TKO was awesome! They played great music and if anyone wanted a song to hear they would play it right away! I also asked if they would do score up-dates for the Cardinals baseball game and they had told me that they already have planned on doing it, which was amazing! They played songs that my friends and I loved to dance to and also songs that the older crowd could dance too

Chris, Marlin, Melanie and Casey-- did an exceptional job-- Chris and Marlin was always there to answer any and all questions-- no matter how many times I called them, I once said I am sorry, they said sorry for what-- it is our job as your DJ-- they was amazing during the planning process, and took a lot of pressure off of us on our special day. We even wrote out the times and was very organized for the event-- Marlin said "I wish everyone was organized like this, it would make our job a lot easier." Chris was amazing and told me it'll be perfect and it was.

Casey-- who was the DJ at the reception did an amazing job, knew his stuff and was amazing, the guests still talk about the fun that they had at the reception. I know it saved me a lot of stress and they was amazing. I will use TKO over and over and over. I highly recommend this company to everyone-- GREAT JOB TKO!!!!!

If you must make cuts-- please don't make the cuts on the entertainment, food and photography, they're the most important!

Andy was awesome! Our crowd was mostly older and he picked the perfect music from our list. He also honored our request of not taking personal songs from the crowd (which after viewing some of the requests I am totally glad he did). We wanted a very contemporary feel to the wedding and had all of our songs picked out previous. After we left, in the last 30 minutes of the reception, he played the requests. Very happy! He was hilarious and got very involved in the dancing with us. Totally recommend him. He talked to us like he was part of the family! He was also quite good at getting people to sit down or come to the dance floor to keep our events on time.

I decided to book TKO DJs after seeing them at a bridal show. I had heard of them before, so I figured they were a reputable business. We had a meeting with the office manager about 3 weeks or so before the wedding date to go over all the song and timeline details. The day of the wedding, everything went just as planned. The DJ (I'm sorry, I don't remember her name, but she was very nice!) checked with us about all our "special" songs right before the reception got started. The music was great all night, and all of our guests had a blast dancing the night away.

Wonderful! Our DJ was dressed nicely, behaved professionally, very friendly. This company let me choose every single song that was played, and even let me control the number of slow songs vs. fast songs. The DJ checked in with me throughout the night just to make sure I was pleased with how everything was going. TKO was a preferred vendor for a reception site, so I got a 10% discount, but even if I hadn't, they are still very affordable and well worth the price. My contact person, Melanie, was great and very good about staying in touch with me thoughout the planning process. I would definitely recommend this company!

TKO came highly recommended to me and was actually less expensive than other djs that we looked at. They were so helpful and patient working with me as I was extremely indecisive on reception music. They have tons of recommendations but don't push you to do anything their way. Dj the day of was very prepared and professional. We asked for a moderately outgoing dj and he was exactly that.

TKO definitely provided us with a fantastic DJ for our reception. They were one of the best prices we found in St. Louis and were definitely very professional. A week or so before the wedding I was contacted and we went over the timeline for the reception. The DJ did an excellent job trying to keep us on track and fit everything in. He played music that was enjoyed by all and fit in all of the special requests that I had made. He even got up and danced with everyone to keep the crowd involved. Definitely worth the money!!

Of all of the vendors that we used for our wedding and reception, only one, TKO DJs, was truly amazing. Melanie, the office planner at TKO and Chris, our DJ exceeded our expectations on every level and made our wedding better than any I have been at. Now that the day is behind us, it is clear to me that the choice of DJ is the most important decision in the planning process. Make sure you are as happy as we are and make sure you strongly consider TKO DJs!

TKO Dj was great to work with. They ensured our dance floor was full all night long! Melanie was very helpful with our music and played many different song samples to make sure we were happy with each of our selections during the planning period. Matt was very energetic and kept with the vibe we wanted for the night....he played many songs off our must play list but incorporated other song selections that kept the party going! He even made a special, shortened version of a Pink Floyd at my dad's request for our father/daughter dance. :)

We were very pleased with our decision to use TKO DJs. Neither my husband nor myself are very into music, so we didn't want to spend a large portion of our budget on the DJ. TKO's prices were very reasonable and our DJ did a fantastic job. He played what we wanted him to and asked us for our approval when guests had special requests that he seemed unsure about. He did a fantastic job as an MC and was great at reading the crowd in order to determine what to play.

Very prompt correspondence and at the reception. The DJ was just as we requested, present enough to keep the party going, but not talking between every song. He had the guest dancing and made wonderful song selections based off of our interest. It went wonderfully.
Highly recommend them. The price was about the same as other DJ's, a little higher, but they gave me a discount for booking at the bridal show that made them the same price! Great and reliable.

We had a great experience with TKO DJs. They made some great suggestions and helped us plan everything out. You also get to see the entire music list, so you can completely customize your reception music. They also help you put together a timeline for the reception and coordinate with your photographer and videographer to make sure everything stays on track and to keep everything moving.

The only disappointments I had were that they were supposed to announce two birthdays during dinner and play "Birthday" by the Beatles. This ended up happening later in the night. Our DJ also played one of the songs on our Do Not Play List and not all of the songs on our must play list were played. Everyone loved the music though and these were minor details that only I really noticed and were not a big deal, but if you're extremely picky about your music you may want to be very clear about your lists.

TKO isn't the cheapest but saving on the DJ isn't the place to do it! Everyone remebers the music and if they were having a good time or not! Our DJ was awesome, he did exactly what we wanted him to do and got the party started! We had a lot of dances planned, but at last minute (during the reception) decided to cut out one of them, and he just picked right up and kept going. We also had a slide show playing, but we couldn't get it working, and the DJ took care of it and entertained while we got it going! Awesome job and great party! Don't skimp on the DJ! Spend the extra bucks and get TKO!

Overall the process with TKO went very well. We did like our DJ, although he had a little bit of a hard time getting started.... we had wanted a mix of modern pop, rap, some oldies, and some country. The first two songs were country, which kinda irked me but a friend spoke to him and he was able to adapt. He kept the dancefloor hopping all night long!! It was also too loud at one point, but I asked him to turn it down and he adjusted it to the perfect level. Overall a great choice!!!

TKO was recommended by our event coordinator, and the choice was spot on. They really guided us on timing of toasts and announcements, as well as what type of music works well throughout the night, but we were the ones who chose the "must play" list. I don't think there was a time when the dancefloor was empty. Great vendor!

Our guests all commented on how much they loved the music. We basically created a playlist for the DJ because we knew our guests and what they would like and because we didn't want to hear the same donky wedding music that has become standard and cheesy to us. They were a little reluctant to do that because that can often lead to you hearing what you want and no one else liking it and no one else dancing but it worked out really well for us. The DJ mixed things up well and kept to the playlist while switching fast to slow, well-known to not, etc. The sound quality was good - not too loud and not too soft - and lights were a nice added effect to not have to pay extra for. Only problem was never meeting actual DJ before event so he had to go over a couple things with us at a bad time right before announcing us into the reception.

I have known the business of TKO for several years. We have family friends that worked there. I knew we were going to go with TKO before we set a date. We used them for my older brother's wedding 4 years before my wedding. The DJs are professionally dressed in tuxes, and will get the crowd going if you desire for them to do that. They let you set the settings of the evening. They come find you to ask about the next item on the list that you requested.

I definiately will recommend them to anyone.

The office staff (esp Marvin) was very helpful. They made great suggestions for our dances as well. On the actual date, there were a few hiccups. The dj assigned to us forgot a requested microphone stand for our officiant; played the wrong version of our first dance song; and did not announce one of my bridesmaids. These sound like big deals, however, his song choices were wonderful and our guests were dancing the whole time. He was professional and made the evening run smoothly.

The management is great but our dj was ok. He had a technical failure during the reception and played some poor choices (Beauty & the Beast) that were not on our play list or even close to other songs we selected. If you are not a music buff you may be o.k. but if you love music like we do you may want to choose another d.j.

Service: Upon booking the staff was very nice, accommodating, and although you know that they deal with numerous requests and handle numerous weddings a year they make you feel as though you are their only client (at least the person we were in communication with) Josh and I believe on other person before we booked them.

DJ: The dj was nice and very professional. He assisted with keeping the time line in order as well as made sure to keep in contact with us throughout the night.

Cons: Sadly there were a few things that they really need to work on. We provided a do not play list that consisted not of specific songs really but more of genres and dj techniques. We asked that they do not make any dj/club mixes and just to play the songs as they were. There was one club mix played (I am a stickler about this so I wasn't too happy). Not all of the songs (there were a few actual songs listed) on the must play list that were played. We opted for a moderately energetic dj with some interaction with the crowd and he didn't seem to interact much. We didn't have many people on the dance floor the entire night unfortunately. We added the karaoke package and the screen malfunctioned periodically throughout the night. The biggest problem was that when the dj would address the crowd no one could understand him at all as it always sounded garbled/jumbled together. Also, during the ceremony the dj did not make a smooth transition between the bridal party/groom entrance song to my entrance. The songs literally stopped abruptly instead of just fading into one another.

Honestly this service was probably the one thing that I was a little disappointed with on our wedding day. I would only recommend them with the stipulations that they make sure to pick/get the best dj that suits them the best and if they have add ons make sure that they are getting what they pay for.

We hired TKO pretty early on based on positive reviews. They answer your emails, will meet with you a few weeks beforehand to go over music and what you want in a DJ, etc. They will even contact your venue to work out a timeline. The only thing I do wish is that they let you meet with the potential DJ's. I understand I don't remember him because I was busy with being a bride and all, but, I cannot remember one single thing about our DJ that night and neither can my husband. So I would rate them as reliable and kind of in the middle. They didn't make or break my reception, but I do wish he had been more lively.

I feel as though I should be writing two different reviews: one for the owner Matthew and our particular DJ Donald, and the other for the staff who run the place day to day.

To begin with, we wanted very specific genres of music played at our event, and because most of it isn't widely available, we provided ALL the music ourselves. All they had to do was mix the songs, and play them. Sounds easy enough, right?

We started meeting with them months before the wedding. The staff, and the original DJ assigned to us, seemed on board. They would listen to the music WE provided, mix them, and we'd have a subsequent meeting. But several months afterwards, it turned out they'd done none of the work. Long story short, we threatened to cancel our contract.

And then the owner, Matthew, stepped in. He apologized profusely, and told us he'd do anything to retain our business. He even went as offering to absorb the cost of us flying in OUR OWN DJ from back home. He then called up our eventual DJ Donald, whom we first met with one week prior to our wedding. Donald went out of his way to meet with us several times that week, and did everything he could to make sure he was providing us EXACTLY what we wanted.

In the end, our wedding was wonderful, thanks to Matthew and Donald.

We used TKO as our wedding DJ. I wasn't completely satisfied for several reasons.
There were quite a few "dead air" moments, and the music didn't seem to flow very well. Even though I had a requested list/genre for dinner music, that list was not played.
Also, they forgot the lights we had requested for backdrop lighting.
Other than that, they were very professional and affordable.
I would recommend being very specific about what you want.

Wedding Wire User,

We would love to speak with you about when your wedding date was, who the DJ was, and why you weren't completely satisfied. We have a multi layered system that makes sure that all equipment goes out every time, and that if something is left, a back up DJ or the manager on duty can bring it directly to the event. Can you call our office, and give us more details about your wedding?

Our initial visit with the TKO front office was terrific. The woman who met with us was great. Marlon was a bit difficult, however, when we provided him with specific songs we suggested be played. I think he was offended that we were trying to run the show, but we were simply asking his advice on the best way to work "our" songs into the mix. In fact, if my husband hadn't already paid in full, we would have dropped him the week before the wedding because of his attitude and demeanor with us multiple times on the phone. Thank goodness he wasn't our DJ. Michael was our DJ and he was phenomenal. We danced all night and it was a blast. He stayed an extra hour, too.

TKO was a wonderful DJ to work with. Before hand we were sent home with a book of songs and a worksheet to help is decide the ambience we wanted for our reception.
Everything was wonderful until the reception started. Our DJ ignored my request for a song, even though I was the BRIDE. The DJ was periodically missing when we needed dances and tosses announced. I was underwhelmed and very disappointed in how our evening went.
Despite the bad, everyone enjoyed themselves and the night was grand. I would have liked our DJ to be more attentive and professional.

Overall, we would recommend TKOs for a DJ service. They employ so many DJs that you can really get what you want for your reception. We were so afraid of having a DJ that would overpower the reception. After a meeting with TFO, we were assured this would not be the case. Our DJ was wonderful. He did just as we asked and played the variety of music we wanted to get our guests dancing. He even announced the score of the MU/KU game when requested by the bride or groom. The challenges with TKO was trying to set up a meeting. They were challenging to get ahold of and rather than coming to us on the dates they said they would, we had to contact them to set up the appropriate meetings. We booked late, so that might have had something to do with it, but it was frustrating having to remind TKOs that they were supposed to be contacting us.

As a DJ, TKO did a great job.
As a WEDDING SERVICE provider, not pleased AT ALL. I am still heartbroken about the fact that they TOTALLY missed our cake cutting song. The song was one we couldn't decide if it should be our first dance or not, so obviously it was INCREDIBLY important that it be played at our cake cutting. Nope, he played "Irresistible." I immediately ran over to him, after we were done, and he said there wasn't anything written down for that. WTF? First of all, then THEY forgot to grab it, because I definitely emailed Chris about the song, and how important it was.and, um... THEN ASK ME WHEN YOU GET THERE - "Hey, there's nothing here about a cake cutting song... any suggestions?" How careless, with such an important day.
We also had requested they play a song that my husband and his friends all love, they get together and sing it together every time it comes on. Hubs went to request it and the guy said he didn't have it. A)Holy ball drop, and B)Frankly, that's BS. It'(wa)s 2011. There is NO REASON, in this day and age, that a DJ company shouldn't have wireless access and be able to download a song on demand.
He did do a great job keeping the party jumping, so I definitely can't complain about that.

If I could give no stars, I would. My initial meeting with TKO was great! However when it came to our wedding reception, our DJ, Marcus was horrible. Not only did he play the wrong songs for our special moments such as our announcement as Mr. & Mrs., and our cake cutting, he also not once apologized for his mistakes.

This company was a horrible mistake for our wedding reception. Please do not make the same mistake as we did for such an important moment.
