Derek is incredibly organized, but is also fun to work with! We talked when we initially decided to go with KC Mobile and he explained how the process worked with me. The website was easy to navigate and helped provide a framework for the flow of the night. The money process was... Read More smooth. Derek met with us the week before our wedding and talked through the schedule of the night, the style of our wedding, what we liked or didn't like, and he was still able to explain the thought process behind songs and the flow of the night. He was attentive to us the night of and helped make the night fun for us and the crowd! Derek had new games we had never seen during other weddings that everyone enjoyed. He kept the dance floor going and even participated in our end of the night sparkler sendoff! We would recommend him or his company to any other couple - very reasonably priced and they tailor their service to you! Very pleased with our work together.

Our wedding was 10/13/17 at The Elms Resort and Spa, we hired Derek as our DJ from KC Mobile DJ. When I met Derek I was in poor shape, we had just lost our event space for reasons that we could not control and Derek stepped up and did more than provide us with his DJ Services... Read More but also his wedding expertise! He had knowledge of most all event spaces, where to go and where not to go, he even helped me look at event spaces when I didn’t have the time (no Joke!). He helped make contact with other spaces and even helped me with getting a videographer (Lucas Cohen/Gassmann Media). Derek is a pro and you can tell he really has a passion for his trade, he does it because he Loves His Brides! He has so much fun and you can see it when he works! Always smiling, dressed nicely, and checks with the couple often to make sure things are just the way you want it. He not only did the ceremony and added/mixed all the songs we wanted but kept the party going into the evening. It was great to be able to text in song requests. He was not Loud or Annoying( I was fearful of this) he kept the music just right with the feel of the crowd. With Derek, I knew that with all his experience that I could relieve any fears or worries for my special day! I would highly recommend him anytime!

Derek Hoffman

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.
