The Davis Event Group allowed us to have a seamless and simple experience working with Sound Nation. Jan Davis was incredibly responsive, friendly, and professional and was able to answer all of my questions and concerns. On our wedding day, Sound Nation made our event extra special and all of our guests are still talking about how much fun they had on the dance floor. I can't recommend them enough!

The Davis Event Group is an amazing organization to work with. The owner, Jan was always quick to respond and work with us on everything we needed. Time passed between us contacting the Group as we looked around, and before we knew it, we were so close to the wedding! I contacted Jan and we picked right up where everything was left off.
Our DJ, Aaron was just perfect. He played all the songs we requested and was able to pick up on our music vibe based on our request list to keep everything going. He acted as a wonderful MC, directing groups to move between rooms and events, keeping everyone on time, which can be a task! The party went a little longer than coordinated and Aaron kept going until everything was over. Couldn't ask for a better experience than what we received from DJ Aaron and the Davis Event Group.

We hired "Broadsound", a band represented by The Davis Event Group, and they were awesome! People are still complimenting them. They did have a key player change and guitar player change, but I don't think it impacted anything seriously at all. Aaron, the frontman, is such a nice and easy guy, we really like him a lot, he's very sweet. The members in the band are all super fun, nice, open, and helpful- they even adjusted their playing to cover my off-tempo fills after letting me hop on the stage to play "Superstitious" with them on the drums!

We will definitely recommend them without a doubt, we received lots of feedback that they were really great.

Jan from Davis Group was great to work with, very responsive, and showed sharp expertise in navigating the planning process. We never waited long for an email back, and she always seemed to prioritize our comfort.

We did all our booking with Jan Davis who was extremely helpful and informative and always quick to respond to any and all questions throughout the entire process. We ended up booking DJ John who was able to play music for our ceremony and cocktail hour (he played acoustic guitar) and then became our DJ for dinner and dancing. He set up all the equipment for both before the wedding and the transition between his roles seemed seamless from our end. His guitar playing was lovely and he either knew or learned all the songs we requested for our ceremony (we had modern-ish song requests). DJ John was an enthusiastic and well spoken MC for our introductions and reception events and his music selections for dancing were spot on! We heard all the songs and genres we love...it was just perfect! After the wedding Jan was quick to reach out and make sure everything had gone well and that we were satisfied with the experience. It was so convenient having one person who provided us with such a variety of skills that met all our music needs. Overall our experience with the Davis Event Group and DJ John was seamless, convenient, and very pleasant. I would highly recommend their services!

DJ Aaron from the Davis Event Group was the best DJ for our wedding. The entire Davis Event Group helped us from the beginning of our booking to post-wedding to make sure everything was perfect for our wedding day.

DJ Aaron read the crowd very quickly and knew the perfect songs to play. He stuck with our playlist and guest recommendations, and didn't play any of the songs that we did not want. I am over the moon about how great he is and how great the Davis Event Group is!!

THANK YOU!!

Kathy-
I just wanted to thank you again for the wonderful music at our party on Friday night.

I doubt I need to tell you how much my guests enjoyed themselves - the fact that you had fifty-year olds writhing on the floor during "Shout" was proof enough!

All ages loved your music. It was exactly what I imagined - though better!

Thank you so much for making it so special.

Best,
Elizabeth

What a terrific time we had dancing to DJ Kathy’s music. I cannot thank you enough for directing us to her. She was the perfect fit. Not only was she the easiest person to work with, she played a great background music for the dinner after which, she got people up and dancing As .anticipated, the women were up and dancing and the men joined in only during the slower songs. She was so funny when she noted that our group lets her know when they don’t want to dance to a certain song, they literally sit down. At one point there was no one on the floor, she quickly changed the song and they were up again. She noticed when people needed encouragement and made one of our younger guests feel like a star.
Thanks you DJKat

Jan was a delight to deal with, incredibly responsive, articulate and very organised. When we contacted her we weren't yet sure of the vision we wanted, so she listened carefully to all our thoughts and suggested John, who is a fantastic guitarist (in case we did want him to play prior to the ceremony and during the cocktail hour- which we decided to do!) and brilliant deejay all rolled into one.

John isn't a big personality, which I will be honest was a bit of a concern to me at the beginning, but as we spoke more leading up to the big day, his dry sense of humour matched ours perfectly. He was incredibly resourceful (when I couldn't quite figure out how to get him a high-quality recording of some Malaysian kompang music I wanted played at various point throughout the day, and with the wedding weekend approaching and I didn't have my wits about me to try to figure it out. He managed to find a 30 second clip on-line and had that teed up and ready to go and I was none-the- wiser how he figured that all out!!), he showed up very early to the venue on wedding day to set everything up, was incredibly flexible when it started drizzling during our outdoor cocktail hour while he was playing the guitar, during the reception he listened to the crowd and chose songs wisely, AND was good at keeping guests away from our "no-play" list. I didn't even know he had to do that until one of my guests told me weeks later that they requested something and he just calmly said it was on our no play list (showed a print out of it) and asked if there was anything else they would prefer instead. All done incredibly professionally. Oh- and there was an awkward moment when we couldn't find my dad to give his speech and John handled it all very well having the crowd laughing and cheering. Everyone at my wedding loved him and still can't stop talking about him. I will continue to recommend Jan and John to anyone looking for a deejay/guitarist for many years to come.
