I am not one to typically write reviews, but as i was planning my wedding i relied SO heavily on the reviews of others, I knew i needed to help out brides who are in the same position i was. Picking a DJ was one of the hardest decisions for me to make. With a photographer, you can view their albums. With a florist, you can see sample bouquets/centerpieces. How can you "sample" a DJ? Well, I am here to tell you we went with a gut instinct and great reviews when choosing TKO. They were absolutely incredible. What i liked best about working with Ted was his confidence. He made me feel at ease that he knew the venue, could read the audience, and would not play any weird line dances unless i requested them. He was laid back yet professional. TKO did an amazing job on my wedding night, I never once left the dance floor. Do yourself a favor and stop your search - call TKO!!!

I was totally satisfied and a happy bride when all was said and done! Was a bit worried about them having enough space to work with at the reception but Ted set my mind at ease by promptly e-mailing me a layout he designed which worked perfectly. The music choices during everything were perfect, people were dancing to every song! The light show was MAGICAL, it was so cool to see the barn lit up. These guys are not just a table and a laptop, they bring their A-game! Our DJ was John I., he was friendly, professional, courteous and made sure to check in on both myself and my new husband a few times during the evening to see if everything was to our satisfaction. I would use them again in a heartbeat. Thank you soooo much!!

When I did my research for DJ's about 18 months prior to my wedding date, I looked online and had some sketchy people contact me that couldn't even spell my name correctly. They all looked like self-made DJ's and were undercharging by so much, that it seemed suspicious. I was recommended TKO by a friend of mine who recently got married and she told me that her guests couldn't stop raving about her DJ and they kept dancing all night long. I knew that if I wanted a quality night, I needed a DJ that could be the MC and could keep everything organized.

When I met with TKO I was taken away by their professionalism, their years of experience, as well as the actual quality of the equipment. They definitely didn't look like your high school boyfriend with a laptop on a fold-out table. Their sound systems were solid, took up the entire front of the stage, with clean sound that didn't echo throughout the entire room or resonate weirdly. They were even able to demonstrate the dance experience for me by turning their demo room into a club-like atmosphere and showing me what the music would sound like with the appropriate transitions, the fog, and the dance lights!

I booked them!

The day of my wedding was amazing. I had Bob, who took care of everything, lined up the wedding party, took control of the day's events ( which get so hectic) and put me at ease. He made sure we had a great flow of events, and was extremely professional and organized. He took all the requests and kept the guests dancing through midnight! (we started at 6 pm!!) He really had control of the crowd and he kept us all laughing! He was very outgoing, funny, and not cheesy at all! ( which is very important)
I wouldn't pick anyone else!
The bottom line is, you get what you pay for. If someone seems too cheap, or sketchy, then their service probably is. Choosing TKO to DJ my wedding was the best decision ever.

Our TKO DJ, Bob, did an absolutely amazing job. The folks at TKO were always responsive to emails when I had questions and made sure they were on the ball for everything for our wedding reception. They did a great job keeping everything on schedule and keeping the energy up. The music choices were great and kept everyone out on the dance floor from the first dance all the way until our reception ended at midnight! They really did a great job and I would recommend their services to anyone looking for a great DJ with great energy.

They were very accommodating and even made a complete personalized mix for the big day of all the songs we really wanted. They were thorough and cared about what you liked and what you did not like; I has to fill out detailed forms which we carefully reviewed together. They made me feel reassured about their quality of work and their professionalism (no cheesiness).
The DJ we had at our reception was excellent. He was extremely nice and took charge when it was time to line the bridal party up to be announced. He remained professional the whole time and even came up to me throughout the night asking me how it was going and was there anything not played that I really wanted to hear. That stood out to me and I really appreciated their efforts and authenticity!

These guys are awesome! I have been in touch with Ted since about 13 months before the wedding. From the start I felt very comfortable with him! He is very down to earth, friendly, organized and great with getting back to me about anything and everything! He was so patient with me and my fiancé (at the time) and our specific wants! He was willing to have a conversation to put me at ease about what to expect! This really helped me feel better! You could not ask for better DJs! And although they may seem a little pricey they are more than worth it! They are great at entertaining, are wonderful with setting the pace and tone of the reception, and the quality of the music they use is amazing! My brother and best friend used them for their weddings and a family friend used them for her son's bar mitzvah before me, and I was impressed each time! So happy with all they did for me and my husband and our families to make our special day perfect!

Literally AMAZING! Ted and his crew are the best in the business! I work at a bridal shop so I know many different vendors, and literally no one comes close to comparing to them. Ted was so helpful with everything! He provided the best music, an awesome light show, and beautiful uplighting, and even a lighted name monogram! We continue to receive the highest compliments from all of our guests about our wedding, and TKO plays a huge role in that! Our guests danced the entire night! One of my best friends used TKO for her wedding in September, and we had the time of our lives. Any event that I have been to that TKO has done has literally been so much fun. I have already highly recommended them to any bride that has walked into my store, and to ALL of my friends! I could probably write a book on here about how impressed my husband and I are with Ted and his business :) Your wedding will not be complete unless TKO is there! :) I wish I could give you guys a million stars!! Thank you for EVERYTHING :)

I was nervous at first when I was not going to have Ted (the head DJ) on my wedding day, I had John and he was phenominal! He did everything I asked and more! Even handled some of my not so friendly intoxicated guests very professionaly. I would reccomed TKO to any bride who's main focus is to have a good time with their guests and dance the night away!

We were not disappointed. TKO lived up to all of the awesome reviews we had read. Ted was great to work with during the planning phase. Jim and Scott were great the night of the wedding. They kept people on the dance floor without being obnoxious about it.
We had requested a lot of a certain musician to be played during the cocktail and dinner hour and that's exactly what they did. Then later in the evening we had a special surprise planned for my grandparents, except as we were announcing it, my grandparents were no where to be found. Jim and Scott played it off like it was no big deal, quickly switched to some dance music to distract everyone and tactfully did the whole thing over a few songs later. I am very thankful that we hired TKO as our DJ service and would gladly recommend them to anyone.

His brother was our DJ and we couldn't have had anyone better. The dance floor was packed all night and they really provided a great music variety to keep everyone happy and having an aweseome time. The guests even chanted for them not to wrap up the night because they were having so much fun. We would definately recommend them to anyone.

As parents of the bride my husband and I wanted all aspects of the wedding to go off without a hitch. We (parents AND bridal couple) wanted everyone to have a marvelous time and dance the night away. It all happened seamlessly! TKO arranged a novel entry for the large bridal party at the request of the bride and groom, created a special arrangement for the bride and her father AND played everything from requested Irish dancing music to current hits! Every time I looked at the dance floor it was packed! They calmed worries and handled everyone who approached them in a professional manner. My advice to brides and grooms and their parents... HIRE THEM!

Our wedding was amazing in no small part thanks to Ted and TKO Entertainment. At first my wife and I were reluctant to hire a DJ at all since we had both been to so many weddings where the DJ was cheesy and played the same tired old wedding songs, but we were referred to Ted through some friends of ours and he made us feel instantly comfortable. We gave him a list of songs we wanted and a bigger list of stuff we didn't want and they did an amazing job of accommodating us. The DJ's were professional and friendly and really paid attention to all the small details. They were excellent at reading the mood of the room and adjusting the music on the fly to keep people engaged, and their light and sound system were top notch too. Our wedding was a month ago and we are still getting compliments about it. We all had a wonderful time and much of that is due to the all-around professionalism of TKO. A DJ really can make or break a wedding reception and in retrospect we feel so lucky to have discovered them. I can't overstate that enough and it was truly a bargain.

Our DJ was incredible for our wedding. Kept the entire dance floor full and played everything we wanted and was very flexible with what we wanted. He made sure that we were happy and that was his main concern. I would highly recommend them to anyone who asked. Thanks again

Great to work with, put up with my crazy singing Grandpa, and did not think I was crazy for wanting "No Requests". Stuck to the playlist, and I was not disappointed. There were two small snags, the first being when the DJ (not Ted) asked ME for the payment, when I made it clear that the Best Man would be taking care of it. Asking the bride for money is a huge no no in my opinion, and they should be well aware of that. Second, they messed up the timing of our first dance song, which we had taken lessons for, so it was timed to a tee. I told them at exactley what time to start the song, and for some reason it started in the middle of the first verse and almost ruined months worth of lessons. Luckily my husband was determined to pull it off, and we figured out the dance, so it was no big deal. All in all, I would recommend them again, I just wish I would have gotten Ted as my DJ.

Leigh-
Thank you once again for using us. I am so glad the dance floor was still packed at the end of the night and that everyone had a great time. Your grandfather was so excited about the karaoke songs that we found for him to sing to. It was no problem working with hime and making him happy.
In regards to the two other small snags; first, our contract clearly states that the balance is due well before the night of the event. Part of the reason is so our DJs are not put in the awkward position of having to ask for payment the night of. We were never told in advance that the best man would have the balance, or we would have asked him for it. Also, the first dance song was cued up to the exact second that we talked about. After some research, I found that there are actually 2 versions of the song - one shorter than the other. I am glad that the dance still worked out. Not sure why you think that I (ted) would have done anything different. I would have had the same exact details that Jordan had that night. Jordan and his assistant actually had their hands full all night with a plethora of guest requests and even acted as bouncers throughout the night trying to keep the dancers from banging into and knocking over our equipement. So kudos to them for going above and beyond in a challenging situation.

The TKO team did a fantastic job of coordinating all the music at our wedding. They had a lot of song suggestion sheets for us to look through when trying to find the perfect song for each event at the reception, and gave us tons of opportunity to tell them exactly what music we did (and did NOT) want played at our reception. Most importantly, they really set the tone for the reception by picking different music for the dinner, special dances, and partying aspects of the evening. They were friendly and outgoing enough to get everyone on the dance floor, and, most importantly didn't have that loud, overbearing feel of many DJs I've seen at other weddings. They made our event classy, fun, and the best party of the year.

TKO was great. They have you set up a playlist before the wedding, with a list of DO NOT PLAYS!! This was very important to my husband and I, because we are very picky about our music. They were a lot of fun, and even stayed an extra hour for us to keep the party going!!

Highly recommend TKO!!! We have been to many weddings and school functions that featured TKO for music needs, and we knew immediately that we would hire them for our wedding. TKO is a professional entertainment business that took all of the elements we provided/incorporated into our reception and carried them out as we specified! TKO played the music we requested and did not play the music we did not want. We really felt as though it was OUR night because TKO helped shape it to be so.

Sorry you didn't like the music at the beginning of the night, we always try to please the older adults at the start and then play the newer music as the night goes on! Glad you enjoyed it. Thanks again, Ted
