I went around and around with different DJ options. I felt that many in my price range were too cheesy, too sketchy or completely impersonal (you didn't know who you were going to get the day of).

We had a need for a "mix tape" for the Father Daughter dance and Mario knocked it out of the park! He even got it to us months ahead of the reception so they had time to practice! When it came to the day of the reception, the vendor we were least concerned about was Mario and Tim. They showed up exactly on time, dressed to impress and were absolutely on point with the music, timing and voiceovers. They were even flexible with us as we pushed the schedule around on the fly. I wouldn't hesitate to hire them again for ANY event -- They were simply fantastic!

If you want it done right, DJ’s For Hire KC should be your only stop! We met with Mario and immediately knew our DJ search was over.

From our very first meeting we briefly discussed music selection, and Mario knew exactly what we wanted. I wanted to mash 2 very different songs together for the Father/Daughter dance. Within hours of emailing him, he had created the perfect mix! As the big day approached, Mario helped me create the reception’s itinerary with all the necessary details. DJ’s for Hire played the perfect mix of slow/fast songs and never strayed from our requested genre selection. Mario was in charge of the mic and knew exactly when he needed to direct our guests and never made it about their performance. DJ's for Hire went above and beyond our expectations, creating not only a magical night, but an evening that flowed beautifully; a night our guests still rave about. Mario and Tim, thank you so much for making our day better than we ever dreamed. DJ’s For Hire KC = A++

I recommend Mario and Tim because they are classy, experienced, affordable, and know how to set the tone with the right music. We interviewed 4 other DJs before we found Mario and Tim, and we were immediately comfortable with them. I believe the DJ is the most important element... Read More to your reception - the music can either make for great dancing and memories, or groans from guests and buzz kills. We chose wisely with DJs for hire. We were looking for DJs that were professional with trustworthy music tastes and didn't cost and arm and leg. They had a professional presence and wouldn't try to make themselves the star of the show like some other DJs do. They kept the reception flowing and naturally announced the cake cutting, first dance, etc. I've also been to over 10 weddings in the past year, so I didn't want to hear typical wedding songs and had a do-not-play list a mile long. Tim and Mario are very accommodating to make the wedding YOUR day. They even cut a custom first dance song for us, as we wanted a mashup of two songs. Also, they have an innate ability to read the vibe of the party to keep the dancing going. Everyone had a blast and still talks about how great the dancing was at our wedding! They are very responsive and organized, as well as the most affordable DJ I found in town and trusted! I HIGHLY recommend!

Good thing they don't do just weddings- we will be using them in the future for any event for which we need a DJ!
