Do not hesitate to use this DJ for your wedding. Off the many decisions the parents of the bride had to make for our daughter's wedding this was by far one of the best. This gentleman really knows how work a crowd. His timing was perfect. He began with background music as we ate and socialized and gradually amped it up as the party continued. Pretty soon the room was rocking and the dance floor was crowded the rest of the evening. He has earned all the stellar reviews he has received. Skip the live band. This guy knows how to create a magical evening.
We were so impressed with SureFire Entertainments DJ service!! I would definitely recommend him to anyone who wants to have a fun, exciting, and professional DJ at their next event! He played our recommendations and also paid close attention to what our guests were enjoying, which was very important to us. We thought he was very professional and did a great job!
Thank you SO much for responding so quickly to our request. Thank you for helping us with the video at the dinner and reception. Thank you for being our fun DJ at reception. We all had a wonderful and fun time together!
Jim was an amazing DJ and a very sweet man. I highly recommend him. He was very helpful and knowledgable about everything that his job entails and more.
Jim did a great job with our reception music. He kept everyone on the floor dancing all night long. The best value was in the planning process where Jim assessed my husband and my taste in music and helped us pick songs for all the traditional activities.
Very professional and well-organized! Sure fire is a great company to do business with and Jim makes the night go so smoothly. I wish we had had more time to hear more music! I didn't want the night to end!

Thank you Kamerin! It was an honor to be part of your Special Day. Your family and friends were so much fun at the reception. Thanks for the referrals, and best wishes to you & AJ!
I was not at all pleased with the DJ service that Sure-fire Entertainment had to offer me. I was assured that I would get to listen to the music that I wanted without any problem. While the specific songs chosen for cake cutting, first dance, etc. were correct, I gave the DJ a MUST PLAY list and heard NONE of the songs. Also, I didn't know I was highering a reception planner in this process either. You're a DJ. It is not your place to tell me how my night should flow and at what pace. Our parents missed our enterence, first dance, and cake cutting because he did not listen when I said I wanted time to talk to people in between. Also, the DJ had no right to tell me when to play my last song! Neither us or our guests were ready to go. We still had 1.5 hours left. I asked him to play a few songs so we can go take a final picture, and all he said was, 'sorry, it's already playing.' That was not my problem. A professional would fade it out and play another song. I told him we were not ready to go. Because of him we didnt get to have a final dance nor exit to the song we wanted to. He needs to learn his place! I regret wasting my money on him and strongly advise others not to do the same! For the ridiculous amount I paid, this so called 'DJ' service needed to do what I said. Not what he wanted. Last, It is also very inappropriate to bring your children with you. Sorry, but I paid to feed you, not them.

If you would like to evaluate further, I welcome the opportunity to review with you the chronological order for the reception and the evening's playlist. I appreciate your feedback.

Thank you Tasha! It was an honor to be part of your Special Day, and... had a blast with your family and friends at the reception. Best wishes to you, Jonathan and Jaxson Riley!
Our experience with Sure-Fire Entertainment could not have been any better! Our ceremony and reception music was perfect! We loved that Jim had such a large selection of music to choose from and had great suggestions when we weren't sure. Jim is very personable, professional and caring. We could not have chosen a better person to share our day with!

It was awesome to be a part of your wedding day Kaylan. You guys did some great dancing at the reception! Peace & blessings to you & Austin. Stay in touch!
Jim with Sure-Fire Entertainment is a great DJ! He knows exactly when to wear the hat of "MC" and when to just let his great music selection take over. Working as a wedding planner, I really get to know the Bride's taste's and styles, I know that the bride (and groom) both had a blast dancing to all THEIR favorite tunes- Great Job Sure-Fire!
Your wedding day will be one of the most memorable days of your life. As a result, it is of utmost importance that your wedding events go as smoothly as possible.
The Sure☼Fire Difference: The Knowledge and Experience to Make Your Wedding
The One That You, Your Family, and Guests Will Never Forget.
- Detailed Pre-Planning & Event Coordination
- Professional Quality Sound & Lighting
- Superior Music Programming
- Customized Timeline
- Reasonable Rates
- Family Friendly, Elegant and Fun!
With someone of my experience, you will be able to rest assured that the music and order of events at your ceremony and reception will go exactly as planned.
You are NOT just hiring me to play music for 3 to 4 hours. In addition to the actual event you have hired me for, I also spend many hours meeting and consulting with you, helping you create your ceremony order and the timeline for your reception. I spend time fine-tuning all the details, researching and obtaining your special music requests, preparing customized CDs containing sequenced music for special moments like your Grand Entrance, visiting the site of your reception in advance, and arriving at the event early to set up. Typically, I devote 12 HOURS OR MORE to your wedding.
That is entirely up to you. But keep in mind that I usually get booked many months (sometimes a year or more) in advance for the busiest months (April through October) and for Saturdays in any month. You can always find a DJ on short notice. But if you care about getting the RIGHT DJ, plan ahead!
What’s the advantage of working with a DJ who specializes in weddings?
A wedding ceremony and reception are a very special type of event. It is not just a party; it is one of the most important, most memorable days of your life. You don’t want anything to go wrong. It requires advance planning, attention to details, and behind-the-scenes coordination to make things go right. An experienced wedding specialist like me provides that – and the peace of mind that goes with it.
Even the entertainment at a wedding is different. You want music that your friends will enjoy and dance to, but you don’t want your older relatives to feel excluded. A wedding specialist like me knows how to mix the music so that everyone from your college roommate to your grandmother has a great time.
Is your company insured?
Yes, my company carries $1,000,000 commercial general liability insurance tailored to protect mobile DJ companies and their clients.
Do we sign a contract?
Absolutely, your contract is straightforward and written in plain English so that you can understand the terms before signing. It is signed by both parties and offers you a high level of protection and dependability. With the contract you can be assured that there will be no hidden extra charges or surprises at your event. The signed contract and deposit officially reserves your date and of course an executed copy will be sent to you for your records. If you have any questions or concerns about the terms, just ask!
What is the deposit and when is final payment due?
I require a $350 deposit and signed contract to reserve the date. The final payment of the remaining balance is due 30 days prior to your event date. I will gladly accept your cash, check, or money order. Once the music is paid for, that's one less you will have to think about before your event.
A signed contract is not indicative of a guaranteed date. It must be accompanied by a $350 deposit to hold your date and guarantee service. Contracts and deposits are accepted and considered executed on a first-received, first executed basis.
The Sure☼Fire Difference
I am committed to alleviating all the stress of a wedding day for the Bride and the families involved by customizing all of the wedding ceremonies and receptions I work to the particular client's needs. Together, we pre-plan the music choices, reception flow, and any other needs in advance.
I am dedicated to ensuring that your wedding day is as memorable as it should be and will do whatever it takes (within reason) to assure you the High-Quality Entertainment you pay for without sacrificing the elegance of this milestone day.
The Bride and Groom are the center of attention at my wedding receptions; NOT Sure☼Fire Entertainment or myself. I do NOT make a spectacle of myself, I will not sound like a Game Show Host, nor will I act Tacky, Cheesy, or……. (use your favorite adjective here), or have the need to force grandma or shy guests out onto the dance floor. People have unique ways of enjoying themselves and my DJ Services recognize that.
The Wedding Receptions I do range from strictly social affairs with gentle background music to high-energy all-night dance parties. It's all a matter of taste and style, YOUR taste and style.
I realize you want your Wedding to be perfect, elegant, unique, fun and memorable. Make your celebration all of these things by choosing Sure☼Fire Entertainment.
