I contracted Universal MCs & DJs to DJ and MC my wedding and I want to start off by saying that they were amazing!!! They had my guests (young to old) and I on the dance floor all day long which shows that they were really in tune with the crowd. Universal MC & DJs made every little event of the reception so much fun. Whether it was the music, our entrance, garter removal, garter toss, bouquet toss or floral arrangement giveaway, they put a special spin on everything which kept my guests entertained. They really exceeded my expectations from the wedding ceremony till the end of the reception. My husband and I are still receiving so many compliments on the great music and fun wedding, which should all be credited to Universal MC & DJ (DJ Sureshot & MC Marco).

In addition to the music and entertainment of the wedding, DJ Sure Shot was very professional, courteous and always assisted me with any questions or concerns I had. He made the process of planning the entertainment portion of my wedding very seamless. I will absolutely will be using them again in the future.

Absolutely hands down the best vendor we had dealt with. He played to the crowd in a way that is impossible to describe. If anyone asks me, going forward, if we would recommend a dj, I would recommend without a moments hesitation. Thank you very much for being a part of our celebration!

I had a very good experience with this vendor. Shawn was very responsive to my e-mails and answered my questions promptly the entire time leading up to the wedding. He was also very professional and helped us when we needed some equipment for the ceremony. Shawn was very flexible and added some last minute requests. He also had a good feel for when to play different song on my playlist. The MC was really fantastic. He got the crowd going and spontaneously organized group dances, which worked out really well for the crowd. I'm not really into group dances like the electric slide, but he organized something I found to be fun and not cheesy. The MC even did some break dancing, which was an added crowd pleaser.

Shawn was amazing!!! We had such a great time at the wedding and every guest was up and dancing, all 220 of them :) He was so nice throughout the whole planning process. Two of my friends at my wedding already called him to set him up as the dj at their weddings. You will not be disappointed!

I highly recommend Shawn Keitt and Universal DJs. They worked so well to meet our needs. Until this dya people are still asking me about our DJ and their rates. We cam to Shaw with a ton of international songs and he miraculously supplied us with them all. He has a phenomenal lighting system that sets the atmosphere and matches your color theme. He set up his system effortlessly and quickly. His prices are very reasonable. I trusted him with my style of music and he absolutely delivered. He was kind to those who came up for music requests. Please please call Universal Mcs to see if they're a good fit for you. I will definitely have him at our next function and the next wedding i decide to plan for a loved one.

Universal MC's & DJ's were hired one year for a Christmas party at my job. I thought the DJ was so great that I asked him to DJ at my wedding. They were very professional and worked with my husband and me to make sure we were happy and all of our needs were met. They played all the songs on our playlist and really got the crowd going....making it a night to remember! I strongly recommend this company. Whenever I have another event I will be sure to call them : )

Thanks Universal MC's & DJ's!!!!

Both the DJ and MC were excellent! The MC arrived late, but these things happen and once he arrived he did a great job. Our wedding guests raved about the quality and attentiveness of the entertainment. Sean had a good musical selection and paid attention to the crowd to make sure that everyone was enjoying the music. The MC really got the crowd going and enticed everyone (young and old) to get up and dance, which they did. Since our wedding, we've had several guests request Universal's contact info to play at their events. We highly recommend their services.
