Klay was beyond fantastic from our first email to him right through to the end of the wedding night. During the reception, after everyone's congratulations came "your DJ is incredible!" He is funny, entertaining and has a definite knack for playing up a crowd. Without any experience in hiring DJ's, we were recommended to him by our photographer and after looking up other reviews online, we knew we didn't need to search any further...his 5 star rating says it all. I cannot express how grateful we are to have found him. If you are considering hiring Klay for your next event, LOOK NO FURTHER...I would hire Klay again in an instant. He made our night completely stress-free and had the dance floor hopping all night!

DJ Klay is awesome! He is great a reading the audience to get everyone up and dancing with perfect music. I think every single song the dance floor was full. He was really great at interacting with the audience. He was easy to get a hold of. He always replied to every question in a timely manner. I would recommend him to anyone. I had a lot of my guest give compliments about him and asked about his contact info. He was very organized too!

Wow. Just wow. If you're looking for a wedding DJ, your search is over. Don't think about it and look around, just go with Klay. Trust me. He was by far the best, and I do mean BEST, wedding DJ I have ever had the pleasure to meet. He had many games that everyone could play, got every single person involved and into the event, played a great selection of music that had everyone dancing, was hilarious, and really just made the whole night. His emcee services were top notch. I gave him information on the wedding party, parents, and guests, and he definitely did his homework and was able to introduce everyone with tid bits about them and jokes. It made everything very personable. Just book him now. You won't regret it!

Klay was an excellent DJ for our wedding. He provided a wireless microphone and speakers for our ceremony to support our officiant and live musician, as well as the music for the cocktail hour, dinner and dance. We also booked his big screen attachment to show our photo slideshow and proposal video. Klay was extremely professional when I interviewed him the summer before our wedding, and he took the time to answer all our questions leading up to the big day. He was very good at reading the crowd and selecting the appropriate song/activity for each moment. We had many people compliment us on our choice of DJ and our guests enjoyed themselves well into the night. DJ Klay played a very important part in making our day memorable and we are so thankful he was part of our wedding.

My now wife and I were fortunate enough to have Klay DJ our wedding. We could tell from the first time we met Klay that he had a passion for music as well as being a DJ. To say that Klay did a great job was a huge understatement. He was amazing. From cocktail music, and interludes between speeches and lulls, to constantly moving around the room and interacting with everyone and getting a great feel of the atmosphere and keeping it going. We were more than pleased with the DJ service we received.

Besides comments on how beautiful the bride looked, the next thing out of everyones mouth was "What a great DJ!!" Can't say we disagree. Klay did was excellent, professional, funny, and kept everyone excited and on the dance floor all night!

Thank you so much Klay for the entire evening!

Klay was amazing and we would recommend him to anyone and everyone! He kept the music going and played music that we wanted. He even had a big screen so while we were eating cake or having our midnight lunch he was playing really funny commercials or bad karaoke clips for all our guests. He did audio commentary which was hilarious too. We can't say anything but good things about him. We were glad he was recommended to us. You won't be disappointed. We will be using him for any future events that we do!

DJ Klay was great! He was very interactive with the crowd and had games for all ages to liven up the crowd when it was getting quite. He was also very attentive to the moods of the crowds as well. Many people @ the wedding commented on how good he was and 2 seperate couples we know are going to use him for functions within the next year just from hearing him @ our wedding.

Once the dinner was over at 8:30pm, I was very stressed out that everyone would soon be bored and that the party was over. But, in no short order, Klay kept the party going past 1am, and it was the best dance I have ever been to. He had everyone dancing, played the perfect balance of music, and every single guest young and old said it was the best DJ they has ever experienced. Klay is a must have for ANY event.

Hey Klay.

Wow, what can we say other then...we had the best party ever!!!

We wanted to write to say a huge thank you for your contribution in making our day such a massive success. Loads of people commented on how great the music was, and the fact that you managed to gauge the mood and tempo of the crowd perfectly and play appropriate tunes all night long. You were absolutely brilliant! Everyone from the youngest to the oldest enjoyed the songs and I think we had the whole age range dancing so that is in itself a massive compliment!

We will certainly be recommending you to others. All the best, Klay!"

Klay provided excellent DJ services for our wedding. He put us at ease before the wedding by explaining what he could offer, listening to questions and responding in a way the reassured us that he would fit his services with our needs. Klay was thorough in the planning stage, as he asked us to provide detailed information about our wedding day which was also helpful at prompting us for what to consider to make the day run smoothly. At the wedding Klay was prompt and ready for each part of the day, making everything run seamlessly. We did not have to once think about the music or entertainment as Klay made everything flow together perfectly. Klay was excellent at reading the feel of the room at our reception and filled in the gaps with with music and entertainment that kept our guests enjoying themselves throughout the whole night. He was able to engage all ages at our reception with music and party games for all ages of adults and younger kids, that everyone enjoyed watching and being a part of. By the end of the night everyone was having such a great time that all of our friends and family were on the dance floor together. Klay kept the energy of the evening going to the end and I can say that I haven't had so much fun dancing with my family and friends before. I would recommend Klay's services to anybody looking for a wedding DJ because of his professionalism, responsiveness to us as we were planning our wedding, and adaptability on the day by reading the room and fitting his services with our guests so that everyone felt at ease and thoroughly enjoyed themselves!

Klay was incredible, and we would highly recommend his services to anyone! Well worth every penny! Klay was on his toes all night, and had funny music and sounds to accompany speeches and activities that were going on. It was rather hot in our venue, and majority of our guests spent most of the night outside, which made it hard to get everyone inside for the dances and garter toss/bouquet toss. Klay was very patient with this, and payed well attention to when people were in the hall, and got those activities going. He definatly made the night, was very interactive with our guests, and entertaining. Well done!
