we were okay spending a little more and he was well worth the money. He's a great emcee as well--keeps everyone in the loop at the reception, but isn't on the mic too much (I've been to events where the emcee/DJ wouldn't be quiet!) All in all, we would highly recommend him!

Your father pushed the mute button on the mic. I told him I would run the muting from the sound board, he didn't need to touch anything. We actually tested the mic right before I set it under his chair.

Jeff Holmes was great to work with, he had a great selection of music and played most of what was on my list. He did not play any of the songs that were on my no play or any of the genres of music that were on my no play list without permission from myself or my husband if they were requested. I found his website to be a little difficult to use and so I didn't, I dont think he was very happy with me for that, but all in all it was a good experience and I would recommend their services.

The DJ for my event was Justin Collet with Holme Music World. Justin extremely nice and very easy to work with. I did however think his services were overpriced and was disappointed in the overall quality of his services. At 200.00 an hour, the only setup at the DJ booth was a laptop computer. Also, in our first meeting he said he would be wearing a tux at our wedding which he was not. I gave Justin a list of songs, which I was very explict he use closely, and I kept hearing lame songs that cleared the dance floor. Then when I went to request a song on the list I have him, he didn't have it. He is nice but not very dynamic, not the guy you want at the helm of your party. It was very stressful having to dictate the next songs that would need to be played in order to keep people on the dance floor. I would say it was probably the most dissapointing aspect of my entire wedding. I wouldn't reccomend his services unfortunately. He was reccomended to me by Jeff Holmes of Holmes Music.

Holmes Music World responded with the following comments:

We're sorry you felt stressed at your event. Several guests thought it was a great reception as they danced to what Justin was playing. At the end of the evening he got several compliments, even from the Bride's mother. Justin didn't have any information about wearing a Tux, something we don't normally wear unless it's a Black Tie event. It comes off as cheesy, something we stay away from. Suit, Jacket & slacks, etc. work for most events.
Glad you felt the equipment was clean in appearance. That's the goal. But he setup so much more. Speakers, amps, mixer, wireless mic system, wires, etc...
We're not a "get on the floor and act goofy" kind of DJ company, far from it. Justin IS nice and easy to wok with, glad you experienced that. The evening went off well. Numerous compliments from family members and the bridal party. I am very disappointed that she was not satisfied in her service. My goal as a DJ is to give the bride/groom EXACTLY what they want and to make there night special, fun, memorable, and stress free.
