We were very fortunate to work directly with Jim Ogle for our wedding. He was absolutely wonderful! Whenever I contacted him prior to the wedding he was always very responsive and helpful. The day of the wedding he makes sure the reception flows smoothly and that it is everything you are wanting. He also kept people on the dance floor all night! :) I would definitely use him again if I have the need for a DJ in the future.

Drew Holloway was our wedding DJ from Ogle Entertainment, and he did a great job! From the first time we met with him, we knew he was exactly what we were looking for. Ogle's DJs are experts at weddings. You won't be hiring a run-of-the-mill club DJ with them. Everyone we worked with throughout the process showed the utmost professionalism. Drew readily accepted all of our music suggestions, and people enjoyed and/or danced to everything he played at the reception. He was also a very good MC - fun but not overly showy. He also seems to have a really good time doing what he does. People love it when they look up and see the DJ dancing to his own music! When we hired Drew, we knew we didn't have to worry about our reception music at all. I highly recommend him.

Jim Ogle was my DJ for my wedding and he did a great job. He is very professional, calm, and friendly. very likeable. he definitely took into account my special songs and you can tell that he pays attention to the party vibe because as soon as he realized no one was feeling this one song he changed it. he even had a song that my husband's grandmother requested that I had never heard of. later in the evening he had colored lights going that looked great against the cabin ceiling. he mixed in the slow songs well and he kept everything on time. I'm glad I got Jim to DJ my reception because you don't want to take any chances with those quick few hours.

Jim was GREAT!!!! I wasn't sure how to run the reception thinking we would get everything out of the way early. But Jim sat down with us and gave us some ideas. We then ended up leaving it up to him and let him run the reception. He kept everything moving and helped to get people up and moving. I called him several times the week before in order to change things or make sure that i had given correct information. He just went with it and made any changes that needed to happen.

Jim did an AMAZING job! The dance floor was full all night! He is super talented, super hard working and super friendly. He goes above and beyond to make sure your wedding dayand or special event is magical and memorable. A good dj/mc at your wedding is so super important. His hard work and timing made all the difference when it came to taking part and enjoying all the special moments on your wedding day such as the ceremony, the first dance, the cake cutting, the family dances, the send off and everything in between. Loved working with Ogle Entertainment!

Jim Ogle is awesome!!! He was my DJ for my April wedding and I can not rave enough about him! He makes everything so seamless and easy for the bride. He is always willing to help out and do anything that he can. He has a 'Don't worry, I've got this' feel about him that makes you feel so at ease as a bride. His music taste is great and can get any crowd dancing and having fun. He also helps coordinate your day with you, he is fantastic when it comes to timing all the events at your wedding as well. A 10/10 all the way!

My husband & I were married at Whitestone Country Inn on October 27, 2012, and Jim Ogle with Ogle Entertainment was our DJ. In one word…AMAZING! Jim is the most personable, helpful & professional DJ out there. He had the perfect tempo of music for the dinner portion & transitioned flawlessly into the dance portion…and the dance floor was packed the entire time. We have had so many of our guests tell us what an awesome job our DJ did, how much fun they had at the reception, and that it was the best dance portion of a reception they've ever been to. WOW! I knew we thought Jim was fantastic, but have been blown away at other people's comments. Job VERY WELL done! Highly recommend!

I hired Ogle Entertainment for my wedding on October 6th, 2012. Jim Ogle was the DJ at my sisters wedding on March 17th of the same year, and he did a great job so I decided I wanted to use him as well. Jim was already booked for another wedding, so they told me that Brian would be the DJ at my wedding.

They asked for a list of songs to play at the wedding. I told them that I was not very picky and there were not any songs I specifically did not want played and the songs on their list of most popular songs was fine. I was told that I needed to actually write out a list of specific songs that I wanted played at my wedding. My husband and I took the time to go through songs and compromise about specific songs that we would want played so that we could give them a list. None of the songs that were on our list were played. Instead they just played the popular hit songs. Which was fine, it was just frustrating that they made us take the time to write out a whole list if they were not going to use it.

The worst part though was that Brian got our first dance song wrong. We wrote which song we wanted to dance on the list that he provided to us. My mom also included the song name on the itinerary that she gave Brian. Instead of playing the song I chose, he played a fast song. I did not want to make a scene at my own wedding, so my husband and I awkwardly slow danced to a fast song. To me the newlyweds first dance is one of the most important songs and one of the few times when you actually have to play a specific song at a specific time, and the fact that he got it wrong was very disappointing.

I let Jim Ogle know that I was not satisfied with my experience. His response was "Let me sleep on my response. I can't say I am not disappointed. I am sorry and I need to think about this." It has been 2 days and I have not heard anything else from him.

Jim actually came to dj our wedding. He kept assuring me that even if it was going to rain that he was going to make it the best day. He did just that. He made sure everything for the ceremony and reception ran smoothly because the flow of the music sets the tone for everything. He made sure everyone was up and having a blast at the reception. We are so glad we picked him to be our dj.

I booked Ogle Entertainment because of a few great personal recommendations, and they did not disappoint! Jim Ogle was our DJ and he was wonderful! Although we didn't really communicate with each other until 3 days before my wedding, Jim was incredibly calm and put me at ease as well. He was extremely flexible and we even talked about adding another song the day before the wedding! Everything was perfect and Jim kept the guests dancing the whole night!

Jim at Ogle Entertainment is absolutely amazing. He was wonderful from the time of planning until we exited from our reception. Jim not only was our DJ at our reception he also did the music for our ceremony. He was able to make the ceremony flow very well. He was able to read our crowd at our reception and play things according to them, he was also able to keep the flow moving and wanted my input before we moved on to the next thing. Jim is well worth the money and to me is cheap for a DJ this amazing. I look forward to using him for another event soon.

Jim at Ogle Entertainment was an absolutely wonderful DJ at our wedding reception. He was great to work with and extremely helpful to planning the whole reception. He sat down with us before the wedding and helped write a schedule of the evening and went over music choices with us. Our reception was an absolute blast and most of the credit goes to Jim. He was so good at reading the crowd and getting everyone out on the dance floor. He also went above and beyond and came to us multiple times during the reception to make sure we were having a good time and to see if we needed anything. Ogle Entertainment is awesome, I highly recommend them!!

Jim Ogle was our wedding DJ, and he did a really fantastic job. Everyone was dancing, and we got a lot of compliments on the music. The dance floor was packed the whole night. We had a great time, and Jim was very well-organized and on top of everything. Jim was also very easy to work with, and went above and beyond to make sure everything was going well-- he even got there really early to help set up, on his own initiative. We also thought it was terrific that he already knew all our other wedding vendors and had worked with them before-- it made planning everything easier. Thanks again Jim, for a great party!

We interviewed many DJs in the Knoxville area and immediately knew that Jim was the right fit for us.

First of all, he is a musician, so he has the knowledge of and appreciation for ALL types of music...from Jazz to classical to country to Top 40...Jim will make sure that your event is complete with the different genres of music that make you smile. Plus, he has all the equipment needed to make your ceremony and reception sound amazing!

Jim also knows how to keep an audience excited and get them dancing. He works so well with all of your other vendors and makes sure that the night is flowing smoothly.

We also used Ogle Entertainment for lighting. Our reception was in our back yard and Jim made our reception feel like a magical wonderland. The lighting was fantastic and he totally controlled the mood of the lighting throughout the night. My favorite part was how all the trees seem to "come alive" during a fast dance song. Brilliant!

Do not hesitate to hire Ogle Entertainment!! I would like to throw another party at my house just so I could have Jim DJ again. :-)

I did not forget! I booked Jim & not only had him DJ the wedding but he hooked our venue up with lighting too! He ran the show & kept our guests on the dance floor....and also made sure my groom & I had drinks at all times! :) Jim is super fun & a true professional at what he does. THANKS JIM!

Jim Ogle is awesome! He was highly recommended by the event coordinator at Gettysvue Country Club, so I chose him to DJ our wedding reception based on her suggestion. We were not disappointed! We filled out a questionnaire before-hand of preferred song choices, which he obviously read and took to heart. He had a feel for the guests and what music they would like. Our guests danced the night away and had a great time. Later, many guests told me what an outstanding job Jim Ogle had done. You could tell that he enjoys his job and has a talent for entertaining a crowd. He promptly responded to the two emails I had sent him asking a few questions as well. We definitely recommend Ogle Entertainment!

Jim Ogle did a fantastic job on our ceremony and reception music. My dad had several special requests for him, which he did a good job of addressing and he really went above and beyond for these requests. He also did a great job of commanding attention and keeping the reception moving, but didn't at all take too much attention away from the bride and groom and our guests. Most definitely worth every penny and we would highly recommend!

Jim Ogle, is by far the best DJ. As a former musician myself (playing clarinet for 8 years), growing up with a grandmother that has pure talent on the piano, and a mother that just has great taste (Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Nat King Cole, Michael Buble), I knew exactly what I wanted; the very best artists with the best sound possible. At first I was very apprehensive to the idea of having a DJ play my music selection for the ceremony. I was afraid it was going to sound cheesy and bad coming out of a sound system. I knew I shouldn't worry though considering my bridal consultant (Sonya Scott, A Perfect Day) recommended him. I trusted her completely. However, I was still a bit nervous up until I walked down the aisle how it was going to sound. I guess one main reason is because even though I had met with Jim before I never heard the quality of his sound system. However, when it was that time, and I walked down the aisle with my father, the music sounded as if it were coming from heaven (of course this means my wedding was outdoors). We were in a garden getting married at the base of a gazebo. Jim did a wonderful job tucking himself back behind the bushes and hiding all of the equipment. His taste of music and his presentation was far beyond my expectations from a DJ.

From my experience with working with Jim, I would like to let brides know one thing. Jim came across to me as the type of guy that waits until the last week to get it all together. I am not saying this to deter you from using Jim because like I said before, he was beyond what I expected from a DJ when it came to quality. However, if you are the bride that needs updates from your vendor, just let him know and he will cater to you respectfully; as I asked him to. Jim never really asked me directly for the music, other than stating in his contract to provide him with the music selection 2 weeks prior to the event. After I did so, I waited a couple of days and then emailed him to check to make sure he got it. He apologized for not responding earlier and replied that he was currently working on everything. That definitely put me at ease.

Having Jim at the wedding not only made things flow terrifically but he also made things fun! He is not the type to just sit back and press play, he definitely interacts with the crowd! Most friends and family commented on what a great DJ I had. It was definitely an enjoyable event!

So, if you can't afford a band, I would highly recommend Jim Ogle to assist you in your ceremony and reception music because he is very affordable and offers the best quality of music and sound.
