Our DJ was by far the best vendor we dealt with during the wedding. He had so many good ideas for not only the music but for many of the other aspects of our wedding. If I were to ever get married again, God forbid, I would book again.
I honestly don't know how to say everything I felt about our service from KC Mobile DJ...but WOW! The night went off without a hitch. Derek made sure the evening flowed perfectly. The songs were spot on and the guests loved the text request line. The scavenger hunt at the beginning of the night was a blast. I honestly think the DJ is the MOST important part of a wedding reception and we were amazed by ours!
How wonderful and professional Derek and his team are ! thank you so much for those beautiful memories, we can tell you love every minute of your job starting from first meeting, review day and wedding day. All my guests appreciated you a lot, I will recommend you to everyone ! Gen.
the amount of interaction and great song choices had our guests interested, involved, and on our dance floor all night. We got SO many compliments on our dj, we are so thankful Derek helped to make both our ceremony and reception music go perfectly.
KC Mobile DJ did a wonderful job with our wedding!!! Derek was so easy to work with and did such a great job engaging the crowd and making sure everyone was having fun at the reception. The scavenger hunt game was a great touch and everyone had a blast! I would highly suggest them for your wedding!
Absolutely amazing! I highly recommend kc mobile dj. Derek is extremely professional, has a great sense of humor and knows how to get the crowd going!! Five stars no doubt!
WOW!! Where to start with Derek! SUPER SUPER AMAZING! One hour before my ceremony was to start we realized the dress in the bag was NOT mine! Derek immediately jumped on it. He got his assistant to run to David’s Bridal with the plan to meet my brother at the Liberty Hospital (about half way). Once the battle was won (it was a painful one), the party was on!! Derek did a FABULOUS job of keeping the floor hopping! He even stepped out on the dance floor to show off some of his own moves! (Okay, he probably felt like my less than skilled group needed some help!) His enthusiasm and ability to handle the wide array of requests made the night fly by and kept everyone dancing. I cannot thank Derek and his team enough for saving what started out as nightmare and turned it into a night of dreams!!
I cannot say enough wonderful things about Derek and his team. I have never met a more professional and wonderful group as KC Mobile DJ. They plan and prepare with a wonderful worksheet that helps you design an agenda that maps out everything you want in your wedding. He also helped us through the disaster of the AC being broken in our venue on a heat warning day (It was 94 out) and he still had people up and dancing. I would not and could not have survived this day without him. He literally saved our wedding. Thank you!!!!!
I believe that if our wedding was amazing, it is all thanks to KC Mobile DJ. Fernando was fantastic, managing songs perfectly so that the dance floor was never empty! We also really loved the games, they are so great to set the mood. All of our interactions with KC Mobile DJ before the wedding were smooth and fun, I was never nervous about a possible organizational glitch, and we keep hearing compliments about how fun our event was, which is exactly what we were aiming for.
Derek at KC Mobile DJ was amazing! The most fun DJ, and dance party ever! He kept the dance floor bumping, was SO easy to work with and accommodating, and beyond everything else, made sure we were taken care of every step of the way. He entertained the crowds, and the text message requests were a huge hit. Thank you for such a wonderful night, we are so grateful for you and everything you did!
We could not be happier with the wonderful job KC Mobile DJ did with our reception. I was a wreck and so nervous, but Derek did such an amazing job with EVERYTHING, it made our big day even easier to enjoy❤
KC Mobile DJ was great. They made sure our experience was great. Their online system was very convenient for our busy schedule. We loved having them as our DJ. Nick and Dereck were so easy to work with and they made sure we were more than satisfied.
Great overall experience. They meet with you beforehand to get the details straight and help you with suggestions. Our DJ, Travis, made sure the sound ran smoothly during the ceremony. He facilitated the reception order of events as well as music during the reception and dancing. You could tell he really enjoyed his job and he did well in mixing the songs together. There was variety and he didn't let songs go too long. Would recommend KC Mobile DJ and our DJ, Travis, to anyone.
Nick, our DJ did a really good job. We had somewhat different requests as we needed international music including bollywood, and Nick was able to do it very well. People had a great time. Derek and Nick were very accommodating in the lead up to our event and easy to work with.
We used KC Mobile DJ for our wedding on April 22nd. They were FANTASTIC! I cannot say enough about the great, fun experience. They are truly top notch and they make sure everything runs smoothly for your wedding/reception. We had Fernando as our DJ and he was amazing- had everyone on the dance floor and really coordinated the entire night perfectly. We worked a lot with Derek booking the services and he was great as well. They are very professional and I would highly recommend them for your wedding or any event where you need DJ services.
I loved all of my wedding vendors and KC Mobile DJ is no exception. They were incredibly friendly, organized, and fun! They went above and beyond to make sure our reception was a blast and everything we wanted it to be. Their booth and lighting was beautiful. We received so many compliments on how good the music was and almost everyone was up dancing. I can't say enough about KC Mobile DJ. If you go with them, you won't regret it!!
They kept the atmosphere just right, made all their queues and brought the funk; what more could you ask for. Very helpful and easy to work with.
Derek was great!! He was very thorough in his introduction meeting and follow up consultation before the wedding to review the details. Derek was very honest about his professional opinions when asked, and was very knowledgeable from his experience. He also made sure to be at my wedding rehearsal to make sure everything went smoothly the day of. Our reception had a mix of crowds from early/mid twenties to our older family members. Derek's entertainment appealed to every age group and everyone had a blast! He played interactive games with the crowd that were a big hit, and the music was great. I would highly recommend!
Derek was absolutely amazing!! From the very beginning, even just contacting him, he always got back with me very quickly about any questions I may have had and set up an appointment with me quickly to review all of the options we could have. A couple weeks before the wedding, he met with us again, to review last minute details and had great ideas for songs for the bouquet toss, garter toss, everything we hadn't even thought of! He even did a super fun "scavenger hunt" with all of our guests, in order to determine which table would be dismissed first for food. It was hilarious and all of my guests had a great time! He is full of ideas and works wonderfully with each member of the party. The music was perfect and the reception was a heck of a party! Thank you so much for helping to make my wedding day the best party ever (and for making the process of planning a breeze!)!!
I had a great experience with Derek. He made the planning so easy and stress free! The music was great, the lighting was great! I have no complaints. Derek is very professional and well prepared to make your day go smoothly! Thank You Derek!
Derek is by far one of the best DJ's we work with at Restoration 1894! He is very professional and has the most complete and state of the art setup in the industry! I recommend him for any occasssion and can always count on him to accommodate all our clients with the best of service!
wow! Derek was seriously awesome, we were so impressed! Not only did he pick great songs, but the reception flowed great! We had many compliments about him throughout the night! Way to go Derek! you rock! :)
My reception would not have been the same without KC Mobile DJ! I still have friends telling me he was the best DJ they had ever seen. He made the wedding so much fun! He had everyone out dancing on the dance floor (adults and children!) and everyone was having a blast! I highly recommend hiring him as your DJ!
Derek did a great job! He made everything happen that I wanted to!! He is very affordable and does a super great job!
Derek did an incredible job turning our reception into one big party! We even had a guest come up to us and say that they had never seen that many guests out on a dance floor at a wedding before (and they've been to a lot of weddings). Overall, KC Mobile DJ did an incredible job and we would not have changed a thing! Thanks Derek!
Meet The Owner
I come from a musically inclined family. Although. I'm the black sheep. The best I can do is push buttons. Growing up, our friends, knew our house is where the sound was, so naturally, when they started getting married, they me asked to DJ their wedding. The first one was a travesty... but I learned from it. And oddly enough, we had 2 referrals from that wedding. The next year we had 5 weddings, then 10... Now we're celebrating with 70+ couples per year. We love the joy in celebrating weddings and build unique relationships with our clients before, during and after their big day.
