Our experience with DJ Mike Watkins was phenomenal! He tapped right into what my husband and I wanted to hear. We had so much fun adding songs to a spotify playlist during the months leading up to the wedding. Then, we simply shared the playlist with him when the time came. My... Read More husband and I knew the DJ set the tone for the whole wedding - Mike did not disappoint., in fact we could owe the smoothness and great energy directly to him. Be clear with the style you want in a DJ (ceremony and reception for us) and you will not be disappointed. Mike rocked it!

From the initial meeting until the end of the night, Elite Sounds was ON IT. They made everything so easy by being responsive, and their system even helped keep me organized with other vendors and the wedding party. Todd was fantastic and kept everything running smoothly...

I highly recommend and if I had to do it all over, I'd book them again and again.

This is the MOB. My daughter and her fiancee met with Craig. I had never met with the DJ or Craig so was a little nervous when our daughter said they play music like the clubs with short versions of songs. I pictured heart thumping techno music. WRONG! DJ Kenny was... Read More phenomenal. I didn't want to leave the dance floor. Yes he plays the greatest parts of dance songs and really listened to what the bride and groom wanted and not necessarily what the guests were requesting. Let's face it, some people think they request the best songs when they start drinking...not. My feet and the feet of my friends were sore for a minimum of 3 days! Rocked it Kenny!

When planning our wedding, my fiance and I were adamant that we had the perfect DJ because we both love to dance! Not only did we get the perfect DJ, but we also decided to delay our wedding exit because the dance floor was way too much fun! We worked with Craig and DJ Kenny!... Read More DJ Kenny was awesome! We received many positive comments about DJ Kenny from our wedding guests. He kept the reception flowing smoothly and on-time. We also rented the photo booth from Elite Sounds which was a huge hit! The two people that were in charge of the photo booth were incredibly friendly and patient with our guests! Overall, we had an amazing wedding and Elite Sounds (especially DJ Kenny) made it the perfect party!!

Elite Sounds was wonderful to work with! Craig Loftis and DJ Tim Yach were both incredibly professional, competent, and friendly.

We highly recommend Tim Yach, Craig Loftis and Elite Entertainment! From start to finish, the process was seamless and extremely professional. We were planning our wedding from out-of-town (KC is my hometown), and they were super easy to work with via email and phone. We worked... Read More with Craig to get things setup (we opted for a package with DJ service and uplighting). Craig got us setup with an online portal that was very helpful (it allows you to input the songs you would like played). The online portal was extremely helpful in that it also organizes the music for your wedding and reception. They even walked us through the parts we weren't familiar with (you can attend a dozen weddings and still not realize there's a different song for the wedding party vs. the bride and her dad walking down the aisle, or a special song for the cake cutting). Not only is the portal good for organizing things, but it also links to the songs to preview them and shows popular songs to make things easy! They even schedule a call a week beforehand, which was nice, just to go over everything (we had a few minor updates).In addition, Tim and Craig were so thorough that they even asked me to pick the range of colors for our uplighting (I sent over a Pantone color chart)...wow, talk about attention to detail (didn't even have to ask)! At the wedding itself, Tim was extremely professional. Our friend was our officiant, and Tim outfitted him with a wireless mic and also setup outdoors for our ceremony. At the reception, Tim made sure people were up and dancing. My husband and I aren't exactly pop enthusiasts, but Tim made sure to ask us the right questions ahead of time to make sure our tastes were met, while at the same time, ensuring our guests would be having fun and on the dance floor! I would recommend Elite Entertainment in a heartbeat!

Elite Sounds was GREAT to work with. When we initially spoke with Craig, he answered all of my questions and told me exactly what I was hoping to hear...all without me asking. Elite Sounds was exactly the style of DJ we were looking for. We had Tim DJ the night of our wedding.... Read More His music choice was perfect and very "us." He transitioned the songs so well to go with the flow of the party and incorporated such a mix of today's hits with the Indie and Eclectic music we love. He pretty much ran the show since our ceremony and reception was in the same location. We couldn't have pulled the wedding off without him!I highly recommend using Elite Sounds. You won't regret it!

Excellent service, great execution! I had the pleasure of working with Elite for my wedding a month ago. My DJ was Todd. I have nothing but great things to say about Todd and Craig. They are so profession and did everything to accommodate my wedding set up to make the day flow... Read More flawlessly. Todd was even able to accommodate a same day wedding song change for me without hesitation! If there was an issue, I had no idea. I later learn some family and guests may have cornered Todd to express feelings of this, that, and the other. When I tell you he handled them like a pro, I'm serious. I had no idea until wayyy later. Everything was great for my wedding. I highly recommend Elite for your wedding experience.

One word... Incredible!!! We highly recommend Elite Sounds for you professional DJ services. Our first meeting with Craig offered us insight into understanding the level of service they provide. They are more than just a warm body with preset playlist, microphone and mirror... Read More ball. We connected on many levels. From age, humor, recognition of how tempo influences our guest to gather on the dance floor. Knowing that Elite Sounds was partnered up with The Foundations Event Space's as their in-house DJ Company, they were knew exactly what was entailed with lighting and sound. This is a sense of comfort to a Bride and Groom to know they have professionals operating equipment what can be a stressful day. My wife gave me one task.... 'Find a DJ Company!' We could not of been more happy with our decision. Craig assigned Tim Gibson to our ceremony and after our second meeting we instantly connect. At that time I'm a sense of relief, and we were 3 weeks out from our wedding day! Our taste in music, understanding our guests and keeping tempo was our objectives. We requested all genres of music from Motown, 60's, 70's, Funk, Pop, Country, R&B, 90's Rap, 80's and modern day Dance Hits. Knowing that we would all ages at our reception our focus was how each person could connect a moment with a melody to create a memory. Wow, and did Tim do that! Grandparents cutting the rug with grandchildren with hits from their youthful days created fun filled energy throughout the room and venue. The early evening toe tapping became a four hour hip shaking dance party. Yes, I said 4 hours!!! Our guest rave about their experience with Tim, and how he connected with each one of them. The energy was so wonderful that we had 8 separate attempts of wedding crashers! Most crashers understandably would want a free drink, but they came to dance because they felt the energy in the room. Without Tim's level of experience, timing, understanding of tempo and flow from each age of guest on the dance floor... we would not of had the reception of a lifetime. Many guests were amazed at the song selection, how songs were mixed, (of which flooded memories from yester- years), the progression of how beat and that there was no low moments. He captured an audience that night, of which none wanted to leave or for it to end! We had one individual at our venue that hadn't danced within the past 5 years, and Tim was able to get both a slow and fast dance out of those penny loafers. Jen and I can't say enough great things about Elite Sounds, Craig and Tim. Don't go with just any DJ on the open market. Please read through each one of there review and you will see that your receiving an expert level service that you searching for. These are professionals that create memories of a lifetime thru music, energy and movement. Tim thank you again to allowing us to cherish this moment with wonderful memories.

Craig was friendly and professional and was able to understand what I was looking for with my music when I hadn't... Read More been entirely sure myself. Mickey, the DJ Craig paired us with for the day, was great. We chose some songs we thought might be good for our crowd and Mickey was able to take our suggestions and really build on them. He read the guests at our wedding perfectly and knew what to play to keep them all dancing throughout the night (and my friends are not the typical dancing crowd). The entire process is easy, even for someone who isn't sure what they're doing, and when you have a million things you're trying to manage all in one day, not having to worry about what's going on with you're music is totally invaluable. I recommend both Elite Sounds and our specific DJ, Mickey highly.
