Our first interaction with Elite Sounds was with the owner Craig. From that meeting we were confident we would be in good hands. He was super down to earth, and we were excited to work with his company. Mickey was our DJ for our wedding reception at River Market Event Place, and he was awesome! From the initial meeting to the final result. When we met with him he really seemed to understand the vibe and kind of event we were throwing, and communicated effectively with us! What a great company, and a great DJ! We were very pleased with the service, as were our wedding guests! Our reception was such a blast, thanks to Elite Sounds.
We are a wedding venue, but I want to share our experience with Elite with as many couples as I can. After many years of searching for a DJ company to be in-house at our venue, we found Elite to be the most reliable and consistently professional company in Kansas City. For the past three years, we have had them as our in-house entertainment for couples and couldn't be more happy with how they have treated our clients. We enlisted Mickey (one of the Elite DJs) to be the Elite go-to contact for our client's events and he has gone above and beyond to create schedules and add memorable and unique elements in any way he can. Our clients share with us an overwhelming appreciation for his expertise and professionalism in handling the details of music at their event. Elite Sounds has been a wonderful business to work with and I wholeheartedly encourage you to consider them for your event.
Mickey did an outstanding job as the DJ for our wedding!! My husband and I cannot thank him enough for curating the perfect sound track for our special day. If you need a DJ, look no further - Elite Sounds is absolutely the answer! We were recommended Elite Sounds by our venue and were blown away by their amazing service. From my initial call with Craig, I knew they would be the best pick for us. Craig eased any nerves I had about booking a DJ from out of town without really 'meeting' and after our coordination call with Mickey - I had no worries that our day would be fabulous. Mickey was so helpful when it came to song selection for specific dances and Elite Sounds' client portal is super helpful, as well. I loved having the ability to send a link to our friends and family for requests ahead of time! Throughout the process, Mickey was extremely responsive and helped plan our reception down to the minute, which was super helpful when organizing my other vendors. He knew the venue, made special accommodations per our unique day-of requests without hesitation, and kept the energy up all night! My husband and I were on the dance floor the entire time and everyone had a blast. Thank you to Elite Sounds, and most importantly, Mickey! Our day was everything I had hoped for!
My wife and I were extremely satisfied! Everyone at the reception had a great time and it was in large part thanks to Mickey!
I was very impressed by Mickey and the entire Elite sound team. They had resources, gave us their time to prepare for the big day, and were flexible to adapt on the fly the day of my wedding. When discussing what they offer they were honest, upfront, and made the decision making process painless. I Would recommend them to anyone in the KC area in a heartbeat!
I'd give more than five stars if I could. Our guests had such a blast on the dance floor. Elite Sounds was great to work with throughout the planning process, and our DJ, Todd, really delivered. He was fun and professional at the same time, and I'd definitely book them for future events.
Tim from Elite Sounds did an incredible job with the playlist. From our initial consultation to the day of our wedding - we were confident in the process and in the preparation. The up-lighting was a nice touch to our venue as well. Make sure to ask for Tim. Elite Sounds for the win!
I would very highly recommend Todd from Elite sounds as the DJ for any wedding! He was absolutely incredible and far surpassed my expectations! He had our guests dancing all the way out the door! His flow for the night was flawless and I loved how he met with me beforehand and then touched base with me multiple times to ensure everything was perfect. Our reception wouldn’t have been the same without Todd! He is truly the best!
Elite Sounds is amazing! I would recommend them to anyone! We met with Craig first, who was great and very easy to talk to and get along with and then our DJ for the wedding was Tim Gibson. We met a month before the wedding and went over all the details. He is very organized and wrote everything we said down on a word doc. He then communicated with my wedding coordinator and coordinator at our venue to make sure times and everything were correct! We met again one week before the wedding to review the material. Craig and Tim have never been to our venue before, so they actually took the time to go over there, check it out, and make sure their sound system would work OK. We greatly appreciated that! All of our guests were on the dance floor all night! They still talk about how great of a DJ Tim was! He listed to us and played the music we like and asked him to play as well as he took song requests from our friends and family that night. We would definitely hire Elite Sounds for any future events and highly recommend Tim Gibson as your DJ! Thank you SO much Elite Sounds for making our wedding night perfect!!
From start to finish, this company was awesome to work with! Craig was great during our first meeting - very easy to talk to and work with. The DJ for our wedding was Tim Gibson. Nothing but great things to say about this guy! We met a few weeks before the wedding and then had a phone meeting the week of the wedding. He was very organized and professional - made sure he had all the details for the ceremony and reception straight. My husband and I were so happy with the entertainment he provided during the reception. Everyone was raving about how great the music was. The dance floor was full until the very last song! HIGHLY recommend Elite Sounds for your next event, and Tim Gibson for your DJ! Thank you so much Craig and Tim!
Our wedding venue recommended Elite Sounds for our September 2017 wedding. My husband and I were really worried about music because our friends/family are not big dancers and tend to shy away from modern dance songs. Mike, our DJ, was amazing. He literally went by instinct and molded the song choices as he went to get more people on the dance floor (and it totally worked!!). He even took a request from my 89 year-old grandmother for "an older song," which resulted in her dancing for almost an hour! My extended family is still talking about how much people danced compared to other weddings they have gone to. I've already recommended Elite to someone else - totally worth it!
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 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 throughout the gorgeous event. If you don't want to have to worry about anything on your big day and want quality sound and equipment, Elite Sounds is worth the price. 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 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! 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. They went above and beyond to talk through day-of details and to work out logistical challenges to ensure that all went smoothly on our wedding day. DJ Tim did not disappoint with fun songs to get everyone out on the dance floor!
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 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. 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!
Ryan, and the whole Elite Sounds crew including Craig, were wonderful! We had a small wedding and reception, but he was able to keep people on the floor and dancing the night away. I also appreciated how much detail they put into our song choices and I can understand why RMEP has them as their exclusive DJ.
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 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 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 runs an incredible company. They provide so much, but mostly, provide peace of mind to a bride and groom looking to book a top notch DJ. We worked with Tim and he was so low key, laid back, fun, and easy to work with. The music at our wedding was fantastic-- we loved dancing the night away!
My fiancé and I had no idea where to start when picking a DJ for our ceremony and reception, and we lucked out completely when we chose to go with Elite Sounds. Craig was friendly and professional and was able to understand what I was looking for with my music when I hadn't 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.
Elite Sounds is fantastic to work with! They did our wedding during Easter weekend! Kenny was a phenomenal DJ! Ray was a hit at the photo booth! Craig knew exactly who worked well with us! Our guests are still raving about how amazing the music transitions were! We couldn't be more thrilled with how the dance party tires out! Kenny made it a memorable wedding for us, "one for the books!!!" I highly recommend them!
I highly recommend working with Elite Sounds! They are super professional, very organized and great listeners. From Craig who coordinated our contract and initial needs for our wedding day to Tim Gibson who was our DJ for the day, everyone we came in contact with at Elite Sounds was awesome! Added bonus - there was never dull moment on the dance floor the whole night! Thanks for helping make our day absolutely perfect!
